Daniel G. Stockin, MPH is a career public health professional with 25 years' experience. He has a Masters Degree in Public Health from San Diego State University and a Bachelors Degree in Biology from Westmont College. He is known internationally for his work on the issue of harm from water fluoridation and from ingested fluorides.
Mr. Stockin is the former manager of the EPA Western Regional Lead Training Center. He managed more than 125 instructors in the fields of hazardous materials management, air and water pollution, site assessment and remediation, and environmental conservation at the University of California San Diego Extension. He has real world experience in toxic assessment and working with biologic agents, radioactive materials, and hazardous chemicals.
Mr. Stockin is CEO of the nonprofit Lillie Center for Energy and Health Studies. He is co-recipient of the 2011 Albert Burgstahler Scientific Integrity Award for his work toward ending water fluoridation. In his more than 10 years work at The Lillie Center, his accomplishments range from working to coordinate efforts that resulted in the National Kidney Foundation withdrawing its endorsement of water fluoridation to breaking the news that our black citizens are disproportionately harmed by fluorides and water fluoridation, and securing statements by key civil rights leaders to oppose water fluoridation.
Additionally he has investigated potential ethics violations at the CDC and filed a formal ethics complaint with the Centers for Disease Control about its methods used to promote water fluoridation.
Mr. Stockin has his hand on the pulse of the science and the resultant harm caused by drinking fluoride chemicals. He has spent much time providing documentation to the legal community, political leaders and the media about harm from fluorides in order to move forward court cases and investigations. He aptly coined the phrase "Fluoridegate" and published the first piece about the Fluoridegate scandal.
