New Fluoride was a synthetic drug developed by Stephanie Chiu's father that aimed to improve the quality of drinkable water.
In early 2012, New Fluoride was introduced into the water supplies of various settlements in China, causing significant damage to the local population, and in a small town in the United States. The U.S. operation was partially exposed when a young activist by the name of Susan Drayton broke into the water supply of her home town, Prince George, and stole a sample of the drug, with the intention of leaking it to the press.
Although Susan was apprehended and jailed, news of Abstergo's operation in Prince George still got out. Following this, documents were leaked on the 'Fluoride Enhancement Studies', resulting in Abstergo being placed under investigation by the U.S. government. As a result, the company was forced to try and hasten the launch of Eye-Abstergo to 21 December 2012, in order to avoid the expected asset freeze.
By 2014, Abstergo started working with the Food and Drug Administration to organize a relaunch of the New Flouride project.
