comment What is Nivul Peh and who decides what it is
There seem to be 2 questions here. Nivul Peh has already been answered - see deja-jew's reference. The permissibility of Dam* or He** (as you refer to them) is a separate question.

comment Jewish Books on Education
I've not read Rabbi Kelemen's book: I know and admire the man. But it is apparently backed up by scientific studies. Rav Wolbe's book doesn't do that.
