Fluoride-What You Should Know About Municipal Water Fluoridation


Published on

Do you know where the fluoride in your drinking water comes from? If you don't, you should. You can take action by becoming a member of the Fluoride Action Network, and letting your voice be heard. If you are an opponent being involuntarily fluoridated, I strongly encourage you to write to your municipal water authority, your Mayor, your City Council, and your State and Local government authorities.

Fluoride-What You Should Know About Municipal Water Fluoridation

  1. 1. Fluoride Toxins In Your Tap Air Products Internal Use Only
  2. 2. Do You Know Where the Fluoride in Your Drinking Water and Toothpaste Comes From? Air Products Internal Use Only
  3. 3. Most of it Starts Out as Phosphate Ore Mined to Make Fertilizers Which Contains from 2% to 4% Fluoride
  4. 4. The Ore is Then Treated With Sulfuric Acid
  5. 5. Which Releases the Fluoride in the Ore as Gaseous Hydrofluoric Acid (HF) "Hydrogen fluoride is a highly dangerous gas, forming corrosive and penetrating hydrofluoric acid upon contact with tissue. The gas can also cause blindness by rapid destruction of the corneas." Source WikiPedia and Silicon Tetrafluoride (SiF4)
  6. 6. In Order for the Mining Companies to Prevent These Tremendously Toxic Gases From Escaping Into the Atmosphere, They Are Removed By Wet Scrubbers,
  7. 7. Which Convert the Combined Gases to Hexafluorsilicic Acid.
  8. 8. If You or I Dumped Hexafluorsilic Acid Into Our Municipal Water System
  9. 9. It Would Be Considered an Act of Terrorism
  10. 10. This Chemical is Toxic, Corrosive, and a Pollutant
  11. 11. Yet These Phosphate Mining Companies Package It Into 55 Gallon Drums or Into Tanker Trucks and It
  12. 12. Is Delivered to 70% of the Municipal Water Departments in the United States and Added to Our Municipal Water Supplies
  13. 13. This Chemical Will Eat Through Concrete. If It is Spilled, It Requires a HazMat Team to Clean it Up.
  14. 14. See also: Fluoride therapy and Water fluoridation Sodium fluoride is used as a cleaning agent (e.g., as a "laundry sour"). [7] A variety of specialty chemical applications exist in synthesis and extractive metallurgy. It reacts with electrophilic chlorides including acyl chlorides, sulfur chlorides, and phosphorus chloride. [12] Like other fluorides, sodium fluoride finds use in desilylation in organic synthesis. The fluoride is the reagent for the synthesis of fluorocarbons. [citation needed] See also: Fluoride poisoning The lethal dose for a 70 kg (154 lb) human is estimated at 5–10 g.[7] Sodium fluoride is classed as toxic by both inhalation (of dusts or aerosols) and ingestion.[13] In high enough doses, it has been shown to affect the heart and circulatory system. For occupational exposures, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health have established occupational exposure limits at 2.5 mg/m3 over an eight-hour time- weighted average.[14] In the higher doses used to treat osteoporosis, plain sodium fluoride can cause pain in the legs and incomplete stress fractures when the doses are too high; it also irritates the stomach, sometimes so severely as to cause ulcers. Slow-release and enteric- coated versions of sodium fluoride do not have gastric side effects in any significant
  15. 15. In high concentrations, soluble fluoride salts are toxic and skin or eye contact with high concentrations of many fluoride salts is dangerous. Referring to a common salt of fluoride, sodium fluoride (NaF), the lethal dose for most adult humans is estimated at 5 to 10 g (which is equivalent to 32 to 64 mg/kg elemental fluoride/kg body weight).[1][2][3] Ingestion of fluoride can produce gastrointestinal discomfort at doses at least 15 to 20 times lower (0.2–0.3 mg/kg) than lethal doses.[4
  16. 16. “Silicofluoride agents used for artificial fluoridation of public water supplies contain arsenic. For example, HFSA is typically reported by suppliers to contain about 30 parts per million (ppm), or 30 milligrams of arsenic per kilogram of HFSA. This amount of arsenic in HFSA delivers about 0.078 micrograms of arsenic per liter of drinking water, based on calculations shown in Reference I. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) has set a health-based standard for arsenic in drinking water, known as the Maximum Contaminant Level Goal, of zero, based on arsenic's ability to cause cancer in humans.” J. William Hirzy, Ph.D., Chemist in Residence, with American University
