Water Toxicity - Hydrofluorosilicic acid

To the City of Waterloo Council Members:

Fluoride is now everywhere.  It is in the air we breathe and in the food and beverages we consume.  It is impossible to eliminate our body?s systemic ingestion of fluoride.
"In 1997, the EPA estimated that Americans were ingesting nearly five times more fluoride than in 1971 - from food and drinks alone."
Smith G. 2001, Why Fluoride Is An Environmental Issue, Earth Island Institute, 22nd meeting of the ISFR, August 24-27

Here is a list, not complete by any means, on the adverse health effects (click each title for ref. or go to to get the full reports):

Fluoride And The Brain
Fluoride And Cancer
Fluoride And Children
Fluoride And Dental Fluorosis
Fluoride And Hypersensitivity
Fluoride And Kidneys
Fluoride And Skeletal Fluorosis
Fluoride And Thyroid Function
Fluorosilicate Toxicity
Fluorosilicates Increase Blood Lead Levels

The above is bad enough, adding insult to injury, an untested industry waste product Hydrofluorosilicic acid which includes traces of arsenic and lead is being used to fluoridate the water - Fluoride also increases the up take of Aluminum and possibly other toxic metals!

Regarding tooth protection here is what Bill Osmunson DDS, MPH, Aesthetic Dentistry of Bellevue, Bellevue, Wash. has to say...

"As a dentist with a master's degree in public health for more than 25 years, I promoted water fluoridation and fluoride supplements. Current research has shifted, finding fluoridation in developed communities is unnecessary. Most European dental associations no longer recommend it.

Dentists are puzzled and can't explain why fluoridation no longer appears to reduce dental decay. One theory is the total fluoride intake from all sources, such as pesticides, dental and medical products and post-harvest fumigants, has reached high enough levels to provide the so-called "optimal" dose. [halo effect]

Significant increase in dental fluorosis in children, from 22 percent to 32 percent, supports this theory. Another theory is fluoridation never did reduce tooth decay, and flawed historical studies are at fault. The evidence is strong ? fluoridation no longer reduces tooth decay.. Evidence for fluoridation intervention is lacking.

Dental expenses are a good example. After 60 years of fluoridation, people fluoridated should show a reduction in dental expenses if fluoridation were effective. Several studies have shown either no reduction in dental expenses or slight increases.

Non-fluoridated Portland, Ore. (19 percent of Oregon is fluoridated) had $210 average, annual dental expenses per person. Across the river, fluoridated Vancouver, Wash. (46 percent of Washington was fluoridated at the time) had $215. Add the cost of bottled water for infants and those who choose not to have fluoridated water, medical risks and cosmetic treatments for dental fluorosis damage, fluoridation equipment, chemicals and maintenance, and fluoridation makes no cents or sense, unless you own the company profiting.

Public health agencies are marching soldiers and do not question their orders. They have been told to "promote fluoridation," and they do so, regardless of the evidence."

Even one health effect in the incomplete list above, is reason enough to remove this toxin from the water given that anyone can get fluoride if they wish but, due to your inaction so far, no one can avoid it!

So ? Why do we need to continue to ADD fluoride to our drinking water?

I implore you to do your fiduciary duty to remove this toxin from our water immediately. This action is essential to prevent the continued damage to the health of your constituents.   Remember, these are serious health effects compared to the paltry and/or perceived if not moot dental benefits. The longer you delay, more will get hurt which could indeed include your own loved one and/or ones if not already !

I look forward to your response regarding your action on this important matter.

Thank you,

Chris Gupta P. Eng.

The impacts of fluoride along with its its synergistic effects with suitable case study and world wide status needs to be updated and loaded in the site.

Hi, Just yesterday,I learned that Hydroflourosilicic Acid is being adding to the city water supply in Florida. This is a by product of fertilizer production. Hydroflourosilicic Acid is categorized as a HAZARDOUS INDUSTRIAL WASTE. A company called Mossaic (Cargill Inc.) is one of the chief producers of this waste material. This substance is different than Natural Flouride. The mining operations in Florida involve mining for phosphates from phosphate Rock. There is absolutely no legitimate reason to be adding this toxic material to the water supply. Every citizen should stand up against such sinister additives to our food and water which make us ill, send us to the hospital and reduce our quality of life and eventually kill us. Companies sell this toxic material to the state to mix into our water supply. They make money on selling this hazardous material when in fact they would have to spend money in disposing off this hazardous material. This is a convenient way to poison humanity as well as make money doing it! This practice needs to be brought to public awareness at all levels so that we may protect ourselves and our children from these rogues.

When i found out that Hydroflourosilicic Acid Is scraped from the inside of the towers from fertilizer plats I didnt know how to react. My children drink and bath in this water, what are these people thinking. It seams like the goal here is to kill us slowly, what the hell people why are we not doing anything about this.

Just watched a YouTube video discussing the toxic substance being added to already questionable drinking water.I am outraged that state and federal governments know of this and continue allowing it.Americas' health care will soon be in the hands of the same people who know this is happening.We need a Second American Revolution.
