Most people would be shocked to discover that the fluoride used to fluoridate our water is a
toxic waste by-product from the aluminium and phosphate fertilizer industry.
Sodium silicofluoride and fluorosilicic acid are toxic by-products that contain arsenic, lead, cadmium
and mercury. These compound forms of fluoride do not occur in nature. Most people including dentists do not realise that industrial grade silicofluorides are used to fluoridate and not pharmaceutical grade sodium fluoride as you would assume. ‘Sodium fluoride, which is a far simpler toxin than the fluoride compounds used for most water fluoridation, has also been used for rat and cockroach poisons, so there is no question that it is highly toxic’ (Mercola 2010). No toxicology studies have ever been performed on the Silicofluoride used in water fluoridation schemes.
The EPA decided this toxic waste was unsafe to be released into the environment. It would need to be disposed of under...
