    New York – March 2007 -- Trace amounts of arsenic are found in fluoride chemicals added to drinking water supplies, reports the U.S. Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) website. (1)

    Fluoridation is a controversial attempt to reduce tooth decay in tap-water consumers.

    Fluoridation chemicals - sodium fluoride, sodium fluorosilicate, and fluorosilicic acid (FSA) – are all derived from the manufacture of phosphate fertilizer, reports the CDC. Trace amounts of unwanted contaminants, such as antimony, barium, beryllium, arsenic and others, are allowed to remain in
    fluoridation chemicals before flowing through America’s faucets (2)

    The CDC reports, tests by National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) revealed arsenic was present in sample batches of FSA. When trace amounts were present, the treated water had an average of 0.43 parts per billion (ppb) of arsenic, with a high of 1.66 ppb attributable to the fluoride additive. (2)

    The NSF sets the allowable level of arsenic in fluoridation chemicals at 2.5 ppb. The maximum contaminant level (MCL) of arsenic in treated water is 10 ppb, set by the Environmental Protection Agency. But the maximum contaminant level goal (MCLG) of arsenic in drinking water is zero (5) and is based on health risks; however, the actual level permitted (MCL) is above 0, to account for difficulty in removing it or in measuring it. (6)

    “No water company should purposely be adding arsenic to water supplies –even when it’s attached to a chemical perceived to be beneficial,” says Beeber.

    The reason we have arsenic or flouride in the drinking water is that those corporations that generate it making whatever they make need to get rid of the stuff because it's TOXIC! It's a real pain to dispose of it and it cuts into their bottom line. They save billions when they can find someone else to put a drop in this bottle or millions of gallons into the reserviors. Problem solved! Then we'll tell the People that it's good for them!

    Too many people in the world. "They" have to figure out many possible ways for people to die.

    Culling the herd...
