Fluoride in city water

Attend any city council or other government agency deciding on whether or not to fluoridate your local water supply, and you'll get health officials asserting that fluoride is natural and thus safe. They will not tell you that naturally occurring fluoride is calcium fluoride, while the stuff purchased by communities to fluoridate their water is sodium fluoride which is extremely toxic, a mixing of hexafluorosilicic acid and sodium silicofluoride. So the question is, what is the parts per million that it is deemed safe in the drinking water, and what are the county records of what they dump in our drinking water supply. Oh, do be encouraged to do your own research on the products mentioned. Regards.

fluoride in the water is a mind-control conspiracy by the goverment. Read the chemical name of most psycho-active drugs like given for schizophrenia and depression and you will find fluro-something in there!

Whocares, you bring up an important issue. Of interest is the source of the hexafluorosilicic acid - it is an industrial waste produced during the fertilizer production process.

Most toothpaste uses sodium monofluorophosphate. Fluoride gels use sodium fluoride. Studies have shown both these compounds to be efficacious in the reduction of caries (cavities) when applied topically (to the surface of the tooth). Ingestion of fluoride compounds (such as through drinking water) though has absolutely no effect on dental health, this has been proven as well. But ingestion of fluoride compounds does lead to various health problems. The recommended approach for fluoride is to apply it with a toothpaste, a gel, or a fluoride rinse. All of these should be spit out after application since fluoride is toxic.

Your post contains an error, sodium fluoride used by dentists is NaF. It is not made of hexafluorosilicic acid which is H2SiF6. Both are toxic, but NaF is at least useful for reducing cavities, and completely safe if used properly (spit out the excess).

No toothpaste contains hexafluorosilicic acid, no dentist recommends it, and no study has ever shown it to be equivalent to the totally different compound NaF. They are as different as water H2O and sodium peroxide H2O2, which we know are totally different things. If you drink a pint of peroxide it will kill you, this is not the case with water.

There are some communities that add sodium fluoride to their water. These are a small minority because it is expensive to do this. Hexafluorosilicic acid on the other hand is nearly free to acquire. Use of it in municipal water supplies came as a result of lobbying by fertilizer manufacturers who were looking for a cheaper way to dispose of their toxic waste.
