Water Fluoridation

Fluoride Safety

The City of London, Canada claims that the fluoride added to its water, known as Hydrofluorosilicic Acid (HFS), comes from an ore mined and processed in Florida. One only needs to search ‘fluoride mined in Florida’ to learn that the fluoride added to London Canada’s drinking water comes from Monsanto’s competitor – Mosaic, another large producer of fertilizers and pesticides. Mosaic is also an offshoot of the duPont chemical company.

Hydrofluorosilicic Acid (HFS) is classified as a toxic waste and was the key chemical in atomic bomb production during WWII – known as the ultra-secret Manhattan Project.  Information on the effects of fluoride on human health was somehow considered ‘Top Secret” and consequently classified under ‘national security reasons’.   Over fifty years later, the declassified government documents show that initial lawsuits arising from DuPont’s use of fluoride in their A-bomb production, was over the damage caused by the fluoride chemical used in the manufacture of the atomic bomb by DuPont.

This begs the question: Did the DuPont Chemical Company, thinking only of its reputation, convince the US government to add fluoride to the nation’s water supply as a means to escape liability from the damage fluoride caused to local farmers in New Jersey during the Manhattan Project?

The United States and Canada are two countries that permits adding  fluoride, a toxic chemical, to the nation’s water supply.  The arguments for and against fluoridation have not changed much since the beginning back in the sixties. Health Canada and the World Health Organization (WHO) can cite evidence about the efficacy of fluoride in dental health.  As with any scientific report, it can be manipulated by ‘what do you want the results to be?’

The DuPont company patented non-biodegradable plastic in 1937, after ensuring the biodegradable hempen plastic, was not a threat.

The DuPont chemical company is notorious for escaping liability.  A chemical DuPont used in the manufacture of teflon, called perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and referred to as C8 was known to cause cancer, yet any study to this was specifically ignored.
