Repeal of Water Fluoridation Legislation

Comment 4th July 2010

As a previous correspondent noted it is illegal to dump fluoride into rivers, the sea or landfill sites.  In this context it is interesting to note a statement made in 1983 by Rebecca Hanmer, Deputy Administrator for Water of the US Environmental Protection Agency that, "in regard to the use of fluosilicic acid as a source of fluoride for fluoridation, this agency regards such use as an ideal solution to a long-standing problem.  By recovering byproduct fluosilicic acid from fertilizer manufacturing, water and air pollution are minimized, and water utilities have a low-cost source of fluoride available to them."

It would seem therefore that pro-fluoridating authorities have been happy so solve a pollution problem by diluting the offending industrial waste in public water supplies for decades. 

Why does this matter?

Surely adding a polluting poison to the public water supply is important?
