I have listened to witnesses in front of Congress talk about fluoride and one expert witness said that the big age companies wanted to keep silicofluorides a by product of fertilizers --as an additive of water - not only as a source of revenue but a good way to get rid of this by product. The expert witness use to work for the EPA -- or still does - not sure - I cannot remember - nor do I remember his name. He said put it on your teeth but never ever swallow it!

I'm sure I've read about it. What's been going on is another example of how a wasteproduct gets renamed and repurposed with a 'lil help from the Environmental Media Association (EMA) so BigAg doesn't have to expend $$$ disposing of their waste properly.... think "biosolids" like Milorganite. I'm fine with adding fluoride to mouth rinses.... it can be SPIT out!!!

Nine states propose 16 anti-fluoridation bills in 2013 to protect public against poison
excerpt from above:
Quote:
Things are heating up on the fluoride front as states and municipalities all across the country rethink their official water fluoridation policies. According to the Fluoride Action Network (FAN), some 16 pieces of legislation across nine states were introduced or passed just within the past year to protect the public against this pervasive poison.

In Utah, for instance, the Safe Drinking Water Disclosure Act was passed back in April, requiring that all shipments of fluoride chemicals coming into the state be accompanied by certificates of analysis detailing the presence of any outside contaminants. The law reportedly took effect on July 1, allowing local water utilities to end their fluoridation programs in the event that certificates are not provided.

Fluoride additives, as you may recall, are often laced with…

Harvard Study: Fluoride Lowers Children?s Intelligence By 7 IQ Points Washington's Blog
excerpt from above:
Quote:
The Harvard School for Public Health reports:

In a meta-analysis, researchers from Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and China Medical University in Shenyang for the first time combined 27 studies and found strong indications that fluoride may adversely affect cognitive development in children. Based on the findings, the authors say that this risk should not be ignored, and that more research on fluoride’s impact on the developing brain is warranted.

The study [click for abstract] was published online in Environmental Health Perspectives on July 20, 2012.

Environmental Health Perspectives is a publication of the United States National Institutes of Health’s National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.

Harvard’s announcement continues...
