Fluoride Action Network — All You Need To Know About The Dangers Of Fluoride
Padraig O’Hara and Sam Brannon Break It All Down
Below is the Safety Data Sheet obtained from the City of Fredericksburg of the chemical used to fluoridate the municipal water supply. The chemical is HYDROFLUOROSILICIC ACID and is delivered by Napco Chemical Company. Hydrofluorosilicic Acid is NOT pharmaceutical dental fluoride (sodium fluoride) used in toothpaste. It is an industrial waste byproduct from the fertilizer factories that is a labeled hazardous waste (per EPA), and PROHIBITED from being dumped into the oceans, lakes, rivers or landfills.
The certificate of analysis (below) verifies the presence of arsenic (AS) and lead (PB) in the hydrofluorosilicic acid shipped to Fredericksburg. This analysis provided by Napco originates from Nutrien Fertilizer Company who ships the chemical to Pencco who in turn ships to Napco, the supplier to Fredericksburg. Both lead and arsenic are known carcinogens and therefore the EPA has set the safe for these at 0. Let’s stop adding industrial waste and cancer causing contaminants to our water. Vote YES on 11/5 to end fluoridation in Fredericksburg.
Who We Are
We are a local community coalition, comprised of parents, health practitioners, and environmentally aware citizens dedicated to halting the addition of industrial grade fluoride chemicals (hydrofluorosilicic acid) into the City of Fredericksburg’s water supply. We have acquired enough signatures of registered voters to amend the city charter through a ballot initiative. Therefore this measure will be on the ballot for a special election on November 5th, 2019. This gives the citizens of Fredericksburg the opportunity to vote to stop adding industrial grade fluoride (a unprocessed waste by product of the fertilizer factories) to our municipal water for the health and well-being of our community. We are a non-partisan group and not affiliated with any political party.
A Citizen Makes A Logical “Choice” Against Fluoridation
Our good friend Mo Saidi came to our ballot celebration and shared how he came to a logical conclusion that our water should not be fluoridated, especially without our consent.
