This is the breakdown of what’s in the city’s water after Hydrofluorosilicic Acid has been added to the water supply. The report was provided by Nutrien, the supplier of Hydrofluorosilicic Acid for the city. Keep in mind that Hydrofluorosilicic Acid is NOT Sodium Fluoride. It’s the byproduct of industrial fertilizer waste. Note the elements of Lead and Arsenic in the water and the EPA has ruled that there are no safe levels for either. Let’s get the lead (and arsenic and Hydrofluorosilicic Acid) out of our water. Vote YES on 11/5 to end fluoridation in Fred.
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.
