Where does the fluoride added to water come from?

The main fluoride chemical added to water (hydrofluorosilicic acid) is an industrial by-product from the phosphate fertilizer industry. Unlike the fluoride used in toothpaste, hydrofluorosilicic acid is not pharmaceutical-grade quality. It is an unpurified, industrial-grade, corrosive acid which has been linked, in several recent studies, to increased levels of lead in children’s blood.

Does fluoride occur naturally in water?

Like arsenic and lead, very small amounts of fluoride can be found in most water supplies. However, the level of fluoride that naturally-occurs in water is usually much lower than the level artificially added in water fluoridation programs.

Same thing but this time THEY have no idea what they are talking about




en.wikipedia.org...:Groundwater-fluoride-world.svg
Geographical areas associated with groundwater having over 1.5 mg/L of naturally occurring fluoride, which is above recommended levels.[10]




en.wikipedia.org...:Southern-Arizona-fluoride-groundwater.jpeg
Detail of southern Arizona. Areas in darker blues have groundwater with over 2 mg/L of naturally occurring fluoride.

A national panel of scientists reported Wednesday that high levels of naturally occurring fluoride in drinking water are leaving children in some communities at risk of tooth enamel damage and adults prone to weakened bones that could lead to fractures.

The scientists unanimously recommended that the federal limit on fluoride in drinking water be lowered to protect people in communities where high levels leach into the water from natural sources, such as rocks or soil.

Dr Mercola has released an article dated 20 July 2010 with regard to the problems that people in Indian villages are facing due to the high content of NATURAL fluoridation in their water supply.

EFII learned that in a town in India called Gaudiyan with a population of around 200 people that 135 have bone deformities! This is being caused by the excessive amount of naturally occurring fluoride in their water supplies. It is also reported that in villages in other parts of India that the children are being affected. They are being found to have Lamellar Congenital cataract which is causing them to lose their vision due to the lens of the eye becoming damaged.

Dr Mercola says in his article:

“This is an important topic for a number of reasons and one of the most important is that it helps dispel the popular public health myth that fluoride in the water supply is normal and actually prevents dental caries.

Americans living longer, but sicker

Read more: www.upi.com...

Hope this help to those that do not understand what life expectancy and quality of life means this days in the US.



adults are living longer but they are living those years sicker, while younger adults are getting more functionally limited sooner, health officials say.

The 33rd annual report on the health status of the nation -- prepared by the secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services for the president and Congress -- says in 2007, American men could expect to live 3.5 years longer and women 1.6 years longer than they did in 1990. U.S. life expectancy is 79.9 years, about six years shorter than that of Japan, which has the highest life expectancy.

Longer life expectancy increases the risk of chronic diseases including hypertension, diabetes, end-stage renal disease, certain types of cancer, Alzheimer's disease and other dementias.


In 2010,

What a future for Americans "living longer" this days.



The US, while ranking only 49th worldwide in life expectancy, is targeting the wrong problem: It is investing too much in things that increase quantity of life and not enough in things that increase quality of life. Finding better ways to improve our air quality and to have a healthier environment in general would go a long way in reaching both goals: increasing life expectancy and increasing quality of life.

Been there, invented that, three years ago. The original non-browning apple is called Envy and was invented in New Zealand. Our one is not genetic modification though, just a normal cross between two different apples with a cool and marketable side effect.
Must have scared the Americans into having to do Genetic Engineering just to catch up.

They had the story on Radio New Zealand in 2009.

Updated at 9:35 am on 18 April 2009

Overseas demand for a new variety of New Zealand apple, that does not turn brown when it is cut, has been so great that growers cannot keep up.

The variety, Envy, is a cross between Royal Gala and Braeburn apples.

It was developed by scientists from HortResearch, now part of the Institute of Plant and Food research.

Marketing rights are held by ENZA, whose global variety manager Brian D'Ath says up to 3,500 cartons will be sent to Asia and North America this year.

He expects the volume will increase substantially next year, to up to 30,000 cartons.

Mr D'Ath says 300,000 trees are being planted this winter.

Plans are also underway to increase its availability by growing it in the northern hemisphere, so the market can be supplied year-round.

It is likely to be another two or three years before Envy is offered locally.
