For some reason the fluoride pushers seem to think all fluoride compounds are equivalent in their toxicity levels. The original studies done were
actually done on naturally occurring "calcium fluoride", which is the least toxic of the fluoride compounds. The LD50 level of a chemical is what it
takes to kill 50% of the population.
Let's do a comparison of the LD50 level of these compounds.
LD50 level of Calcium Fluoride = 3,750 mg/km
LD50 level of Hexafluorosilicic Acid = 70 mg/km
LD50 level of Sodium Fluoride = 52 mg/km
As anyone can see, these fluoride compounds used in water fluoridation are no where near as safe to use as naturally occurring "calcium fluoride". In
the USA, they are now mainly using Hexafluorosilicic Acid. Hexafluorosilicic acid is also known by other names such as Fluorosilicic acid,
Fluosilicic acid, Hydrofluorosilic acid, Silicofluoride, Silicofluoric acid and Dihydrogen hexafluorosilicate. (Has almost as many names as MSG).
According to Wikipedia, "Owing to the corrosive nature of HF [hydrofluoric acid], its production is accompanied by the dissolution of silicate
minerals [sand?], and, in this way, significant amounts of fluorosilicic acid is generated."
Fluorosilicic acid is used in water fluoridation.
