1. Fluoridation chemicals are byproducts of industrial fertilizer production… Really
Hard as it is to believe, the three chemicals used to “fluoridate” drinking water are all industrial byproducts of fertilizer production and this is openly admitted even by leading fluoridation promoters such as the U.S. Center for Disease Control.
As the CDC’s chief fluoridation engineer has explained:
“All of the fluoride chemicals used in the U.S. for water fluoridation, sodium fluoride, sodium fluorosilicate, and fluorosilicic acid, are byproducts of the phosphate fertilizer industry.[i]
The National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences similarly reports that:
“the most commonly used [drinking water] additives are silicofluorides, not the fluoride salts used in dental products (such as sodium fluoride and stannous fluoride). Silicofluorides are one of the by-products from the manufacture of phosphate fertilizers.”[ii]
