STOP ADDING TOXIC WASTE TO SEATTLE WATER

JOIN WASHINGTON ACTION FOR SAFE WATER AND CONTRIBUTE www.WASW.org

 DRINKING WATER ADDITIVE LEACHES LEAD. The type of fluoride utilized in Seattle, Everett, and Tacoma, fluorosilicic acid, contains lead and leaches lead from pipes and fittings. Lead permeates all cells in the body, reducesIQ, and causes kidney disease and high blood pressure.

FLUORIDE SWITCH. Fluoridation started in 1945 with sodium fluoride (from the aluminum and uranium industry), but the supply was soon insufficient. Fluorosilicic acid, (from the phosphate fertilizer industry) was substituted in the 1950s, being cheaper and more abundant. Studies by Coplan, Masters, Maas, and Sawan show that there is much more lead in tap water fluoridated with fluorosilicic acid than with sodium fluoride. Why?

SILICIC ACID. When diluted, fluorosilicic acid breaks down primarily into fluoride ion, hydrogen fluoride, and silicic acid. Silicic acid has an extremely low dissociation constant, meaning that the amount of soda ash (sodium carbonate) alkalinizer added to neutralize the fluoride ion is insufficient to neutralize the silicic acid. Silicic acid is long lasting and very good at dissolving lead.

LEAD IN SCHOOL FOUNTAINS. In 2004 Seattle papers reported lead at 1,600 ppb  in old Seattle schools, far above the 15 ppm EPA action level and the 0 ppm goal. New brass pipes and faucets contain around 8% lead and older pipes contain as much as 30% lead. Most old schools, homes, apartments, hospitals, office buildings, and factories have pipes containing lead, which SiF will leach. When water districts stop fluoridating, lead levels in water and in blooddrop, as happened in Tacoma in 1992. Seattle commissionedreports on the lead in schools, but had a blind spot to the possibility that SiF was a factor. Seattle began replacing pipes in schools at great cost, when terminating fluoridation should be the first step and the cheapest. Even if replacing lead pipes in schools will solve the lead problem in schools, it will not solve the lead problem in other structures.

MANY FLUORIDES. Some 92% of fluoridation is done with fluorosilicic acid or its salt, sodium silicofluoride, together referred to as silicofluoride (SiF). Around 8% is done with sodium fluoride (NaF). SiF and NaF are much more poisonous and soluble than naturally occurring calcium fluoride (CaF), which is relatively insoluble and not even classed as a poison. Fluoridationists say fluoride is naturally occurring and that they are merely “adjusting” naturally occurring fluoride levels. Instead they are adding highly soluble fluorides which do not contain calcium, which would buffer fluoride. NaF and SiF are industrial grade. SiF contains and breaks down intohydrogen fluoride—which is highly poisonous and penetrates stomach, placental, and brain barriers–plus silicic acid, which dissolves lead.

TOOTH DECAY. Fluoride is added allegedly to reduce caries. However, tooth decay has dropped just as much in non-fluoridated continental Europe as in fluoridated United States, so fluoridation cannot be the causal factor. Tooth decay correlates with poverty, bad diet, and lack of dental care, and not with the percentage of the population fluoridated.

BLACKS, HISPANICS, AND THE POOR in general are more sensitive to lead, arsenic, and fluoride than the general population due to poor nutrition and vitamin D deficiency. The poor cannot afford to buy bottled water or water distillers, the most reliable way to remove the tiny fluoride ion. Alveda King, Bernice King, and Andrew Young lead the Fluoride-Gatemovement. They see fluoridation as a civil rights issue because fluorosis and other harms are twice as bad among blacks and Hispanics.

FLUOROSIS. The CDC admits that 41% of children 12–15 years old have some degree of dental fluorosis. (If teeth are affected, so too are bones.) 8.6% suffer from mild fluorosis (white spots and some brown spots with up to 50% of enamel impacted), and 3.6% suffer from moderate and severe fluorosis (white spots and brown spots and sometimes pitting and chalky teeth and up to 100% of enamel impacted). Even mild dental fluorosis can be ugly. Fluorosis should not be forced on people just so tooth decay can allegedly be reduced and then only slightly, if at all.

SYSTEMIC VS. TOPICAL – TOOTHPASTE. Studies on the CDC website admit that the effect of fluoride on teeth is primarily topical and not systemic, but strangely, CDC still endorses drinking fluoride. Fluoride is ineffective systemically and topically. Tooth decay is caused by streptococcus mutans, which is easily killed by topical antibiotics. Using a Waterpic with Lugol iodine weekly kills them dead. Cut tooth decay by quitting sugar, sweetening with xylitol, supplementing vitamin D, eating more vegetables, and brushing and flossing. Fluoridated toothpaste is an unhealthy and ineffectual way to prevent decay. It should be available by prescription only. Never use it. Fluoridation is a magic bullet that misfires.

PERVASIVE. If we add fluoride to tap water, then fluoride is in everything made from tap water – food, cola, beer, coffee, bread, cereal, restaurant food, and fruit juices reconstituted with tap water.

GREED. The PR manipulators sell us fluoride the same way they sold us tetraethyl lead, DDT, cigarettes, and GMOs. Chemical, pharmaceutical, fertilizer, and toothpaste companies donate to legislators and to dental and medical colleges, which indoctrinate dentists and physicians to endorse fluoridation. We trust agencies and those with MD and DDS degrees. The ADA tells dentists that they need not try to understand the science behind fluoridation. They need only accept the mystery and spread the gospel of fluoridation. Dentists and researchers who question fluoridation have been fired and have had their careers ruined. Once started, a profitable scam is hard to stop.

CDC, EPA. The Oral Health Division, one small branch within the CDC, run by fluoridationist dentists, endorses fluoridation. Likewise, the non-scientist administrators at EPA endorse fluoridation. Endorsements prove nothing. The most significant non-endorsement is that of the EPA scientists’ union, which opposes fluoridation. Agencies have been taken over by the industries they regulate and are made up of pro-industry and pro-consumer parties, which explains their mixed signals and inaction. Neither CDC nor EPA has authority to approve, promote, or finance fluoridation. The Safe Drinking Water Act says “No … regulation may require the addition of any substance for preventive health care purposes unrelated to contamination of drinking water”. EPA and CDC dodge this law by only recommending fluoridation and letting water districts require it.

ARSENIC. SiF also contains up to 1.1 ppb arsenic, a confirmed Type 1, Class A human carcinogen. For arsenic the MCL, maximum contaminant level, is 10 ppb and the MCLG goal is zero. A zero MCLG for lead and arsenic means there is no level of lead or arsenic which is safe to add to drinking water. 

SiF AND NaF are mutagens, poisons, and probable carcinogens. As little as seven grams of SiF or NaF, the weight of seven paper clips, can kill an adult. It would take a half pound of naturally occurring CaF to do the same. The fluoride we drink is of course not immediately fatal. However, healthy adult kidneys only excrete half of the fluoride we consume, while bones and glands retain the other half. Once in bones, fluoride cannot be removed.

KIDNEYS AND BONES.Fluoride builds up in kidneys, reducing ability to excrete. Water used for dialysis must be fluoride free. After drinking fluoridated water for years, bone will contain 3,000 to 12,000 ppm fluoride, depending on water hardness and diet, levels at which bones weaken and become brittle. Fractured pelvises are twice as common in fluoridated areas. All fluorides affect bones, joints, and tendons and exacerbate arthritis.

ALZHEIMER’S. Water treatment plants add aluminum to precipitate dirt. Fluoride ion binds with aluminum, forming aluminum fluoride, a neutral molecule, which slips through the blood-brain barrier, delivering aluminum into the brain, which may be a factor in Alzheimer’s disease.

OTHER SYMPTOMS. Fluoride interrupts and inhibits enzymatic action. It denatures proteins. SiF is an anticholinesterase inhibitor. It damages brain tissue and reduces IQ while the fetus is still in the womb. It attacks the thyroid, pituitary, pineal, and other glands. Fluoride incorporates into atherosclerotic plaque in coronary arteries and aorta and worsens cardiovascular disease. Around 1% of the population is so hypersensitized to fluoridated water that they have to relocate.

FETUSES, BABIES, IQ REDUCTION.Fetuses are highly sensitive to fluoride and its co-contaminants because their cells are rapidly dividing. Fluoride and its co-contaminants pass the placental barrier and lower IQ. The FDA banned prenatal supplementscontaining fluoride. Babies too are highly sensitive. Their cells too are still dividing, and they drink four times as much fluids per their body weight as do adults. Babies’ kidneys are not mature and excrete only 20% of fluoride consumed. CDC, ADA, AMA, and the surgeon general have advised that if formula is prepared using fluoridated water dental fluorosis will result, an indication that other harms are being done.

ATHLETES, HARD LABORERS, DIABETICS, and those with kidney disease are vulnerable because they drink up to ten times as much water as typical people. Fluoride is a drug, but the dose cannot be controlled nor the duration of consumption. It should be taken by prescription only.

IN WESTERN WASHINGTON, we are especially susceptible to the slow but certain ravages of fluoride because our snow melt water is exceptionally soft and contains little calcium, which would bind with and tie up fluoride to some extent.

IRELAND.Studies comparing the fluoridated Irish Republic and non-fluoridated Northern Ireland show higher disease levels with fluoridation.

TOXIC WASTE FILTH. The fluorosilicic acid used is the unfiltered and unprocessed scrubber liquor from the smoke stacks of phosphate fertilizer plants in Florida, Mexico, and China. It contains or breaks down into fluoride ion, hydrogen fluoride, silicic acid. It contains lead and arsenic. Batches can contain mercury, cadmium, chromium, copper, thallium, selenium, and barium. There are billions of atoms of each contaminant per quart of water. Thallium is radioactive. Fluorosilicic acid contains trace amounts of many elements. It is not pharmaceutical grade. SiF and NaF have never been approved by the FDA, EPA, CDC, or any other federal or state agency for consumption in tap water. The FDA has approved pharmaceutical grade fluorides for topical use, as in toothpaste, but the fluoride is to be spat out. If more than the smallest amount is swallowed, one is to call poison control.

NATIONAL SANITATION FOUNDATION—SHAM.  NSF is a chemical company trade association, the only entity which certifies fluorosilicic acid to be safe. Washington and 46 other states allow fluoridation only with fluoride which complies with NSF 60. WAC 246-290-220(3), says: “any treatment chemicals … added to water intended for potable use must comply with ANSI/NSF Standard 60. The NSF web site and the NSF Standard for Drinking Water Additives, say: “Standard 60 … requires a toxicology review to determine that the product is safe at its maximum use level and … to determine if any contaminant concentrations have the potential to cause adverse human health effects. …” Some 20 toxicological studies are required, but NSF has admitted that toxicological studies are not being done. (See Hazen deposition, pages 22, 67). Thus fluoridation materials do not “comply” with NSF 60 and fluoridation with them is illegal.

DANGEROUS, EXPENSIVE. Cities buy SiF by the tanker truck load. Everett pours 250 gallons per day into drinking water, spending $300,000 per year. Fluorosilicic acid corrodes equipment and shortens its useful life. Hazmat suits must be worn to handle it. When the liquid is spilled on concrete, steel, or glass, it burns through. When fluoride is added to water, extra sodium hydroxide or sodium carbonate – Draino® or soda ash – must be added to reduce acidity.

NO INFORMED CONSENT. SiF and NaF are added to treat disease and so meet the FDA and Washington definitions of an unapproved drug. Fluoridation is medical treatment without informed consent. Forcing us all to take such a toxic waste drug violates our right to control our own bodies. It should not be our duty to remove the toxic waste. Water departments should stop adding it. Those who want to consume fluoride can swallow a little toothpaste or get a Luride prescription.

CAPTIVE WATER DISTRICTS buy fluoridated water from Seattle, Tacoma, and Everett, but they never voted on fluoridation. They should demand that their water just be water.

FISH. The fluoride content of sewer effluent is high enough to repel salmon and cause salmon runs to crash, as has happened in the Snohomish, Columbiaand Sacramento Rivers.

Sarin And Other Fluorinated Chemicals

March 21st, 2013 No comments

Dear Editor-in-Chief, Kathleen Cordeiro and Editor, Kathie Ragsdale, I’d like to bring the following information to your attention.

 

Scientific American

Better Killing through Chemistry

 

It all started when James M. Tour, a well-known organic chemist at Rice University and sometime Scientific American author, began to ring the alarm bells about chemical terrorism. While serving on a U.S. Defense Department panel to study the possibility, Tour concluded that nothing stood in the way of someone trying to acquire the ingredients of a chemical weapon. In an essay last year in Chemical & Engineering News he argued for restricting the purchase of key chemicals. “They¿re too easily available,” Tour told me. “There are no checks and balances………”

 

Instead Tour got a big box the next day by overnight mail. By following one of the well-known recipes for sarin¿mixing dimethyl methylphosphonate, phosphorus trichloride, “sodium fluoride” and alcohol in the right amounts and sequence¿he could have made 280 grams of the stuff or a comparable amount of soman or GF. (That¿s more than 100 teaspoonfuls.) All this for $130.20 plus shipping and handling……..

Now please take notof the information in Section 11 – Toxicological Information which you’ll find on page 5 in the next link.

 

This is a Material Safety Data Sheet for Fluorosilicic Acid/”sillyacid” and you still say that water fluoridation is safe and effective, especially when there have never ever been any safety studies done throughout the world.

Now I’m sure that this information will get you interested in what you are promoting as “Safe and Effective.”

 

 

Nerve Agent Precursor: Sodium Fluoride

 

COMMENTS

Sodium fluoride is used in the manufacture of G-type nerve agents in the same way as hydrogen fluoride. It is usually prepared by the reaction of sodium hydroxide or sodium carbonate with hydrofluoric acid. Hydrofluoric is made on a large scale or can be made and sodium hydroxide and carbonate are also made on a large scale. For example, in 2002, European manufacture of sodium carbonate in 2002 was approximately 1.5 million tonnes and 5.6 million tonnes of sodium hydroxide was also manuafctured that year.

G-type nerve agents

 

CBRNE – Nerve Agents, G-series – Tabun, Sarin, Soman

 

Background

The organophosphate nerve agents tabun (GA), sarin (GB), soman (GD), and cyclosarin (GF) are among the most toxic chemical warfare agents known.[1] Together they comprise the G-series nerve agents, thus named because German scientists first synthesized them, beginning with GA in 1936. GB was discovered next in 1938, followed by GD in 1944 and finally the more obscure GF in 1949. The only other known nerve agent, O-ethyl S-(2-diisopropylaminoethyl) methylphosphonothioate (VX), is discussed in a separate article of this journal (see CBRNE – Nerve Agents, V-series – Ve, Vg, Vm, Vx)………..

In 1994, the Japanese terrorist cult, Aum Shinrikyo, synthesized and then deployed GB against civilians at Matsumoto, Japan, killing 8 people.[6] The following year, the same terrorist group released GB again in the infamous Tokyo Subway sarin attack, killing 13 and sending 5500 persons to local hospitals.[7]

Ectoparasiticide use in contemporary Australian livestock production

 

Sodium fluoride and sodium fluorosilicate had application against lice (Roberts 1952), with sodium fluorosilicate in combination with phenothiazine and flour applied as a dust (Seddon 1967a). Magnesium fluorosilicate in combination with rotenone and sulphur is still used today to treat sheep lice, itch mites and ked infestations.

Safe and Effective” I don’t think so, but it all sounds very nice and very comforting doesn’t it.

 

It is an excellent marketing “American apple pie slogan,” but I’m so sorry to say, that these are just 3 words which have absolutely no science behind them.

 

But they do have a lot of “GREENBACKS” behind them, don’t they!

LEAD BULLETS, LEAD AVGAS, LEAD PAINT, LEAD PIPES, LEAD WATER

It is odd that in the 21st century we are still contaminating water, air, and hunted food animals with bullets made out of lead. (See “Gun range under fire over lead exposure”, 2-14-2013.) There are good alternatives. Shooters should follow the Army’s lead and switch to lead-free “green bullets”.

 

In 1977 we mostly banned lead paint (which is sweet to a toddler’s taste), and most of it has been painted over and sealed in. So we hope that it is not as great a problem as it was in the 1970s. I say we mostly banned lead in paint because it is still used in some states in road paint, and lead free paint can still be up to 9 ppb lead.

 

There is a forgotten side to the lead story. From the 1920s into the 1970s our air was poisoned by tetraethyl added to gasoline. In the 1970s TEL was phased out. It turned out that all along ethanol had been just as good as preventing knocking. Promoters of TEL had known this and lied to sell their product.

 

When leaded gasoline was banned, a loophole was carved out for aviation gas, commonly known as Avgas. Many propeller driven planes still burn avgas, and they spew lead down on us as they fly overhead. Most piston driven planes can be made to run just as well on other gasoline mixtures, and those which cannot should get new engines.

 

The most ignored and possibly the most significant source of lead is our tap water. Simplot, the company which supplies the particular type of dental additives which Seattle injects into our water, admits that it contains lead, and NSF, the quasi-agency which regulates water additives admits it contains up to 1.1 ppb lead, which using Avagadro’s math equals around 6.4 trillion atoms of lead per quart of water.

 

It gets worse, much worse, because the dental additives are effective lead solvents, and there is a lot of lead in Seattle plumbing. There is lead in old service lines (street to house), in brass-lead pipes, in galvanized pipe (which absorbs lead from lead service lines), in the solder used on copper and brass pipe, and in virtually all water faucets (Washington considers 8% lead to be “lead free”).

 

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported in 2004 that lead had been found in Seattle schools at up to 1,600 ppb. This is an astonishing level. The EPA action level is 15 ppb, and the EPA goal is zero. 1,600 ppb equals 1.6 ppm, which is twice the current .8 ppm level of the dental additives themselves.

 

The chemistry is basic. Dental additives leach lead. Once in the body, lead is hard to excrete. “Lead as metal ion irreversibly binds sulfhydryl groups on proteins, including both structural and enzymatic proteins”, says Dr. Sauerheber. When Tacoma stopped adding dental additives in 1992, lead levels dropped dramatically. Lead damages the brains of fetuses and babies most of all because their cells are still dividing.

 

It is politically incorrect to oppose injecting dental additives to drinking water. Politicians avoid the issue out of fear of the well-funded, well-organized, but scientifically uninformed pro-additives dental lobby.

 

Nevertheless, it is an indisputable fact that the dental additives used right now in Seattle contain not only lead but also arsenic, mercury, cadmium, barium, and thallium (which is slightly radioactive).

 

If we are really serious about lowering blood lead levels, we need to focus on all sources of lead. Lead bullets, lead plumbing, lead paint, lead avgas, and lead dissolving drinking water dental additives should all be outlawed. There are better ways to shoot guns, fly airplanes, and plumb a house.  And there are better ways to protect teeth, such as diet and dental cleaning education, basic dental and cleaning services, supplementing vitamin D, and not eating sugar.

To the Spokane Regional Health District:

 

I am the president of Fluoride Class Action, an association of attorneys and scientists who educate governments regarding fluoridation issues.

 

There is a proposal on the table to fluoridate Spokane water. The fluorosilicic acid which would be used contains lead, arsenic, mercury, cadmium, thallium, and radionuclides. Even worse is the fact that it leaches large amounts of lead from pipes. There is hard evidence of fetal and infant IQ reduction in fluoridated cities.

 

See the broadsheet attached for detailed information regarding lead levels as related to fluoridation. Follow the links online at http://www.fluoride-class-action.com/inauguration. Please give a copy to your attorney. Have him call me.

 

Fluoridation is a way phosphate fertilizer companies can offload fluorosilicic acid waste, which they cannot otherwise sell or disposed of economically. Fluoridation was backed by the Kettering Institute, the same Alcoa affiliated propaganda group which backed tetraethyl lead, a scam by which we were poisoned for over 50 years.

 

If people want to swallow fluoride, they can swallow a little toothpaste, which is at least pharmaceutical grade. There is a lot of money behind fluoridation and therefore a lot of pressure and manipulation in favor of it. A small group of dentists have been seduced into joining this heretical quack cult. They have not studied the science behind the issue and do not realize that they are being duped.

 

Do not be deceived by this big money scam. Warning: Fluoridation-Lead litigation is coming to Snohomish, King, and Pierce counties. Do not join the defendants list.
