Did you know that most of the fluoride added to your water comes from China? And it is laced with heavy metals!
A recent investigative report from Natural News confirms that fear, proving that America’s fluoride additives are all imported from China, and they’re contaminated with heavy metals.
‘The sodium fluoride added to US water supplies is contaminated with the toxic elements lead, tungsten and aluminum,’ the announcement from Natural News two weeks ago began, ‘Strontium and uranium were also found in substantial quantities in some samples, raising additional questions about the purity of industrial fluoride used for water fluoridation.’
After testing the samples of sodium fluoride obtained from all six Chinese suppliers used by American municipalities, the Natural News lab obtained the following results. They broke out the highest levels found of each toxic metal, and then listed the average contamination levels for all the tested samples. From Natural News:
Highest levels found (in parts per billion)
-aluminum: 283,218 ppb
-arsenic: 137 ppb
-strontium: 9,417 ppb
-lead: 988 ppb
-uranium: 1,415 ppb
-tungsten: presence confirmed in 2 of 6 samples but quantitative analysis not conducted on tungsten
Average levels found (in parts per billion)
-aluminum: 69,364 ppb
-arsenic: 70 ppb
-strontium: 1,751 ppb
-lead: 299 ppb
-uranium: 239 ppb
Fluoridated water has become big business so in order to make even more money, companies try to find cheaper sources of fluoride, “Much of the fluoride added to municipal water supplies across the United States is imported from China, and is contaminated with heavy metals”, according to a warning by Bernard Miltenberger, president of the Pure Water Committee of Western Maryland.
Miltenberger contacted another Maryland filtration plant and found that the fluoride they use also comes from China and contains toxic heavy metals as well. “The material safety data sheets from Solvay fluorides show that a teaspoon amount of five grams of sodium fluoride can be fatal to an average size man of 70kg. … chronic toxicity by oral route may cause skeletal and dental fluorosis, thyroid, testes, kidney, liver, ambiguous carcinogenic and mutagenic effects, fetotoxic and fertility effects.”
You should never believe what the government says about fluoride. There is NO evidence proving that Fluoride is safe and it helps to prevent tooth decay. In fact, dental fluorosis is recognized by scientists as one of the outcomes of fluoride poisoning.
Fluoride is a derivative of Fluorine which is a toxic by-product of Aluminum mining. With the whooping 60% mark, America is on top of the list in Fluoride consumption. In comparison, 97% of western Europe has rejected fluoridated water because of the proven health risks.
Have you ever noticed that fluoride toothpaste has a warning that anyone who consumes more than a pea-size amount should contact a poison control center at once? Really? And this is something that we use daily!
