Dallas, Texas Considers Ending Over 50 Years of Water Fluoridation

Anti water fluoridation advocates are closer to success in the removal of fluoride from the water supply in Dallas, Texas. The ban would come after five decades of water fluoridation, but more and more people around the world have been gathering to put a stop to the practice over the last few years.

“We don’t need it and we’d just save a million dollars that we can use for something else. We’re looking into seeing what we can do immediately so we can get those funds up from now.” – Sheffie Kadane, Dallas City Council Member

Yeah, this is major big. I knew we would prevail. It only makes sense. We’re spending too much money on an ineffective program.” -  Scott Griggs, Dallas City Council Member

Activists have continually showed up to city council meetings, providing evidence and warning them regarding the risks involved with water fluoridation. As a result, the city could save over $1 million a year that is spent on the industrial chemical, that’s right, an industrial chemical.

The substance added to our drinking water is called hydrofluorosilicic acid. It is a toxic waste substance created from the creation processes of aluminum, fertilizer, steel and nuclear industries. It’s not the natural element of fluoride, again, it’s industrial toxic waste.

For example, in the Phosphate Mining & Production Industry, much of the hydrofluorosilicic acid occurs from strip-mined rock. The rock is broken up, placed in giant vats where sulfuric acid is also added to get rid of whatever phosphate (and other contaminants) are in the rock. While the phosphate is extracted, the contaminants used to be released into the atmosphere. This was creating more pollution, and killing animal and plant life. (See video below)

dallasss-1050x700Environmental regulations were put in place where pollution control devices were set up in order to capture the contaminants, like arsenic, lead, mercury, silicofluoride and more. Included in the pollution control device is hydrofluorosilicic acid, so toxic that one needs to wear a full body suit and mask to be around it. These contaminants are then taken out of the chimneys (scrubbed off with the acid) and stored in “open-air cooling lakes,” which are further exposed to airborne contaminants.

Industrial practices produce millions and millions of gallons of this liquid hazardous waste. Because it costs these corporations thousands and thousands of dollars per ton to neutralize and dispose of hydrofluorosilicic acid, they instead sell it to the population as a ‘product.’ How ridiculous is that? Hydrofluorosilicic acid is shipped to your local drinking water supplier.

“In point of fact, fluoride causes more human cancer deaths than any other chemical. When you have power you don’t have to tell the truth. That’s a rule that’s been working in this world for generations. There are a great many people who don’t tell the truth when they are in power in administrative positions. Fluoride amounts to public murder on a grand scale. It is some of the most conclusive scientific and biological evidence that I have come across in my 50 years in the field of cancer research.” – Dr. Dean Burke, Biochemist, Former Chief Chemist at the National Cancer Institute of Health (source)

 “In regard to the use of fluorosilicic acid as a source of fluoride for fluoridation, this agency regards such use as an ideal environmental solution to a long-standing problem. By recovering byproduct fluorosilicic acid from fertilizer manufacturing, water and air pollution are minimized” – Rebecca Hanmer – Former Deputy Assistant Administrator For Water, US Environmental Protection Agency (source #1) (source #2)

“If this stuff gets out into the air, it’s a pollutant; if it gets into the river, it’s a pollutant; if it gets into the lake, it’s a pollutant; but if it goes right straight into your drinking water system, it’s not a pollutant. That’s amazing.” – Dr. J. William Hirzy (2000) Senior Chemist at the US EPA Headquarters (source)

    Harvard Study Confirms Fluoride Reduces Children’s IQ.

  2. Don't drink it.

    In UK we were told that we were having the levels increased and anyone who argues is a nut. Its real expensive buying bottled water to avoid the nasty tasting contaminated tap water.

  3. Tyler

    Fluoridation isn’t a miracle, but it is safe and beneficial. Check out a another information source, it’s easy to ‘report’ whatever you want, but checking out multiple sources is better.

    They figured out a way to save money, not to protect Dallas from fluoride. Either way, both sides win.

  5. Robert

    Wow, what good new. Watch the IQs in Dallas start to rise now that fluoride is removed.

    • lois.1956

      I guess the dentists in Dallas will soon be making lots more money.
      Decades of unbiased research have shown Fluoridation to be prevent lots of oral health misery.
      With Texas now rejecting Obamacares Medicaid expansion AND Dallas abandoning Fluoridation,
      Dallas will not be a healthy pace to live!

      • Michael McCoy

        So-called “unbiased research” is difficult if not impossible to find — and the bigger the issue, (dollars at stake), the more slanted and even insidious the “results”.
        Large companies commission countless “studies” to promote what they’re manufacturing/selling, and even with all the pressure to make the results favorable, many of these analysis still can’t be made to reflect the desired result — so they’re scrapped and secreted away.
        Almost all people, including research scientists, operate in an arena of influences, some acknowledged, some not — and hidden and/or disguised agendas abound.
        Personal beliefs and motivations cannot be underestimated.
        I have yet to find a genuine, unbiased study on the effects of fluoride on human health and dental/oral matters — such as a carefully conducted, double-blind analysis over an appropriately sizable segment of a population for a meaningful duration.

        • Adam M

          Well said Michael. This is exactly the problem across all areas where public health concerns can potentially block profits for large corporations. People get so obsessed with arguing about the data and never stop to ask if it’s a level playing field to begin with.
          In many cases the deck is heavily stacked in favour of the companies and they have done such a good job of marketing their position as the only “scientific” one that anybody who speaks out against them is straightaway labelled a quick. There are so many examples in history of corporate and political corruption hiding the truth in areas of health that I find it amazing that people are so quick to trust them.
          Corporations have so much money to throw at these problems, silence researchers that go against them and lobby politicians, the truth stands little chance of making it to the wider audience until decades later when it’s too late.
