The California Code of Reglations, title 22  lists 791 chemicals as "Hazardous Waste." 39 of these are fluoride compounds. Two are used for drinking water fluridation in Sacramento CA.
#384 Hydrofluosilicic Acid (X,C) and
#674 Sodium Fluoride (X)

 fluoride poison rating

Fluorides are slightly more toxic than lead, and slightly less toxic than arsenic.

20 Questions for Sacramento Leaders
Making policies that affect the health of entire communities of people is a huge responsibility. F.F.S. is posing 20 common sense questions about water fluoridation to our elected and health officials in Sacramento. These questions need to be answered by our leaders to demonstrate they have knowledge and awareness of the subject. Relying on a dentist’s opinion or getting talking points from someone assosiated with the big polluters is not adequate.

  1. What is the difference between the inorganic sodium fluoride (fluorosilicic acid) we add to our water and natural calcium fluoride that occurs in the earth’s crust and water?
  2. How toxic is the compound sodium fluoride (fluorosilicic acid) in it’s concentrated form and where does it come from?
  3. Who is prescribing sodium fluoride (fluorosilicic acid) to our population and do these persons have any medical or pharmacy training?
  4. What authority do they have to do this and by whom was the authority given to them?
  5. Is there any known human condition of being fluoride deficient?
  6. Has the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ever approved any fluoride product designed for ingestion as safe or effective?
  7. Are people’s human rights or constitutional rights being violated if they don’t want to participate in drinking sodium fluoride (fluorosilicic acid)?
  8. If a segment of the population (infants) does not want to ingest sodium fluoride (fluorosilicic acid) and can not afford the money to buy bottled non-fluoridated water is the city willing to do anything for them?
  9. Can I be guaranteed in writing that my family (young children) will suffer no negative health effects from fluoridated water (including fluorosis) and if so who would be responsible for damages if it was determined that people have suffered adverse health effects?
  10. What is the ecological impact of dumping 3.5 million+ pounds per year of a highly toxic non-biodegradable environmental pollutant (fluorosilicic acid) into our state’s waterways?
  11. Since much of the United State’s processed food supply; juices, sodas, fruits, teas, and vegetables has sodium fluoride (fluorosilicic acid) in it or on it, do we still need to add more to our water?
  12. How can a person tell how much sodium fluoride (fluorosilic acid) he’s taking in on a daily basis through food and water, and what would be an unacceptably high level?
  13. Will I receive a cumulative negative effect on my health if I consume sodium fluoride (fluorosilicic acid) for several years?
  14. Since most of the civilized world has rejected or stopped water fluoridation, why does the United States insist on continuing, and why does it aggressively advocate and market the practice?
  15. Should our nation be concerned about a correlation between the growing number of diseases and health afflictions (diabetes, kidney disease, thyroid problems, autism, Alzheimer’s, ADD) and industrial pollutants such as fluoride?
  16. Is fluorosilicic acid absorbed into the skin when bathing or showering?
  17. When one of the biggest fluoride institutional advocates (The CDC) concurs that most of the benefits of fluoride occurs at the topical level, should we reconsider ingesting it as a way to prevent cavities?
  18. Is it wise to rely on advice from an association of dentists to put a toxic byproduct into our water supply?
  19. Since the #1 rule of medicine is first do no harm, should we not be consulting with doctors of toxicology as to the safety of this practice?
  20. Is it possible that the portion of the dental/scientific community that advocates water fluoridation would not want to reverse itself due to embarrassment, vanity, potential law suits, or loss of government/corporate research funding? And is it also possible that there is pressure from Big Industry to maintain thousands of widely dispersed paying outlets for it’s waste disposal when a policy reversal would dramatically effect it’s bottom line?
  21. Has your council person answered any of these to your satisfaction? - Find out here.
