Can you then please tell us where fluorosilicic acid comes from?
And there is a huge difference between "naturally occurring" and fluorosilicic acid.

Nonsense. There's plenty of evidence that fluoride is harmful.
The very fact that the CDC DROPPED the dosing level to .7 milligrams is an obvious red flag.
Fluoride causes fluorsis, thyroid issues, and has caused cancer in rat cancer models. It is also recommended that infants not be exposed to fluoride at all!!
And going beyond that, doesn't the fact that this stuff is an industrial waste product bother you at all? Phoenix is putting a non-pharma grade acid into our drinking water which brings up another issue: WHY IS GOVERNMENT INVOLUNTARILY MEDICATING US?
What was once thought to be OK, through experience, may do more harm than good. Just because we've been doing it since the 50's doesn't mean it shouldn't be questioned.11 months ago
So when is the government responsible for involuntarily prescribing medication?
Are you aware of where the fluoride that is used in our water comes from?
Are you aware that the acid used to fluoridate our water is an industrial waste product?
Have you ever questioned where the "studies" came up with $38 in savings? I have insurance so how am I saving anything? I also use toothpaste and rinse that has fluoride in it.
Did you know that the ADA says topical fluoride treatment is most effective? Why is it that we fluoridate our teeth systemically? Why does my thyroid, liver, and kidneys need to be fluoridated as well?
Did you know that infants less than six months old should NOT be exposed to fluoride at all?
Why was the level of fluoridation cut down to .7 milligrams? Was it because of the adverse effects such as fluorsis were presenting themselves at higher rates?
The government has no business medically treating its population involuntarily. The money that's allegedly saved is irrelevant and has no business in the decision process of the government when it comes to an individuals medical choices.
Here's a great link to how industrial fluoride is made:
And here's a great site on why we need to stop fluoridating now:
