More important, peer reviewed data over the last decade reveal that these effects are substantially exacerbated by the practice of adding hydroflurosilicic acid or sodium silicofluoride to our public water supplies delivered to 160 million Americans.
The chemicals--fluorosilicic acid, sodium silicofluoride, and sodium fluoride--used to fluoridate drinking water are industrial waste products from the phosphate fertilizer (and aluminum) industry.
