Environment

The Hydrofluosilicic acid (HFS) dosed to Wilmington, NC area citizens is an extremely toxic and volatile industrial by-product. It would cost millions of dollars for industry to get rid of these noxious compounds. Instead, they charge us money (about $20,000 per year before labor and equipment) to slow release their pollutants down our throats and toilets. It’s enough to make you angry…so let’s do something about it?

Contact the Cape Fear Public Utility Authority and ask them why we are adding compounds this toxic to our drinking water supply?

"Occupational exposure to fluoride has a harmful effect on the higher functions of the central nervous system, negatively influencing both cognitive and autonomic functioning. There is a definite relationship between the damage caused by fluoride and the level of exposure." - Guo Z, et al. (2001). Study on neurobehavioral function of workers occupationally exposed to fluoride. Industrial Health and Occupational Disease 27:346-348.

"Sublethal concentrations may have adverse effects on fish behavior or reproduction, which could be ecologically significant. Research findings are few and not confirmed, but trout eggs seem to be delayed in development and hatching by 1.5 ppm fluoride."
