Think Adding Fluoride is Bad? Wait Until You Find Out What Else is in that Fluoride

As if adding harmful sodium fluoride to municipal water supplies wasn’t bad enough, many tested samples of fluoride contained toxic heavy metals such as aluminum, lead, and tungsten. A well-known online lab has revealed that uranium and strontium were also found in large quantities in some samples. This can’t help but raise additional questions about the purity of the industrial fluoride that is being used to fluoridate water supplies. Read also if fluoride in water is causing brain drain.

The online source that conducted the testing obtained samples of the supposedly “pure” sodium fluoride from six chemical manufacturers in China who export fluoride for use in American water supplies and other types of industrial applications, such as pesticides.

Approximately 500 grams of this white powder was obtained from each one of the six Chinese companies, and from those original samples, about 0.5 grams from each sample was weighed in vials, then, using “trace grade”, extremely pure, acids suitable for ICP-MS analysis, these samples were then consumed.

After the samples were consumed, they were then normalized using laboratory grade water and then dilution factors were set in the control software.

Strict quality control was used and the results were astonishing. The heavy metals that were found included the following:

  • Uranium
  • Aluminum
  • Arsenic
  • Lead
  • Strontium
  • Tungsten

This lab has produced undeniably scientific proof that the fluoride used in US water supplies is contaminated with heavy metals, toxic elements, and other dangerous elements which have radioactive properties.

US cities that are foolishly engaging in the fluoridation of their water supplies almost never test the raw materials they receive for contamination. Why should they, as there are no laws against dumping toxic materials, even things such as damaging heavy metals, as long as they are labeled as a non-toxic substance. Although the EPA does demand that public water test their water for heavy metal concentrations, the truth is that samples acquired for testing purposes are often taken upstream from where the fluoride is dumped. This means that the contaminants from the fluoride are never actually tested.

This lab tests confirms that the contamination of fluoride by heavy metals can vary considerably from one fluoride source to another. For example, while 988 parts per billion of lead was found in one source, another source showed as little as 53 ppb. However, that low-lead source contained more than 1,400 ppb of uranium. That is a very disconcerting figure when you consider the amount of radioactive uranium that is still found on this plant thanks to atomic weapons testing.


Also, the industrial heavy metal tungsten, which exists in imported rice protein products, was also found in two of the six samples tested. At high concentrations, tungsten has been linked to higher levels of stroke risk. This sample means, however, that some people in America are drinking water from muni water that contains tungsten.

Fluoride advocates, however, have always used not so honest language when trying to deceive the public about fluoride. One advertisement floating around a pro-fluoride city stated that fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral in water and that the additional fluoride simply restored the natural level of fluoride to water in order to protect the health of the public. This is an outright lie. Simply because something occurs naturally in nature does not necessarily make it healthy. Arsenic and cyanide are also naturally occurring elements in nature but no one would dare say either of those things was “healthy”. If proponents want to restore public water supplies, then we should also be dumping arsenic into municipal water supplies.

Also, sodium fluoride imported from China can hardly be compared to the same natural mineral that is found in groundwater. There are numerous chemical compounds which have fluorine elements in various configurations, some of which is more toxic than others, and all of them are labeled fluoride for the intention of municipal water fluoridation. Of course this dishonest labeling is intentional.
