Chinese Fluoride In Mass. Water Raises Concern
http://www.thebostonchannel.com/news/22814488/detail.html

AMESBURY, Mass. -- Fluoride is added to the water most of us drink because the government believes it's a safe and inexpensive way to prevent tooth decay.
However, Team 5 Investigates found the Amesbury Water Department pulled fluoride from its system amid concerns about its supply from China.
Department of Public Works Director Rob Desmarais said after he mixes the white powder with water, 40 percent of it will not dissolve.

"I don't know what it is," Desmarais said. "It's not soluble, and it doesn't appear to be sodium fluoride. So we are not quite sure what it is."
Desmarais said the residue clogs his machines and makes it difficult to get a consistent level of fluoride in the town's water.

Since April the fluoride pumps in Amesbury have been turned off and they will stay that way until Desmarais can find out what's in the fluoride that's imported from China.
Both state and federal health officials told Team 5 Investigates that Chinese fluoride is safe.
The Department of Public Health said it believes that more than 650,000 customers in 44 Massachusetts communities are getting the flouride in question and only Amesbury has temporarily stopped using it.

However, they were unable to say with certainty which of the other 43 communities are actually using the sodium fluoride from China in its water.
The New York company that supplies the fluoride said it is certified by the National Sanitation Foundation which assures the quality of the product.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has received 1,000 complaints, but also says it's safe. Testing continues to determine the precise composition of the residue.

"They should test it to make sure...it is safe for us to drink," said Paul Stewart who lives in Newburyport. He said he has a right to know exactly what's in his water.
"On the same day that I read the story about fluoride coming from China, I also read about stories about melamine that was being contaminated in milk products coming from China," Stewart said. "And then we had another story about more lead in kids toys from China."

Since 2007, most of the sodium fluoride has been imported from China because it's the least expensive on the market.
"I don't think that when it comes to something that I ingest every day that the lowest bidder is good enough," Stewart said.

Chromium plume spreads in California town
Nov 2010
– A town near Hinkley, about 120 miles northeast of Los Angeles has seen a dramatic increase in the size of a toxic plume of chromium as it has spread to multiple groundwater wells.  Water regulators discovered a well with increasing concentrations of the cancer-causing pollutant and now even more wells have been uncovered with elevated levels.  Many sick residents blamed the contaminated water for their crippling health problems that included Hodgkin's disease and breast cancer.

New York florida water
Dec. 2010
-  Four decades after New York started adding fluoride to its water, a city councilman armed with new research is launching a campaign to stop the practice.

"This amounts to forced medication by the government," said Councilman Peter Vallone (D-Queens), who plans to introduce fluoride-removal legislation at the next Council meeting. "What's next? They decide we're depressed and add Prozac to our drinking water?"

The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention hails the addition of fluoride to drinking water as one of the 10 greatest public health achievements of the 20th century - helping to drastically reduce tooth decay, especially in people with limited access to a dentist.

The CDC touts research showing fluoride is safe at the low levels added to city water systems.

A full 72% of Americans drink water fortified with the natural mineral.

"The bottom line is that we don't have any concern [about fluoride's safety]," said Linda Orgain, a CDC specialist.

But critics are troubled by new studies that suggest consuming too much fluoride can weaken teeth and bones. A recent study in China even suggested that exposure to high levels of fluoride can diminish children's intelligence.

Such studies prompted a panel of scientists convened by the National Academy of Sciences to recommend in 2006 that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency lower the amount of fluoride allowed in drinking water from the currently permitted level of 4 milligrams per liter.

New York's water has about 1 milligram per liter - a level most scientists consider safe.

"There is broad scientific consensus that the addition of fluoride to drinking water at optimal levels has significant oral health benefits and has no adverse health impacts," a Health Department spokeswoman said.

The city spends roughly $7 million a year adding fluoride to its water, but the Health Department believes taxpayers save millions more with improved dental health.

Safety isn't the only factor the city should consider, said John Doull, the University of Kansas emeritus professor of toxicology who was chairman of the National Academy of Sciences panel.

More people have access to fluoride from toothpaste and other sources today than they did in 1965, when the city started adding the mineral to our water, he said.

"It's been a long time since we've looked with scientific accuracy at whether this is still a public health benefit," Doull said. "There's no great evidence that it's producing harm [at low levels], but the question is: Does it really improve public health?"

Fluoride in Water Linked to Lower IQ in Children
Dec. 21, 2010
– Exposure to fluoride may lower children's intelligence.
Fluoride is added to 70% of U.S. public drinking water supplies.

US Government Finally Admitting That Fluoride Is Bad For Hum
January, 2011
U.S. EPA today proposed to start gradually banning a pesticide often used on cocoa beans and dried fruits that degrades to fluoride, a move closely linked to the Obama administration's decision last week to curb the maximum levels of fluoride in drinking water out of concern for children's health.

EPA's bid to wind down legal use of sulfuryl fluoride, citing the health risk to children posed by aggregate fluoride exposure, marks a long-awaited victory by the three public-health groups that first asked the agency to rein in the pesticide more than five years ago.

One of the three advocacy organizations, the Environmental Working Group (EWG), said the sulfuryl fluoride phaseout appears to be EPA's first official granting of any pesticide restriction petition filed by green advocates.

Lithium to be Added to our Drinking Water
June, 2011
-   Lithium is prescribed for Bi polar disorder, Depression, as a mood stabiliser and Migraines.  Lithium and fluoride alter the brain’s normal production of serotonin and norepinephrine, which in turn artificially alters the way an individual thinks and how he or she feels about a given situation. Lithium is literally a mind-altering, antidepressant chemical substance that those promoting it openly admit modifies brain function.

Nitrate contamination of drinking water
March, 2012
— Nitrate contamination of drinking water is a pervasive problem in California's agricultural heartland.  Chemical fertilizers and livestock manure are the main source of nitrate contamination in groundwater for more than 1 million Californians in the Salinas Valley and parts of the Central Valley.

Bottled Water has 24,000 Chemicals, Including Endocrine Disruptors
Sept. 2013
-  Chemicals leech from plastic products into water, food and beverages, including an endocrine-disrupting chemical (EDC) known as di(2-ethylhexyl) fumarate, or DEHF, that is completely unregulated.

Most bottled water products tested exhibited significant anti-estrogenic activity, while 16 of the 18 samples were found to inhibit the body’s androgen receptors by an astounding 90 percent. Additionally, the other 24,520 chemical traces besides DEHF were also identified as exhibiting antagonistic activity, which means that they, too, are detrimental to the body’s hormonal system.

Migraines link to chemical in plastic cups and bottles
Dec. 2013
- New study suggests Bisphenol A (BPA) may cause debilitating headaches.  Migraines afflict one in seven adults in the UK.   Researchers urge sufferers to cut their potential exposure to BPA by not using plastic microwave trays, bottles and office water coolers.
BPA has already been linked to obesity, infertility and heart attacks.

Drinking water from plastic cups or bottles could be giving millions of Britons headaches.  New research shows that a controversial ‘gender-bending’ chemical in synthetic packaging may trigger migraines.
Bisphenol A (BPA) has already been linked to a range of heath problems including obesity, infertility and heart attacks.  Now the latest study – published in the journal Toxicological Sciences – points to BPA causing the debilitating headaches which afflict one in seven UK adults.

Toxic chemicals in drinking water for six million Americans
August 9, 2016
-  Drinking water supplies contain unsafe levels of industrial chemicals that have been linked to cancer and other serious health problems.  The chemicals – known as PFASs (for polyfluoroalkyl and perfluoroalkyl substances) – are used in products ranging from food wrappers to clothing to nonstick cookware to fire-fighting foams. They have been linked with an increased risk of kidney and testicular cancers, hormone disruption, high cholesterol, and obesity.

Drinking water from 13 states accounted for 75 percent of the unsafe supply, led by California, New Jersey, North Carolina, Alabama, Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York, Georgia, Minnesota, Arizona, Massachusetts, and Illinois. SOURCE
