Where does “fluoride” come from?

Our grocery stores are riddled with rows of toothpastes containing sodium fluoride and bottled beverages containing hydrofluorosilicic or hexafluorosilicic acid (the same type of fluoride found in certain cleaning products and our tap water).  Many agricultural food products are highly contaminated with “fluoride” residue from conventional insecticides and pesticides. Fluoride’s use as an insecticide extends beyond the farm into the home and is often found in roach and other insect killers. But where does this chemical, that we ingest every single day and that we are told is good for our teeth, really come from?

In Toronto, the contract to purchase over $3,000,000 worth of “fluoride” in 2012 went to a chemical company called Min-Chem Canada Inc.. They sell the chemical Hydrofluosilicic Acid to the City of Toronto and that is the chemical that we know as fluoride.

Toronto Water then adds this chemical to our water supply, after the water has already finished the water purification process.

From the fluoride Material Safety Data Sheet: “Heat is generated when fluoride is added to water.”

So what does $3,000,000 of your Toronto tax money buy you on an annual basis? At $735 per 1,000 KG, that equates to 4,081,633 KG, or almost 9,000,000 LBs of fluoride, a chemical substance that the EPA has admitted contains about 100 times more arsenic than its filtered counterpart sodium fluoride.

Don’t believe it? See the answered Toronto Freedom of Information Act request for yourself:

Blowing Smoke

The City of Toronto is purchasing hydrofluosilicic acid from chemical companies, but where do the chemical companies get this chemical? Disturbingly, smokestacks are the origin of the chemical we know as fluoride. A by-product of phosphate and aluminum production, fluoride used to get blown through smokestacks with detrimental effects on surrounding plants and animals. So much so that the government forced these producers to begin “scrubbing” their smokestacks to rid them of fluoride being spewed into the air which, through gravity, landed back onto the ground.

You can see some of the largest fluoride pits in America here:


Notice all those weird looking square lakes? Those are not lakes at all… They are fluoride pits containing millions of pounds of accumulated smokestack scrub waste.

Trucks pull up, suck up the unfiltered “fluoride”, and deliver it directly to your water supply.

  1. It’s so unbelievable people can’t believe our Health Departments actually promote something so toxic. But, the TRUTH is hard to swallow. And even more unbelievable, these chemicals have never been tested for human consumption. Politics are very powerful and most people are brainwashed through propaganda that they have grown up with. However, the truth is starting to penetrate through some of this brainwashing, thanks to so many honest health professionals and groups opposed to this practice.

    • Hi Eric,
      Thank you for your question. Full implementation of water fluoridation occurred in Toronto in 1963. Here is the link and quote from wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fluoridation_by_country ” In 1955, Toronto approved water fluoridation, but delayed implementation of the program until 1963 due to a campaign against fluoridation by broadcaster Gordon Sinclair.[77]
      Pretty sad that this has been happening for over 50 years. More than $100,000,000 could have been saved and put towards healthcare, education, and other much more important programs in Toronto.
      Hope to see you on June 6th.

  2. It seems like the receipt is for 1 million dollars and not 3. Am I missing something? Where does the 3 million figure come from?

    • Hi Damien,

      Please look at page 2 ($1,003,850.00) and page 5 ($2,062,210.00). This does not include related administration or additional chemicals used for neutralization.
