Industrial Fluoride Additive in Tap Water Impacts Your Health and Pocketbook
Industrial-grade fluoride chemicals added to U.S. public water supplies contain arsenic that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) classifies as a human carcinogen. Switching to low-arsenic pharmaceutical-grade fluoride will save society $1 billion to $14 billion annually, according to research published in Environmental Science & Policy, led by former EPA senior scientists who are experts in chemical risk assessment, reports the Fluoride Action Network (FAN).

“This study provides additional scientific evidence that fluoridation should be stopped, as the purported benefits no longer outweigh the risks,” said FAN Director, Paul Connett, PhD.
*The researchers write in the results section: …the realistic net annual social cost savings by using NaF is shown to range from about $1 billion (case 1) to about $6 billion (case 4) as shown in Table 3. We show in the Supplementary Material that with As levels that would pass the NFS/ANSI Standard 60, i.e. 380 ppm As, the savings could be as great as $14 billion/year…”
