Fluorosilicic Acid: The Silent Killer in Drinking Water
Renewal time: 2011-11-08 11:23:27
Water is essential for your survival because your organs and cells need it to function properly. According to scientists, the human body is made up about 70 percent water. Because your body is made of mostly water, the quality of the water you put in your body can significantly harm or improve your health. Most of the water in the United States and many European countries contain very toxic chemicals.
Manufacturers of these chemicals claim that the chemicals are needed to treat the water and they are important for health. Their claims are misleading and are only aimed for profits. According to researchers, if you live in the United States, a great portion of your drinking water is treated with a very toxic chemical called fluorosilicic acid also known as hydrofluorosilicic acid. Other toxins found in US drinking water are arsenic, chlorine, fluoride, lead, hydrofluoric acid and pharmaceutical drugs. In small levels, these toxins are not lethal but they will accumulate in the body and cause chronic health problems later on in life. This is why they are known as the silent killers.
"Fluorosilicic acid is a waste product of the phosphate fertilizer industry and is heavily contaminated with toxins and heavy metals (including the cancerous arsenic, lead and cadmium) and radioactive materials. This substance is the waste residue from the superphosphate fertilizer industry, and about 70 to 75 percent of this stuff comes from the Cargill fertilizer manufacturing company.
Dr. J. William Hirzy, EPA scientist, is reported to have said, "If the stuff gets out into the air, it’s a pollutant; if it gets into the river, it’s a pollutant, if it gets into a lake, it’s a pollutant; but if it goes right straight into your drinking water system, it’s not a pollutant. That’s amazing!""
"The fluoride added to 90% of drinking water is hydrofluoric acid which is a compound of fluorine that is a chemical byproduct of aluminum, steel, cement, phosphate, and nuclear weapons manufacturing.
Hydrofluoric acid is used to refine high octane gasoline, to make fluorocarbons and chlorofluorocarbons for freezers and air conditioners, and to manufacture computer screens, fluorescent light bulbs, semiconductors, plastics, herbicides, and toothpaste."
The toxic chemicals found in drinking water are so overwhelming that independent researcher have linked them to many chronic diseases. If you want to significantly improve your health, you will need to drink water free of toxic chemicals, including fluoride, chlorine, lead, arsenic, hydrofluoric acid and fluorosilicic acid. The most convenient way to reduce most of these toxins is to use a water filter system that can remove most contaminants and fluoride. Reverse osmosis and activated alumina water filter systems are usually recommended for removing these toxins. For activated alumina water filter systems, I recommend Royal Berkey with PF-2 fluoride filters (aff. link).
