HSFA = another reason to go OFF GRID on your municipal water supply

In memory of the FLINT disaster reduce & or eliminate unnecessary corrosive effluents in our drinking water.

Buzz below is a correction to the 100 times of arsenic down to 30 times. Even still, the added risk of extra lead since the Flint event makes us pause and realize that those older homes (like mine) cost $5,000 on average per household to replace and update plumbing.
No LEAD risk added to our drinking water is my simple request.

Please read these links and deny or table item 5 on the consent agenda. HFSA (Hydrofluosilicic Acid) is an industrial grade fertilizer waste product (with arsenic!) and has been added to our drinking for the purpose of fluoridation.
This needs to stop NOW as my husband had radiation treatment for cancer in 2013 and is already having to soak his teeth & gums in 1.1% Sodium Fluoride pharmaceutical grade as a lifelong dental cream regiment.
Fluoride dumbs down people….adding risk to higher lead levels also hurts our children’s IQ. We are smarter than this! At least buy a pharmaceutical grade…money up and spend our taxes more wisely.
In memory of the FLINT disaster reduce & or eliminate unnecessary corrosive effluents in our drinking water.
For the consideration of Arlington residents please pull this item off the consent agenda and either deny or table it and take the time to do your own research thank you.
Excerpts:
“Our petition asks that you exercise authority under section 6 of the TSCA, (15 United States Code, Chapter 53, Section 2605), to prohibit the use of HFSA as a water fluoridation agent. A commercially available substitute, pharmaceutical grade sodium fluoride, delivers at least 100-fold lower levels of arsenic than does HFSA when water authorities choose to adjust their water supply to contain about 0.7 milligrams per liter of fluoride”.
 
“HFSA meets the criteria for classification as a hazardous waste (toxicity, reactivity and corrosivity) under 42 United States Code, Section 6901 et seq”.  


“HFSA is highly corrosive and eats through stainless steel as well as glass containment. It is also known to accelerate corrosion of metallic as well as cement lined water distribution pipes, even when diluted. This highly corrosive nature of HFSA, even at concentrations in Ontario’s drinking water, is seen to leach out lead content from lead pipes, leaded solder, and leaded brass fittings, all contained within many water distribution and supply systems, thereby adding more lead content to the water we drink and use daily, beyond the trace levels of lead found within the HFSA itself. Maas et. al. 2007 published research in the Journal of NeuroToxicology indicating that over the first test week with chlorine flushing alone, lead concentrations nearly doubled (from 100 ppb to nearly 200 ppb), and when (hydro)fluorosilicic acid was added to the water, lead concentrations spiked by a factor of nine. Coplan et. al. 2007 published research in the Journal of NeuroToxicology to confirm and explain elevated blood lead levels and other disorders in children exposed to water disinfection and fluoridation chemicals. This research identified that living in communities with silicofluoride treated (HFSA treated) water is associated with neurotoxic effects. Silicofluoride, lead, and mercury are all scientifically recognized neurotoxins, which build up in our bodies over a lifetime of exposure and consumption”.

About Kim Triolo Feil

Since TX Statute 253.005 forbids drilling in heavily settled municipalities, I unsuccessfully ran for City Council Seat to try to enforce this. Since Urban Drilling, our drinking water has almost tripled for TTHM's. Before moving to Arlington in 1990, I lived in Norco’s “cancer alley”, a refinery town. It was only after Urban Drilling in Arlington did I start having health effects. After our drill site was established closest to my home, the chronic nosebleeds started. I know there are more canaries here in Arlington having reactions to our industrialized airshed (we have 55-60 padsites of gas wells). Come forward and report to me those having health issues especially if you live to the north/northwest of a drill site so I can map your health effects on this blog.
