Is Your Fluoride "Made in China"?

Much of the fluoride added to municipal water supplies across the United States is imported from China, and is contaminated with heavy metals, according to a warning by Bernard Miltenberger, president of the Pure Water Committee of Western Maryland.

In a letter published in the Cumberland Times-News, Miltenberger notes that he first became aware of the issue in an engineering report for the city of Boulder, Colo. The report noted that the fluoridation chemicals used for the city's water had been evaluated, and were found to contain lead levels of 40 milligrams per bag and arsenic levels of 50 milligrams per bag. The bags were being imported from China under no regulatory monitoring of acid or salt content.

Guess where your fluoride comes from? China!

  1. And why is it bad that it's made in China? Anyone?

    Lack of regulation.

    And before you say it: no, just because they're communists doesn't mean it's properly regulated. That would be like claiming just because someone is Christian, they're a moral person.

    Anyhoo, yeah, they ought to stop adding fluoride. Sell it in bottles as "Hydrodent" for people too fucking lazy to brush.

  2. Also, I avoid this problem by never using water. I even boil pasta in Sprite, cause I'll be damned if I'm going to buy bottled water (I make all my purchasing decisions based on 90's stand-up; I also never buy food from hotel mini-bars).
