In fact, I couldn't decide what to title this thread because it's just SOOOO phat:
Carroll County News: Fluoride suppliers not co-operating
...state Rep. Loy Mauch of Bismarck attempted to introduce House Bill 1205, the Arkansas Water Additive Act. The Act establishes criteria for disclosure of content, impurities, testing and origin of anything added to drinking water supplies beyond those required by law for disinfection. The bill states these disclosures are essential so the safest products can be chosen for public health and so effective emergency response can be mounted should the need arise.
Jim Walls, a former water operator with Hot Springs County who suffered life-debilitating health effects in a fluoride accident, also testified.
In the meantime, Allison has attempted to obtain information about available fluoride products. One of the suppliers of disinfection chemicals told Allison his company also supplies fluoride but would be "unable to provide the documentation Jim had requested." "This document, which we believe they should possess in their files, would likely be the same document they would furnish the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) for proper certification," Fonseca wrote. "This would give us complete disclosure of the raw product, along with a list of all contaminants by weight, and associated studies pertaining to those contaminants."
Allison then drafted and sent a letter to 49 fluoride suppliers listed at the ANSI website, requesting the information needed to make an informed decision in a timely manner. Jim was hoping for a 30 percent to 50 percent reply, which would give us an ample pool of manufacturers and suppliers to choose the safest product," Fonseca wrote.
After 90 days, not one has replied, he said. "We have not faced anything this challenging regarding product selection at Carroll-Boone Water District and find it a little puzzling why no one has sent a timely response."
All the more reason to trust fluoride being in our water !!!
