Most sources of drinking water in the United States (U.S.) and many Western countries contain very toxic chemicals. Manufacturers of these chemicals claim that the chemicals are needed to treat the water and some of the chemicals are important for health. Their claims are misleading and are only aimed for profits.
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 (H2SiF6). Hydrofluorosilicic acid is the diluted version of fluorosilicic acid.
H2SiF6 is a chemical often known by other names, like fluorosilicic acid, fluosilicic acid, silicofluoride, and silicofluoric acid. It is a colorless chemical that is created when you take phosphoric rock from the ground and convert it to soluble fertilizer. In this process, two very toxic fluoride gases are released with hydrogen fluoride being one of them; the other is silicon tetrafluoride. The condensation from this hydrogen fluoride is collected, then scrubbed with water.
The powder version of fluorosilicic acid is called sodium fluorosilicate and sodium fluoride, not to be confused with calcium fluoride. Calcium fluoride is naturally found in soil whereas sodium fluoride is a synthetic toxic waste known to cause cancer. This is the same sodium fluoride found in toothpaste.
Sodium fluoride is even more toxic than most rat poison. Would you put rat poison in your drinking water or toothpaste? If you eat a lot of conventional food, you are poisoning your body with sodium fluoride, because it is one of the main ingredients in pesticide, insecticide and fungicide. Other toxins found in U.S. drinking water are arsenic, chlorine, lead, and pharmaceutical drugs.
In very small levels, these toxins are not lethal. However, consuming them for long periods of time will cause them to accumulate in the body, causing chronic health problems later on in life. This is why they are known as silent killers.
