The first thing you should know is that the fluoride being put into our public drinking water is not a pharmaceutical grade additive. It is not pure sodium fluoride. It is hydrofluosilicic acid and contains other contaminants that are not measured. It is an industrial toxic waste byproduct that otherwise would have to be disposed of in a safe manner to protect the environment. In fact, the product comes to the water treatment plants in a sack marked “DANGER – POISON” with two skull and crossbones.
Hydrofluoric acid burns, not evident until a day later
Don’t let them tell you it is just coming from lead pipes or lead paint only! Lead ALSO comes from the actual raw fluoride product that is shipped into your local water plant to be dispersed into our tap water!
A Certificate of Analysis should be provided with all fluoride products delivered to site. This is not happening, and the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) is not enforcing this requirement! This certificate must be provided by the manufacturer or the supplier for all fluoride products. Click here to see a sample Certificate of Analysis. Please note that this same Certificate of Analysis for Hydrofluoric Acid lists arsenic, mercury, and lead along with many other contaminants.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that “No safe blood lead level in children has been identified and that lead exposure can affect nearly every system in the body.”
There are approximately half a million U.S. children ages 1-5 with blood lead levels above 5 micrograms per deciliter (µg/dL), the reference level at which CDC recommends public health actions be initiated. According to the EPA, exposure to lead in drinking water can result in delayed physical or neurologic development in infants and children, and can cause high blood pressure, kidney problems, and cancer in adults. Moreover, a growing body of evidence suggests adverse health effects result even at blood levels below the 10 µg/dL “level of concern” at which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends intervention.
"The MCLG, or maximum contaminant level goal, is the level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. The MCLG for lead is zero.
The government is blaming a lot of high blood lead levels found in children on the lead in the paint in old houses, but this statement comes with NO scientific data to back it up. The easiest way to prove this is to have an independent laboratory test the water to see what all the contaminants are in the water. KAR Laboratory can do all this for $49.95 which includes prepaid shipping. This charge includes 2 tests for bacteria, 23 tests for water quality ions, nutrients and minerals, and 70 tests for metals and heavy meals.
Speaking of lead levels found in children, here’s an informative article: Fluoridation Increases Lead Absorption in Children
The latest city in Arkansas discovered to have elevated lead levels in their water was Harrison, Arkansas. This was verified by an independent water test lab.
All of the fluoride products used in the artificial fluoridation of drinking water are contaminated with lead and arsenic, in addition to the leaching of lead from lead pipes! Lead damage to your body may be irreversible.
Remember, there are a couple of ways you can get overexposed to lead:
When the water operators add the artificial chemical fluoride product at the water plant, all fluoride has lead and other dangerous chemicals in the product.
Fluoride leaches lead from lead pipes, fittings, and meters.
To eliminate the leaching of lead from plumbing, all fluoridation must be banned.
The following is a short list of some of lead contamination of water supplies around the country:
Lead contamination is a problem around the country, and it is going to get worse!
Everyone, please pay attention to this article below.
From the Washington Post article linked directly above:
“Cities across the country are manipulating the results of tests used to detect lead in water, violating federal law and putting millions of Americans at risk of drinking more of the contaminant than their suppliers are reporting.
Some cities, including Philadelphia and Boston, have thrown out tests that show high readings or have avoided testing homes most likely to have lead, records show. In New York City, the nation's largest water provider has for the past three years assured its 9.3 million customers that its water was safe because the lead content fell below federal limits. But the city has withheld from regulators hundreds of test results that would have raised lead levels above the safety standard in two of those years, according to records.”
Jeff Stone, Director of Engineering at the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH), reported to Arkansas Online on February 5, 2016 that “for lead at taps, tests show state 99% in the clear”. This can’t be true! Secure Arkansas is requesting that water sample tests should be performed in several locations in each water district of our state. The ADH must be bypassed in the collecting of water samples for the laboratory. Other contaminants, besides lead, needs to be tested for. Click here to see an example of all the tests that should be run.
We can’t depend on the Arkansas Department of Health to provide a good report on the quality of our drinking water. If we are interested in the quality of our drinking water, we must get the drinking water tested for ourselves.
At present, there are several areas around the country that are not in compliance with lead and other contaminant levels. We have found a lab — KAR Laboratories — that will provide a timely analysis of the contaminants found in the water samples collected. (Secure Arkansas does NOT make one penny from this test kit.) Click here to see a sample Lab Report for the Kit 90 that is discussed below.
KAR H2OAssure Elite
Drinking Water Test Kit
for potable waters including wells and municipal water
Lead Leads the News – All of our kits test for the heavy metal toxin Lead, one of our most commonly detected contaminants. Also included is the Corrosivity test to determine if your water leaches Lead from pipes, or protects (coats) the pipes.
Kit-90 is the original Test Kit from Kar. It's been updated to include two and a half times more tests, making these kits truly elite and in a class all by themselves
Prepaid shipping both ways. This kit ships to all 50 states.
Kar Laboratories will mail your kit the day your order it, or no later than the next business day.
Click here to Kar Laboratories to order your Kit 90 kit.
When you get to the Kar Laboratories page, select the quantity of the kits you want to order, and click on the Buy Now button.
Spread the word! You can have people go in together on the price of one kit for your area.
UPDATE: We never heard back from Arkansas Governor Hutchinson regarding free water testing. We believe that multiple testing needs to be performed by an independent lab all around the state, thus bypassing ADH completely.
