Mount Crosby Pipeline Maintenance – Brisbane – Queensland
It is commendable that the maintenance of this vital infrastructure is underway,
however the corrosion INSIDE these pipes and the over seven thousand +
kilometres of water mains in South East Queensland can be
reduced as soon as water fluoridation is stopped.
Corrosion by fluoride ⇓
It is of some concern to us that many kilometres of asbestos cement water pipe are being damaged by fluoride and are releasing ASBESTOS into our drinking, laundry*** and bathing water.
Not healthy for your intestinal tract – due to the increased risk of developing benign intestinal polyps.
The asbestos-cement mixture that drinking water pipes are made of, release asbestos fibres when subjected to vibration as well as to the frictional flow of water and the corrosive action of fluorides and chlorine.
Another study looked at over 700 workers at lighthouses in Norway who served as keepers at any point between 1917 and 1967. A subset of those workers had consumed asbestos-contaminated water. This group was at a significantly increased risk of developing digestive cancers, with the greatest risk specifically for stomach cancer.
***Asbestos fibres can be distributed throughout household air from drying laundry washed in asbestos contaminated water.
