Water Fluoridation Targets Black Americans, Indigenous Australians+
In all three populations studied, those children in each racial
category and each age group who were highly likely to be
exposed to silicofluorides differ strongly in levels
of blood lead from those not exposed.
At present, U.S. public water systems serving over 140 million people are fluoridated with 200,000 tons of commercial grade hydrofluosilicic acid (H2SiF6) and sodium silicofluoride (Na2SiF6), together called “silicofluorides” (or “SiFs”). Data from numerous studies show that, taking economic, social and racial factors into account, where silicofluorides are used, children absorb more lead from the environment, and there are higher rates of diseases and behavioral problems associated with lead poisoning (including hyperactivity, substance abuse, and violent crime).
