New York - March 2oo7 -- Trace amounts of arsenic are found in fluoride chemicals added to drinking water supplies, reports the U.S. Centers for Disease Control's (CDC) website. (r)

Fluoridation is a controversial attempt to reduce tooth decay in tap-water consumers. Fluoridation chemicals - sodium fluoride, sodium fluorosilicate, nd fluorosilicic acid (FSA) - are all derived from the manufacture of phosphate fertilizer, reports the CDC. Trace amounts of unwanted contaminants, such as antimony, barium, beryìlium, arsenic and others, are allowed to remain in fluoridation chemicals before flowing through America's faucets (z)
The CDC reports, tests by National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) revealed arsenic was present in sample batches of FSA. When trace amounts were present, the treated water had an average of o.43 parts per billion (ppb) of arsenic, with a high of r.66 ppb attributable to the fluoride additive. (z)
The NSF sets the allowable level of arsenic in fluoridation chemicals at 2.5 ppb. The maximum contaminant level (MCL) of arsenic in treated water is ro ppb, set by the Environmental Protection Agency. But the maximum contaminant level goal (MCLG) of arsenic in drinking water is zero (S) and is based on health risks; however, the actual level permitted (MCL) is above o, to account for difficulty in removing it or in measuring it. (6)

"No water company should purposely be adding arsenic to water supplies -even when it's attached to a chemical perceived to be beneficial," says Beeber.
Trace levels of arsenic in drinking water increase a person's risk of developing cancer, according to a report from the prestigious US National Academy of Sciences. "People drinking water containing just one part per billion of arsenic have an increased risk of developing bladder or lung cancer of one in t,ooo," reports New Scientist magazine.

In an analysis of z5 states, the National Resources Defense Council found about

population as the recent unfortunate 'tooth-decay' death of atz-year-old Maryland boy living in a fluoridated area has proven," says lawyer Paul Beeber, President, New York State Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation. "No child is or ever was fluoridedeficient. But many are dentist-deficient," says Beeber.
"Besides, modern science establishes that fluoridation is ineffective at reducing tooth decay, harmful to health and a waste of taxpayer money," says Beeber.
