Fluoride spill at water plant burns holes in parking lot

By Republic Broadcasting

A recent chemical spill at a water treatment facility in Rock Island, Ill., required the assistance of an emergency relief crew decked in the very same type of hazmat suits being worn by workers at the Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear plant in Japan. Except instead of radiation, the leaked chemical at the water plant was actually hydrofluorosilicic acid, a chemical fluoride component commonly added to drinking supplies for the stated purpose of preventing cavities. This fluoride chemical is so hazardous that it actually began to burn through parking lot cement in Rock Island before emergency crews arrived on the scene.

According to reports from WQAD News 8 in Moline, a tanker truck delivering the fluoride began to overflow, leaking the chemical directly onto the parking lot where it spilled down towards the street. And before emergency crews arrived on the scene in full hazmat suits and gas masks, the fluoride had actually begun to burn a hole right through the concrete.

“It’s a corrosive agent that the water treatment plant uses,” said Rock Island assistant fire chief Jeff Yerkey, concerning the spilled fluoride. He explained that the crews had to use earthen berms, dirt, sand, and commercial broom equipment to stop the leak. Yerkey also added that there was no “inhalation hazard” from the incident, and no evacuation of local residents was required.

What is truly amazing about the incident is that this very same fluoride, which fire chief Yerkey specifically called a “corrosive agent,” is deliberately added to drinking water supplies across the nation. This highly-toxic chemical that, when spilled, requires similar protective equipment as does a radioactive fallout situation, is being added to millions of Americans drinking water supplies every single day in the name of promoting health.

In reality, the events surrounding this fluoride spill are more than enough proof for any rationally-minded person that adding this poison to water supplies is a bad idea. Anything that requires the use of a protective suit and gas mask in order to handle — and that burns a hole directly through concrete — simply cannot be good for the body when ingested.

  1. I believe hydrofluoric acid is used in the glass etching industry, thus the reason to store it in wax lined containers.

  2. The board of the Santa Clara Valley Water District (in California) held a public meeting March 22nd on water fluoridation. This summer they are scheduled to vote on whether or not to fluoridate the water supply. The board and their staff were given 20 copies of a 75-minute cd of doctors explaining the history, origin, and health hazards of this toxic waste. Doctors included John Lee, John Yiamouyannis, and Phyllis Mullenix. The audio is posted at the website http://www.MaeBrussell.com. Just go to the bottom of the homepage.

    If people were to burn a cd of that audio and spread it around (especially to churches, schools, health food stores and health clubs) you might find it very effective in waking up the public in your area. Good luck.

    • I couldn’t find the 3/23 audio clip. do you have a link?

      most of the info there seems pretty old

      • 3/23?? There are five mp3 audio clips on fluoride: Dr. John Lee 8/29/95 and 8/31/95; Dr. John Yiamouyannis 3/10/96; Dr. Phyllis Mullenix 10/24/96; and Joanie Greggains 1/15/11. I don’t know where you are getting 3/23 from. Of all the information I’ve ever come across relating to fluoride I’ve never seen anything that is more convincing and persuasive than that 75-minute cd. Even the most stubborn, brain-washed, pig-headed sheeple who believe Oswald shot JFK will suddenly wake up to what this toxic waste does to the human body once they listen to the cd. Unfortunately passing around literature isn’t very effective to most average people in the USA. Give it a try!

  3. Any grade school kid would know that a truckload of an element is hardly the same thing as a very small amount distributed through the water supply. If you want to be taken seriously, you ought to stop being silly.

    The dead brianer who sticks in the JFK comment an example of the readers here? Oswald might not have acted alone but no one believes he was without an involvement.

    • John Colquhoun was New Zealand’s chief dental officer, and chair of the Fluoridation Promotion Committee, until he looked into it himself and saw that there was no benefits of having this toxic waste dumped into the water, and saw the harmful effects it has on people. The national health department told him not to publish the study but he did anyway and he was fired.

      Canadian physician Richard G. Foulkes, special consultant to the health minister of British Columbia, looked into it and found the same thing, and he was fired. Ealier he had authored a report recommending mandatory fluoridation for the province. He later said, “I was conned by a powerful lobby.”

      All seven studies on fluoridation and effects on bone shows a higher rate of hip fractures. Germany found it caused more gingivitis, and Japan found it caused more heart disease in their country.

      All of the above is from what Fred Lapides calls “a very small amount distributed through the water supply”.

      Believing that this toxic waste is not poisonous to the human body is the equivalent of believing JFK was shot from the rear even though his head snaps back and his brains flies onto the truck of the limo. Listen to the audio at http://www.MaeBrussell.com (bottom of the homepage). Make cds and pass them around.
