This is for you Yinzer V!
If you want to see the Philomath water analysis showing 46.5 mg. of arsenic per liter of water (the same concentration that will be added to Portland's water) I got a copy, scanned it, and posted it to my personal blog. You are more than welcome to check it out. http://inarasart.blogspot.com/2013/05/anti…
I love all you smart, thinking Portlanders!!!!!! Just say no to Fluoride!!! You totally made my day!!! (I'm not being sarcastic) Love, 35 year old thyroid cancer mommy who wants to live to see her baby grow up!!!!!! Bless each and every one of you!!!
Yinzer V, wow...I have an actual copy of an actual INDEPENDENT chemical analysis done on the "Fluoridation Chemicals" used in Philomath, the same wonderful company that will be supplying the "Fluoridation Chemicals" for Portland. It is not a "supposed" report. It is the real deal. I will scan it and email it to anyone who would like to see it for themselves. Only INDEPENDENT testing can be trusted, everybody knows that. It would be the equivalent of "peer review" that your cronies are espousing over on the HKHP thread, which I got banned from for posting these very BASIC SCIENTIFIC FACTS. I can't believe how rude all you paid thugs are being on these social forums. And that Portlanders are actually falling for this crap. I guess that must be your strategy though, divide and conquer, eh?
@Yinzer V-"scare-mongering conspiracy theorist"? Wow, that is really offensive. I will say, however, that you are smart for being one of HKHP's paid thugs. Just remember that others are too. I have a Master of Arts in Teaching, and a Bachelor of Arts in English, as well as being a CANCER SURVIVOR and a very happy artist mommy. Let's play nice, ok? However, since you asked, here is a metal by metal comparison of the EPA limits vs. what was discovered in Philomath's "Fluoridation Chemicals" last month. And just for everyone's reading pleasure, any adverse health effects from exceeding these limits, straight from the EPA's own website! (And yes, indeed I do have a copy of the report in my hand. How lovely!!!)
ARSENIC (Skin damage or problems with circulatory systems, and may have increased risk of getting cancer)
EPA Limit 0.010 mg/L
Philomath 46.5 mg/L
ALUMINUM (No side effects)
EPA Limit .05-.2 mg/L
Philomath 6.93 mg/L
MERCURY (Kidney damage)
EPA Limit .002 mg/L
Philomath .004 mg/L
LEAD (Infants and children: Delays in physical or mental development; children could show slight deficits in attention span and learning abilities
Adults: Kidney problems; high blood pressure)
EPA Limit ZERO
CHROMIUM (Allergic dermatitis)
EPA Limit .1 mg/L
Philomath 1.55 mg/L
SELENIUM (Hair or fingernail loss; numbness in fingers or toes; circulatory problems)
EPA Limit .05 mg/L
Philomath .4 mg/L
CADMIUM (Kidney damage)
EPA Limit .005 mg/L
And just for fun, these are the side effects of exceeding the EPA limit for Flouride, which is 4 mg/L: Bone disease (pain and tenderness of the bones); Children may get mottled teeth.
Channel 8 just reported that a chemical analysis was done on Philomath's "Flouridation Chemicals" (the same chemicals that are going to be used in Portland) and the results show disturbingly high levels of Arsenic, Aluminum, Chromium, and Selenium, as well as concerning levels of lead, cadmium, and mercury. I just can't believe that people don't realize (or maybe just don't care)-YOU WILL BE DRINKING THIS STUFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
@David, all Portland Schoolchildren between the ages of 3 through 5th grade are eligible to receive FREE fluoride tablets at school.
Basic research reveals the following:
1) All Portland schoolchildren between the ages of 3 and 5th grade can receive FREE fluoride tablets at school.
Districts served include:
■Portland Public School District
■Centennial School District
■David Douglas School District
■Gresham-Barlow School District
■Parkrose School District
■Reynolds School District
■Corbett School District
2) All uninsured Oregon children under the age of 18 are eligible for free/low-cost dental care coverage through the Oregon Health Plan.
3) There are quite a few dental clinics in our community that offer free/low-cost dental care to those who need it.
I myself grew up on free dental care from the Russell Street Dental Clinic in Portland. I did not grow up on fluoridated water. I have excellent teeth. My mother was just very diligent about taking me twice a year for cleanings and check-ups. We were very poor but she made it a priority.
