Fluoride volatility experiments on irradiated thoria fuel at Canadian Nuclear Laboratories
Highlights The fluoride volatility technique was successfully applied to irradiated thoria fuel. Uranium was removed from irradiated thoria fuel, with longer fluorination times resulting in greater uranium removal for tests up to 24?h. Some fission products with volatile fluorides were also removed. Abstract Fluoride volatility experiments were completed on irradiated thoria fuel in a hot […]Canada, National Nuclear Industry
New tests beg the question: why are we buying bottled water?
BOTTLED water could be as damaging to your teeth as Coke and coffee, according to research at an Australian university. Some bottled water also contains fluoride* — one reason some people avoid tap water — and some tap water has more minerals* than bottled “mineral water”. And one company that’s been put to the test […]Australia
Why is US Failing To Inform Pregnant Women to Limit Fluoride Ingestion
NEW YORK, July 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — A recent government-funded study (Bashash et al. 2017) corroborates hundreds of previously published studies showing fluoride damages the brain. These shocking findings cannot be dismissed as “just one study” because they provide compelling evidence that pregnant women’s fluoride intake is linked to lower IQ in their offspring at […]United States, Fluoride Action Network Press Release
Environmental and anthropogenic influences on ambient background concentrations of fluoride in soil
Highlights • Mineralogy, precipitation and weathering influence background soil fluoride. • Geochemical regression tree models can predict background fluoride in soil. • Fluoride in subsurface soils exceeded recommended ecological risk thresholds. • Phosphate fertiliser indicated to be a potential source of added fluoride to soils. Abstract Excess exposure to fluoride causes substantive health burden in […]Australia Phosphate Industry
Joe Markley: Who is really conservative, and can he survive the press?
Most candidates in the primaries for the Republican nominations for governor and lieutenant governor advertise themselves as “conservative,” since the party is generally conservative and its primary voters are heavily so. But the advertising leaves “conservative” undefined, and the candidates seem to think that conservative Republicans need only to hear the word before responding reflexively […]United States, Connecticut
Uranium and Fluoride Leak at Westinghouse’s Nuclear Fuel Plant in Columbia
Columbia, SC (WLTX) – A chemical leak at Westinghouse’s Nuclear Fuel Plant in Columbia raised concerns about potential harm to drinking water. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) released a report on July 23 documenting the recent chemical spill. Radioactive uranium leaked into a 3-inch hole in the floor of their Nuclear Fuel Plant and seeped […]United States, South Carolina Nuclear Industry
European Organization for Caries Research Workshop: Methodology for determination of potentially available fluoride in toothpastes.
Abstract: Toothpastes are the most universally accepted form of fluoride delivery for caries prevention. To provide anti-caries benefits, they must be able to release fluoride during the time of tooth brushing or post brushing into the oral cavity. However, there is no standard accepted procedure to measure how much fluoride in a toothpaste may be […]International Toothpaste
Donegal councillor says it’s time to end water fluoridation
Donegal County Councillors are set to call on Irish Water to remove fluoride from national drinking water supplies. The service provider will be asked to explore alternative ways of treating Irish water, following the passing of a motion by Letterkenny MD Cllr Adrian Glackin. Speaking at July’s county council meeting, Sinn Fein Cllr Glackin raised statistics […]Ireland
Lake Superior Research Institute will sample groundwater in 11 counties
The Lake Superior Research Institute at the University of Wisconsin-Superior is launching a new study to test groundwater in 11 northwest Wisconsin counties for naturally occurring fluoride and other selected metals. The project, made possible by a $55,626 grant from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, aims to test 700 water samples from privately-owned wells […]United States, Wisconsin
