Re: National Research Council Committee:
Toxicologic Risk of Fluoride in Drinking Water; BEST-K-02-05-A
Dear Susan Martell,
Please send this email to Committee members.
On September 13, 2005, “Objections and Request for Hearing”
were submitted to US EPA on new pesticide tolerances for sulfuryl
fluoride. As the Committee is most likely aware, the US EPA has
approved the highest tolerance for fluoride residues in its history
on July 15, 2005*, for dried eggs at 900 ppm.
The Objections were submitted by FAN, the Environmental Working
Group and Beyond Pesticides.
