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.
