FDA fails to ban ‘forever chemicals’ from food containers, despite known health risks
WASHINGTON – The Food and Drug Administration is again failing to protect consumers from the toxic “forever chemicals” known as PFAS. Despite evidence that PFAS from these containers can contaminate the food in them, the FDA is merely reminding food packaging makers against unauthorized use of the substances, instead of banning them. The FDA today […]United States, National USA Perfluorinated chemicals
What does Iowa’s new fluoride law mean for North Iowa?
Note from Fluoride Action Network: It’s unfortunate that the only adverse effects of fluoride mentioned in this article are dental fluorosis and bone. And the sources used for each of these issues are from fluoridation promoters, National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Steven Levy, respectively. As for bone, a 2021 major prospective cohort study from […]United States, Iowa
The NY State Department of Health announces the availability of funding for Drinking Water Fluoridation.
NYSDA [New York State Dental Association] and its charitable arm, the New York State Dental Foundation (the Foundation), have long been strong advocates for an infrastructure funding program to implement fluoridation of community water systems and to replace aging water fluoridation equipment in communities throughout New York State. This essential initiative removes the possibility of […]United States, New York
AHS launches pro-fluoride campaign in Calgary ahead of election
According to a July Leger poll, 58 per cent of respondents said they supported returning fluoride to the city’s water supply Alberta Health Services is launching a public education campaign endorsing the benefits of fluoride in drinking water ahead of Calgary’s plebiscite this fall. On Oct. 18, Calgarians will get another chance to vote on […]Canada, Alberta
Australian Bauxite’s rare earth, aluminium fluoride progress
A Tasmanian miner is hoping to make good money from rare earth elements important for high-tech uses. Australian Bauxite Limited‘s June quarter report confirmed its discovery of rare earth elements in its bauxite tenement in Northern Tasmania. It said the rare earth element metals discovered were the main rare earth element components of super-magnets needed […]Australia Aluminum Industry
Port Macquarie-Hastings Council urged to resume adding fluoride to the town’s water supply
It’s been revealed residents of the Port Macquarie-Hastings region have not had fluoride added to their drinking water in more than 18 months, leading to a call from the NSW Health Minister to resume fluoridation. Key points: A letter from the NSW Health Minister reveals the Port Macquarie-Hastings Council stopped fluoridating local water supplies in […]Australia
Removal of fluoride from water using aluminum hydroxide-loaded zeolite synthesized from coal fly ash
Highlights Aluminum hydroxide coated zeolite (AHZ) was synthesized from coal fly ash. The maximum adsorption capacity of fluoride by AHZ reached 18.12 mg/g. Optimal fluoride adsorption was within the pH range of 5.5?6.5. Defluoridation by AHZ was fast and did not affect substantially by common anions. The mechanism of fluoride adsorption was the exchange with […]International Water Treatment
Exploring a variance decomposition approach integrated with the Monte Carlo method to evaluate groundwater fluoride exposure on the residents of a typical fluorosis endemic semi-arid tract of India
Highlights F– exceeded its estimated optimum value in drinking water at 98.8% of the study area. Infant and child age groups are more vulnerable to the toxicity of groundwater F–. The estimated optimum F– level in drinking water for the study area is 0.733 mg L-1. F– exposure via direct ingestion route was much higher […]India
Hydrogeochemical evidence for fluoride behavior in groundwater and the associated risk to human health for a large irrigation plain in the Yellow River Basin.
Highlights Infiltration of irrigation water diluted groundwater fluoride. Factors controlling fluoride were distinct along the groundwater flow paths. Health risks of fluoride through drinking water were increased with decreasing age. Abstract A hydrochemical analysis of groundwater (GW) was conducted to investigate the factors controlling GW fluoride (F) in a large irrigation plain in the Yellow […]China
