Types of Fluoride

How many types of fluoride are there?

A lot. A whole lot. When the element of fluoride is combined with something else, it becomes a fluoride compound. There is a vast range of fluorine-containing compounds because fluorine has the capability of forming compounds with nearly all the elements. Here are some common forms:

Sodium Fluoride is used in most toothpastes, mouthwashes, dental varnish, dental preparations and nutritional supplements. This same form of fluoride is used as an insecticide and pesticide, as a preservative in glues, as a growth inhibitor for bacteria, fungi and mold. Sodium fluoride is also used in making steel and aluminum products. Added to molten metal, sodium fluoride creates a more uniform metal. Other industrial uses for sodium fluoride include glass frosting and wood preservatives. Sodium Fluoride is also used in the manufacture of chemical and biological weapons. Although this form of fluoride can be used for water fluoridation, the next two forms listed are almost always used due to cost.

Calcium Fluoride (CaF2) is compound of calcium and fluorine which occurs naturally as the mineral fluorite – also called fluorspar. Most of the world’s fluorine comes from calcium fluoride. Fluorides in general are toxic to humans, however CaF2 is considered the least toxic, and even relatively harmless due to its extreme insolubility. Moreover, calcium is a well-known antidote for fluoride poisoning. When an antidote exists in combination with a poison, it makes the poison far less toxic to the body. Calcium fluoride is the form of fluoride commonly found in natural, untreated waters.

Cryolite or Sodium Aluminum Fluoride is commonly used for aluminum smelting, though is also a pesticide often applied directly to field crops, resulting in permitted fluoride residues in and on fresh fruits and vegetables. For more information on cryolite.  (For more information on cryolite.)

Fluorosilicic acid (H2SiF6) is commonly used for water fluoridation.  This form of fluoride is a toxic liquid by-product, acquired by scrubbing the chimney stacks of phosphate fertilizer manufacture. Other names for it are hexafluorosilicic, hexafluosilicic, hydrofluosilicic, and silicofluoric acid.  The CDC approximates that 95% of our water is fluoridated with fluorosilicic acid. (http://www.cdc.gov/fluoridation/fact_sheets/engineering/wfadditives.htm#1)

Sodium Fluorosilicate (Na2SiF6) is primarily added to public drinking water as a fluoridation agent. This same compound is also used as an insecticide and a wood preservative.  It is a classified hazardous waste by-product of phosphate fertilizer manufacture which, if not put into our drinking water, must be disposed of at hazardous waste facilities.  Other names for it are Sodium Fluosilicate and Sodium Silica Fluoride.

Stannous Fluoride  is the popular name given to Tin (II) fluoride. Stannous fluoride is an additive to many toothpastes because it does not become biologically inactive in the presence of calcium, as sodium fluoride does.  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tin%28II%29_fluoride)

Sulfuryl Fluoride is applied as a gas fumigant to kill insects and rodents. Using sulfuryl fluoride around food products was not allowed due to its toxicity. In 2004 the EPA reversed this policy (following long lobbying efforts by the manufacturer) and allowed its use on food.  This opened the doors for food processing companies nationwide to fumigate their facilities with sulfuryl fluoride, leaving high levels of fluoride in and on foods and even food packaging.  It has become acceptable for sulfuryl fluoride fumigations to produce fluoride residues of 70 ppm “in or on” processed foods and 130 ppm “in or on” wheat. There have been no labeling requirements for foods treated with sulfuryl fluoride, meaning that consumers have had no way of knowing which foods are treated.  (For more information on sulfuryl fluoride.)

In January 2011 this decision was reversed and in about 3 years this fumigation of food reportedly will stop.  (Order to cease sulfuryl fluoride fumigation of food products.)

    there is a way to get F out of your body. i am not a doctor but i will tell you what i did. put 1/4 cup borax in a measuring cup fill to 2 cups with baking soda in hot bath and soak for 1/2 hour. don’t use soap just wash with a soft wash cloth. wash your hair w. a small amount of shampoo. do this 2 times a weak. mix in 1 gallon distilled water 1/8 teaspoon borax and drink only this water. be sure not to put in to much borax. borax is the only known thing that will remove F from your body. never give F water to a cow it will die with in 6 wks. i had all the things you suffer from and after i year of doing these things i can walk 19 mile (if i wanted to) with out pain. Ive also dropped some extra weight i was carrying around. go to this web site and follow the leads. http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum/message1757209/pg2 good luck to you DANNY

    Ok since this is in all toothpastes is there a holistic approach to brushing teeth?

    • hippiechick says:

      If you have a natural food store around, you can find non-fluoride toothpastes pretty easily. Also, any big online storefronts like amazon or drugstore.com will carry some varieties.

      • Cati says:

        YES! There certainly ARE alternatives!
        1. You can opt-out of drinking fluoridated water (though it’s much more expensive to filter ALL your water of fluoride, like for showering). You can easily access Reverse Osmosis water at your local grocery store. Reverse Osmosis is a filtration process that only allows H20 to pass through the filtering membrane. RO isn’t a perfect long-term solution, however, since it doesn’t contain any minerals. You might consider adding trace mineral drops to your RO water.
        2. Starting out, buying non-fluoridated toothpaste is fine, however, most toothpastes contain glycerin, which can prevent remineralization of the teeth. I make my own toothpaste. 2T organic virgin coconut oil, 2T baking soda, 2T xylitol (a sort of naturally derived sweetener that supposedly helps prevent tooth decay) and then peppermint essential oil to taste. It does take a little getting used to, if you’re used to your toothpaste frothing up and tasting super sweet (the baking soda makes it taste salty). But it’s really mind over matter. I’ve noticed that this toothpaste REALLY helps combat bad breath all day long. Oh! You can also add trace mineral drops to this recipe!
        3. You get fluoride in any bottled beverage (unless it says spring water or that it doesn’t have fluoride, you can bet it does), from your non-stick pans, through mechanically separated chicken, from your toothpaste (if you haven’t switched yet), in your canned foods, on fruits and vegetables and if you have municipal water, you’re getting it there, too! SO, what I’m saying is, don’t worry about cutting it completely from your diet…it’s nearly impossible!

        You really gotta do the best with what you have, where you are, now. Baby steps!

        Good luck!

    If its not for depopulation it is for crippling people mentally and physically. I am a 50 year old woman who drank the water for all my life, and took the prozac for 10 years. I have been suffering from accute joint pain the last two years. I quit drink the water 4 years ago and did not know the content of the prozac. There are many other drugs that contain it as well. It is worth the time to pick apart everything that you consume… the FDA doesnt really care about anything but a pay c`heck shame on them and all the doctors that went along with such a wicked scheme.

    ALL THESE NAMES FOR FLUORIDE TELLS ME THAT THE GOVERNMENT MIGHT BE STARTING TO USE FLUORIDE AS A HUMAN DEPOPULATION DEVICE. THEY ARE FEEDING US POISON. THE MORE YOU EAT THE LESS YOU LIVE. I ALSO THINK THIS MUST HAPPEN OR THE EARTH WILL SOON DIE. WE NEED A NO OR NEGATIVE POPULATION GROWTH/DECLINE. YOU SHOULD PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU EAT OR DRINK. AND PAY ATTENTION TO ALL MONSANTO PRODUCTS. AND YOU SHOULD LEARN WHATS IN YOUR MEDICATION YOU TAKE MOST OF THEM HAVE A LARGE AMOUNT OF FLUORIDE IN THEM. FLUORIDE ALSO AFFECTS THE WAY YOUR MIND WORKS. I THINK ITS THE MAIN INGREDIENT IN PROZAC AND ALSO RAT POISON. THE POPULATION IS BEING STUFFED WITH FLUORIDE. PUT IT TOGETHER FLUORIDE PROZAC POPULATION THAT DON’T THINK FOR ITS SELF= POPULATION CONTROL SEE ( NEW WORLD ORDER.) POPULATION DECLINE SEE SAVE THE EARTH..
