I do not know where their information originated but it is quite well known that fluoride additives are not pumped into water as "gas flourine". Water fluoridation currently, and, for some time, has been in the form of adding hydrofluosilicic acid.
Fluoride in any form is not "inert", and NO, I would not do very good as a corporate lobbyist because I don't do a good job of altering facts to fit a sales scheme.
"Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Himalayan Salt FAD May Be a Health Risk": Again, into US water is pumped the gas flourine. It cannot be removed with filters of any sort. Flouride, such as in salts, is an inert ingredient which is an entirely different kettle of tea. Havve you thought of applying for a job as a corporate lobbyist?"Commenting below on the above quote is an internationally respected fluoride researcher -
"Again, into US water is pumped the gas flourine."
Nonsense. First of all, it's FLUORINE and FLUORIDE, not flourine and flouride....
FLUORINE is a gas, and is NOT used in water fluoridation.
The two agents used most commonly for water fluoridation in the US are hydrofluorosilicic acid and.
"Flouride, such as in salts, is an inert ingredient which is an entirely different kettle of tea."
FLUORIDE, even in the form of, the compound called "natural fluoride" by those ignorant on this issue, is NOT inert.

I always welcome comments, however they should be realistic and free from links to advertising. At NHN we reserve the right to use, not use/and or post, submitted comments accordingly.
Perhaps this is one of the most ill informed comments received at Natural Health News since Mike Adams directed his ad hominem attacks against me personally, our organization, and Natural Health News. Adams made a rash of defamatory comments about me, including one alluding to his unfounded claim that NHN is PhRMA funded.
Interestingly, Natural Health News is fully transparent; Adams, his unidentified Taiwanese (and or other) backers, as well as their hundreds of webseed (seedweb) vacuous web sites based in Canada, are not.
Perhaps Adams is the one backed by PhRMA, and he is just projecting fear and guilt.
