Seattle Public Utilities has added fluoride to Seattle’s city water since 1970, at a targeted level of 1.0 part per million. This supplemental fluoride is actually silicofluoride, a toxic industrial waste, which also contains arsenic and lead, as is the “fluoride” added to water supplies in the rest of the United States. Many residents oppose the addition of an unregulated and non-dosage controlled medication to our drinking water. In Washington state, the citizens’ group Washington Action for Safe Water is working to end the fluoridation of our waters.
