Fluoridating the World Mathematically

Print Friendly

Question:

Hi, I was just reading your website about fluoride in water
and I have a question.  I am no scientist so this could be
a very stupid question and I’m sorry if it is.

You say that fluoride cannot be filtered out of water once
it is in it and that fluoride evaporates with water.  Does
this mean that as a result of water companies adding
fluoride to water supplies, eventually all of the water on
the planet will be heavily fluoridated?

Answer: 

The key word used is “heavily”.  The current standard level
of fluoridation (i.e. the level that humans can poison humans)
is 1 part per million so we will use that figure.

(1) A Google query for “how much water on Earth?” produces
this from the USGS page:

“If all of Earth’s water (oceans, icecaps and glaciers, lakes,
rivers, groundwater, and water in the atmosphere was put
into a sphere, then the diameter of that water ball would
be about 860 miles…  The volume of all water would be
about 332.5 million cubic miles…  A cubic mile of water
equals more than 1.1 trillion gallons.”
http://ga.water.usgs.gov/edu/earthhowmuch.html

Multiplying:
332.5 million * 1.1 trillion = 365 million trillion gallons

Expanding, we get 365,000,000,000,000,000,000 gallons

(2) Also from that USGS page:

“In the United States in 2005, we used about 328 billion
gallons per day of surface water and about 82.6 billion
gallons per day of groundwater.”

Adding those two, we get 410.6 billion gallons per day.

Expanding, we get 410,600,000,000 gallons per day.

(3) Now for some approximations.  The U.S. fluoridates about
two-thirds of the population.  The rest of the world that
fluoridates is about equal to this.  So we will say that the
amount of poison being added in the U.S., doubled, will equal
the total world poisoning.

So: 410,600,000,000 gallons * 1ppm fluoride poison per gallon

= 410,600 gallons of fluoride, one of the most deadly
poisons man has ever created, being disposed of in the
World’s drinking water supplies…per day.

(4) How long until all the water in the world is fluoride
poisoned to the concentration of 1 part per million?

365,000,000,000,000,000,000 / (410,600,000,000 * 2) = 444,471,505

In other words, in 444,471,505 years, every drop of water
on Earth will be fluoridated to the “optimal” level that
our governments want to poison us at, if we continue to add
fluorine to drinking water.

(5) Other sources adding fluoride poison to the Earth:

The Wikipedia page on Aluminum Smelting (the process of
extracting Aluminum from rock) reveals how much fluorine
is released:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aluminium_smelting

It says 0.5 to 4 kg fluorine compounds per ton of Aluminum
is the range.

(6) Aluminum Smelting pollution simplification:

We’ll take the average, of about 2 kg F per ton Al.  Convert
that to pounds: 2 * 2.2 = 4.4 pounds F per ton Al.

(7) Amount of Al produced each year:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aluminium#Production_and_refinement

Wikipedia is a bit shoddy on details, but taking Australia’s
production (68 million “tonnes) and estimating the Chinese
production as similar (another 68 million “tonnes), adding
and converting to pounds we get: (68M + 68M) * 2.2 = 299.2M

(8) Amount of F released into the air from Al production

[299.2M ton/year of Al] * 4.4 pounds F/ton = 1,316 M pounds F/year

Expanding, we get 1,316,000,000 pounds F/year from Al smelting

(9) Converting F into air/year into “fluoridated water” gal/day

(1,316,000,000 pounds F/year) * (1 year/365 days) = 3,606,794 lb/day

1 lb of fluoride can fluoridate 1 million lb of water, and there
are 8 pounds in a gallon, so we get:
450,800,000,000 gallons/day poisoned by Al smelting

(10) Recalculating our time to fluoridate every drop:

365 billion billion / (410,600*2 + 450,800 million) = 286,900,000 years

So we will have completely “optimally fluoridated” every drop on
Earth in just 286,900,000 years, based on Aluminum smelting and
our own direct poisoning of our water.

(11) Amount of Fluorine pollution from fertilizer production:

Lost the link, but learned that:
2 kg Fluoride “pollutant” per ton of P2O3 are allowed.
(P2O3 is phosphorous oxide, the fertilizer compound desired)

And according to this page:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fertilizer

A 50 pound bag of fertilizer has 2 pounds of phosphorous
(and 8 pounds of nitrogen) in it.

World use of fertilizer is about 40,000,000 tons Nitrogen/year

40 Mton N/year * 2/8 = 10 Mton P2O3/year

10 Mton P2O3/year * 2 kg F / ton P2O3 * 1/2.2 lb/kg = 44M lb F/year

(12) F into air/year into “fluoridated water” gal/day

(44,000,000 pounds F/year) * (1 year/365 days) = 120,547 lb/day

1 lb of fluoride can fluoridate 1 million lb of water, and there
are 8 pounds in a gallon, so we get:
15,068,000,000 gallons/day poisoned by fertilizer production

(13) How long until all the water in the world is fluoride
poisoned to the concentration of 1 part per million, using
Al smelting, fertilizer and government meddling sources?

365 billion billion / (410,600*2 + 450,800 + 15,068 million)
= 283,590,000 years

(14) Other variables: Coal

This page:
http://www.fluorideresearch.org/372/files/FJ2004_v37_n2_p125-132.pdf
says that Chinese coal contains 150 mg F per kg coal

This page:
http://www.nationmaster.com/graph/ene_coa_con-energy-coal-consumption
says that China burns 1,310,000,000 tons of coal per year.

1,310,000,000 tons * 0.000150 tons F/tons coal = 196,500 tons F/year

196,500 tons F/year / 365 = 538 tons F per day, from coal

1 lb of fluoride can fluoridate 1 million lb of water, and there
are 8 pounds in a gallon, so we get:
538 ton * 2000 lb/ton * 1,000,000 * 1/8 gal/lb = 134,500 M gal

(15) Considering all sources so far:

365 billion billion / (410,600*2 + 450,800 + 15,068 + 134,500 million)
= 256,758,000 years

(16) Summary and comments

In 256,758,000 years, all things going well, every drop of water
on Earth will be fluoridated to the “optimal” level that our
governments want to poison us at.

The fluorine-from-fertilizer calculation probably has the largest
errors as information was the most difficult to come by.

Aluminum smelting produces more fluorine pollution than any other
man made source.  Yet when you research fluorine pollution from
fertilizer production and the burning of coal, even those two
create massive environmental problems and health loss.

This (PDF) page:
http://www.bfsweb.org/onemillion/W10%20One%20in%20a%20Million%20-%20Environmental%20aspects%20of%20water%20fluoridation.pdf
says that “most rivers” in the U.S. already measure 0.33 ppm fluoride
so we are very close to successfully poisoning most rivers in the U.S.
to the optimal level.

The government is doing a better job of fluoridating the Earth’s
water than the smelting, coal and fertilizer industries put together.
Karl Marx would be proud.

Nature is letting the human side down, badly.  This USGS page:
http://volcanoes.usgs.gov/hazards/gas/
says that volcanoes are not a major source of fluoride emissions.
I guess that means we get all the credit for poisoning the planet.

Finally, it is evident that the majority (57%) of all fluorine-based
pollutants are being “managed” by being added to our drinking water.
We are being forced to drink the _majority_ of one of the greatest
man-made poisons ever made.  Comparing to the nuclear industry, this
would be like being told to make clothing out of the majority of
all radioactive waste we produce.  Interesting that the nuclear industry

admits there is no “clean up” of nuclear waste — only dilution is possible.

See you in the year 256,760,747!
