HHS and EPA recommends we continue fluoridation of our drinking water at .7 ppm. This would be artificial fluoridation with sodium fluoride or silicofuorides.
EPA recommends we adopt a new reference dose for fluoridation of .08 mg of fluoride per kilogram of body weight per day, which for a 70 kg person would be 5.6 mg of fluoride. Assuming the average person drinks 2.0 liters of water per day, this would mean drinking water flouridated at 2.3 ppm.
I demanded that HHS extend the comment period:
HSS responded to my letter and granted my motion that the hearing deadline be extended to April 15, 2011.
On April 14, 2011, I submitted this demand for an additional extension, both to HHS and EPA, which was not granted. I am posting it here just to show how incompetent HHS is in making its request for comment.
I submitted this Report Card for HHS and EPA, dated April 19, 2011, and updated May 19, 2011.
I submitted this Comment tp HHS and EPA Regarding Lead, Arsenic, and Water Fluoridation, dated April 19, and updated May 19, 2011.
