Water is essential for your survival because your organs and cells need it to function properly. According to scientists, the human body is made of about 70 percent water. Because your body is made of mostly water, it also depends heavily on water to survive, and therefore the quality of the water you put in your body can significantly harm or improve your health.
Most sources of drinking water in the United States (U.S.) and many Western countries contain very toxic chemicals. Manufacturers of these chemicals claim that the chemicals are needed to treat the water and some of the chemicals are important for health. Their claims are misleading and are only aimed for profits.
Fluorosilicic Acid (Hydrofluorosilicic Acid) and Other Hidden Toxic Chemicals in Drinking Water
If you live in the United States, a great portion of your drinking water is treated with a very toxic chemical called fluorosilicic acid, also known as hydrofluorosilicic acid (H2SiF6). Hydrofluorosilicic acid is the diluted version of fluorosilicic acid.
As described on PolyProcessing.com:
H2SiF6 is a chemical often known by other names, like fluorosilicic acid, fluosilicic acid, silicofluoride, and silicofluoric acid. It is a colorless chemical that is created when you take phosphoric rock from the ground and convert it to soluble fertilizer. In this process, two very toxic fluoride gases are released with hydrogen fluoride being one of them; the other is silicon tetrafluoride. The condensation from this hydrogen fluoride is collected, then scrubbed with water.
… Hydrofluorosilicic acid is easily the most dangerous chemical at your local water treatment plant. It can release hydrogen fluoride when it evaporates, is corrosive, and can damage the lungs if breathed in, making it especially dangerous for plant employees if stored incorrectly.
FSA also interacts negatively with metals to produce a flammable hydrogen gas, meaning a stainless steel chemical storage tank is not a viable option. It attacks glass, eats through concrete, and poses a serious storage concern. …
The powder version of fluorosilicic acid is called sodium fluorosilicate and sodium fluoride, not to be confused with calcium fluoride. Calcium fluoride is naturally found in soil whereas sodium fluoride is a synthetic toxic waste known to cause cancer. This is the same sodium fluoride found in toothpaste.
Sodium fluoride is even more toxic than most rat poison. Would you put rat poison in your drinking water or toothpaste? If you eat a lot of conventional food, you are poisoning your body with sodium fluoride, because it is one of the main ingredients in pesticide, insecticide and fungicide. Other toxins found in U.S. drinking water are arsenic, chlorine, lead, and pharmaceutical drugs.
In very small levels, these toxins are not lethal. However, consuming them for long periods of time will cause them to accumulate in the body, causing chronic health problems later on in life. This is why they are known as silent killers.
As mentioned on Organic-Gardening-and-HomeSteading.com:
Fluorosilicic acid is a waste product of the phosphate fertilizer industry and is heavily contaminated with toxins and heavy metals (including the cancerous arsenic, lead and cadmium) and radioactive materials. This substance is the waste residue from the superphosphate fertilizer industry, and about 70 to 75 percent of this stuff comes from the Cargill fertilizer manufacturing company.
Dr. J. William Hirzy, EPA scientist, is reported to have said, “If the stuff gets out into the air, it’s a pollutant; if it gets into the river, it’s a pollutant, if it gets into a lake, it’s a pollutant; but if it goes right straight into your drinking water system, it’s not a pollutant. That’s amazing!”
Another very toxic chemical found in drinking water is hydrofluoric acid. Below is an excerpt about this chemical from PreventDisease.com.
The fluoride added to 90% of drinking water is hydrofluoric acid which is a compound of fluorine that is a chemical byproduct of aluminum, steel, cement, phosphate, and nuclear weapons manufacturing.
Hydrofluoric acid is used to refine high octane gasoline, to make fluorocarbons and chlorofluorocarbons for freezers and air conditioners, and to manufacture computer screens, fluorescent light bulbs, semiconductors, plastics, herbicides, and toothpaste.
The toxic chemicals found in drinking water are so overwhelming that independent researchers have linked them to many chronic diseases. If you want to significantly improve your health, you need to drink water free of toxic chemicals, including but not limited to sodium fluoride, chlorine, lead, arsenic, hydrofluoric acid, and fluorosilicic acid.
How to Purify Drinking Water
The most convenient way to remove toxic chemicals from your drinking water is to use a water purification system that can remove most contaminants and sodium fluoride. Reverse osmosis and activated alumina water purification systems are usually recommended for removing sodium fluoride.
Water distillers are even better for purifying water of sodium fluoride and water contaminants. However, drinking distilled water for long periods of time is not wise, because this type of water is nearly free of minerals. Because of this, distilled water lack the ability to conduct an electrical charge, causing it to behave like an aggressive solvent, and therefore seizes minerals from whatever it touches. In other words, it will dissolve minerals in the body. This could be one of the main reasons why people who drink distilled water for long periods of time often get osteoporosis.
To reduce the corrosive property of distilled water, you need to add minerals to it. After doing this, you should test its pH level using a water pH test kit sold at pet stores. This type of test kit is more accurate than the traditional pH test strip. Most health water experts agree that water with a pH of slightly above 7.0 is healthy to drink.
Besides adding minerals to drinking water, you may also want to structure the water using a Natural Action Technologies structured water unit. Structured water is healthier than tap water because its molecules are more active, making it more energetically alive, fresh, and vibrant.
If you are interested in a portable activated alumina water purification system, I recommend the Royal Berkey water filtration system with the extra PF-2 fluoride filters. A great place to purchase Berkey water filtration systems is at this online store.
I do not recommend buying cheap water filters from your local retail stores. These filters do a poor job of removing water contaminants, especially sodium fluoride. Bottled water and filtered water sold at local stores are also not as pure as they should be, unless they are filtered using reverse osmosis technology or a multi-stage water filtration system that can remove sodium fluoride.
What makes bottled water not healthy is that chlorine is usually added to the water after it is purified. In addition, the chemical called phthalates found in plastic containers can leak into the water. High doses of phthalates have been known to disrupt hormones in rodents, causing damages to certain organs and birth defects.
The short video below shows visual evidence of how toxic fluorosilicic (hydrofluorosilicic) acid is. This acid is so strong that it can eat through concrete. Because it is so corrosive, the cleanup crew has to wear bio-hazard suits to clean it up.
