Fluoride Free Anniston is a grassroots organization, of concerned citizens from all walks of life united behind the goal of eliminating the dangerous and costly practice of adding ‘hydrofluorosilicic acid’ to the water supply in the name of public health.
We are continuingly trying to inform people of the FACTS regarding this absurdity. Please do not be misled by the propaganda.
At Fluoride Free Anniston, we really care about our health and the health of our children, neighbors and visitors to this community.
ANNISTON WATER WORKS AND SEWER BOARD
Does not want you to know the truth about the chemicals added to your drinking water!
Profit from deals with the polluting industries? Embarrassment?
Even local attorneys have taken their side in order to further harm the population!
A chemical added to Anniston’s tap water is HYDROFLUOROSILICIC ACID. It is derived from the industrial waste by-products of phosphate fertilizer and aluminum factories. It contains a percentage of 'fluoride' which recent studies have shown to cause health problems. It is NOT pharmaceutical grade, NOT natural, it is NOT approved by the FDA, and we are NOT being properly warned of its dangers.
Poison, in ANY amount is still POISON!
For over 50 years we have been told that we must ingest fluoride in order to maintain healthy teeth. The truth is swallowing this substance is as effective as swallowing sunscreen to prevent sunburn!

Originally, the fluoride used to fluoridate water supplies came from the aluminum and atomic bomb industries. A couple of years later, they switched to an even more hazardous waste product: hydrofluorosilicic acid from the phosphate fertilizer industry.
This hydrofluorosilicic acid also typically contains arsenic, lead, cadmium, and mercury, plus a variety of other contaminants that are part of the phosphate ore, and, shockingly, it does not have to be refined or filtered prior to being shipped and dumped into municipal water supplies.
Studies on the health effects and safety of fluoride have always used pharmaceutical grade fluoride—not the far more toxic hydrofluorosilicic acid from the phosphate fertilizer industry. In the last two years, only TWO studies have finally dealt with the continued use of hydrofluorosilicic acid, and found it increases lead accumulation in blood up to seven times. It also increases lead absorption in bone, teeth and other calcium-rich tissues.
