What's this all about???
You may be wondering, "Clean Water Raleigh? Doesn't Raleigh already HAVE clean water??"
Please allow me to explain...
CLEAN WATER, by definition, must be free of toxicants, pollutants, or other contaminants which may cause health problems.
FACT: Since 1956, the city of Raleigh has been adding fluoride to its municipal water supply.1
FACT: Fluoride is classified as a neurotoxicant2 significantly associated with a variety of serious health problems, including Alzheimer’s, arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, and thyroid disease.3
FACT: The fluoride used by the city of Raleigh is NOT pharmaceutical grade; it is sourced from hydrofluorosilicic acid (HFSA), which is a waste by-product of the aluminum and phosphate mining industries.4 The HFSA slurry often contains arsenic, a known neurotoxin and carcinogen.5
FACT: Fluoride, in the presence of chloramines, causes lead to leach from pipes into the water supply.6 Raleigh uses chloramines to disinfect its water.7
