Fluoride spill at water facility burns through parking lot cement



Fluoride spill at water facility burns through parking lot cement

To fully understand the destructive power of a substance, sometimes a strong visual is the best way to proceed. A spill of a highly corrosive chemical, Hydrofluorosilicic acid, at a water facility in Illinois literally burned through the concrete. Interesting fact: this chemical is directly added to drinking water as fluoride. Another interesting fact: adding fluoride to drinking water is totally and completely unnecessary.  Why is it there? To prevent “tooth decay” (it was however proven ineffective by numerous studies, mainly because the fluoride in water is ingested and not directly applied on teeth). What about brain decay? Fluoride actually accelerates it. Well, that’s what the dumbing-down of society is all about.


Here’s an article on the spill from Natural News.

A recent chemical spill at a water treatment facility in Rock Island, Ill., required the assistance of an emergency relief crew decked in the very same type of hazmat suits being worn by workers at the Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear plant in Japan. Except instead of radiation, the leaked chemical at the water plant was actually hydrofluorosilicic acid, a chemical fluoride component commonly added to drinking supplies for the stated purpose of preventing cavities. This fluoride chemical is so hazardous that it actually began to burn through parking lot cement in Rock Island before emergency crews arrived on the scene.

According to reports from WQAD News 8 in Moline, a tanker truck delivering the fluoride began to overflow, leaking the chemical directly onto the parking lot where it spilled down towards the street. And before emergency crews arrived on the scene in full hazmat suits and gas masks, the fluoride had actually begun to burn a hole right through the concrete.

“It’s a corrosive agent that the water treatment plant uses,” said Rock Island assistant fire chief Jeff Yerkey, concerning the spilled fluoride. He explained that the crews had to use earthen berms, dirt, sand, and commercial broom equipment to stop the leak. Yerkey also added that there was no “inhalation hazard” from the incident, and no evacuation of local residents was required.

What is truly amazing about the incident is that this very same fluoride, which fire chief Yerkey specifically called a “corrosive agent,” is deliberately added to drinking water supplies across the nation. This highly-toxic chemical that, when spilled, requires similar protective equipment as does a radioactive fallout situation, is being added to millions of Americans drinking water supplies every single day in the name of promoting health.

In reality, the events surrounding this fluoride spill are more than enough proof for any rationally-minded person that adding this poison to water supplies is a bad idea. Anything that requires the use of a protective suit and gas mask in order to handle — and that burns a hole directly through concrete — simply cannot be good for the body when ingested.

come on guys, if we dont get our daily doze of fluoride wont we would not be reading vc but be out on the street protesting? hhmmmm

Soooo, no one noticed the chemtrails all over the sky, in that pic.


First thing I noticed!


Hey vigilant, you are usually right about the things you say, in general I agree with you. And I don't dare to disagree that fluoride is a bad thing to our health and that it poisons the brain and dumbs us down. You must be right about that. But not about the tooth decay. It is known that fluorine is effective, indeed. I can say, as a dentist, that systemic fluorine is good for the teeth. Not as much as when it's diretcly applied and not so much that it's worth all the risks. The thing is that it makes the teeth less vulnerable to corrosion, it reduces dissolution pH to 4,5 when it's usually 5,5. It's also known that bacteria produce acid that can corrode enamel from teeth. The point in the systemic use of it, as in many other medicines, is that your body keeps releasing it so it prevents tooth decay. Many poor children in many places of the world can't go to a dentist to apply some local fluorine in order to prevent decay. It's not a lie that it is effective. The thing is that this might be just an excuse to intoxicate our bodies… Read more »

The only thing you can take to get the fluoride, bromine, and chlorine out of your body and brain is iodine. Two years ago, the only conspiracy I truly believed in was the dumbing down of america with fluoride… not just from adding it to water supplies, but because they've turned it into a pesticide and they've taken all of the iodine our of our diets…. for instance, flour used to be conditioned with iodine.. one slice, and you'd had the 16 mg you need in a day… but now, they use bromine and that's a super poison that is in almost in everything around us: like the chairs you are sitting or the curtains hanging near you because they also use it as a fire retardant… but bromine is soooo much worse the fluoride. it causes depression and shows up like cysts in your breast tissues…and it blocks your pineal gland. These days, instead of the 16 mg you need to have a healthy thyroid, you need 50 mg to push the crap out of your body… Now, people are incredibly deficient and have all sorts of fibromyalgia and hyperthyroid disorder. but be cautious when you begin to detox… Read more »


Thank you for sharing this highly disturbing yet informative video.


Just checked the label on the bottle of Costco's Kirkland purified water I've been drink. This is what its says.

Processed by Advanced Filtration, Ozone and Reverse Osmosis Technologies.

Phew guess I'll be sticking to Kirkland brand plus its cheaper.


I live in Gothenburg, Sweden but i have know idea if they put fluoride in water.

I guess they do.


Let's go to DC and protest the floride in water until they fix it. Make a big deal about it tshirts stickers signs ect. Maybe nothing will happen but if that's the case we can shout about it and make it real uncofortable for them.


The board of the Santa Clara Valley Water District (in California) held a public meeting March 22nd on water fluoridation. This summer they are scheduled to vote on whether or not to fluoridate the water supply. The board and their staff were given 20 copies of a 75-minute cd of doctors explaining the history, origin, and health hazards of this toxic waste. Doctors included John Lee, John Yiamouyannis, and Phyllis Mullenix. The audio is posted at the website Just go to the bottom of the homepage.

If people were to burn a cd of that audio and spread it around (especially to churches, schools, health food stores and health clubs) you might find it very effective in waking up the public in your area. Good luck.


Does boiling water remove fluoride?? :S


Weleda toothpaste has no fluoride at all, it tastes good to : ) Here's a link to the toothpaste. And if you want something that is a SUPERB tooth whitener, try their Fennel toothpaste.……… Most of the mineral waters do, and in fact I haven't found one that doesn't. The safest bottled waters are the ones that come from glaciers. Even if they do have trace amounts of fluoride naturally, it's negligible. You must understand that fluoride is a mineral we need in TRACE amounts, but the fluoride ADDED to toothpaste and water is a toxic form and that is the main problem with it. Nazis put this same fluoride (usually a toxic byproduct of the aluminum industry) in the water in the concentration camps to make the prisoners more docile. Prozac is mainly this type of fluoride. It's one of the primary causes of bone loss. So Weleda & the Toms of Maine toothpastes are ideal, and as for bottled water there is "Glacieau" and "Fiji" as far as I know that are fluoride free. Toothpaste Almost all toothpaste contains chemicals. One of the most common chemical found in toothpaste is fluoride; it’s quite hard to… Read more »


Whatt! Is this why they tell you to drink 8 glasses of water a day? Omgg i actually started doing that thinking i was doing the right thing i am glad i have come to this website and been educated. Thanks very much i will no longer be a foolish sheep!


there's no toxic substances, there's only concentrations of substances that is toxic.


Something in the water? Posted on February 19, 2011 by Unrest and protest against the authorities… no, I’m not talking about North Africa and the Arabian Penninsula, the news story that you may not have picked up on recently is that campaigners in Southhampton have failed to stop the South Central Strategic Health Authority from fluoridating the water of 195,000 people, NutriVital have reported. Debates are arising around it’s undemocratic nature, and questions about dosing control… but what health concerns should we be aware of? 1. 90% of fluoridating is done using hydrofluoric acid. It is undisputed that consumption results in a coloured mottling of the teeth, called fluorosis, which is often presented as a purely cosmetic side effect by it’s promoters, however critics raise that this is a clear indication of damage to the bone. 50% of the fluoride that you consume in your lifetime settles in your bones, and is thought to disrupt the delicate balance of the tissue renewal cycle. 2. It has also been argued that fluoride changes the shape of human enzymes, appearing to be foreign cells, causing our body to attack. This process is called autoimmune situation, and is thought to be at the… Read more »

Little off subject, but we're discussing poisoning, intentional or not… just read article about record snow fall, and snowpack in the Sierra Mountains in California, record snowmelt/runoff expected ….any thoughts as to whether Japan's radioactive fallout might ultimately affect the total water supply throughout California & Nevada drinking water, agricultural, and lawn irrigation systems?


It is time to pull an Erin Brockovich on it people. I totally agree to find solutions like alternatives and such, I do the same thing…but I think if we all start uniting, maybe some real change can be made. We should go to the source of the problem and fight from there. (And by fight I mean not rioting in the streets like the mob for them to have yet another excuse to force a martial law)…. I mean by spreading the word like wildfire with all our friends and family, placing it on the social networks like Facebook, Myspace (how many of us have accounts with at least 30, 50 or more "friends"), calling the water companies, writing to them….over and over and over if necessary. Let's use our talents against them. If you VC fans (Im one of em 🙂 have blogs, use your writing skills about if you haven't yet, for people at school write about it in research papers or start debate topics about it, put it out there any way you can think of. I'm a graphic designer, I planning to make some designs for a anti fluoride logo, I don't care if one… Read more »


Nice post VC!

Oh, this is kinda' off topic but is it weird if your school has a plaque with the freemason sign on it?


call me crazy but doesn't lemon juice in high enough concentrations do the same thing? everything thats highly concentrated is dangerous


hmmm, never heard anyone refer to lemon juice as a hazmat before though…

Yo wats up with the pic… with the nazi sign on the fluoride container????


Well, if you weren't clued in by the large skull in the water, the chem trails in the sky and the water tower that said, "Docileville"… its a not-so-subtle reference to the nefarious intentions of putting poisonous chemicals into a water supply.

The Nazi sign is there because 'Dee' knows: The first occurrence of fluoridated drinking water on Earth was found in Nazi prison camps. TONS of info/articles on this, here is just one.
This practice was then brought to America in 1945 via "Operation Paperclip". It is 'by design'….

Young Black Male

thanks… i heard bout something like that, but wasn't for sure.

Smarty pants

Well it is a 'deesillustration' as stated on the left corner other words, not a real pic but an artist's conception…

What I would really like is that VC does an article on how the European Union secretly raised the 'harmless' level of nuclear contaminated food… 🙁

Really there is nowhere to go…


"They" say that only two-thirds of Americas public drinking water is fluoridated, to find out if your local water company is deliberately dumbing you down, you can check this database provided by the CDC. Fluoride is hidden in a lot of products that you normally wouldn't consider such as: soda, cigarettes, cereal, salt, juice, tea, beer, processed soups, canned fish, pesticides (which means your fruits and vegetables contain fluoride as well) anaesthetics, infant formula, prescription drugs, mechanically deboned chicken (ie. chicken nuggets) wine, and of course toothpaste. Since fluoride is a cumulative neurotoxin; any fluoride you ingest over the course of your lifetime remains in your body, constantly building up and contributing to a host of problems such as lowered IQ, dental fluorosis, Alzheimer’s disease, mental retardation in children, skeletal fluorosis, and cancer. Fluoride also decreases the activity of the thyroid, resulting in an underactive thyroid, which is a common cause of obesity. However, these ailments inflicted on our physical bodies through the consumption of fluoride pales in comparison to the effects that fluoride consumption has on our spiritual bodies. As I said before, fluoride is a cumulative toxin, with 60 to 90% of the fluoride we ingest remaining… Read more »

🙂 Awesome!!! I was just about to post on this very thing but figured I had better scroll down all the way first, and here you are!! Couldn't say it any better myself D!!!

So as usual, I'll just post a little something: – Flouride and the Pineal Gland 4 minute youtube scientific approach.… – Pineal Gland is the Third Eye from VC message boards

10 minute documentary on the pineal gland and the pine cone symbology, and why the truth and information about this knowledge have been a well-guarded secret of the priest-class for millennia.

By the way – I am so psyched to see how many of you guys are calling your water departments, writing letters, getting water filters, telling friends etc…. so proactive!!! Warms my heart for reals ~~~Sharing IS Caring!!


never saw the documentaries above but somehow I always knew they want to forcibly 'open our eye'.. We cannot see the demons unless we 'improve' our sight so everything will do: chemicals, digital and 3D video systems, hypnosis, enhanced reality devices etc. I am also sure the particle accelerator plays a role in this..

Sarah Connor

When I learned about the pineal gland, and the fact that fluoride's 'prime target' for fluorided accumulation is that gland….. is just seriously made me ponder these verses: Matt:6:22-24 The light of the body is the eye; if therefore 'thine eye be single'; thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil (horus?) thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light (illuminated?) that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness! No man can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Then came across this one just this week!!! Luke 11:34-36 The light of the body is the eye; therefore when thine eye is single, they whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy whole body is also full of darkness. Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not of darkness. If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the… Read more »
