The Toxicity of Hexafluorosilicic acid
- Development toxicity
- Toxicity to animals
- Teratogenic effects
- Chronic long term effects on humans

- Mutagenic effects
Hexafluoorosilicic acid is listed on page 24 of this document. EC number: 241-034-8: CAS number16961-83-4
Where information was not provided the substance could no longer be used as active substance to be sold or marketed as a biocidal product within the EU market.
Despite this the Health Authority in Ireland continues to source Hexafluorosilicic acid from Spain for injection into public drinking water supplies to be consumed by the public at large.
Concerns Highlighted yet Ignored
U.S National Academy of Sciences, National Research Council
The U.S National Academy of Sciences, National Research Council highlighted that the toxicological profile of Hexafluorosilicic acid was largely unknown in their report “Fluoride in Drinking Water...A Scientific Review of EPA’s Standards” published in 2006.
In the interest of public safety the NRC listed in excess of fifty comprehensive epidemiological, toxicological, clinical medicine, and environmental exposure assessments requiring detailed investigation.
U.S Environmental Protection Agency
In light of these facts it is astonishing to observe, in the absence of any toxicological or health risk data, that the Health Authority in Ireland (as well as other fluoridated countries) continue to advise that the chemical is safe for consumers or the environment without any proof to support such a claim.
