Fluorosilicic acid is a water-based solution used by most water fluoridation programs in the United States. Fluorosilicic acid is also referred to as hydrofluorosilicate, FSA, or HFS. Fluoride is a severe biological poison. Being intensely negative, it unlatches positive hydrogen bonds in enzymes and proteins. Most states add at least 1 ppm of sodium fluoride or fluorosilic acid (radioactive toxic waste that contains fluoride) to the water supply, even though it has been proven that at least 113 medical side effects from cancer to headaches are caused by fluoride in the water.

CuZn uses an Activated Alumina Fluoride water filter to filter out fluoride. Activated alumina is manufactured from aluminum hydroxide by dehydroxylating it in a way that produces a highly porous material; this material can have a surface area significantly over 200 square meters/g. The compound is used as a filter of fluoride, arsenic and selenium in drinking water. It is made of aluminum oxide (alumina; Al2O3), the same chemical substance as sapphire and rubies (but without the impurities that give those gems their color). It has a very high surface-area-to-weight ratio, which means it has a lot of very small pores, almost like tunnels, that run throughout it to absorb fluoride. Activated alumina filters can easily reduce fluoride levels from .5 ppm to less than .1 ppm. Activated Alumina is one of the best water filter that filters out fluoride.
But CuZn water filtration products don't stop there. The CuZn Double Cartridge Fluoride Water Filter includes a combination of trace minerals (copper and zinc in the patented form of KDF, which meets NSF standards 42 and 61) and coconut shell carbon, the CuZn Refillable Countertop water filter removes more than 600 contaminants from water, including chlorine, lead, heavy metals, trihalomethanes (THMs), herbicides and pesticides much the same as Nature uses the earth and its minerals to cleanse water. (Unlike carbon-only filters, bacteria can't grow inside the bacteriostatic CuZn filters!)
The CuZn Refillable Countertop Double Cartridge Fluoride Water Filter is also excellent in situations where sulfur and iron are present and a CuZn Whole House system is not feasible. Sulfur and iron expends the media more quickly than other contaminants, so refilling the system is economical and environmentally responsible.
