    • 2004 August 8, Mike Adams, “Fluoride conference reveals fraudulent science behind mass fluoridation; fluoride policy is a public fraud”, naturalnews.com, accessed on 2013-09-06:
      Fluorosilicic acid is not fluoride, it is something very different, and it strikes me as downright bizarre that it is perfectly legal to dump this toxic waste product into the rivers and streams of America as long as it passes through the bodies of human beings first. In other words, it's illegal to take a bucket of fluorosilicic acid and dump it into a stream, but it is perfectly legal to dump it into the bodies of human beings, whose waste products will subsequently enter those same streams and rivers.
  2. (chemistry) A binary compound of fluorine and another element or radical.
