SCIENTISTS DISCOVER NEW TECHNIQUE TO REMOVE FLUORIDE FROM DRINKING WATER

(Andrew Puhanic)   Around the world, it is estimated that tens of millions of people are affected by both dental and skeletal fluorosis. In many cases, it is the addition of fluoride into drinking water supplies by governments that is the primary cause of both dental and skeletal fluorosis.

Common techniques used for defluoridation are coagulation-precipitation, membrane process and ion exchange.

The problem with these three techniques is that they are either too expensive or they further pollute the water.

Researchers from the National University of Sciences and Technology in Pakistan have discovered an effective method to remove fluoride from drinking water that is less expensive than conventional filtration processes and is safe to use.

The study, published in the Journal of Chemistry, concluded that the removal of fluoride from drinking water using modified immobilized activated alumina (MIAA) resulted in a removal efficiency that was 1.35 times higher than normal immobilized activated alumina.

Modified immobilized activated alumina (MIAA) was added to water that was tainted with fluoride and then analysis was conducted to evaluate the quantity of fluoride that was removed from the water.

It was discovered that MIAA, at 20 +/- degrees celsius has the capacity to remove more than 95% of fluoride from water. In fact, the adsorption capacity of MIAA was much higher (0.76 mg/g) when compared to the adsorption capacity of activated charcoal (0.47 mg/g) for the same concentration fluoride samples.

The adsorption method that is used by modified immobilized activated alumina (MIAA) is much more cost-effective (Ali, I., & Gupta, V. K. (2007) Advances in water treatment by adsorption technology. Nature Protocols) than the popular Reverse Osmosis Filtration method.

Considering that both MIAA and Reverse Osmosis Filtration remove more than 90% of fluoride, MIAA could be a viable alternative to removing fluoride from drinking water supplies in developing countries.

Unfortunately, there are some limitations to the use of MIAA in removing fluoride from drinking water. The greatest challenge in the use of MIAA for removing fluoride from drinking water is filtering MIAA once all fluoride has been absorbed.

However, considering that the granules produced by MIAA varied from 3 to 6 mm, all that was required during the study to remove the MIAA granules from the water was basic water filtration.

Ultimately, the primary challenge faced when trying to removing fluoride from drinking water is cost.

The use of modified immobilized activated alumina (MIAA) to remove fluoride from drinking water could become a viable option that would enable communities in both developed and developing nations to remove fluoride from drinking water.

  • I would welcome a whole-house way to remove fluoride from my water. A much better way to mitigate fluoride in our water is to not add this toxic waste into the supply in the first place. We need more activism at the local level to convince our local governments to stop adding fluoride.

  • It’s nice to see the professional scientific community looking into this flouride poison epidemic. / At this time, your best bed is to pick up a propure or berkey and use them to filter every single drop of water you consume or use for cooking. Also you can get shower filters for when you bathe in municipally supplied water.

  • Aluminum is not good for you.
    You should not use aluminum compounds in your drinking water.
    The best way to purify water is reverse osmosis. this is non-polluting

  • my opinion?

    it’s CYA time; as they are already chem-trailing us with Aluminum and Barium, viruses, bacteeria, et alii without my consent or yours; which, for myself, i do not give before or after the fact.

    the so-called "professional scientific community" is the same establishment that is involved in the chem-trailing i mentioned and double-speak of this article. more often than not they have been wrong about the phenomena around us. their religion of Lucifer/’sun worship’ and death is soon to be no more; and they are helping to hasten their own demise by their own hand.

    YH says "i will destroy them that destroy the earth".

  • ok; typos

    bacteria* not bacteeria

    and

    "which, speaking* for myself" not "which, for myself"

  • We will have an election coming up sooon in australia, we should demand this be made an election issue, along with all the other things we actually care about instead of the issues they like to hide behind

  • kay its part of the agenda21 agreement we signed
    we are considered a danger to the planet
    listen to popeyes interview concerning ag21

  • When it comes to filters, I’ve done alot of research on this and I could only find one company’s results that I could verify. It’s been really hard to find companies that are truly reputable when it comes to their fluoride removal claims. A lot of companies claim NSF accreditation, but one must be very careful about that and know exactly what the certification is for. Most of the time it does not measure how well the filter removes contaminants. Just thought I would pass on my findings as I have been researching for myself to ensure we get a quality filter that does what it claims from a reputable company. There is a small company out of New York that I found that has a filtration system (I’m referring to their under the counter ‘ultra’ version…though they have several other configurations) that removes fluoride, prescription drugs, and even radiation via Zeolite. It even raises the alkalinity of the water. They have an independent test done by a nationwide lab analysis company and I also contacted the lab personally to ensure that this company was reputable and that the lab results were not fabricated……anyhow it all checked out. The only thing that you might find is that the alkalinity of the water starts off a bit on the higher side (ph 9.3) but will settle in at about 8.0 after a month. Anyhow, I think they have an excellent filter and hope it will help in your search…good luck. Here is the link, and if you notice their customer reviews are all top notch, the best that I can find… http://www.pureeffectfilters.com/#a_aid=Ultrawater
