For decades Mosaic has been selling cheap fluoridation chemicals to public drinking water systems across the U.S. Crescent City was smart enough to vote in a moratorium in 2012 to stop over 44 years of fluoridation chemicals in our public water when their supplier would not provide vital information relating to the safety of their product, “fluorosilicic acid,” which contained arsenic, lead, cadmium, uranium and radium.
Three weeks ago, Mosaic finally disclosed that their Florida facility had a sinkhole 45 feet in diameter filling up with “slightly radioactive water.” The sinkhole reached Florida’s aquifer which then extends from central Florida to Georgia potentially affecting the well water of home and property owners.
Last year, 2015, Mosaic was fined $2 billion for gross violations when 60 billions pounds of hazardous waste was found to be leaking into rivers and groundwater and causing huge fish kills and other problems.
This time their phosphate fertilizer facility in Florida has the concerns of citizens because it too, through the sinkhole, released uranium, radium and radon gas which could affect their health.
In 2012, it was uncovered that one of the companies Crescent City’s retirement funds are invested in is Mosaic. Mosaic’s shares recently decreased by 1.7 percent.
