Mount Crosby Pipeline Painting Project –

Brisbane Queensland – 2018

It is commendable that the maintenance of this vital infrastructure is underway,
however the corrosion INSIDE these pipes and the over seven thousand
kilometres of water mains in South East Queensland can be
reduced as soon as water fluoridation is stopped.

Thousands of kilometres of asbestos
water pipes are still in service in Queensland.

Corrosion by fluoride ⇓

It is of some concern to us that many kilometres of  asbestos cement water pipe  are being damaged by
fluoride and releasing ASBESTOS into the drinking water. 

.Not healthy for your intestinal tract – increased risk of developing benign intestinal polyps.

The asbestos-cement mixture that drinking water pipes are made from releases asbestos fibres when subjected to vibration as well as to the friction flow of water and the corrosive action of fluorides and chlorine.

.

Another study looked at over 700 workers at lighthouses in Norway who served as keepers at any point between 1917 and 1967.
A subset of those workers had consumed asbestos-contaminated water.
This group was at a significantly increased risk of developing digestive cancers, with the greatest risk specifically for stomach cancer.

.

Asbestos fibres are distributed in household air from
drying laundry washed in asbestos contaminated water…

Asbestos water pipes need to be safely replaced as soon as possible.
We hope the Sydney 2018 Conference will cover asbestos in water.
