Following earlier work on the relevance of silica (SiO2) and fluoride (F) to the biotoxicity of aluminum (Al), it is shown that relatively high risks of a measure of mental impairment are frequently associated with relatively low SiO2 and F in the drinking water available in different parts of Ontario. Also, because of a negative association between SiO2 and F concentrations in the treated water available in different municipalities, a low SiO2 concentration can account for the observed… CONTINUE READING
