  •  It's not industrial waste (0+ / 0-)

    It's a byproduct of phosphate ore processing.  Many useful products are byproducts of processing another material.

    Before you start throwing around inaccurate information about whether something is "industrial waste," perhaps you should educate yourself about what the definition of solid waste is.  

    •  Perfectly harmless (0+ / 0-)
      Potential Acute Health Effects:
      Hazardous in case of skin contact (irritant), of eye contact (irritant, corrosive), of ingestion, of inhalation. Slightly hazardous in case of skin contact (corrosive). Severe over-exposure can result in death.
      Potential Chronic Health Effects:
      CARCINOGENIC EFFECTS: A4 (Not classifiable for human or animal.) by ACGIH, 3 (Not classifiable for human.) by IARC. MUTAGENIC EFFECTS: Mutagenic for mammalian somatic cells. Mutagenic for bacteria and/or yeast. TERATOGENIC EFFECTS: Not available. DEVELOPMENTAL TOXICITY: Not available. The substance may be toxic to kidneys, lungs,
      the nervous system, heart, gastrointestinal tract, cardiovascular system, bones, teeth. Repeated or prolonged exposure
      to the substance can produce target organs damage. Repeated exposure to a highly toxic material may produce general deterioration of health by an accumulation in one or many human organs.

        humor me by pointing to where I stated fluoride exposure, especially at the high concentrations associated with the effects you've pulled from an MSDS, is "perfectly harmless."

        One of your characteristics appears to be insinuating that people write something other than what they've actually written.  It's not a positive characteristic and it reflects poorly on your character.
