A confluence of toxins; what is in OUR Drinking Water?

Over the past 20 years, in the United States there have been dramatic increases in the occurrence of autism and certain forms of cancer; the cause for this increase is unknown.

With over 85,000 chemicals in use today, man-made toxins have spread throughout the environment affecting air and water quality like never before. The vast majority of these chemicals have unknown effects upon our health. Many contaminants found in drinking water (tap or bottled) across the nation have been linked to numerous forms of cancer, developmental effects, learning disabilities, parasitic infections, and intestinal illnesses.

Safe drinking water is of utmost importance for children, infants, and unborn fetuses; they are especially sensitive to chemicals that are often found in public water. Water is the fundamental nutrient in your body and water quality is critical for every bodily function, even down to the cellular level.

Your body is about 70% water and your body replaces most of that water every week! The purity of water that your family consumes can directly affect their health, longevity and happiness. An extensive study published in July 2000 by the New England Journal of Medicine indicates that the environment has the principal role in causing cancer.

The results published by the European Journal of Cancer in September 2001 show that cancer prevention programs that targeted environmental causes (such as air and water treatment systems) are much more effective than current advances in cancer treatment in reducing deaths from cancer.

According to the National Academy of Sciences, arsenic in drinking water causes bladder, lung and skin cancer, and may cause kidney and liver cancer. The study also found that arsenic harms the central and peripheral nervous systems, as well as heart and blood vessels, and causes serious skin problems. It also may cause birth defects and reproductive problems.
