The major toxins in your water.

Clean, pure water is one of the greatest natural resources in the world. Every metabolic function depends on the presence of water. Cities are built around abundant supplies of water. There are many industrial toxins present in our municipal water sources that must be avoided.

Water is absolutely necessary for optimizing energy production and detoxification abilities within the body. The ideal source of water is as pure and unadulterated as possible from a natural spring. Unfortunately, our water supply is loaded with toxic contaminants. Here are a few we all need to be aware of and take measures to avoid:

Arsenic: This is a powerful cancer-causing agent. In 2001, the EPA lowered the maximum level permitted in drinking water from 50 ug/L to 10 ug/L due to the well-established carcinogenic risk. The Natural Resources Defense Council estimates that as many as 56 million Americans living in 25 states drink water with unsafe arsenic levels.

Aluminum: This toxic heavy metal is linked with neurological, gastrointestinal and liver damage. Most city water has elevated levels of aluminum. Aluminum competes with calcium for skeletal absorption but does not mimic calcium’s effects in the body. High aluminum reduces skeletal mineralization. It also retards the absorption of phosphorus, zinc, and selenium. Zinc and selenium are key immune system modulators. Aluminum causes deficiencies in these critical minerals and malcoordinates the immune system.

Fluoride: This halogen molecule is a highly potent free radical in the body that damages neurological tissue, injures the immune system and hampers thyroid function among many other problems. In a 2006 report by the National Research Council of The National Academies it states,
“Fluoride is an endocrine disruptor in the broad sense of altering normal endocrine function.”

Chlorine: This is used to sterilize the water and rightfully so as many infectious diseases can be attained through contaminated water. Natural springs should never be sterilized but city water absolutely should be. Unfortunately, when chlorine is not filtered out of the water and is instead consumed in tap water, it destroys the natural microflora throughout the body. This adversely affects natural immunity and dramatically increases the risk for immune disorders and cancer.

One of the most dangerous forms of chlorine includes chlorine vapors and chloroform gas. The FDA and other US government agencies have reported that most homes in the U.S. have measurable levels of chloroform gas. This seeps out of toilet bowls, dishwashers, showers, etc. These vapors dramatically increase the risk of asthma, airway inflammation and respiratory allergies. Chloroform gas is known to cause acute dizziness, nausea and fatigue.

    Not to mention mercury, which has gone up the chimneys of coal, cement and other plants and accumulated in virtually every freshwater lake in the U.S. at such high levels states have had to put out fish consumption advisories.
