Medical Information that may affect your life
The following are short extracts from excellent reports and books published by a variety of organizations, officials, doctors and research scientists on the dangers in our drinking water supplies. These publications are available through bookstores, libraries or the author themselves.
"It is estimated that 50% to 90% of all human tumors are environmentally induced. For years water pollution levels have been on the rise, and yet only recently, as pollution levels have reached record highs has the public outcry become louder". WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION
"Putting chlorine in the water supplies is like starting a time bomb. Cancer, heart trouble, premature senility; both mental and physical, are conditions attributable to chlorine-treated water supplies. It is making us grow old before our time by producing symptoms of aging such as hardening of the arteries." DR. HERBERT SCHWARTS, BIOLOGICAL CHEMIST
"Many carcinogenic agents take twenty to thirty years before the effects show up and then it is too late." HEALTHY WATER FOR A LONGER LIFE - MARTIN FOX, PH.D
"chlorine is the greatest crippler and killer of modern times. It is an insidious poison. Most medical researchers were led to believe it was safe, but now we are learning the hard way that all the time we thought we were preventing epidemics of one disease, we were creating another. Two decades after the start of chlorinating our drinking water, , the present epidemic of heart trouble and cancer began. In the process of atherogenesis, chlorine is the essential agent." CORONARIES/CHOLESTEROL/CHLORINE - DR. JOSEPH M. PRICE
"If chlorine were now proposed for the first time to be used in drinking water, it would be banned." EVERYTHING YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT DRINKING WATER - K.W. DONSBACH
"The factors [minerals in water] either protect you from toxic properties and/or give you nutrients in a form that your body can accept and are significant in maintaining good health . . . using distillation and reverse osmosis creates artificially soft water and may also bring higher death rates." HEALTHY WATER FOR LONGER LIFE -
Alzheimer's and Aluminum. For years, researchers have puzzled over the surprisingly high levels of aluminum that turn up in the shriveled brains of Alzheimer's disease victims. While some scientists believe that the aluminum deposits are only a side effect of Alzheimer's, a growing number of investigators say that aluminum may play a central role in causing the disease that afflicts mostly elderly people. The latest evidence of a link emerged when Australian scientists reported that aluminum used to purify water accumulated in the brains of laboratory rats. The Australian study focused new interest on the issue at a time when Ottawas environmental health directorate is preparing to propose Canada's first national guidelines for aluminum levels in drinking water. The Australian study was important, said the directorate's chief: DR BARRY THOMAS
Lead and Learning. "We see decreased intelligence, hearing problems and smaller stature as a result of lead exposure." Even moderate levels of exposure can interfere with the ability to pay attention and may play an important role in learning disorders and antisocial behavior".DR SUE BINDER, chief of the lead poisoning branch at the Centers of Disease Control in Atlanta, Georgia,
Beaver Fever, Giardia, Cryptosporidium. These organic sporozoans, first described in 1907, were not recognized as a cause of human illness until 1976. Dispatch#60 Health and Welfare Canada
The problem with lead is compounded by the fact that our senses cannot detect the lead levels commonly found in drinking water. You can't smell, taste, or see the lead. An "action" threshold level of 15 parts per billion (ppb) has been established by the EPA.
"There is increased evidence for an association between rectal, colon and bladder cancer and the consumption of chlorinated drinking water", this according to the President's Council on Environmental Quality.
Since asbestos exposure is cumulative, young people are in particular need of protection. "Adults have three or four decades to develop cancer after exposure". Mount Sinai's Dr. Landrigan
Although giardiasis (Beaver Fever) probably receives the least amount of publicity, the organism that causes it, giardia lambia, is one of the most insidious pests in water supplies. According to an article in Opflow, a publication of the American Water Works Association, "it is the most common disease causing intestinal parasite in the United States."
Speaking at the annual meeting of The Gold & Silver Institutes in Laguna, Niguel, CA. Eaton said, "Progressively restrictive legislation is confronting the use of chemicals, especially chlorine, which for nearly a century has been the primary medium for water disinfectants increasing pollution, utilities are forced to put far more chlorine into the supply chain." Eaton explained, " The chemical reaction that oxidizes impurities when chlorine is added, also forms carcinogenic byproducts. Of course these same byproducts have been generated by chlorination for a long time but never in the quantities that are now being seen". David Eaton, secretary of The Institute of Water Ionization Technologies in the United Kingdom and technical director of Roseland Hydronics PLC.
If a man is taking over the counter drugs or prescription drugs that contain
chlorine and 85 of them do. Now take into account the chlorinated tap water,
boiled or not. Now he will soon have erection and prostate problems. Then we may
have the start of cancer later. How do I know this and can I prove it? NO.
But I have been there and now live a chlorine free, chemical free, organic as
much as I can. Loving every moment because I have all my parts working again, without pills.
