Nitrates in our Water At Dangerous Levels💦

As you know I am an advocate of  humans drinking the purest water that is available to us in all walks of life. We can of course with the right equipment. We can blame our illnesses on many things, like we do,  such as Roundup, nitrates, fluoride, Stress and just breathing but I don’t believe we can nail just one of these poisons that causes cancer or any other illness. I think its all of them because you will find them in our drinking water.

So it does not matter how healthy you eat , if your drinking water is contaminated with this stuff then you are wasting your time and money.

This is an interesting story about nitrates in our water that was published on the Fox News.

Millions of tons of nitrate from industrial farming find their way into America’s drinking water each year, causing thousands of cases of cancer and other health problems

In a new report, researchers from the Environmental Working Group (EWG) quantify the risk. They say nitrate is responsible for nearly 12,600 cases of cancer a year.

(That is true as I lived many years in a cane growing area in Australia so I saw for myself the amount of bags and bags of fertilizer  put into the soil and spraying of crops over those years. In fact I always used to say that it was not soil the sugar was growing in, it was just fertilizer. Consequently I noted also over the years how many children were born with deformities, health problems and terminal illnesses in their latter years. )

“Industrialized farming relies heavily on nitrate fertilizers that can run off into the water table used by drinking water utilities,” said Sydney Evans, a science analyst at EWG.

The report said 80% of the nitrate-related cancers were colorectal, with ovarian, thyroid, kidney and bladder cancer accounting for the rest. Treatment costs up to $1.5 billion a year, according to the report.

Nitrate is hard and costly to filter out of water.  Some towns and cities, however, do remove it and pass along the cost to residents.

Private wells can also have high nitrate levels. People who rely on well water have to spend thousands of dollars to add reverse osmosis systems if they want to remove nitrate.

(Now on saying this If you have a Kangen Water machine you understand it is primarily a water Ionizer. It also filters out chlorine, fluoride, lead and most other common type contaminants. To filter out the likes of nitrates etc,  you need a pre filter for the machine. It is not expensive but recommended if you find you have a high count of nitrates in your water or any of the following poisons in your water. If you have not got a Kangen Water machine then for the health of your family I suggest you get one. )

 

 

ULTRA E PRE FILTER SET

The Ultra-E Submicron Depth Filtration Series is manufactured using a proprietary, patented, electro-absorptive media technology, and is capable of removing submicron pathogens and inorganic contaminants through electro-adhesion and ion exchange.

This technology makes it possible for a nonwoven media to product filtration efficiency comparable to ultramembrane filtration but at very low pressure drop, with high flow rates and high loading capacity working equally well in fresh, brackish or salt waters.

The media in the Ultra-E filter is NSF 61-approved.

Filter will pass up to 1500 gallons of water

Comes with Filter and Housing

 

The ULTRA-E filter reduces, or removes the following pathogens:
>99.99% of viruses (pollo, rotavirus, norovirus, etc.)**
>99.99% of bacteria ( e coli, legionella, pseudomonas, etc.)**
>99.95% of cysts (giardia, cryptosporidium, etc.)**
** Tested by a certified laboratory in the U.S. (testing was done at 6.5pH)

The Ultra-E filter removes or reduces the following heavy metals:
>95% Lead **
>90% Ferrous Iron **
>95% Arsenic V **
>95% Cadmium **
>85% Chromium **
>75% Selenium **
>60% Mercury
** Tested by a certified laboratory in the U.S. (testing was done at 6.5pH)

The ULTRA-E filter removes, or reduces the following organic and inorganic chemicals:
VOCs (volatile organic compounds)
PCBs and BPA
Residual pharmaceuticals
Bio-fouling precursors: organic acids, proteins, polysaccharides

Did You Know – 01/03/2017

First Did You Know for the Year

  1. Bruce Springsteen said he  is afraid of the Trump Presidency,  he also said when President Reagan was elected that he was very afraid. I guess he is a very afraid Democrat. (He has got nothing to be afraid of.)

2. A rigorously done new study shows that those with the highest sugar intake had a four-fold increase in their risk of heart attacks compared to those with the lowest intakes. That’s 400 percent! Just one 20-ounce soda increases your risk of a heart attack by about 30 percent.

 

3. If you see this label

a.  A four-digit code beginning with a 3 or a 4 means the produce is probably conventionally grown. The last digits of the code represent the kind of the fruit or vegetable you are buying. For example, bananas are always labeled with the code of 4011.

b.  If there are five numbers, and the first is “8″, then the product is genetically modified. The label on genetically modified banana (GE-genetically engineered of GMO) would contain the numbers 84011.

c.  A five-digit number that starts with a 9 means the item is organic. Organic bananas are labeled with 94011.

EWG ( The Environmental Working Group) analyzed pesticide residue testing data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Food and Drug Administration to come up with rankings for these popular fresh produce items.
The Environmental Protection Agency warns that the consumption of pesticides can lead to health problems such as “birth defects, nerve damage, cancer, and other effects that might occur over a long period of time.” Children are especially at risk of harm from pesticides.
