Nitrates in our Water At Dangerous Levelsđź’¦

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

Troubling Water – Life or Deathđź’¦

 

Water is the driving force of all nature – Leonardi Da Vinciđź’¦

There was an article in my favorite health magazine called ‘Nature and Health’.

The article started off with a question “Is your water an elixir or a dangerous drink” and I believe that to be an important question.

I sadly have to say there is a number of friends and acquaintances around me that have the dreaded disease cancer. My first question as anyone who knows me is are you drinking enough water. 9 times out of 10 they will say “probably not” or yes I drink at least 4 or 5 glasses a day. Sorry not enough. If your body is not flushing your toxins from your body then your body holds on to them. That is not good when you have such a destructive disease running around your body.

Tap water

Aluminum, sulfate, ammonia, chlorine, hydrofluorosilicic acid, polyacrylamide, rust, slime, algae, asbestos, detergents, petrol, pesticides, pharmaceutical medications, faecal matter, herbicides, arsenic, cadmium, chromium, chloroform, copper, mercury, nitrates, cryptosporidium, Guardia, viruses, bacteria, blue-green algae.

Yep most and more  chemicals will be found in your  tap water. No Kidding. So many chemicals I can’t even pronounce their name.

In fact Western Australia Water Corporation recommends that babies under three months do not consume their water due to high nitrate content.

The ABC confirmed that PFAs (polufluoroalkyl chemicals) have not been banned in Australia. This is used to create non stick cookware and fire fighting foam. This chemical has been found in over 70 sites in Australia and as far as they know. Over 6 million Americans are drinking water that contains PFAs above the EPA after level.

This chemical is linked to immune system suppression, cancer, brain damage, nervous system damage, fertility problems and hormone disruption.

Look I could go on and on but you need to read this article for yourself it is very enlightening and I think you really need to think twice about what you are drinking.

Bottled Water

Every minute a million bottles of water are bought world-wide.

Not only is that an environmental nightmare most bottled water does not match the labels and 93% of samples analyzed showed micro plastic contamination researched by Natural resources defense council 

Some of the contaminates in bottled water is phthalates, mould, microbes, benzene, trihalomethane and arsenic .

Brita water filters are ok especially if you are unable to carry your own water on flights. Its better than nothing but does not remove the chemicals completely.

This is where I am putting a word in about the Kangen Water it really is the best you can buy. 40-year-old company and a product that is unsurpassable.

It is medically registered water restructuring system and as they say Gold Standard pure water. Kangen filters remove all the impurities and then alkalize the water plus give it negative charge so it can pass through our positively – charged cellular aquaporin and make the water molecules minuscule for  ultimate absorption. Great for hydration and optimizing nutrient assimilation and eliminating toxins.

Cancers cannot survive in an alkaline environment and Kangen water is considered an anti cancer aid.

Wether or not you consider this machine it is up to you but I have made you aware of what you are drinking in your tap and bottled water and urge you for your health and the health of your family and the environment to consider this machine. I own two, one in the States and one in Australia and they are worth every cent.
