- Fluoride - despite the fact that there is more scientific data showing the harm Fluoride causes in the human body as opposed to supporting the claim that ingested Fluoride helps prevent tooth decay, these chemicals are added to the drinking water of many populations around the world regardless. In particular the United States is heavily fluoridated, treating the water for about 185 million people. Fluoride causes a huge range of issues in the human body, from bone fractures, to fluorosis AKA browning & weakening of the teeth, to damaging calcification of the Pineal Gland, which is meant to produce Melatonin, a hormone essential for sleep patterns, sexual development and syncing with circadian rhythms. Nearly all of the Fluoride chemicals used are waste products from petrochemical fertilizer industries including Sodium Fluoride, a rat poison, and Fluorosilicic Acid, which can burn through concrete. Fluoride being classified as "essential" not only goes against scientific literature, but ethically tramples the rights of millions who don't even realize they're being dosed outside of their knowledge and regardless of their medical status. To boot, health agencies nor the majority of doctors are keeping records of accumulation of fluoride in the body nor the long term effects of this poisoning, despite it being yet another huge experiment with us as the Guinea Pigs. Keep in mind that when you mass medicate, dosage cannot be controlled for the individual, like the elderly or the children. Here's a letter from the American Medical Association stating they aren't prepared to say that water fluoridation is safe. The CDC even carefully admitted there were toxic effects from fluoride ingestion, if only as a PR stunt to cool the sting of the growing public backlash. Are we considered a mere testing ground or a waste disposal at large? Or both?
- Chlorine - is a poison in it's isolated form, hence it's historical use in warfare. This chemical is added to water supplies as a carpet bomb for pathogenic organisms. Although such disinfection is necessary, concerns about the toxic side effects of chlorine have not been taken seriously. In plants for example, high levels of the chemical in water will cause leaf burn and usually slow tissue death. What of cumulative effects in humans? Perhaps methods of disinfection with less potential for toxic side effects should be considered.
- Birth Control - Ethinyl Estradiol, a common birth control chemical used worldwide, is difficult to break down after the user pisses it out. The chemical then finds it's way into natural waterways in wastewater causing tremendous havoc on the phenotypical gender expression of wildlife, including intersex fish & frogs, and destroying entire ecosystems. The primary excuse for avoiding filtration given is the expense, which would require some tens of billions of dollars in order to upgrade treatment plants. We have plenty of money to invade other countries though right? What happens when this chemical ends up back in our drinking water? If the pharmaceutical companies making billions hand over fist from these pills alone are ultimately responsible for these effects, should they not be held accountable?
- Artificial Sweeteners - despite the fact that these chemicals are consistently found to be extremely toxic to the human body & mind, millions still use them in order to pretend they're being healthy while still fueling their food addictions. Sucralose, Splenda, Aspartame, Acesulfame, Saccharine and Cyclamate are complex chemicals difficult to break down by the current means implemented in treatment plants. Unfortunately this means the chemicals end up in groundwater, rivers and other natural water sources since the plants dump out into them. The ultimate result is that millions of us get it in the tap without ever knowing it.
- Glyphosate & other agricultural poisons - not only are they unnecessary because better agricultural methods of mass production exist like vertical hydroponics and permaculture, but the entire idea behind a "need" for such chemicals is mythical at best. Glyphosate is the main component of Monsanto's RoundUp poison, based off of the "Agent Orange" 2,4-D used during the Vietnam War, and despite the lies from the horse's mouth regarding the chemical's safety, the reality shows that glyphosate is extremely toxic, difficult to biodegrade, and leaches into our water sources from farm runoff and air transfer. Glyphosate is meant to eradicate every living thing it touches, however many pathogens are resistant to it's effects while beneficial bacteria within soil and in the body are quite susceptible. Because of the cumulative damage of toxic agricultural chemicals, soils within farms and even in the wild are slowly losing their ability to sustain life. Oh but the FDA says it's safe right? Even though Monsanto knew their chemical caused cancer in mammals for 35 years and publicly lied to cover it up? No way there's a revolving door between corporations and government agencies right?
- Bottled Water & Plastic Water Bottles - are bad for you. Period. Plastics leach chemicals into water, especially when catalyzed by heat and light. It's known that plastic chemicals like BPA, BPS and phthalates all have hormonal effects that mimic the action of Estrogen in the body, block the production of natural Testosterone or otherwise alter the effects of hormones within the human body. Hormonal interference such as this will cause a wide variety of issues and may be a primary factor involved in the growing epidemics of low sperm counts, infertility, micro-penises at birth and feminized men. The best primer to gain a grasp on this situation comes from both Dr. Edward Group (take a listen to this comprehensive 2 hour interview with Vinny Eastwood) and Dr. Curtis Duncan (watch this powerful interview with Jan Irvin of Gnostic Media).
Repairing Water For Better Health
- BASIC - add a pinch of Pink Himalayan or Grey salt to whatever water you drink or use in cooking. Regular table salt is not healthy for consumption because of its lack of the trace minerals, being merely sodium chloride, and the more recent additions of silicon dioxide anti-caking chemicals which have a strong potential for cumulative harm in humans. You can expect to spend around $5-10/lb for these quality salts and lose no time in integrating them into your life.
- EASY - add a drop of Lugol's Iodine, like J Crow's 5% solution on Amazon, in addition to the BASIC tier. Iodine deficiency is epidemic in the Western culture because the common diet is nutritionally void. According to Dr. David Brownstein, an expert on Iodine with over 17 years of medical practice, poor Iodine levels cause an assortment of major issues in the human body including a weak immune system, broken metabolism and various thyroid anomalies. Increasing Iodine in one's diet may also help displace toxic halogens commonly found in tap water & commercial drinks, being fluoride, chlorine & bromide, which compete within the human body for Iodine's receptors. Too many of these toxic halogens will cause metabolic issues, lethargy, energy issues, thyroid diseases, brain fog, and more. Iodine is also an excellent disinfectant, historically being used to kill pathogens. Adding a few drops to whatever water you're drinking will improve it's purity. You can expect to spend $20-30 for a bottle of liquid Lugol's or Nascent Iodine (which will last around 1 or 2 months of a drop or two a day) and lose no time in application.
- MEDIUM - get an Activated Carbon-Based water filter to remove chlorine, chloramides, volatile organic compounds, radon and several other types of non-dissolved metal compounds sized as small as 0.5 microns for some higher quality filters. Though this won't remove dissolved inorganics like fluoride, arsenic, sulfates or metal-salts, it is an affordable way to eliminate half the battle. Top off this filtered water with the BASIC & EASY guidelines and you'll have the first real leap forward in water quality. You can expect to spend over $50 for a good Carbon Filter system and spend a bit of time getting it initially set up. You'll also have a small maintenance fee when you replace the used filters every few months.
- MEDIHARD - get a Reverse-Osmosis water filter to remove the majority of the dissolved inorganics that the Carbon filter couldn't. The disadvantage is that the process is very slow, depending on the speed of osmosis. Most Reverse-Osmosis filters come with a carbon filtration aspect as well to cover as many bases as possible. You'll spend at least $200 for a good system and the cartridges also have to be replaced every few months.
- DISTILLATION - boil and re-condense the water into a 100% pure form, leaving behind all of the contaminants. There are some great pre-fab units for reasonable prices or you can just build your own. Some of the DIY designs are incredibly easy. Combine this with BASIC & EASY for incredibly healthy and clean water. Buying a quality unit will cost you around $200. Building one however can range from $5 to $150 dependent on the parts used, the only major expenditure being your time invested.
- PARANOID - Reverse-Osmosis, then DISTILLATION, then follow BASIC & EASY. Though distillation alone covers your bases pretty well, the more passes of cleansing your water can be put through, the better. If you have the means and the desire, water produced in this fashion will be some of the cleanest water currently on the planet.
