 CHLORINE, FLUORIDE & LEAD CONTAMINATED-TAP-WATER........IS A VERY TOXIC BREW! And, a threat to all living things.

Water is the most essential element of life, because without it you can’t make coffee, nor support living organisms or life as we know it. Current news reports of widespread LEAD contamination in coast-to-coast municipal water supplies from corroded lead delivery pipes is most alarming. All this including hundreds of other chemical and toxic contaminants are reported to be in our home tap-water-supply including but not limited to mercury, lead, arsenic, aluminum, and likely hundreds more!
The Berkey home counter top purifier will solve your water contamination problems with ease...
and inexpensively convert thousands of gallons of questionable water, for pennies per gallon.

Safe2Drink Water works to support life without substitute!!

Contaminated water supports disease and death.

The potential risks are many, and are sadly being withheld by those who benefit from keeping this health robbing threat undercover.

It’s interesting to note that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) used to have a Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG) of zero for chlorine in our drinking water due to its potential toxicity. They list it as a “probable human carcinogen,” and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has determined that chloroform byproduct may reasonably be anticipated to be a cancer causing carcinogen.

However, the EPA was forced to remove the zero standard -- effective as of May 30, 2000 -- after the MCLG was successfully challenged in court by the Chlorine Chemistry Council and the Chemical Manufacturers Association.
Big Chem. got it’s way again with our Gov’t. agencies as does Monsanto and other GMO polluters of our food supply.

While Chlorine and fluoride contamination is a fact of life in our municipal water supplies, you can protect your family by purifying your own drinking water at home with a good quality purifier.

Heart Attacks
Free radicals are linked to the presence of arterial plaque. The residents of a small town in Pennsylvania who ate diets rich in saturated animal fats and milk had no heart attacks – until they switched from mountain spring water to chlorinated tap water.

Immune System Injury
Chlorine destroys acidophilus, a probiotic which helps build and maintain friendly bacteria in your colon. A healthy colon is necessary for a healthy immune system, since about 80 percent of your immune cells operate from your digestive tract. When your colon is overrun with unfriendly bacteria, your immune system is compromised, and your ability to fight disease is greatly reduced as well.    

Scientists have linked worldwide pollution of rivers and oceans and chlorination of swimming pools to increased incidents of melanoma, the most dangerous form of skin cancer.
Research from the University of Nijmegen in the Netherlands discovered that people who swam in chlorinated pools or polluted waters as children had 2.2 to 2.4 times the risk of developing melanoma compared to those who did not swim in chlorinated waters.

In the 1970’s, researchers found that chlorinated water at levels at or below the EPA standard increased the risk of gastrointestinal cancer by 50 to 100 percent over a lifetime.
Additionally, -- as your bladder and rectum store waste products for periods of time – chlorinated water is associated with increased risk of bladder and rectal cancers.
A study published in 1998 by the National Cancer Institute found that male smokers who drank chlorinated tap water for more than 40 years had double the risk of bladder cancer as smoking males who drank non-chlorinated water.5

Another study found that rates for rectal cancers for both sexes escalated with duration of consumption of chlorinated water. Individuals on low-fiber diets who also drank chlorinated water for over 40 years more than doubled their risk for rectal cancer, compared with lifetime drinkers of non-chlorinated water.

Reproductive Issues and Birth Defects
Studies have also shown that chlorine found in human tissue and breast milk has caused a 50 percent drop in sperm counts in Denmark.
And, research conducted in Europe indicated that women in their first trimester of pregnancy who drink five or more glasses of chlorinated tap water a day could be at a much higher risk of miscarriage.
A Norwegian study of 141,000 births over a three year period found the risk of spina bifida increased 14 percent in areas with chlorinated water.

Allergic Reactions
Chlorine can cause allergic symptoms like skin rashes, headaches, gastrointestinal difficulties, and even arthritis.
In addition to the toxic byproducts and the health hazards mentioned above, chlorine also creates free radicals and oxysterols in water.

Government Admits it Overdosed Children on Fluoride

The government finally admitted it has overdosed American children on fluoride.
Citing studies showing that two out of five adolescents had tooth streaking, spottiness or pitting (ie, fluoride poisoning), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reduced itsggg guidelines for fluoride in municipal water supplies to 0.7 milligrams per liter from 1.2 mg per liter.

Sodium fluoride is added to most American drinking water under government fiat. American dentists recommend using fluoride toothpaste, though they recommend infant formula be made from fluoride-free water. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention calls fluoride one of the “ten greatest public health achievements of the 20th Century.”

They don’t tell you it’s a poisonous pesticide that harms teeth and bones. Don’t believe it? Type the words “dental fluorosis” in your Google search bar and view the images.
Fluoride is a developmental neurotoxin that causes brain defects, according to a study in The Lancet. It’s also an industrial waste so toxic that were you or I dumping it into lakes and streams we would be arrested for dumping hazardous toxic waste. But municipal water suppliers are recommended to dump it into the water supply.
Studies have shown fluoride increases cancer risk, reduces IQs in children, causes arthritis symptoms and is an endocrine disrupter. A World Health Organization study conducted from 1978- 1992 showed that Americans living in areas where drinking water was treated with what the

Environmental Protection Agency deemed was “optimal” levels had increased risk of cancer in 23 different areas of the body. Male children exposed to high levels of fluoride may have a 546 percent increased risk of developing osteosarcoma later in life, according research conducted at Harvard.
Now that the government has admitted it has for years poisoned American children and ruined their teeth, will it hold itself responsible? When pigs fly!

Over-Fluoridation of Drinking Water

For decades, fluoride has been pumped into the tap water of most municipalities. This is all part of a government plan to prevent cavities in low-income children. The federal government sets regulations. And cities add fluoride to your drinking water based on those safety standards.

But those safety standards aren’t all they’re cracked up to be.

Public health officials have long tried to dismiss anti-fluoridation arguments. They call them baseless. They paint those against forced fluoridation as paranoid tinfoil-hat types. But hard facts aren’t as easy to dismiss.

The Centers for Disease Control released some disturbing numbers about fluoride in a recent report. They admitted that 41% of American children over age 12 exhibit symptoms of fluorosis. That’s the technical term for toxic levels of fluoride. The first symptom is discolorations on teeth. That’s evidence that millions of people are ingesting too much of fluoride.

This brings to mind the case of the California drought—the human suffering in that state is directly attributable to poor infrastructure and government mismanagement. Over and over again, our government mismanages our natural resources. And we’re the ones who have to suffer for it.

At Least 2 in 5 Children Get Too Much Fluoride

Since 1962, the government had been encouraging cities to add fluoride to their drinking water. Bureaucrats have set guidelines at 1.2 parts per million in cooler parts of the country. In warmer climates, guidelines are lower at 0.7 PPM. In hotter climates, people tend to drink more water. So the lower fluoride levels are meant to prevent toxicity.

Public health officials are calling for a reduction in fluoride because they realize now they’ve been poisoning people. But the decision only affects cities that use the higher 1.2-PPM guideline. The implication is that only these communities are at risk of toxicity.

But fluorosis afflicts children and adults in all parts of the country.  

The new federal fluoride standard is 0.7 PPM throughout the country. No reduction in the recommendation for warmer climates. Apparently, government officials don’t think that regional variations in water intake matter. Either that, or they are knowingly putting people in southern states at greater risk compared to the rest of the country. 

Is Fluoride in the Water Even Necessary?

A lot has changed about oral health practices since 1962. Today, almost all toothpastes contain fluoride. Mouthwash products are more widely used – many of which also contain fluoride. Whatever the justification for water fluoridation was decades ago, it is weaker by today’s standards.

There’s just less of a need for fluoride in drinking water. 

Critics of forced fluoridation have warned about the dangers of toxic levels of the chemical. They argue there’s a need to eliminate fluoride from our drinking water. At the very least, they’d like to see the levels scaled back dramatically everywhere that water fluoridation is practiced. 

Fluoride Levels Lowered – But Not in All Regions

Over-fluoridation is a national problem. So why isn’t the government lowering fluoridation targets in all parts of the country? There doesn’t seem to be a good scientific reason. Perhaps there is a political one. Bureaucrats have spent 50+ years defending forced fluoridation levels of 0.7 PPM as safe and necessary. At this point, they don’t want to lose face.

So officials admit that fluoride-induced tooth discoloration is a widespread problem. But there is a more disturbing consequence of fluorosis that you won’t hear about from bureaucrats.

Multiple academic studies have shown that fluoride can accumulate in brain tissue. Over time, it can impair cognitive functioning. A 2013 study found that fluoridated water could subtract as much as 6.9 IQ points from children. You can bet the government doesn’t want you to read that study.

Filter First
It may be fine to rinse with fluoridated tap water.  But if you’re going to drink it, filter it first. Make sure you choose a filtering system capable of removing fluoride contaminants.  Otherwise, opt instead for bottled spring water.  (Caution: most bottled “drinking water” comes from municipal sources and may therefore contain fluoride.)

Fluoridation proponents claim that fluoride makes teeth more resistant to cavities.  Most dentists agree.  Even so, there’s no good reason to swallow and ingest fluoride.  It can be applied topically to the teeth via toothpaste, mouth rinses, and professional treatments. 

Many mouthwashes contain alcohol. For some people, alcohol can be harsh and lead to dry mouth. Fortunately, non-alcohol-based dental rinses can be just as effective. Look for rinses that contain xylitol, which targets certain types of oral bacteria. Xylitol also stimulates salivation and promotes a healthy pH balance in the mouth.

So gargle and rinse to a cleaner mouth. And drink a fluoride-free glass of water to preventing toxins from accumulating in your body.
