Tap water: murder in the western nations

poison from the tap
There are many Americans who refuse to drink tap water. Many of them use water filters to eliminate the taste of chlorine. The smell or stench of the water should not be the only reason to avoid ingesting it. People should be far more concerned about which impurities are actually producing the foul taste, and what they may be doing to their health.

The water supplied by most cities contains chlorine, fluoride, varying amounts of dissolved minerals including calcium, magnesium, and sodium, chlorides, sulphates, and bicarbonates. It is also not uncommon to find traces of iron, manganese, copper, aluminum, nitrates, insecticides, and herbicides. Prescription medications have also been found in the tap water of 41,000,000 American homes across the United States. According to the Associated Press; there is a vast array of pharmaceuticals including antibiotics, anti-convulsants, mood stabilizers and sex hormones in the municipal water supplies. The federal government does not require any testing and has not set safety limits for drugs in the water supplies. We will not know the long-term effects of ingesting random concoctions of prescription drugs for numerous years. Sadly, our grandchildren probably will.

Delicious Thirst Quenching Bleach

Chlorine bleach is added to practically all U.S. public water supplies as a disinfectant. It is not used because it is safe, but because it is cheap. Adding chlorine limits the liability of the governmental agencies who provide potentially putrid water, because the side-effects of their chlorine disinfection are difficult to trace, and occur only after extensive long-term use. For example, it would be easy for citizens to prove that they became ill from drinking non-disinfected water by simply testing the contaminated water, but it is much more difficult to prove that their heart disease or cancer was created by chlorine by-products after twenty years of consuming it. Chlorine bleach is used to satisfy certain priorities, whereby saving money is a much higher priority than long-term public health. When usage of chlorine began in the early 1900's, the long-term effects were unknown, but there are no longer any excuses to force the public to drink bleach. It is not uncommon to find the chlorine in tap water at unsafe levels for swimming pools. A simple chlorine test kit from a local discount department store will typically yield surprising results.

One troubling quality of chlorine is its tendency to neutralize oxygen. Once inside the body, it has an oxygen depleting effect, and this shifts the body's PH toward becoming acidic. These effects are disruptive to a person's immune system, which opens him up to a whole host of potential infections, and it makes him much more prone to suffer allergy symptoms. Water occurring in nature always contains a small amount of hydrogen peroxide, which in many ways makes it the opposite of chemically treated water in PH, oxygen levels, and healthiness. The difference between pure water and chemically altered tap water is literally the difference between natural rain and acid rain.

most significant risks with chlorine come not from the chlorine itself, but from its by-products which are usually known as trihalomethanes (THMs). These are produced whenever chlorine contacts organic proteins. An example of a THM is chloroform, a proven cancer-causing agent. Animal studies have consistently shown an association between THMs and cancers of the liver and kidneys. Independent studies have repeatedly demonstrated that chlorine and THMs are strong contributing factors in creating colon and bladder cancers, as well as diabetes, kidney stones, and heart attacks.

Chlorine has been known for years to both cause and worsen respiratory problems including asthma and pneumonia. As a halogen which damages enzymes, chlorine weakens the immune system upon ingestion. Chlorine causes magnesium deficiencies, which can causes migraine headaches, high blood pressure, chemical sensitivities, and in severe cases, sudden death according to Mark J. Eisenberg, M.D. (especially when combined with MSG). Chlorine also decreases the absorption while increasing the excretion of calcium and phosphorus. This increased loss of calcium into the urine can lead to bone-related problems including osteoporosis. Chlorine is known to irritate the skin, the eyes, and the respiratory system.

"Chlorine is the greatest crippler and killer of modern times. While it prevented epidemics of one disease, it was creating another. Two decades ago, after the start of chlorinating our drinking water in 1904, the present epidemic of heart trouble, cancer and senility began."

Fluoride: Making Sure Americans Ain't Reel Smart Or Healthy

The American Dental Association, the F.D.A., and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control all maintain that mercury, a cumulative toxic heavy metal, is perfectly safe to be embedded into your living teeth. Not surprisingly, they all also support the fluoridation of public water reservoirs. The poison fluoride has been intentionally added to water supplies in the United States for a century. Fluoridation has been justified by claims that it produces dental health benefits, even though there has never been evidence supporting the belief that ingestion of it could be beneficial. Conversely, there is overwhelming evidence that ingested fluoride is a long-term, cumulative, degenerative poison that attacks even the teeth. These facts were known long before fluoride was added to tap water.

The E.P.A. classifies fluoride as a toxic waste product from aluminum processing, uranium processing, and fertilizer manufacture, but they allow it to be added directly into water for human consumption. Instead of the pharmaceutical grade fluoride that is used in toothpastes, it is this left-over industrial waste sludge that is added to water supplies. If a large amount of this fluoride were spilled at any location, then it would require that the site be quarantined as an E.P.A. clean-up site, where all the workers would need to wear space suits. However, they are okay with it lacing the public water supplies, and with it being used in infant formula. Aside from being placed in our toothpaste and fluoride supplements, sodium fluoride is the main ingredient of rat poisons. It is also used in pesticides, insecticides, and fungicides. Every form of fluoride has a cumulative effect in the body. Every time a person drinks fluoridated water, eats contaminated produce (produce grown with phosphate fertilizer), eats processed foods, or brushes his teeth with fluoridated toothpaste, he is adding to his body's toxic reserves. Even without swallowing any toothpaste, his mouth will absorb up to 1.0 mg of fluoride per brushing directly into the bloodstream through skin absorption.

The scientists who promoted the use of fluoride initially are the same infamous ones who promoted adding lead to gasoline, and who performed radiation experiments on unknowing patients. They were well endowed by the chemical industry for all of this, and for keeping silent about their most disturbing findings. They were traitors to the practice of medicine, and traitors to their country. These doctors were proud mass murderers, and their experiments are well documented.

Here is some of that history. The top scientist who oversaw the Newburgh Experiment, and the leading voice promoting water fluoridation as safe in low doses was Dr. Harold Hodge. Dr. Hodge is still regarded as the dean of the science of toxicology in the United States. While selling the use of fluoride for children, he was simultaneously head of the Division of Pharmacology and Toxicology for the Manhattan Project. He was charged with protecting the government from worker and community lawsuits for fluoride exposure, since fluoride was a by-product of uranium enrichment. Marketing that fluoride was safe in low doses was the Manhattan Project's official policy to reduce the risk of lawsuits against the atomic bomb program. Current policy is the result of that marketing.

this poison is in your toothpaste
Fluoride is a toxic waste product from the chemical industry. Since cities purchase fluoride for their water supplies, the fertilizer industry has one of the best corporate welfare programs. Instead of paying billions to neutralize their toxic waste before discarding it, they accept payments for creating it at a 20,000% markup. The tax payers are customers of this substance which is poisoning them, whether they like it or not. Business is always good for the chemical fertilizer industry.

"If this stuff gets out into the air, it's a pollutant if it gets into the river, it's a pollutant if it gets into the lake it's a pollutant but if it goes right into your drinking water system, it's not a pollutant. That's amazing..."

-- Dr. J. William Hirzy, E.P.A.

"If I were to name one element or chemical compound that would represent the 'Bane of Mans existence on Earth' it would be fluorine or fluoride. Fluorine has caused huge problems for man since the beginning of time due to volcanic events on Earth. Fluorine or Hydrogen Fluoride released from volcanic events or even meteor terminal events is the principle effect for extinction events on this planet."

-- Jim Phelps

Researcher Jim Phelps also noted that, "Rising levels of fluoride are directly connected to disruption of enzymes necessary for cell repair (glutathione particularly) and removal of toxic metals from the human body. The effect results in the rise of lead, mercury, and other toxic metals in children that impair their IQ and long term health. In the elderly, it hastens the onset of gray hair because it is linked to mercury concentrations in the body. It also adds to brittle bone problems, dementia from toxic metals' effects on the brain, and quite literally onset for immune illnesses and death. Fluoride is not a friend to children's teeth, but a deadly cumulative poison where 98 percent [actually ~50%] of the fluoride ingested goes right to the bone of children to disrupt their health in much the same way that Sr90 from nuclear testing was feared to cause cancer in children. The remaining unabsorbed fluoride [ ~50%] attacks the kidneys as they attempt to filter it out of the body, and excrete it through the urinary tract".

"According to the handbook, 'Clinical Toxicology of Commercial Products', fluoride is more poisonous than lead, and just slightly less poisonous than arsenic. It is a cumulative poison that accumulates in bones over the years."
