The quality of the water determines the quality of the life it gives.
When we use a word like pure we have to stop, pause and ponder. In The Science of the Pure, I wrote about the very specific effect something pure has on the impure. One merges into the other, the pure becomes less pure and the impure becomes slightly more pure.
This principle can be applied in medicine. For instance if we pass pure substances through the body, substances like pure clay, activated charcoal, or even diatomaceous earth, these substances will pull to them impurities, they will clean and heal because they are so pure. All of these substances have fantastic abilities to absorb the impure. (more…)
A soup of pharmaceutical waste spews from the faucets supplying drinking water to 41 million Americans, according to a disturbing study from the Associated Press. At least 24 major cities are affected, including New York, Washington, Boston Chicago, and Los Angeles.
Here are some of the key test results obtained by the AP:
Officials in Philadelphia said testing there discovered 56 pharmaceuticals or byproducts in treated drinking water, including medicines for pain, infection, high cholesterol, asthma, epilepsy, mental illness and heart problems. Sixty-three pharmaceuticals or byproducts were found in the city’s watersheds.
Anti-epileptic and anti-anxiety medications were detected in a portion of the treated drinking water for 18.5 million people in Southern California.
Researchers at the U.S. Geological Survey analyzed a Passaic Valley Water Commission drinking water treatment plant, which serves 850,000 people in Northern New Jersey, and found a metabolized angina medicine and the mood-stabilizing carbamazepine in drinking water.
A sex hormone was detected in San Francisco’s drinking water.
The drinking water for Washington, D.C., and surrounding areas tested positive for six pharmaceuticals.
Three medications, including an antibiotic, were found in drinking water supplied to Tucson, Ariz.
The situation is undoubtedly worse than suggested by the positive test results in the major population centers documented by the AP.
Most of us have a food allergy or intolerance—and the culprit could be the chemicals used to chlorinate the public water supply. The chemical, dichlorophenol, is also found in pesticides, which we can absorb from the air we breathe and the food we eat, say researchers.
Researchers have pinpointed the chemical as the most likely cause of f
ood allergies and intolerances after they discovered that sufferers had the highest levels of the pollutant in their body. Of the 2,211 people with high levels of dichlorophenol analysed in a survey, 411 had a food allergy—which can sometimes be life-threatening—and another 1,016 had an environmental allergy, such as hay fever.
However, it’s been estimated that half the population of the West has food intolerance—often to wheat, milk or eggs—which is a milder form of allergy where there is discomfort and difficulty in digesting the food. This, too, could be caused by the chemical.
The chemical is extensively used to chlorinate the water supply we get from our taps (faucets) and in pesticides. So, even changing to bottled water may not do the trick, say researchers from the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. It’s also found on the fruit and vegetable we eat—unless, of course, you eat organic.

What if you just found out that cancer in America began when food processing plants became prominent and people moved closer to the industrial plants, where the jobs were, just after World War II? And what if you found out from a very “reliable source” that the U.S. government knew this processed food would cause cancer? Would you believe it, or would you call the people who do believe it conspiracy theorists? Does it seem so RADICAL of a concept, like some outrageous and malicious plan to make money at the expense of people’s lives and livelihood? Or is it just paranoia, now being spread by the nightly news? (http://www.naturalnews.com/012923.html) (more…)
Fluoride-pushing doctors and dentists who try to contaminate your water supply with fluoride are promoting their deadly agenda with a clever lie… a lie you will see obediently repeated in every fluoride push. Here’s how it sounds:
Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral in the water. Our city’s water is unfortunate enough to have a low level, so we are simply adjusting the fluoride in the water to its optimum levels to improve public health.
This lie is repeated almost verbatim, across every city that seeks to poison its citizens with fluoride. Why is it a lie? Here are the five false deceptions found embedded in the statement:
Deception #1) The fluoride ADDED to the water is not “naturally occurring fluoride.” It’s a chemical byproduct often purchased from chemical plants in China (see below). (more…)
The mainstream media is at it again, lying to the public about fluoride. This time, the culprit is HealthDay, a “canned news” service that spits out lies and disinformation to be published by subscribing websites. Recently, HealthDay put out a story by author Alan Mozes claiming that bottled water might be harming children’s dental health because there’s no fluoride in it!

‘Hydraulic fracturing for natural gas and oil may be one of the most well-documented horrors to disgrace the planet. Despite only being practiced for roughly a decade, the evidence is piling up that fracking utilizes cancer-causing chemicals, causes earthquakes, and pollutes the air with hydrocarbons such as benzene.
Government regulatory agencies have made half-hearted attempts to suggest that they actually will halt the practice, but so far the oil and gas industries have largely been left alone, even as the EPA admits that fracking causes groundwater pollution.
In fact, the USDA dropped their plan to review the environmental impact of fracking for land owners who host fracking stations. Investigative reporter, Greg Palast, discusses in the video below the wide-ranging impact of this decision, as well as alluding specifically to the potential consequence to aquifers.
For instance, a resident in Pennsylvania demonstrates in the video how his tap water is now flammable – so it appears that contaminated aquifers are already a reality.’
