How Safe Is Your Drinking Water?
"Tap water from 48,000 public water utilities was found to contain multiple cancer-causing agents from arsenic, dioxane, chromium 6 to nitrates, according to researcher with the Environmental Working Group. Researchers published the findings of their five year study in an online database, searchable by zip code or a local utility’s name, with findings on tap water in public water systems in all 50 states." http://www.blacklistednews.com/Cancer-causing_pollutants_detected_i...
How safe is your drinking water? A new study by a group calling itself the Environmental Working Group discovered 48,000 municipal utilities throughout all fifty states contained multiple cancer causing carcinogens! For years conspiracy theorists have long maintained "the government" or nefarious secret entities were poisoning our water supply but now it seems, like so many of their theories there is verifiable truth in their claims.
Municipal water contamination came to the public attention when it was discovered the water supply in Flint Michigan was contaminated with lead and other toxic elements. The alarming truth is Flint is not the only city facing lead contamination issues. http://www.reuters.com/investigates/special-report/usa-lead-testing/, http://www.cnn.com/2016/06/28/us/epa-lead-in-u-s-water-systems/inde.... But nation wide it's worse than that. The study released by EWG reveals the drinking water in 48,000 public utilities contains cancer causing agents and carcinogens! And this doesn't include well water or places where there aren't public utilities.
Lead is lethal but the other stuff the study revealed is extremely toxic and dangerous to our health. Go to the Environmental Working Group's Website to see for yourself. https://www.ewg.org/tapwater/?_ga=2.88663451.1405934153.1501259550-.... Locate your state on the map and then click it to see the water quality results and status. You can click the state where family and friends live to see how safe or at risk they may be. The report for each state contains the names of each utility, the violation points, a list of the contaminants, the number of people served and impacted and contaminant levels above the legal limit.
For years health advocates and conspiracy theorists alike have been saying fluoridated water doesn't protect against tooth decay, that it is a dangerous and harmful additive. "What is known is that fluoride is toxic. In fact, the number one reason for poison control calls concerning fluoride are for children who’ve eaten toothpaste.   Long-term ingestion is harmful to the brain, digestive system, heart, bones… even the tooth enamel it’s supposed to help. " https://www.globalhealingcenter.com/natural-health/9-shocking-dange...
In his book The Trillion Dollar Conspiracy (Harper Collins) researcher Jim Marrs has this to say about fluoridated water. " Most people don't realize that fluoride is a key ingredient in Prozac and many other psychotropic drugs. Prozac whose scientific name is fluoxetine is 94 percent fluoride ... Today, two thirds of all municipal water and most bottle water in the United States contain sodium fluoride. Fluoride is a poisonous waste product of aluminum manufacture that accumulates in the human body. The use of aluminum cookware has been strongly linked to Alzheimer's disease a progressive brain disorder that gradually destroys a person's memory and ability to learn, reason and make judgments. A Christian Science Monitor survey in 1954 showed that seventy-nine of eighty-one Nobel Prize winners in chemistry, medicine and physiology refused to endorse water fluoridation. Nevertheless, every US Public Health Service surgeon general since the 1950's has supported putting this rat poison ingredient into America's water supply." page 100-101
Don't just take my word for it do some research on your own. Here is some additional information that I think my interest you and jumpstart your investigation into this aspect of water toxicity, "The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) lists fluoride among about 100 chemicals for which there is 'substantial evidence of developmental neurotoxicity.' Experiments on animals reveal that fluoride accumulates in the brain and alters mental behavior (Mullenix 1995). There have been over 100 animal experiments showing that fluoride damages the brain and impacts learning and behavior."

One way to ensure safer drinking water is to drink distilled water. Experts advise not to drink distilled water stored in plastic bottles. Some advocates say the best way to insure clean healthy drinking water is to distill it yourself. Here is a YouTube video that demonstrates how. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ISHJt7nsPGA.
