"Cancer and Chlorine"

Facts:

1. During a 10 minute shower, a person will absorb through their skin the equivalent of 8-10 glasses of water.

2. There are 35,000 pesticides containing 600 chemical compounds. Yet municipal water systems are only required to test for six. Many of these chemicals are known to cause birth defects, nerve damage, sterility and cancer.

3. The General Accounting Office reports that 20% of the nation's 65,000 community systems are unable to meet minimum standards set by the Safe Drinking Water Act.

4. More than 700 organic chemicals have been identified in drinking water, and some of them are suspected cancer causing agents.

5. A recent government study found that more than 25% of all large U.S. public water systems contain traces of one or more toxic substances. ... Public water systems do not test for the carcinogens and other dangerous chemicals that are being found.

"Developed to promote human health and well being, certain pharmaceuticals are now attracting attention as a potentially new class of water pollutants. Such drugs as antibiotics, anti-depressants, birth control pills, seizure medication, cancer treatments, pain killers, tranquilizers and cholesterol-lowering compounds have been detected in varied water sources.

Where do they come from? Pharmaceutical industries, hospitals and other medical facilities are obvious sources, but households also contribute a significant share. People often dispose of unused medicines by flushing them down toilets, and human excreta can contain varied incompletely metabolized medicines. These drugs can pass intact through conventional sewage treatment facilities, into waterways, lakes and even aquifers. Further, discarded pharmaceuticals often end up at dumps and land fills, posing a threat to underlying groundwater."

"One bottled water brand spurred a 78% increase in the growth of the breast cancer cells"

"In 2004 the water in Coca-Cola's Dasani bottled water brand was found to be tap water taken from the municipal water supply. More recently, Pepsi's Aquafina brand also admitted to the same act and, as of July 27 2007, has printed the words "Public Water Source" on every one of their bottles."

"According to the Container Recycling Institute, supplying the plastic water bottles that American consumers purchase in one year requires more than 47 million gallons of oil, the equivalent of one billion pounds of carbon dioxide that is released into the atmosphere. Additionally, water diverted from local aquifers for the bottled water industry can strain surrounding ecosystems."

"Doctors have long said people should drink eight to 10 glasses of water every day.
But they probably do not ask people to test the pH first to see if it is acid or alkaline.
Water companies are testing it all the time, and one doctor claims that information can impact how you feel.".........

"We kind of determined it might be the water that I was drinking was too acid or acidic," he said. "Just switching his water made a tremendous difference in terms of how he's feeling," said Dr. Gerard Guillory, an internal medicine physician in Aurora. "What a lot of people don't understand is that some of the water that you drink, particularly bottled water, is actually very acidic. If, for example, you have heartburn or acid reflux, the last thing you want to do is be drinking water that is actually acidic," Guillory said. He said dozens of his patients have experience symptoms solved simply by changing their water."

"Distilled water is an active absorber and when it comes into contact with air, it absorbs carbon dioxide, making it acidic. The more distilled water a person drinks, the higher the body acidity becomes. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, "Distilled water, being essentially mineral-free, is very aggressive, in that it tends to dissolve substances with which it is in contact. Notably, carbon dioxide from the air is rapidly absorbed, making the water acidic and even more aggressive. Many metals are dissolved by distilled water."
"The most toxic commercial beverages that people consume (i.e. cola beverages and other soft drinks) are made from distilled water. Studies have consistently shown that heavy consumers of soft drinks (with or without sugar) spill huge amounts of calcium, magnesium and other trace minerals into the urine. The more mineral loss, the greater the risk for osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, hypothyroidism, coronary artery disease, high blood pressure and a long list of degenerative diseases generally associated with premature aging."

"Ingestion of distilled water leads to the dilution of the electrolytes dissolved in the body water. Inadequate body water redistribution between
compartments may compromise the function of vital organs. Symptoms at the very beginning of this condition include tiredness, weakness and headache; more severe symptoms are muscular cramps and impaired heart rate."

"The longer one drinks distilled water, the more likely the development of mineral deficiencies and an acid state. I have done well over 3000 mineral evaluations using a combination of blood, urine and hair tests in my practice. Almost without exception, people who consume distilled water exclusively, eventually develop multiple mineral deficiencies.
Those who supplement their distilled water intake with trace minerals are not as deficient but still not as adequately nourished in minerals as their non-distilled water drinking counterparts even after several years of mineral supplementation.
The ideal water for the human body should be slightly alkaline and this requires the presence of minerals like calcium and magnesium."
