Linked to chlorinated water consumption are heart attacks, lowered sperm count, asthma, liver problems, stillbirths, headaches & MORE … learn the health risks & be proactive

According to the U.S. Council of Environmental Quality…

“The cancer risk to people who drink chlorinated water is 93 percent higher than those who don’t”

Dear friend concerned about chlorine,

What if that clear, clean-looking liquid you use every day – to quench your thirst, to bathe and shower in, and to wash your dishes and laundry in contributed to dozens of everyday ailments, including…

  • Heart attacks… page 4
  • Tiredness, dizziness or headaches… page 9
  • Eye, sinus and throat irritation… page 7
  • Your sperm count (men)… page 5
  • Your risk of a miscarriage (women)… page 5
  • Childhood asthma… page 9
  • Damaging hair cuticles and the cause or worsening of dandruff… page 7
  • Skin rashes, headaches, gastrointestinal difficulties and arthritis… page 5
  • Liver problems… page 6
  • The drying out of your hair and scalp
  • A toxic cocktail of indoor pollution in your home… page 7
  • Spontaneous abortion, stillbirths and congenital formations… page 8
  • Kidney problems… page 9
  • Your odds of having a child with spina bifida… page 5
  • A weakened immune system, significantly impacting your body’s ability to fight disease… page 4

Truth is, the water we use in and around our homes is far from the fresh, pure resource you might assume. And the worst part is…

Americans are ingesting from 300 to 600 times what the Environmental Protection Agency considers a “safe” amount while chlorine itself is relatively benign, and was created to help keep us free from infectious diarrheas, it reacts with organic materials which already dissolve in water, forming chemicals (known as DBP’s) that are over 100 times more toxic than chlorine.

Sounds pretty scary, doesn’t it?

And considering the negative impact it is probably having on your family’s well-being, wouldn’t you want to know everything you can about this toxic cocktail in your water supply? Of course!

Well, the good news is world renowned physician and multiple New York Time’s Best Selling author, Dr. Mercola, has gathered all the research about chlorine together in one place – and created one of the most important and time-sensitive reports ever released to the public.

So what are the documented side effects of chlorine? The startling evidence could shock you into making choices which might just save your life…

  • According to the U.S. Council of Environmental Quality, the cancer risk to people who drink chlorinated water is 93 percent higher than among those whose water does not contain chlorine.
  • 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 fluoridated water.
  • 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.

Women with breast cancer have 50% -60% higher levels of chlorination byproducts in their breast tissue than women without breast cancer – thanks to our authorities

We’ve been hearing this message on chlorine a lot lately. Sadly it’s well installed in many (most?) water supplies with little hope of getting it removed. If it’s not chlorine it’s fluoride, both poisonous chemicals. It’s government (corporation) approved. (Like your Local Govt, Central Govt is also a business folks so their primary focus is profits, not as you’d thought, you, the tax/rate payer). This is why their CEs are paid ‘modest’ salaries like a quarter of a million dollars and higher. Seems at this stage your only hope is to filter or distill it out yourself at very great cost. But whatever you do, protect yourself and remove it somehow anyway. With these kinds of health risks it’s imperative. (Thanks to thecontrail for the link)

Showering in chlorinated waters poses a greater risk to your health than drinking it … your skin pores allow it to travel straight into your bloodstream

One of the most shocking components to all of these studies is that up to 2/3s of our harmful exposure to chlorine is due to inhalation of steam and skin absorption while showering

CHLORINATED SHOWERS & BATHS KILL GUT FLORA

It makes intuitive sense that drinking chlorinated water can create imbalances in your intestinal flora. We know that chlorine will kill many of the good bacteria and microbes that live symbiotically with us in our gut. These good bacteria help us digest our food, keeping us serene and healthy. But most of us fail to take this thought to it’s logical end. I know I did.

You see, I thought that if I just drank filtered water, I’d have my bases covered. It never even occurred to me that the chlorine in my shower and bath water could be just as damaging, if not more so. That’s because your skin is your largest organ, and it’s naturally gifted with the ability to absorb both nutrients and toxins.

Chlorine from drinking water can enter your body in several ways, including ingestion. You also inhale chloroform, a byproduct of chlorine, when you take a hot shower or bath. According to an article from Science News, researchers found increases in chloroform in study participants’ lungs of about 2.7ppb after a 10-minute shower. Warm water also further opens pores, so the combination of what your skin absorbs and your lungs inhale during a 10-minute shower is greater than the amount you would ingest drinking eight glasses of water from the same tap. In fact, studies at the University of Pittsburgh found less chemical exposure from ingesting chlorinated water than from showering or washing clothes in it. The study found that, on average, absorption through the skin was responsible for 64 percent of waterborne contaminants that enter the human body.

Karmen from ShowerHeadly, urges us to consider that, “not only is it dangerous to drink chlorinated water, but it’s even more dangerous to shower or bathe in it.” Even the EPA’s own scientists agree:

There is a lot of well founded concern about chlorine. When chlorine is added to our water, it combines with other natural compounds to form Trihalomethanes (chlorination byproducts), or THMs. These chlorine byproducts trigger the production of free radicals in the body, causing cell damage, and are highly carcinogenic. “Although concentrations of these carcinogens (THMs) are low, it is precisely these low levels that cancer scientists believe are responsible for the majority of human cancers in the United States“. The Environmental Defense Fund

Simply stated chlorine is a pesticide, as defined by the U.S. EPA, who’s sole purpose is to kill living organisms. When we consume water containing chlorine, it kills some part of us, destroying cells and tissue inside our body. Dr. Robert Carlson, a highly respected University of Minnesota researcher who’s work is sponsored by the Federal Environmental Protection Agency, sums it up by claiming , “the chlorine problem is similar to that of air pollution”, and adds that “chlorine is the greatest crippler and killer of modern times!”

Chlorine in drinking water first linked to heart attacks and stroke in the 1960s & now cancer … so why is it still in our drinking water?

Look at the independent research people. Water supplies world wide are producing negative health effects with major scares going on. Chlorine is the new sticking plaster for all the polluted waterways. However it is carcinogenic. We are being slowly poisoned. Many families will not know this, and many if they do know, will not be able to afford to filter it out. See our Water pages and share this information.

(NaturalHealth365) Numerous studies are showing a link between chlorine intake and cancer, heart attacks and other negative health effects.

This occurs when chlorine byproducts trigger harmful free radicals in the body and inhibit other cellular processes. While drinking water with chlorination causes the most damage, cooking and bathing with it can also expose you to negative health effects.  Keep in mind, the lungs and skin can be just as sensitive as internal organs.

shower-1502736_1280
Showering in chlorinated water poses an even greater risk as it is absorbed quickly and directly into the bloodstream through the skin

The practice of chlorination has been used since the 1800s, although it didn’t become a standard until the early 1900s. It’s utilized primarily because it is the cheapest way to disinfect large amounts of water. However, it is far from the safest.  In fact, using chlorine in water  is like pouring bleach in it.

Drinking water with chlorine can elevate cancer risk by up to 93 percent

The U.S. Council of Environmental Quality has estimated that cancer risk among those who drink
 chlorinated water can be up to 93 percent higher than those who don’t.

A 1960s book by Dr. Joseph Price called “Coronaries Cholesterol Chlorine” was one of the first publications to expose the connection between chlorine and a higher risk of stroke and heart attack.  Test animals exposed to chlorinated water during research studies showed at least some levels of circulatory or heart issues, whereas those not exposed to this toxic element showed no evidence of these problems. Chickens exposed to chlorinated water showed evidence of overall poor circulation as well as drooping in their feathers, lethargy, and visible shivering.

By contrast, animals not exposed to chlorine show better growth rates and much more vigorous overall health. (This is an indicator that pets and farm animals should also be given non-chlorinated water)

Chlorine, Cancer, and Heart Disease

liquid-1210614_1280

by Dr. Edward Group DC, NP, DACBN, DCBCN, DABFM

Adding chlorine to drinking water is a practice that began in the late 1800s, and by 1904 this was the standard in water treatment. For the most part, this process is still implemented today. Unfortunately, chlorine isn’t used because it’s the safest or most effective means of disinfection — it’s just the cheapest. In spite of all our technological advances, we essentially still pour bleach in our water before we drink it. The long-term effects of chlorinated drinking water have just recently being recognized. Past research has indicated it may be a contributor to cancer; however, there is no conclusive data to replicate these findings. [1]

History of Chlorine Danger

Dr. Joseph Price wrote a highly controversial book in the late sixties titled Coronaries/Cholesterol/Chlorine and concluded that the basic cause of atherosclerosis and resulting entities such as heart attacks and stroke, is chlorine. While the study abstract is not available online, if you read his book, Dr. Price reported using chickens as test subjects in one of his studies where two groups of several hundred birds were observed throughout their span to maturity. One group was given water with chlorine and the other without. The group raised with chlorine, when autopsied, supposedly showed some level of heart or circulatory disease in every specimen, yet the group without had no incidence of disease. The group with chlorine under winter conditions showed outward signs of poor circulation, shivering, drooped feathers, and a reduced level of activity. The group without chlorine grew faster, larger, and displayed vigorous health. It would be a common sense conclusion that if regular chlorinated tap water is not good enough for the chickens, then it probably is not good enough for us humans!

Chlorine Dangers Today

There is a lot of well-founded concern about chlorine. When chlorine is added to our water, it combines with other natural compounds to form Trihalomethanes (chlorination byproducts), or THMs. These chlorine byproducts trigger the production of free radicals in the body, causing cell damage, and are highly carcinogenic. The Environmental Defense Fund warns that, “Although concentrations of these carcinogens (THMs) are low, it is precisely these low levels that cancer scientists believe are responsible for the majority of human cancers in the United States.“

Only 40% of Your Rivers are Swimmable Kiwis, Check First, You Could get Trench Mouth – The ‘Sustainable’ Spin of NZLG, Trading Our Clean Water for Corporate Profit

Your esteemed leaders have traded your clean water for their corporate profits. And you didn’t even notice it was happening!

15747630_1199463936802579_4615127325200767485_n

Don’t forget folks, before taking a dip in our (no longer) ‘clean green’ waterways, check which ones your LG has trashed lately or failed to police.

untitled
LG, “… enabling economic growth and … environmental well being” … really? with 60% of our rivers too dirty to swim in? SOURCE

Your authorities that bandy around the term ‘sustainable practices’, ‘sustainable development’ while in practice doing the complete opposite have left us now with only 40% of the waterways safe to swim in. We posted earlier this year on how a person contracted Trench Mouth from ingesting water from the Manawatu River. I kid you not. Our esteemed authorities seem to think the nice images of kiddies smiling and WADING (note) make up for it ; they think we are all gullible. We know why our waterways are trashed and it wasn’t aliens or some strange biological phenomena. It was our central and local governments which are really corporations and not democracies at all, giving priority to their corporate mates. That’s right, discharge your industrial pollution into the waterways and we’ll turn the proverbial blind eye … we’ll even pipe a bit of sewage in there ourselves to add to the 1080 & Glyphosate (in Roundup) among other things.

untitled
Sewage pollution of our waterways by Local Govt: see Horowhenua article here

No worries, the folks can just swim in our heavily chlorinated carcinogenic pools instead, and pay for the pleasure. Chlorine is the new sticking plaster for pollution. We also pay large amounts of money to either remove chlorine (and other chemicals) from our drinking water or purchase clean water. And never mind the free swimming holes … the public will adapt eventually, and before long they’ll forget their grandparents even used to swim or catch edible food in them. Are you getting the picture? They have traded your clean water for their corporate profits. And you didn’t even notice it was happening. Remember, or perhaps you didn’t know, our DCs are companies and your government is a corporation. Look up your DC on the Dun and Bradstreet website. A registered company/corporation is accountable to its shareholders and is for profit and not technically a democracy.

Finally, add to all of this the fallout from Geoengineering that daily pollutes our water, soil & air and you have a completely toxic cocktail of poison.

This is how not only your environment is compromised Kiwis, but your health as well. Soaking in chlorine is not healthy. Stats show that Chlorine is a carcinogen so long term soaking in and ingesting it can lead to cancer. Check out our related pages or search ‘categories’ for similar articles.

Look What’s in Hamilton’s Water

14316917_10202235441964720_5705045447557577595_n

Currently, NZ wide, we are having many a debacle over our water and what it contains. Not too long ago we looked into testing our drinking water for glyphosate – it was going to cost us NZ$500+ !! The adders of these chemicals sure make testing cost prohibitive. Instead we pay big dollars for filters to extract the stuff. Facebook is chock full of discussions and pages on water : its sale offshore at bargain prices, its poisoning by DC’s addition of chemicals, its contamination by deadly bugs enough to recently cause the death of two people, the contamination of public waterways by the indiscriminate dispersal of toxic 1080 and the list goes on. So here we have the addition of fluoride, a known neurotoxin, into our drinking water, and this lab analysis reveals even more than fluoride. Lead, Arsenic, Barium and Aluminium (found in the brains of Alzheimers affected people)!

Fluoride bonds with aluminum in drinking water to form a strong complex. As they combine, fluoride can basically serve as a channel for aluminum to enter the brain and the bones. This welcomes osteotoxicity and neurodegeneration as seen in Alzheimer’s disease …  Dr Mercola

Please filter it out. Purchase a good quality filter for your house and/or a distiller for your drinking water. These chemicals in a hot water shower are easily absorbed into your bloodstream, more easily than via your stomach in drinking water. We are not being told about this and are left largely to our own devices in terms of testing and purifying. Educate yourself and protect your families. The corporation will not. Their one priority, their legal mandate even, is profits not people. And your councils remember, are companies. Search on Dun and Bradstreet’s website and see for yourself.

Natural News exclusive: Fluoride used in U.S. water supplies found contaminated with lead, tungsten, strontium, aluminum and uranium
“We now have irrefutable scientific proof that the sodium fluoride used in U.S. water supplies is contaminated with toxic elements, heavy metals and other elements which have radioactive isotopes (strontium and uranium) that are present in the environment at trace levels.
The presence of these elements in water fluoridation chemicals cannot be refuted by any informed person, as the evidence is easily confirmed by any competent laboratory running ICP-MS instrumentation.

We also know that U.S. cities which foolishly engage in water fluoridation almost never test their raw materials for heavy metals contamination. Read More
