Water: The Poisonous Truth

Water is the single most important nutrient vital to health and well-being. Sadly, most water is poisonous and unfit to drink. The truth, unfortunately, is that the tap water in your faucet is unsafe and poisonous too. Chemicals used to “kill bacteria and organisms,” are poisoning you and making you susceptible to sickness and even worse…

How Safe is Your Water?


Water, our most vital nutrient is often contaminated and dangerous.

There are dozens of contaminants found in drinking water. Do you know what’s in your water? Whether you have a well or receive your water from a water facility, you should know the quality of the water you drink. More than 1 in 5 Americans unknowingly drink water polluted with feces, lead, radiation or other dangerous contaminants.


Some of the dangerous substances found in drinking water:


  • Synthetic herbicides & pesticides

  • Toxins used in rocket fuel

  • Insect repellents

  • Variety of pathogens


To safeguard your health and the health of your family, your water needs to be filtered to remove toxic contaminants. The Environmental Working Group has an extensive tap water database. By inserting your zip code you will receive an extensive list of the contaminants present in your water. They will also inform you of the specific type of filter you will need. Remember you need to filter not only your drinking water, but your shower and bath water as well. The skin is the largest organ and absorbs toxins readily into the body.

Chlorine is used to effectively disinfect water and to help prevent large-scale microbial epidemics. Unfortunately, chlorine interacts with organisms in the water system to form by-products such as Trihalomethanes; toxins linked to increased incidents of rectal, bladder and pancreatic cancers and may cause damage to the nervous system.


Chlorine has also been linked to heart attacks, strokes, premature senility and sexual impotency. When you think about it, the purpose of chlorine is to kill living organisms; as far as I know we are all living organisms! Even in small amounts, taken daily this poison builds up in our systems and causes harm.

Chlorine also kills intestinal flora within the digestive system. This flora is your gut’s friendly bacteria and is vital for a healthy immune system


Showering and bathing in unfiltered water exposes your skin through dermal absorption and your lungs through respiration. Taking long hot baths or showers in unfiltered tap water can cause skin allergies, respiratory problems and many more chronic health issues.

EPA To Develop Regulation for Perchlorate


The chemical Perchlorate, is used in the manufacture of rocket fuel, fireworks, flares and explosives, and may be present in bleach and some fertilizers. 


The Agency found that perchlorate may have an adverse effect on the health of persons and is known to occur in public drinking water systems with a frequency and at levels that present a public health concern


Other contaminants known to be found in tap water include:

Pathogens: such as bacteria, viruses and protozoa; inorganic chemicals and metals: such as lead, nitrates and arsenic; synthetic organic chemicals: such as pesticides, pcb’s, and dioxin; radioactive substances: radium, radon, and reactor wastes; additives: chlorine, fluoride and coagulants. 


EPA Considers 100 Contaminants, Overlooks 200 More

The EPA says they regulate 100 contaminates in tap water. That is to say, they consider them. There is no policing of local water treatment plants and many contaminants exceed levels considered “safe.”


How can chemicals that cause anemia, nervous system effects in children and adults, bone disease (EPA attributes bone disease and mottled teeth to long-term exposure to fluoride), liver, kidney, central nervous system problems and increased risk of cancer be safe to drink?


Most developed countries do not poison their citizens with fluoride in an attempt to discard hazardous waste materials, thereby avoiding costly environmental regulation and pollution fines.


Why would any government, medical, or dental association condone and even embrace something that harms and possibly kills its citizens?


One word. Corruption. Corruption within government entities has given murderous carte blanche to the industrial food and chemical industries. They are being allowed to poison and maim Americans and others around the world because those in power are greedy and unscrupulous.

Fluoride: A Toxic Legacy


What is Fluoride? Fluoride is added to municipal drinking water in the form of hydrofluorosilicic acid. There are very few towns that do not fluoridate their water in the United States.


HFSA is a toxic waste substance (by-product) created from the creation processes of aluminum, fertilizer, steel and nuclear industries. Waste material so hazardous, it kills surrounding plants and animals.

Hydrofluosilicic Acid warning label.
The Campaign to Fluoridate America


There has been much debate over the efficacy and safety of fluoride for decades. Scientists have proven that it causes devastating health effects and many of them, including concerned citizens, have petitioned Congress to call for a moratorium on this insidious poison.


The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency admits fluoride is the result of discharge from chemical fertilizer and aluminum factories.

And that long-term use results in dental fluorosis and bone disease, yet this toxic by-product is allowed in many personal care products AND drinking water, often given to babies in formula and bottled water.

Back in the Day…

Fluoride was largely known to the public as the chief ingredient in pesticides, after the Edward Bernay’s campaign, it was widely hailed as a Modern Health Miracle.

At present, 97% of the western European population drinks non-fluoridated water.

Belgium quotes:


“This water treatment has never been of use in Belgium and will never be (we hope so) into the future. The main reason for that is the fundamental position of the drinking water sector that it is not its task to deliver medicinal treatment to people. This is the sole responsibility of health services.”

Corruption in Congress: Despite Overwhelming Evidence, Big Industry Continues Fluoride Poisoning


Despite overwhelming scientific data proving the harmful long term effects of water fluoridation, including a 28-year study from 1940 to 1968 revealing a significant increase in cancer mortality and many other documents confirming fluoride’s deleterious effects on humans and the environment, Congress dismissed compelling evidence and voted to allow the poisoning of American people and the environment. 


The Pittsburgh Case: Corrupt Judge Overlooks Compelling Evidence


The case was assigned to Judge John Flaherty… Expert witnesses from the National Cancer Institute, the National Academy of Sciences, the Royal Statistical Society, and the Royal College of Colleagues, as had occurred in Congress.


In short, this court was compellingly convinced of the evidence in favor of the plaintiffs.  Judge Flaherty entered a preliminary injunction. Since the facts of the case had been fully tried… …the constitutionality of imposed fluoridation, and for a permanent injunction, based on danger to public health.


The motion was about to be filed when raw power showed itself with lightning speed and impressive clout to limit the political damage. The Chief Judge of the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania quickly stayed the preliminary injunction, ignoring the facts judicially found, as if public safety were not an issue. Jurisdiction to enter the findings supporting the preliminary decree of November 16, 1978, was sustained on appeal shortly before Judge Flaherty was elevated to the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.


…findings of Judge Flaherty became highly influential abroad. In the British House of Lords, the Earl of Yarborough accurately summed up the meaning of the case:


Already this evening examples have been quoted of what occurred in America. What I read was rather different from the picture painted this evening. It was my understanding if the case quoted was the case in Allegheny (County) in Pennsylvania that it was found proven that fluoride was a danger to health. I know that there was some legal wrangle about jurisdiction but I thought, on the facts presented by a number of experts, that that was the finding and that the facts had not been challenged but merely the jurisdiction of the court.

Judges gavel, The Pittsburgh Case: Corrupt Judge Overlooks Compelling Evidence

So important was the meaning of this case that it also attracted the attention of an investigative commission of the Environment Ministry of Quebec… The commission had been diligently studying world literature on fluoridation for over a year… …recommended executive suspension of all efforts to enforce the mandatory fluoridation law of Quebec.  This recommendation was accepted, and the moratorium has now continued almost twenty years through no less than six governments…  


So well regarded is this report

that a standard ecology textbook, widely used in the secondary schools of Quebec, forthrightly acknowledges that fluoride in drinking water, as introduced through artificial fluoridation of public water supplies, is an environmental pollutant which caused cancer in man.

EPA Admits Fluoridation in Drinking Water Is a Convenient Solution for Discarding

Hazardous Waste 


EPA Water Administrator, Rebecca Hanmer, admits fluoride is a toxic by-product of the chemical fertilizer industry.

In her letter to Dr. Leslie A. Russell, D.M.D., Ms. Hanmer shares ambiguous statements regarding the EPA’s view of fluoride’s benefits and its hazards, admitting fluoride for fluoridation is an ideal environmental solution to a “long-standing problem” and by recovering the by-product fluorosilicic acid from fertilizer manufacturing, water and air pollution are minimized and water utilities have a low-cost source of fluoride available to them.

Citizens Petition in re: Use of Hydrofluosilicic Acid

in Drinking Water Systems of the United States


In a petition submitted to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

dated 4/22/2013 by J. William Hirzy, Ph.D. Chemist in Residence of the American University in Washington D.C. requesting that EPA take action to save the United States one billion and six billion annually. The action will simultaneously prevent hundreds of cases of lung and bladder cancer through the reduction in the amount of arsenic now being delivered to our citizens who drink water that is fluoridated with hydrofluorosilicic acid (HFSA).


By prohibiting the use of HFSA the Agency would mandate that citizens of the United States not be subjected to unnecessarily increased cancer risks- based on the Agency's own analysis of arsenic's carcinogenicity, that as a society we reduce the cost of medical care by a substantial amount, and that the public water systems of the United States no longer be used as extremely profitable hazardous waste disposal sites for the phosphate fertilizer manufacturing industry.  1st five pages from American University petition.

U.S. Government to Consider Lowering Levels of Fluoride in Drinking Water


In the news, the U.S. government admitted they’ve overdosed Americans on fluoride and may lower the levels of fluoride in drinking water. This update is a 2015 news headline and I’m just a little confused. Consider the facts on the CDC webpage NCHS Data Brief dated November 2010: www.cdc.gov The government has known for years that the incidence of dental fluorosis in America was on the rise and have now decided that the public should be aware of it. Despite this announcement, no efforts have been made to discontinue its use. Why? You decide.

Bottled Water is Not Safer Than Tap Water


Don’t be fooled by slick advertising. Bottled water can cost 10,000 times more per gallon than tap or well water. The scary thing is that the bottled water many of us have turned to as a supposed "safe alternative" may not be clean either. While bottled water may taste better, there are no assurances that it is free of contaminants. Most people don't realize that bottled water is largely unregulated! Many bottled waters with names that include words such as "mountain," "spring" and "crystal clear," are actually tap water that has been filtered through a very simple (and inadequate) filtration system to remove enough chlorine so that it tastes better.


Some bottled water companies are bold enough to admit it’s only tap water


and even print the city where it came from. Since you can't taste, see or smell most contaminants, they know you can't tell the difference.


Bottled water wastes energy, water and your tax dollars. It’s estimated that three liters of water is required to produce just one liter of bottled water. And your hard-earned money is often wasted on bottled water for state employees.  


Over 73 billion half-liter bottles of water are consumed in the US per year. Of those, 50 billion bottles end up in landfills or polluting our waterways.


What Can You Do?


1. Identify contaminants in your water and the appropriate filter you require.


2. Visit Our Suggested filters that are effective and affordable.


3. Invest in a reusable water bottle, skip the bottled water.


4. Tell your representative to stand up for clean, safe water and support the Safe Drinking Water Act!


Although this article is primarily about drinking water, we would be remiss not to include some information on fluoride’s role in oral care products. Parents especially need to be informed of the hazards of fluoride.

FDA Views Fluoride as a

Poisonous Drug and Mandates Toothpaste Warning Label


“Warnings: Keep out of reach of children under 6 years of age. If you accidentally swallow more than used for brushing, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center immediately.

Tooth paste box with the Drug Facts reading, Warning keep out of reach of children under 6 years of age. Poison Control Warning.

Despite well-documented studies showing fluoride is a dangerous toxic poison and ineffective at preventing dental decay, the ADA continues to promote fluoride to naive and vulnerable patients. The ADA, along with the American public are victims of nefarious propaganda spewed by the chemical and pharmaceutical industries.


If fluoride were safe, why would it require a warning/poisoning label? How many children swallow toothpaste on a daily basis?

One of the Inactive Ingredients in toothpaste is Trisodium Phosphate also known as


TSP is still in common use for the cleaning, degreasing and deglossing of walls prior to painting. TSP breaks the gloss of oil based paints and opens the pores of latex based paint providing a surface better suited for the adhesion of the subsequent layer.


The Revolving Door of Politics 

How They Get Away with Murder


The deceptive method used to make self-serving laws that harm the American public, and the environment has become so well known it can be found on Wikipedia.


Government officials from the FDA, USDA, and EPA are often former employees of the industrial food, medical and chemical industries. And vice versa, often exchanging roles of CEO to government official. Policies and laws are created to serve monetary interests of those involved, and their shareholders.
