Scientists have discovered Pharmaceutical Drugs and Toxins in the Water Supply,
Are you drinking this potentially dangerous cocktail.
Water treatment plants are set up to eliminate certain types of waste materials,
such as pesticides, herbicides and heavy metals from the water supply. They
cannot however cope, neither are they equipped to deal with pharmaceuticals,
as you will probably know, up to 90% of drugs that are taken in to our bodies,
is eliminated by the kidneys and urine, so whatever passes through our bodies,
eventually end up back at the water treatment plant and then in to our water
Pharmaceuticals are just one of a huge number of toxins and pollutants that
are present in the water supply, they can even contain the residue of DDT, which
does not break down for a very long time. There can be drugs which could react
adversely with drugs that you are currently taking, the list of pollutants in
water supplies seem to be growing all the time.
It was brought to light initially by scientists in Germany in 1997 and published
in the Journal, Chemosphere, when it was found that there were pharmaceutical
drugs in the water supply for Berlin.
A number of researchers agree that the concentration of antibiotics in our
water supply is currently 1000 times higher than it was in 1997, High enough
to cause the mutation of e-coli bacteria in to strains that are resistant to
the normal antibiotics, this has already occurred in the United States and elsewhere.
When e-coli was first found at water treatment plants, Time Magazine cover,
portrayed e-coli running out of a kitchen tap or faucet, it has also been found
in swimming pools.
A serious threat to public health could develop if the e-coli became resistant
to most antibiotics through mutation. The continued use, or misuse of antibiotics
can in time only lead to the ability of our Immune System to see us through
any serious medical condition. If your Immune System is functioning efficiently,
you will stand a fighting chance. In todays environment, with so many
toxins, pollutants and other threats to good health, it will make sense to not
only eat a healthy diet, but also take nutritional supplements especially designed
to boost your immune system.
Evidence of pollution in the water supply is everywhere, a scientist discovered
in Lake Mead, which supplies southern Nevada and northern Mexico that the water
contained so much estrogen; it was causing male fish to produce female egg protein.
Another scientist discovered that the broad class of antibiotics in drinking
water has a toxic effect on human DNA. It was also found additional cases of
medication resistant bacteria are continually being reported. The reason? If
bacteria encounter just enough antibiotics to irritate it, without killing it
off, the bacteria will mutate and become resistant to that antibiotic.
Please remember that you not only need water to live, but you also need it
to help you feel well. Headaches, fatigue weakness and other health conditions
may result from not receiving sufficient supplies of water. The more that you
push your system, the more body fat that you have, then it is only natural that
the more water your body will need to function efficiently.
