Toxic Chemicals in Your Water Could Be Wrecking Your Health

Toxic Chemicals in Your Water Could Be Wrecking Your Health | Nutrition Today | Scoop.it
Aside from fluoride, your drinking water may contain harmful disinfection byproducts, chemicals, and even pharmaceutical drugs that can damage your health.

Most tap water is contaminated with chemicals, radiation, disinfection byproducts, heavy metals, and pharmaceutical drugs which causes harm to your overall health.

 

The documentary "An Inconvenient Tooth" reveals the many problems associated with water fluoridation and why it's key to stop this practice of adding fluoride to the nation's water systems.

 

Numerous studies, ongoing studies show that fluoride is a dangerous, toxic poison that is bioaccumulating in your body while being ineffective at preventing dental decay.

 

Traces of 18 unregulated contaminants have been found by federal scientists in a third of water samples tested that were collected from 25 municipal water utilities in the U.S including perfluorinated compounds.(PFCs). PFCs are being detected in humans, including children.

 

A panel of scientists have concluded that there is "a probable link" between PFOA, a common PFC, in drinking water and high cholesterol, thyroid disease, testicular cancer, kidney cancer, and pregnancy induced hypertension.

 

These findings were based on people in mid-Ohio based communities whose water was contaminated with PFOA from a Dupont plant.

 

Did you know that non-stick cookware is a common source of these harmful chemicals? And contaminated drinking water is another major source. PFCs like PFOA and PFOS have the ability to disrupt your endocrine system and affect your sex hormones in animal (ugh) studies.

 

And the addition of contaminated fluoride to the water supply may be contributing to increased cancer rates in the U.S. because of the arsenic it contains.

 

Dr Mercola and this curator strongly recommend adding a whole house or at least a water filtration system in your kitchen and bathroom. You'll want to filter the water at the point of entry and the point of use.. This curator recommends Multipure water filtration, promoted by Environmental Working Group and Consumer Reports.

 

Drinking "living water" is also recommended. Read the full article for all the details. And take the time to watch this important documentary for your wellness.

Unless you've been hiding under a rock, you know by now that white  processed flour is deadly for your health.

 

And even if you're not having digestive issues or have been diagnosed with Celiac disease, gluten free flours can still benefit your health and add a distinct flavor change for your baking. This curater has been using buckwheat flour in her baking and she loves the flavor and many health benefits associated with buckwheat.

 

Buckwheat is really a seed, not a grain. It has a nice earthy flavor and combined with organic ground almonds, it makes a wonderful bread. It is high in fiber and protein (including all 8 essential amino acids), rich in trace minerals (magnesium and copper), low in fat and calories, and contains 2 flavanoids - quercitin and rutin, protecting you from cell inflammation and damage.

 

Read the full article for information on the other two gluten-free flours.
