Water Quality

The other day, a colleague of mine sent me over the results from a recent study that sghows a link between higher body mass index (BMI) in toddlers, and the mothers' prenatal exposure to environmental pollutants, such as pesticides found on the foods we eat [1]. The study, conducted by the journal, Environmental Health Perspectives, concluded that there is a direct link between prenatal chemical exposure and birth weight/length. Sadly, this is yet another example of the growing amount of scientific data supporting the knowledge that toxic chemicals are all […]

Every day we are bombarded with toxic compounds. The air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, and even the homes we live in – all have some level of toxic contamination. It’s just the unavoidable nature of our industrialized world; there’s almost no safe haven. You can’t eliminate every point of exposure but you can reduce and control it. And by reducing your exposure to toxins, you’ll help reduce the effect they have on your health. (more…)

The public water supply doesn’t just provide drinking water, it's also the water we use to take a shower, water our plants, and wash our pets. Water is essential, but the majority of our water supply is full of nasty compounds that are slowly destroying our health, whether we realize it or not. Without the proper filtration system in place, you are at risk of being exposed to a large supply of chemical toxins, including pesticides, pharmaceutical medications, and even animal excrements.

Fluoride, a questionable chemical added to drinking water and toothpaste for the oft-repeated goal of preventing tooth decay, may be responsible for certain childhood mental disorders, according to research from the Harvard School of Public Health. The researchers looked at various chemicals that children are regularly exposed to and found that several, including fluoride, are directly related to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and other mental issues.[1] (more…)

Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is an ugly process that drives highly-pressurized chemicals, water, and sand into underground rock. Usually looking for oil or natural gas, fracking operations leave their stain on the environment, but the human price might even be higher. Think of it this way: imagine dropping a couple of tablespoons of red dye into an Olympic-sized pool. Now instead of dye, think about a common fracking mixture: a cocktail of benzene, toluene, and xylene. Do you want to be exposed to this stuff? (more…)
