Are You Entrusting Your Health To The Government?

 The federal clean water act (CWA) established in 1972 has listed 126 chemicals that are all known to cause cancer in humans, referred to as "priority pollutants". This list of priority pollutants was produced in 1977 and despite the fact that there are over 1000 new chemicals being released to the environment each year, the Clean Water Act does not cover them. They determined years ago that it would be too costly to test that many chemicals determine their individual or collective impact on nature or human health.

In just considering the original 126 priority pollutants, the exponential possibility of various combinations of these individual pollutants are astronomical and virtually impossible to test every potential combination and quantity of compound chemicals.

This isn't hard to believe when you consider there are hundreds of pharmaceutical companies mixing chemicals to produce legal drugs that are later found to be actually killing people and these are chemicals that have been tested first.

So when you consider the number of chemicals and combinations of chemicals found in the water we drink, the air we breathe and the food we eat, each of us are a chemical laboratory mixing and testing untold quantities and combinations of chemicals on ourselves.

So with this in mind, it's not surprising that the American Cancer Society's estimates for bladder cancer in the U.S. in 2012:

  • approx 73,000 new cases of bladder cancer diagnosed
  • approx 14,000 deaths.
Bladder cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the US.

It is a well-known fact that most Americans are dehydrated from not drinking adequate amounts of water (8 to 10 glasses per day). As a result, toxins and chemicals are allowed to remain and mix together for extended periods of time, since the bladder is not being flushed properly as a result of drinking adequate amounts of water.

Much like the bladder which is a holding place for liquid waste, the colon is much the same for solid waste (feces) and where water and minerals are absorbed. Large quantities of water are needed for this process and for the waste material to move unimpaired to the canal, but if a person is dehydrated by not drinking adequate amounts of water, the waste material cannot move freely through the colon and consequently become constipated. As a result, toxins bacteria in chemicals remain in the colon, which can result in serious illness, disease and overtime result in colon cancer.

Cancer of the colon starts in the tissues and are "adrenocarcinomas" (cancers that begin in cells that produce mucus and other fluids necessary for absorption). During long periods of constipation, these cells are subject to concentrations of toxins chemicals and bacteria which can result in adrenocarcinomas cells.

One out of three adults over 50 will contract colon cancer

Estimated new cases plus deaths from colon cancer in the U.S. in 2012:
  • New cases: 103,170 (colon); 40,290 (rectal)
  • Deaths: 51,690 (colon + rectal combined)
Since we obviously cannot rely on the government to protect us from our toxic environment, each of us need to take full responsibility for the type of water we drink and the food we eat. It is not only imperative that we drink pure clean healthy water, but also plenty of it. Americans do not drink enough water but rather substitutes such as soft drinks, coffee, tea, sports drinks, fruit drinks, beer, alcohol, wine etc.

Conclusion: Next to air, clean, pure, water is the most important element on earth in relationship to our health and longevity- change your health and your life drink more H2O more often.
