Events causing illness

-The Flint Water Crisis was declared a federal emergency January 16, 2016.  The problem is lead pipes were used when the foundations were being built.  Dangerous levels of lead have been and are still being pumped through those pipes.

-Lead pipes are a ticking time bomb in America.  High levels of lead have been reported in other American cities as well.  We can assume that the more attention this problem receives, the more lead poisoning we will find hurting Americans.  Warren, Pennsylvania; Goat Island, Texas; Baltimore, MD; Cleveland, OH; and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania have all tested high in lead content.  Esquire has reported that more than 33 US cities could soon be in crisis, because of lead.

-In 2016 over 100,000 residents in the counties of Lawrence and Morgan Alabama were advised to not drink their water.  The reason for the alarm was that there were too many PFOS and PFOA contaminants in the water.  The town of Anniston, AL (just outside former Fort McClellan has almost become a ghost town.  Many people in the area have left or are sick due to the quality of drinking water.  Fort McClellan, AL was were the US Army and DOW Chemicals tested many chemical weapons.

-Chances are, if you are drinking municipal water in the United States you are being poisoned.  Please consider purifying your own water or collecting rainwater; you can find out how to do that below.

American cities with documanted water toxicity:

 

-Jacksonville, Fla. (JEA)

Located on the northeast coast of Florida, Jacksonville is the state's largest city. According to EWG, 23 different toxic chemicals were found in Jacksonville's water supply. The chemicals most frequently discovered in high volumes were trihalomethanes, which consist of four different cleaning byproducts — one of which is chloroform. Many trihalomethanes are believed to be carcinogenic. Over the five-year testing period, unsafe levels of trihalomethanes were detected during each of the 32 months of testing, and levels deemed illegal by the EPA were detected in 12 of those months. During at least one testing period, trihalomethane levels were measured at nearly twice the EPA legal limit. Chemicals like arsenic -and lead were also detected at levels exceeding health guidelines.

-San Diego (San Diego Water Department)

Located on the Pacific in Southern California, San Diego is the country's eighth-largest city. According to California's Department of Public Health, San Diego's drinking water system contained eight chemicals exceeding health guidelines as well as two chemicals that exceeded the EPA's legal limit. In total, 20 contaminants have been found. One of those in excess of the EPA limit was trihalomethanes. The other was manganese, a natural element that's a byproduct of industrial manufacturing and can be poisonous to humans.

-North Las Vegas (City of North Las Vegas Utilities Department)

North Las Vegas's water supply mostly comes from groundwater and the Colorado River, and doesn't contain chemicals exceeding legal limits. However, the water supply did contain 11 chemicals that exceeded health guidelines set by federal and state health agencies. The national average for chemicals found in cities' water exceeding health guidelines is four. North Las Vegas had a total of 26 contaminants, compared with the national average of eight. The water contained an extremely high level of uranium, a radioactive element.

-Omaha (Metropolitan Utilities District)

The land-locked city of Omaha gets its water from the Missouri and Platte Rivers, as well as from groundwater. Of the 148 chemicals tested for in Omaha, 42 were detected in some amount, 20 of which were above health guidelines, and four of those were detected in illegal amounts. These were atrazine, trihalomethanes, nitrate and nitrite, and manganese. Atrazine is an herbicide that has been shown to cause birth defects. Nitrate is found in fertilizer, and nitrite is used for curing meat. Manganese was detected at 40 times the legal limit during one month of testing.

 

Poisoned by policy

-Houston (City of Houston Public Works)

Houston is the fourth-largest U.S. city. It gets its water from sources such as the Trinity River, the San Jacinto Rivers and Lake Houston. Texas conducted 22,083 water quality tests between 2004 and 2007 on Houston's water supply, and found 18 chemicals that exceeded federal and state health guidelines, compared to the national average of four. Three chemicals exceeded EPA legal health standards, against the national average of 0.5 chemicals. A total of 46 pollutants were detected, compared to the national average of eight. The city water has contained illegal levels of alpha particles, a form of radiation. Similarly, haloacetic acids, from various disinfection byproducts, have been detected.

 

-Reno (Truckee Meadows Water Authority)

Reno gets most of its water from the Truckee River, which flows from Lake Tahoe. Of the 126 chemicals tested for in Reno over four years, 21 were discovered in the city's water supply, eight of which were detected in levels above EPA health guidelines, and three of these occurred in illegal amounts. These were manganese, tetrachloroethylene and arsenic. Tetrachloroethylene is a fluid used for dry cleaning and as an industrial solvent, and is deemed a likely carcinogenic by the International Agency for Research on Cancer. Arsenic is a byproduct of herbicides and pesticides, and is extremely poisonous to humans. During at least one month of testing, arsenic levels were detected at roughly two and a half times the legal limit.

-Riverside County, Calif. (Eastern Municipal Water District)

Riverside county is a 7,200-square-mile area located north of San Diego, part of California's "Inland Empire." The county is primarily located in desert territory, and so the water utilities draw their supply from the Bay Delta, which is miles to the north. The water in Riverside County contained 13 chemicals that exceeded recommended health guidelines over the four tested years, and one that exceeded legal limits. In total, 22 chemicals were detected in the district's water supply. The contaminant exceeding legal health standards was tetrachloroethylene.

-Las Vegas (Las Vegas Valley Water District)

Located in the Mojave desert, Las Vegas gets its water from the Colorado River through miles-long intake pipes. While its water doesn't exceed the legal limits for any single type of contaminant, Las Vegas's water has a large range of pollutants. Of the 125 chemicals tested for over a five-year period, 30 were identified in some amount, and 12 were found in levels that exceeded EPA health guidelines. These chemicals included radium-226, radium-228, arsenic and lead. The two radium isotopes are commonly found around uranium deposits and are hazardous to human health, even in small quantities.

-Riverside, Calif. (City of Riverside Public Utilities)

Riverside, with a population slightly greater than 300,000, gets most of its drinking supply from groundwater. Regulators in the city of Riverside, which has a different water-treatment facility than the rest of Riverside County, detected 15 chemicals that exceeded health guidelines and one that exceeded legal standards. In total, 30 chemicals were found. Since 2004, the water has almost consistently been riddled with alpha particle activity, traces of bromoform (a form of trihalomethane) and uranium, causing an unusually unhealthy water supply.

-Pensacola, Fla. (Emerald Coast Water Utility)

Located on the Florida Panhandle along the Gulf of Mexico, Pensacola is Florida's westernmost major city. Analysts say it has the worst water quality in the country. Of the 101 chemicals tested for over five years, 45 were discovered. Of them, 21 were discovered in unhealthy amounts. The worst of these were radium-228 and -228, trichloroethylene, tetrachloroethylene, alpha particles, benzine and lead. Pensacola's water was also found to contain cyanide and chloroform. The combination of these chemicals makes Pensacola's water supply America's most unhealthy.

 

Dr. Strangelove - Water Fluoridation

 

Water Fluoridation

We may be being lied to when it comes to Water Fluoridation. We were told and still are told that Water Fluoridation is good for our teeth. There is an overwhelming amount of evidence that fluoride is very harmful to your health and not even that great for teeth.

So what is Fluoride? Fluoride is a mineral in the ground, that is sometimes mined for mining and industrial uses.  When you find it in mining and industry, it usually can be found in the waste areas.  That's what we drink in the USA.  Let's remember that liquid fluoride is used in Thorium reactors as well.

Water Harvesting

Water Harvesting can be beneficial for multiple reasons.  Collected rainwater can be used for showers, toilets, laundry, gardens, drinking water, etc.  Some US states have made this practice illegal, so check your local laws or use your best judgement.

-Is rainwater harvesting legal in your state?  HERE are the state laws.

So, what is the justification for states to say if you can collect rainwater or not?  I'm sure the real reason is not being told directly, but it is because of waterways and aquifers.  States that limit or main water harvesting illegal, justify this by saying the water in your yard will not reach waterways or aquafers.  However, Colorado did a study and found that on 3% of the rainwater hitting your property makes it to these places.

Steam and Nuclear Power

 

What do Nuclear Power Plants do?  They create steam, yeah that's right, steam.  Just like coal, oil, and natural gas plants.  Nuclear power plants boil water using Uranium rods that make turbines turn from the steam.  The turning of the turbines creates electricity.  THis process is called Fission.

The advantage of this over coal, oil, and natural gas is that it doesn't emit CO2 into the atmosphere.  However, there is a very big problem with both types of Uranium used.  U-235 and U-238 are the types of Uranium used for Nuclear power plants.

So why is this Uranium bad?  Refining of the U-238 creates Plutonium, which is used to make Nuclear weapons.  Nuclear weapons are a problem for everyone living and unborn on this planet.

Is there a better solution?  Yes, there is and it's called Thorium.  Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors is what they're called.  Remember the word Fluoride for the Health & Science section of this page. Thorium is one of the most abundant nuclear elements on the planet and doesn't create Plutonium as a byproduct.

So why don't we see Thorium Power Plants?  There are a few reasons and it mostly has to do with the times nuclear power was created.  The cost of creating new Thorium power plants is very expensive, but worth the money, time and effort in the end.  Would you want to give up billions of dollars by switching to Thorium if you controlled a Uranium market?

Thorium has attracted popularity, so there are Thorium plants being built as we speak.  There are actually 32 countries that either; have Thorium plants, are building plants, or that have the plans to build them. If we have to see nuclear power in the future it is best that it's Thorium.
