Having access to clean water may be a fundamental human right, but it is far from a real reality in many towns and cities across our America.
Estimated that tens of millions of Americans across our vast land are still exposed to unsafe drinking water every year.
The U.S. drinking water is full of contaminants such as manufactured “forever chemicals”. The chemicals, resistant to breaking down in the environment, are known as perfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS. Based on an unpublished U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) data, more than 110 million Americans may be contaminated with PFAS have been linked to cancers, liver damage, low birth weight, and other health problems.
The EPA has known since 2001 that there was a problem with PFAS in our drinking water but has so far failed to do anything about it.
These are not the only way water can be contaminated. Radium, arsenic, lead, copper, chlorine, fluoride, industrial waste from spraying crops, mercury from industrial waste sites, microorganisms like bacteria and parasites that get in the water from human or animal feces, Radioactive substances can leech into groundwater and nitrates that are used in fertilizers.
How do you check your water?
Your county health department will help you test for bacteria or nitrates. You can find one in your area by calling the Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 800-426-4791 or visiting http://www.epa.gov/safewater/labs.
What can I do?
Well, for the one you can buy a water filtration system that is awesome.
This is what I use. Per its website.
( No, I am not making any profit off this)
Berkey Water Filter is the world’s most powerful and cost-effective personal water purification systems, providing reliable and user-friendly water purification at home or from any freshwater source. Our filters are gravity fed, so no need for electricity or water pressure. They will purify water from bacteria, viruses, chlorine, pesticides, herbicides, and other harmful toxins.
Each durable Black Berkey Water filter will last up to 3000 gallons (6000 gallons per set of 2). This is much longer than the majority of water filter solutions on the market.
We need treatments, medications, and procedures. Which all of these add to that price tag stapled to our ears. That hidden barcode on our forehead.
Berkey Water Filters will remove:
Bacteria like E. coli – Greater than 99.9999%
Chlorine – Removed to Undetectable Levels
Heavy Metals – Greater than 99.9%
Viruses – Greater than 99.9999%

Radiological – Greater than 95%
Perfluorochemicals (PFOA) – Greater than 99.9%
Toll-Free: (888) 330-9593
In addition, another interesting thing I came across is the chemicals used to make water drinkable slowly poisoned the land.
So, what happens when we become sick?
We need treatments, medications, and procedures.
Which all of these add to that price tag stapled to our ears.
That hidden barcode on our forehead.
The truth is bigger than we all are.
We are easily disposable to those in power.
The industry for profit over people is mean, nasty, greedy, and sinister. Everything I feared is true.
There is a war raging against humanity and our earth. We have been passively indoctrinated and so utterly pre-programmed that we do not ask the questions that need to ask. We have laid our trust completely in those in power or someone with a title behind their name. People conditioned blindly believing in things simply because enough people assured us it was true. Infectious diseases have been irradiated but chronic diseases are the new black plague of our modern time. This book is profoundly personal as it represents a mission brimming with meaning. As I reflect on extraordinary truths about our nation’s health history, current, and future, I also offer you wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. We must stop the atrocities if we want to become a healthier nation in the future. We must stop the atrocities if we want the human race to survive. I hope my voice and advocacy will continue to help lead the way and this book will make changes for current and future generations to come. No, I simply do not have all the answers but I have written plenty in this book to make you start questioning EVERYTHING.
What you are about to discover is terrifying.

I agree with filtering your drinking water & am do so as well. The best drinking water from the tap I drank in Zephyr hills, FL . This was in 1990. The town sits on an underground freshwater lake. I have since then learned how bad water from the tap truly is! Do NOT drink anything from tap or fountain drinks in NW Arkansas! The amount of chicken litter, turkey litter & unknowns are spread over the farmers fields! NW Arkansas is a Mecca of factories ranging from poultry processing plants to chemical plants where both have been caught dumping their leftovers in wet weather creeks & streams! After living there 12 years, I learned to hate it! When I go back for a visit, I drink only bottled water. If I don’t, within 2 weeks I am angry for no reason whatsoever! Personally I prefer alkaline water. The benefits for me have been amazing!
Yes, alkaline water is amazing! Make sure your bottled water is BPA free plus no extra added things. They sneak it in there. it’s absolutely disgusting how they poison us slowly. You’re on the right track!! keep on doing what your doing & researching.. We must share our knowledge..
