6 Million Americans Are Drinking Contaminated Water Linked to Cancer

More than 6 million Americans are drinking water polluted with highly fluorinated chemicals.

The most-studied chemicals in the class are linked to kidney and testicular cancer, thyroid disease, decreased sperm quality, high cholesterol, decreased immune function in children, and other serious health problems.

Highly fluorinated chemicals are found in fire-fighting foam used by military and domestic airports, furniture, carpets, outdoor gear, clothing, cosmetics, cookware and food packaging. The chemicals make their way from manufacturing facilities, consumer products and fire-fighting activities into the air, water, and food, and then into humans.

The health impact of these chemicals, which are increasingly being found in our drinking water, is very concerning. Some scientists say we are carrying out an unintended chemical experiment on our population.

  2. Interesting article but contaminated ground water is a global issue not just a US problem.

    In survival water terms, the best you can do is reduce the problem to manageable levels of pollution (whatever those are). Mostly that’s all about finding a good enough source of water to allow to to process it.
    After all sea water is polluted to hell, as for rain water or even harvesting dew, (LOL)
    Still not safe!

    Trying to buy an “all in one solution” which can used in the home (or field) to filter out all chemicals and rubbish is expensive, the gold star of filtration being reverse osmosis (RO).

    Worst bit about that?
    RO on it’s own still can’t handle all the basics or ‘exotics’ of the pollution and biological world. Thus other things need to be added to the chain of processing.

    The water needs a good pre-screening / filtering through turbidity filters, a damn good boiling or passing through silver loaded micro ceramic filtration for biological contamination, then activated carbon filters for the more common nasties of the chemical /heavy metal range. Only then can you think about RO.

    But even after all of that nothing is 100% effective.
    It’s just risk reduction despite what the adverts promise.

    In short, unless you want to play with making your own water by mixing hydrogen and oxygen in 2:1 and lighting it with a very, very long taper, you’re stuffed.

    Reading up on contaminated ground water the scale of contamination is so huge across the world that most ‘we live in the real world scientists’ say it can’t be done.
    So that’s one in the eye for the “we write open letters” brigade.

    The most suggested is to use even more chemicals on contamination that has existed for decades. Fighting fire with fire sort of thing.
    Only that’s a long term view not a quick fix and as dangerous as hell as if something went wrong, the population would be supping on yet another chemical only much stronger than the problem!

    Here we use gravity fed combined ceramic and charcoal filters and basically accept that some percentage of what we drink is a cocktail of nastiness.
    Real world thinking in a world where your 6 million is but a fraction of all those who drink crappy water.

Merry Christmas from Mountain Republic!
Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.

The control of information is something the elite always does, particularly in a despotic form of government. Information, knowledge, is power. If you can control information, you can control people.
