STUDY.......US Water contains LARGE Amount of CARCINOGEN...
[link to www.greenwala.com] 1 hr 41 mins ago
WASHINGTON (AFP) – A US environmental group has found that drinking water in 35 American cities contains hexavalent chromium, a probable carcinogen, The Washington Post reported Sunday.

The study by the Environmental Working Group -- the first nationwide analysis measuring the presence of the chemical in US water systems -- is to be made public on Monday, the daily reported.

The group found hexavalent chromium in the tap water of 31 out of 35 cities sampled. Of those, 25 had levels that exceeded the goal proposed in California, which has been trying aggressively to reduce the chemical in its water supply.

The federal Environmental Protection Agency is considering whether to set a limit for hexavalent chromium in tap water. The agency is reviewing the chemical after the National Institutes of Health, deemed it a "probable carcinogen" in 2008.

Hexavalent chromium has long been known to cause lung cancer when inhaled, and scientists recently found evidence that it causes cancer in laboratory animals when ingested. It has been linked in animals to liver and kidney damage as well as leukemia, stomach cancer and other cancers.

This is why, and I am not sure if it helps, but I don't drink tap or bottled water. I only juice organic cucumbers and melons for drinks. I don't use water to cook. I do use it to clean. I of course also take a shower, but not hot to limit the stream.

Lucky y'all have private healthcare to bankrupt you when the water makes you ill, they probably pollute the water themselves to boost business.

Actually they sort of do.. there's many prescription pills that we excrete back into the water systems that can't be filtered out with the current water filtration practices :(

Big pharmo is killing us all .. even the ones that don't knowingly partake..

I use a Berkey filter system. No more worry. The filtered water is fantastic and the system is the best money I ever spent.
