Contaminants found included gasoline, solvents, personal care products, detergents, fragrances, herbicides (including atrazine and 2, 4-D), insecticides (including insect repellant), disinfectant byproducts (including chloroform), plastics, fire retardants, prescription drugs used for humans and animals and manufacturing additives.
Most people just think about disease-causing organisms when they think about whether water is potable (drinkable) or not, but this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to "safe" drinking water. Let's elaborate. Pesticides, prescription drugs, veterinary drugs and purposely added fluoride are major concerns, and the EPA, CDC and FDA are well aware, but do nothing to put an end to it all. The term "waterborne disease" takes on a whole new meaning when you begin addressing all the cases of cancer and dementia in this country, so yes, we will "go there."
For starters, the type of fluoride used in tap water across America today, sodium fluoride, is an industrial byproduct that doubles as insecticide, which was first used by the Nazis to keep the Jews weak and unable to rebel in the concentration camps of World War II. This is NOT the same as the naturally occurring kind of fluoride that dentists across America claim helps strengthen teeth (a claim that's still never been scientifically proven).
Sodium fluoride (NaF) is a known carcinogen that causes cancer, calcification of the pineal gland and bone marrow and lower IQ in humans, especially developing children. The US government and regulatory agencies are well-aware of all of this knowledge. This is no "conspiracy theory." In fact, in a 1986 report, the annual worldwide consumption of NaF was estimated to be several million tons, so just imagine where we are today.
Roundup is the most popular, widely used and sold weed killer in the world, and that is not a good thing. Not only has glyphosate been proven to be carcinogenic to humans, but that's just 50 percent of the makeup of Roundup. The other "inactive" ingredients literally help glyphosate permeate plant and human tissues, causing long-term toxicity and health issues that are not prevented at the water "treatment" plants.
Also, there's a slimy growth inside water pipes that contributes to over 7 million illnesses and 6,000 deaths every year in the USA. So much for all that "water safety" talk. This according to a CDC study published just three years ago in the journal Emerging Infectious Diseases, regarding waterborne disease. Inside US plumbing systems that support drinking, sanitation and hygiene is a glue-like mixture of fungi and bacteria called biofilm.
This biofilm protects pathogens in the water from disinfectants, sickening and killing thousands of Americans every year. Meanwhile, the CDC and EPA promote drinking US water straight from the tap, as does Hollywood, if you ever notice in shows and movies they always model just that.
