(NaturalHealth365) More and more people seem to be adding slices and squeezes of lemon and lime to their drinking water these days – and for good reason. When added to pure, filtered water, fresh lemon and lime create a refreshing, flavorful beverage that is a truly healthful alternative to syrupy sodas and sugary juices.
(Collective-Evolution) Fluoride’s neurotoxicity has been the subject of academic debate for decades, and now a matter of increasingly impassioned controversy among the general public, as well. From ‘conspiracy theories’ about it being first used in drinking water in Russian and Nazi concentration camps to chemically lobotomize captives, to its now well-known IQ lowering properties, to its ability…
Chlorpyrifos—described by some as “the most dangerous pesticide you’ve never heard of”—is an insect-killing organophosphate. Organophosphates trace their roots back to Nazi-era IG Farben nerve gases; contemporary scientists still describe the compounds as “junior-strength nerve agents” that have a mechanism of action comparable to sarin. Dow Chemical—the company that helped bring the world mustard gas during World War I and napalm and Agent Orange during the Vietnam war—is the manufacturer of chlorpyrifos-containing insecticides.
(NaturalHealth365) You may not think to include fluoride among the list of toxins that you need to minimize or eliminate. After all, most conventionally-trained dentists and public health officials tell us that fluoride is “good for our health” – right? Well, not really – especially when you get the facts and truly understand all the fluoride dangers that exist.

Fluoridation is the addition of an industrial compound to the public drinking water for the purpose of altering the consumer’s oral health. Municipalities that add fluoride to their water supplies do so based on a “one dose fits all” approach. This blanket approach fails to address the smaller size of infants and children and the larger proportions of water and other fluoridated beverages they drink. Significantly, a formula-fed infant drinks its weight in water every three to four days, resulting in the most vulnerable members of the population consuming by far the largest dose of fluoride

(NaturalHealth365) Uranium. Radium. Arsenic. These chemicals are known to cause cancer. Now, thanks to a shocking study from the Environmental Working Group (EWG), we now know that these and other harmful contaminants are found in California’s public tap water.
The study was just published in the latest edition of the peer-reviewed journal Environmental Health. EWG’s findings are also consistent with at least one other study out of North Carolina. The major takeaway? Consumption of this tap water is tied to a stunning number of cancer cases over the course of a typical generation.
