A new study was just released that correlates exposure to arsenic in well water with a lower IQ. Who put arsenic in the water?
Arsenic occurs naturally in groundwater, which means that people who get their water from wells may be consuming it. To make matters worse, inorganic arsenic was used for farming purposes for years and, although it has been banned for use in the U.S. for 2 decades, contaminants can remain in the soil for 40 years or more. It is no secret that whatever is in the soil will ultimately end up in the water supply. In fact, ground water contamination is a killer and USGS researchers recommend that people who rely on wells invest in a filtration system.
I talk to a lot of people about water and it never ceases to amaze me how little most know (and understand) about it. Most people who rely on well water for their homes have a false sense of security about the safety of their water. Apparently if it’s clear and clean-looking and it passes their “taste test” they believe that it’s safe and healthy. Nothing could be farther from the truth.
I live in rural Virginia and I get my water from a well. The land surrounding my home was farmed for many years before it was sold off and developed. Undoubtedly arsenic was applied to the fields for pesticide purposes for a long time and when my well was tested I was shocked at the level of arsenic found in my tap water!
Water is the most vital nutrient for the human body and it’s nothing to take for granted. Whether you rely on municipal water, well water or commercially bottled water you MUST take action to make it safe for you and your family. My action involves purification and ionization. Today my family has access to the safest, healthiest (and best tasting) water available anywhere.
What about you? Will you be taking action to assure that you have safe, healthy drinking water or are you content to keep your head in the sand? Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
