Over 300 Pollutants in U.S. Tap Water

Vatic Note: Remember we covered water on this blog very very extensively, not only how scientifically water is important to our bodies, but also our DNA and consciousness which makes us who we are and makes us "human". Then we covered the Jesse Ventura program on what they are doing to our fresh water, that once you see how important water is to us, then you begin to realize what they are doing is dangerous and downright threatening to our health and our lives. I have to ask, "why"? Is it depopulation?

We certainly covered that as well in depth, but it doesn't matter why, it matters that we quit privatizing our public services and take control back again so we can be assured our lives are not at risk. This is especially true for our babies and our children and elderly. REMEMBER the movie Erin Brockovitch ?  She found Chromium 6 in the public water supply and sued like crazy and won,  well, guess what?  Chromium 6 is in the water supply of innumerable city water systems right now as we speak.  This is genuinely a crime now, since it was proven in court that it literally can kill people,  which means they know about it and are doing it anyway regardless of the damage to our health, so now its with intent to do that harm, that its been put into the water.  THAT FACT ALONE, MAKES THE ACT OF ADDING IT TO OUR WATER, CRIMINAL.  Seriously,  and the link above is to Erin Brockovitch own web site.  I suggest you go visit it.

I believe its just another way for multiple agendas, they are trying to kill us off, especially seniors and "useless feeders" but also to help the chemical companies make a killing in not only our lives but in profits. Stock markets rule now, and humans are secondary. That will continue UNLESS WE CHOOSE TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.   This was fascinating in providing information we did not know.  Its worth the time to read and to check out all the cities.  By the way there are doggone near as many in bottled water as there are in the tap water, so shop carefully for bottled water. 

Over 300 Pollutants in U.S. Tap Water
by admin, Environmental Working group,
Dec 2010

Since 2004, testing by water utilities has found 315 pollutants in the tap water Americans drink, according to an Environmental Working Group (EWG) drinking water quality analysis of almost 20 million records obtained from state water officials.

More than half of the chemicals detected are not subject to health or safety regulations and can legally be present in any amount. The federal government does have health guidelines for others, but 49 of these contaminants have been found in one place or another at levels above those guidelines, polluting the tap water for 53.6 million Americans. The government has not set a single new drinking water standard since 2001.

Water utilities spend 19 times more on water treatment chemicals every year than the federal government invests in protecting lakes and rivers from pollution in the first place.

Based on these data, EWG believes the federal government has a responsibility to do a national assessment of drinking water quality. It should establish new safety standards, set priorities for pollution prevention projects, and tell consumers about the full range of pollutants in their water.

Because it has not, EWG launched a 3-year project to create the largest drinking water quality database in existence. This user-friendly, interactive resource covers 48,000 communities in 45 states and the District of Columbia.

Cities with the Best Water

EWG rated big city (population over 250,000) water utilities based on three factors: the total number of chemicals detected since 2004; the percentage of chemicals found of those tested; and the highest average level for an individual pollutant, relative to legal limits or national average amounts, including for the most common pollutants (disinfection byproducts, nitrate and arsenic).

(VN: see link below for top and lowest rated water Utilities , check out your city, and then check out if the water is public or privatized,  you will see a correlation between the two.)
