New Killer In Our Water?

Posted by Rayne Water

Natural News: Toxic shock: California allows up to one thousand times more glyphosate in drinking water than needed to cause breast cancer in women Learn more:[/caption] It may be something that they don’t want you to know, but there is a new danger lurking in our tap water here in California called glyphosate. Known to be dangerous to human health, the state still allows levels which are above and beyond the risk of creating cancer cells in breast tissue. Glyphosate is a synthetic compound that is a nonselective systemic herbicide, particularly effective against perennial weeds. While it may kill unwanted weeks, it may also be killing woman by increasing their risk of breast cancer tremendously. Recent studies have found links between low levels of exposure to the herbicide and the proliferation of cancer cells. Without the protection of a home drinking water system, you may be exposed to deadly contamination without even knowing it. Naturalnews.com author Mike Adams recently exposed the information published in Food and Chemical Toxicology, where the study is entitled, “Glyphosate induces human breast cancer cells growth via estrogen receptors.” The bottom line? Glyphosate multiplies the proliferation of breast cancer cells by 500% to 1300% even at exposures of just a few parts per trillion. Even the minimal exposure should be regulated by federal and state standards at levels that do not produce such a serious risk for cancer. The problem is that in California, the allowable exposure level was nearly 50% higher than the federal EPA level. That’s right – the state standard is much higher the EPA’s standards putting you at risk for health conditions linked to consumption of foods or tap water contaminated with glyphosate. As the article explains, other recently published studies demonstrate glyphosate’s toxicity to cell lines, aquatic life, food animals, and humans. What is known as the “parts per trillion” study shows cancer cell proliferation being caused by ultra-low concentrations of glyphosate. Scientific studies report the dangers of genetically modified crops and their related chemical herbicides. Would you filter your tap water if you knew your water was contaminated with this herbicide? Consider our drinking water filters as an option for quality drinking water and eco-friendly technology. Leading the market, we use the most advanced filtration technology to effectively remove contaminants both regulated and unregulated from the tap to provide your household with a consistent flow of great-tasting, high-quality drinking water. What happens next? The ultimate goal is for California’s legislature to lower state standards for allowable glyphosate levels. But without the funding and support, this is not a short-term goal. Households should take matters into their own hands by installing a home drinking water system and avoid deadly contaminants once and for all. To read the article, click here.]]>

Softened Water Shown to Reduce Psoriasis Irritation

The purpose of World Psoriasis Day on October 29 is a global event that looks to give an international, powerful voice to the 125 million people living with psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis. Through awareness, education and other related programs, those living with psoriasis may find ways to love happier, healthier, and more comfortably through the latest treatment options.

World Psoriasis Day

Psoriasis support groups perform activities all over the world to raise awareness about psoriasis and give people with psoriasis the attention and consideration they deserve. There are tricks that you can do to help reduce outbreaks and irritating conditions, but perhaps the most useful and effective tip is to drink more water and higher quality water with a drinking water system and bathe in softened water from a water softener.

What is Psoriasis?

According to the World Psoriasis Day website, it is “a chronic, autoimmune disease that appears on the skin. It occurs when the immune system sends out incorrect signals that speed up the growth of skin cells. Oftentimes, you will have too many skin cells in one location, causing swelling, flaking and dryness. It can also be itchy, red, sore and very tender.” There is also a crippling form of arthritis, called psoriatic arthritis.

What are the symptoms of Psoriasis?

Nearly three percent of the world’s population endure the symptoms of psoriasis. Not only do they have to deal with constant pain from cracking and bleeding skin, but they also live with the humiliation of continuous shedding of scaly skin which can often be found on clothes or their seats. What would be worse – living with the condition itself or living with the fact that there is limited treatment and no cure?

How soft water helps people with Psoriasis?

Using filtered or softened water has been shown to also reduce the effects. Keeping your skin hydrated and contaminant-free will instantly remove toxins and also keep the skin from drying out as much. Chlorine is a chemical that may cause irritation and can further dry out the already over-dry skin that normally accompanies psoriasis. Chlorine, too, can be removed by a water filter. With a water softener, hard minerals like calcium and magnesium are effectively removed. These minerals often irritate the psoriasis and the skin. Our water treatment systems support you and give your condition the attention it deserves. Treating your drinking water and that which you shower or bath in can help you feel better. A whole-house water system  has multiple benefits – which is most important to you?
