Warning] Water Causing CANCER Across America
We have health risks coming at us from all angles.
We’re being handed record numbers of dangerous prescription medications. And the processed food we eat is loaded with nasty chemicals.
The LAST thing we’d expect is that our drinking water is making us sick, too.
I mean, the government has promised us it’s safe, right?
Well, not so fast…
Because new research has revealed that public drinking water is causing CANCER all over the nation.
It’s riddled with a deadly contaminant that’s been plaguing our drinking water since the 1960s.
Our government refuses to take action – so it’s up to us to protect ourselves.
New research has confirmed a disturbing link between increased nitrate levels in drinking water and the risk of developing colon and rectal cancer.
Even worse? This risk occurs at concentrations far below the current drinking water standard.
So, even the water we’re drinking now is putting us at risk.
You see, nitrates are a common byproduct of agricultural production, from the fertilizers used.
Those nitrates quickly seep into soil and contaminate groundwater and drinking water.
But since the 1960s, it has become clear that nitrate exposure is a very seriously medical issue.
Until now, the primary concern was for pregnant women and babies.
But as it turns out, nitrates in our drinking water have been causing cancer for decades.
Another study from Indonesia found a significant association between colorectal cancer diagnoses and areas with high levels of nitrates in the drinking water.
In another study, the same link was also discovered between waterborne nitrates and colorectal cancer.
So how is this happening?
Researchers found that nitrates develop into carcinogenic N-nitroso compounds once inside our bodies.
To prove this, they looked at the health data of 2.7 million adults and compared it with the water quality of the areas they lived in between 1978 and 2011.
The results revealed elevated cases of colorectal cancer – all in patients with higher nitrate exposure.
But it gets worse…
The research also revealed that drinking water with nitrate levels above 3.87 mg/L already holds an increased risk of colorectal cancer – and that number is well below the current standard of 50 mg/L.
It’s time we reconsidered our drinking water standards.
And while you can call your Congressmen or the Environmental Protection Agency and encourage them to take action, we all know how long that could take.
The best thing you can do for yourself and your loved ones todayis to put filters on your faucets.
Or you can get a water filter pitcher for your refrigerator.
They’re inexpensive and they protect you from all kinds of contaminants.
