Arsenic ~ The Sleeping Giant

FAUCET
ARE WE OVERLOOKING THE REAL ARSENIC RISK? Posted by Jim Barlow – Oregon on March 10, 2015

“No one has touched on the link between arsenic on the surface and in groundwater,” says Qusheng Jin. Geologist Qusheng Jin had “a wild hypothesis” in 2008 that a bacterial process was at work in an arsenic-contaminated aquifer in Oregon’s southern Willamette Valley.

In a paper published in the journal Nature Geoscience, Jin’s team shows the process is in play and concludes the practice of just monitoring total arsenic levels for groundwater safety is not enough.
They suggest organic arsenic forms, generally considered less toxic, should be looked at more closely in aquifers around the world.

Image result for University of Oregon geological sciences department“No one has touched on the link between arsenic on the surface and in groundwater,” says Jin, a professor in the University of Oregon’s geological sciences department.

“Traditionally the presence of the organic form in groundwater has been ignored. The focus has always been on inorganic forms, arsenate and arsenite.”
That approach, Jin says, over-simplifies the view on arsenic levels and overlooks how human activities, including pumping and irrigation, or environmental factors such as heavy rain or drought may influence organic forms.
SAFE TO DRINK?
Water is considered safe to drink when total arsenic levels are below 10 micrograms per liter. Levels above that are considered cancer risks.
Arsenic is a natural element found in abundance in the Earth’s crust. Organic arsenic, Jin says, is made up of a series of carbon-containing forms.
Image result for Total arsenic is commonly assumed to be a pure metalloid formTotal arsenic is commonly assumed to be a pure metalloid form. Arsenic often changes forms as it moves through the environment. It also is used in some pesticides, herbicides and wood preservatives and in chicken feed.
The organic arsenic that caught the team’s attention is dimethylarsinate (DMA). This intermediate stage is a floating mishmash of dissolved organic forms along with inorganic arsenite and arsenate already floating freely in the water.
DMA’s concentration—sometimes exceeding 10 percent of inorganic arsenic—always correlates with the overall arsenite level, Jin explains. Eventually, he adds, the conversion process can turn arsenic into arsine, a volatile gas similar to fluorescent phosphine that rises as the result of decomposition in graveyards.
TESTING WELL WATER
NSFThe fieldwork, funded by the National Science Foundation and led by Jin, involved gathering water samples at depths ranging from 20 to 40 meters (66 to Oregon researchers detail new insights on arsenic cycling131 feet) from 23 wells located on rural properties near Creswell, Oregon. In 10 of the wells tested, DMA was found with concentrations as high as 16.5 micrograms per liter.
The aquifer consists of volcanic sandstone, tuff and silicic ash, overlaid by lava flows and river sediments. The basin floor dates to 33 million years ago. Organic arsenic in the aquifer, the researchers noted, is similar to that in aquifers in Florida and New Jersey in the United States and in Argentina, China (Inner Mongolia and Datong), Cypress, Taiwan, and West Bengal. Arsenic in groundwater is a challenge worldwide, including all 48 contiguous U.S. states.
To test the hypothesis that arsenic cycling was occurring by way of native bacteria, doctoral student Scott C. Maguffin conducted a series of three laboratory experiments involving dissolved arsenite and arsenate taken from wells in the study area.
The addition of ethanol in the final experiment stimulated bacterial activity, resulting in DMA concentrations much higher than those found in the field.
“I am concerned about the impact of this cycling process in aquifers,” Jin says. “If this process is as important as we believe it is, it will impact the transport and fate of arsenic in groundwater. Many organic arsenic forms are volatile and prone to diffusion. Where will these organic arsenic forms go? Will they ever make it to the surface?”

SHOCKING! ~Toxic fluoride in drinking water! ~ Must Watch Video.

FLUORIDE_TOXIC_DANGEROUS

Quote from video: “If fluoride kills cows, crops and fish and is considered a hazardous waste chemical by the EPA, then how can it be healthy to ingest?”


Monday, July 29, 2013 by: Carolanne Wright

THYROID GLAND(NaturalNews) As more information comes to light about fluoride poisoning across the country, connections between the chemical and weight gain are garnering attention. A known suppressor of the thyroid gland, fluoride is a major player in the rampant increase of obesity. But the toxicity of fluoride is subtle and can also manifest as creeping additional weight that is nearly impossible to shed.

SLIM BODY croppedOne aspect is certain: If we desire a slim and healthy body, getting a handle on fluoride exposure is crucial.

WEIGHT SCALE2Unexplained weight gain and poor health linked with depressed thyroid:
If you find yourself struggling with unexplained weight gain, fatigue, depression and general malaise, a malfunctioning thyroid may be the cause. According to “Fluoride Poisoning – It’s All Over,” German and Austrian researchers discovered in the 1930s that an overactive thyroid could be treated by bathing in fluorinated water – illustrating the powerful suppressive effect it has on the gland. For those who have a normal or low functioning thyroid, exposure to fluoride is a disaster for health. The article continues with a laundry list of staggering consequences:

 SIDE EFFECTS“Deliberately damaging the thyroid will produce a plethora of symptoms affecting the entire human body from head to toe. Symptoms of thyroid damage and fluoride poisoning include weight gain, edema, kidney disease, kidney failure, hair loss, depression, aggression, aches, pains, skin problems, bone deformities (likely including “arthritis” and spontaneous fractures), sexual/erectile dysfunction, memory loss, weakness, fatigue, heart disease, irritability, cancer, digestive disorders including severe GERD as a result of swallowing fluoride, nausea, vomiting, visual problems, gum disease, “high cholesterol,” connective tissue damage, brittle teeth, wrinkles, premature aging, dehydration, and long, long after the whole body has been damaged, “cosmetic fluorosis” might finally show up in a tooth or two.”

REDUCE CONTACT AND DETOX

FLUORIDE ALERTTo avoid fluoride induced disease and malfunction, the first step is to avoid water contaminated with the chemical.

PETITION GOVERNMENTThe ultimate solution is to petition local government – urging the removal of fluoride altogether from the water supply. However, until this happens, each household is responsible for their own water purification and safety. This requires a full house water filtration system that specifically targets fluoride, such as reverse osmosis (see video below). Once exposure is minimized, the next course of action is to detoxify fluoride already within the system.

Here are Martin’s YouTube videos explaining the benefits of our Rainsoft Reverse Osmosis drinking water system  and our whole house carbon system.

Rainsoft Reverse Osmosis water treatment systems not only remove all the toxic fluoride present in your water, but also 99% of the dangerous chemicals and pharmaceuticals.

Our Rainsoft Whole House Carbon Filtration System will give you added protection by removing toxic VOCs  (Volatile Organis Chemicals) – IE. chlorine, benzine, etc.

 Selenium – While this nutrient doesn’t expel fluoride from the body, it helps to negate it’s damaging effects. Found abundantly in Brazil nuts, fish and grassfed meats, selenium is an exceptional protective mineral. The National Institute of Health recommends a maximum 400 micrograms per day.
Tamarind – Detoxifies fluoride from the body. Enjoy several cups of the tea each day.
Nascent Iodine – Protects the thyroid from damage and removes sodium fluoride through the urine.
Infrared Sauna – A staple in any detoxification protocol, a dry sauna session assists the body in excreting fluoride from fatty tissues. Always remember to drink plenty of purified water to further sweep toxins from the system.

In the end, water fluoridation is an unnecessary and dangerous practice. Dr. J. William Hirzy, vice president of the Union of Scientists and Professionals, asserts:

NEUROTOXIN” . . . we hold that fluoridation is an unreasonable risk. The toxicity of fluoride is so great and the purported benefits are so small – if there are any at all – that requiring every man, woman and child in America to ingest it borders on criminal behavior on the part of governments.”

BOTTLED WATER – YOU WON’T BUY IT NOW!!!

 

BOTTLED WATER_STORY OF

The Story of Bottled Water, released on March 22, 2010 (World Water Day) employs the Story of Stuff style to tell the story of manufactured demand—how you get Americans to buy more than half a billion bottles of water every week when it already flows from the tap.

Over five minutes, the film explores the bottled water industry’s attacks on tap water and its use of seductive, environmental-themed advertising to cover up the mountains of plastic waste it produces.

The film concludes with a call to take back the tap, not only by making a personal commitment to avoid bottled water, but by supporting investments in clean, available tap water for all.

The Story of Bottled Water production partners on the bottled water film include five leading sustainability groups: Corporate Accountability International, Environmental Working Group, Food & Water Watch, Pacific Institute, and Polaris Institute.

WATER, THE MIRACLE OF LIFE

WATER MIRACLE OF LIFEWater, The Miracle of Life – Optimize your mind and body by staying hydrated – August 31, 2012, by CHFA

JOY MCCARTHYThis week Registered/Certified Holistic Nutritionist CNP RNCP, Joy McCarthy, discusses the importance of hydration. Discover details about how much water you should really be drinking and how to transform it into a delicious, nutritious, energizing beverage.
Summer is winding down and days are getting cooler, but this does not mean we should reduce our water intake. Exercising makes us sweat, regardless of the surrounding temperature, and electrolytes still need to be replenished. Proper hydration keeps you energized, prevents headaches, keeps muscle cramps at bay, and can help you feel fabulous all day!FIRST IMAGE
FOUNDATIONWater is the foundation of all life and its value to our bodies is immeasurable. In fact, we are made up of nearly 70 per cent water! Many of our basic metabolic processes, such as the regulation of body temperature, require enormous amounts of water – up to three litres daily.
ATHLETESEven breathing expels up to a pint of water every day. Keeping your body functioning at an optimal level is necessary for physical and mental well-being, and proper hydration is essential to that.
As mentioned, daily bodily functions account for significant water loss. For example, your feet have 250,000 sweat glands and can lose half a pint of water on a normal day! If you’re exercising regularly, this amount can increase to 2.4 litres (five pounds) per hour! Imagine what that translates to when you include all of the sweat glands in our bodies, all of the metabolic functions, and any other processes that consume water.             
How much is enough?
WATER WITH BERRYWe’ve all heard that we should drink eight to ten glasses of water every day, but this is just a guideline. We are all unique. To help you stay as hydrated as you need to be, here’s a guiding formula: drink 50 to 75 per cent of your body weight in ounces, depending on how much activity you get daily. For example, if you weigh 140 pounds, 70 ounces of water is ELDERLYoptimal if you are sedentary and 105 ounces is best, if you are active.ATHLETES This means that at 140 pounds, you should be drinking a minimum of nine cups of water daily – 13 if you are getting regular exercise!
Reinvent your water
TAP WATERIf you find plain tap water boring or unsatisfying, spice it up anyway you like. The internet is full of cool, quenching ideas, but here are a few of my favourite suggestions:
MIXED FRUIT1.Add Flavor and Fibre: Freeze some blueberries, mangos, or sliced peaches and add them to your water. This will not only sweeten it, but eating the fruits will also give you a tasty boost of fibre, vitamins and minerals. Fibre is important because it helps digestive functioning, lowers cholesterol, and, according to more recent studies, may even help prevent certain types of cancer.
EMERGEN C2.Emergen C: This powdered mix adds a kick of flavour and nutrients to your water. There are a variety of flavours you can choose from, and each conveniently sized packet contains a blend of seven ascorbates (types of Vitamin C), seven B vitamins, which keep your energy levels up, and 32 active minerals, antioxidants, and other micronutrients to refresh and energize you.
ESTER C3.Ester-C Individual Pack: This mix has a host of beneficial properties. Ester-C is a great source of vitamins C and B and also contains precious electrolytes such as sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium. This formula provides your body with the nutrients necessary to keep you energized and feeling great, and helps maintain muscle function, support bones, cartilage, teeth, gums, and even healthy skin.
FRUITY WATER4.Get creative: These are only a few suggestions and of course you should explore options that satisfy your taste buds and bodily needs.

YOU CAN’T EAT THAT BOTTLE!!!

EAT THE BOTTLE PHOTOPAD

COMPOSTABLENature Works LLC, a solely-independent division of Cargill, is the first company in the world to produce packaging that is 100 per cent compostable.

  TRANSPARENT CORNGIMP Made entirely from field corn, NatureWorks PLA is a food packaging resin that uses an annually renewable resource that doesn’t compromise the earth’s’ ability to meet the needs of tomorrow.”

BOTTLE IN CORN HUSKIt’s like using food to carry your food – or your water – as is the case with BIOTA Spring Water. YouTube video: HowStuffWorks Show: Episode 1: Corn Plastic, This clip from the HowStuffWorks show on the Discovery Channel discusses the use of corn to make plastic. Plastic made from corn is biodegradable, carbon-neutral and edible. Could corn plastic revolutionize the plastics industry?

The items shown in the collage below are just a very few of the many products that are made from this corn resin – amazing!EAT THE BOTTLE2 YouTube video: Corn to Plastics, – Corn is showing up in places you would have never expected. A company in Columbus is making plastic film from corn. Our Ohio visits Plastic Suppliers to learn more about this new technology.

The technological process of producing the plastic is essentially the same as producing petroleum-based plastic.  “Instead of oil-based carbon, we start with a sugar-based carbon from corn,” said Tucker.  The technology is especially important to the bottled water industry in the shadow of a recent study by William Shotyk of Heidelberg University in Germany, whose research on bottled mineral water shows that the plastic containers release a deadly toxin called antimony into the water the longer it is stored.

NATUREWORKS LOGO   “The NatureWorks bottle is what is referred to as a ‘barefoot resin,'” said Tucker.  “There’s nothing to leach and the bottle doesn’t change the makeup of the water.”  But just because the bottle is made from food doesn’t mean you can eat it.  TRANSPARENT CORN DON'T EATCROPPEDBIOTA cautions on its website, under frequently asked questions, that because the bottle is a plastic product, it’s not recommended that the containers be consumed.

TRANSPARENT CORN FIELD2 TO JPG Here’s an interesting footnote to wrap up this blog: However the usage of PLA corn bottle involves some drawbacks also. It is obvious that the production of PLA corn bottle or any other bio plastic would necessarily involve devoting vast acres of land for producing crops used in the manufacture of plastic products rather than food. It cannot be overlooked that plants also use energy in the form of fuel, water and other resources. Besides, transportation also adds up to a lot of fuel consumption. Being disposable they add to the waste generated and cannot take the place of reusable products which are more environmentally friendly. http://www.innovateus.net/content/what-pla-corn-bottle

IMPORTANT TO NOTE: “The technology is especially important to the bottled water industry in the shadow of a recent study by William Shotyk of Heidelberg University in Germany, (please see link below) whose research on bottled mineral water shows that the plastic containers release a deadly toxin called antimony into the water the longer it is stored.”

This is another very important reason for everyone to realize the dangers of bottled water – not only to our health, but to our precious environment.

INGENIUS! ~ CREATE DRINKING WATER FROM BILLBOARD!

A billboard in Peru

No way! ~ YES way!!!
PERU BILLBOARD WATER

What remarkable ingeniuty!!!

UTEC, the university of engineering and technology in Lima, Peru in collaburation with Mayo DraftDCB has developed the world’s first billboard that can produce potable water from the air as a promotional admissions campaign. In this region rainfall is scarce year-round, but atmospheric humidity reaches almost 98% – the project provides residents with up-to 96 liters clean drinking water in reserve tanks situated in taps at the foot of the sign, instead of having them deal with polluted wells.

Published on Feb 19, 2013 ~ The first billboard that produces potable water from the air.  Mayo DraftFCB for The University of Engineering and Technology

Interestingly, the project wasn’t so much driven by Lima’s need for water as UTEC’s need for more engineering students. Their motto is “We will continue changing the world through engineering.” And if this is what such students could get working on, we’re all for it.

BILLBOARD WATER PERU7croppedThe billboard contains five generators that churn out purified water through a reverse osmosis system. The system sends water to a tank that can store up to 100 liters per day. As you can see in the video above, people are actually using the billboard to get fresh water. In three months of operation, the billboard has produced thousands of liters.

Fortunately, the Peruvian government isn’t counting on UTEC and Mayo DraftCFB. They’ve recently announced a $3.3 billion-dollar upgrade they plan on making to their water and sewage infrastructure to provide better drinking water to their citizens.
