Schoolchildren Should Drink More Water



Most children arrive at school in a state of mild dehydration that may negatively affect scholastic performance.
Preventing cellular dehydration is integral to hormonal, immune, neurological, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, muscle and skeletal function. So researchers recently set out to determine the hydration status of healthy children in the United States. Urine samples were obtained from groups of 9 to 11 year olds in Los Angeles and Manhattan on their way to school to see how they were doing.

“As long as we have lead in contact with drinking water, we can have exposure at the tap.”


Tests in cities, rural subdivisions and even schools and day cares serving water to 6 million people have found excessive and harmful levels of lead, with several hundred…

Apartment Therapy" Best Apartment Filters"

I found this In Apartment Therapy 
"I would recommend any of these depending on your situation and your budget.
Filtering your water is basically a win-win and you can't go wrong. However, if you want to boost either aesthetics or filtration, the bigger systems will certainly do more.

1. Multipure Aquaperform Below-the-Sink with Faucet - $550 ($250 per year @ 2 filters) This is a serious carbon filter. A solid block carbon filter held in a stainless steel housing that sits under your sink and comes with its own chrome faucet, we've been using the Multipure for about five years. The water tastes great and the ease of use couldn't be better (it's just not refrigerator cold). The filter (which we change about every six months - or when the water begins to run slowly) is activated carbon inside of a large cylinder and is said to the the only filter in NSF testing that reduces all of the following contaminants: Lead, Mercury, Cyst, Asbestos, VOC, MTBE, PCB, Chloramine, and Arsenic V.
Multipure systems are NSF certified to reduce both aesthetic (NSF 42) and health effects (NSF 53) in water." Read Entire Article

Poisoned drinking water causing irreparable brain damage

The Lifelong Burden of Lead Exposure
The scandal of toxic levels of lead in Flint
The consequences of lead exposure are varied, insidious, long-term, and include anemia, hypertension, renal impairment, and immunotoxicity. But the most profound are the neurologic consequences, which are basically permanent brain damage, such as loss of intelligence and behavioral disorders, including aggressive, dysfunctional and violent behavior. Exposure to lead during pregnancy even reduces the head circumference of infants, and brain gray matter in areas responsible for things such as impulse control and executive functioning.

Do I need a water filter?

1. Have you checked with EWG's (Environmental Working Group) database listing contaminants in your area?  http://www.ewg.org/tapwater

2. Was your house built before 1978? they used lead pipes up to that time and there is no safe level for lead in drinking water. 

3. Does your water have an unpleasant taste or odor?

4. Do you have chlorine in your water? Most public water departments add chlorine to their water which creates a by-product called Trihalomethanes (THMs).  

5. Does your water pick up contaminants in the pipes on the way to your house from the water treatment plant? The pipe lines may pick up assorted assorted hormones, pesticides and even prescription drugs. 

6. Do you use bottled water? Bottled water is unregulated expensive and causes havoc with the environment.

Why Buy a Genuine Multipure CB6 Filter?

It is important that you always use a genuine Multipure replacement filter. Knock-off filters that you might find on the internet have no verification for the quality of their performance. Multipure's filters have been NSF certified to reduce the widest range of contaminants. 

Multipure uses the highest grade carbon in accordance with NSF standards.

Multipure's filters, housings and components are designed to work together. Once you start changing out components (ie. another housing, another cartridge) you start changing the performance characteristics of the system. There are carbon filters for sale that might leach toxic substances including Arsenic and Aluminum. With no regulation or certification of their safety they may cut corners and use inferior materials.

If you use anything other that a Multipure filter your warranty is no longer in effect as filters using questionable materials may damage your Multipure drinking water system.
Be sure to ensure the performance and warranty of your Multipure Drinking Water System by using or genuine Multipure replacement filters.
It is not worth the risk to your health to save a few dollars on knock-off filters.

    All About Lead Poisoning

                         
    By Carole Allen

    Lead is one of the oldest metals on the planet, it never goes away. Lead dating is used for dating and analyzing geological samples as old as the earth. We began producing lead in 3000 BC. The Romans used it for water pipes and added it to wine to sweeten it even though they were aware of the dangers to their health and the insanity it caused.  Known as "plumbism" it was thought to be responsible for the madness of the Roman Emperors and the infertility of Julius Caesar. He was extremely sexually active but only bore one child. Some say the fall of the Roman Empire was due to lead in the drinking water. During the Renaissance lead was used by the Catherine de Medici for a slow poison on those who got in her way, known then as poudre de la succession, "succession powder". 

    Fast forward to the 20th century and we began using it in gasoline, building construction, paint, pesticides, plastics, pipes, cans for canned foods, batteries, bullets and is used today in dentist's offices is a radiation shield in the heavy apron. 

    Its use was favored by the automobile industry because it reduced engine knock. DuPont, GM, Standard Oil (Exxon) continued to use it in dangerous levels from 1925 to 1978 for profit while aware of the toxic effects. By hiring physicians to say it was non toxic they were able to continue its use. It has been estimated that 68 million children were exposed to lead in toxic levels for 1927 to 1987. Knowing all they do about the toxicity, they still sell it to third world countries. 

    Lead doesn't break down or go away. It is always with us and all that lead is still in the air, our bodies, water and the soil. Lead effects the nervous system, causes gastrointestinal ailments, and brain dammage, among other things. No matter what we do we can't get rid of it and the best we can do is make sure it isn't in our drinking water. In order to do that we need a Drinking Water System that reduces lead to the finest microns.

    The Risk of Lead in Drinking Water

    Lead parts per billion
    Lead In Drinking Water by Carole Allen

    The problem of lead in water is not isolated alone to Flint Michigan. Anyone living in a house with that was built before 1978 is under risk as lead was used in pipes up to that time. There is no safe level for lead in drinking water. 
    Your public water may not have lead in it but when it leaves the water treatment plant but because of the aging infrastructure, the pipes and the pipes leading up to your dwelling may have lead in them and other contaminating substances in them.

    Lead poisoning is life threatening, it can cause kidney failure. heart disease, high blood pressure, cognitive function and ADHA in children.


    You can find out if you have lead toxicity with a simple lead blood test. If you to have lead poisoning it is best to treat it quickly because the longer it is in your system the more difficult it is to remove. Damage may be irreparable to seniors or children. 

    The best way to remove lead from you system is to get chelation therapy which will draw lead out of the tissues. It is helpful to take buffered ascorbic acid to help remove the lead and vitamin E in high doses and vitamin D3 to prevent your bones from releasing the lead into your system. Gel lots of calcium, iron and foods rich in these nutrients. Infrared sauna therapy may be helpful as it helps detoxify your body. Benonite Clay has been used for centuries to pull out heavy metals from your system. Chlorophyll will assist in cleansing your blood as well.

    What happened in Flint is a disaster. Parents are afraid to bathe their children in the water and until the pipe lines are fixed there is a potential danger of lead poisoning. The easiest way to ensure that you are not getting lead in your drinking water is by using a Drinking Water Filtration System. Multipure has been certified to reduce lead from .150mg/L to .010mg/L or less.
