Do You Really Know The Answer to What Medications to Get?
You may think you do but what if you are getting heart medication without needing it? Or men getting birth control pills?
Think about the consequences if that were true!
No, the pharmacist isn't messing up nor your doctor. Read on and see what prescriptions you are really taking!
If you are drinking or bathing in tap water you very probably are getting someone else's prescriptions and you don't know it!
If you are having health problems and drinking or bathing in Tap water, could that water be the culprit? Yes!
A 2000 & 2002 U.S. government analysis showed the nation's waterways are awash in chemicals used in beauty aids, medications, cleaners, and foods. Among the substances found were caffeine, contraceptives, painkillers, insect repellent, perfumes, heart medication and nicotine. How much? All they know for sure it's unacceptable levels!
Scientists say the problem is that these substances largely escape regulation and defy municipal wastewater treatment facilities. All the long-term effects of exposure are still unclear and there are not many studies being done to find out. The few studies that have been published had only bad news!
Compounds of all kinds, and more being added daily, are sold on supermarket shelves and found in virtually every medicine cabinet and broom closet as well as at farms and factories. And they are flushed or rinsed down the drain every day.
Having worked in medical offices for twenty plus years I can attest that this does happen... We were taught to flush outdated medications down the toilet. We all assume our government local, federal and state would have something to clean our water at the waste disposal plant. Boy what
ostriches we are, sticking our heads in the sand. I can only regret my actions that contributed to this problem and will absolutely never do it again...
Look at all the medical offices and the thousands and millions of outdated medications, in each office, dumped into your tap water? That practice was supposed to stop a few years ago, but has it? Not a pretty thought!
This is the first generation to be raised with such horrendous chemical dangers and we still do not know the whole affect that is being put upon us. My grandmother always said, "Better to be safe than sorry." I thought she was just old but you know she was smarter than I gave her credit for. Now it's my turn to pass on the wisdom gained by age. But at least I have lived to age, because my childhood was free of the poisons that my children and grandchildren have been and are being subjected to daily!
Researchers warn that they do not disappear or break up! Disposal plants cannot remove them either!
Don't think just because you are on well water and it tastes good that it is free of those same chemicals. It's not! If you had your water tested I bet you didn't pay the thousands of dollars in cost to check for all those chemicals! They are there!
Then there are the added chemicals to kill the bacteria in our water that our so-called health watch dogs say is healthy for us. That isn't true either!
A study, from the Journal of Brain Research Vol. 784, 1998, indicates that low levels of fluoride in the drinking water of animals - equal to the amount of fluoride found in fluorinated water systems- causes damage to brain tissue, similar to the pathological changes found in humans with Alzheimer's and other severe forms of dementia.
Do you know what is coming out of your tap and shower?

You I am totally aware that some of you have the idea "Well I'm going to die of something anyway!" How about dying of "old Age" wouldn't that be better? Why hurry to
die younger? Because it's easy to do nothing and let others make your decisions. Dying younger than necessary is a sad commentary for the laziness of our world!
Be an activist in your life and the lives of your family and friends. What are the common chemicals authorized to come out of your tap? Two very common ones are; Fluoride and chlorine.
Are you using water filtration/purification to filter out the fluoride and other chemicals? It must be both shower and tap filtration or whole house to be effective!
Don't panic but be careful with your health, when it's gone you have nothing left. Take care of your body and your body will take care of you for the long years ahead! Filtration should be a prime concern in every household!
NOTE: Water softeners do not filter out anything they only mask the chemicals; it just makes for feeling good and a lot of suds when you lather your soap on. It even masks the water taste, as good! This I learned, first hand. Brita won' t get it either!
