Water is incredibly important to the human body. The average adult human body is 55-60% water. A baby’s body is closer to 75% Two crucial organs in the body, the brain and the lungs, are 70% and 90% water respectively. For this reason, the quality of the water you drink greatly impacts your overall health.

Modern society has degraded the quality of the water around us due to our poor environmental habits. This has led us to a point where high quality drinking water can be difficult to find. While the argument is made that tap water is amongst the best water available to us, a series of testing for the ingredients in our tap water would tell almost anyone that it is certainly not of high quality.

Recent analyses of municipal drinking water have shown that, despite government regulations, there are still many dangerous contaminants present in our water. There are many chemicals that are not regulated and there is no legal specifications to restrict what amount of certain chemicals can be in the water. This means that certain chemicals can be found in any given amount.[1]

To make matters worse, many municipalities in Canada and the United States voluntarily add fluoride to their water supplies without the consent or vote of the citizens. In fact, most citizens and government officials are drastically misinformed about fluoride. I personally tested this out by calling my local water company here in Toronto. At the municipal and provincial level, (equivalent to state level) they were unable to provide me with any information regarding the safety of fluoride, nor were they able to provide any documentation to suggest that water fluoridation helps to prevent tooth decay. After chasing The Dental Association of Canada, I received a long-winded answer that also did not address whether or not water fluoridation has any effect.[2]

The Safe Drinking Water Act only regulates 91 potential water contaminants. In the US alone, over 60,000 chemicals are used that can find their way into water supplies. Many of them have been identified as possible carcinogens. Current estimates suggest that there is more than 2,100 known chemical toxins present in U.S. tap water. Cities with older pipelines also face problems as chemicals leach from the lines as the water travels.[3]

What’s in our tap water?

1. Fluoride

Fluoride is one of the biggest, dare I say, ‘shocking calls’ that has ever been made when it comes to voluntarily polluting our water with toxic chemicals. Most may not know, but the fluoride used in water fluoridation practices is a mix of a number of highly toxic chemicals, including radioactive chemicals, that are formed during aluminum and fertilizer production. The substance is considered a class 4 hazardous waste product by the EPA and it is illegal to dump anywhere in the environment. Allow me to say, this is not a conspiracy theory, the chemical used in our water, hydrofluorocilicic acid is in fact a class 4 hazardous waste substance that is ILLEGAL to dump in the environment. Yet for over 50 years, the U.S. government has mandated that fluoride be added to the water supply to prevent dental problems. What we don’t realize, is we are still dumping this waste product into the environment, but under the guise of a “health practice.” While there has never been research to suggest the safety or effectiveness of water fluoridation, current research has shown that fluoride has been shown to damage tooth enamel, increase fracture risk, suppress immune and thyroid function, increase cancer risk and disrupt the function of the pineal gland.

The good news, cities all over North America have been banning the chemical over the last few years and it is expected to continue. Many European countries have banned the use of fluoride altogether. We have quite a few articles about this on our website.

2. Chlorine

We have all heard of chlorine, not only is it found in our water, but also in most swimming pools. In both uses, it is called upon as a disinfectant as it effectively kills microorganisms. The trouble is, chlorine does not know when to stop killing organisms, which leads to toxic effects for the body. Chlorine has been identified as a leading cause of bladder cancer, and has been associated with rectal and breast cancers, asthma, birth defects and premature aging of skin.[8] We covered this topic in great depth in the January issue of CE Magazine.

3. Radioactive Contaminants

Remember the Fukushima nuclear accident? Since then, radioactive fallout from Japan has been detected in drinking water supplies throughout the U.S. Radioactive iodine-131 was detected in drinking water samples from 13 U.S. cities.[4] In some cities, radioactive cesium and tellurium isotopes have also been detected at low levels.  (You can view this data on the EPA’s website.) The health implications of this radioactive contamination are not known yet.

4. Pharmaceutical Drugs

Pharmaceutical drugs are consumed in great numbers in North America. Inevitably, these drugs find their way into our water after being flushed or discarded via urine. Investigations have demonstrated that an increasing number of pharmaceutical drugs are finding their way into our drinking water and this should pose some concern.[5] Anything from antibiotics and birth control pills to painkillers, antidepressants and other psychiatric medications are showing up in most municipal water supplies.

5. Hexavalent Chromium

An Environmental Working Group report revealed that hexavalent chromium, a chemical identified as “probably carcinogen by the EPA,” is present in high concentrations in 31 U.S. cities.[6] If you are unaware of this chemical, it was made famous by the movie, Erin Brockovitch, which chronicled the truth story battle against Pacific Gas and Electric for contaminating the water in an area of Southern California. The chemical poisoned thousands of people yet there are still no regulations for hexavalent chromium in drinking water.

6. Lead, Aluminum & Heavy Metals

Lead and other heavy metals can make their way into our tap water as a result of the corrosion of pipes in our plumbing systems. Lead consumption has been linked to severe developmental delays and learning disorders in children. Aluminum and other heavy metals have been linked to nerve, brain and kidney damage. In the United States, some municipalities still transport water in lead pipes.

7. Arsenic

Arsenic is a well known poisonous element known to be extremely carcinogenic. According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, it is estimated that as many as 56 million Americans drink water containing unsafe levels of arsenic.[7] Considering the carcinogenic nature of Arsenic, this can greatly increase the rate of cancer. To find out what areas contain more arsenic, see the following link, USGS website.

What Can You Do?

In my opinion you have a couple of choices. One would be to, at the very least, begin getting your water from a store that offers reverse osmosis water. Due to the lack of minerals in RO water, it would be beneficial to add minerals back via supplements. This solution is not overly expensive and you can begin the change today. You can also buy a ‘under-the-sink’ reverse osmosis system for about $250-$400. To solve the mineral issue, ask your filtration provider about a PH balancer or re-mineralization stage that can be added for another $100 – $150. Both will remineralize the water with magnesium and calcium as it would be produced in nature. I would not recommend a Brita filter as a solution as it does not remove many of the contaminants nor does it truly solve the chlorine problem. This is covered in depth in the January issue of CE Magazine. There are costs involved in any solution, but what is your health worth to you?

A Documentary Series Exploring The Most Powerful ‘Alternative Medicines’ Known To Man

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A new 9-part documentary series called Proven: Healing Breakthroughs Backed By Science. Is set to begin. It's free to sign up for to watch, and you can do so in the link provided within the article.

  • Reflect On:

    Is our current medical industry concerned with health and wellness, or profit? Why don't they promote substances they cannot profit off of that seem to work for a number of illness better than prescription drugs? What's going on here?

“The medical profession is being bought by the pharmaceutical industry, not only in terms of the practice of medicine, but also in terms of teaching and research. The academic institutions of this country are allowing themselves to be the paid agents of the pharmaceutical industry. I think it’s disgraceful.”

– Arnold Seymour Relman (1923-2014), Harvard Professor of Medicine and Former Editor-in-Chief of the New England Medical Journal (source)

It’s quite well known that interest in “alternative medicine” is growing, and has been growing for quite a long time. This doesn’t seem to be a trend that’s going to stop. Every single year, month and day it’s clear that its popularity will continue to increase exponentially. I put the word alternative because prior to modern day medicine, it wasn’t cosidered alternative, it was simply considered medicine, just like organic food wasn’t considered organic, it was just normal food.

The Documentary Series

This type of medicine is something we were at Collective Evolution are incredibly passionate about, which is why we’ve been creating awareness about it for ten years now. This is why we are also excited about a new 9-part documentary series called Proven: Healing Breakthroughs Backed By Science.

It’s premiering in a few days, so be sure to sign up (it’s free). You can watch the trailer here if interested. 

A heightened interest in this topic  is happening for multiple reasons, one of them is the fact that healthcare providers are losing confidence in pharmaceutical grade medicine. Many doctors and scientists are feeling uncomfortable with the idea of prescribing certain medicines, and many publications have come out for a number of years showing that some of them can be harmful and inadequate. There are many of examples to choose from, from prescription drugs all the way to some vaccines. Perhaps the latest being the statements made by  Professor Heidi Larson, a Professor of Anthropology and the Risk and Decision Scientist Director at the Vaccine Confidence Project, explaining how healthcare providers are now concerned about vaccine safety. You can read more about that here.

Another reason is because there are thousands of studies now showing that many “alternative” medicines and therapies (that your doctor doesn’t know about or isn’t allowed to recommend) are far superior for many of the chronic health conditions we suffer from.

This is exactly what the docu-series goes into and provides evidence for.

It’s also happening due to the amount of corruption and fraud that’s been exposed within our federal health regulatory agencies, and again, there are many examples to choose from. One of the best would be the SPIDER papers. A group called the CDC Scientists Preserving Integrity, Diligence and Ethics in Research, or CDC SPIDER, put a list of complaints in a letter to the CDC Chief of Staff and provided a copy of the letter to the public watchdog organization U.S. Right to Know (USRTK). They raised concerns “about the current state of ethics at our agency.  It appears that our mission is being influenced and shaped by outside parties and rogue interests. It seems that our mission and Congressional intent for our agency is being circumvented by some of our leaders. What concerns us most, is that it is becoming the norm and not the rare exception. Some senior management officials at CDC are clearly aware and even condone these behavior.

The main reason we take so many drugs is that drug companies don t sell drugs, they sell lies about drugs. This is what makes drugs so different from anything else in life… Virtually everything we know about drugs is what the companies have chosen to tell us and our doctors… the reason patients trust their medicine is that they extrapolate the trust they have in their doctors into the medicines they prescribe. The patients don’t realize that, although their doctors may know a lot about diseases and human physiology and psychology, they know very, very little about drugs that’ve been carefully concocted and dressed up by the drug industry. – Dr. Peter Gotzsche, co-founder of the Cochrane Collaboration (source)

Last but not least, the biggest reason why many people are gravitating towards this type of medicine is simply because it’s working for them. There is extreme legitimacy, in some cases, when it comes to alternative treatment. Again, this is exactly why more and more people every single year gravitate towards these options.

Was Trump Right? New Study Shows Success With Use Of Chlorine Dioxide On COVID-19

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A recent preliminary study in Ecuador has looked at the use of chlorine dioxide as a treatment for COVID-19. Thus far, after oral and intravenous treatment, patients have recovered in only 4 days.

  • Reflect On:

    Is this yet another cheap and effective treatment we should be looking at producing instead of expensive and controversial vaccine development?

US President Trump recently became the laughing stock of mainstream media for suggesting that disinfectant should be injected into people to fight against the virus. While the media may have blown the context of his statements out of proportion, a recently published preliminary study shows he may have actually been right.

A clinical trial, involving more than 100 patients suffering from COVID-19, who were given chlorine dioxide, both orally and/or intravenously, showed that patients were cured within 4 days, so says biophysicist Andreas Kalcker. The trial was carried out by the Asociacion Ecuatoriana de Medicos Expertos en Medicina Integrativa, overseen by a medical group of clinicians in Ecuador.

These noteworthy results deserve much more research, but like other alternative treatments, you might guess that this information will be censored in the coming days.

Chlorine dioxide, an incredibly cheap and easy to produce solution, has been widely used for many purposes including disinfecting bottled drinking water. Most humans have come into contact with CLO2 as a result of its common uses.

You can learn more about CLO2 and this new study in the video below from Andreas Kalcker.

Chlorine Dioxide Is A Registered ‘Excellent’ Bactericide, Fungicides and Anti-Microbial Agent

Chlorine dioxide is registered with the EPA (Registration No. 74986-1), as it is considered an ‘excellent’ bactericide, fungicide and antimicrobial agent.  It is also interesting to note it has passed the EPA’s stringent DIS/TISS guidelines for use as a disinfectant and as a food-contact surface sanitizer.

It also being used to clean transport, a bus company in Sacremento shared that they using chlorine dioxide to disinfect its seats of Coronavirus.

Are people dying needlessly of COVID-19 while on ventilators? This is a question many people have been asking given the amount of people who have been dying after being o ventilators for an extended period of time.

According to Mike Adams of Natural News:

Ecuador has been hit particularly hard by the coronavirus, and the current “standard of care” promoted by Western medicine — largely based on the use of ventilators — has been killing the vast majority of critical patients while utterly failing to address the real root of the problem.

Covid-19 isn’t an Acute Respiratory Disease (ARD), it turns out. Rather, it often presents as an inflammation and blood clotting condition (see The Lancet research, below) which causes the blood to be unable to carry oxygen, resulting in patient hypoxia and eventual asphyxiation.

This is why intravenous chlorine dioxide — which immediately delivers a high dose of oxygen to blood cells — is believed to work so effectively against covid-19. It reportedly restores the oxygen-carrying capacity of hemoglobin and clears the clotting in the lungs, all while destroying pathogens.

Chlorine Dioxide Patents

This information may not be commonly known, but there are many patents involving the use of Chlorine dioxide.  These two are very interesting:

  1. https://patents.google.com/patent/US20190015445A1/

Disclosed is an injection containing chlorine dioxide in therapeutic applications such as in-vivo stem cell regeneration, anti-tumor and anti-aging

  1. https://patents.google.com/patent/EP1955719B1/

This one is about treatment for treating respritory viruses. Disinfection, sterilisation or deodorisation of air using gaseous or vaporous substances, e.g. ozone

Mainstream media has stated that oral use of chlorine dioxide is ‘dangerous,’ but is that entirely accurate? Depending on the dose used, as with any potential medicine, it can be completely safe and effective as discussed in Kalcker’s video above. If you’d like to do more research for yourself on the subject, including exploring the safety of ingestion, please check out these scientific papers.

WHO’s CLO2 Drinking Water Studies

The World Health Organisation promotes that chlorine dioxide is a safe, non toxic, water disinfectant. You might like to read about the findings of chlorine dioxide showing no toxic effects to kidneys, and that it does not have evidence it has mutagenic or carcinogenic effects.  Some of the studies on animals were carried out for 2 years, and three months on humans.  This was the conclusion:

Studies in healthy adult male volunteers lasting up to 12 weeks showed no clear treatment related effects on blood, urine analysis or physical examination at doses of sodium chlorite (Chlorine Dioxide)  and sodium chlorate estimated to be in the region of 0.036 mg/kg bw per day, expressed as chlorite or chlorate. The authors concluded that the absence of detrimental physiological responses within the limits of the study demonstrated the relative safety of oral ingestion of chlorine dioxide, chlorate and chlorite (Lubbers, Chauhan & Bianchine, 1981, 1982; Lubbers  & Bianchine, 1984; Lubbers et al., 1984a,b).

Read the WHO’s own paper here.

When we see results like we see with CLO2, should it not be standard practice to explore these possibilities with open hearts ad open minds to see if we can come up with a fast solution to global challenges? Why is there little coverage of information like this? Why is so much effort spent casting doubt and debunking solutions like this without proper testing? Why is the focus always on expensive, profitable and potentially unsafe vaccines?

Wireless Industry Admits That No Safety Testing Has Been Conducted For 5G Technology

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Below is a clip of Senator Richard Blumenthal during a hearing that took place last year, questioning wireless industry representatives about the safety of 5G technology.

  • Reflect On:

    Why doesn't the industry conduct studies along with independent scientists to see if 5G technology is safe? Do they care? Do they know something we don't? Is it even scientifically possible for 5G to be considered safe? Why not just find out?

Important notice to our readers. A global online summit featuring the leading doctors, scientists and activists in the field is set to take place about 5G technology, the health concerns and what you can do about it. It’s completely free to sign up and watch. If you want to reserve your spot, you can sign up HERE to watch it. Once you sign up you’ll be taken to a link where you can download our free E-Book on 5G. It covers what 5G is and an abundance of peer-reviewed research is cited for anybody in your life or in your family who actually questions if there are really any legitimate concerns.

In December 2018, US. Senator Richard Blumenthal and U.S. Representative Anna G. Eshoo (CA-18) sent a letter to FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr seeking answers regarding potential health risks posed by new 5G wireless technology. At  a hearing, that took place last year, Blumenthal criticized Carr for failing to provide answers, and instead, just echoing, “the general statements of the FDA.” Blumenthal also decried the FDA’s statements as “pretty unsatisfactory.” The PDF of Carr’s complete response is available here.

During an exchange with wireless industry representatives who were also in attendance, Blumenthal asked them whether they have supported research on the safety of 5G technology and potential links between radio-frequency and cancer, and the industry representatives conceded they have not.

The point is that the industry has not conducted any safety testing of these technologies and is currently rolling them out. This also echoes many studies that have been published that are raising concerns. For example A study published in 2019 in Frontiers in Public Health is one of many that raises concerns about 5G technology. It points out that “novel 5G technology is being rolled out in several densely populated cities, although potential chronic health or environmental impacts have not been evaluated and are not being followed.” It goes on to emphasize that the range and magnitude of potential impacts of 5G technologies are under-researched, although important biological outcomes have been reported with millimeter wavelength exposure.   These include oxidative stress and altered gene expression, effects on skin and systemic effects such as on immune function. In vivo studies reporting resonance with human sweat ducts, acceleration of bacterial and viral replication, and other endpoints indicate the potential for novel as well as more commonly recognized biological impacts from this range of frequencies, and highlight the need for research before population-wide continuous exposures.”

It’s one of many that  outlines how, “In some countries, notably the US, scientific evidence of the potential hazards of RFR has been largely dismissed. Findings of carcinogenicity, infertility and cell damage occurring at daily exposure levels—within current limits—indicate that existing exposure standards are not sufficiently protective of public health. Evidence of carcinogenicity alone, such as that from the NTP study, should be sufficient to recognize that current exposure limits are inadequate.”

Not only does the industry need to conduct studies, but studies should also be conducted independently. So far, the studies that have been published make it quite clear that there are biological effects of this type of technology.

Ask yourself, how can this type of technology be rolled out and approved without any safety testing? What’s going on here? Why are the cries for safety testing my the citizenry, scientists and doctors constantly ignored? What does this say about our world and our supposed democracy? Why do some mainstream media outlets ridicule the idea that this type of technology can be dangerous? How can hundreds of scientists and doctors be considered conspiracy theorists for raising concerns? How can thousands of scientific peer-reviewed studies that raise concerns about this type of technology continue to go ignored by the industry?

A Global Online Summit on 5G Technology Is Set To Take Place

These questions, along with the health concerns of 5G technology and what we can do about it, will be the topic of a global online summit that’s set to take place the first week of June. The summit will feature multiple doctors, scientists and activists in the field. It’s going to be very informational, very informative, and it’s going to be completely free.
