The Negative Health Effects of Tap Water

  1. 1. The NegativeHealth Effects ofChlorineThe dangers of drinking tap water
  2. 2. First a little background…• Water companies will generally add either chlorine or chloramine to the water to kill any potentially harmful micro-organisms in it.• Chlorine is a highly efficient disinfectant, and it is added to public water supplies to kill disease-causing bacteria that the water or its transport pipes might contain.• But there are some negative advantages to this….
  3. 3. Points of Interest• Although it has greatly lowered infectious waterborne diseases in the U.S.A. and Canada, chlorination fails against a variety of water problems including parasites and can seriously harm people who use the water.• Its cost is unnecessarily high. As of 1996, Andover, Massachusetts’ new ozone treatment costs $83 per million gallons of purified water, only two-thirds as much as the old treatment process.
  4. 4. Hazardous to Health• Chlorine in water destroys protective acidophilus, which nourishes and co-operates with the 3 to 3.5 pounds of immunity-strengthening “friendly” organisms lining the colon, where about 60 percent of our immune cells operate. And chlorine combines with organic impurities in the water to make trihalomethanes (THMs), or chloramines.
  5. 5. Issues with Contaminates• The EPA called 129 contaminants found in water supplies "dangerous" singly, let alone in combination.• Pesticides and other toxic wastes run off farmlands and pastures or are dumped by factories, pollute rivers and seep into underground aquifers.• Aptly called "biocides" by Russell Jaffe, MD, PhD, pesticides are designed to end life; few have been shown to be safe.
  6. 6. Issues Cont’d• The EPA depends on producers of pesticides to test their safety: the wolf guards the hen house. It should be no surprise that the tests take a long time and many have been fraudulent.• There is only a few solutions to this issue, but the most cost- effective and truly simple option is a filtered water system. Welcome to the world of…
