Lead in Our Drinking Water

While we should all be aware of the dangers of lead poisoning; Let's recap:

  1. Lead affects every organ and system in the body causing permanent brain, kidney, liver, spleen, and nervous system damage.
  2. Children and infants are at a significantly higher risk to lead poisoning at smaller doses.
  3. High lead levels damages the male reproductive system and can cause a blood disorder called Anemia.
  4. Even at relatively low exposures, decreased intelligence, short-term memory loss, reading under-achievement, impairment of visual-motor function, loss of auditory memory, poor perceptual integration, and impaired reaction time occurs.

Beyond lead paint, one of our primary exposures to lead poisoning comes from our drinking water.  Lead pipes and/or lead soldering is still prevalent in many older homes, bldgs, and distribution systems. Water filters are required for protection in such circumstances.  Dr. Marc Edwards of Environmental Engineering at Virginia Tech spoke this past summer at the Yale University Drinking Water Symposium.   Following up on Dr. Oz's water filter segment, this is a great clip of Dr. Edward's presentation on the dangers of lead in our municipal water and school buildings.

    I watched your video about “Lead in Our Drinking Water”. The speaker seemed confused that bureacrats would allow unacceptable levels of lead in school water supplies. However, more toxic than lead is Fluoride which is being intentionally added to water under the pretext of dental necessity for children (which research no longer supports), not to mention "fluoride" has become a contaminant catchword and legal disclaimer for other chemical compounds found in our food and water supply that, thanks to lobbyists, no longer need to be disclosed. Keeping that in mind, also consider the endemic effect of feeding psychoactive medications to children for nebulous conditions, including many vaccines known to contain thermasil (ie, mercury) and other harmful adjuncts. How can this be? If you examine history, you will learn that elite powers that-be have been polluting the world's population for centuries. Why? To weed out and depopulate the worlds' undesirables, the unproductive, useless feeders and consumers, and the rest of humanity whose carbon footprint, dysgenic gene pool reproduction, and growth is considered a threat to mankind, especially to the ruling class. Sounds extreme? Not until you research eugenics, Malthusian Theory, Margaret Sanger, and the fact that California was once considered ground zero for this movement supported by the state where Hitler borrowed his racial cleansing ideas. Consider these historical quotes:

    "Society has no business to permit degenerates to reproduce their kind.... Any group of farmers who permitted their best stock not to breed, and let all the increase come from the worst stock, would be treated as fit inmates for an asylum.... Some day we will realize that the prime duty, the inescapable duty of the good citizens of the right type is to leave his or her blood behind him in the world; and that we have no business to permit the perpetuation of citizens of the wrong type. The great problem of civilization is to secure a relative increase of the valuable as compared with the less valuable or noxious elements in the population... The problem cannot be met unless we give full consideration to the immense influence of heredity..." - Theodore Roosevelt to Charles B. Davenport, January 3, 1913, Charles B. Davenport Papers, Department of Genetics, Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y.

    "Eugenics is … the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems." - Margaret Sanger. "The Eugenic Value of Birth Control Propaganda." Birth Control Review, October 1921, page 5.

    "There is no permanent status quo in nature; all is the process of adjustment and readjustment, or else eventual failure. But man is the first being yet evolved on earth which has the power to note this changefulness, and, if he will, to turn it to his own advantage, to work out genetic methods, eugenic ideas, yes, to invent new characteristics, organs, and biological systems that will work out to further the interests, the happiness, the glory of the God-like being whose meager foreshadowings we the present ailing creatures are." - Herrman J. Muller, 1935 (an associate of Sir Julian Huxley)

    "Political unification in some sort of world government will be required... Even though... any radical eugenic policy will be for many years politically and psychologically impossible, it will be important for UNESCO to see that the eugenic problem is examined with the greatest care, and that the public mind is informed of the issues at stake so that much that now is unthinkable may at least become thinkable." - Sir Julian Huxley, UNESCO: Its Purpose and Its Philosophy.

    "The first century or two of the new millennium will almost certainly be a golden age for Eugenics. Through application of new genetic knowledge and reproductive technologies…the major change will be to mankind itself…[T]echniques…such as…genetic manipulations are not yet efficient enough to be unquestionably suitable in therapeutic and eugenic application for humans. But with the pace of research it is surely only a matter of time, and a short time at that." - Glayde Whitney, Reproduction Technology for a New Eugenics, paper for The Galton Institute conference Man and Society in the New Millennium, September 1999

    "There will be in the next generation or so a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude and producing dictatorship without tears so to speak. Producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda, or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution." -- Aldous Huxley, Tavistock Group, California Medical School, 1961

    "Within the next generation I believe that the world's leaders will discover that infant conditioning and narco-hypnosis are more efficient, as instruments of government, than clubs and prisons, and that the lust for power can be just as completely satisfied by suggesting people into loving their servitude as by flogging them and kicking them into obedience." – Aldous Huxley to George Orwell (aka Eric Blair)

    "The common enemy of humanity is man. In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself." -- The First Global Revolution, Club of Rome, Alexander King & Bertrand Schneider, (New York: Pantheon Books, 1991, pg. 115)

    Lithium in Water Shown to Curb Suicide

    Lithium does have its negative side effects as well. Some are mild: people often feel thirsty when taking lithium. Other side effects can be more severe, like weight-gain and diabetes and kidney problems.

    I should note that fluoride is a form of mental castration. It was used in Nazi stalags and Russian gulags to passify prisoners... maybe this explains why Americans have become apathetic and are relinquishing their republic away, eh?

    IN CONCLUSION, I'm reviewing your excellent products and plan on buying something in the near future. FYI, I'm interested in filtering out arsenic, lead, chlorine, and fluoride. I like the travelers, berkley light, and shower head filter.

    In the meantime, stay healthy. Considering my sales background, maybe I can help sell a few of your products... ;)


    THANKS,

    Karl
