Chemical reaction between pipe alloy and water disinfectants produce cancer-causing chromium in drinking water

Researchers from the University of California, Riverside have found that pipe alloy can react with residual water disinfectants to produce cancer-causing chromium that gets mixed in drinking water. In a study published in the journal Environmental Science & Technology, the researchers said that chemical reactions can change chromium in water pipes into a form that creates genetic mutations in cells. Pipe alloy plus disinfectants … Continue reading Chemical reaction between pipe alloy and water disinfectants produce cancer-causing chromium in drinking water

Vitamin C and other antioxidants can prevent cell toxicity linked to the water contaminant hexavalent chromium

Antioxidants such as vitamin C are often taken to boost immunity and prevent diseases, but these substances can also be used against a water contaminant called hexavalent chromium. This chemical contaminates the water supply in about 200 million American homes. Researchers from Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, Illinois discovered that vitamin C and other antioxidants like epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), the primary … Continue reading Vitamin C and other antioxidants can prevent cell toxicity linked to the water contaminant hexavalent chromium

Hexavalent chromium (chromium-6) was just found in 75% of drinking water… the mass chemical suicide of America is under way

An Environmental Working Group review of government water analysis data reveals that 75% of drinking water in America is contaminated with cancer-causing hexavalent chromium (also known as chromium-6). In a widely publicized report, EWG warns that 200 million Americans are right now being exposed to this toxic chemical in their water. This is on top of our own … Continue reading Hexavalent chromium (chromium-6) was just found in 75% of drinking water… the mass chemical suicide of America is under way

The Health Dangers of Chromium Hexavalent

Source: The Health Dangers of Chromium Hexavalent by Dr. Edward Group If you remember, in the movie Erin Brockovich, chromium hexavalent is the dangerous chemical compound that Ms. Brockovich helped to eradicate from Hinkley, California’s water supply. Why did she pursue the fight? Because chromium hexavalent is extremely toxic and dangerous. What is Chromium Hexavalent? Chromium … Continue reading The Health Dangers of Chromium Hexavalent

Here’s why you need trace minerals to boost your overall well-being

The human body needs minerals to function properly. In fact, there are two types of minerals — macrominerals and trace minerals. The body needs macrominerals, such as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium, potassium and sulfur, in large amounts; hence the name. Although the body only needs a small amount of trace minerals, they still play a vital … Continue reading Here’s why you need trace minerals to boost your overall well-being

Scientists find 55 new environmental chemicals in pregnant women, newborns

Scientists at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) detected 109 chemicals in pregnant women and their newborn children, including 55 that have never before been found inside human bodies and 42 whose sources and uses remain unclear. Of the 55 chemicals, 37 are ones that researchers have little to no information on. Published recently in the journal Environmental Science and Technology, … Continue reading Scientists find 55 new environmental chemicals in pregnant women, newborns

Fertility warning: 34 cases of spontaneous miscarriage and stillbirth reported after experimental mRNA vaccines

In the rush to vaccinate every man, woman and child against a year-old coronavirus strain, sacrifices are being made. The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) is now reporting thirty-four cases of miscarriage and stillbirth associated with the experimental COVID-19 vaccinations. The initial guidelines warn pregnant women not to partake in these real-world vaccine trials, but the … Continue reading Fertility warning: 34 cases of spontaneous miscarriage and stillbirth reported after experimental mRNA vaccines

Toxic ingredient in disinfectants can give rise to antibiotic-resistant bacteria, birth defects and more

Experts are raising the alarm about a certain family of chemicals that are found in several commercial cleaning products. Quaternary ammonium compounds, or quats, are charged chemicals that can kill bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms. But though they are effective disinfectants, researchers found that quats can give rise to serious health and environmental problems, including antibiotic resistance, … Continue reading Toxic ingredient in disinfectants can give rise to antibiotic-resistant bacteria, birth defects and more

A dose of toxic synthetic chemicals: Researchers detect “forever chemicals” in California’s drinking water

Drinking water sources serving 7.5 million Californians are contaminated with toxic synthetic chemicals, according to a study from the Environmental Working Group (EWG), a nonprofit organization specializing in environmental research. These chemicals, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances or PFAS, are commonly called “forever chemicals,” as they are extremely resistant to degradation once they get released to the environment. Low doses … Continue reading A dose of toxic synthetic chemicals: Researchers detect “forever chemicals” in California’s drinking water

Tattoos can leak dangerous heavy metals into your lymph nodes, study finds

A recent study published in the journal Particle and Fibre Toxicology found that tattoos can leak dangerous metals into the lymph nodes and trigger an allergic reaction. The culprit is an abrasive chemical called titanium dioxide that erodes the ink needle and sheds the metals. The European researchers initially attributed the presence of metal nanoparticles in tattooed people’s lymph nodes to … Continue reading Tattoos can leak dangerous heavy metals into your lymph nodes, study finds
