The Flint water crisis still shows no sign of abating. CNN reports that the questionable water supply is probably responsible for a Legionnaires disease outbreak in 2014 that killed at least 12 people. This catastrophe ran parallel to the lead level scandal that captured headlines.
The Flint water crisis has been a health catastrophe for residents since at least spring 2014, but the situation is far from being resolved. A lifetime of health damage was done to the residents of Flint and it is important that residents of this beleaguered city are not forgotten.
The Flint crisis unmasked an unpleasant truth. The “potable” water provided by many municipalities is something you should never drink. The scandal also revealed contaminated drinking water to be a nationwide and systemic problem.
Filtering your household water is no longer optional. Water pollution is a significant problem. Your drinking water may be contaminated with gender-bending pharmaceutical drugs, agricultural runoff, industrial waste and heavy metals released by deteriorating infrastructure. There is also the issue of the toxic chemicals used during water treatment.
The obvious solution is to filter all the water that comes into the house, and then filtering it again at the kitchen sink and shower. An even more healthful solution is to consume living water. Energized water can recharge your mitochondria, and deep springs are one excellent source. You can also promote structured water through vortexing or cooling it to 39 degrees Fahrenheit. Reverting tap water back into a vitality boosting element can provide enormous health benefits.
