Pesticides and Heart Disease.. and more…

pesticideOrganophosphates and carbamates are the more common active ingredients of household, garden, and farm insecticides, and are highly toxic to all animals and humans. What do they do to the heart? In a 2004 study, 37 adults were admitted to a Singapore hospital with acute pesticide poisoning (organophosphates or carbamate) over a
three-year period, and 62 percent of these patients later developed cardiac complications.
But just to give you an idea of how these chemicals can be prevalent without you even knowing it, consider the work of Theo Colborn, Ph.D., who found that the herbicide 2,4 D (the most widespread herbicide) was detected in 50 percent of semen samples from a group of Canadian men ages 20 to 59. He also found that the pesticide CPF was detected in 82 percent of urine samples tested. These are just two pesticides that were tested out of more than 1,400 known pesticides that have been developed! And you thought you were pretty
safe from environmental toxins? They are quite likely contributors to the outrageous rates of heart attacks and cancers seen in younger aged people each year.

A Few Words from Erin Brokovich that just About Summarize why you need the best water filter you can afford. Now.

“We are in a water crisis beyond anything you can imagine. Pollution and toxins are everywhere, stemming from the hazardous wastes of industry and agriculture. We’ve got more than 40,000 chemicals on the market today with only a few hundred regulated. We’ve had industrial byproducts discarded into the ground and into our water supply for years. This crisis affects everyone – rich or poor, black or white, Republican or Democrat. Communities everywhere think they are safe when they are not.

I am always in wonder at how some people complain about having no money.. and yet seem to have a blind spot on what they spend money on. Luckily for Mr Shanshan (whom I bet you’ve never heard of!) there are enough blind spotters in the world for him to become the 6th richest man in the world.
