"Drinking water is like washing out your insides. The water will cleanse the system, fill you up, decrease your caloric load and improve the function of all your tissues." - Kevin Stone
According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, U.S. National Library of Medicine, chemical pollutants can depress the immune system. They warn that the resultant damage to the immune system may be associated with pathological conditions, that only become evident after a long period of time. In addition, exposure to immunotoxic xenobiotics can present additional risks to individuals with fragile immune systems, infants, and the elderly.
Common xenobiotics that we're exposed to daily include household cleaners, dishwashing and laundry detergent, pharmaceutical compounds, plastics, herbicides and pesticides.
Xenobiotics are highly toxic, and early exposure can lead not only to a suppressed immune system, but to endocrine disorders, liver toxicity. infertility, cancer, and even obesity.
In addition, the NCBI warns of an increased risk of colorectal cancers in people exposed to chlorinated drinking water or chemical derivatives of chlorination.
The respected Environmental Working Group claims that their laboratory tests found toxic fluorinated chemicals known as PFAS in the drinking water of dozens of U.S. cities. PFAS are particularly hazardous because once released into the environment they never break down, and build up in our blood and organs.
The highest risks posed by PFAS are cancer, and harm to a developing fetus. Studies done by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that the blood of nearly all Americans is contaminated with PFAS.
Our water is a highly toxic brew that can wreak havoc with our health unless we filter it. The single most important step that you can take today to ensure the functioning of your immune system and to protect your health is to filter your water.
