Microscopic DANGER Hiding in Your Water?
A patient of mine, we’ll call her “Mary”, walked into my office one day, looking rather disheveled.
She dropped her purse onto the floor, pulled out a water bottle and took a big swig.
Seeing this, I quietly suggested that she might want to make another choice about what she was drinking.
“What’s wrong with water?” she said. “I thought you were supposed to get eight glasses a day?”
I shook my head, “It has nothing to do with the water.”
Rather, there was something else far more alarming.
It’s true, your body needs water almost more than anything else.
You can survive weeks without food, vitamins, or minerals. A few days without water and you’re toast.
BUT, what matters even more is where you get your water.
The wonderful water industry — (cue sarcasm) — wants you to believe that their product is GOOD for you. Look at all the wonderful images of the fresh outdoors on any bottle of water and you’d think their product is pure and clean.
But that couldn’t be farther from the truth. In fact, most bottled water comes from the same tap you and I get our water from. What’s worse…studies show that bottled water contains lead, mercury, bacteria, and other POISONS.
And now, recent research has found another problem.
A new study, published in the journal Frontiers in Chemistry, analyzed 259 bottles of water sold across the entire world and found that 93 percent of bottled water contained small plastic particles called microplastics.
Most of the plastic is not visible to your eye, but some actually are…
And these microplastics get into the bottle during manufacturing.
The research team found an average of 325 microplastic particles per liter of bottled water.
Nestle pure life water had the largest concentration, with one sample containing a staggering 10,000 microplastic particles per liter of water.
A 2018 study found microplastics in stool samples of nearly half of the people they tested!
So if you want clean water, skip the plastic bottle and use filtered water whenever you can.
The only way to ensure you have clean water is to filter it at your home. Even if your municipal water authority swears your water is safe, they’re just testing it at the plant.
It still has miles to travel in pipes before it gets to your house. And Who knows what your water runs into along the way?
Ultimately, you can’t control what happens to the water before it gets to your house, but you can control what happens after.
If you want to make sure you have clean drinking water, make sure you invest in a good filter.

But what if I told you that you could dramatically LESSEN your risk for diabetes...
Dear Reader, Recently, Jim, a friend of mine, was talking about how miserable his life had become following a motorcycle accident. Sitting across from me, he explained was having trouble working, sleeping, and he felt nervous all the time. It surprised Jim to find out the poor sleep and anxiety were probably a side effect of painkillers he was taking. And, unfortunately, Jim is not alone....
If you’re like most of us, you’d do just about anything to never lose your eyesight. That’s why you never skip a serving of eye-enhancing leafy greens or carrots.

Dear Reader, As long as we have had civilizations, we’ve had diseases that sweep through them. In the Middle Ages, it was the black plague and cholera.

Dear Reader, If you don’t already know, your body hates chronic inflammation. A recent study followed more than 160,481 people for 15 years. And the research team found that the people with the highest inflammation were more likely to die from all causes. Now, many doctors and scientists suggest that inflammation is a normal part of aging. But don’t buy that nonsense. There...
Dear Reader, I’m going to be honest — I‘ve never been a fan of hand sanitizers. Most hand sanitizers use strong antibiotics or caustic chemicals to kill bacteria and viruses. When used all the time, hand sanitizers just end up creating super bugs which are resistant to everything we can throw at them. Nevertheless, there are times when you need perfectly clean hands and...

Dear Reader, Have you started noticed troubling signs that you’re getting older? Like maybe you’ve found yourself sitting down to read a magazine only to realize you just can’t see the tiny words clearly without holding it at arm’s length… (Perhaps you’ve already caved in and bought a pair of reading glasses…) Or have you felt embarrassed as you stumble over words during conversations?...
