    It has been shown that dietary aluminum increases the risk of Alzheimer disease. Yet our cities are allowed to put aluminum in our drinking water for no other reason than to make it look clean. Studies show that thousands of cases of Alzheimer's could have been prevented if there had been less than 100 micrograms per liter of aluminum in the drinking water they consumed yet the World Health Organization recommends a limit of up to 200 micrograms per liter.

    Do you know how much aluminum your city puts in your water?

    Is there a filter or water purifier that filters out aluminum?

    What about Fluoride in the water, as well?

    It's crazy how they aprove this, but yes there are filters for such and here's one i know of that works well and remove
    many things from the drinking water.



    Reverse Osmosis (RO) Water Filters

    Reverse osmosis successfully treats water with dissolved minerals and metals such as aluminum, arsenic, barium , it also will remove Fluoride


    Reverse osmosis successfully treats water with dissolved minerals and metals such as aluminum, arsenic, barium, cadmium, chloride, chromium, copper, fluoride, magnesium, iron, lead, manganese, mercury, nitrate, selenium, silver, sulfate, and zinc. RO is also effective with asbestos, many taste, color and odor-producing chemicals, particulates, total dissolved solids, turbidity, and radium. When using appropriate activated carbon pre-filtering (commonly included with most RO systems), additional treatment can also be provided for such "volatile" contaminants (VOCs) as benzene, MTBE, trichloroethylene, trihalomethanes, and radon. Essentially, reverse osmosis is capable of rejecting bacteria, salts, sugars, proteins, particles, dyes, heavy metals, chlorine and related by-products, and other contaminants that have a molecular weight of greater than 150-250 daltons. The separation of ions with reverse osmosis is aided by charged particles. This means that dissolved ions that carry a charge, such as salts, are more likely to be rejected by the membrane than those that are not charged, such as organics. The larger the charge and the larger the particle, the more likely it will be rejected.

    Arsenic,Bacteria and Viruses..........Effectively Removes
    Bad Tastes & Odors.......................Effectively Removes
    Chlorine........................................Effectively Removes
    Fluoride........................................Effectively Removes
    Hydrogen......................................Effectively Removes
    Sulfide..........................................Effectively Removes
    Heavy Metals.................................Effectively Removes
    Nitrates.........................................Effectively Removes
    Radon...........................................Significantly Reduces
    Sediment Iron VOC's......................Significantly Reduces

    We brought this out some time back, and guess what, it still applies. I must give brother brown_hOrnet all the credit for this find.

    You know whats crazy...And other people that I've asked haven't seemed to notice this...But I don't drink water out of the tap unless I'm desperately thirsty, but on a few occasions I have smelt this metallic smell in the water coming out of my sink and shower

    If you come to Philadelphia....

    Do not drink the tap water. An independent testing agency found levels of lead, arsenic, various metals...even small traces of narcotics and anti-depressents. I think the testing was done in April of 2010. It's frightening.

    We have water cooler dispensers with Poland Spring and use it to steam our food.

    There is as of yet, no evidence to determine which comes 1st, Aluminum or Alzheimers. Thus, to attach a cause and effect is without merit at this time.

    There is also no connection to fluoride in water

    Is Dementia Caused By Aluminum Through Fluoridation?
    The messy science of fluoridation and its impact on older adults


    The link between fluoridation and ill health is not a direct one but involves the uptake of a known nerve toxic aluminum. Correlational studies linking aluminum with Alzheimer’s disease have been published since 1965 ...

    In Flint, Michigan, a crisis over lead levels in tap water

    ... Mays says the water quality directly impacted all three of her children’s health, potentially with long-term consequences. Tests confirmed that everyone in the family has high levels of lead, copper, aluminum, tin and chromium in their bloodstream ...

    The government may not be telling you the true story about what is happening in Flint.

    Fluoridated water may be to blame for the recent trouble with the water supply in Flint, according to top scientists. The toxic effects that people are seeing and feeling may not only be due to lead poisoning, but could be the side effects of fluoride toxicity.
