    YOU BETTER START DRINKING BOTTLED WATER.. or get a GOOD CHARCOAL FILTER SYSTEM.
    Boiling WATER will not kill the medications.
    • Ever wonder why many people...are showing signs of asthma, getting strange illnesses.. cancer, and having breathing problems, neurological illnesses?
    Our water is full of drugs and we don’t know their effects

    Our water is full of drugs and we don’t know their effects

    Water reuse means we are all consuming a cocktail of other people's leftover medicines, but measuring their impact is almost impossible. It's time we clean up our act
    newscientist.com


    PICK up a glass, fill it from the tap and take a sip.

    You have just had a tiny dose of the pill your neighbor took days before.
    Excreted and flushed through our sewage works and waterways, drug molecules are all around us.

    A recent analysis of streams in the US detected an entire pharmacy: diabetic meds, muscle relaxants, opioids, antibiotics, antidepressants and more. Drugs have even been found in crops irrigated by treated waste water.

    The amounts that end up in your glass are minuscule, and won’t lay you low tomorrow.
    However, someone prescribed multiple drugs is more likely to experience side effects, and risks rise exponentially with each drug taken by a person over 65. So could tiny doses of dozens of drugs have an impact on your health?

    No one knows what it means if you have a lifelong uptake of drugs at very low concentrations, says Klaus Kümmerer at the University of Lüneburg, Germany.

    These drugs have been individually approved, but we haven’t studied what it means when they’re together in the same soup, says Mae Wu at the National Resources Defense Council

    Thirty years ago, no one paid attention to endocrine disruptors artificial chemicals found in a variety of materials. These environmental contaminants are now linked to breast cancer and abnormal development in children. The cocktail in our water involves many more compounds, so we can't afford to wait for negative effects to emerge.

    The issue of drugs in our water came to a head earlier this year ...

    What is Transverse Myelitis (TM)? | Johns Hopkins Transverse Myelitis Center

    Transverse Myelitis (TM) is an inflammatory disorder that affects a restricted area of the spinal cord.
    hopkinsmedicine.org

    What is Transverse Myelitis?
    four classic symptoms of transverse myelitis:

    • weakness in the arms/legs
    • sensory symptoms such as numbness or tingling
    • pain and discomfort
    • bladder dysfunction and/or bowel motility problems
    The distribution of those symptoms may be symmetric or asymmetric affecting either legs, arms or both.

    The word transverse indicates dysfunction at a particular level across the spinal cord, however this term may be misleading as there is not always complete anatomical damage across the cord, but rather focal inflammation that may produce asymmetric spinal cord dysfunction below the level affected while function above such level is normal. So we frequently prefer to use the term myelitis.

    Causes of Transverse Myelitis
    The cause of 60% of TM cases may remain unknown despite the presence of inflammatory mechanisms.

    Brown water, beaver battle among early signs of water woes

    ATLANTA (AP) — Beaver dams have been demolished, burbling fountains silenced, and the drinking water in one southern town has taken on the light brownish color of sweet tea.

    Though water shortages have yet to drastically change most people's lifestyles, southerners are beginning to realize that they'll need to save their drinking supplies with no end in sight to an eight-month drought ...

Though water shortages have yet to drastically change most people's lifestyles, southerners are beginning to realize that they'll need to save their drinking supplies with no end in sight to an eight-month drought. Already, watering lawns and washing cars is restricted in some parts of the South, and more severe water limits loom if long-range forecasts of below-normal rain hold true through the rest of 2016.
