Arsenic

If you knew what was in tap water you would never drink it again

(NaturalNews) Water is essential to all life on Earth. When it comes to humans, our bodies require water for virtually every biological process needed to stay alive.
Playing a crucial part in the body's overall digestive system, water helps to flush out your kidneys and liver, and to rid your body of any previously ingested toxins.

Protecting us from arsenic

By Lowe: When newborns and fetuses are exposed to arsenic, it can increase the chances of premature death, a lower birth weight and brain difficulties.

In adults, this heavy metal suppresses the immune system and drives inflammation, the silent disease behind the chronic diseases that are our biggest killers today.

For babies, the best way to lower newborns’ arsenic exposure is breastfeeding.

Near-zero levels of arsenic found to significantly impair intelligence and reasoning of U.S. schoolchildren


As Natural News readers and fans already know, we're hot on the trail pinpointing sources of heavy metals and understanding how they impair our physical and mental health. Now a groundbreaking study conducted in the United States on arsenic in drinking water has found something truly astounding: a mere 5 parts per billion (.005 ppm) of arsenic caused "reductions in Full Scale, Working Memory, Perceptual Reasoning and Verbal Comprehension scores" in children.

How arsenic blocks the body from removing other heavy metals


The dangers associated with the heavy metal arsenic extend far beyond just its direct effects on immunity and cognitive function. A recent study published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives (EHP) reveals that chronic exposure to this deadly poison actually prevents the body from naturally removing many other toxic heavy metals like lead, mercury, iron and cadmium, allowing them to gradually accumulate in tissues and the brain.

Breakthrough technology removes arsenic from groundwater


There's more to H2O than meets the eye. Life-threatening amounts of heavy metals like arsenic can go undetected in drinking water, ultimately destroying the health of entire communities. The most acute exposures are witnessed in countries like India and Bangladesh, where people show signs of arsenic poisoning, or arsenicosis. Arsenic poisoning can cause painful lesions, diabetes, cancer, blood vessel diseases and gangrene, forcing some to undergo amputation or be ostracized from their village.
