GMOs, or genetically modified organisms, are in most of the foods and drinks we consume. Some studies show that the long-term effects of GMOs can cause damage to humans. Also, data shows that GMOs grown with pesticides and watered with chlorinated tap water result in higher numbers of food allergies. FARE, or Food Allergy Research and Education, says that researchers estimate that up to 15 million Americans suffer from some type of food allergy. Our children have it worse as this disease is exponentially growing every year. Presently, 1 in every 13 children in the US has a food allergy. The economic cost of this creates nearly $25 billion per year for America.
The most common allergies are those to dairy, peanuts, wheat, fish, shellfish, and soy. According to the CDC, these types of allergies make up 90 percent of food allergies. Symptoms vary from mild rashes to life-threatening allergic reactions. Many people carry Epi pens in case they are exposed to a food they are allergic to.
The specific chemical that causes issues for humans is dichlorophenols. It is a type of chlorine in some pesticides that kills bacteria. If consumed in large numbers, it can cause renal failure, damage organs, and in some situations even be fatal. Recently, researchers followed 10,348 participants in a U.S. National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. Of them, 2,548 had dichlorophenol levels measured in urine; 2,211 were included into the study. Food allergies were found in 411 of them, while 1,016 had environmental allergies. It was concluded that the pesticide chemical could be ingested from eating different fruits and some juices. This study suggested that the use of pesticides and other chemicals are indeed associated with food allergies. Unfortunately, it also showed that the trend is increasing.
Some people think that the easiest solution to prevent food allergies is to switch to bottled water so that they aren’t being exposed to as much chlorine. However, this is not the best solution because bottled water does not include all ingredients on its labels. One alternative is to know what you are buying by reading the labels. Luckily, organic foods follow specific codes where organic pesticides must be used in order to be labeled “organic.” Laundry and cleaning products with chlorine should be avoided. It is a good idea in getting a shower filter and find out exactly what is in your tap water. But the best solution is to invest in a whole house water filtration system that filters chlorine and chemicals out. You can save money while also saving water and your health. You and your family are worth the investment!

We’ve grown up thinking Fluoride was a good substance for our dental hygiene. In reality, it not only a toxin but a highly toxic fertilizer-industry byproduct that is in our municipal water supply. A water supply which ends up in our very own tap water at home, offices, and other locations. The city of Dallas is one of the many US cities considering the end of fluoridation in our water. The end of fluoridation in Dallas would make it the largest city in the US to stop fluoridating its water and save about $1.8 million dollars. What is making Dallas councillors change their minds about fluoridation?
Professor Paul Connett, who testified on June 11 about water fluoridation and the fluoride health risks. He presented various facts on the dangers of fluoride and how it is not a nutrient and that no biochemical process in humans need fluoride. The Food and Drug Administration classifies fluoride as an “unapproved drug.” 97% of Europe doesn’t even fluoridate their water so why are we? Most people believe that fluoride battles tooth decay but there are better alternatives such as dry brushing or baking soda. Alternatives that won’t lead to possible brain damage, which can be caused by fluoride. There are 11 known industrial chemicals that can harm the brain development in human fetuses and infants. There are currently 7 U.S. cities that have stopped fluoridation in their water supply.
If you are interested in reducing almost all of the fluoride in your water, consider purchasing a Filtercon under the counter and whole house systems. The Under The Counter filter has three stages where water is being filtered and conditioned by Activated Alumina, an Activated Carbon Block filter, and a Granulated Activated Carbon Block filter. It can be portable and used outside of your kitchen sink.
The Filtercon Whole House Fluoride Filter can be added to the Filtercon Whole House Water Filtration and Conditioning System for a completely maintenance free, great tasting, fluoride free water from every faucet, bath, and shower in your home. Your home tap water will undergo three stages of water filtration and conditioning. Stage one is Activated Alumina, which will reduce the fluoride and Stage two is up to 69 lbs of high grade coconut shell activated carbon. Stage three is up to 20lbs of Quartz (Nature’s own filtration media) and Stage four is K.D.F. 55 Medium considering of high purity copper zinc granules. The water passes through our patented HYDROMAGNETIC module which conditions the water non-chemically by restructuring and realigning the polarity of the mineral molecules without removing those healthy minerals from the water.

How to Save Water during a Drought
1. Conserve water by not running water while you wash the dishes or brushing your teeth.
2. When it rains, collect rainwater to water your garden.
3. Time your showers. The Green Cross recommends you cut off a minute of shower time, which can save about 3,600 litres of water per year.
4. Enjoy cold water? Keep a jug of tap water in the fridge to avoid running the water until it turns cold. Purchase an eco-friendly filtration system for your home to get pure water instead.
5. Don’t waste a drop of water. A faucet dripping water can waste around 15 litres of water a day. Be sure to fix leaking toilets or spinklers.
6. Fitting low-flow adapters on taps and using water efficient showerheads can make a difference.
7. Organic food does not use pesticides. Meat eaters should make a day a week ‘meatless.’ Those who love seafood and fish should make sure they are sustainably sourced.
8. Become informed about embedded water. Apples are 70 litres of embedded water. Hamburgers require 2,400 litres of water!
9. Avoid purchasing bottled water. Use a reusable water bottle with a filtration system to get the purest water possible anywhere.
10. Conserve uses of a washing machine or dishwasher. Only use when there is a full load for dishes or dirty laundry.
11. Recycle as much as you can. Recycle your electronics, papers, plastic, aluminum cans, and cardboard. Recycling one pound of water = 13 litres of water saved!
12. Remember to REDUCE, REUSE, and RECYCLE.
