Hexavalent Chromium Was Just Found In 75% Of US Drinking Water

Water is the most valuable resource to mankind, it makes up over 75% of our bodies, and quality of water directly correlates to the quality of human health. Our water has been contaminated with Fluoride, Chloramines and Monsanto’s cancer-causing Glyphosate.

Now an Environmental Working Group review of government water analysis data reveals that 75% of drinking water in America is contaminated with cancer-causing hexavalent chromium (also known as chromium-6).

Naturalnews reports:

In a widely publicized report, EWG warns that 200 million Americans are right now being exposed to this toxic chemical in their water. This is on top of our own efforts at EPAwatch.org where my lab tested hundreds of municipal water samples from across the country and

This is on top of our own efforts at EPAwatch.org where my lab tested hundreds of municipal water samples from across the country and found high levels of lead and other heavy metals in 6.7% of samples.

What is Hexavalent chromium [Cr(VI)] ?

Hexavalent chromium [Cr(VI)] is one of the valence states (+6) of the element chromium. It is usually produced by an industrial process. Cr(VI) is known to cause cancer. In addition, it targets the respiratory system, kidneys, liver, skin and eyes. Chromium metal is added to alloy steel to increase hardenability and corrosion resistance. A major source of worker exposure to Cr(VI) occurs during “hot work” such as welding on stainless steel and other alloy steels containing chromium metal. Cr(VI) compounds may be used as pigments in dyes, paints, inks, and plastics. It also may be used as an anticorrosive agent added to paints, primers, and other surface coatings. The Cr(VI) compound chromic acid is used to electroplate chromium onto metal parts to provide a decorative or protective coating. [source]

Workplace exposure to hexavalent chromium may cause the following health effects:

• Lung cancer in workers who breathe airborne hexavalent chromium
• Irritation or damage to the nose, throat, and lung (respiratory tract) if hexavalent chromium is breathed at high levels
• Irritation or damage to the eyes and skin if hexavalent chromium contacts these organs in high concentrations.

But isn’t Hexavalent chromium naturally occurring ?

There are always those will try and tell you that these deadly toxins are perfectly safe to consume, they’ll make the claim that they are naturally occurring and therefore perfectly safe. It can be naturally occurring, but then again Lead and Mercury are also naturally occurring – but you would think again before drinking water contaminated with these heavy metals, wouldn’t you?

From the EPA website:

Chromium-6 occurs naturally in the environment from the erosion of natural chromium deposits. It can also be produced by industrial processes. There are demonstrated instances of chromium being released to the environment by leakage, poor storage, or inadequate industrial waste disposal practices.

In today’s World a water filter system should be top on your list to buy, our water is becoming more and more toxic, and with the intervention of our Governments, adding Chloramines and Fluoride, along with the constant contamination from the industrious environment we now find ourselves in – it may just save your life!
