BY MEANS OF WATER, WE GIVE LIFE TO EVERYTHING. CHLORINATED WATER!!
Good morning Tuesday,
Ahhh, Tuesday the day to remember all the things I didn't get done on Monday and push them off until Wednesday 🦋
Wow, 77 days of isolation and the 2nd day of June. The weather is getting hotter, so we had to put the air condition on here in Roanoke, Va. Our place does not have ceiling fans, so no breeze coming in the apartment. Not complaining for when we lived in Mexico, it was much hotter and we had no air condition. I’m grateful for being able to feel comfortable. How’s the weather where you are?

Continuing on the subject of pollution in our water, today's topic is chlorinated water that we are drinking and bathing in.
I posted way back on Thursday, September 8, 2011 on the blog this article.
WATER ~ CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT!!!!
SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT
Today I am going to speak about Water and how it could affect our health ~ Life.
I am going to go straight to the point. The cancer risk among those drinking chlorinated water is 93% higher than those who do not. Why; first we need to know exactly what it is?
Chlorine (Cl2) is among the ten highest volume chemicals manufactured in the United States. It is produced commercially by electrolysis of sodium chloride brine. Chlorine is used in industry and in household cleaning products. Chlorine was also the first poison gas to be used as a weapon during World War I.
Some of the chemical/physical properties of chlorine include:
Chlorine is a yellow-green gas at room temperature.
Chlorine has a pungent, irritating odor similar to bleach that is detectable at low concentrations.
The density of chlorine gas is approximately 2.5 times greater than air, which will cause it to initially remain near the ground in areas with little air movement.
Chlorine is not flammable, but may react explosively or form explosive compounds with many common substances (including acetylene, ether, turpentine, ammonia, natural gas, hydrogen, and finely divided metals).
Chlorine is slightly water soluble, and reacts with moisture to form hypochlorous acid (HClO) and hydrochloric acid (HCl).
Chlorine is commonly pressurized and cooled for storage and shipment as an amber-colored liquid.
Without water living is impossible.
How is chlorine used?
Chlorine has a variety of uses. It is used to disinfect water and is part of the sanitation process for sewage and industrial waste. During the production of paper and cloth, chlorine is used as a bleaching agent. It is also used in cleaning products, including household bleach which is chlorine dissolved in water.
Chlorine is used in the preparation of chlorides, chlorinated solvents, pesticides, polymers, synthetic rubbers, and refrigerants.
How can people be exposed to chlorine?
Given the ubiquity and volume of chlorine in industrial and commercial locations, widespread exposures could occur from an accidental spill or release, or from a deliberate terrorist attack.
Because chlorine is a gas at room temperature, exposure occurs via inhalation. People may also be exposed to chlorine through skin or eye contact, or through ingestion of chlorine-contaminated food or water.
“There’s plenty of water in the universe without life, but nowhere is there life without water.” — Sylvia A. Earle
What is chlorine’s mechanism of action?
The health effects of chlorine are primarily due to its corrosive properties. The strong oxidizing effects of chlorine cause hydrogen to split from water in moist tissue, resulting in the release of nascent oxygen and hydrogen chloride which produce corrosive tissue damage. The oxidation of chlorine may also form hypochlorous acid, which will penetrate cells and react with cytoplasmic proteins to destroy cell structure.

AND LOOK THEY ARE PUTTING IT IN OUR DRINKING WATER!
Most tap water also contains fluoride and for decades we have been told that fluoride is good for us. This led to thousands of deaths of Americans as well as weakening of the immune systems of the tens of millions more.
We were told to believe it was safe and an effective method of protecting teeth from decay and in fact is a lie. In recent years it’s been shown that fluoridation is neither essential for good health nor protective of teeth. What it does is poison our bodies and what we should all be asking is how and why does the public health policy and the American media continue to hype this and for everyone to live with the scientific disbelieve.
Did you know that sodium Fluoride is also one of the basic ingredients in both PROZAC (FLUoxetene Hydrochloride) and Sarin Nerve Gas (Isopropyl-Methyl-Phosphoryl FLUORIDE) - (Yes, folks the same Sarin Nerve Gas that terrorists released on a crowded Japanese subway train!). Let me repeat: the truth the American public needs to understand is the fact that Sodium Fluoride is nothing more (or less) than a hazardous waste by-product of the nuclear and aluminum industries. In addition to being the primary ingredient in rat and cockroach poisons, it is also a main ingredient in anesthetic, hypnotic, and psychiatric drugs as well as military NERVE GAS! Why, oh why then is it allowed to be added to the toothpastes and drinking water of the American people?
Love And 🦋 The Gentle 💓 Heart Are 💞 But
Ahhh, Tuesday the day to remember all the things I didn't get done on Monday and push them off until Wednesday 🦋 Love and the gentle heart are but 💞 a single thing 💗
SO NEXT TIME WE DRINK TAP WATER OR BRUSH OUR TEETH, REMEMBER WHAT ELSE WE ARE DOING TO OUR BODIES!!
Until tomorrow, there is this saying that heals the body which is, pure water is the world’s first and foremost medicine.
Look forward to tomorrow post on nitrates – which are especially dangerous to babies that drink formula milk. It restricts the amount of oxygen in the brain and cause the “blue baby” syndrome.
