what are you drinking?
I found a great website called Natural Society. I was pleased to find a site that is caught up in sharing news that is based on real time happenings in our world.
About Natural Society: “It is impossible to keep up with all of the latest health news that actually matters. That’s why we created Natural Society, your source for useful organic living tips, news, and life hacks that can take your health to the next level.”
Natural Society has lots to say about healthy water and asks if you know what are you drinking on several levels. It is my belief that anything I read anywhere today, that it should be taken with a grain of salt. I pick and choose what I think is reality, and it is usually based upon the sources.
I choose not to believe everything that I read but if I like what I’m reading, I take the best of it and try to apply it to the lifestyle that I am working to build for myself. And this is why I will take the tips of the best and share those with you in my website http://www.livingsimplehealth.com.
Natural Society, PO Box 516, Wallingford, PA 19086. If you would care to reach these people, they have made themselves very transparent! Here is their address and they do write back.
Here is the article that caught my attention. Obama Increases Allowable Levels Of Radiation In Drinking Water ‘Dramatically’ and I have copy and pasted most of the article below for you to read. Of course the first thing that came to my mind was the Fukushima disaster.
(**)”A government official from Japan stated “I was overwhelmed by the amount of contaminated water coming from the reactors, we must dump it in the ocean.” This isn’t such great news for the US since President Obama and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently gave their approval for “dramatically raising permissible radioactive levels in drinking water and soil following “radiological incidents,” such as nuclear power-plant accidents and dirty bombs.” (**)(Shunichi Tanaka, is the chairman of the Nuclear Regulation Authority, who made this comment Dec. 12 about dumping radioactive waste into the ocean.)
The EPA issued radiation guides called “Protective Action Guides” or “PAGs”. It has been said that these “PAGs” might have already been in the making for over the past two years, and just recently released for us, the American people, to view.
These “PAGs” are some of the work of an administrative assistant, by the name of Gina McCarthy. Obviously, working on a career also, she was nominated and approved and now serves as our new EPA Administrator. She was approved by the Senate a few months ago; nice coincidence?
Here is the scary part! These PAGs will now allow more radiation than any of us Americans have ever been exposed to, to be leaked into our universal systems. Within those PAGs lies a wide range of instruction for handling radiation emergencies. Evacuations, shelter-in-place orders, food restrictions, and other such actions that would happen following such “radiological emergencies”.
One would have to question if the disaster at Fukushima wasn’t such an “emergency” that should have fallen under the new group of PAGs that McCarthy worked on? Or maybe it did and we just don’t know anything about it yet?
These new PAGs allow for long-term exposure to radiation at 2,000 millirems, which is gigantic in proportion to the old number of millirems allowed.
The cancer rate expected with the old millirem allowance was expected at 1 in 10,000 persons. With the new allowance, the cancer rate is now expected to be 1 in 23 persons in a 30 year period. WOW; does McCarthy really even know what she is doing? This is exhausting to think about.
And of course, experts are calling for the expectation of a much higher level of cancer rates due to the new “allowable” levels of radiation exposure. 1 in 23 instead of 1 in 10,000? You do the math. The strange thing about this statement is that after reading it, I hear comments from people that don’t even act as though they believe this is “truth”. Instead, I’m hearing “well can we sue the government”? By the time anyone gets around to suing, or establishing that the government has really bad planning skills, at least 100 out of 2300 people will be dead from radiation caused cancer.
Here is the comment that PEER Executive Director, Jeff Ruch had to add and according to the story I read, he appeared to be fairly upset when he said it too:
“This is a public health policy only Dr. Strangelove could embrace. If this typifies the environmental leadership we can expect from Ms. McCarthy, then [the] EPA is in for a long, dirty slog.” “No compelling justification is offered for increasing the cancer deaths of Americans innocently exposed to corporate miscalculations several hundred-fold.”
People of America! If you aren’t dead next year from being slaughtered by ISIS and other such terrorist groups, then you can count on being very sick, if not dead, from the rules of our government administration! How much longer are we going to tolerate this kind of reign?

from my heart to you!
coke wouldn’t approve though!
The “Coke Is a Joke” infographic exposes the false weight loss and wellness claims of Coke in its diet soda line, which uses aspartame and other artificial sweeteners. Use the embed code to share it on your website.
I don’t know a whole lot about this subject. But I do know that it has me alarmed and worried for millions of people. And so I am just passing along information that I have found out here in magazines that I read, and on the internet; especially about our water and food. The soda industry doesn’t just include Coke either. There are hundreds, if not thousands of them. Quit drinking aspartame period!

I want to pass it on in hopes that I might be able to help anyone and everyone that reads what I write today. I care about people and I am scared for the many children at home drinking tap water that has already been exposed to radiation and the soft drinks that have permeated our homes. This is for anyone who cares to listen and to protect themselves and their families as much as, and wherever they can!
This page will be continuing due to the very importance of the topic. Water is the something that we cannot do without for very long. Humans have been known to go without food for periods of time but you cannot take their water away, they will perish. Feed them poisoned water and the poison will kill them. Maybe more slowly, or painfully, but in the end cancer is not something that I really want to die from. How about you?
And so I will come back to this topic here from time to time to update any new story as I might hear about it. I just want to thank you for stopping by to say hello and truly hope to hear from you in the comments section below.

drinking healthy water
Where does our drinking water come from? Do you really know anything about the water coming through your faucets at your home? It most likely comes through from a local reservoir around your city or state? Or perhaps you have a well somewhere on your property that you were able to tap in to. Do you think it is safe to drink? Are you drinking healthy water? Or is your drinking water contaminated by Fukushima?
Maybe like so many other people, you are now purchasing bottled drinking water. How do you know if that is really okay to drink? Did you study where it comes from or where it is bottled? I know there is the one that they advertise which claims to be “untouched by human hands and bottled at the source”. I highly doubt it.
What about your drinking water? Is your H2o contaminated or clean? It is possible that you purchase this more expensive drinking water for the assurance that it is what they say it is? Have you read my post about the food pyramid and how it came to be?
I am so very concerned about every single one of us who is drinking water from the tap in our homes today. Unless of course, you are able to purify the water before you drink it. My mother had a machine that distilled her water and she ran about two gallons per day through it. But still, I don’t know if distilling water will remove radiation from it? According to what I have read, I don’t think that it does.
I read an article (below) that mentioned what Obama has done to raise the limit of allowable radiation in our drinking water in case of an emergency such as the one at Fukushima!
What the article really told me was that those people in power, such as our president, can make decisions without looking to the people for answers. What the article tells me, if it is correct, is that Obama just signed a warrant that reassures we will have many more cancer ridden neighbors, friends, and family members soon.
But after I read more, I became even more scared (that deep down feeling of terror you get when you are really alarmed) and then I became extremely angry and I am quite sure that most of you already know what anger is like. Although different for each one of us, in the end, it’s pretty much all the same outcome (unless you have anger issues, of course).
If we are to blame those in power, how do we do that? We put them in the positions they now hold because we believed that they would protect us. Every nation around the world has some involvement in this nuclear holocaust and that is what it is going to become. Aren’t you scared about what is happening to our planet?
I sure the heck am when I hear that Obama raised the limit on the amount of radiation allowed in our drinking water. Whether we have an emergency or not, radiation leaks down into the soil and ground water and aquifers. What is he thinking? That it won’t happen to him? The article is claiming that it will be as bad as 1 in 23 people who develop cancer. What? Is this acceptable to you?
According to the scientists and people that study these events, the Pacific Ocean is now a dead zone. Fish are already showing cancerous growths and we are still eating fish pulled from the Pacific. What do they look like before we see them in the grocery store?
Before I get too far into describing what is going on in my head, let me share some of the things that I have been reading and there aren’t many ways to get around this drinking water problem. I won’t drink tap water anymore. I question all of the bottled water that I drink too. Boiling water? Yes, it can kill many bacteria but it doesn’t remove radiation.
Sorry, I hope that this hasn’t been too depressing for you. It has been for me. It’s not a nice thing to see all of the fish in a pond that have all died from radiation poisoning, let alone human beings.
Please come back tomorrow and see what we have to show you about how you can get clean drinking water, H2o without worry of radiation poisoning.

getting healthy water will soon be tricky!
Do you know how much radiation our bodies can take, can be exposed to before there is no turning back? I do not know; I haven’t studied this subject very much. Just knowing that my cat drinks from puddles outside, from the toilet if the lid is up, and even from his little water fountain makes me wonder when he will get cancer.
My soul is full of trepidation when I think about how far we have gone with so many things that are dangerous for this earth, and the things that we have allowed to get out of balance in our world.
Now, there is no turning back. All we can do is prepare for what will come in to our futures.
There are the few who keep yelling that we must stop killing the animals because they are going to be extinct if we don’t. The few that stand up and yell “stop” when they are building a new nuclear power plant. The few that dive down into the sea cutting open illegal tuna nets.
There are the few that stand up and yell when watching proud islanders who are waist deep in ocean water slaughtering pilot whales because it is just part of what they do every year. Those that cry and scream as bulls are stabbed, and slashed, as their tails are ripped from their bodies, all in the name tradition.
Don’t people get it? It doesn’t matter what we did last year or ten years ago. We cannot keep doing whatever it is because we are killing our planet. It doesn’t matter how many times you did it before. Things change and it’s time for everyone to take their turn and learn how to change.
There are thousands of things that we would stop or change if we could but fortunately, the world is a very diverse place and every civilization has its own way of doing things. I don’t think we want to start a big war over such things if people are unwilling to take part in saving our planet, do you?
Let me ask you this. What kind of fail safe do we have against the poisons reaching our part of the world from a melt down or failed reactor clear around the world? We already have Fukushima’s leakage in our water, everywhere in the U.S.
I would have to say that I don’t think that we have a choice of how much radiation leakage we get in an emergency or not. I don’t think the president has a choice in the matter either. Radiation will go where it goes and we don’t have a darn thing to say about it.
What happens is going to happen. The best that we can do now is to prepare for the worst and in this case, make sure that we can properly filter water that is coming in to our homes so that we don’t begin growing extra appendages, or that our male population suddenly starts giving birth.
I suppose that the president can call a disaster area or zone a disaster. He can put all kinds of restrictions into play. He can issue numbers to people for days when they can come and collect bottled water, emergency supplies at home, gasoline, etc. I’m quite sure that the EPA has a list a mile long of things that they can do to protect Americans from too much radiation. This all has a surreal feel to it.
And naturally, as with anything else, as demand rises for clean water, the price of water filtration systems will also increase. Then someone with big bucks will buy a store full of them, and charge five times the amount they normally go for. Or the government will take over distribution of the systems and there will be lines a mile long to get one.
That is how it is, this is how it always has been. Don’t you recall the lines to get your gasoline? The even or odd days when it was your turn to go and wait in line?
But realistically, that was then and this is now. Our world has a population that is stressing our limits to the brink of breaking. Disease such as diabetes has become epidemic. Our water is polluted all over the world; the Pacific Ocean is being called “dead”. We’re allowing Monsanto and Dow to manufacture chemicals that are being sprayed that are killing all of the honey bees, which have always been responsible for pollination and instead of pollination we are getting GMO seed to plant. And who knows what GMO food is going to do to humans ten years down the road.
In the mean time, we have a chance to help ourselves to get through this drinking water scare which will turn into a reality someday soon and install one of these water filtration systems in our homes. If you are not capable of installing one yourself as I am not, then coughing up the few extra dollars to have it installed professionally will be worth every penny for the 99% clean factor you get from it.
So, glad you stopped by to share. Let me know what you think and leave a comment or two; you thoughts are greatly appreciated.

filterING YOUR TAP WATER by reverse osmosis
THE ONLY WAY TO REMOVE RADIATION FROM YOUR DRINKING WATER
I have done some reading about these water filtration systems that people are using now more than ever in their homes. It is good for us that some engineer developed such a thing so that we can have clean water in our homes until the water becomes so bad that we will have to find another way.
In fact, after reading these water scares, which have been happening all over the U.S., I will be paying my nephew to install a filtration system with reverse osmosis as soon as the unit I ordered arrives. And yes, I live in an apartment right now. but the system I ordered sits out on top of my cupboard. When I move, I can give or donate this smaller unit to someone who needs one and I will purchase a larger one for the home I move to.
Here is an article I found of just one mishap in regards to drinking water in Texas.
“The State Concealed Dangerous Radiation In Drinking Water For Years
- An investigation into Texas water quality found some areas had consistently elevated levels of radioactive particles
- Residents were not warned of the radiation risks because officials from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) would subtract the margin of error from test results so that they would not violate federal limits for radiation in drinking water, even though tests performed by the agency showed the water exceeded the legal limit for alpha radiation
- The under-reporting of radiation levels in Texas drinking water continued until an EPA audit in 2009
- Filtering your water with a reverse osmosis filter can remove radioactive particles, while certain vitamins and other nutrients may help reduce the risk of radiation exposure”
And another quote from the EPA on radiation removal from tap water!
“The Environmental Protection Agency recommends reverse osmosis water treatment to remove radioactive isotopes that emit beta-particle radiation. But iodine-131, a beta emitter, is typically present in water as a dissolved gas, and reverse osmosis is known to be ineffective at capturing gases. Apr 7, 2011″ however while reverse osmosis probably does not catch iodine-131 adding a carbon filter to the unit will catch it.
**Removing all radioactive particles means removing everything, including iodine-131 which is emitted into the system as a gas and falls to the earth with rain, and gets into the water system in this manner. This is how radiation has gotten into the drinking water in Boise, Idaho and Richland, Washington.
This is why it is important to pick a water filtration system that handles all levels of poisons. The water filtration systems shown here contain a reverse osmosis filter and an ionizer and carbon filter. These three filter systems should more than adequately insure that you will get nothing but plain water as it passes through them. The carbon filter was added to insure that iodine-131, and cesium-137, and any other radionuclides from drinking water.
I believe in clean drinking water and I believe that my body has been hit with enough radiation throughout my life time through forced radiation. Through x-rays for my teeth every year, broken bones, surgeries, and then even through the Chernobyl disaster. I lost my thyroid about twenty-five years ago and I attribute that to the radiation I was exposed to from Chernobyl. So I know what radiation does to us because I was very sick for a long time before they could even remove my thyroid.
These filtration systems are not complex, they are compact and come ready to install. Most can be installed right under the kitchen sink. Mine will be installed on top of my counter as I have limited room wherever I turn in this apartment. I have also seen a stand alone unit; one that looks like those water coolers in the doctor’s office. There are even applications for your ice makers that can be installed so your ice is clean and free from these poisons. It’s amazing what they have done with the filtration units once they knew we were facing water contamination from radiation poisoning.
