Chlorinated water heightens cancer risk

People who drink or bath, shower and swim in chlorinated water may be at increased risk for bladder cancer, says a Spanish study in the American Journal of Epidemiology – January 22, 2007.

The study results showed the following rick increases:

  • 35% when drinking chlorinated water
  • 57% when swimming in chlorinated water
  • 83% when showering or bathing in chlorinated water

If you care about your health, filtering your household water is more a necessity than an option these days. Pollutants have become a very significant problem that simply cannot be ignored any longer.

Clean, pure water is essential for good health, and I strongly encourage you to filter/conditioning the water entering your house – a must for each home, to protect your family in the long term.

This means filtering all the water that comes into the house, and then filtering your drinking water further at the kitchen sink, after which our natural mineral concentrate, which  also structurizes the water, should be added.

In fact, immersing yourself in ‘chlorine and/or heavy metals contaminated’ tap water may be even more hazardous to your health than drinking it, as can be seen in the study quoted above, since the chemicals absorbed through your skin enter unaltered into your blood stream, bypassing your digestive and internal filtration systems. During a relaxing bath your body absorb more bad water than your normal drinking water intake was for the day.

Tap water can expose you to dangerous chlorine vapours, whilst the following are found in the  water of some areas of our country, radioactive isotopes and heavy metals like uranium, arsenic, aluminium, cadmium, iron, lead, manganese, mercury, radium, vanadium and other toxins like nitrates and drugs, including antibiotics, hormones, etc., and some of which are carcinogenic (cancer causing).

The system is installed outside the house at the point of entering the house, after the pressure reducing valve and the T-off to the garden reticulation. The garden water is normally excluded to reduce the filter size and cost.

However, by also installing a Catalytic Ionising Conditioner (having no maintenance), the garden water will be excellent for plant growth and high vegetable yield.

Our ISOGRAM filter is used for the effective removal and isolation of radioactive isotopes, heavy metals and other toxins, from the water.

The granular absorption medium in the filter efficiently scavenges these toxins from the water.

The filter medium offers both ion exchange and superior mechanical filtration properties, absorbing toxins and heavy metals on atomic level by means of a powerful negative charge that exists within the structure, attracting the positively charged contaminants, and isolating them within its honeycomb structure.

The effectiveness of this unique medium has been most successfully demonstrated during the post-accident clean-up of both the Three Mile Island and Chernobyl nuclear disasters.

Carbon Block Filter:

The carbon block (part of filter) removes gaseous and low weight molecules such as chlorine, herbicides, pesticides etc.  As water passes through the carbon, low weight contaminants adhere to the carbon.

The carbon in a sense ‘holds on’ to the contaminants.  Carbon filters have a pore size of less than 1 micron to 50 microns, however it does not rely on the filtering/straining action alone … it’s main function is to actually adsorb (not absorb), or ‘grab-on’ to low weight and gaseous chemicals as they come into contact with the media.

Carbon block filters reduces a specific part of the spectrum of contaminants (it does not remove metals significantly), hence the ISOGRAM filter is used in conjunction with the carbon filter. It therefor greatly improves the health of the water since it takes care of the main culprits toxifying your body namely heavy metals and the excess chlorine which is carcinogenic.
