Most people take water for granted. In so-called "modern" and "industrialized" nations, water is controlled by government, and this is no mistake on their part. Without water biological life ceases, from the simplest crop to humanity itself. Our bodies consist of more water than any other substance, just as do most crops we eat.
First of all, water is a money business. Secondly, he who controls the water controls the people. Most incorporated towns and counties in the corporate U.S. Federal States have ordinances against having your own water well. Why? Because they can't make money from you if you have your own water supply, and they can't control you if you have no dependency on them for water - the literal water of life for all living things.
Most towns and counties have banned new water wells and septic sytems based on their own internal assessment of associated "health hazards". Now, that's really ironic considering that the average well water (when dug to the proper depth for the specific land it is on) has less poisons and impurities than any chlorinated and flouridated community water system. Did any of these "officials" bother to find out that chemical flouride and chlorine are deadly poisons?
I have a friend in Missouri who has a natural year-round water spring on his land. His water was tested and found to be full of good colloidal trace minerals, no poisons, no harmful bacteria, nor anything else harmful.
I have somewhat shallow (80-90 ft.) water wells with reverse osmosis (RO) systems on my own houses in Florida and the Dominican. My water was tested at both locations and found to be void of any poisons, pollutants, or harmful microbes. The only drawback with reverse osmosis is the removal of good minerals from the water.
There is no comparison between deep sourced natural water supplies or properly filtered water (RO) with poisonous community "treated" water.
Chlorine and Your Drinking Water ~ Here's What The Experts Have To Say:
"The drinking of chlorinated water has finally been officially linked to an increased incidence of colon cancer. An epidemiologist at Oak Ridge Associated Universities completed a study of colon cancer victims and non-cancer patients and concluded that the drinking of chlorinated water for 15 years or more was conducive to a high rate of colon cancer." Health Freedom News, January/February 1987
"Long-term drinking of chlorinated water appears to increase a person's risk of developing bladder cancer as much as 80%," according to a study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. Some 45,000 Americans are diagnosed every year with bladder cancer. St. Paul Dispatch & Pioneer Press, December 17, 1987
"Although concentrations of these carcinogens are low...it is precisely these low levels which cancer scientists believe are responsible for the majority of human cancers in the United States." Report Issued By The Environmental Defense Fund
"Chlorine itself is not believed to be the problem. Scientists suspect that the actual cause of the bladder cancers is a group of chemicals that form as result of reactions between the chlorine and natural substances and pollutants in the water." (organic matter such as leaves and twigs.) St. Paul Dispatch & Pioneer Press, December 17, 1987
Treated Drinking Water Not Safe Enough: Harvard Study Shows Elderly Particularly Sensitive to Waterborne Hazards
"In Boston, ten percent of hospital admissions for people over age 65 for gastrointestinal (GI) illness can be blamed on harmful microbes in drinking water - this in a city with state-of-the-art water treatment - found researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health."
"Philadelphia obtains its drinking water from the highly contaminated rivers that flow through the city and treats that water in sophisticated treatment plants. However, many pathogens known to cause illness are resistant to chlorine, the primary disinfectant used in the plants
