The Nasty Truth About Your Drinking Water!

Here's the truth about your drinking water (and what you can instantly do about it!) ... don’t let it kill you! ...

Today I want to scare you (a lot, in fact!)

Really, I do... Why? ... So that you will take action and take care of yourself using this little "secret" I'm going to give you (that although small, will help you in a really big, big way!)

By now everyone's heard the saying "If you are going to Mexico on vacation have fun, but be sure not to drink the water!"

Why do we say that? Is Mexico a horrible place?

It's nice ... I've vacationed there countless times!

The main reason people say this is because there may be "parasites" or "toxins" in the water we're not ready for, or resistant against. And if we drink it, we may get really, really sick -- even die!

But now here's the scary part:

In the United States the water may be just as "sickening" (and maybe even worse!)

I can already hear a few "patriots" screaming "Let's hang the chick!" (Let's not hang her just yet, shall we?)

Read this excerpt directly from the EPA's website:

"Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be
expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants."

Naturally some would argue that this is only reasonable, right?

But here's more ...

"Coliform bacteria are common in the environment and are generally
not harmful. However, the presence of these bacteria in drinking
water is usually a result of a problem with the treatment system
or the pipes which distribute water, and indicates that the water
may be contaminated with germs that can cause disease.

"Fecal Coliform and E coli are bacteria whose presence indicates
that the water may be contaminated with human or animal wastes.
Microbes in these wastes can cause short-term effects, such as
diarrhea, cramps, nausea, headaches, or other symptoms.

"Turbidity has no health effects. However, turbidity can interfere
with disinfection and provide a medium for microbial growth.
Turbidity may indicate the presence of disease causing organisms.
These organisms include bacteria, viruses, and parasites that can
cause symptoms such as nausea, cramps, diarrhea, and associated

"Cryptosporidium is a parasite that enters lakes and rivers through
sewage and animal waste. It causes cryptosporidiosis, a mild
gastrointestinal disease. However, the disease can be severe or
fatal for people with severely weakened immune systems. EPA and
CDC have prepared advice for those with severely compromised
immune systems who are concerned about Cryptosporidium.

"Giardia lamblia is a parasite that enters lakes and rivers through
sewage and animal waste. It causes gastrointestinal illness (e.g.
diarrhea, vomiting, cramps)."

Now this last one is nasty. I was stupid enough to drink water while on a golf course in Bali, Indonesia. Twelve months later after several courses of antibiotics and losing 10 lb I finally got rid of these pests. Definitely not the way to lose weight. Having to stop the car every time after being out for a nice meal with friends and vomiting in the gutter is
not my recommended experience.

And how about that part about the parasite "Cryptosporidium" being potentially fatal? (How nice!)

And if you want to read the rest from the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) website, just go here now:


Now you're probably thinking "That's just great! Every time I turn around someone or something's out to get me!" right?

While this may be somewhat true, it does NOT mean that you have to allow yourself to become a "victim." (How weak would you be then?)

In fact, my advice to you is that you arm yourself in the same way someone would if they knew they were about to be "attacked" by a dangerous and deadly enemy!

I mean, you wouldn't just sit back and let someone kill you, would you? Or lay a hand on your family, right?

So why allow "little critters" to kill you just because you either can't see them, or because you keep lying to yourself trying to convince yourself they aren't "really" there to begin with?
