Methyl tertiary butyl ether may be on tap in the kitchen

Drinking eight glasses of water a day is a great idea. Drinking eight glasses of water with contaminates is not a great idea.

Drinking the doctor-recommended eight glasses of water per day a good thing to do for one’s health. The problem is getting that water from a source that is not contaminated. To be safe, make that source a water distiller or have a water distillation installed in the home. Drinking water directly from the tap is not a smart move – not when it contains, at the very least, 2,100 toxic chemicals and over 80,000 synthetic man-made chemicals.

One of those chemicals, and it’s a common one used as a gas additive, is methyl tertiary butyl ether. This is a known water contaminant in over 1,800 communities in the U.S. and at least 29 states. It has been linked to leukemia and lymphoma. Those with water distillers in their homes and people using water distillation systems don’t need to worry about this.

While many people think the economy, health care and immigration are major problems in the U.S., an even larger problem is water contamination. Everyone needs water to stay healthy. Our bodies are at least 70 percent water. We need water to flush out our systems; to cleanse us. Following that line of thinking, if we’re swallowing contaminated water, this isn’t going to do us any good. In fact, it will eventually end up causing a whole lot of problems.

Think no one is worried about the water and that the government doesn’t much care? That’s likely an astute assessment. A quick look at recent media articles reveals that violations of anti-state pollution statues and the Clean Water Act have risen dramatically in the past few years. This is not good news. Every violation means there is more goop in the water; goop that may cause lung cancer, birth defects, brain cancer, leukemia and lung disorders.

Recent research is indicating that at least 10 percent or more of Americans has been directly exposed to contaminated water, and that harmful toxins in the water are on the increase, not in a decline. One other scary statistic is that these same researchers also found there were, on average, at least 200 contaminants and industrial chemicals in umbilical cord samples.
