Fluoride in our water

Children in fluoridated countries are greatly over-exposed to fluoride. When fluoridation began in 1940s, 10% of children were expected to develop dental fluorosis (damage to the enamel involving discoloration and/or mottling) in its very mild form. Today, the prevalence in fluoridated countries is much higher—41% of all American children aged 12-15 are now impacted with some form of dental fluorosis (CDC, 2010), with over 10% in categories (mild, moderate and severe) that may need expensive treatment.

Hot Showers and premature aging

In today's society, everyone showers and bathes in heavily chlorinated water on a regular basis. Chlorine is a useful chemical that is used to treat our tap water and make it safe for drinking. Unfortunately it is also a toxic and abrasive chemical substance that is extremely irritating on human skin and lungs. When you take a shower, the heat opens up your pores and your skin absorbs large amounts of chlorine from both the water and the steam. [...]

Water Testing in the U.S.

The 2011 Healthy Pools campaign reported that half of U.S. swimming pools tested had improper pH and chlorine levels. Just this week, a study released by the National Ground Water Assn. found that 40% of the Pennsylvania private wells it tested exceeded health or aesthetic standards.These studies tell us that homeowners are not regularly testing or properly treating the water they use everyday.

The Filtration Process

The filtration process: This filter media blocks passage of contaminants through physical obstruction The filtration process involves some type of filter media, over which water flows. This filter media blocks passage of contaminants through physical obstruction, chemical adsorption, or a combination of both processes. Material construction of the filter media varies widely, but the most effective... medias are made from carbon or a combination of carbon with other elements. Modern filtration technology allows water filters to remove more and more [...]

Advanced Modern Water Purification Methods

Water filtration by definition simply means to strain out the impurities from a water source. The larger the impurity particulate, the easier it is to filter. The opposite is true: the smaller the impurity particulate, the harder it is to remove. Thus, the size of the filter pore and the durability of the filtering element are important to the filter's longevity and its ability to perform. Most filtering elements are made of ceramic, glass fiber, hard-block carbon, or materials [...]

Analyze the effects of Physical Water Treatment Systems.

Following your request, we examined the device for, physical water treatment by the  name of “Amp Force unit” you provided to us in various experimental set-ups, to find modifying effects on hard water, and found a comparably high effectiveness under the respective conditions.It is a known fact that several scientific institutes dealing with water have in the majority expressed doubts about the effectiveness of physical water treatment systems, as scientific proof did not seem to be achieved, although numerous [...]
