Sandbranch: The Town Without Water

Posted by: Rhona Reid On December 7, 2017 12:00 pm

 
There has never been running water here.  Some of the dwindling number of residents, all of whom live in poverty, recall that there were wells up until around 30 years ago, where locals could draw water. Those wells are now dry or contaminated.  People who live here have to make a seven-mile journey to buy water or depend on donations made to the local Baptist church.

Welcome to Sandbranch, just 14 miles southeast of Dallas, the fifth wealthiest city in America.  

Welcome to Sandbranch.
Forgotten Community?

There hasn’t been any investment here for a long time.  The community doesn’t have trash collections, proper sewerage or street lighting – yet most of the residents don’t want move, or lack

The Future for Flint’s Children

Posted by: Rhona Reid On November 21, 2017 7:00 am

 
In 1990, the New England Journal of Medicine published the results of an 11-year study into the long term cognitive and neurobehavioral effects of lead exposure in children.  

What are the long terms behavioral effects of lead exposure for children?
What Does Lead Do?

The children had been exposed to lead during their childhood, in some cases relatively low levels.  132 test subjects were re-examined in 1988 and the following neurobehavioral traits were identified as being related to lead exposure during childhood:

  • School absenteeism
  • Lower vocabulary
  • Poorer hand/eye co-ordination
  • Slower reaction times
“No Safe Level of Lead”

Although some lead can be excreted by the body, children are more susceptible to long term effects from lead exposure, as their

Drinking Plastics – Why Our Water Infrastructure Just Can’t Cope (Plastics Series: Part III)

Posted by: Rhona Reid On October 19, 2017 12:00 pm

 
We recently looked at the plastics that we unknowingly drink when we crack open a fresh bottle of water or turn on the tap.  America is the world leader in plastic fiber contamination, with a horrifying 94% of nationwide samples testing positive.  India and Lebanon are the closest runners-up; but for now, the dubious honor of topping the plastic fiber contamination table belongs to us.  

Sometimes being first isn’t so great…
Plastic is Not Fantastic

Plastic fibers are expelled into the air and into our water supply all the time.  The problem is that our current methods of treating drinking water are inadequate.  That’s not a new fact; horror stories about the problems with America’s water infrastructure

Don’t Worry – Get a Water Ionizer

Posted by: Rhona Reid On August 29, 2017 7:00 am

 
Are you one of the 63% of people in America worried about the ongoing water crisis?  The data from Gallup’s annual Environment poll, which was conducted in March 2017, shows that a large majority of people are concerned about the safety of their drinking water.

Are you one of the 63%?
Worried?

Gallup first started tracking polled results regularly in 1999.  The findings show that people are more worried about water safety than they have been since 2001.  The collective concerns undoubtedly reflect the media spotlight that has unflinchingly shone on America’s water infrastructure problems, widely uncovered as a result of the Flint crisis.

The $1Trillion Problem

It’s no surprise that so many people worry about environmental pollution …

Is a Water Ionizer Much Better Than a Standard Filter?

Posted by: Rhona Reid On July 27, 2017 12:00 pm

 
A water ionizer is usually a bigger investment than a standard, faucet-mounted water filter, so how do they compare?

So how does a standard filter compare to a water ionizer?
  • What’s In the Water? With a point-of-use water filter, you need to start with your source water and what’s in it.  No water filter of this kind is going to remove all organic, chemical and toxic contaminants.  You need to know that the type of filter you opt for will take out the worst of what’s in your water.

A Tyent Water Ionizer filter has the same micron level and filtration capabilities as a kidney dialysis machine, removing over 200 contaminants including 99% of lead, and up to …
