America’s Water Crisis: Now In Cinemas

Posted by: Rhona Reid On January 16, 2020 2:56 pm

In polarizing times, it can be good to have things that bring us together. But not always.

There’s a common characteristic that tens – possibly hundreds – of millions of Americans share: our drinking water is contaminated with carcinogenic PFAS (Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances).

Will Hollywood help to get the word out about the Water Crisis?

The statistics are mind-boggling. While officials and politicians attempt to oscillate between publicly minimizing the risk and attempting to deal with it, more Americans carry on drinking contaminated water.

Hollywood’s Role

With its finger firmly on the pulse, Todd Haynes’ film Dark Waters opened just before Thanksgiving. It lays bare the story of a lawyer representing a cattle farmer from Parkersburg, West Virginia; who …

Half of All Americans Have Radiation in Their Water

Posted by: Rhona Reid On February 1, 2018 12:00 pm

According to this report published in January by the Environmental Working Group (EWG), 173 million people – around half of all Americans – have been exposed to radiation in their drinking water.  That means an increase in the possibility of developing certain types of cancer and can also have a detrimental effect on fetal development.  

Radioactive elements enter our groundwater…and stay there.
The “Erin Brockovich” Chemical

By studying 50,000 water systems countrywide, the EWG found that millions of people across 50 states are drinking water that contains radioactive contaminants; including the most commonly-occurring radioactive element, radium.

In Texas – one of the worst affected states – up to 80% of homes are supplied with water containing potentially dangerous levels of

The Future for Flint’s Children

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

Is a Water Ionizer Much Better than a Water Purifying Pitcher?

Posted by: Rhona Reid On July 13, 2017 12:00 pm

There’s a lot of competition for your money when it comes to different ways of drinking clean, safe water.  Many people are unsure about how clean their regular tap water is.  Understandably, they search for an alternative.

This can’t compare to a Tyent ionizer.

Water ionizers might cost more than water pitchers, but does the performance even compare?

Well, let’s see.  A water-purifying pitcher is often better than nothing, but honestly?  It’s a little like comparing a bicycle with a Ferrari.  But why?

  1. How Clean is Your Water?

A top-of-the-range water purifier is capable of slightly improving the quality of your source water and removing some unwanted elements.  However, it’s more likely that the less sophisticated filters (that need to …

You May Ask…Why are Water Ionizers So Expensive?

Posted by: Rhona Reid On February 28, 2017 7:00 am

Ionizers are a fairly significant purchase for most people, but why are they so expensive?  I mean the difference between the price of a water pitcher filter and an ionizer is huge, right?

water ionizers
With ionizers, you really do get what you pay for.

Well yes, but that’s kind of like comparing a skateboard with a Ferrari. A water filter pitcher, at best, removes some contaminants from your water and little else.  Water ionizers do a whole lot more.  Tyent ionizers remove over 200 contaminants from your source water along with 99% of lead.

Not only that, the unit then ionizes the water as it passes over specially designed plates.  Tyent ionizers have the very best and most powerful plates on …
