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.
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 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 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:
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 …

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?
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 …
