EPA to regulate rocket fuel chemical in drinking water for causing the same problems as fluoride
2/4/2011 - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has identified the need to set a limit on the amount of perchlorate, a toxic chemical found in rocket fuel, that is permissible in water supplies. The agency says perchlorates negatively affects the body's ability to uptake iodine, which in turn alters...
Scientists uncover truth about fluoride and other water contaminants
1/8/2011 - There have been numerous studies highlighting the adverse effects of water fluoridation and other drinking water contaminants, but a slew of new scientific findings have sparked even more opposition to these chemicals than ever before. Most shockingly, a study has even linked fluoride to lower IQ in...
Councilman to introduce legislation to stop fluoridation of New York City water supply
1/2/2011 - The momentum to remove fluoride from America's water supplies is picking up steam, thanks to mounting evidence that the toxic chemical byproduct of the aluminum and phosphate fertilizer industries causes brain damage, thyroid problems and cancer. Councilman Peter Vallone (D-Queens) recently told those...
Herbicide Chemical in Drinking Water Could Pose Much Greater Danger to Health Than Previously Thought

Arsenic in Contaminated Water Increases Susceptibility to H1N1 Influenza
5/21/2009 - Not everyone who is exposed to an infectious disease, even the widely-feared new "swine" flu (H1N1), gets sick. And many people who do come down with the flu or another illness get over it without much trouble. While a lot of factors can be at work, from good nutrition to physical fitness, a new study...
WHY DRINK PURE DISTILLED WATER EVERY DAY!
1) Fresh, distilled water tastes great! Notice the emphasis on the word “fresh.” Fresh, distilled water tastes like water is supposed to taste and it enhances the flavor of tea, coffee and all other of your gourmet creations. Unfortunately, most people’s experience with distilled water is from the distilled water that is stored for months in low-grade plastic bottles. The purer the water the faster it will absorb bad tastes.
2) You don’t know what’s in your water. Even if you could test for all of the possible contaminants that could be in your water, which you can’t, water tests still only give you a snapshot in time. Water quality can vary from moment to moment. You don’t know what’s in your water so you should get one of our water distillers that offers the best protection against the full range of contaminants.
3) Distilled water is the cleanest water you can get. Our premium water distillers use a combination of treatment methods to consistently produce the cleanest water possible. Filters of all kinds produce variable results.
4) Distilled water is biosecure. Not only do our water distillers boil your tap water, which happens to be one of the most thorough ways of killing biological contaminants, but we separate and use only the pure steam. Distillation is recommended by the Red Cross and FEMA as one of the only proven methods of cleaning highly contaminated water during an emergency. Filters and reverse osmosis systems are not recommended during an emergency.
5) A water distiller is an excellent investment. Yes, our water distillers are more expensive than reverse osmosis systems and other filters. But our systems are rugged, proven machines that are built to last. When you invest in one of our water distillers you are making an investment that will pay for itself many times during the life of our machines.
