Remember "Flint Michigan" in the news?
"The Flint water crisis began in 2014 when the Flint River became the drinking water source for the city of Flint, Michigan. Due to insufficient water treatment, over 100,000 residents were potentially exposed to high levels of lead in the drinking water. A federal state of emergency was declared in January 2016 and Flint residents were instructed to use only bottled or filtered water for drinking, cooking, cleaning, and bathing." - Wikipedia
"Government officials knew about it..."
“Flint Michigan” Lead Poisoning
As of early 2017, the water quality had returned to acceptable levels. However residents were instructed to continue to use bottled or filtered water until all the lead pipes have been replaced.
This is not expected to be completed no sooner than 2020. Officials failed to apply corrosion inhibitors to the water.
As a result there was a series of problems that culminated with lead contamination, creating a serious public health danger.
The Flint River water that was treated improperly caused lead from aging pipes to leach into the water supply, leading to extremely elevated levels of the heavy metal neurotoxin.
“They knew the water was deadly”
In Flint, between 6,000 and 12,000 children have been exposed to drinking water with high levels of lead and they may experience a range of serious health problems.
Public water treatment systems are legally required to use control measures to make water less acidic.
20+ lawsuits have been filed against government officials in the Flint Michigan water crisis.
Water Perfect: Protect your family.
Sorry, but you can get in a lot of trouble by trusting your “elected officials” to keep your city water clean. Teach your children at a young age to give their body the best nutrients, healthy habits, plenty of exercise, a balanced diet, and clean alkaline water.
You use water in everything…
It’s true! It’s part of our human nature that we need a steady supply of water each and every day. We use water when cooking, making coffee, a cup of tea, in our favorite recipes, and especially when exercising.
Effects of Lead: Expecting Mothers
Lead can accumulate in our bodies over time, where it is stored in bones along with calcium. During pregnancy, lead is released from bones as maternal calcium and is used to help form the bones of the fetus.
This is particularly true if a woman does not have enough dietary calcium. Lead can also cross the placental barrier exposing the fetus to lead. This can result in serious effects to the mother and her developing fetus, including:
- Reduced growth of the fetus
- Premature birth
Negative Effects of Lead in Your Drinking Water
Young children, infants, and fetuses are particularly vulnerable to lead because the physical and behavioral effects of lead occur at lower exposure levels in children than in adults.
A dose of lead that would have little effect on an adult can have a significant effect on a child.
In children, low levels of exposure have been linked to damage to the central and peripheral nervous system, learning disabilities, shorter stature, impaired hearing, and impaired formation and function of blood cells.
Effects of Lead on Children
EPA estimates that drinking water can make up 20 percent or more of a person’s total exposure to lead. Infants who consume mostly mixed formula can receive 40 percent to 60 percent of their exposure to lead from drinking water. Even low levels of lead in the blood of children can result in:
- Behavior and learning problems
- Lower IQ and hyperactivity
- Slowed growth / Hearing problems / Anemia
In rare cases, ingestion of lead can cause seizures, coma and even death.
