Atherosclerosis is a fancy medical word for a big problem that plagues most of us – the cause of heart attacks.
Atherosclerosis occurs when our arteries become narrowed and hardened because of a buildup of plaque around our artery walls. Plaque is made from a combination of cholesterol, fatty substances, cellular waste products, calcium and fibrin (a clotting material in the blood).
In a plumbing analogy, it is like having sludge forming on the inside of our home’s pipes. And over time, these clogged pipes block water from flowing.
Doctors warn us that these common factors contribute to poor heart health:
- Eating fatty foods…
- Elevated levels of cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood…
- High-blood pressure…
- Cigarette smoking
But the reality is the way we get Atherosclerosis is vastly different than we are told. And the truth is being kept from us.
The #1 reason we suffer Atherosclerosis is the chlorination of our water and drinking supply!
And yes, the medical industry knows about this. But they virtually hide it from us.
In this US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health abstract (PDF), our government “ponders” the ill effects of chlorinated water on our heart health. Of course, the results of the study have not been released – it has been more than 32 years.
Why are we getting lied to about the real reason for Atherosclerosis? My guess is the money. Here in the good ol’ USA, almost a half a trillion dollars were spent “fighting Atherosclerosis” back in 2010. I suspect the costs are higher these days.
Statins are being pushed big time. And the following 7 statin drug companies spend billions convincing us our diet and lack of exercise is responsible for bad heart health:
Lovastatin (Altoprev, Mevacor),
Rosuvastatin calcium (Crestor)
These 2 “Fibrates” companies rake in tons of cash to fight this “problem”, too:
- emfibrozil (Lopid)
- Fenofibrate (Antara, Fenoglide, Lipofen, Lofibra, Tricor, Triglide, Trilipix)
I could go on and on.
But the truth is chlorinated water IMMEDIATELY creates arterial plaque. We know this is true. We can run a quick experiment on our own…
According to Joseph G. Hattersley, when we run any chlorinated water through a hose and into a pale of cow’s milk, it turns into tenacious, yellowish deposits. Yet, if we use unchlorinated water and do the same, this does not happen.
Highly-reactive chlorine is one of the industrial waste products disposed of into our water system. (Sound familiar? Flouride is also a highly-reactive waste product dumped into our water supply, too)…
So how can we confirm the correlation (and possible causation) of chlorine and Atherosclerosis. It is simple. We simply look at Atherosclerosis rates in geographies with and without chlorinated water. I did. And the results clearly reveal chlorinated water is killing us fast.
According to Hattersley, “The residents of the small town of Roseto, Pennsylvania, had no heart attacks despite a diet rich in saturated animal fats and milk – until they moved away from Roseto’s mountain spring water and drank chlorinated water. After that, consuming the same diet, they had heart attacks.”
Of course, most of us have no choice to use a chlorinated water supply…
But the good news is we can quickly and easily neutralize the harmful effects of chlorine.
When it comes to drinking water, I haul in spring water each week. Total cost to my family is less than $10.
The big problem with chlorinated water is showering. Our skin is our body’s biggest organ. It is like a big ol’ sponge. It sucks in MUCH more liquid than we could ever drink. We absorb (and inhale) more chlorine in a 10-minute shower than by drinking eight glasses of the same water.
The good news is Vitamin C neutralizes the harmful effects of chlorinated water fast. And after many tests (and spending many hundreds of my own dollars), I found this inline Vitamin C shower filter works the best. It installs on any shower head in just a few moments.
Remarkably, the benefits were clear after we took our first shower. First, we no longer detect the strong smell of chlorine. Even better, our hair felt softer. And the best part is I no longer get dandruff or an itchy scalp.
Warning: there is one minor downside. The filter needs to be replaced every 3 to 4 weeks or so. Each filter is $5.
