Since I added a Chromium 6 vial to my testing kits, I have seen more and more people who are being exposed to the toxic Hexavalent Chromium. Recently the Lansing State Journal published an article about this as well. You can see the link here: http://www.lansingstatejournal.com/story/news/local/2016/09/22/erin-brockovich-chemical-found-lansing-area-water-supplies/90799360/
Here are some key points from an article written about Hexavalent Chromium 6 from the website the Natural News.
(Natural News) An Environmental Working Group review of government water analysis data reveals that 75% of drinking water in America is contaminated with cancer-causing hexavalent chromium (also known as chromium-6). In a widely publicized report, EWG warns that 200 million Americans are right now being exposed to this toxic chemical in their water.
This is on top of our own efforts at EPAwatch.org where the natural news lab tested hundreds of municipal water samples from across the country and found high levels of lead and other heavy metals in 6.7% of samples.
This doesn’t even cover the deliberate poisoning of public water systems with fluoride, a neurotoxic chemical purchased in bulk from Chinese chemical plants (or sometimes acquired as a waste product from fertilizer manufacturing factories). Fluoride is dumped into public water supplies under the quack science claim that every person in the nation is deficient in fluoride — a blatantly false and highly irresponsible claim. In reality, many children suffer from fluorosis, a dark mottling and discoloration of the teeth caused by too much exposure to toxic fluoride.
After becoming aware of all the toxic metals and chemicals in the drinking water these days, if you aren’t filtering your water with a reputable, lab-verified water filter, you’re basically participating in the chemical suicide of humanity.
Fortunately, the solution is very simple: Buy and use a reputable water filter!
At the Natural News online store there is a lab-verified Big Berkey gravity filter which also doubles as an emergency system requiring no electricity whatsoever.
The AquaTru countertop filter also removes chromium-6 and hundreds of other toxic chemicals and heavy metals.
Finally, if you want to test the heavy metals in your own water (or your supplements or even your hair!), check out this heavy metals test kit offered by the Natural News store which analyzes your sample for 20 elements, including heavy metals and various trace minerals. (The kit does not, however, quantitate chromium-6.)
Or see a naturopath or nutrition response test practitioner in your area to get on a regular detox protocol.
