Weekly Health Tip

  • Water and Cancer

    February 17, 2019

    I took a class once from an optometrist who talked about the difference in people with near-sighted and far-sighted issues. They learned in WWII that far-sighted people do not do well in a submarine. Whereas near-sighted people, when stressed, will hunker down and work. Far-sighted people need to take a broad look, like from an airplane.

    And so it is with health. Sometimes we need to step back and take a bigger look at what we are doing. There is no use worrying about taking the right supplements when you are drinking water that is not purified. I like to give you hard evidence because it isn’t just my opinion.

    Read this article about how chlorine is associated with cancer and that almost all municipalities use chlorine in their water. For good health, you must filter your water. It is a first step toward health.

    Personally, I like to swim but find it impossible as the chlorine is on my skin for the rest of the day. Just walking into the pool area, the chlorine smell makes me feel I’m being drugged.
