There’s an invasion underway, a constant onslaught of chemical attacks that are more sinister and more life-threatening than faraway armies with tanks. This chemical invasion is occurring on many levels today, and it impacts the cells of many unsuspecting people. The invasion is invisible to the eyes, but under the microscope it is ever so real.
This vicious invasion is taking place silently in the very water that the population drinks. The people who are impacted are clueless, oblivious and defenseless. They have no idea what’s going on, as fracking chemicals and displaced heavy metals invade their bodies, tainting their lifeblood and minds.
With cancers spreading, sleep problems mounting and mental health deteriorating, it’s very important for the people to know what kind of enemy they are up against. In a world where personal property and human health are no longer respected or protected, it’s important for people to know how to filter their water effectively for self defense.
Oil and gas industry a major contributor to the mental health problems of the day
The oil and gas industry is a major contributor to this vicious invasion. The toxic slew of chemicals left over after hydraulic fracturing are often taken to public water treatment plants that are incapable of filtering out the contaminants. For years, publicly owned treatment plants have received large amounts of fracking waste water that they cannot effectively treat. As a consequence, the waterways are filled with toxic byproducts, as the public is silently poisoned, every cell in their bodies under attack.
During the recent gas boom in Pennsylvania, fracking waste water was pumped right into the Monongahela River. In 2008 and 2009, towns along the river were instructed to use bottled water, since the water outside their homes and near municipal sewage plants was being poisoned.
In 2011, during the natural gas boom, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett called on oil drilling companies to stop sending fracking wastewater to public treatment facilities. At that time, the oil-drilling technique of hydraulic fracturing came under advanced scrutiny. Fracking wastewater contains a toxic slew of total dissolved solids, organic and inorganic chemicals, and technologically enhanced naturally occurring radioactive material (TENORM), that is very difficult to properly dispose of and filter out. Some of these compounding chemicals poison the water and land near drilling sites. Large amounts are taken to public treatment plants that are not even capable of filtering the waste water. When treatment plants fail to handle fracking waste, the toxic slew is discharged straight into the waterways. The wastewater can even inhibit the treatment plant from filtering out regular waste. This causes harmful byproducts to form in the water.
EPA admits new infrastructure is needed to process fracking wastewater
The Environmental Protection Agency is just now coming up with a rule to stop oil drilling operations from disposing of their fracking waste at publicly owned treatment works.
The EPA’s new rule intends to defend the public, but without the proper infrastructure to filter out the contaminants, fracking will only continue, the damage unrestrained. What will oil drilling companies do with their fracking waste water, as innovation for water treatment infrastructure is stifled? As the energy sector rushes to dispose of their toxic waste water, and with no incentive to innovate, tons of toxic waste water are going to end up in the environment – irrespective of the EPA’s good intentions. The EPA admits on its website: “This potentially harmful wastewater creates a need for appropriate wastewater management infrastructure and practices.”
Clean Water Action, an environmental group that supports the EPA’s new rule, said that oil drilling companies are finding new ways to dump their wastewater, sealing it in underground injection wells, running it through ineffective industrial treatment plants and “recycling” it.
Self defense against heavy metals and chemicals a top priority
If we don’t start taking at-home water filtration seriously, our ability to function on a day-to-day basis will continue to deteriorate. There’s already a monstrous chemical invasion taking place through our pesticide and herbicide intense agricultural systems. The more we accept this chemical inundation, the more we will decline – both physically and mentally.
Some of the most insane acts of violence that occur in our culture begin with a poisoned brain. How might toxic heavy metals and chemicals from fracking waste water, herbicides, pesticides, along with psychotropic drugs, contribute to mass shootings? As these chemicals disrupt the endocrine system of the human body, cause gut dysbiosis and destroy the nervous system, people’s behavior and thinking processes are altered in ways society cannot yet understand or fully comprehend.
With the above in mind, if you are concerned about what’s lurking in your town’s water, send in a sample to EPAWatch.org, and they’ll test it for your for free.
