Is our planet's water supply in danger?

Michael T. Murray, ND
Naturopathic Medicine

There is currently a great concern about our water supply. It is becoming increasingly difficult to find pure water. Most of our water supply is full of chemicals, including not only chlorine and fluoride, which are routinely added, but a wide range of toxic and organic compounds and chemicals, such as PCBs, pesticide residues, nitrates, and heavy metals such as lead, mercury, and cadmium. It is estimated that lead alone may contaminate the water of more than 40 million Americans.
