Are You Drinking Prescription Drugs in Your Tap Water?
“There’s no doubt about it, pharmaceuticals ARE being detected in the environment and there is genuine concern that these compounds – in the small concentrations that they’re at – could be causing impacts to human health or to aquatic organisms.”

“4,617 PEOPLE IN THE U.S. ARE DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER EACH AND EVERY DAY. 1,600 DIE. YES – That’s EVERY DAY – AND THAT’S JUST IN THE U.S.!” —National Cancer Institute – March 2017
So, if this scares you – it probably should!
“However – whether you’re trying to avoid cancer or beat it if you’ve got it, there is one very powerful antidote to the fear, and to the disease itself: KNOWLEDGE.”

Do YOU find yourself questioning the purity and safety of the water you, your children & grandchildren are bathing in, cooking with & drinking? You’re Not Alone!
Each and Every Day more people share in these growing concerns!
This is the cover of Time Magazine from way back in September of 1980!
Since 1979 I have been a passionate advocate about the importance of:
• Purified ‘SAFE’ Water
That’s when I first got serious about teaching people how many chemicals were in their water – and what I feared was coming!
I also began showing people what equipment they could purchase to have purer, safer water in their homes.
There is a lot of both intentional and unintentional misinformation out there about what’s in our water and about water filtration & purification.
So – what can you do?
KNOWLEDGE IS THE KEY
A slick 30 second TV spot or a little magazine ad cannot position you to make informed decisions!
YOU DESERVE BETTER!!!
My goal here is to help you gain Honest, Objective KNOWLEDGE that if applied, may help you save yourself, your children, grandchildren and others you love and care about from avoidable harm … or worse. It will be worth investing your time to read all the information contained here . . .
When you’re finished, you will know more of the truth about the hazards of today’s water than the vast majority of the public (including the media) – as well as most salespeople who are intentionally or unintentionally selling inadequate water purification solutions to trusting, unsuspecting consumers.
You will be armed with the knowledge to make a more informed decision for your health, and that of your family!
FIRST – LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THE PROBLEM:
When my wife Lisa and I were children there were chemicals in use and yes, there was some pollution, but it was a small fraction of what we now live with. The environment during the early developmental years of our generation could almost be called organic by comparison to today’s world. But sadly, even with a pretty clean start, the health of millions of baby boomers now worsens steadily.
Children today, and those to be born in the future are entering a highly toxic world at ‘the very beginning of their lives’. It frightens and saddens us to think about what lies ahead for those who came after us … and those beginning life now!
By the way: Pretty much everything you are about to read applies to our pets also.
So this massive chemical presence is not just impacting us and the people we love … it’s also damaging or destroying the health and longevity of the pets we love!
And it starts in the womb with Exposure to over 250 Toxic Chemicals Before Birth!
“While ALL Americans carry many foreign chemicals in their bodies, women often have higher levels of many toxins than men, U.S. researchers say.”

So let’s look at women & children first – then we’ll look at why this issue is every bit as important to men . . .
WOMEN & CHILDREN
Remember: ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING an expectant mother takes into her body can potentially get passed along to her developing child, and scientific evidence strongly suggests exposure to chemicals is contributing to cancer, reproductive abnormalities, early puberty and a host of other endocrine, neurological and metabolic problems – that can last a lifetime. (See Full Article Here)
Our waterways are constantly being polluted by agricultural & industrial waste and by-products, pharmaceutical drugs (such as birth control pills and other hormone therapies), pesticides and commercial cleaning products. Heavy metals are the most common of the reproductive toxins reaching our water supply through industrial waste, jet fuel exhaust residue and a wide variety of other sources.
As an expectant mom or someone with small children, what can you do to help minimize the risks?
✓ Avoid drinking unfiltered/unpurified tap water
EXAMPLE: Maternal Fluoride Exposure During Pregnancy Correlates to Lower IQ in Children. (as does even trace amounts of lead) . . . and it just keeps on devouring the IQ. Fluoride is FORCED upon 2/3 of us by State & Local Gov’t.
- Fluoride is an endocrine-disrupting chemical linked to thyroid disease, impaired memory, attention-deficit hyperactive disorder, and lowered IQ in children.
- A new, long-term study sponsored by the U.S. National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences found a correlation between fluoride exposure in utero and subsequent reductions in cognitive function.
- Each 0.5 mg/L increase in fluoride over 0.8 mg/L in the mother’s urine was associated with a 2.5 point reduction in IQ and a 3.15 point reduction in general cognitive index scores in the child. IE: Impaired fetal brain development.
- Brain damage, especially when coupled with iodine deficiency or excessive levels of aluminum.
- Impaired ability to learn and remember.
- Neurobehavioral deficits such as impaired visual-spatial organization.
- Many children now exceed recommended daily fluoride intake from toothpaste alone.
- 97% of Western Europe has rejected water fluoridation.

Another study by The Environmental Working Group found that blood samples from newborns contained an average of 287 toxins, including mercury, fire retardants, pesticides, and Teflon chemicals.
Of the 287 chemicals EWG detected in umbilical cord blood, it’s known that:
- 180 cause cancer in humans or animals
- 217 are toxic to your brain and nervous system
- 208 cause birth defects or abnormal development in animal tests
CHEMICALS / TOXINS tend to accumulate in our bodies over time. WE ARE ALL AT RISK, but the degree of risk is not equal. Here are some possible ‘DEGREE’ categories of risk for you to consider. Bear in mind that people vary considerably in their susceptibility to various chemicals & toxins. Some are highly susceptible and/or allergic. Over time, others succumb and begin to manifest reaction symptoms.
- Highest Risk
- The Developing Fetus has very poorly developed detox and elimination defenses.
- Very High Risk
- Very Young children
- People with serious health challenges
- High Risk
- Grade School age
- Adults over 50 and
- Especially Seniors past 60
- Ongoing & Accumulating Risk
- Healthy Appearing Teens
- Young Adults
- Healthy Appearing Adults
- Low Risk – DOESN’T EXIST!!!
NO ONE is immune to the accumulating toxic effects of environmental chemical toxins!
NOW LET’S TALK ABOUT MEN
HERE are a few excerpts from an article by Dr. Mercola, highlighting just ONE Shocking study to hopefully firm up your undivided attention about how VERY WIDESPREAD and DANGEROUS Toxic Chemicals are to us . . .
“Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals Wreak Havoc on Men’s Reproductive Ability”
So, how serious is this?
“Male Infertility Rates Warn of Impending Human Extinction”
According to the largest meta-analysis of its kind, sperm counts around the world declined by more than 50 percent, to 47 million sperm per mL, between 1973 and 2013, and continue to dwindle.
The most significant declines were found in samples from men in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, where many had sperm concentrations below 40 million/mL — a level at which a man will have trouble fertilizing an egg.
This could mean you, your children or grandchildren!
Endocrine disrupting chemicals have undoubtedly contributed to the dramatic decline in reproductive health among men. Excessive microwave radiation from wireless technologies, obesity and inactivity also play a significant role.
● ● ●
A Second Paper, published in PLOS Genetics, suggests endocrine disrupting chemicals are to blame for the dramatic decline in reproductive health among men. It found that exposing male mice to ethinyl estradiol, a synthetic sex hormone found in birth control pills, causes developmental problems in the reproductive tract, thereby lowering sperm counts.
While men do not use birth control pills, they’re exposed to them nonetheless through ‘contaminated water’ and other sources. Men are also exposed to a number of other endocrine disrupting chemicals in their day-to-day lives, thanks to the pernicious use of endocrine disrupting chemicals in plastics, personal care products, herbicides such as GLYPHOSATE13 from Monsanto’s Roundup (which is a very common contaminant in non-organic foods) and more.
I selected the above excerpts from this major study to help illustrate the EXTREME IMPORTANCE of taking the HUGE issue of pure, safe water seriously. Frankly, there are dozens of these sobering studies. I trust you already knew, or suspected how bad the water is or you probably wouldn’t be reading this eBook, so I will move on.
● ● ●
• The US permits more than 84,000 chemicals to be used in household products, cosmetics, food & food packaging. LESS THAN 15% HAVE EVER BEEN TESTED FOR SAFETY! According to the US Government Accountability Office, 85% of new chemical applications include no testing whatsoever.
• What’s worse, the chemical industry has a long history of lying about
the safety of their wares, and its powerful lobby has allowed the industry to saturate the world in extremely dangerous chemicals with little or no oversight.
• Our drinking water supplies are being destroyed by Agricultural & Industrial toxins, Pharmaceutical Drugs & Antibiotics, Household chemicals and many other toxins. (Source: The Environmental Working Group).
• Hundreds of Millions of Doses of Antibiotics, Anticonvulsants, Mood Stabilizers, Sex Hormones and every other pill & legal or illegal drug imaginable enter our water supply – EVERY SINGLE DAY – either after they are swallowed and partially processed through a human body, or are flushed in staggering numbers down the toilets of America.
• THERE IS NO NEW WATER!!! I’m still a bit shocked at how many people don’t realize that we are all consuming processed sewage water, and have been for a very long time!
• Yes, nature has ways to clean water, but population growth – along with massive agricultural and industrial pollution has completely overwhelmed natural processes. Mankind and industry have managed to POLLUTE our LAKES, RIVERS, OCEANS, ATMOSPHERE … our entire PLANET. The vast majority of this has happened in MY LIFETIME. The trajectory is frightening, don’t you agree?
• Only about 100 contaminants are covered by the Safe Drinking Water Act. Many water departments cannot even meet those requirements, and just pay the fines each year.
PLEASE MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT THIS: Protecting and safeguarding our health is OUR OWN RESPONSIBILITY and anyone who believes otherwise is naïve, and/or not paying attention to THE OVERWHELMING EVIDENCE ALL AROUND US. Over 40% of Americans now get Cancer – and that number is expected to grow another 50% in the next 10 years. A wide variety of other Devastating Diseases are also at record levels … and accelerating!
A VERY IMORTANT QUESTION: Do you honestly believe that a high volume, high speed water treatment facility, no matter how conscientiously operated can POSSIBLY REMOVE all those TOXIC CHEMICALS?

Yes, organic, non-GMO nutrition, non-toxic household cleaners, makeup and exercise are all important elements to a healthy lifestyle. Lisa and I are steadfast in personally living and promoting that lifestyle, but . . .
PURE, SAFE WATER is the ESSENTIAL FOUNDATION
Upon which to build, or rebuild a life of HEALTH, rather than disease!
Disease incubates in the body . . . unless interrupted by a strong, healthy immune system.
The incubation period for colds & flu can be days or weeks. Major serious diseases can take months, years and often – decades! Research proved long ago that toxic chemicals and heavy metals accumulate in the body and HELP create an ideal environment for the incubating disease – even feeding it. When that incubation period manifests itself and ‘Hatches’ so to speak, we’re not talking about a cute little song bird …
it’s a dragon that wants to consume you!
I TRUST YOU DO NOT WANT TO CONTRIBUTE TO THAT PROCESS!
At this point you may be thinking, what about nutrition? BE ASSURED, the very nature of this information should demonstrate to you that I don’t believe in simplistic answers. The public has been deluded into a ridiculous belief in ‘Silver Bullet’ magic pills or procedures that will make up for a lifetime of processed junk food and a wide array of other self-destructive lifestyle choices. This information is for those of you who have been, or are now choosing the pathway of health.
SO YES, my wife and I are big believers in real food nutrition and healthy exercise. We are conscientious about keeping chemicals out of our lives to the greatest degree reasonably possible. It’s a matter of educating yourself, awareness, and choices.
Your body is about 2/3 water:
- Some of your vital organs are over 80% water.
- Infants and children are up to 90% water.
- Blood is 94% water.
A VERY IMPORTANT FACT: You absorb more toxic chemicals in one, 10-minute shower than if you drink the same tap water all day! Children are at far higher risk. Do you really want to be absorbing these dangerous chemicals?
LEAD – is nearly EVERYWHERE in the nations water supply, and it’s dangerous for everyone – even worse for the unborn, infants & young children. Governments and water treatment sources typically use 15 parts per billion (or higher) as supposedly safe levels. Only 2.0 parts per BILLION lowers IQ in children!
Most experts agree – There is NO SAFE AMOUNT OF LEAD IN YOUR WATER!
NOTE: Topical fluoride treatment of teeth by a dentist is TOTALLY DIFFERENT than drinking it.
CHROMIUM 6 – is the culprit chemical in the Julia Roberts film about Erin Brockovich. The supposed safe level of Chromium 6 in your water is .02 parts per billion. It is found throughout the US in varying amounts, most commonly well above or WAY ABOVE .02 ppb.
Arizona Republic – reported that in Maricopa County, AZ Chromium 6 is at 7.30 ppb – that’s 365 TIMES the supposed safe level!
FLUORIDE – Fluoridated water is FORCED upon hundreds of millions of us (two thirds of all Americans) by their Municipal and State governments.
There is NO evidence it helps us, but LOTS of evidence it is highly toxic and hurts us all!
Watch The Video: The Toxic Truth About Fluoride by Dr. Mercola
TAKING CORRECTIVE ACTION
In my view, and that of a great many renowned experts, a Comprehensive, ‘Layered Technology’ System is required to produce FAR PURER, SAFER WATER than comes from your tap or shower head.
Our Commitment: We are continuously studying new water purification technologies that can help make water safer for people around the world … in all situations.
AS I’VE SAID BEFORE, WATER IS LIFE!!!
Pure, Safe Water IS the very FOUNDATION of health. No amount of wonderful organic, non-GMO food and key supplements can cancel out the harmful effects of toxins entering and accumulating in your body every day from the very water you drink, cook with and bathe in!
For example: Growing numbers of people now do some type of cleanse once or twice a year. Good idea – so do we! HOWEVER, one may ask, how can a cleanse POSSIBLY be optimally effective if it’s done in concert with chemically laden toxic water?
We believe that when it comes to pure water and safeguarding your current and future health EVERY DAY MATTERS, so apathy and/or procrastination is NOT a formula for success. It’s your choice of course, but be assured, we will all live the consequences of our lifestyle choices and decisions!
Back when I was an infant and child growing up:
- The food was still largely organic.
- Most of the rivers, lakes & oceans were reasonably clean & safe.
- You could go fishing most anyplace, and actually eat the fish without risk of poisoning yourself.
THOSE DAYS ARE OVER!
- Back then, the massive onslaught of chemicals that overwhelm our lives today was still in its infancy!
- You, your children and your grandchildren are now living in a HIGHLY TOXIC WORLD.
- There is evidence all around us that this will continue to get worse . . . much worse!
We all live the consequences of our lifestyle decisions!
PLEASE don’t play loose with the quality of what you put into your body!
Keep In Mind:
Your children & grandchildren already born or yet to be born will be profoundly affected by your choices as a parent
THEY depend upon YOUR decision-making priorities!
With this information, I invite you to reexamine your priorities and TAKE DECISIVE ACTION to bring pure, safe water into your home & life.
As of this writing, Rock Duffy and his lovely wife, Lisa are collectively 136 years young. We take no medications whatsoever, everything works fine and we are extremely healthy and vibrant.
Are we just lucky? Perhaps, but unlikely. The odds are FAR higher that a solid foundation of Filtered, Conditioned, Purified, Safe Water, combined with high quality nutrition and exercise has helped deliver us safely to this point in our lives.
