Copper in your Water
When i talk about toxins in the water system, i generally refer to the real metal baddies as mercury, arsenic, uranium and lead. Copper is identified here as a bad guy in excess concentration, but it is a necessary micronutrient for bio-metabolism. A lot of the stuff that comes in the water is nutritionally bad - as a chemist, i personally think that aluminum and fluorine are both entirely insidious as they are artificial creations of industry - harmful byproducts. The mechanism of all prion diseases is under debate - the medical folks have nary a clue about bio-mechanisms. It is time to cleanse our waters!
