I read a disturbing article recently in The Washington Post about the agonizing death of a vibrant 20-year-old Midwestern girl, Amara Strande, who endured 20 surgeries to remove cancerous tumors throughout her body. The cause of her sickness was traced back to toxic substances dumped by a major chemical
company that leached into the ground and polluted the water table in her town.
And now a report from the US Geological Survey cites that half of the tap water in the US is contaminated with chemicals known as “forever chemicals,” technically polyfluorinated alkyl substances (PFAS).
And according to CNN, the number of people drinking contaminated water may be even higher than what the study found because the researchers weren’t able to test for all PFAS chemicals considered dangerous to human health, of which there are more than 12,000 types of PFAS according the National Institutes of
Health. However, the study looked at only 32 of these compounds. PFAS exposure is linked to problems like cancer, obesity, thyroid disease, high cholesterol, decreased fertility, liver damage and hormone suppression according to the US Environmental Protection Agency.
This smart young woman’s tragic and avoidable death hit me hard. And caused me to take action. I scoured the internet looking for ways to protect my family in the event of something like this happening in our area. I found something good that I want to share which allows you to make your own pure drinking water, extracted from the air around us. The company that got my attention is called Hendrx and their tagline, “know what you are drinking.” The specific product that caught my eye is the Hendrx XQ-90 Air-To-Water Generator. Here’s the link.
It literally makes water out of air and can generate up to 30 liters of pure, filtered, clean drinking water every day and has a 12-liter storage
capacity. Seems these days no matter where you live you could be impacted by any number of natural or man-made disasters; be it a tornado, wildfire, train derailment that dumps poisons into the ground or rivers, streams, lakes and ponds or a drought or a flood. I’ve not seen anything better than this air-to-water generator and it looks like ordering one is easy. I’m not going to take chances. I want to know what I’m drinking.
