The EPA just announced its plan to allow gigantic increases in the allowable radioactivity in drinking water… increasing it by over 3,000 times in the case of radioactive Iodine-131… while calling it “safe” to drink even though it’s almost certain to give you cancer.
In this public EPA document, the agency says it was ordered by President Obama’s Executive Order 12656 (section 1601(2)) to “[d]evelop, for national security emergencies, guidance on acceptable emergency levels of nuclear radiation….”
In this report, the EPA warns that a nuclear “incident” may strike the United States, and if people are going to drink the radioactive water, somebody needs to decide how much radioactivity Americans will be allowed to consume.
From the EPA report:
A large scale radiation contamination incident could impact the United States, driving the need for a pre-established drinking water PAG. EPA is proposing a two-tiered intermediate phase drinking water PAG of 100 mrem projected dose in the first year for infants, children and pregnant or nursing women and 500 mrem projected dose in the first year for the general population.
So what are the solutions to all this? A high-end water filter, of course. As a real scientist running an internationally accredited laboratory (CWClabs.com), I’ve actually tested the ability of emergency water filters to remove elements with radioactive isotopes, such as cesium, strontium and uranium.
The #1 most effective filter I found for removing nearly 100% of all toxic elements is the Big Berkey water filter with the add-on arsenic and fluoride filter elements. They removed almost everything that was toxic!
Of course, if you prefer not to filter the water and just drink yourself to death with radioactive elements, the EPA will gladly tell you it’s safe while you commit radiological suicide. The government doesn’t want you around, get it?
