PUR2o Posse speaks at a Green Living Seminar in Westchester County, NY.
More and more people are becoming aware of just how IMPORTANT “safe & healthy” water really is!
Several of us at PUR2o – Antonio and I – were speakers at at green living seminar in Westchester County and the word IS getting around!
Julia Kushnir is a real estate agent in Nyack, NY and now understands why municipal, well and even bottled water is definitely NOT all it’s “supposed” to be!
Here’s her blog post this month:
WE NEVER KNOW THE WORTH OF WATER TILL THE WELL IS DRY
I recently attended the green living and housing seminar and one of the topics was clean water. I knew that our tap water might not be the healthiest but I had no idea that most of tap and bottled water is acidic!
Alkalinity is one hot topic today. But what exactly is alkalinity and why is it so important for your health?
The more alkaline you are, the healthier you feel. In fact when you are in an alkaline state, your healthy normal cells will thrive and disease will not. Drinking alkaline water will go a long way toward maintaining good health. Studies show alkaline and anti-oxidant water has been proven effective in preventing and treating cancer, diabetes, aging, auto immune and other diseases. Most diseases, except those caused by pathogenic bacteria, are linked to pollution of the blood.
Diseases live and thrive in acidic environments. Alkaline and anti-oxidant water is believed to activate those enzymes that remove harmful free radical oxygen in the body. Alkaline and anti-oxidant water is not “medicine” but is an effective deterrent against certain diseases. It boosts our immunity and has natural healing properties. When comparing two healthy adults, studies show significant differences between the one drinking tap water and the one drinking alkaline and anti-oxidant water.
All municipal water contains chlorine. Worse yet, it contains chlorine by-products which are even MORE harmful to our health. The list of pollutants, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, etc. in our drinking water systems, is seemingly endless. There is also no longer any such thing as “pure” well water. Dangerous man-made chemicals and pollutants as well as natural contaminants such as arsenic and radon make their way into the ground water and therefore into wells and then to our tap. Bottled water is not much better. In fact, most bottled water is acidic. Acidic water is aggressive and corrosive. It will leach essential minerals out of your body. It will also break down plastic bottles causing BPA (bisphenol-A, a known carcinogen) to contaminate the water. Most importantly, diseases and viruses live and thrive in acidic environments.
There is safe water, then there’s safe and healthy water. PUR2o provides both! There is nothing else like it! More information and details at http://pur2o.com.
New Jersey’s public water systems are in decay and our public health is at risk. The infrastructure falls $1.8 billion short of what we need to keep up with the water and sewer systems in New Jersey. The lack of public investment in our infrastructure threatens the safety of your drinking water now and the accessibility of drinking water for future generations. If we do not have public control, companies could sell off our water to the fracking industry and to other private interests, making it expensive for people to live and access clean drinking water.
New Jersey needs to create a dedicated funding source that will provide funding to keep the water infrastructure strong and durable. The fund will provide access to clean water and hopefully provide jobs. Our communities and townships lack local funding needed to invest in improving our decaying water infrastructure. Water needs to remain under public control so we can survive.

Fracking is happening in New Jersey and Pur2o is here to clean up the mess! Pilgrim Pipeline proposes to pump 400,000 gallons of Bakken crude per day through several dozen municipalities on its route from Albany, NY to Linden, NJ. Imagine what risks a major oil pipeline would bring to our small communities in NJ! Residents will end up seeing their water sources contaminated with levels of benzene, which is cancer causing.
Thousands of people in New Jersey have taken action by writing letters and attending public meetings. Educate those around you so we can stop fracking in NJ and our water can stop being compromised. Make a stand with Pur2o and move away from extreme energy and work towards the healthy! #saynotofracking #pur2o #cleanwater #safeandhealthywater
Clean water is a necessity! The Clean Water Act has protected our water from fecal matter, pesticides, and industrial chemicals, but many years ago industrial polluters pushed to remove safeguards from key water sources. This makes it easier for mining companies and factory farms to dump waste into water sources. Now, industrial polluters have managed to exploit a legal outlet in the Clean Water Act that lets these companies get away with polluting lakes, wetlands, and streams. Corporate polluters shouldn’t have the right to threaten drinking water sources to harm the environment or millions of people.#pur2o #cleanwateract #safeandhealthywater #helptheenvironment
The lack of investment in our drinking water systems is causing threats to public health and the environment which includes beach closing, water quality violations, boil water alerts, and breaking water pipes. Private companies are profiting off of deteriorating water systems, buying them up and then cutting services and raising rates. Reductions in state and federal funding for drinking water have been happening since the 1980’s and we are now seeing the results of those decisions. Legislators need to create a Clean Water Trust Fund, so that our clean water is not competing with other funding priorities and there is a dedicated funding source. There was a $7 billion shortfall needed to repair water infrastructure last year in New Jersey alone. This fund will help the access to clean, affordable drinking water and reverse years of neglect that has become of our public water system. Become aware because we need to do something!

Have you ever found yourself reaching for the faucet and filling your glass of tap water because it was convenient and easy? How could harm be done when drinking plain old tap water? Well, a lot have harm actually.
Tap water contains pollutants that increase your risk of serious health problems. Here are just some of the contaminants:
1. Arsenic– This poisonous element is a carcinogenic, which has been linked to several types of cancer. The cancer risk was so high that the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) lowered the maximum level of arsenic permitted in tap water from 50 ug/L to 10 ug/L.
2. Aluminum– Aluminum not only increases your risk for Alzheimer’s disease but other health problems as well including;
-learning disabilities in children
3. Fluoride– Remember when you used to go to the dentist as a kid and you were able to choose between the strawberry or bubble gum fluoride flavor to prevent cavities? Fluoride preventing cavities is an absolute myth. Fluoride is a well known toxin that leads to an increased risk of cavities and can actually weaken the immune system.
4. Prescription and OTC Drugs– Water that drains through landfills eventually ends up in rivers which means drugs thrown away down the toilet or in the trash can end up mixing and harming your body. Millions of people have drug allergies who may not have realized the strange symptoms they have been experiencing are from ingesting small doses of the combined drugs.
5. Disinfection Byproducts (DBPs)– These byproducts are the result of disinfecting water with chlorine, although ingesting chlorine is extremely dangerous, ingesting DBPs are ten times worse. DBPs are not only a carcinogenic but also have been linked to problems with the liver, kidney, and nervous system.

On Wednesday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Commissioner Joseph Martens, and Department of Health Commissioner (DOH) Howard Zucker announced that New York would prohibit high-volume horizontal fracturing of shale. This statement was released after announcing the results of a state-commissioned scientific review of the health impacts of oil and gas.
What is fracking?
The process of drilling down into the earth before a high-pressure water mixture is directed at the rock to release the gas inside. Water, sand and chemicals are injected into the rock at high pressure which allows the gas to flow out to the head of the well.
Governor Cuomo stated, “If you wouldn’t want your children to live near fracking, no one’s children should have to.”
In 2015 the DEC will include findings in its own document with a clear recommendation to prohibit fracking in the state.
Jill Wiener of Catskill Citizens for Safe Energy and Advisory Council Member for Stop the Frack Attack also stated, “New Yorkers are so fortunate to have decision makers who have listened to the public and the emerging science, and are not willing to sacrifice communities, public health, and local and sustainable economies.”
