This is the first of many articles to inform and advise on the quality of the air and water in our homes today. Why would this be of concern to you? Well in today’s world, what we thought to be our God Given right has been so affected by mankind that even Mother Nature cannot keep up and needs help. Mankind has polluted the air so much that it kills lakes, rivers and streams (acid rain) we have new terms such as pollution index reports, and sick house syndrome. The problem is in our homes, apartments, business’s and schools. Asthma amongst the young is rising to the rate that three out of every five children will have the disease before age ten. Adults too are on the rise of about 8% and these numbers represent Canada alone.
In Canada at any given time there is approximately 1200 boil orders, instances such as those in Walkerton and North Battleford are almost a daily occurrence. Words such as
E-Coli and Cryptosporidium are now part of our regular vocabulary. Common questions these days are. What’s in your water? Is bottled water any better? Chlorine can’t be good for you! Can it?
In future articles we hope to inform you on the problems facing our society and provide you with effective advise on protecting you and your family, from the adverse conditions that are the direct result of 100 years of the industrial revolution.
