Maybe it’s just me but it seems everywhere I go, someone has got a cell phone pressed up against their ear. If the phone is not being actively used, whatever musical ring tone has been chosen has the person fumbling in their pocket or purse for their device. Cell phones are lightweight, trendy, convenient, and fun to use. In fact if I didn’t know better, I suppose I would be like everyone else, a cell phone junkie.
Most cell phone users have become so ‘addicted’ to their phones that they even keep them on their night stands or pillow when they go to sleep – that’s really not a good idea.
Why? Because serious mental and physical problems have been linked with cell phone usage. The symptoms and conditions resulting from electromagnetic sensitivity accumulate over time, becoming more severe as exposure to the cell phone’s radiation continues.
So I decided to compile the most exhaustive list I could, of symptoms and conditions which can result from cell phone use. Feel free, if you want to print this out to show to any doubting thomas in your entourage. And when those doubting thomases go “oh yeah, show me some proof”. Well now you can because below that I have show the proof – 15 scientific studies which support these claims.
Comprehensive List Of Symptoms And Conditions Resulting From Electrical Sensitivity
! Auditory Problems:
Ringing in the ears, tinnitus, can be one of the first signs that your cell phone is beginning to affect you. An unexpected earache, along with difficulty in keeping your balance are yet other indications that you are experiencing electromagnetic sensitivity.
! Cognitive Difficulties:
As your head is directly on the ‘receiving end’ of a cell phone’s electromagnetic waves, the ability to remain mentally sharp and aware may be affected. Of course, as a lack of concentration and confusion result, it will be more difficult for you to associate the seemingly innocent cell phone with your problems. Memory will also suffer and learning new tasks will seem to take forever, due in part to an inability to concentrate.
! Neurological Effects:
Neurological problems can mask themselves as other ailments, and linking them to your cell phone might be difficult. Suddenly developing dizziness and nausea without any discernable cause, as well as insomnia, might be ways that electromagnetic exposure is affecting you. If you seem to develop the flu when it is not flu season, this might also be a clue that your nervous system is starting to suffer.
! Respiratory Problems:
It can sometimes be hard to distinguish between just getting a cold or flu, and when these symptoms arise from electromagnetic radiation from your cell phone. However, if coughing and throat problems persist, as well as sinusitis, or if you develop asthma out of the blue, your cell phone might be the reason.
! Cardiovascular Problems:
No one needs to be told how serious problems with the heart can be. You may be suffering from electromagnetic hypersensitivity if you begin to notice that your heart rate has altered suddenly, or if you begin to experience chest pains. Shortness of breath and fluctuating blood pressure might also be signs that your body is reacting adversely to cell phone use.
! Ophthalmologic Symptoms:
While many eye problems can come about from daily work, any that manifest themselves in a short period of time, when you had no difficulties before, might be traced to your cell phone. Gritty and smarting eyes, changed vision, and the development of ‘tics’ in the eyelid could will be the result of electromagnetic exposure.
! Emotional Problems:
Quite often, physical problems are often accompanied by emotional ones. A change in your outlook, such as depression, anxiety, anger, and mood swings, could be because of radiation from your cell phone. Sudden crying jags and the feeling that you are losing control are unpleasant, and could be caused by the electromagnetic radiation entering your brain when you talk on your phone.
! Musculoskeletal Difficulties:
We tend to take the ability to move freely for granted, so when anything occurs that causes an impairment to this, we notice it quickly. Weakness and spasms in the muscles, as well as pain in the joints all affect our movement. Electromagnetic sensitivity can also result in cramps in the legs or feet, and tremors in the extremities.
! Dermatological Problems:
Problems with the skin might be one of the last things we might associate with electromagnetic sensitivity or hypersensitivity, but it is quite true that this can cause many skin conditions. The onset of severe acne, irritation, or rashes could be the result of cell phone use. If your face swells or flushes, you should consider cutting back on using your phone.
! Genito-urinary Symptoms:
Any upsets in the genito-urinary tract will make themselves known quickly and uncomfortably. You may find yourself running to the bathroom with some urgency, which can be a real inconvenience at work or while traveling. A change for the worse in your sweat will signal a problem not only to you, but to others near you. Sensitivity to electromagnetic radiation can be the root of these problems.
! Gastrointestinal Problems:
Associated with the symptoms mentioned directly above, electromagnetic sensitivity can also cause you to change your food preferences, as well as cause a change in your appetite. Certain foods that you have previously enjoyed may now upset your stomach or cause allergic reactions. The embarrassing development of flatulence could also be tied to the use of your cell phone.
Electromagnetic sensitivity can cause problems with how your body reacts to the environment. Allergies might develop, and you can become sensitive to light, chemicals, smells, or noise. If these conditions arise after you have begun using a cell phone, the phone itself may be the reason.
! Other Physiological Problems:
Besides symptoms that can be associated with a specific part of the body, there are other problems that can arise in a more haphazard manner. Brittle nails and a scalp that itches, along with unexpected hair loss can mean that your body is reacting to the radiation from your cell phone. Women may find their menstrual cycles have become skewed, as well.

Symptoms Of Electrical Sensitivity
One of the most comprehensive studies on the symptoms of electrical sensitivity is a Swedish study compiled as part of the RALF investigation. By far the most common complaint associated with EMF exposures, including cell phone exposures, was skin complaints.
Sensitivity to light/eye problems,
Heart problems/high blood pressure
Pain in joints/muscles
Nausea/general poor health
”Influenza” /throat problems
Note: on this page I’ve only talked about physical symptoms, about what you might typically experience when exposed to cell phone radiation and other EMF devices. Thousands of studies link these exposures to a long list of diseases, medical conditions, including cancer.
The Next Step
If you use a cell phone you should be aware of the risks. You should bear in mind that using a cell phone next to your head means you are emitting a steady stream of electromagnetic energy in close proximity to your brain. The ear, with the cell phone pressed tightly against it, will receive the first of this radiation, and this is where many problems begin.
Being aware that your cell phone might be causing a league of problems and is impacting your health is the first step. Protecting yourself from this radiation is the next step. Click here to read my cell phone radiation protection tips.
Big Brother now wants to control your mind with a 5G network. This is scary, read the entire article:
Find out why 5G is the basis for the IoT (Internet of Things): a complete, inescapable technological control grid manipulating the human energy field.
By Makia Freeman
5G is being rolled out fast right now, with Verizon testing it out in 11 US cities and ATT also conducting experiments. For those who don’t know, 5G is the latest wireless system that telecommunications companies are trying to implement to service wireless communication. It’s designed to allow faster downloads of more data. It uses the 28, 37 and 39 GHz bands, also known as millimetre wave (mmW) spectrum. 5G, which comes from the term 5th generation, is designed to work in conjunction with what former CIA head David Petraeus called the Internet of Things or IoT. The agenda is to hook every single material thing on the planet, as well as humans themselves, onto a vast planet-wide web where everything and everyone become nodes on the network – connected by microchips which are nano-size and can be inhaled (like smart dust).
Many people are encouraging the advancement of 5G by their desire at all costs for convenience and speed (give me my multiple gigabit downloads now!). People are foolishly valuing this over privacy, safety and health. 5G is not merely an upgrade of wireless infrastructure; it is a giant leap towards the erection and installation of a total technological control grid. The agenda is to cover the entire Earth – including rural areas – with the 5G electromagnetic blanket, so that its effects can literally not be escaped by anyone living on this planet.

FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler’s Scary Speech
If I haven’t got your attention yet, please take a look at this video, where FCC (Federal Communications Commission) head Tom Wheeler lays out how 5G is going to happen – consequences be damned. At the 2:42 mark, the video goes through an edited version of his June 2016 speech at the National Press Club in Washington DC. From my perspective, Wheeler appears more than just intense or defiant; he borders on the psychopathic. This guy is another former corporate lobbyist using the good old “revolving door” at the top of the business-political world. He now occupies a key governmental office to promote the agenda of his former industry (telecommunications). He is advocating the rollout of a game-changing technology (with toxic and cancerous side effects for some) that’s going to affect all life on Earth, but he doesn’t want to wait for safety standards. Later on the video, Wheeler ignores and dodges questions about the wireless radiation-cancer connection.
Here’s a summary of his points:
– 5G will penetrate material objects better: thanks to “brilliant engineers”, 5G radiation will be even harder to shield yourself against;
– 5G will be infrastructure-intensive: the plan is to erect even more radiating towers in every corner of the planet, adding a new meaning to the concept of electromagnetic soup;
– 5G will make tens of billions of dollars for its owners through “unanticipated and unintended” consequences (after this point, Wheeler slams his fist on the podium and says, “That’s damn important”);
– 5G is going to go ahead without the FCC waiting for governmental standards (Wheeler proudly proclaims that “unlike other countries”, the US cares about being “first out of the gate” (i.e. economically). He suggests we “turn innovators loose” rather than wait for committees to decide things. He defiantly declares that, “We won’t wait for the standards”);
– 5G will require the sharing of frequencies with the military;
– 5G is the technological basis for the IoT (Wheeler states that “hundreds of millions of microchips” will be in everything [and everyone if they get their way]);
– All parts of the Earth will be covered, so there will be urban and rural radiation saturation.
The Ultimate Technological Control Grid
Like all things in the New World Order, 5G can be understood on many levels. Yes, it’s about companies rushing forward to make money using unsafe technology and unproven products (a very familiar theme throughout human history – see tobacco, Big Pharma drugs, vaccines, GMOs, etc.). However, that’s only the surface level. That is nothing new. The deeper level is really about the construction of a total technological control grid whose ultimate purpose is to know what you’re thinking and feeling, and then be able to change what you’re thinking and feeling so as to control your actions. In other words, complete technological slavery. Like many aspects the worldwide conspiracy, most people who push forward their particular aspect of the overall agenda have no idea of the deeper ramifications or where the whole thing is headed.
Wireless radiation in the MHz, GHz and THz is literally millions, billions and trillions times (respectively) the normal frequency of the Earth – the Schumann Resonance of 7.83 Hz. Image credit: David Dees.
Human Skin and Sweat Ducts Are Antennae and Can be Influenced (Controlled) by 5G Technology
If you think that’s its farfetched to connect 5G and the IoT with a technological control grid, consider the latest evidence. Do you know that our skin (the largest organ in our body) directly responds to 5G? Are you aware that our sweat ducts act as antennae? Do you know that our sweat ducts can receive signals? We are energetic beings, first and foremost. We vibrate and exude frequencies. To affect people energetically is to affect them physically.
Some people in the mainstream may have been shocked to discover the extent of CIA spying on their lives, but that is truly the tip of the iceberg. If the technology already exists to affect, influence and (as we will learn) control the human frequency field and energetic structure, how close are we already to technological slavery? Consider these findings by Israeli scientist Dr. Ben-Ishai in this video:
“[The 5G frequencies] will zap [us] with wavelengths that will interact with the geometrical structure of our skin … is there a health implication?
[In 2008] We found that sweat ducts work like helical antennas … the sweat duct was an integral part of the mechanism for the absorption of energy, electromagnetic, between 75-100 GHz, and that if you changed the character of the sweat duct, i.e. made it work, you could actually change that absorption at some point, and if you could do that you could trace how a person is under stress.
Gal Shafirstein also came to the same conclusion … he actually looked at SAR rates as well. He did this because the American army had commissioned him to explain why their 94Ghz proud dispersal gun made people run away when the beam touched them … if you are unlucky enough to be standing there when it hits you, you feel like your body is on fire … he found the SAR rate was going very high within sweat duct compared to the surrounding tissue … so there’s already evidence that there could be effects on us.
The important thing … is the these structures (papilla) are also on the same basic dimensional level as radio waves from anything from 60 gig to 100 gig (5G).“
““The use of sub-terahertz (Millimeter wave) communications technology (cell phones, Wi-Fi, network transmission antennas) could cause humans to feel physical pain via nociceptors,” stated Dr. Yael Stein, MD, who wrote a letter to the Federal Communications Commission about 5G Spectrum Frontiers.”
Think about it – our natural rhythm is something close to the Schumann Resonance of the Earth, which is 7.83 Hz. We are talking about frequency bands not hundreds, not thousands, not millions, but actually billions times this frequency! 28 GHz is 28,000,000,000 (28 billion) cycles per second! Now we have electronic devices that operate in the THz band (TeraHertz, which is trillions of Hertz). To say this is completely unnatural is the understatement of the millennium. It is completely out of balance, disharmonious and insane. It is wreaking havoc on our energy fields.
The IoT is the manifestation of the agenda to turn limitless and free humans into controllable nodes on the synthetic network.
“Broadly speaking, the Internet of Things has three parts. There are the sensors that collect data about us and our environment: smart thermostats, street and highway sensors, and those ubiquitous smartphones with their motion sensors and GPS location receivers. Then there are the “smarts” that figure out what the data means and what to do about it. This includes all the computer processors on these devices and — increasingly — in the cloud, as well as the memory that stores all of this information. And finally, there are the actuators that affect our environment. The point of a smart thermostat isn’t to record the temperature; it’s to control the furnace and the air conditioner. Driverless cars collect data about the road and the environment to steer themselves safely to their destinations.
You can think of the sensors as the eyes and ears of the internet. You can think of the actuators as the hands and feet of the internet. And you can think of the stuff in the middle as the brain. We are building an internet that senses, thinks, and acts.
This is the classic definition of a robot. We’re building a world-size robot, and we don’t even realize it.
This world-size robot is actually more than the Internet of Things. It’s a combination of … mobile computing, cloud computing, always-on computing, huge databases of personal information, the Internet of Things … autonomy, and artificial intelligence … It’ll get more powerful and more capable through all the interconnections we’re building.
It’ll also get much more dangerous.”
Schneider is a computer expert so his idea of dangerous seems to be limited to software flaws and hacking vulnerabilities. However, the conspiracy goes much deeper than that. The IoT is slated to become the technological control grid in which every single material thing, living and non-living, is attached, and in so doing loses its independence and free will. The IoT is a fake, synthetic version of the already existent network of Nature that surrounds us. However, the dark force behind this agenda cannot control that grid, so is seeking to replace it with one that is detrimental to human health and in which all the nodes on the network can be controlled.
Time to Wake Up – and Fast
This dark agenda – this Synthetic Agenda, this Transhumanist Agenda – to erect a total technological control grid is unfurling way too fast for comfort. We all have to wake up – and fast. With every year that passes, our technological evolution keeps outpacing our spiritual evolution. This can only lead to one thing: technology will fall into the hands of people with little or no scruples who will be happy to use it to further their own ends and enslave others. Luckily, some people are waking up to, even people in positions of power such as a group of mayors in Ohio who have filed a lawsuit to stop 5G towers being erected in their counties, cities and municipalities.
This really is a race against time. If this technological control grid is rolled out in sufficient breadth and depth of reach, and intensity, it will seriously impact our ability to resist it, because it contains the capability to suppress that very resistance. We are living the plot of a science fiction film – but it’s real life and the consequences are deadly. Will humanity be able to recognize the truth quickly enough? Will we be able to stop the insanity and the construction of networks that enslave us?

(Natural News) The scientific dictatorship marches on.
And there’s no stopping it, according to Tom Wheeler, the former FCC Chairman under the Obama administration, who eagerly gave unction to a new spectrum of dangerous and potentially deadly frequencies under the moniker of the 5G network.
His press conference in June 2016 stressed the billions of dollars to be made by building a massive infrastructure, as well as the overarching need for processing power to connect the Internet of things (IoT) to the cloud. He also proudly proclaimed that there is no need for research, tests, studies or any rules whatsoever with respect to these new electromagnetic frequencies (EMF) soon to cover our nation.
Wheeler’s 5G announcement was made just weeks after published results of a $25 million study from the National Toxicology Program (NTP) that exposed rats to “carefully calibrated radio frequency (RF) radiation levels” intended to mimic the typical cell phone use of humans. Scientific American reports that the NTP researchers discovered “some of the strongest evidence to date” linking chronic long-term exposure to smartphones and other wireless devices with “rare cancers in at least two cell types in the brains and hearts of rats.” (RELATED: Follow more news on EMF exposure at EMF.news)
The rats were exposed from in utero to two years of age, every day for about nine hours. Both types of cancers that developed — glioma, in the brain’s glial cells, and schwannoma, in the heart — have also been associated with human cell phone radiation exposure. You may recall the announcement concerning cell phones and cancer risks made in 2011 by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), a group organized under the auspices of the World Health Organization (WHO). Electromagnetichealth.org reports that in May 2011, the IARC “classified the RF frequency from cell phones as a Possible Human Carcinogen (Class B2).
This announcement was the first time an international body provided “an official scientific basis . . . [calling] for precautionary behavior regarding these radiation devices.”
”Tom Wheeler’s presentation at the 5G announcement made no mention of the NTP study, or any prior IARC studies linking cell phones with cancer. In fact, Wheeler took steps to make sure these reports were not mentioned. As explained in the video put together by Josh del Sol, of Takebackyourpower.net, Wheeler even used FCC thugs to forcibly suppress this critical data from being shared publicly.
As explained by Wired, Verizon and AT&T will be operating 5G trials in 2017, with global roll outs expected in 2020. The selling points are incredible speeds, reliability and “ultra high capacity,” which is needed as mankind walks blindly into the realms of virtual reality, driverless cars, cashless systems and the Internet of Things (IoT) monitoring your every move in your nifty smart home appliances.
The blanketing of America with more cell towers, as Wakingtimes.com states, and “untested frequencies in the range of 28 gigahertz to 100 Ghz or more,” does not bode well for the health and well-being of individuals who are “already suffering with symptoms from EMF radiation from WIFI, smart phones, smart meters and newer vehicles.” Wearetheevidence.org advocates for individuals harmed by this pervasive technology. Personal injury testimonies, as well as documented research, indicate these ubiquitous frequencies not only can cause cancer or tumors, but they are also a factor in infertility, autism and ADHD and behavioral disorders. (RELATED: Read Glitch.news for more coverage of problems with electronic systems.)
(Natural News) Verizon recently reiterated plans to launch 5G internet service in the United States by the end of 2018, equipping so-called “Smart Cities” with the latest and greatest data speeds to date. But the dangers associated with 5G electromagnetic frequency (EMF) pollution continue to be ignored, despite growing evidence to suggest that many people will incur serious harm from exposure to it.
5G, short for “fifth generation,” will greatly expand the range of microwave radiation used by consumer devices, including higher-end gigahertz range frequencies that have never before been publicly deployed. These frequencies travel much shorter distances than current 3G and 4G technologies and don’t penetrate buildings as well; but the places where they can reach will be much more saturated in EMF radiation.
The antennas that deliver 5G will also have to be much more plentiful and invasive in order for the network to function, requiring an estimated one million new base stations per carrier. This means that between Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint, Americans can expect to be bombarded with at least four million additional EMF radiators plastered throughout their neighborhoods – the long-term exposure to which remains largely unknown.
It’s all happening in the name of “progress” – but if 5G is so wonderful as its purveyors claim, then why are some legislators pushing new laws that would make it difficult, if not impossible, for local communities to “opt out” of the program? Senator John Thune, a Republican from South Dakota, reportedly introduced a bill recently, known as the “Mobile Now Act,” or S.B. 19, that would eliminate community say in where new cellular antennas are placed.
This means that Verizon would be allowed to legally place a 5G antenna on the light pole right outside of your house, and you’d have no say in the matter. This is problematic as 5G technology has been scientifically shown to harm human life by causing things like insomnia, nosebleeds, and even stillbirths.
Is 5G really about “convenience” and “progress,” or is it about control and depopulation?
The goal is to connect every single “Smart” device in the world, including newfangled microwaves, refrigerators, and even toothbrushes equipped with Wi-Fi technology, to the 5G control grid. And the only way this is possible is to have 5G antennas everywhere – meaning humanity in the very near future won’t be able to avoid them.
Proponents of 5G claim that it’s all about improving energy efficiency and making people’s lives more convenient. But the truth is that it’s about collecting mass amounts of private data that can be sold to marketers for untold billions of dollars. Some say that 5G is also about depopulation, seeing as how it’s an absolute health nightmare.
The National Toxicology Program (NTP) invested $25 million to study the nature of EMF radiation with the aim of proving that all mobile phone radiation is safe. What it ended up finding is that even primitive technologies like 2G can cause DNA damage and brain cancer – suggesting that much stronger 5G emitted from far more towers will be exponentially worse.
“If you search ‘EMF science’ you will find abundant research that shows sperm damage and negative effects on immune, endocrine, cardiac, and nervous system functioning,” explains NaturalHealth365.com. “This is why many people are now experiencing symptoms, such as headaches, tinnitus, and sleep disturbance, when overexposed to wireless technology.”
Concerned citizens are encouraged to contact their local and state officials to urge better protections and more research into 5G technology. You can also warn others about the dangers of EMF radiation and encourage them to take action.

So What Is The Ultimate Best Source of Drinking Water?
The Environmental Working Group (EWG) recommends filtered tap water as the number one source of drinking water.
Not only is filtered tap water cleaner than any form of bottled water, it’s also far cheaper for you to live on filtered tap water than on bottled water.
It’s funny how we don’t think twice about forking out a good few dollars per gallon for bottled water (more than the price of gasoline!), and yet wonder if we can handle the financial burden of paying mere pennies per gallon for a standard water filter.
The trouble with water filters is there are hundreds of different makes and models to go for, and the task of selecting the right one for your needs can be pretty daunting. But worry not – they all use a small number of technologies to remove toxins. I’ll tell you about two of the best types of water filter, including something that’s better than any filter, a little later in this article.
Which Water Purification System is Best for Removing Estrogen?
Well reducing estrogen and reducing the feminizing effect of tap water are two different things.
The major types of estrogen found in our water supply include estrone, estradiol, estriol, and the synthetic ethinylestradiol from medications like the oral contraceptive pill. You could just focus on removing these estrogens from your water supply, and a number of studies have focused on exactly that.
The trouble however, is that many of the other more than 100,000 chemicals in wastewater effluent, also have an estrogenic effect on our bodies. These include dihydrofolliculin, octylphenol, nonylphenol, polyethoxylates, trihalomethanes and bisphenol A.
So rather than look for a water filter that’s just good at removing estrogen, I really think it’s better to look for one that’s good at removing all toxins and impurities in general. This will not only give you water that has a lower feminizing effect on your body, but removing other toxins will be better for your health in general.
Choosing A Water Filter That’s Right For You
There are hundreds of different water filters to choose from. The filter that’s best for you depends on the type of contaminants in your local water supply and your budget.
Your first step is to get a copy of the ‘Water Quality Report’ published annually by your water utility. It may also be called a ‘Consumer Confidence Report’, or just ‘Drinking Water Quality’. You should be able to find it online.
On the report, take note of the pollutants that are close to or exceed the Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) set by the government (it will say so on the report). When choosing a filter, do your research to make sure it can filter out these particular chemicals.
Activated Carbon Filters
Activated carbon filters are very cost effective, easy to install, and take up very little space. They are effective at removing a wide range of different chemicals including estrogens, but don’t fare so well with dissolved minerals like fluoride.
In general, activated carbon filters are your best choice if you are on a tight budget. They remove a wide range of different contaminants, including steroid estrogens and many estrogenic substances like trihalomethanes.
Carbon filters are cheap to buy, cheap and easy to maintain (just one inexpensive cartridge to replace every 6-12 months, or every 1-2 months for water filter pitchers), easy to install, and don’t take up much space.
Carbon filters are not as thorough as reverse osmosis and distillation (see below). They struggle with toxic metals, and don’t remove mineral-based contaminants like fluoride very well.
Studies show they remove about 80% of estradiol, which is far better than no filter at all, but not as thorough as reverse osmosis and distillation.
Also, the quality of water drops with use of the filter. So if you buy a 2 month filter, you’ll get the purest water in the beginning, and your water will become less and less pure toward the end of that second month.
A Good Choice For An Activated Carbon Filter
I personally started off with a basic water filter pitcher. These are cost-effective and hassle-free, you don’t have to mess around with any plumbing under your sink.
Ideally you’d want to get one that’s made of glass, but I’m yet to find one. The next best thing is to go for a BPA-free plastic one (since BPA is a strong estrogenic chemical that leaches from plastic).
Having tried a few pitchers, I found the following to be best at filtering my water:
Aquagear Water Filter Pitcher (BPA Free)
The Aquagear Water Filter Pitcher removes more contaminants than the leading brand. It takes longer to filter the water through, but that’s only because it’s doing a better job of removing all those estrogenic pollutants.
The Aquagear removes arsenic for example, while most activated carbon based water filters do not.
Compared to other water filter pitchers though, the Aquagear pitcher and replacement filters are bleamin’ expensive. You get what you pay for I guess.
Reverse osmosis uses high pressure to force water through a membrane with tiny holes that only let water and very small particles through. It will remove some dissolved salts, organic chemicals, bacteria and pyrogens.
Reverse osmosis filters are very effective at removing impurities from your water. They have to be integrated into your plumbing, and with multiple filters and a storage tank, can take up quite a bit of space.
Reverse osmosis (RO) does a great job at removing contaminants that carbon filters don’t, like fluoride, arsenic, nitrates and perchlorate. Most RO filters are combined with a carbon filter, so they end up removing everything a carbon filter does and more.
As reverse osmosis membranes age, the pores in the membranes become larger and allow more and more impurities to pass through into the treated water. So like with activated carbon filters, the quality of water decreases with use.
High purchase and maintenance cost is another factor. Depending on your model, you are generally advised to replace the reverse osmosis membrane every 2-3 years (though some models last much longer), and multiple (generally 1-5) carbon filter cartridges every 6-12 months.
A LOT of water is wasted as well. Some reverse osmosis filters can waste as much as 10 gallons of water for every 1 gallon of purified water.
Also, you need a plumber to install one of these (although you can do it yourself if you’re a bit of a handy-person), and since it consists of a storage tank, a membrane, and usually multiple filters, it can take up quite a bit of space.
So reverse osmosis filters are better (though not perfect) at removing impurities than activated carbon, but are a lot of hassle to set up, and expensive to maintain.
Good Choices For Reverse Osmosis Filters
1. iSpring RCC7 5-Stage Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration System
This 5-stage filter is reliably thorough in its filtration, being Water Quality Association (WQA) Gold Seal Certified. This means it has been rigorously tested by an independent body, with laboratory tests, literature review and materials assessment.
It removes up to 97.2% of over 1,000 different types of contaminants, including arsenic, asbestos, chlorine, hormones, fluoride, lead, mercury, sodium, bacteria, giardia, and viruses.
It’s also easier to install compared to other reverse osmosis systems, and is backed by a 3-year manufacturer warranty, unlike other companies that only have a 1-year warranty.

2. Home Master TMHP HydroPerfection Reverse Osmosis Water Filter
The Home Master is more expensive than the iSpring above, but for good reason.
Both produce pure water, though the iSpring is WQA certified and the Home Master is not. But the Home Master has other benefits that may interest you.
It’s designed in a different way from most other reverse osmosis water filters, which allows it to purify water faster, so your water has a faster flow rate (good for washing vegetables, and connecting one filter to multiple outlets like the kitchen sink and the refrigerator).
The Home Master is also easier to maintain with easier filter changes. It wastes less water, is quieter than other reverse osmosis systems, and lasts longer, with fewer leaks and fewer problems in general.

Distillation mimics the hydrological (water) cycle, which NATURE uses to purify water.
In the water cycle, the sun heats up and evaporates water from the ocean. The evaporated water rises, until it cools and condenses to form clouds. It then rains, and the water makes its way back into the ocean through the ground.
Pure water is made available to us through streams, lakes, and rivers. The higher up in the cycle, the more pure the water is. If it wasn’t for air pollution, rain water would be 99.9% pure.
With a good water distiller, you get the purity of rain water minus the air pollution.
In a distiller, tap water is heated and boiled in a boiling chamber. Purified steam rises up from the contaminated water, leaving the impurities behind. The steam moves into a cooling coil, where it is run over a fan that cools the steam to condense it back into water. From there the purified water flows into a glass jar or stainless steel holding tank.
Unlike with barrier methods (e.g. activated carbon and reverse osmosis) that remove contaminants from the water, distillation removes the water from the contaminants.
Distillation purifies water in the same way mother nature’s hydrological system does it. No other system can improve upon the natural processes that govern the hydrological cycle, which has supported life on Earth for billions of years.
Unlike with filters, which lose effectiveness with use, distillation will consistently remove impurities, whether you are using the distiller for the first time, or 10 years later.
Distillation by itself still doesn’t remove everything. There are some contaminants that have a lower boiling point than water that will rise up with the steam. These are called “volatile organic compounds” (VOC’s).
However, a lot of distillers use a simple filter at the end of the distillation process to get rid of the VOC’s.
Also, I haven’t searched far and wide for one, but there doesn’t seem to be a widely-available water distillation system that you can hook up to your kitchen tap, like you can with reverse osmosis. Since distillation requires water to be boiled then cooled, all of the units I’ve seen so far are separate from your kitchen sink.
Distillation is an energy-intensive process. It takes a lot of energy to boil water. Most units I’ve seen are electrical, though gas units are available too. Either way, expect to be using quite a bit of gas or electricity. Saying that, it’s still cheaper to distill your own water, than it is to buy distilled water from the shops.
Unlike with activated carbon and reverse osmosis filters, you can’t get water on demand with distillation. It takes time for the distillation process to happen, so you’ll have to distill your water in advance. You can overcome this problem with an automatic distiller, but these are a lot more expensive (see #3 below).
There are some scaremongers out there (usually water filter manufacturers) who claim distilled water is harmful because distillation removes important minerals like calcium and magnesium. But that’s nonsense, because all you need out of water is water. If your body needs minerals, you get it from your diet. Dark green veggies like broccoli and spinach contain far more calcium and magnesium than any source of water.
There’s also the fact that tap water contains both beneficial organic minerals, and harmful inorganic minerals. Filters have no way of differentiating between the two. So if a filter manufacturer claims their filter leaves beneficial minerals behind in the water, then you can bet they also leave harmful minerals behind too.
It consists of a stainless steel boiling chamber at the bottom, a stainless steel coil-based fan assisted cooling system at the top, and a glass collection jar. Any plastic on the unit is BPA-free, and to be extra safe, the water never touches any plastic.
It produces 1 gallon of water in about 5.5 hours, though you can get that gallon a lot faster if you use boiling water to start with.
It also comes with a post-distillation carbon filter, which removes any remaining VOC’s.
To use it, all you do is fill the water chamber with tap water, put the cooling unit over it, position the collection jar, and turn the unit on. Then the fan will come on, and if you used cold water, pure and natural distilled water will start to collect into the collection jar in about 30 minutes. Once the water is all used up, the unit will shut down by itself.
This is one of the smaller distillers out there, and is ideal for single users, couples, and small families.
2. Pure Water Mini-Classic CT Counter Top Distiller
The Pure Water distiller is another small distiller that’s suitable for single users and small families. However, it’s more than twice the price of the countertop distiller above, because of a few distinct advantages:
– It doesn’t boil the water tank dry
With the countertop distiller above, I’ve noticed that when I let it shut off by itself, the machine BURNS the remaining limescale in the wastewater, and the burnt limescale sticks like a black hard muck on the bottom of the beautiful stainless steel tank. This will destroy the stainless steel tank over time. It also means you can end up with lower purity water, because the tank will reach higher temperatures than the boiling temperature of water after all the water is gone.
By shutting off BEFORE all the water has dried up, the Pure Water machine will be easier to clean, it will last longer, and give you purer water.
Maybe this is why they mention a 15 year limited warranty on their website.
– Designed with purity vents
Purity vents in this system allow VOC’s to escape, which means you’ll likely end up with purer water than with a standard countertop distiller.
– It’s made in the USA.
The countertop distiller above is made in China. But hey, it’s still great quality. Don’t forget, the iPhone is made in China too.
3. Durastill 30J 8 Gallon Per Day Automatic Water Distiller
This is an automatic water distiller, which has a bigger tank and higher output than the two distillers above, making it ideal for larger families.
With the above two distillers, you’d get a maximum of 4 gallons of distilled water a day. With this Durastill unit, you’ll get 8 gallons a day.
But that’s not all.
Unlike the two distillers above, an automatic distiller like this one is connected to your water supply, so that it can automatically fill up the reserve tank when the water level is low. This means there’s no need to be home to keep refilling and cleaning the distiller after every use.
Like the Pure Water machine above, the Durastill also has special vents that help VOC’s escape, so your water is ultra-pure.
In the modern world, we are bombarded by estrogens, estrogen-like particles, and anti-androgens from all directions. They are in the food we eat (in the form of preservatives, flavor enhancers, fertilizers, hormones and more), in the air we breath (from vehicle exhaust fumes and general pollution), and the cosmetics we use on our skin (in the form of parabens and other chemicals).
Although the government and industry will argue there is not direct evidence, there is more than enough indirect evidence to suggest these chemicals are responsible for various cancers and countless diseases and developmental disorders. Studies suggest these chemicals are linked to decreasing sperm counts and testosterone levels in men, and increased incidences of conditions like gynecomastia.
Estrogen is everywhere in the modern world, you’d have to be living in a bubble to avoid it all. But thankfully, you can take specific measures to defend yourself.
You’d have to be living in a bubble to avoid all of the feminizing chemicals in your environment. The least you can do though, is avoid as many as you can.
Getting a water filter, or better, a distiller, is a good start. It’s also important to exercise and make dietary and lifestyle changes.
If you have man boobs, it’s probably because you have too much exposure to the female hormone estrogen. Filtering or distilling your water is a crucial step in eliminating man boobs, but there’s a hell of a lot more you can do.
The How To Lose Man Boobs Naturally Video gives you the lo-down on all the different methods you can use to lose your man boobs by combating excess estrogen, and raising levels of the male hormone testosterone.
By bringing your body’s estrogen to testosterone ratio back into its natural, masculine balance, you will finally see that chest start to flatten out. To learn more, click the following link to watch the video:
