Legionnaires Disease – What if Bill de Blasio would have used NASA’s Trick

NEW YORK, NY - AUGUST 04: New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio speaks at a press conference to address the Legionnaire's disease outbreak in the city at Lincoln Hospital on August 4, 2015 in the Bronx borough of New York City. The disease - which is not contagious - has been found in five building water cooling systems, which has infected at least 86 people and killed seven since July as of August 4.

Bill de Blasio is an American politician currently serving as the 109th mayor of New York City.

The Legionnaires Disease outbreak in New York City has now claimed the lives of 10 people, prompting health officials to order that cooling towers throughout the city be tested for the bacteria that causes the disease. 

According to The Associated Press, since its appearance late last month in the South Bronx, 100 people have been diagnosed with the Legionnaires Disease, a form of pneumonia caused by breathing in mist contaminated with the Legionella bacteria. 

Legionnaires Disease is a respiratory bacterial infection usually spread through mist that comes from a water source, such as cooling towers, air conditioning or showers. It is not transmitted person to person. Two sites in the city have tested positive so far, the mayor said: Lincoln Hospital in the South Bronx and a commercial complex.

Despite a surge in cases and a couple of deaths, Mayor Bill de Blasio said this afternoon that New Yorkers have “no reason for alarm” over an outbreak of Legionnaires Disease in the South Bronx.

What Does NASA Know That Mr. de Blasio Does Not?

Throughout the history of the Space Shuttle program, NASA has been using colloidal silver for decades to purify water and kill pathogens such as Legionella. Today, colloidal silver has been used exclusively to purify drinking water on the International Space Station.

Independent in-vitro lab tests prove that high quality colloidal silver kills Legionella quite easily. Applying even a small amount of colloidal silver would not only clear up the offending air coolers that are the known cause of legionella in New York, it might have even saved the lives of those who die from this airborne infection.

So it could happen in your town anytime soon. The cost of naturally clearing a towns water supply from legionalla are minimal, the results are great and save lives. We ask every mayor in the world, to apply NASA’s little trick and therefore to be on the safe side.

Top Reasons to Use Colloidal Silver Products

Colloidal silver contains nano-sized metallic silver particles suspended in distilled water. The particles can kill all forms of pathogens, including viruses, bacteria, fungal infections and parasites. In addition to destroying all types of pathogens, colloidal silver promotes the rapid healing of the infected or destroyed tissues, while leaving all beneficial bacteria untouched.

Colloidal has been used by humans for arguably 3,000 years? Historically, it was used for virtually every ailment you can think of, both internally and externally on the skin. By 1940, colloidal silver products were widely available and recognized as a safe and extremely effective way to treat infectious diseases.

While colloidal silver products have innumerable uses, here are some ways you can benefit from colloidal silver.

1.  Boost your immune system – Colloidal silver can also be used to naturally boost your immune system. With colloidal silver, you can feel better. Colloidal silver will give your immune system the boost it needs.

2. Clean water – In addition to treating and preventing disease, colloidal silver can be used to treat contaminated water. Most of the earth’s fresh water is contaminated and unsafe to drink. You never know when unexpected emergency will arise when you need clean water and don’t have access. That’s why you should always have a small bottle of colloidal silver on hand. Colloidal silver spreads evenly in water and kills pathogens mercilessly, thus providing you with clean, safe water.

How Safe is Tap Water? Not Very……..

Bottled Water Not Always a Healthier Option for People at Risk from Tap Water

“Dear EarthTalk: Bottled water companies would have us all believe that tap water is unsafe to drink. But I’ve heard that most tap water is actually pretty safe. Is this true?”

– Sam Tsiryulnikov, Los Angeles, CA

Environmentalists Fault EPA for Failing to Establish Tap Water Standardsnew bottle
EWG did find over 90 percent compliance by water utilities in applying and enforcing standards that exist, but faulted the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for failing to establish standards on so many of the contaminants—from industry, agriculture and urban runoff—that do end up in our water.

Tap Water vs Bottled Water
Despite these seemingly alarming stats, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), which has also conducted extensive tests on municipal water supplies as well as bottled water, says: “In the short term, if you are an adult with no special health conditions, and you are not pregnant, then you can drink most cities’ tap water without having to worry.” This is because most of the contaminants in public water supplies exist at such small concentrations that most people would have to ingest very large quantities for health problems to occur.

What are the Health Risks of Tap Water?
NRDC does caution, however, that “pregnant women, young children, the elderly, people with chronic illnesses and those with weakened immune systems can be especially vulnerable to the risks posed by contaminated water.” The group suggests that anyone who may be at risk obtain a copy of their city’s annual water quality report (they are mandated by law) and review it with their physician.

What are the Health Risks of Bottled Water?ns_in_water
As for bottled water, it is first important to know that 25 to 30 percent of it comes straight from municipal tap water systems, despite the pretty nature scenes on the bottles that imply otherwise. Some of that water goes through additional filtering, but some does not. NRDC has researched bottled water extensively and has found that it is “subject to less rigorous testing and purity standards than those which apply to city tap water.”

Bottled water is required to be tested less frequently than tap water for bacteria and chemical contaminants, and U.S. Food and Drug Administration bottled water rules allow for some contamination by E. coli or fecal coliform, contrary to EPA tap water rules that prohibit any such contamination.

Similarly, NRDC found that there are no requirements for bottled water to be disinfected or tested for parasites such as cryptosporidium or giardia, unlike more stringent EPA rules regulating tap water. This leaves open the possibility, says NRDC, that some bottled water may present similar health threats to those with weakened immune systems, the elderly and others they caution about drinking tap water.

Goal: Make Tap Water Safe for Everyone
The bottom line is that we have invested considerably in highly efficient municipal water delivery systems that bring this precious liquid straight to our kitchen faucets any time we need it. Instead of taking that for granted and relying on bottled water instead, we need to make sure our tap water is clean and safe for all.

How can you ensure safe drinking water?

Imagine, you and your family can have safe drinking water wherever you are for just pennies and without the need to boil water or use harsh chemicals or drugs.

NutraSilver® weighs 1 ounce and can be carried where ever you go. And all this for only $.03 a liter!

Survivalist love NutraSilver®, a natural mineral

NutraSilver is inexpensive (one 30ml bottle contains enough drops to purify approximately 500 liters of the most pathogenic water drinking water on earth). NutraSilver should be used by people around the world to kill water-born pathogens. Third-world countries already use it to purify their drinking water and to wash their fruits and vegetables without fear of microbial infection.
