Water is the source of life for all living things on this planet. However, it has become a breeding ground for pathogenic microorganisms and intestinal parasites in most developing countries. People around the world have heard the term “Montezuma’s revenge,” a common gastrointestinal illness caused by drinking unsanitary water in Mexico.
A leading cause of ADHD (attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder) and autism in children could be the hidden chemicals lurking in the foods we eat, the water we drink and the products we consume, says a new study recently published in The Lancet. Researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) found that, among other things, the fluoride chemicals added to many public water systems in North America directly contribute to both mental and behavioral disorders in children.
