First Study Finds Neonic Pesticides in US Drinking Water

As concerns grow about the dangers of neonicotinoids, which are lethal not only to insects that feed on agricultural crops but bees and butterflies, BBC.com reports on new findings that these pesticides are showing up in drinking water. The up side is that activated carbon filtration can negate the poisons’ presence in the water.

The introduction of neonicotinoids into our planet’s ecosystem is one of the most disastrous ecological things ever to happen. For years, I’ve been saying these pesticide-coated seeds are simply too toxic to use. Neonicotinoids have been implicated in massive bee die-offs plaguing the U.S. and other parts of the world, and research shows they’re also harmful to butterflies, earthworms and birds, yet they continue to be used on a massive scale.

And while the pesticide is touted as being safe for you, now that it’s showing up in water systems, there is no excuse for allowing this disastrous product to stay on the market, especially since new evidence shows that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) — which is supposed to protect you from harmful products like this — actually has been colluding with pesticide maker Monsanto to protect the company’s interests instead.

Unfortunately, more than half of the chemicals found in U.S. drinking water are unregulated, and many of the legal limits may be too lenient for safety. This is why filtering your water is an absolute necessity — and that means your whole house. One of the best filtration systems I've found is the Pure & Clear Whole House Water Filtration System, which uses a three-stage filtration process.
