When I mention kidney disease… a lotta people tune right out.

“Oh, that’s not me.”

Well, friend, I’ve got news for you…

There’s a good chance that IS you… whether you know it or not.

Nearly every senior has at least SOME decline in kidney function -- and about HALF of all folks past the age of 75 have full-blown kidney disease.

But most DON’T know it… because the earliest stages are often UNDIAGNOSED.

Docs often don’t pick up on it until it gets pretty advanced.

The latest research shows one way it can hit that point without you or your doc even noticing… at first…

And it’s something else that MILLIONS of Americans are living in blissful ignorance of.

It’s a dangerous toxin hiding in plain sight.

But I’ve got what you need to get STRONGER kidneys… and protection against major chronic disease… all at once.

Is this common contaminant KILLING your kidneys?

Drinking water is a sick issue…

Because good quality is really, really tough to get.

I gotta laugh whenever I see a headline that the levels of lead in the water are “within safe limits.”

Here’s a simple fact…

There is NO SAFE LEVEL of lead in your water.

A new study levels of lead that are “safe”… at least, according to nonsensical government standards… are absolutely DANGEROUS for people with declining kidney function.

The feds allow up to 0.015 mg/L of lead in the water before local authorities are supposed to take action. (Out in the real world, however, many don’t exactly rush to fix the problem. See: Flint).

But the new study of patients on dialysis finds that levels a third lower than that “safe” level… just 0.01 mg/L… can lead to declining function based on hemoglobin concentration.

And I gotta believe this isn’t exactly doing any favors for the REST of us -- especially folks with already declining kidney function and undiagnosed kidney disease.

You can contact your local provider for the latest water test results. You could also get your water tested independently.

Or you can save yourself some time, trouble and money… and just ASSUME there’s a whole lotta stuff you don’t want in your water.

Because there almost certainly IS.

U.S. drinking water routinely contains lead AS WELL AS other unwanted contaminants, like…

  • other metals
  • antibiotics
  • fuel residue
  • hormones
  • and more.

Then there’s the stuff in there on purpose… like fluoride and chlorine.

No thank you!

You could filter your water… not with those popular faucet attachments… but something a little more heavy-duty…

Like a reverse-osmosis filter, which can remove close to everything.

The problem with that is those filters ALSO strip out the minerals you NEED in your H2O!

Instead, you could drink bottled water… but not all of them are as clean as you think!

Recent tests from Consumer Reports find some brands are contaminated with the dangerous “forever chemical” PFAS… which has been linked to cancer and other problems.

My choice here… when NONE of the options are really ideal… is glass-bottled spring water a.k.a. “artesian water” a.k.a. “mineral water.”
