MAGNESIUM, DRINKING WATER, & HEALTH
Are you getting enough magnesium to keep yourself healthy?
"According to the U.S. National Academy of Sciences (1977) there have been more than 50 studies, in nine countries, that have indicated an inverse relationship between water hardness and mortality from cardiovascular disease. That is, people who drink water that is deficient in magnesium and calcium generally appear more susceptible to this disease. The U.S. National Academy of Sciences has estimated that a nation-wide initiative to add calcium and magnesium to soft water might reduce the annual cardiovascular death rate by 150,000 in the United States." ( Dr. Harold D. Foster , " Groundwater and Human Health," Groundwater Resources of British Columbia, Ministry of Environment, Lands, and Parks and Environment Canada, pp 6.1-6.3 (reprint), 1994.
And so things stand: overwhelming evidence, mostly foreign, that magnesium can prevent much heart disease and cardiac death; and a huge heart-disease industry loathe to destroy itself by admitting that much heart disease is easily and cheaply preventable with magnesium; thousands of heart specialists who will be out of work if magnesium intakes are increased to 10 mg per Kg of body weight; dozens or hundreds of cardiac hospitals that will go bankrupt if magnesium intake is increased to 10 mg/Kg; and a host of guilty government health agencies who don't wish to admit their bad advice has killed millions; and all the brave intelligence agencies who don't want to be involved, and would rather let millions die than get into a turf war with the FDA and AMA, et al.
So what to do now? BLOW THE WHISTLE!
