DRINKING WATER AND WEAK IMMUNE SYSTEMS

| 2

Another disease to be aware of is toxoplasmosis-- a disease from a single-celled parasite toxoplasma gondii. It is noted that there are over 60-million people who are infected with this disease-causing parasite, however most immune systems fight off an illness before symptoms arise, the parasite lying dormant. But for those with weaker immune systems, it's not that easy.

According to the Center for Disease Control, those with weak immune systems should ask their doctors about getting a blood test for toxoplasma. If results are positive, doctors can inform the patient if and when medicine should be taken to prevent the infection from reactivating. A negative test means the person was never infected. But- precautions need to be take to avoid infection. Warning signs of toxoplasmosis include flu-like symptoms and achy muscles. In a healthy person, the "bug" will work its way out. In rarer cases, brain, nerve and eye damage can result. If this disease rings a bell, you may recall it as something pregnant women are cautioned about as well-- the parasite is also found in cat feces and those carrying babies are urged not to changed the litter.

It is important for the health care provider to consider a patient’s individual susceptibilities and the relative risks from microbial pathogens and chemicals. Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR) suggest that “…decisions should be based on knowledge of likely contaminants in a specific source of water, an understanding of the risks and benefits of the various alternatives to tap water, and understanding of the individual’s susceptibility.”

These are just two major diseases that can affect someone with a weak immune system. Don’t let your body be your only filter against the contaminants in your water. Having a water filtration system at home can protect you from consuming any harmful substances found in water. Filtration systems work to remove heavy metals, bacteria, chlorine and many other chemicals. These types of contaminants are often found in water and are harmful to our health, even more so to those with weak immune systems. Protecting your water source could be the only way to be 100% crypto free! Don’t let your body be your only filter against the contaminants in your water. Maintaining our health will give us the strength to live positive and meaningful lives and more importantly to be able to help many others around us.
