Heavy metals from drinking water linked to heart disease, stroke

DANGER: Know what is in your drinking water!  Heavy metals can enter your drinking water in a variety of ways and, even in very small amounts, increase your risk of strokes and heart attacks.  The study we reviewed shows that the exposure to heavy metals, even in amounts that are far less than typically previously considered, are harmful to your health. The facts show that it is now suspected that the exposure to heavy metals that are now commonly found in US municipal and private water sources are contributing to heart stroke and heart diseases at epidemic levels. 

“Heart Disease in the United States

One person dies every 36 seconds in the United States from cardiovascular disease. About 659,000 people in the United States die from heart disease each year—that's 1 in every 4 deaths. Heart disease costs the United States about $363 billion each year from 2016 to 2017.”
