In a Facebook post in the group, Christian Communities in world safe locations, Naomi Evans posted the picture and comment above regarding high levels of nitrates in her tap water. She lives in West Sussex, UK. After her fish started dying, she went to a pet store and bought a nitrate test kit. Her nitrate level in her tap water went from 0 ppm to at least 160 ppm. She believes something has been added to the tap water.
Symptoms she experienced were:
– constant thirst
– inability to quench her thirst
In a group she is in, several people went & tested their water. The results showed nitrate levels between 200-450 ppm.
Here are Fact sheets on nitrate in drinking water.
“A nitrate level of up to 3 ppm in Well water is generally believed to be naturally-occurring and safe for drinking”.
I immediately remembered Jeremy’s (the ex-32nd degree Freemason) warning about the Freemasons’ plan to put “something in the water” – a contagion. Based on what Jeremy shared, I understood the timing to be the NEAR FUTURE which would line up with this timing.
“Nitrate is one of the most common groundwater contaminants in rural areas. It is regulated in drinking water primarily because excess levels can cause methemoglobinemia, or ‘blue baby’ disease. Although nitrate levels that affect infants do not pose a direct threat to older children and adults, they do indicate the possible presence of other more serious residential or agricultural contaminants, such as bacteria or pesticides.
Nitrate in groundwater originates primarily from fertilizers, septic systems, and manure storage or spreading operations. Fertilizer nitrogen that is not taken up by plants, volatilized, or carried away by surface runoff leaches to the groundwater in the form of nitrate. This not only makes the nitrogen unavailable to crops, but also can elevate the concentration in groundwater above the levels acceptable for drinking water quality. Nitrogen from manure similarly can be lost from fields, barnyards, or storage locations. Septic systems also can elevate groundwater nitrate concentrations because they remove only half of the nitrogen in wastewater, leaving the remaining half to percolate to groundwater.” (Source article)
Separate article with very important details.
“According to Environmental Working Group, nitrate levels should not exceed 5 ppm, based on evidence that nitrate can increase risks of cancer. In addition to threats of cancer, nitrate exposure in drinking water can cause a number of health problems such as: high-blood pressure, blood poisoning, thyroid disorders and even severe cyanosis.
HEALTH RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH DRINKING NITRATE WATER
Once ingested and coming into contact with the stomach’s bacterial flora, nitrates turn into nitrites, which are much more toxic than nitrates, according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer. Nitrite enters the bloodstream and binds to hemoglobin, changing it to methemoglobin. Methemoglobin does not carry oxygen efficiently which could result in brain damage. Methemoglobinemia causes cyanosis and at higher concentration, asphyxia, as stated by the World Health Organization (WHO) dealing with nitrate and nitrite in drinking-water.
Some adults may be more susceptible to the effects of nitrates than others. Gastric acid secretion failure increases sensitivity to the effects of nitrates. A wide variety of medical conditions, including food allergies, asthma, hepatitis and bile duct stones, may be associated with insufficient gastric acid secretion.
Nitrite is absorbed in the blood, and hemoglobin that carries oxygen in the blood is converted to methemoglobin. Babies can become seriously ill if exposed to nitrate levels above 10 mg/L and are prone to nitrate-induced methemoglobinemia. Not only babies, but also adults with reduced stomach acidity, people suffering from stomach conditions such as gastric ulcers, pernicious anemia, adrenal insufficiency, gastritis, or gastric carcinoma are susceptible to the effects of elevated nitrate.
There is also a proven correlation between high-blood pressure and increased nitrate exposure through drinking water. Two different studies published in 1971 and 1977 that examined the connection between nitrate intake and hypertension lead to the conclusion that there’s a link between nitrate intake and hypertension. The first study, published in the American Journal of Public Health, found a positive relationship between hypertension and increased nitrate exposure through drinking water. Among the parameters analyzed in drinking water: hardness, sodium, nitrate and chlorine, the strongest relationship was between elevated nitrates levels and increased hypertension. In the study, Republican River residents, with the nitrate concentration 3 times lower than the current MCL, had hypertension mortality rates. The second study, conducted on 18 communities in Weld Country, Colorado, provides some evidence supporting the initial findings. Among residents in the exposed communities, there was an earlier onset of hypertension.
HUMAN EVIDENCE THAT NITRATE IN DRINKING WATER CAN CAUSE CANCER
According to doctors, nitrates and nitrites are an important danger not only for infants, but also for adults. The risk is high and could cause not only intoxication but even more rapid phenomena, such as urticarias caused by nitrates and nitrites. More seriously, they can interfere in the thyroid activity, which coordinates all metabolism (protein, carbohydrate or lipids) and can be responsible with cancer.
A study conducted by the National Cancer Institute,indicate that women consuming nitrate-contaminated water face a greater risk of thyroid cancer. Another study conducted by Danish researchers found that individuals drinking water with a high nitrate content exhibited a dose related increase in hypertrophy. This condition is marked by enlargement of the thyroid, the gland responsible for many of the body’s endocrine and hormonal functions. Based on other findings, there is also an association between nitrate intake and subclinical hypothyroidism in women.
Nitrates can lead to the formation of nitrosamines, substances involved in the development of some cancer. Under the acidic conditions in the stomach nitrate is converted to nitrites. Once formed, nitrosating agents can react with amines and amides to form nitrosamines and nitrosamides, collectively known as N-nitroso compounds. Nitrate are considered probable human carcinogens. Nitrosamides directly alkylate DNA and may induce tumors in many organs. Certain nutrients are known to influence endogenous NOC formation in the stomach. Since 1976, there have been conducted 8 different human epidemiology studies in 11 countries, which indicate a relationship between increased rates of stomach cancer and increasing nitrate intake. A 1985 study in Britain, found that women exposed at greater than 7 ppm had gastric cancer risks, almost 10 % higher than women exposed at concentrations between 0 and 2.5 ppm.
The National Cancer Institute found greater incidence of bladder cancer among people who drink nitrate-contaminated water with concentrations far lower than the federal limit. The International Agency for Research on Cancer concluded in a review of 11 N-Nitroso compounds for which adequate data was available the following: “should be regarded for practical purposes as if [they] were carcinogenic in man”. What is more, the National Academy of Sciences noted that “there is no reason to suppose that man is not susceptible.”
Thus, a study at the University of Iowa discovered a link between long-term nitrate exposures from drinking water and increased risks of ovarian and bladder cancer among postmenopausal women. A different study conducted at the same university in 2001, found the same association between long-term nitrate exposures from drinking water and increased risks of ovarian and bladder cancer in women.
Ingestion of nitrate-contaminated water, in the range of 5 to 10 ml/L increases the risk of colon, ovarian and bladder cancer, as shown by the National Cancer Institute. These risks are highest for people with low vitamin C and E intake, red meat consumption, which increase the formation of N-nitroso compounds in the body.
The United States National Research Council found suggestions of an association between high nitrate intake and gastric cancer.In a different study in the Piemonte Region of Italy researchers found a positive relationship between high nitrate content (above 4.5 mc/l as nitrate) in drinking water and communities having a significantly elevated cancer risk water (Gilli 1984).
THINGS TO CONSIDER FOR A PATH TO A NITRATE-FREE HYDRATION
It’s dangerous to think that “water softeners” purify for nitrates, it is not the case. Under-sink gadgets do not remove nitrates from water to a significant degree. The purification of water through reverse osmosis, ion exchange or distillation vary in their effectiveness even when good handled.
The best way you can ensure you are drinking low-nitrate water is to get the water from a guaranteed low-nitrate source.
Nitrates are considered an acute toxin to infants, pregnant women and adults especially those with reduced stomach acidity and people deficient in the enzyme that changes methemoglobin back to normal hemoglobin, which are more susceptible to nitrate-induced methemoglobinemia.
Nitrates do not disappear after boiling, on the contrary, boiling increases the concentration of nitrates and implicitly the toxicity.
Prolonged intake of high levels of nitrate are linked to gastric problems due to the formation of nitrosamines. N-nitrosamine compounds have been shown to be carcinogenic in test animals. The N-nitroso compounds carcinogenic in animal species are probably also carcinogenic in humans. Studies of people exposed to high levels of nitrate are proving more and more evidence towards an increased risk of cancer.
Nitrates in drinking water are far more dangerous than nitrates in food. In fact, most of the nitrate we consume is from our diets, but unlike dietary intake, drinking water is not accompanied by micronutrients that could inhibit endogenous nitrosation.
MAKE DRINKING NITRATE-FREE WATER A TOP CHOICE
To address the effects of nitrates on human health, a group of international researchers are also planning to conduct the largest-ever study of the effects of maternal consumption of nitrate-contaminated drinking water on birth outcomes among approximately one million babies.
Adults along with pregnant women and babies are also prone to intoxication with nitrates, therefore it is important to take proactive steps and ensure that they drink pure water.”
I rarely read the posts in this group so I truly felt like God led me to see this yesterday. Please consider getting a nitrate test kit if your pets and/or you start to experience any health effects. If nitrate levels are high, please buy different brands of bottled water to check nitrate levels and drink the bottled water brand with the least nitrates. Remember high levels of nitrates will negatively impact pets as well.

****HER BOTTLED WATER IS TESTING IN THE HIGH TOXICITY LEVEL AS WELL FOR NITRATE. 🙄😳
