Some shocking and fascinating new research has shown that near-zero
levels of arsenic significantly impairs intelligence and reasoning in school
children. Studies showed impaired cognitive functions at concentrations
of just .005 ppm.
But this Manitoba government has not, as yet,after 18 years, recognized the fact that arsenic is a deadly poison!,for they permit the water treatment plant at Virden, to dispose of captured arsenic, taken out of Virden's water source, back into a creek that flows into the Assiniboine river and onward to all points heading towards Winnipeg. How about that for a mixed message on health concerns people.?
What say you, physicians and mothers, lets hear from you
