I tried to contact you privately but your contact information is not listed on the CDC website and the number listed online is out of order, and the CDC per their webpage said it will take 3 weeks to get a response back after I hit the submit button, so publicly will have to do.
You left shit out of your equations that's gonna make your studies and evals wrong that will affect the human race and Americans long term. I read the articles and the obesity issue. You need to know that everybody is fat in America not cause it's a disease but cause the water supply is contaminated, polluted with psych drugs that's destroying people's reproductive systems slowly. This pollution took 50, 60 years long term to happen, you're seeing the results of that now in present day.
Here's some basics I found out in my investigations of the environment and I wanted to pass it along to you, so it can help you in your studies and evals, solve the problem long term.
1st - The definition of the word safe per the FDA is not the same as everybody else's definition. And I'm not the only person that found out about this.
2nd - Psych drugs are not water soluble, that means they don't dissolve in water and have now affected our water supply all over the USA, hence the 50 60 year build up thru the waste water. It's not people dumping pills down a toliet, it's 50, 60 years or more going into the water thru the waste water, urine, stool etc etc. The cities waste management systems were never properly handled/installed to handle this type of pollution, I don't think anybody in the city knows they all think psych drugs are safe cause of the FDA.
3rd - There are no tests to reveal what's actually in our water supply. Big pharma has patents on these drugs and once those patents have expired they then get reclassified as street drugs and tests are made available. So the studies about our water supply aren't telling the entire story as they can only test for what's available to test for, if there are no tests available for things in our water supply, it will never show up, it will stay hidden.
The FDA is aware of the problem in the water, here's their response:
FDA is aware of reports of very low but measurable levels of medicines in surface waters such as rivers and streams, and to a lesser extent in drinking water. The majority of medicines found in water are a result of the body’s natural routes of drug elimination (in urine or feces).
As previously noted, to better understand the human health and ecological risks from medicines in our water, FDA works with other agencies, including the EPA. FDA encourages safe drug disposal methods to reduce overall medicine levels in our waters.
Additionally, please note that the FDA does not have jurisdiction over the regulation of tap water, EPA has regulatory authority over tap water.
Basically it's the bureaucratic run around, these people know and they don't care, it's not their department. So your studies are gonna be off, and you will never solve the obesity problem no matter how much funding your agency receives.
If you want to solve this problem and get results for this country in regards to obesity or other issues, please take the info I have gathered from my investigations and use it for the betterment of the USA including it's inhabitants, it's citizens, it's taxpayers.
1st - The definition of the word safe per the FDA is not the same as everybody else's definition.
2nd - Psych drugs are not water soluble, that means they don't dissolve in water
3rd - There are no tests to reveal what's actually in our water supply, everything in our water supply, not just what's available to test based on expired patents.
Maybe the FDA can get the ball started by having big pharma release their proprietary patented drug information so that tests can be available, tests can be invented, created to the EPA, the CDC and you can actually find out what's in our water supply so that this entire problem/problems can be solved long term.
Then once you have the tests and you come up with solutions, take that to Congress/Senate and our President and make your case, state your case so that you and your co workers can solve these problems long term for this country. It might also help jump start another economical sector for the USA, the green sector, with water pollution comes water filtration systems, so there will be more doctors, scientists that enter this field so they can invent shit to solve these problems. Currently the only technology available is reverse osmosis and to fit an entire home is like $20k-$30k, can you imagine an entire city? Billions and to maintain it, is not cheap either. Maybe they can invent new shit that's cost effective and works.
Hope this helps you and your crew.
P.S. I know, everybody forgets about the little things, leaves them out of their equations. These 3 little things have led to all these problems including the obesity issue long term. If this doesn't get handled, it will be the end of the human race, the chemical castration issue cause they stopped expanding and building prisons, in some states all together and this issue, this problem is global, worldwide, the USA is not the only country that is embracing chemical castration and stopped building prisons. My estimates will be in the next 10 years you'll start seeing food shortages, that's how rapidly this problem will grow, expand.
The CDC got back to me on Tuesday, I believe the 13th was a Friday, they got back to me on Tuesday, the 17th and got me his email. I've already emailed Dr. Craig Hales my blog post and let him know how I tweeted the CDC and they gave me his email address even though the submit page said 3 weeks. So thank you CDC for getting back to me so quickly so that I could alert Dr. Craig Hales with my findings and information for his job and this agency.
I have no idea what Dr. Craig Hales will do nor how long it will take him etc etc. But, I've done my due diligence.
