THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake, We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power... We are different from all the oligarchies of the past, in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just round the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power." -- from George Orwell's 1949 novel "1984"

Ehud Barak says a Palestinian state would be ‘non-viable’

Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak says it is urgent to establish a Palestinian state– but he assured an Israeli audience that that state will be “non-viable.”

Barak, a Labor leader who has challenged the current Prime Minister from the left, was speaking to the Herzliya conference, in remarks published yesterday. He said Israel’s future is in jeopardy because the world sees that Netanyahu is not sincere about a two-state solution.

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA), the National Defense Forces (NDF) and other pro-government factions have further advanced against ISIS and US-backed militants in the province of Homs. On Thursday, government troops captured Tal Ghurab northwest of the US garrison of Zquf near the Syrian-Iraqi border. With the liberation of Tal Ghurab, the SAA and its allies increased pressure on US-backed militants operating in the area and strengthened the Syrian military position at the border with Iraq.

Beware this Android banking malware posing as a software update

A sophisticated banking trojan has once again develop new techniques in order to trick Android users into downloading the malware.

It's the latest variant of Marcher Android malware and this time it's posing as an Adobe Flash Player Update. Having first appeared on Russian-speaking undeground forums in late 2013, previous incarnations of Marcher have posed as a security update a Super Mario mobile game and more.

Uncovered by researchers at Zscaler Threatlabz, this version of the banking trojan is using new lure techniques to spread infections, including adult content and links taking advantage of hype around new mobile games. All of the malware downloads are accessed from third-party sites and not via the official Google Play store.

Microsoft says 'no known ransomware' runs on Windows 10 S — so we tried to hack it

Microsoft claims "no known ransomware" runs on Windows 10 S, its newest, security-focused operating system.

The software giant announced the version of Windows earlier this year as the flagship student-focused operating system to ship with its newest Surface Laptop. Microsoft touted the operating system as being less susceptible to ransomware because of its locked down configuration -- to the point where you can't run any apps outside the protective walled garden of its app store. In order to get an app approved, it has to go through rigorous testing to ensure its integrity. That's one of several mitigations that helps to protect the operating system to known file-encrypting malware.

We wanted to see if such a bold claim could hold up.

Spoiler alert: it didn't.

Virgin Media said the risk to customers with a Super Hub 2 router was small, but advised them to change both their network and router passwords if they were still set as the default shown on the attached sticker.

The advice comes after a Which? investigation found that hackers could access to home networks and connected appliances in as little as four days.

Report: Most US Government Web Sites Fail Basic Cybersecurity Tests

It seems like cybersecurity is in the news all the time these days, with scams more prevalent than ever and phishing on the rise. So you’d think major web sites would be more secure than ever, right? It turns out that some of them are, but some pretty important ones aren’t.

According to a new report from the Online Trust Alliance, consumer sites like Twitter and YouTube have some of the best security practices, and are the most “trusted” at keeping user data safe. But over half of government web sites are exposed to cyberattacks, which is a bit alarming considering the nature of data that’s often transmitted through them.

Microsoft PatchGuard flaw could let hackers plant rootkits on x64 Windows 10 boxen

Flaws in Microsoft PatchGuard create a means for hackers to plant rootkits on Windows 10, 64-bit OS devices.

The newly discovered attack technique, dubbed GhostHook, allows attackers to completely bypass PatchGuard, security researchers at CyberArk Labs warn.

PatchGuard (formally known as Kernel Patch Protection) was developed to prevent Windows users patching the kernel, and by extension make the OS more secure by preventing hackers from running rootkits at the kernel level. CyberArk Labs reckons GhostHook is the first technique that thwarts the defensive technology to bypass PatchGuard and hook a rootkit at the kernel level.

The Government will need to decide which legislation to keep, and which to throw out, after Brexit.

Law enforcement agencies failing to report hate crimes

In violation of a longstanding legal mandate, scores of federal law enforcement agencies are failing to submit statistics to the FBI’s national hate crimes database, ProPublica has learned.

The lack of participation by federal law enforcement represents a significant and largely unknown flaw in the database, which is supposed to be the nation’s most comprehensive source of information on hate crimes. The database is maintained by the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services Division, which uses it to tabulate the number of alleged hate crimes occurring around the nation each year.

Hawaii's largest homeless camp: rock bottom or a model refuge?

Tucked around a corner, a woman named Twinkle Borge greeted the schoolkids from her metal folding chair. A seven-year-old girl tugging a red wagon full of water jugs paused to give Borge a kiss on the cheek. Then all three walked into their home: the largest homeless encampment in Hawaii.

Remarkably, some 200 people live there, and six infants were born there over the past year alone. Even in the state with the highest homelessness rate in the US, it draws attention. Yet while residents acclaim it as a novel community that incorporates ancient Hawaiian principles, it is now at risk of being swept away.

“We know from what we’ve seen in the past, once an encampment goes above a certain size, it becomes unmanageable,” said Scott Morishige, the governor’s coordinator on homelessness.

Gunman Didn’t Plan Alexandria Baseball Shooting, Visited Sanders’ Senate Office – FBI

Hodgkinson, 66, fired on House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-Louisiana) and other GOP lawmakers last Wednesday morning, during the final practice for the annual charity congressional baseball game. He fired 60 shots as he stalked the Alexandria, Virginia field, injuring Scalise and three others, from a modified 7.62mm caliber SKS rifle and a 9mm handgun before he was killed, likely by Capitol Police officers on Scalise’s protective detail.

Hired gun: Is war with Iran now inevitable under new Saudi crown prince?

By most accounts, the young crown prince was, just three years earlier, an entirely obscure figure whose short period as defense minister was marred by several unfortunate setbacks, including billions of dollars lost in Yemen. Then there was the time he threw his weight behind an oil scheme that resulted in an oil price crash, which has left the Saudi economy decimated.

The new crown prince really does have an awful lot to prove. But that’s not a good thing.

Ruthlessly ambitious and an outsider, this makes him dangerous and unpredictable, yet for Donald Trump’s purposes the perfect partner to spearhead his ill-conceived campaign against Iran. Slowly, Trump’s pieces are falling into place in the Middle East, and it is no surprise that the first media in the region to praise Mohammed’s swift takeover of the cherished post was that of Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Iran will not "go gently into that good night" of regime change.

And there is something that President Trump doesn't seem to factor into his calculus, and that is the long-standing relationship between Iran and Russia.

Should Iran be attacked by Saudi Arabia and the US, I would almost guarantee you that Russia will come to Iran's aid militarily; and that...will be a game changer.

Is the health insurance business a racket? Yes, literally. And this is why the shameless pandering to robber baron corporations posing as “health providers” is such an egregious … and obvious … tactic to do nothing more than plump up insurance company profits.

And do you know who’s to blame? Believe it or not, the downfall of the American health insurance system falls squarely on the shoulders of former President Richard M. Nixon.

A Grain Of Truth: RCEP And The Corporate Hijack Of Indian Agriculture

The plight of farmers in India has been well documented. A combination of debt, economic liberalisation, subsidised imports, rising input costs and a shift to cash crops (including GM cotton) has caused massive financial distress. Over 300,000 (perhaps closer to 400,000) have taken their lives over the last 20 years. From the effects of the Green Revolution (degraded soils, falling water tables, drought, etc.) to the lack of minimum support prices and income guarantees, it is becoming increasingly non-viable for many smallholder farmers to continue. The effects of last year’s demonetisation policy merely compounded the situation.

The Stop Arming Terrorists Act is so unique that it’s also the only bill of its kind that would also bar the government from funneling money and weapons through other countries that support (directly or indirectly) terrorists such as Saudi Arabia.

They house people in deathtraps. They poison the drinking water. They financialize and corrupt almost every otherwise beneficial social institution from public education to healthcare. They foment endless wars for the pursuit of their own power and profits.

They have the courts pronounce their soulless corporations as ‘people,’ while people themselves are judged to be of little consequence in comparison, to be thrown aside as if they were trash.

They catch the unsuspecting within the jaws of stagnant wages and corporate monopolies, and squeeze until there is nothing left.

Thus, al-Julani’s Nusra Front is only a splinter group of the Islamic State, which split from its parent organization in April 2013 over a leadership dispute between the two organizations.

Former Bishop of Lewes and Gloucester Peter Ball was jailed for 32 months in October 2015 after admitting to sexually abusing 18 people aged 17-25 while in service.

Ball, described as a “sadistic sexual predator” by his victims, even admitted to abusing a 12-year-old. He was released in February after his sentence was shortened to 16 months.

The Left Has One More Argument: Kill Them!

To talk about “both sides” being guilty of provocative rhetoric is like talking about “both genders” being guilty of rape.

Hillary Clinton as unpopular today as she was last year

Seven months after the election, Hillary Clinton remains as unpopular today as she was after November's election, a new poll found.

According to Gallup, Americans' views of the Democratic presidential candidate remain unchanged, as 41 percent of people said they have a favorable view of Clinton, who challenged President Trump in last year's presidential race.

Clinton's favorability has remained unchanged over the last seven months, Gallup reported, with 43 percent of Americans saying they had a positive view of the 2016 presidential candidate in November. Her favorability dropped to 41 percent in December, and has been the same since then.

With the exception of Clinton, losing presidential candidates over the last 25 years have seen a boost of at least 4 percentage points in their favorability after the election, according to previous Gallup polls.

UK population explosion: 65.6 million now live here in sharpest annual rise since 1947

BRITAIN'S population has seen its sharpest increase in nearly 70 years largely as a result of mass immigration, official figures showed today.

Data showed there were an estimated an estimated 65,648,000 people living in the country at the end of June last year.

Over the 12 months to the middle of 2016, the number of inhabitants went up by 0.8 per cent or 538,000. It was an increase roughly equivalent to the population of Bradford.

In numerical terms the total represented the largest rise since the 551,000 increase record in the 12 months to mid-1947, a surge cause mainly by the post-war baby boom.

Brexit boom for Britain as factory orders hit their highest level for nearly 30 years

BRITISH factory orders have hit their highest level for nearly 30 years, the CBI business organisation revealed today.

The figures will fuel optimism for Britain's economic future as we prepare to leave the European Union.

They also bear out analysis that the fall in the value of the pound since the EU referendum a year ago today, on June 23, 2016, has significantly boosted industry and particularly exporters.

RUSSIA vs. USA: Where’s The Gold Going??

As the United States continues to push towards a military conflict with Russia, there will likely be no real winner when the dust settles.  However, if we compare the these two superpowers in the current “gold market”, the Russians are the clear winners.

US Navy ballistic missile intercept test fails

The U.S. Navy conducted a failed ballistic missile intercept Wednesday with its SM-3 Block IIA off the coast of Hawaii.

The destroyer John Paul Jones, running the Navy’s top-of-the-line Aegis Baseline 9.C2 combat system, failed to intercept a medium-range ballistic missile launched from the Pacific Missile Range Facility at Kauai, Hawaii.

The destroyer detected and tracked the target on the AN/SPY-1 phased array radar but was unable to intercept it. It was the second test of this latest iteration of the SM-3. The John Paul Jones successfully shot down a target in February with it. That test was the first intercept using Baseline 9.2C

Why are the US government and military accepting weaponry which does not work?!?

Killer Drones and the Militarization of U.S. Foreign Policy

To many around the world, U.S. foreign policy has been dominated for the past 16 years by military actions in the Middle East and South Asia, and large land and sea military exercises in Northeast Asia. On the world stage, American efforts in the areas of economics, trade, cultural issues and human rights appear to have taken a back seat to the waging of continuous wars.

Continuing the use of drone warfare to carry out assassinations will only exacerbate foreign distrust of American intentions and trustworthiness. It thereby plays into the hands of the very opponents we are trying to defeat.

During his campaign, Donald Trump pledged he would always put “America First,” and said he wanted to get out of the business of regime change. It is not too late for him to keep that promise by learning from his predecessors’ mistakes and reversing the continued militarization of U.S. foreign policy.

Nigeria will pass US as third most populated country by 2050

The world's population is growing.. and quickly!

In just the next seven years, India, which now has 1.3 billion people is expected to overtake China as the most populous country in the world.

According to a United Nations report, by 2050, Nigeria, now the seventh largest country is projected to pass the U.S. population of around 326 million people as the third most populated.

Director of the Economic and Social Affairs' Population Division, John Wilmoth says, "The population in Africa is notable for its rapid rate of growth, and it is anticipated that over half of global population growth between now and 2050 will take place in that region."

The U.N. forecasts that the following nine countries will see most of that growth: India, Nigeria, Congo, Pakistan, Ethiopia, Tanzania, United States, Uganda and Indonesia.

An Old Nightmare Returns: The Balkans Simmer Again

The latest worrisome development is the victory of the most hardline factions in Kosovo’s just-completed national elections. An alliance that Kosovo’s media have dubbed the “war wing,” emerged as the largest bloc in parliament, garnering 34 percent of the vote. The principal leaders of that faction, headed by the Democratic Party of Kosovo, are President Hashim Thaci, and another former leader of the infamous Kosovo Liberation Army, Ramush Haradinaj, who is likely to become prime minister. European Union and UN investigators have accused both men of numerous war crimes during Kosovo’s war of secession from Serbia in the late 1990s.

FLASHBACK - Stanford prison experiment

The Stanford prison experiment (SPE) was an attempt to investigate the psychological effects of perceived power, focusing on the struggle between prisoners and prison guards. It was conducted at Stanford University on August 14–20, 1971, by a research group led by psychology professor Philip Zimbardo using college students.[1] It was funded by the U.S. Office of Naval Research[2] as an investigation into the causes of difficulties between guards and prisoners in the United States Navy and United States Marine Corps. The experiment is a topic covered in most introductory psychology textbooks.[3]

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a famous psychology experiment, conducted in the context of a prison with guards and prisoners. In the experiment, who was a guard and who was a prisoner was decided totally by chance. But as the experiment progressed, the guards became abusive while the prisoners became submissive. As mentioned above, the experiment was canceled early because the abuse got out of hand.

Following yesterday's interview with Miriamme Azizi, it occurred to me that the dynamics of guard and prisoner apply to other situations than just prisons.

Any group, whether it be government, bankers, or clergy, that "imprisons" another group, either politically, economically, or religiously, will abuse the captive population, and over time, the abuse inevitably increases. From this simply reality, one gets dictatorship, impoverishment, sexual abuse of children, and other evils.

Following yesterday's interview with Miriamme Azizi, it is clear that this is going on in Israel, where Israel's government is increasingly abusing, not just the Palestinians, but Jewish Israelis and even Americans "imprisoned" inside Israel. And, of course, the same is happening here in the United States with an increasingly tyrannical government disrespective of our rights, and bankers, who commit fraud upon their clients with seeming impunity. And of course, the continuing problem of clergy sex abuse of children.

This is the science behind the old saying that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. And it was awareness of this that led the Founding Fathers of the United States to design a weak central government with three separate branches to keep an eye on each other, and as a last resort, the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms to hold an abusive government in check.

But clearly, in the face of the inevitable escalation of such abuse by our "guards", this nation is on the inevitable path to revolt. I don't like it, but I must accept it.

Ehud Barak Warns: Israel Faces 'Slippery Slope' Toward Apartheid

While Israel's current situation is "not yet apartheid," the country is on a "slippery slope" heading in that direction – thus says former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak in an interview airing Wednesday night on German television.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Former Prime Minister Barak, a word please; do you not recognise that your country is already there, as a fully developed, wretchedly apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy, with nuclear weapons?!?

Australia says to resume air strikes in Syria after Russia threat

Russia said on Monday it would treat U.S.-led coalition aircraft flying west of the River Euphrates in Syria as potential targets and track them with missile systems and military aircraft, but stopped short of saying it would shoot them down.

As a result of the threat, Australia said on Tuesday it would suspend its military campaign.

On Thursday, a decision was made to resume the air strikes in Syria after an assessment of the Russian statement, although it did not say when they would begin again.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WOW, that was a quick turnaround on Governmental Policy in Canberra!

Israel vs. the United Nations: The Nikki Haley Doctrine

The United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, seems to be championing a single cause: Israel.

When Haley speaks about Israel, her language is not merely emotive nor tailored to fit the need of a specific occasion. Rather, her words are resolute, consistent and are matched by a clear plan of action.

Along with Haley, the rightwing Israeli government of Benjamin Netanyahu is moving fast to cultivate the unique opportunity of dismissing the United Nations, thus, any attempt at criticizing the Israeli Occupation.

Unlike previous UN ambassadors who strongly backed Israel, Haley refrains from any coded language or any attempt, however poor, to appear balanced. Last March, she told a crowd of 18,000 supporters at the Israel lobby, AIPAC’s annual policy conference, that this is a new era for US-Israel relations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Haley plays the "Israel Whisperer" to the absolute detriment of other relationships in the Middle East, which are equally critical to the possibility of peace being achieved here.

To downplay Israel's egregious human rights abuses against the Palestinians is rather akin to a doctor's touching up an x-ray, so the patient doesn't believe their cancer is really that severe.

As ISIS Loses Ground, US Is on a Collision Course With Syria and Iran

As ISIS loses ground in Syria, the US continues to deploy additional forces in the area. There is no expectation of the war so much ending as the US transitioning to a war against Syria and Iran for control over Syria, something some members of the National Security Council are openly advocating.

America’s long-stated goal of regime change in Syria makes this transition something of an easy sell as part of the narrative, and hawks have been salivating at a shot at fighting Iran so long they’ll likely embrace anything Iran is involved in, much as they have wars like the Saudi War in Yemen, where Iran’s connection is largely a myth.

US, Russia Continue to Inch Toward Confrontation in Syria

In backing the rebels in the early part of the Syrian Civil War, the US was rather cynically engaging in a proxy war against Russia, angling for regime change in Russia’s main Mediterranean ally, and the host of their lone Mediterranean base.

Syria’s been a source of tension ever since between the two countries, but as America’s direct ground involvement in Syria increasingly involves attacking government targets, the risk of direct military conflict between the US and Russia, with Syria as the backdrop, is growing precipitously.

US military involvement in Syria long was limited to attacks against ISIS targets, with the occasional attack against al-Qaeda forces in the Syrian northwest. Despite US assurances that strikes a few months ago against a Shi’ite militia in the country’s southeast were a one-time deal, those strikes have grown increasingly common.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears to me to be only a matter of time before the US and Russia are in direct military confrontation in Syria.

I don't know what the Vegas odds are on this, but I would suggest, with the ratcheting up of tensions here, we will see this happening sooner rather than later.

Saudis, Allies Have ‘List of Demands’ for Qatar

Though the details are not yet a matter of public record, US officials are confirming that Saudi Arabia and its allies have prepared a “list of demands” for Qatar related to ending the blockade of the tiny Persian Gulf nation. It is not clear if the Qataris have been given the demands yet, with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson saying he hopes they will be presented with them “soon.”

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and the Foreign Minister of Qatar
While we don’t know the content of this list of demands, we do still have the huge list of demands given to Qatar by Saudi Arabia two weeks ago, which may well form the basis for this latest list. This included severing all diplomatic ties with Iran, the permanent shut down of al-Jazeera, and a pledge never publicly contradict any GCC member nations, among other things.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We will see how this plays out; but if Saudi Arabia ultimately invades Qatar, because Qatar refuses to yield to Saudi Arabia's demands, and with Turkish troops on the ground here, and Iran pledging support, what will the orders be to US military commanders in the country if this happens?!?

FLASHBACK - Webb 'Suicide' Looking More Like Murder

Mr. Lyons pronouncement about a distinct possibility of suicide, not even PROBABILITY, should be enough of a RED FLAG to convince even the true believers that something is rotten in Sacramento. If Gary Webb committed suicide with 2 shots to the head via a .38 caliber pistol, then I've got a nice condo to sell you in Fallujah! But wait, there's more compelling evidence to refute the lie that what we have here is a suicide. And it looks a lot like cotton candy all spin and mostly hot air evidence. Once you bite into it you realize it's a bundle of perception control, mostly innuendo, or black magic designed to conjure a pre-determined picture in your mind, in order to reinforce the BIG lie. Then there's the issue of 2 shots to the head with a .38 caliber pistol.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Both "America's War on Drugs" and the review in Rolling Stone (below) refer to Gary Webb as having died of suicide, but the reality is that Webb was shot TWICE in the head with a .38.

Traders Get Burned In Ethereum Flash Crash

The white hot cryptocurrency Ethereum went on a wild ride on Wednesday, plummeting from around $320 to around 10 cents in a so-called "flash crash."

...

As Adam White, the VP of GDAX, explained in a blog post, one investor placed a multi-million dollar Ethereum "sell" order at 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday. The size of the order caused the price of the currency, which is already volatile, to dip.

Things started to go really haywire, however, as the price dip triggered a series of stop loss orders.

"This slippage started a cascade of approximately 800 stop loss orders and margin funding liquidations, causing ETH to temporarily trade as low as $0.10," White explained.

In other words, the computers executing the stop loss orders began to sell at all costs and, so long as there was someone on the other side to match the order, the trade went through—even if the price was totally irrational, and driven only by an algorithmic frenzy.

Democrats Block Witnesses from Testifying in House Intel Probe

House Democrats are continuing to block testimony from about a dozen witnesses who sought to appear before the intelligence oversight panel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Congressional officials said one of the key witnesses, former informal adviser to the Trump campaign Carter Page, was scheduled to testify at a closed hearing of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

But Democrats on the committee blocked the testimony, asserting they needed more time to prepare.

"He's the guy that many Democrats have been pointing to as the supposed mastermind and you would think they were interested hearing his story," said one Capitol Hill official.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Democrats don't want Page testifying, because the truth he will tell will simply cement the reality that there's no "there" there to the charges of Russian tampering with the 2016 elections.

Trump’s Preferred Candidate Wins Again, This Time in Saudi Arabia

President Trump wasted no time on Wednesday calling the newly named crown prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman. Less than 24 hours after King Salman elevated Prince Mohammed, his 31-year-old son, Mr. Trump offered congratulations and celebrated the monarchy’s cooperation in rooting out terrorist financing and other issues.

Even more than Karen Handel, the Republican who won a hotly contested House seat in a special election in Georgia this week, Prince Mohammed was Mr. Trump’s anointed candidate — in this case, for the byzantine struggle to control the House of Saud.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The "itch", for Prince Mohammed, includes the continued genocide in Yemen, where Yemeni children are being massacred and maimed for life by Saudi bombings on a daily basis; with US military help, Saudi Arabia has closed the ports, so food cannot get in, and children are dying from malnutrition; and now, cholera has taken firm hold in Yemen, and there is no treatment for it.

Oh, and did I mention the use of depleted uranium weapons in Yemen, which is causing massive birth defects, and still births, in Yemeni children?!?

The "itch" also includes finding any which way to conjure up, and "sell" a war with Iran, Saudi Arabia's alleged "existential threat" in the region, which will most probably include war with Russia.

With "friends" like Prince Mohammed....the US government is looking at one hell of a lot more wars in the Middle East, much blood and money spent, and most likely, the reinstitution of the draft, both for our young men, and young women.

Health Ranger posts heavy metals test results for 364 more water samples from across America: Lead, Copper, Arsenic and Aluminum numbers

THANK YOU to all the Natural News readers and fans who submitted water samples to our lab for ICP-MS testing. Over the last year, we’ve processed over 600 water samples, and we’ve recently updated the 2017 numbers to include the most recent samples. Now, we have 364 water samples in 2017 alone, all tested for heavy metals like copper, arsenic and lead. We’ve also begun including aluminum results, given the very high level of interest in aluminum and its neurotoxicity.

You can view the 2017 water sample test results chart, sorted by zip code, at the following link at the Natural Science Journal:
