Open letter to everyone interested:
15 years ago I became allergic, which for periods has been a hell.
The doctor concluded after testing that I was over-sensible to birch,
asp and alder - and I went every winter through a desensibilation
program with injections of pollen extracts.
During the worst allergy season in spring I also had to use
But for a years I generally suspected other things to be the main reason
for the increase of allergy problems - in many urban societies. Among
things I suspected were substances in the food.
This spring I have tested myself more thoroughly and has done the
following, terrible conclusion:
It is the drinking water!
When I only drink water I buy on bottles (spring water), even for
cooking coffee, and use no water from the tap, every trace of my allergy
problem is gone!
What's the main culprit I don't know, but one may suspect some chemicals
used by the water treatment plants.
If these chemicals may reach milk or other foodstufs I don't know.
If also asthmatics may be helped by avoiding tap water I don't know, but
it should be worth a try!
Best regards - with more vitality

This far I have got 3 comments:
That allergies to flouride and other chemicals used to treat public
drinking water occure is well documented. Also, I'm not familar with
how they process drinking water in Norway, so I don't know what they
might be putting in it.

An even more common reason would surely be chlorine?
