GE’s Newest Refrigerator Filter is First to Remove Trace Pharmaceuticals from Water and Ice*

TVNL Comment: What does it tell you about how badly humans have poisoned the planed when GE markets a filter to remove things like progesterone from drinking water? Progesterone! Progesterone is a female hormone used in hormone replacement therapy and it is in our drinking water. Do you want to know why 8 year old girls are developing breasts? Can this explain gender confusion cases or even the cause of some homosexuality? We drink this water...pregnant women drink this water...what is the effect on a fetus? We are being poisoned...and we just ignore it.


Think the cleanest, clearest, most contaminant-free water has to come from a bottle? Think again. GE offers the most advanced water filtration system in the industry as part of its recently launched French door refrigerators External link. The first-of-its-kind water filtration system has been tested and verified by an independent third party to remove 98 percent of five trace pharmaceuticals, including ibuprofen, atenolol, fluoxetine, progesterone and trimethoprim, from water and ice.

Among the reasons pharmaceuticals end up in our water supply is consumers flushing them down the toilet without realizing where they might end up. Or, if products are tossed in the trash, they often wind up in landfills, where they can seep into groundwater—and ultimately can come through water taps.
