In rolling out the brand new Pristinet (http://www.pristinet.com/)
“The recent contamination of drinking water source for 300,000 residents near Charleston, West Virginia was from an accidental toxic chemical spill in the Elk River. It was the worst in US history. It exposed the weaknesses and gaps in regulation of contaminants.”
Pristinet offers an affordable way for consumers, home buyers, neighborhood associations, school PTAs and employers to test their respective drinking water sources for toxins that are linked to chronic illnesses of widespread concern. Mr. Henston said, “It took us a couple of years to get our arms around the alphabet soup of chemicals and the latest research on their health effects. It required a background in not only the chemistry but the whole ecosystem of government regulations and industry compliance.”
“We are not looking to assign blame in any measure, but we, as a nation, have collectively failed to protect the consumers, especially the most vulnerable segments – the pregnant women and the young children. Our service is a game changer. We are trying to help consumers take control and not rely on slow moving regulations that address just 115 or so of contaminants out of 80,000 possible chemicals registered for use by industry. It will take decades, if not centuries for regulations alone to do the job,” said Mr. Henston.
“We invite everyone, especially parents with young children, to visit Pristinet’s website (http://www.pristinet.com/
