New public disclosures about known carcinogens in our drinking water are deemed so critical that the EPA was forced to rewrite regulations for every single community across the nation, effective in 2006.

"The Cancer Link" is the book that pops the balloon of consumer perception on water, whether it is from the tap or the bottle, and more importantly, what's in it.

"Having worked for twenty-five years in the environmental cleanup industry with asbestos, hazardous waste, and underground storage tank contamination, I have never been as frightened by any other health effects on the world population as those portrayed in this book. Every-body should be reading this book," said Dennis L. Mast, founder of HydroFlo Water Treatment, Inc. (HYRF:PK)

Brett Swailes, writer for The Tri County Record, has recently published his new book, "The Cancer Link," (Alpaca Publish-ing Group). He hopes to spill the beans on the link between cancer and common contaminants found in U.S. drinking water.

The Cancer Link is written with an engaging tone that never neglects the seriousness of the nationwide dilemma. It is full of independent resources, and is carefully researched and referenced in MLA format. The Cancer Link helps readers decide how to protect themselves from the one cancer threat they likely have not considered: the water they drink.

The Environmental Protec-tion Agency rewrote the nationwide regulations for tap water in 2001. Those laws just went into effect in January of this year. "Municipalities countrywide have been forced to pony up big money for very costly technologies they never knew existed," said Swailes, in an interview for the Tri County Rec-ord.

"Civic groups and voters have questions, politicians are vexed, and each year, like clockwork, another 1.5 million newly diagnosed cancer patients wonder what happened. This book off-ers answers, many re-sources, and cost-effective solutions from medical experts and resear-chers."

"The Cancer Link" tells a story of the mass-poisonings in countries such as Bangladesh, India, Taiwan, China, and now the United States. The author makes a strong case for water contaminants as the central elements in the greatest environmental catastrophe in world history.

This book goes on to reveal a story that started with cancer outbreaks from arsenic in the soot encountered by chimney sweeps in England during the 1700s, continues up through Rachel Carson's 1962 book "Silent Spring" that recounts how arsenic was used in crop sprays, in orchards, and worst of all on tobacco fields. There are many medical references throu-ghout.

The book offers some suggestions for readers, such as how to better protect against various cancers, diabetes, and vascular diseases. In this work the author reveals what the EPA, the World Health Organization, and the world's most eminent scientists already know and how it can be addressed, along with recommendations for effective governmental action. Very practical and inexpensive solutions are presented.

The book is available online at, and at, and can also be found locally at The Windmill Restaurant and Masthof Books, in Morgantown. The author is available for speaking engagements by calling the publisher at: 610-286-3735.
