Did you know that drinking tap water increases the heavy metals in your body? According to the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC), most tap water in the USA contains containments such as bacteria, pesticides and other chemicals. The cause? Pollution in our lakes and streams, as well as, aging plumbing, dating back to the pre-war era are to blame. When the pipes corrode, metal and chemicals end up in the tap water we consume at home, at work and in restaraunts. The primary metal and chemical contaminants include lead, arsenic, percolate and chlorine by products.
We as a country need to aggressively seek out higher standards to protect our water supply from carcinogens and toxic waste. We need to demand higher standards for drinking water.
You can avoid some of these foreseen dangers, by filtering your water, before you drink it. Sure, you can drink “fresh” water out of a plastic bottle, but is it really fresh, after the plastic leaches into it?
The NRDC warns that those with compromised immune systems, the elderly, the young, (especially infants), and pregnant women need to be particularly careful of the quality of the water they consume in order to remain free of illness that can be acquired through drinking contaminant laden water.
Consider purchasing a filtering system today!
