What'S Inside Our Tap Water And Why You Need A Filtration System

Author: Ray Hamilton

Let's face it, we have all heard the contamination scares and reports of outbreaks, but do you realize just what's inside our tap water and how potentially dangerous it can be?

We live in a highly industrialized world where everything we use, put down our drains and onto the fields will all eventually find its way into the water supply.

 So what's inside our tap water is a mixture of pesticides, pharmaceuticals, chlorine: over 2000 toxic chemicals to be exact, according to a recent study.

The new phenomenon of prescription drugs is perhaps the most frightening as our treatment plants are not equipped for this and the amount is increasing year on year as we all take out more prescriptions and use more medications.

It is a sad state of affairs when we and our kids have to drink other people's medications and the main disinfection agent the municipals use is chlorine, one of the most toxic substances of all. Did you know that you have a 93% increased chance of getting cancer by drinking unfiltered chlorinated water?

Millions of Americans are regularly exposed to one or more pesticides in a glass of water, and it has been estimated that poor water is largely responsible for a large proportion of the cancer deaths each year in the US.

Fish have started to change sex in our rivers as the levels of drugs rise and even some men have started to grow man breasts due to the levels of female hormones in our contaminated supply.

So now you know what's inside our tap water, what to do? It is vital these days to have some kind of home filtration, and the US EPA recommends using a carbon block type filter to be the most effective. Look for a multi stage one that also incorporates an ion exchange to remove over 99% of the contaminants.

Don't settle for anything less, check the supplier's performance data sheet to see exactly what it removes.

If we want to lower our risk of getting cancer and other diseases significantly, to look and feel healthier and have increased energy, home filtration is a must.

I hope, now you know just what's inside our tap water, you will make it a point to help protect you and your family's health.
