What's In Your Water?
Drinking water is not created equal, and the quality of the water you are willing to drink depends on where you live. Water is vital for life, but not all humans on this planet have access to clean filtered, safe water.
Americans use about 300 gallons of water per day per home according to the EPA, and our increased consumption of bottled water means we dispose of 1500 plastic water bottles per second. Less than 10% are recycled. However, 29% of the worlds population does not have access to safe running water on premises, and 12.9% of the worlds population does not have access to basic drinking water.
What makes our water in America different to other countries? In developed countries, governments and cities set up Water Treatment facilities to clean the water and ensure it is safe to drink. Safe means that it is free from bacteria that can cause epidemic diseases such as cholera, e-coli, typhoid, hepatitis A and dysentery. As you will agree, we definitely need our water cleaned from these epidemics. Contaminated drinking water is estimated to cause 502 000 diarrheal deaths each year.
However over the years research has shown some concern with the chemicals used to clean the water and make it “safe” to drink from these dangerous bacteria. Most commonly Chlorine and now ammonia, which combined produce chloramines, to clean the water. Chloramines are far more toxic and have been shown to increase the risk of health issues including cancer, birth defects, and autoimmune disorders. During certain times of the year municipalities increase the amount of Chlorine and Ammonia to flush the systems and clean the pipes also, meaning we drink higher amounts of these chemicals during this time.
Other contaminants can be found commonly in tap water, including lead or copper that are picked up in the underground pipes in your area, pesticides that are washed into the drinking water system from farm lands and private gardens, as well as pharmaceuticals, which are shown to be increasingly common in drinking water. Studies show that as we increase our use of prescription antibiotics, birth control and pain killers, that these are finding their way back into our drinking water systems and are not fully removed during the treatment processes.
This is why it is so important to take extra steps to protect your family and yourself by also filtering and purifying the tap water in your home before you drink it, to ensure you are drinking the cleanest water possible. Water which has been filtered, purification and RE-mineralized, you can be sure of the quality of your in-home or in-office water. You also never need to worry again about boil water advisories or other scares by knowing your water is safe and healthy.
