How Filthy Is YOUR Tap Water (You Won’t Believe It!)
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
Sure, our tap water looks clean – and we’re supposed to have all these laws and regulations to keep it that way, right?
But there’s an ugly secret that you’ll NEVER hear about from Uncle Sam.
The Feds are doing a TERRIBLE job ensuring the safety of your tap water… and they know it.
The 1972 Clean Water Act only sets standards and testing requirements for 114 different contaminants.
Guess how many contaminants are commonly found in our municipal water treatment facilities?
Thousands…. and some of them are a serious threat to your health.
Fortunately, taking a couple simple steps can go a long way toward keeping you and your family safe.
Typical tap water is literally teeming with thousands of industrial chemicals, farm chemicals, heavy metals, household cleaners, and pharmaceutical drugs.
The drugs are the most frightening because of their source: They come from people’s urine.
Yes, your water LOOKS clean, but it is not.
If you have read anything about water quality, it’s clear that you cannot drink the water out of your tap. But grabbing a water bottle isn’t the right solution, either.
There are almost no regulations regarding the quality of water put in those bottles.
Bottling companies do not even have to follow the same regulations as your local water municipality.
Actually, bottled water is sometimes worse because chemicals leach from the plastic bottles into the water you are drinking.
Tap water with extra chemicals – that is your bottled water.
What can you do about it?
A wise old doctor once told me: “Either use a filter or you are the filter.”
Personally, I don’t want to be the filter for all those chemicals (and drugs).
The only way to ensure you have clean water is to filter it at your home.
Even if your municipal water authority swears your water is safe, they’re just testing it at the plant.
It still has miles to travel in pipes before it gets to your home.
Who knows what it runs into along the way?
You can’t control what happens to the water before it gets to your house, but you can control what happens after.
If you want to make sure you have clean drinking water, you must use a good filter.
Whole-house filters can treat all the water that enters your home, but they can be a little pricey.
At a minimum, you want a quality filter on the main faucets you use for drinking water. Look for filters that have been certified by third-party labs like NSF.
The added bonus of using an in-house filter is that the water tastes great!
Choose a good quality filter… and stop being a filter.
Health and Happiness,
