If you are like most of us, you are careful about the quality of the food you eat, concerned about the quality of TV that your children watch and want a healthy lifestyle for your family. And you’ve probably heard you need to drink more water!
If you still drink tap water – even if you drink bottled water – you may be exposing your family to any number of dangerous substances hidden in your water.
In the City:
Did you know that our public water systems only test for a limited number of dangerous chemicals? It is true — most water systems just measure levels for the ones that the EPA mandates.
Did you realize that you could be buying basic tap water in a bottled form at the grocery store? There are no guidelines to require bottlers to tell you what you are buying!
In the Country:
If you live on a farm or in a farming community and get your water from a well, your water may need to be treated for farm chemicals that leach into the water, as well as problems that come from the soil and other challenges depending on the local water table and supply.
