If you're like me, you probably think that you do not need a home water purifier and filter. I used to think that. Then I started doing some research into the quality of the water I was drinking (both tap and bottled water). Believe me, I changed my mind fast!
It's completely shocking what's actually in our water supply!
Let me tell you a little of what I found out.
There's quite a bit more in our water than just good old "H2O"!
Some of what's in our water near the water itself, is good for us. A lot of it is very, very bad for us.
We live in a world that's made possible by over 80,000 synthetic chemical compounds. Where do these powerful chemicals go once they're used? That's right! Into your water supply.
The food we grow is made possible by pesticides. Our longevity and quality of life is made possible by prescription drugs. High-tech devices like our computers are made possible by a whole host of very toxic chemicals, like silicon.
The problem is, these chemicals end up in our water supply and we end up ingesting them! Would you go down into your basement or out to your garage, pick up that bottle of pesticide, and squirt it into your mouth? I do not think so!
Chances are you're doing just that when you drink tap water from the water supply of virtually any American city!
A study of 29 American cities was done recently that found out these cities' water supplies all had passages of at least one pesticide in them. Many of them had two, three, or more!
The same thing is true for prescription drugs. Traces of a number of high-powered prescription drugs are routinely found in our water supplies. Some scientists think that the growth of drug-resistant strains of bacteria can be linked to the fact that we're all immune to the effects of antibiotics. A world where antibiotics do not work would be scary, indeed!
At this point, I bet you're thinking just what I did – if tap water is so bad, then I'll just stick to bottled water.
Sounds like a great idea. Unfortunately, there's less restriction on the impurities allowed in bottled water than there is in tap water.
Bottled water companies spend billions each year trying to convince us that their water comes from some deep, pure underground aquifer, when it actually comes straight out of the tap – just like your water at home!
What's more, if the bottled water you drink has not been transported across state lines, there are absolutely no federal regulations that cover it – none!
So what's the answer?
There's just one answer – home water purifiers and filters. To protect your health and the health of your family, you absolutely have to start filtering your water at home.
