An Inconvenient Truth About Ingredients in Tap Water
by Guest on Oct 23, 2010
There has been a lot of talk over the last few decades about the rise of harmful ingredients in tap water. Despite all of the recent reports on the growing number of contaminants in our water supply many people have failed to take the warnings that their health was at risk very seriously. They seem to believe the propaganda that the regulatory agencies are feeding them.
The fact is that while both the EPA and the water treatment facilities both insist that the water in our reservoirs is safe for us to drink outside testing concludes otherwise. How would anyone ever imagine that our drinking water was safe when there are 2,100 carcinogenic chemicals that have been found to be present?
Many people both in the medical and scientific worlds believe that these carcinogenic ingredients in tap water are primarily responsible for the substantial rise in recorded cancer cases over the last one hundred years. Not coincidently it was exactly one hundred years ago that we began the practice of adding chlorine to our water supply.
Chlorination is actually the primary suspect in the rise in the cancer rate. Unfortunately, it is a necessary evil if we are to be able to stave off the waterborne diseases that take so many lives in places where chlorination is not practiced. Now all we need is protection from our protection.
What we all need to do if we are to keep ourselves safe from all of these dangerous ingredients in tap water is to purchase and install our own personal home water purification systems. We can no longer depend on the protection that the water treatment facilities provide us.
The equipment at the treatment facilities were never intended to be used to block the sort of contaminants that they are forced to face today. They were primarily designed to demineralize your drinking water, not to purify it. There would have to be major adjustments made in the machinery in order for them to be able to make your water truly pure.
In order to guarantee that your family is thoroughly protected from all of the harmful ingredients in tap water you would need to obtain a purification system that utilized four distinct filters which would enable the system to effectively be able to block 99% of everything coming in.
Your system will need to feature an activated granular carbon filter in conjunction with a multi media block in order to successfully remove the wide range of chemicals that are flowing in. In addition to that you will need to have both a sub micron filter, and an ion exchange filter for the removal of biological contaminants and toxic heavy metals.
You have got to recognize the fact that your family needs serious protection from the harmful ingredients in tap water, and you cannot continue to put their health in jeopardy. Therefore it is absolutely imperative that you purchase and install a home water purification system as soon as possible, because you may someday regret it if you don’t.
