Filtering Water, Why its So Important

Posted by on

Clear water doesn’t mean its clean…yes, that’s right. So many of us contribute our visual appearance of water to its quality. However, there is much more than what is seen by the naked eye.

Every year over 2 billion pounds of pesticides are used in the United States Agriculture. Many of these chemicals leach into our clean water supply. Many areas of the United States now face groundwater pollution ridden with these toxic pesticides.

In 2010 the EPA showed that 35 different US Water municipals have chromium-6 present . This is a highly toxic chemical. If you saw the movie Erin Brockovich this is the same chemical she was investigating causing cancers in the area contaminated with this chemical (and yes this movie was based on a true story)

In 2016 a Harvard study showed that in 33 of the 50 states have harmful PFASs in them. This chemical has been shown to be linked to cancer, birth defects, and hormone disruption.

These are just a few of the contaminants that are in our water that can cause long term health problems. Others include pharmaceutics, hormones, fluoride, heavy metals, toxic run-off and so much more.

It is very important for us to know what we are drinking. After all, water is one of the most essential items in our life. The human body is composed of around 60% water. Each day we need to replenish this vital substance. But we need to make sure it benefits us and is not full of these toxins.

This is why its so important to filter your water. Even a regular carbon filter will not take all of these toxins out of your water. Make sure you are using a system that has standards of that of Reverse Osmosis which will take all of these out.
