Your tap water is what I call a “Triple Toxin Threat.” You could be inhaling the chloramine disinfectant gas from shower steam, absorbing multiple chemicals into your skin, and ingesting multiple pollutants when you drink or cook.
The Presidents Cancer Panel report recommended that installing drinking and shower water filters could be one of the most important things you can do to protect yourself from developing cancer.
What are common sources of city water pollutants?
- Pesticide runoff
- Pharmaceutical residues
- City utility disinfectants like chloramine
- Lead found in plumbing
What about bottled water?
Ditch the single-packaged plastic bottled waters. Who needs that expense or the added chemicals every day? Most bottled water is no better than bottled tap water. Plastics are made up of hundreds of chemicals that leach and BPA has been replaced with even more problematic substitutes that cause endocrine disruption and obesity.
Go for what is smart for your body and pocketbook. You can filter your own water, and store in a glass water bottle with silicone sleeve when you’re on-the-go.
Ensuring you have pure bathing, cooking, and drinking water is my goal. I assess your local contaminants and find the best filters to get rid of them, and discuss why it’s important to remineralize your filtered drinking water.
