microplastics-in-bottled-and-tap-water

Are you drinking bottled water to avoid the pollutants in tap water? If so, here’s some bad news: Bottled water and tap water have both been found to have microplastic contamination. In fact, bottled water is worse than tap water when it comes to microplastic contamination. The World Health Organization calls microplastic contamination a “growing concern” and promises to study its health effects. Currently, the health effects on humans of microplastics in water are largely unknown. Research on fish has shown that consuming microplastic particles makes young fish slower and stupid.   What is Microplastics contamination? Microplastics... Read More »

Over 80% of US Tap Water Supplies are Carcinogenic, is yours? Nearly all US tap water supplies are unsafe: That’s the conclusion of a blockbuster report by the Is your water supply carcinogenic? Chances are 4 in 5 that the answer is yes Environmental Working Group (EWG). Over 80% of US tap water supplies have unsafe levels of carcinogens and other harmful chemicals. The EPA knows about many of these chemicals in US tap water supplies and has chosen to do nothing about it. The good news is: The EWG has provided an online searchable database that enables you to find out if your water is affected, so you can take action to protect yourself and... Read More »

The most Toxic Chemical found in California Drinking Water and Why? 25 years ago, the state of California determined that 1,2,3 Trichloropropane (TCP) in California drinking The most toxic chemical in california drinking water, 1,2.3 TCP causes cancer – even in tiny amounts water causes cancer – and did nothing about it. Now, 25 years later, and probably after people have died from it…finally, the state has decided to regulate 1,2,3 TCP. The maximum safe level is going to be set at 5 parts per trillion. The maximum safe level is set that low because 1,2,3 TCP is a potent carcinogen. It causes cancer, even in tiny amounts. If... Read More »

Nearly a quarter of the US population are being served toxic tap water by their local water utility, according to a recently published study by the Natural Resources Defense Council. The contaminants found in the study include carcinogens like hexavalent chromium six, neurotoxins like lead and arsenic, and even nitrates that can be lethal to infants. Worse yet, many of these toxins are going unreported, so the affected people don’t even know that they are being poisoned! If all that wasn’t bad enough; these problems are expected to get worse, and the EPA will do nothing to stop it. A one-two punch: Decaying infrastructure and lax enforcement So... Read More »

Flint Michigan isn’t alone in suffering from toxic tap water, Chicago has it’s share of lead-tainted water as Chicago has toxic tap water thanks to lead, PFOA/PFOS and hexavalent chromium six well. Plus, in Chicago, just like Flint, the city and state has been trying to hide it’s toxic tap water from city residents. In what can only be called an act of depraved indifference, Chicago has been hiding the fact that very high levels of lead have been found in that city’s’ tap water. Compounding this problem is that toxic levels of Perfluoroalkyls, (PFOA and PFOS) have also been found in Chicago’s tap water. Americans need to wake... Read More »

Many people believe that their water supply is safe because the EPA has rules to protect them from any toxic Whole home filtration is your only defense against PFOA and PFOS chemicals that may be found in water supplies. But research conducted by the EPA itself proves that assumption is wrong – dangerously wrong. According to the EPA, dangerous levels of two unregulated and highly toxic chemicals, poly- and perfluoroalkyl compounds (PFOA and PFAS) have been detected in the drinking water supplies of millions of American homes. Worse yet, PFOA and PFAS exposure have been linked to high cholesterol and obesity, both of which are widespread... Read More »

The Clean Water Act is an EPA rule that protects the quality of many sources of water that ultimately supply Whole home filtration protects you from toxic chemicals in your water wells and municipal water utilities. Unfortunately, the Clean Water Act is going to be scrapped. There are also large cuts in Federal spending on the way that will limit your local water utilities ability to filter out those toxins. Those cuts will make an already bad situation worse: Water infrastructure all across the country is crumbling due to neglect, and many cities’ water systems are already woefully inadequate to deal with pollution problems that are getting... Read More »

According to the Environmental Working Group (EWG), potentially dangerous levels of Chromium 6 has Chromium 6 is in your water – and its a silent killer been found in the tap water of over 200 million Americans. Most of the contaminated tap water is found in cities, so if you live near a city, your water is most likely contaminated. Research conducted by the Environmental Working Group suggests that at current levels of contamination, roughly 12,000 people will get cancer from drinking the tainted water. But even that may underestimate the risk: Chromium 6 is absorbed through the skin, and through the lungs when inhaled as a vapor in the... Read More »
