How to filter PFOA and PFOS from your water

About six million people in 33 states are being poisoned by their tap water. The culprit is perfluorinated


Whole home filtration is the only method that will protect yours from PFOA and PFOS

compounds – perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA). Those chemicals are used to make Teflon and some plastics. These chemicals have been linked to obesity, cancer, hormone disruption, and high cholesterol levels. According to Xindi Hu, the lead researcher at Harvard where the problem was studied:

“For many years, chemicals with unknown toxicities, such as PFASs, were allowed to be used and released to the environment, and we now have to face the severe consequences.”

Filters that remove PFOA and PFOS

PFOA and PFOS are absorbable through the skin, so whole home filtration is required. Research on skin absorption suggests that dermal (skin) exposure to PFOA and PFOS may be a significant route of exposure that will affect the immune system. If you suffer from autoimmune problems, then you may be getting harmed from PFOA and PFOS in your water, and whole home filtration may result in improvements in your condition. Keep in mind, water softener systems do not filter PFOA and PFOS, you must use whole home filtration.

Where PFOA and PFOS contamination is found

The map on the right shows where PFOS and PFOA contamination has been found. For a more detailed map that lets you zoom in to see if your zip code is affected, visit the Environmental Working Group’s interactive PFOA/PFOS map. If you live in a zip code that is shown in red on the map, there is PFOA and/or PFOS in your water, and it’s time to take action especially if you have a sensitive or compromised immune system!
