Unregulated Chemicals in Drinking Water Is Not Good

Most of us know that our drinking water is filled with unregulated chemicals and filter it before drinking it if at all”–Paul Ebeling

Federal scientists analyzed the water in 25 U.S. water facilities. In nine of the facilities, they found traces of 21 chemicals in the water.  Of those 21 there were 18 unregulated chemicals which included solvents, herbicides, caffeine, metal, and antidepressants in the water according to Scientific American. 

The perfluorinated compounds are linked to cancers, colitis, thyroid disease.

The perfluorinated compounds found in drinking water have been found in the blood of nearly all people in the US.  Scientists say there is a “probable link” between PFOA in drinking water and high cholesterol, ulcerative colitis, thyroid disease, testicular cancer, kidney cancer, and pregnancy-induced hypertension. This based on findings on people in Mid-Ohio Valley communities whose water was polluted with PFOA from a DuPont plant.

What is happening to our water is not new.  Between Ys 2004 and 2009 The Environmental Working Group conducted nearly 20-M drinking water tests by water suppliers nationwide.   They found hundreds of pollutants in US tap water.  The problem is that the government has not set safety-based legal limits and many other chemicals were found in drinking water above government advisory health guidelines.

Water treatment is expensive: “Activated carbon, ozone, and ultraviolet treatments are generally better at removal than traditional chlorine treatment, but they are expensive. People resent having to pay anything for water. There’s the thought that there’s a God-given right to have as much as we want but, if you want the cleanest water, these techniques take money.” says EPA research chemist Susan Glassmeyer.

If you find filtered water too boring, flavor it with lemon juice, or crushed mint. I drink HHHO water, I drink 10ACITY from Penta5 USA.
