A Guide to Home Water Purifiers and Filters
If you're like me, you probably think that you don't need a home water purifier and filter. I used to think
that. Then I started doing some research into the quality of the water I was drinking (both tap and
bottled water). Believe me, I changed my mind fast!
It's completely shocking what's actually in our water supply!
Let me tell you a little of what I found out.
There's quite a bit more in our water than just good old "H2O"!
Some of what's in our water besides the water itself, is good for us. A lot of it is very, very bad for us.
We live in a world that's made possible by over 80,000 synthetic chemical compounds. Where do these
powerful chemicals go once they're used? That's right! Into your water supply.
The food we grow is made possible by pesticides. Our longevity and quality of life is made possible by
prescription drugs. High-tech devices like our computers are made possible by a whole host of very
toxic chemicals, like silicon.
The problem is, these chemicals end up in our water supply and we end up ingesting them! Would you
go down into your basement or out to your garage, pick up that bottle of pesticide, and squirt it into
your mouth? I don't think so!
Chances are you're doing just that when you drink tap water from the water supply of virtually any
A study of 29 American cities was done recently that found out these cities' water supplies all had
traces of at least one pesticide in them. Many of them had two, three, or more!
The same thing is true for prescription drugs. Traces of a number of high-powered prescription drugs
are routinely found in our water supplies. Some scientists think that the growth of drug-resistant strains
of bacteria can be linked to the fact that we're all becoming immune to the effects of antibiotics. A
world where antibiotics don't work would be scary, indeed!
At this point, I bet you're thinking just what I did--if tap water is so bad, then I'll just stick to bottled
Sounds like a great idea.
