What Are You Doing About The Poison In Your Drinking Water-xhero

Nutrition Go ahead, sit down and drink a nice clear, pure glass of water. OK, now read this quote: "U.S. drinking water contains more than 2,100 toxic chemicals that can cause cancer." This is a quote from Ralph Nader of the Nader Research Group. Scarey, isn’t it? Unfortunately, only about 75 of these are tested by most city water officials. Let’s example just one of these sinister invaders, chlorine. So you buy an aquarium and some fish and you want to fill it with city faucet water. What is the first requirement? Yes, it is to de-chlorinate the water with tablets or by allowing the water to sit several days. If fish will die in chlorinated water, how can it be good for people? Yet, it is .mon in many cities for the maximum level of chlorine allowed in the public water system to be greater than what is re.mended in swimming pools! Let’s not give chlorine a bad rap. It is an excellent disinfectant, ridding water of bacteria such as dysentery, typhoid, and cholera. The problem is that chlorine damages the human body by producing THMs (trihalomethanes). These are cancer causing and damage cells. Chlorine also can score the internal walls of arteries, making it easier for cholesterol to attach itself. Mississippi River drinking water has been shown to contain 63 cancer causing substances made by chlorine’s reaction to pollutants in the water such as methanol and carbon disulphide. An increase in the cases of bladder, urinary tract, and kidney cancers have been reported following the infusion of extra chlorine to treat a city water system contamination. Drinking contaminated water is only one way chlorine enters the body. Even taking a shower can put a person at risk. The warm water causes the chlorine to evaporate, and the steam in the shower might contain as much as 20 times more chlorine than the tap water! This chloroform is a cause of bronchitis, asthma, and certain types of cancer. The open pores in the skin take in even more chlorine and cause skin irritations such as eczema. This is all shocking news to parents! After all, children’s bodies are much more susceptible to chemical changes as described above. What conscientious parents want to poison their child? So how can people be sure of giving themselves and their family safe water? A popular option is to purchase bottled water. The problem with this is that, unless you know the source, it could be an unwarranted trust. The fact is, there are no federal regulations concerning bottled water. A .pany may promise fresh spring water on the label, but pour tap water inside. Yes, to do so is not breaking the law, and it is being done today. So, obviously, pouring money into bottled water is not the answer. The only safe sure way to guarantee your family is getting chlorine free water is to filter it yourself. Start by purchasing a filter that promises to remove chlorine. Carbon filters do this. The small investment to filter your drinking and cooking water is well worth the peace of mind that will result.
