A recent article by Zoe Schlanger gives an in-depth analysis of what is legally safe but is not risk-free from 28 million water records from 50,000 American water utilities.
Most all of these have dozens of contaminants in your drinking water. All are considered safe by the EPA but research has shown they pose a risk to human health.
HUNDREDS OF POLLUTANTS IN THE DRINKING WATER
Oddly enough there are hundreds of other pollutants in your drinking water that the EPA does not impose any requirements at all. They issue health guidelines which are unenforceable suggestions. That is they are recommended levels at which they deem the risk acceptable, not absent not even safe.
Even more shocking is the fact that thousands of water utilities drinking water is contaminated at levels that exceed those recommended levels.
The group that compiled the database is the “Environmental Working Group”. CLICK HERE TO LOOK UP YOUR DRINKING WATER. Every zip code has contamination of your drinking water!
This database found that 81% of the drinking water is contaminated with contaminants linked to cancer.
The only suggestion to HELP (no known filter can remove these contaminants) is the right kind of charcoal filter to lower the contaminants in your drinking water.
Now place this in context with the recent report of lowering of male fertility. Is there a link? Research has shown that pharmaceuticals-otc medications-vitamins in your drinking water neuter fish and wildlife or change their sex!
Is it not the time to stand up, be counted, and help with this problem?
