According to the Environmental Working Group‘s 2013 Tap Water Report, 201 water systems that serve 100 million Americans in 43 states are polluted with toxic chemicals created by the reaction of chlorine and rotting organic matter such as leaves, insects, farm and yard runoff and sewage. Makes you want to go get a drink right? The report documents that it’s scary but true that for many communities across the United States, there are carcinogens in our tap water.
I have always believed that to know better is to do better so hopefully your having this information and sharing it will help us all do better and be healthier The good news is the EWG just released their new Water Filter Buying Guide to help us remove toxins and other chemicals that may be hazardous to our health. Here is a link to the report. http://www.ewg.org/research/water-treatment-contaminants
This is certainly not the first time I have referenced the great work of the Environmental Working Group. Their commitment to a healthier, more sustainable planet is second to none. They are green from the inside out in every way & we are working to get their leader, Ken Cook, for an interview on our radio show. We will keep you posted.
Here’s to your health & making great green choices every chance you can.
