For Folks that live in the city and don’t have goood well water here is what I suggest they should be doing for their drinking water as drinking plenty of good, clean water is important for a healthy body.
Bottled Water: Drink filtered tap water instead.
You can read the bottle label, but you still won’t know if the water is pure and natural, or just
processed, polluted, packaged tap water. EWG found 38 contaminants in 10 popular brands.
Tap Water: Learn what’s in it.
Tap water suppliers publish all their water quality tests. Bottled water companies don’t. Read
your annual tap water quality report. Get it tested.)
Filtered Tap Water: Drink it, cook with it.
• Choose a filter certified to remove contaminants found in your water:
Effectiveness varies – read the fine print.
• Carbon filters (pitcher or tap-mounted) are affordable and reduce many common water contaminants, like lead
and byproducts of the disinfection process used to treat municipal tap water.
• Install a reverse osmosis filter if you can afford it, to remove contaminants that carbon filters can’t eliminate, like
arsenic and perchlorate (rocket fuel).
Filters: Change them.
Change your water filters on time. Old filters aren’t safe – they harbor bacteria and let contaminants through.
On the Go: Carry water in safe containers.
Hard plastic bottles (#7 plastic) can leach a harmful plastics chemical called bisphenol A (BPA) into water. Carry stain-
less steel or other BPA-free bottles. Don’t reuse bottled water bottles. The plastic can harbor bacteria
and break down to release plastics chemicals.
While Pregnant: Stay hydrated with safe water.
It’s especially important for women to drink plenty of water during pregnancy. Follow all the tips
Infants: Use safe water for formula.
Use filtered tap water for your baby’s formula. If your water is not fluoridated, you can use a
carbon filter. If it is, use a reverse osmosis filter to remove the fluoride, because fluoridated water
can damage an infant’s developing teeth. If you choose bottled water for your infant, make sure it’s
Breathe Easy: Use a whole house water filter.
For extra protection, a whole house carbon filter will remove contaminants from steamy vapors you
and your family inhale while showering and washing dishes.
Now if none of these strike your fancy, find a nice home in the country with a good drilled well and move there. Simple as that. It’s all boils down too you and how important you think your health is worth.
But isn’t it a shame, that what once was a world of fresh clean water provided by good old Mother Nature, now for most parts is unsafe to drink, thanks to humans messing things up.
