Millions of Americans have been ingesting drinking water toxins for years, not because they are safe, but because there are among 6,000 toxins the EPA is not regulating in municipal drinking water systems.
Chemical advances meant for higher production and lower costs of everyday products have exposed our water supply to more toxins than ever before. According to a USA Today article published September 19, 2019, “New study says even ‘safe’ drinking water poses a risk.”
“The vast majority of community water systems meet legal standards. Yet the latest research shows that contaminants present in the water at those concentrations – perfectly legal – can still harm human health.” said Olga Naidenko, the vice president for science investigations at EWG, an environmental advocacy group.
Water makes up about 60% of the adult body. Every living cell needs water to function. Water acts as a lubricant for our joints, helps regulate our body temperature, and aids in flushing waste. Our lungs, skin, digestive tract, liver, and kidneys filter toxins from our body. But they are not capable of removing many of the complex industrial toxins created today. For this reason, we must understand the makeup of the water we consume and bathe in daily. We all need to consume lots of water daily to keep our bodies functioning properly . . . lots of clean healthy water.
The Zero Multi-Stage RO Countertop water filter is a smart start to taking control of your health. This state-of-the-art filter will improve the quality of the water from wells and municipal water supplies.
Bottled water is costly, nearly 10 times as much as the water you get from our superior ERO System, when calculated on an annual basis. More importantly, bottled water is not as healthy as we might think. According to a Time.com article (https://time.com/5581326/plastic-particles-in-bottled-water/) published in May of 2019, “Plastic contamination is rampant in bottled water.” That was the unsettling conclusion of a study published last year in Frontiers in Chemistry that analyzed samples taken from 259 bottled water brands sold in several countries and found that 93% of them contained “microplastic” synthetic polymer particles.
Sherri Mason, author and sustainability researcher at Penn State Erie, the Behrend College, mentioned in a report that of 11 of bottled water brands tested are among the most popular and widely available in the U.S. Samples from the brands tested varied in plastic concentrations, and the average across brands was 325 microplastic particles per liter of bottled water, researchers found. Nestlé Pure Life had the largest average concentration of plastic particles out of all the brands tested; one sample from the brand was found to contain more than 10,000 microplastic particles per liter.
