Real People Are Getting Sick Drinking Tap Water
Most people assume that water coming out of their tap is safe to drink. But that may not be the case. Water pipes in this country, especially the ones beneath cities, are old and corroding. According to Clean Water Action, these pipes may be carrying dangerous and drug resistant bacteria.
How concerned should you be about this bacteria? It turns out you should be very concerned. The bacteria that has been discovered in these pipes are Legionella, mycobacteria, and pseudomonas. Furthermore, an analysis of 100 million Medicare records from 1991 to 2006 found that more than 617,000 older Americans were hospitalized as a result of becoming infected with these three common bacteria.
That means that not only is the bacteria prevalent in our pipes, it could be the cause of over half a million Americans getting sick enough to be sent to the hospital!
How Our Water Treatment Facilities Fail
Municipal Water treatment facilities add chlorine to the water to kill bacteria. But when chlorinated water leaves the treatment plant, it may have to travel a long distance. During that trip, the chlorine content becomes depleted enough that it no longer kills bacteria. By the time the water reaches your home, there isn’t enough chlorine left to kill the bacteria and you get sick!
The other issue with corroding pipes is that when they corrode, they leach heavy metals into our water. These heavy metals, such as lead, are detrimental to our health. Heavy metals are carcinogens in our body and increase oxidative stress levels in our cells, making us more susceptible to illness and adult onset disease.
How to Remove Dangerous Drug Resistant Bacteria From Your Tap Water
It is more important now than ever to get a quality water filtration system in your home that will remove the bacteria and the heavy metals from your drinking water. The water filtration system in an EOS water ionizer is a 16 stage filtration system that will remove 99.99 percent of the contaminants in your water. That includes virtually all of the bacteria and heavy metals!
But an EOS water ionizer doesn’t stop with just an ultra-advanced filtration system. The next stage is water electrolysis, which restores the antioxidants to your drinking water. Any water that is treated in a municipal water treatment facility, or is bottled and sold in your stores, doesn’t have any antioxidants in it.
These antioxidants, known as hydroxyl ions, fizzle out of water just like carbonation fizzles out of a soda. After three or four days of being removed from its natural source, the antioxidant in water will be all fizzled away. By the time you drink it, there won’t be any antioxidants left!
So why take chances with your drinking water? If you continue to drink water from your tap, you are exposing yourself to potentially dangerous levels of bacteria and heavy metals that could result in you go into the hospital just like 617,000 Americans have gone so far.
Don’t take the risk drinking drug resistant bacteria in tap water! Get an advanced EOS water ionizer filtration system to protect you and your family today!
To your health!
