Recent research has shown that tap water contains harmful chemicals. These chemicals pose a serious health risks and can even cause disease.
Water is the source of life. It is the most precious substance on earth. Since our bodies are over 80% water, the water we drink is very important to our body’s functioning. The problem is the tap water we drink could be doing more harm than good.Water has a long way to go before getting to our house and during that journey, it picks up contaminants. Water supply pipes have cracks, leaks, rust and joints. Toxic elements in the air we breathe get into rivers and lakes. As a result, they end up in our tap water. On top of that, chlorine, a noxious chemical, is added as an disinfectant.
Chlorine kills bacteria in water. However, chlorine is a dangerous chemical element that may cause a negative effect on people’s health. Some people don’t understand what hidden hazards chlorine may have. Chlorine can cause the irritation of your skin, eyes, the mucous membrane of your mouth and nose. Chlorine can damage the respiration system and cause allergic reactions.
Besides chlorine, fluoride, lead, benzene, bromate and other hazardous chemicals can be found in our tap water.
Fluoride is linked to Alzheimer’s disease. Excessive fluoride exposure may result in dysfunction of the thyroid gland and obesity. It can also be the cause of learning disabilities in children.
Lead is a particularly dangerous chemical. Pregnant women must avoid lead exposure to protect the health of their unborn babies. This toxic element is associated with premature birth, low birth weight and learning problems.
Benzene is known for its negative effect on red blood cells. It can cause a decrease in red blood cells. Benzene weakens the immune system and increases the risk of infections. It causes anemia and bone marrow disease.
