Serious US Water Quality Problems
In our last article, we covered a study showing that chromium-6 is a prevalent, cancer causing chemical found in US water supplies across the US. But the problems don’t stop there. In a 2016 study, Harvard University found unsafe levels of polyfluoroalkyl and perfluoroalkyl, industrial chemicals linked with cancer, hormone disruption and other health problems! The US water quality problems continue to compound because water quality laws have remained virtually unchanged in 40 years. It is critical that every American address these water quality issues at home with a premium EOS water ionizer.
The Harvard study found high levels of polyfluoroalkyl and perfluoroalkyls in 33 States, affecting more than 6 million Americans.
Resistance to Clean Water Act
Did you know that the Safe Drinking Water Act from the 70’s covers 91 contaminants, but there are literally tens of thousands of chemicals that are used in US drinking water? 8000 of these are monitored by the EPA, but the list of chemicals hasn’t been updated since the year 2000!
This is a big problem because industrial farming has grown more prevalent in the last 40 years, so the risk of fertilizer and animal waste getting into our water supply has gone up exponentially.
The EPA is very aware of this and in 2010 they imposed stricter limits on for cancer-causing chemicals in water, which is good. But that doesn’t even begin to address the thousands of other chemicals. The EPA wants to evaluate and regulate chemicals by groups instead of one by one, and they want to expand the Clean Water Act to keep American rivers and streams clean to improve drinking water. But the EPA is facing all kinds of political resistance to this. Judges are even stopping the enforcement of the act in certain states as this pressure mounts from conservative groups.
Most US water systems are fed by groundwater, which is usually cleaner than surface water since it’s filtered by soil and rocks, but big cities tend to rely on rivers and lakes, which are susceptible to higher levels of contaminants. If you live in or near a big city, you should be especially concerned.
Treating US Drinking Water at Home
The bottom line is your drinking water is not safe. In many places in the US, there hasn’t been any real and substantial improvements in treating drinking water in 40 years. Some of these chemicals are so new that their effects are not yet known and the side effects may not show up in people for years.
It is incumbent upon every American to take these US water quality problems very seriously in order to protect themselves and their families from these thousands of untreated chemicals. The best way to do this is to get an EOS water ionizer, which uses a 16 stage filtration system with ion exchange resin to remove all of the chromium-6, heavy metals, polyfluoroalkyl and perfluoroalkyls, chlorine, fluoride, chloramine, left over pharmaceutical drugs, and every other nasty contaminant in US drinking water.
But the best part of an EOS water ionizer is that it then uses water electrolysis to restore the natural antioxidant in water, making alkaline ionized water the healthiest water you can drink, as natural as the Fountain of Youth in Lourdes, France.
Take on US water quality problems right in your on home and be the first line of defense for you and your family. Get a premium EOS water ionizer and you can sleep soundly at night.
To your health!
