While water may look like it’s pure, simple, clean and ready to be consumed without a second thought, the fact is there are a whole lot of no-see-ums in that clear liquid that could cause a whole lot of grief.
We’re not just talking about tap water, although that is a good portion of the water we consume in America. We are also referring to bottled water. The home tap and the bottled water may contain chlorine, pesticides, herbicides, aluminum, lead, antibiotics, hormones and fecal coliforms. The story is that water contains much more than many people realize, and most of it is not good for human health.
The water on tap in the house is monitored by certain regulations that allow acceptable levels of contaminants to get a free ride in the life-giving liquid. And further regulations also state the water should not have other water-borne diseases such as cholera or typhoid fever. While this may be comforting to read about, it does not address the reality that humans and Mother Nature may pollute the water we are drinking.
Consider this as well. Even if the tap water and bottled water have what is classified as acceptable levels of certain contaminants, this may be acceptable to certain people whose immune systems are not compromised. If a different demographic is considered, such as pregnant women or AIDS patients, this is another matter entirely.
Our very safety is at stake and we need to address the issue with alacrity. The only way to make certain the at home water system offers the purest and freshest water possible is to consider a water distillation system and not just a filtration system. Filtration systems are often the source of contamination due to improperly cleaned filters.
Water distillers make tap water as pure as it can be, and there is no other method that is more effective at doing this. Sticking with a water distillation system will be the best household investment for now and the future.
