Poison in the water

According to a recent article the New York Times you may want to think twice about drinking water from the tap.

“Only 91 contaminants are regulated by the Safe Drinking Water Act, yet more than 60,000 chemicals are used within the United States… hundreds associated with a risk of cancer and other diseases at small concentrations in drinking water.”

Some of them are arsenic, chromium (movie: Erin Brockovich), perc and uranium. To see if you live in a higher risk area click here.

So what to do? Don’t contribute to landfills by buying bottled water every day. Instead, buy filtered water from the grocery in refillable containers for all of your potable needs.
