~~~What are the chances my water is contaminated?

Today, there are very few people who are not aware of the problems
with our drinking water supply. The news carries reports each week
about yet another clean-up effort initiated on chemical spills,
improperly lined landfills, agricultural run-offs and toxic materials
which are rapidly leaching into our aquifers and contaminating our
water supplies faster than regulatory agencies can find the solutions.

Rain and melting snow carry pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers
into our streams, rivers, lakes and wells.

Nitrates from fertilizers used for agriculture and home lawn care can
contaminate a water supply.

Trichloroethylene and benzene, the most commonly found contaminants
surrounding hazardous waste sites, are both known to cause cancer.
Municipal water that is properly chlorinated kills most bacteria and
viruses; however, we now know that chlorine forms carcinogenic
compounds such as trihalomethanes and chloroforms when it mixes with
organic matter.

Even if municipal water was pure as it left the treatment facility,
it may have to travel through miles of pipe to reach your home...And
these pipes are guaranteed to be filthy.

Inside your home, lead and other heavy metals can be dissolving in
your water supply from piping, solder joints and brass fixtures.
Lead, when ingested, can cause severe neurological damage...
particularly in children. The EPA estimates that 38 million Americans
drink water that exceeds the 50 parts per billion, the "safe" level
for lead. And, who is to know if 50 ppb isn't too much.

This dismal picture leaves many of us wondering just how wisely we're
replacing this vital 70% of our own bodies every 5 to 10 days.

Clearly there is a demand for a safer choice!
