Currently in the United States, tap water contains more than 160 unregulated contaminates. Many of the chemicals are known to cause cancer, harm the brain and nervous system, alter growth and development, cause fertility issues, and hormone disruption. Even regulated chemicals, within the governments legal limits, often exceed what is known to be safe.
To learn what is in your tap water visit EWG’s Tap Water Database https://www.ewg.org/tapwater/. EWG is an independent group of researchers who are working to expose the chemicals in tap water and their health effects.
