Tap Water, How Toxic Can it Be?

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.

How can you avoid consuming chemicals in your tap water? There are many water filters on the market. However, the ease of use and the amount of contaminates each filter removes varies.
