While we are fortunate to have running water and don’t need to be worried about getting diarrhea like when we travel, we have our own water problems in North America! Common contaminants in Tap Water Include:
- toilet paper residue (yes, you are reading this right!)
- heavy metals such as lead, cadmium and arsenic
- pesticide run off
- petro chemicals
- residues of pharmaceutical medications such as birth control, anti-depressants, etc.
