Can You Guess the #1 Contaminant in Tap Water?

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! Lemon Drink 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.
This may not seem like a big deal to you but this is a growing concern that has even caught the attention of the Canadian Government! The concentrations in your drinking water are low but it is the mixture of all these drugs and chemicals that is the cause for concern Scientists have even proven the drugs are creating "intersex" fish, with males developing eggs in their testes!!! So, what can you do? Only drink purified water! This could mean getting an under the counter water filtration system, getting spring water delivered to your house or even going to a spring every few weeks yourself and filling up! Where there is a will there is a way. Check out to find a spring near you! Keep in mind that not only are we drinking this water but we are also bathing in it and cooking with it! Our skin is the largest elimination organ and is very permeable. We are especially vulnerable in the shower because the heat opens up the pores of the skin and allows toxins to come in. I highly recommend getting a shower head filter to protect you and your family.
