Pure water has become extinct. In fact, up to 500 different types of toxins can be found in our water supply at any given time.
Experts agree that no longer can you assume that your water is pollutant-free—regardless of the source.
According to biochemist, water specialist and health care practitioner Dr. Roy Speiser, who has devoted the past three decades of his career developing personal protection products geared toward safeguarding health, ”The public is being misled to believe that water is safe just because it meets government standards. Even if your local water report detects that the level of contaminants meets the government’s allowable concentration, consuming small amounts of heavy metals, chemicals and pharmaceuticals over years accumulates in our bodies and will make us sick.”
Water from a municipal water source or even private wells can be contaminated with parasites, chlorine, heavy metals, pharmaceuticals, birth control pills, gasoline additives, industrial discharge, jet fuel and even radioactivity.
Chlorine is especially worrisome because while it remains the government’s preferred disinfectant of choice for dirty water, it creates secondary by-products that are toxins when chlorine reacts with naturally occurring organic matter. These by-products such as trihalomethanes (THMs) are suspected carcinogens and can increase risks of heart, lung, kidney, and bladder damage. Recently, water suppliers have been adding ammonia to drinking water in an attempt to reduce the THMs which unfortunately results in even more toxic chemical by-products that function as hormone disruptors as well as probable carcinogens.
Even if you have a water filter at your sink, what about the water with which we bathe, shower and wash our clothes. Considering that a 10 minute shower may cause you to absorb and breathe in more chlorine and chemicals than the amount we drink all day long, what is the solution?
Watch my interview with the highly respected Dr. Roy Speiser, who addresses many of the above concerns and who also tells us what to look for in the most comprehensive water and whole house system filtration, which includes a high quality, multi-barrier filtration system with a pore size so small that it efficiently blocks 99.9% of toxic chemicals and pathogens.
Dr. Speiser explains the pros and cons of distilled, reverse osmosis and the alkaline water rage, and provides us with his take on the best bottled water brands currently on the market, and what to drink when on the road or eating out. And, just in time for summer, he offers some safe alternatives for disinfecting swimming pools and hot tubs.
As a special service to my readers, Dr. Roy Speiser will provide a complimentary consultation to review your local water quality report and provide a recommendation to make your water safe and healthy to drink and bathe in.
