Municipal water is contaminated with pharmaceutical products, industrial pollutants, and microbes. Additionally, it is processed with endocrine-disrupting and neurotoxic fluoride and chlorine. This study looked at the association, in a New Jersey cohort, of birth defects with contaminated water.
- Environmental Working Group has identified 316 water contaminants, 202 of which are not regulated (or understood)
- Use this resource to identify contaminants in your area and help to determine which water filter is best for you.
- I recommend reverse osmosis or Mountain Valley Spring Water, particularly for pregnant, nursing women, and babies.
