Toxic chemical waste product allowed in water
If you're not filtering your water yet, I don't know what you're waiting for -- because you're drinking poison, cooking with poison and bathing in poison.
From coast to coast, U.S. water is filthier than a Third World cesspool, and new "standards" out of California show just how bad your water is right now.
The state is proposing limits on hexavalent chromium, aka chromium-6, aka the cancer-causing chemical waste byproduct featured in the "Erin Brokovich" film -- and their proposed limits are a full 500 TIMES HIGHER than what the EPA considers safe.
California says reaching the EPA's level is just not economically feasible.
That's right, folks... once again, your safety takes a back seat to moolah, and don't rest easy if you're not sipping the chromium-6-rich California water -- because odds are, your own drinking water is just as bad.
It might even be worse.
While California's proposed standard is crazy high, it's actually the first and only state to propose any standard at all. That means the chromium-6 levels where you live could be off the charts -- and unless Erin comes to visit, you won't know until it's too late.
And chromium is just one of the hundreds of chemicals in your water.
And let's not forget the chemical waste byproducts, rocket fuel, metals and more that routinely turn up in high levels in U.S. tap water.
Don't count on the government -- federal, state or local -- to protect you. As you see in California, they can't (or won't).
That means you need to protect yourself with the only filtration system that can keep EVERYTHING out. It's called reverse osmosis, and it's available at any home improvement store for a couple hundred bucks.
If you're handy you can install it yourself.
Just be sure to place it where the water enters your home, not just in the kitchen, so that every tap and faucet is protected.
