By Filtering Your Water At Home
I’m big on using tap water for drinking for our family and I like it to be clean & healthy, so we use a Pur Water Filter…it started way back when as I read an article about bottled water and tap water and what we know and don’t know about our water that we’re drinking-and the potential of Cancer!
Home water filtration is no longer just about taste. People increasingly rely on it for healthy home benefits.
In fact, home water filtering devices should be used to decrease exposure to potential health hazards according to the President’s Cancer Panel (PCP). This panel reports to the president of the United States and is charged with developing and executing strategies to reduce the “unacceptable burden of cancer” on Americans.
Specifically, the report states: “Individuals and families have many opportunities to reduce or eliminate chemical exposures. For example, filtering home tap or well water can decrease exposure to numerous known or suspected carcinogens and endocrine-disrupting chemicals.” Further, the panel asserts, “unless the home water source is known to be contaminated, it is preferable to use filtered tap water instead of commercially bottled water.”
