Over the years I have repeatedly warned against drinking water straight from the tap. This is because of the presence of contaminants within most water supplies. I have also written about deformed fish being found in San Francisco Bay due to actions of pharmaceuticals which are present in the bay’s water.
Well, the situation concerning drinking water continues to get worse according to a probe carried out by AP (Associated Press). They did investigative research and found pharmaceuticals present in drinking water right across the USA. (Note: this problem is not limited to just the USA. It applies in many other developed countries.)
Although the amounts detected are small the long term effects could be very dangerous, and of course with increasing use of pharmaceuticals the problem is only going to get worse…
There are two things that you can do to help yourself and the overall problem!
Firstly, do not drink water from the tap. Ensure that you have a good quality filter which removes pharmaceuticals. Check with your filter supplier. If in doubt set up a reverse osmosis system for your home or get a water distiller.
Secondly, try to avoid the need to take pharmaceuticals. Even if you do not throw them down the toilet not all the active ingredients get metabolized by the body so a portion of them pass through and end up in the water supply system. If you do not take pharmaceuticals try to keep it that way. One of the surest ways to achieve this is by the daily intake of our Total Balance and Omega 3/DHA.
