Toxins In Our Water = Health Problems

February 20, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 183

Ask anyone what they absolutely can't live without, and you may get answers like a car, a house, or even ice cream, but very few people are going to come up with the two things that are essential for the sustenance of life: air and water. That's because everyone takes these two commodities for granted assuming they will always be available. We know that in some areas of the globe there are struggles going on for both clean air and safe water, and even here in the United States, the quality of both air and water are suffering. The government has been trying to regulate both, but they have not been either stringent enough in their regulations or avidly funding necessary changes. These statistics have put us all in danger.

Whereas there isn't a whole lot you can do to help yourself as far as air quality goes, unless you can afford to live in isolation somewhere far from everyone else, clean water is a matter that you can take into your own hands to improve. Study the reports about the substances being found in our drinking water, and what you discover may be enough to make you feel sick. Ideally, the water we ingest should be free of hazardous contaminants, enriched with natural minerals like magnesium and calcium as well as electrolytes, test for healthy alkaline pH levels, and taste and smell clean. Sadly, the water we are receiving isn't up to these standards.

You've heard people telling you over and over to drink 8 8-oz glasses of water per day, and you should listen to what they're saying. Although it seems quite solid, more than two-thirds of your body is nothing but water. That's because H2O is the critical element in keeping your body systems functioning properly. Some of the things it does are:

* eliminate wastes and toxins from the body * regulate body temperatures * enable the absorption of food * allow for the digestive system to operate properly * provide both nutrients and oxygen to cells

With water being this critical to our health and well-being, we want to be able to ensure that the resources we rely on are clean and pure. Many of the substances are found in the water in only trace amounts, but experts say that if these toxins are ingested into the body over a period of years, they can cause serious health issues. You can no longer count solely on municipal treatment facilities for the reasons outlined above, but you can do something about the problem. By installing permanent water filters in your home, you can substantially reduce the contaminants in the water you and your family drinks.
