Toxic Tap Water Affects Nearly Everyone: Take Steps to Ensure you are Drinking Safe WaterPolluted drinking water has been making headlines lately. The lead poisoning due to known but ignored faulty filtration from the water works in Flint, Michigan. Even high level state officials had been attempting to cover-up the damage to children for its toxic tap water for years. This was major mainstream news. But it isn’t only Flint’s highly publicized scenario. Several other municipalities have been attempting to cover up similar toxic levels from poor water supply infrastructures. Chlorinating or boiling water doesn’t get rid of chemical or heavy metal pollutants. Now there are reports published showing excess toxic levels of hexavalent chromium 6, also known as the “Erin Brockovich chemical,” a potent carcinogen that causes other debilitating health issues besides cancer in most of our municipal water supplies, affecting over 200 million persons. Anyone desiring to protect their health today must take some steps to ensure one is drinking safe water.
