BERKEY WATER FILTER AND WATER CONTAMINATION

DRINKING WATER CONTAMINANTS

Just what might be wrong with your water? Here are some, but by no means, all of the types of the water pollution. Unpurified, your water may contain any or all of these four categories:
  • Protozoan Parasites
  • Toxic chemicals
  • Harmful Viruses
  • Poisonous Chemicals
The US Center for Disease Control has a special division, the Division of Parasitic Disease (DPD), which lists all types of microbial water contamination and their health consequences

SOME STARTLING STATISTICS

Is your water system contaminated? We dont always know.

The problem is not limited to the third world.

Here are some facts regarding water in the USA

  • In the US, 10,00 violations of EPA regulations regarding municipal water treatment are reported annually.
  • A study by the Medical College of Wisconsin and the US EPA concluded that about 7.1 million americans suffer nausia and diarrhea each year from bad water. As many as 1200 people die as a result.
  • > A study in USA today special report by Pete Eisler states: About 40,000 of the 170,000 water systems surveyed and serving about 58 million people violated minimum Federal, State or Municipal requirements and purity standards.
  • > About 9,000 municiapl water systems had significant water violations and posed a serious threat to public health.
  • In 1998, The Environmental Working Group studied water in 29 major cities. Water in all 29 cities had traces of Weed Killer.
  • Researchers from the US EPA and the National Geographic Survey have now found traces of antibiotics, birth control drugs, antidepressants and even caffeine in water samples taken across the country.

WERE AT THE TOP OF THE WATER CHAIN

Researchers at the Ralph Nader Institute have learned "That any chemical we use in our society will eventually end up in our water supply".
The US Council on Environmental Quality states, "many illnesses in our past, that could not be linked to any probable cause, have now been linked to toxins in our drinking water".

WATER FILTRATION UNIT SHOULD BE AN ESSENTIAL APPLIANCE IN EVERY HOUSEHOLD

America's tap water is contaminated with toxic heavy metals, synthetic organic chemicals, chlorination by-products, biological parasites and virtually thousands of harmful contaminants.

"E.P.A. reports show that U.S. water supplies contain over 2300 cancer causing chemicals..." -- Ralph Nader Research Group

Studies also show that bottled water isn't any purer than tap water, it simply costs more. Most quality home water purification products can provide water far superior to bottled water, at a fraction of the cost and in the convenience of your own home. The intention of this site is to promote the use of home water filtration, show what products are available and how to determine which ones are the best. Our goal is to also increase basic awareness of this critically important subject.

In America's highly industrialized society we use over 80,000 toxic chemicals every day, and over 1000 new ones are being developed every year. We are learning the hard way that all of the chemicals we use, will ultimately show up in the water we drink. There is no "new water", this planet keeps recycling the same water over and over. As we use more synthetic chemicals, the levels in our water supplies increases proportionately.

In contrast to popular belief, our water treatment facilities were not designed to take out synthetic organic chemicals and toxic heavy metals like lead. Municipal water treatment today is essentially the same as it was over 100 years ago, the water is flown through sand beds to remove visible particles and then bleach (chlorine) is added to kill most of the bacteria! We do not filter out the synthetic chemicals!

CANCER RATES SOAR AS WATER BECOMES MORE TOXIC

75 years ago, before all of these chemicals were present in our environment, 1 out of 50 Americans would get cancer in their lives... now, 1 in 3 Americans... 1 in 2 males, will become cancer victims! 1 in 8 women get breast cancer, childhood cancers have increased 300% in just the last 20 years... and much of this can be linked to the accumulation of man made chemicals in our body.

Cancer is not natural, it's a man made disease, and for the most part... completely preventable. The purity of our water is one of the most critical factors in the prevention of cancer and other degenerative diseases. Water is our body's only means of purifying its self. If our water already contains chemical contaminants, our body is not able to use it to its full benefit. When the risk is so great and the solution is so simple... why chance it?

In-home water purification is the most effective, by far the most convenient and most economical means of providing clean, healthy water for you and your family.

"Healthy water" is the best health insurance we can get... and home water purification is the best way to get it... possibly the only way.

Contamination can come from many sources. more inormation

THE WATER YOU DRINK MAY NOT BE AS SAFE AS YOU THINK

Weve found that the most efficient, cost effective, low maintenance, longest lasting system of water treatment is a gravity fed water purification system.. Its what we use and recommend for you and your loved ones.
