Why do I need a drinking water system?
Feeling under the weather? My Gran used to say "It must be something in the water." Maybe this wasn’t just an old wives tale!
Much of the world's drinking water is contaminated by industrial, pharmaceutical, agricultural and domestic pollution. Many ground water sources harbour highly toxic natural contaminants. According to many reasearch articles published, consumption of contaminated water over time may result in cancers, bone problems, nervous system damage, and other more subtle toxic health effects.
As we all know, utility companies use a variety of chemicals to treat our drinking water, for example Liquified chlorine, Fluorosilicic acid, Calcium hydroxide, Aluminium sulphate and Sodium silicofluoride to name a few, in order to kill bacteria and other organisms in the water and provide us with ‘safe drinking water’. Some of these are, of themselves, harmful to health and many scientists are concerned about the long term effects of ingesting small amounts of these chemicals on our health and are actively seeking to change some of these processes.
Tap water has to travel from the source to our tap via a network of underground pipes, many of which were laid by the Victorians and it is very unlikely not to become contaminated by other chemicals or microbes like lead, bacteria and protozoa along route.
Typical tap water contains:
Chlorine, Fluorine compounds, Trihalomethanes (THMs), Salts of: Arsenic, Aluminium, Lead, Mercury, Cadmium, Barium, Hormones, Pesticides, Radium, Copper and Nitrates.
Despite concerns about the health hazards of adding fluoride to drinking water and the fact that fluoridation of water is banned in all European countries, around 10% of the UK’s drinking water is fluoridated. If you Google the effect of fluoride, I’m sure you will find all the information required to make a judgement for yourself.
