Why Do I Need A Drinking Water Filter System

Jul 13, 2008
Can a drinking water filter system really give us the benefits the advertisers and manufacturers claim?

Water filter systems have become more important to our health because of the increased level of pollution that is being dumped into all our waterways.

The American treatment plants, like anywhere else, are showing problems in filtering drinkable water for the public. This could be linked to the fact that some of the treatment plants are old, the geographical location they are situated and all the new pollutants that are clogging up our waterways.

Make sure before you purchase your drinking water filter system that you have seen a certified guarantee and results from tests that have been completed on the product. Because let's face it - filtering your own water is the only way that you will have complete peace of mind.

Carcinogens can affect your water after it has been treated and before it reaches your house. How I can hear you asking yourself. Well chlorinated water leaves the plant and on its journey may well touch twigs and branches floating about and it is these molecules that are harmful.

The American Journal of Publich Health ran a headline story - Researchers from the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee found a correlation that those who drink tap water with high levels of chlorine by-products regularly are at a much higher risk of developing bladder or rectal cancers.

Lead is another concern for the filtration of water. Especially for children.

Colorado have undertaken studies that show how Lead exposure at a young age can cause permanent learning difficulties and hyperactive behaviour. Low-level lead exposure is also associated with elevated blood pressure, chronic anemia, and peripheral nerve damage.

With facts such as these it really puts the responsibility onto our own shoulders to make sure that we and our loved ones are protected from such dangers.

Did you know that 120 million plus Americans today are not getting pure healthy water they can use in their homes.

Some more staggering figures from U.S. Health Officials show somewhere in the region of 900,000 people are getting sick, of which approximately 900 are dying from water borne diseases yearly.

This is serious and once again makes us think about how we are left to protect ourselves and our families especially our children from such suffering.

Maybe you never even thought about how harmful your water could become once it had been treated. Sometimes we take things for granted and expect that our health and safety is being monitored by others.

Now that we understand how important it is then it is up to us to do something about it.
