The tap water you drink, bathe in or wash your clothes with may contain arsenic, led, copper and other heavy metals, and may also contain fertilizer residues, asbestos and pesticides that have leached into ground water. Here in the US, several hundred thousand underground storage tanks are thought to be leaking paints and toxic chemicals. There are about 30 thousand hazardous waste sites that contaminate ground water. The livestock industry produces 130 times more excrement than humans do and it flows untreated into our water systems. There are also viruses, bacteria and parasites that contaminate water supplies. Most city municipalities add the extremely toxic chemical, chlorine and fluoride to our water. So if you are going to drink your tap water, installation of a good quality water filter is highly recommended. If you want to learn more about why to filter your tap water, read this informative book, The Beginners Guide to Natural Living.
