Just imagine what it can to the much more sensitive and tender insides of your body - your digestive system, your joints and muscles, and your cardiovascular system.
What's in your tap water?
The EPAs Safe Water Drinking Act only regulates 91 contaminants. Only a few have been added in the last 20+ years. The sad fact is neither the EPA or your local provider can afford to keep up with emerging issues. Even then, 40% of US community water systems regularly violate the Safe Drinking Water Act. Increasing numbers of scary chemicals, pharmaceuticals recycled into our water, system failures and water boil alerts are just some examples of failed safeguards. Tap water has undeniable issues. Just ask the good folks of Flint, Michigan.
Remember the movie Erin Brockovich? Hexavalent chromium or (chromium VI) isn't even one the EPA's 91 chemicals. The watch-dog Environmental Working Group analyzed drinking water across the United States and tested for chromium VI in 35 different cities. Unbelievably, they found chromium VI in 31 of the 35 cities1. Is yours one?

Simple carbon filters will reduce some organic compounds that make water taste and smell bad, but they do not filter out most contaminants including heavy metals, industrial chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and others.
