Water Bottle Contaminants
There may be contaminants in your drinking water that are causing you to show and feel your age more quickly than you’d like. If you drink tap water or city water, it is important to know what’s in your water because it could contain a nasty stew of pollutants including chemicals, bacteria and heavy metals. Although most people automatically assume that city water is “safe” to drink, it is not always the case. Quite often, tap water across the country has been tested to contain higher levels of contaminants than their legal limits and drinking and bathing in polluted water can cause severe illness and health problems. This wear and tear on the body will have a direct effect on your energy and appearance and perhaps even your longevity.
There are many different man-made and natural contaminants that can occasionally be found in the public water system at health threatening levels. Microbes including bacteria like coliform, E coli, Cryptosporidium and Giardia Lamblia can cause stomach issues, headaches, some gastrointestinal diseases, and severe illness. Radionuclides like Alpha emitters, beta and photon emitters, combined radium 226/228, and radon gas all can cause cancer, aging of the skin and acne. Inorganic contaminants and volatile organic contaminants like arsenic, benzene, styrene, fluoride, lead, mercury and copper can cause skin damage, cancer, circulatory issues, and even problems with your teeth and pregnancy. Disinfectants like chlorine, chloramine, and chlorine dioxide can kill vitamin E and other fatty acids that help keep your skin healthy. The water company might add extra disinfectants after a heavy rain to help kill germs. Disinfection byproducts like total trihalomethanes, bromate, halocetic acids and cholorite can cause liver or kidney cancer along with skin, digestive, and nervous system problems.
The good thing is, tap water may contain very little to no levels of these contaminants most of the time. Unfortunately, no one ever knows when these contaminants may show up and at what levels. Even if the levels are extremely low, long-term exposure to many pollutants may still lead to moderate to serious health concerns that will affect your overall appearance and wellness. These health complications can be prevented by simply using a filtration system to purify your drinking water.
Not only is drinking purified water better for your skin and helps to prevent aging symptoms, it could also help you to reduce the risk of having major health issues and protect your family from harmful contaminants. Finding the right purifying system that can rid your water of all of these contaminants and many more will help to ensure the health of you and your family as well as the condition of your skin.
Alternatively, you may drink bottled water, which should have better quality than city or tap water. However, home filtration systems that can remove over 90% of harmful chemicals are proven to be more cost effective over time. When you think about how many bottles of water you go through a year, a filtration system will not only provide safe drinking water at your convenience, but will also help save the planet from all those plastic water bottles waste.
