Choose a water purification system that is easy and inexpensive! Clean, pure water for just pennies a gallon. No more plastic bottles delivered to your home! Most of us trust the safety of our water. What about the people in Flint, Michigan? They trusted their public water supply and look at the tragedy that has taken place. Just last week, my husband was informed not to drink any water at his place of work. The water main had broken and dangerous bacteria had leaked into the buildings water supply! Ok, so you have water delivered to your home in large plastic bottles. Research has shown that there might be cause for concern. Chemicals called phthalates, which are known to disrupt testosterone and other hormones, can leach into bottled water over time. One study found that water that had been stored for 10 weeks in plastic and glass bottles containing phthalates, suggested that the chemicals could be coming from the plastic cap or liner. Although there are regulatory standards limiting phthalates in tap water, there are no legal limits in bottled water; the bottled-water industry waged a successful campaign opposing the FDA proposal to set a legal limit for these chemicals. Ewww! Scary stuff! I used to live in Houston, Texas. I can imagine these bottles of water, sitting on a delivery truck in Houston in the middle of summer when the temperature is 102 degrees. Leach, leach, leach! And then I won’t even start to comment about how much pollution plastic bottles cause! GRRRRR! What’s a person to do? Buy a good quality water filter NOW!
