Mainstream Media Continues to Mislead
the Public on the Truths About Tap Water

Tap water has received a lot of press lately, especially by the mainstream media who has touted that water from your tap is a great alternative to bottled water. They claim it should be your first choice since the government promises pure, clean and healthy water to consumers. Research about tap water proves otherwise.

Some of the claims made to try and convince you that tap is better for you are as follows:

1. Tap water is tested daily

Claim:
Under the Safe Drinking Water Act, water suppliers are required to provide an annual report on the quality of your local water and to test tap water daily.

Reality: There are close to 150 unregulated contaminants with no safety standards and are never tested by the Environmental Protection Agency or any other health and safety divisions of government. So it doesn't make a difference how often your tap water is tested because of the more than 260 contaminants detected, only 114 have enforceable health limits set by government.

2. Tap water is a bargain

Claim:
Filtered and bottled water can cost up to 1000 times more than tap.

Reality: If you buy expensive bottled water from companies with exaggerated claims that falsely boost their product's quality, you will pay substantially more than tap. The reality is, an effective plastic faucet-mounted, solid-carbon block filter will cost you less than $4 per month. That's less than most people spend on a latte at Starbucks.

3. Tap water is a tooth saver

Claim: Tap water has more fluoride than other water sources, which helps prevent tooth decay.

Reality: Drinking any amount of fluoride is dangerous to your health and has NEVER been proven to prevent tooth decay. It's actually the biggest scientific fraud ever to be promoted by national and international Governments. Read How Dangerous Is Fluoride To Your Health? Fluoride has been linked to osteoporosis, cancer, auto-immune diseases, and even very small concentrations can disrupt DNA repair enzymes by 50%.

4. Tap water is often tasty

Claim: Some places claim to have delicious tap water that rival bottled and filtered waters.

Reality: If the taste of metallic, chlorinated and contaminated water tastes delicious to you, then taste is not one of your fully functioning senses. You will never drink tap water again if you consistently switch to clean filtered and uncontaminated water.
