Most people know there is chlorine in their drinking water.
They also know there can be traces of a whole brew of other chemicals such as arsenic, fluoride, radium, aluminium, copper, lead, mercury and barium. Oh, and then there are the hormones and nitrates and pesticides.
Authorities claim that the chlorine levels are low. In Australia, local authorities are responsible for delivering drinking water to homes, and levels of contaminants (both organic and toxic chemicals) in water are different in different areas. Chlorine levels in Australia tend to be between 0.5mg to 1.5mg per litre. This might make everything seem okay. If levels are correct according to regulations, then what is the problem? The problem is, in fact, potentially enormous.
According to a research team at the Medical College of Wisconsin, there is an association between cancer and chlorinated water. A serious association.
The US Council of Environmental Quality has stated that “Cancer risk among people drinking chlorinated water is 93% higher than among those whose water does not contain chlorine.”
That takes a little time to sink in. Is it is possible that even the “low” levels of chlorine in our drinking water are killing us?
How does this happen?
Chlorination byproducts, or THMs, are formed when chlorine is added to our water and then blends with other natural compounds. Free radical production is triggered by these chlorine byproducts. The results include cell damage and the free radicals are highly carcinogenic.
Authorities state that the concentrations of THMs are low, but “it is precisely these low levels that cancer scientists believe are responsible for the majority of human cancers in the United States,” notes the Environmental Defense Fund.
“It is precisely these low levels that cancer scientists believe are responsible for the majority of human cancers in the United States.”
Researchers have now linked chlorine in drinking water to higher incidences of bladder, rectal and breast cancers, and a study conducted in Hartford, Connecticut found that women with breast cancer have 50-60 per cent higher levels of organochlorines (chlorine by-products) in their breast tissue than cancer-free women.
If we are in a position to do something about it, pure drinking water - free of chlorine - is essential.
In a world where we are concerned about, among other health issues, rising cancer rates, we can’t afford to live in ignorance regarding what might be contributing to that.
We do need to clean our water.
Our authorities do that by pouring bleach into it. It’s an inexpensive solution. And it is useful for disinfecting the decades-old pipework supplying our homes. But what is the damage to our lives and to our loved ones?
What is a realistic solution to make sure we protect our health? It is possible.
Chlorine is very simple to remove via filtration.
And when you do, a number of other benefits come into play:
- Removal of heavy metals
- Improved digestion
- Reduced acid reflux
- Improved joint health
- Improved skin health
- Reduced toxins
- Reduced limescale
- Increased energy
- Peace of mind
- World-class safety certified water
- Improved flavour of cooked food
- And it makes better tea!
Home remedies include letting the water stand for a few hours before drinking it. But that’s inconvenient and doesn’t address the issues that the long list of other contaminants presents.
Instead, many households are taking charge by installing convenient, cost-effective filtration options, such as Aquastream’s water filter taps.
