As we are starting to be made aware of what is actually in our drinking water what did you expect. When was the last time any municipality flushed out the lines that carry it to your home? But what is even more disturbing is this quote from the article:
The water is “perfectly safe to drink,” claimed Michael Sobert from Consolidated Waterworks, “it’s just not safe to get up your nose.”
The problem with our drinking water is not going to change without being proactive. Although many have told me there is no problem, their water tastes great. After 20 years in this business I can tell you with certainty that where the same people are today with their health compared to people who were proactive is evidence there is a problem. We all need to be aware not scared and please stop making excuses because its our children and their children who are going to suffer.
As we see the effect of fires in Northern Alberta, we need to be aware of the potential risks to our drinking water. As stated in the article: “The city’s studying what can be done to reduce that risk”
Do we need another study to tell us we need to do something?
David Andrews, a senior scientist for the Environmental Working Group is bringing awareness about PFAS chemicals in our drinking water. As he states this is not isolated to the United States and has found a link to health problems. He was asked about water filters and states, “they will help a little bit”! and goes on to say “reverse osmosis, filtration will reduce the levels…”. This concurs that, although filtration does reduce the amount of PFAS chemicals, it does not eliminate them. We will be confirming if water distillation removes PFAS chemicals from water.
