Healthy lifestyle – dangerous pollutants get into our water supply, despite quality standards

You’re probably wondering, “How can this happen?” and “Someone is doing this on purpose?” To answer both questions, we simply need to refer to the CDC report, which estimates that “water-borne diseases associated with public drinking water are estimated to average 16.4 million per year of endemic water-borne diseases. These cases do not include cases involving private drinking water systems, bottled water, recreational water and non-potable water. ”

We are all aware that our government is going to keep the water supply free of pollution and healthy enough to consume, but the CDC report clearly states that tests have been conducted and contaminants have been found on the other end of tightly controlled water supply with strict compliance and standards. the end is our houses.

An article on how cysts (Cryptosporidium, Giardia, Entamoeba and Toxoplasma) are resistant to chlorine, so they can easily (and often pass) go through a communal water disinfection process. Cause gastrointestinal diseases, even death for weak people. Source of contamination: animal or human waste, contaminated food. Permissible level in water: ZERO. The NSF 53 standard covers cyst removal. (Most home water filters have a standard 42 for chlorine and sludge.)

The CDC defines Cryptosporidium – (Cryptosporidiosis) as a diarrheal disease caused by microscopic parasites, Cryptosporidium, can live in the intestines of humans and animals and come out of the feces of an infected person or animal. Both the disease and the parasite are widely known as “crypts”. The parasite is protected by an outer shell that allows it to survive outside the body for long periods of time and makes it very resistant to chlorine-based disinfectants. Over the past 2 decades, Crypto has become one of the most common causes of water-borne diseases (entertainment water and drinking water) in humans in the United States. The parasite is found in every region of the United States and around the world.

Although the staff of our watersheds and reservoirs ensure the quality of our water supply, after these standards and all measures that institutions such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) no longer apply, our water is now vulnerable to contaminants from cracked pipes even ruined old piping systems.

Having all these facts and figures, it would be careless on our part if we did not take any measures to prevent the spread of these pollutants; the health of our children, parents and future generations depends on us. And it won’t take much of our time, we can start with a simple message transfer and awareness raising. We can do our own research and look for answers, or even the simplest act of filtering our water source can make a big difference. No one should be in the dark, and we all deserve the opportunity to get a refreshing drink from the tap without worrying about the consequences.
