You’ve heard about Erin Brockovich, right? She uncovered that Pacific Gas & Electric had been leaking toxic Chromium 6 into the ground water of a California town. In 1996 the utility giant was forced to pay out $333 million in damages.
Yes and no. Erin definitely scored an incredible victory, and halted the poisoning of an entire town. But the very sad news is that Chromium 6 is still present in tap water, and not just in California… it’s just about EVERYWHERE. Around 240 million Americans are affected.
The really bad news? Chromium 6 is just the beginning…
Many other pathogens and environmental pollutants have made their way into our water supplies. This includes not just public utilities but wells, bore holes and even springs.
The Chromium 6 Map will show if the water in your home town is affected by this toxic chemical.
The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) was originally passed by Congress in 1974 to protect public health by regulating the nation’s public drinking water supply. … standards for drinking water to protect against both naturally-occurring and man-made contaminants that may be found in drinking water.
However, only 91 contaminates are regulated by the Safe Drinking Water Act. And according to the New York Times, over 60,000 chemicals are used in America today. What a drag… Want some better news? I’ve discovered a way to have healthier drinking water! Purchase a Berkey Water Filter.
You can go to any grocery store or Target and purchase some type of water filtration device. But these devices are not made equal. Berkey leads the way in water filtration, and guess what? Not only do they remove contaminants like arsenic, chlorine, but you guessed it… Chromium 6 too!
We clearly taste the difference in water from the tap that’s gone through our Berkey. We can even smell the chlorine while adding tap water to the top to be filtered. After filtration, the smell is gone.
Berkey filters are made up of two canisters. The top canister hold tap water waiting to be filtered. Gravity brings the water through two sets of filters (black filters in the top, white in the bottom) and the filters are capable of filtering thousands of gallons of water.
A large Berkey not only stores more gallons of filtered water, but it can filter faster. The reason? It has space for additional filters. The more filter sets you have installed, the faster the gravitational filtration can happen.
Go purchase a Berkey. You’ll NEVER regret it. We keep ours on a handy roller stand in the kitchen, which makes moving it to the sink for a refill as easy as pie.
