There Is a 1 In 4 Chance Your Water Is Unsafe Or Not Monitored For Contaminants


by Andrew Ciccone August 01, 2018

Millions of Americans are exposed to unsafe drinking water each year. In fact, there is nearly a one-in-four chance your tap water is either unsafe to drink or has not been properly monitored for contaminants by the government at all.

The Natural Resources Defense Council has released a study reporting that nearly 77 million Americans are potentially exposed and at risk to unsafe drinking water. The (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2015) found a wide spectrum of contaminants, including fecal coliform, lead and arsenic in water supplies. These contaminants can cause short-term illnesses such as gastroenteritis, as well as chronic conditions including cancer and neurological disorders.

The Sertodo Ayurvedic Copper Niagara Water Dispenser brings together ayurvedic natural health and handcrafted quality craftsmanship with every cool sip of H2O. The copper’s inherent anti microbial, anti fungal, anti bacterial qualities, this makes this the perfect vessel to hold your water.

Although the majority of the nation's water supply is safe, there are poor water systems in predominately rural low-income areas. Oklahoma, Texas and Idaho are states where there have been repeated water safety violations. 

It is absolutely critical for our state and local agencies to put in place procedures to routinely monitor and test our water supplies. Many cities report that their tap water has high levels of lead, nitrates, arsenic or other pollutants. Today, many communities simply have no way of knowing if their tap water is safe or contaminated. And there is no standard testing or monitoring that takes place nationally.

Despite overwhelming empirical evidence from leading scientists and rising support for clean water and a greener planet, President Trump's EPA has ignored and in many instances dismantled America's environmental policies. Wake up, this is a war on water.

The government has a responsibility to protect the interests of all Americans. This crisis needs to be addressed and those responsible must be held accountable.  The issue of water contamination is beginning to reach the public. This issue is not new, and without the efforts of all of us, the future of our water is at risk.
