What you should know about Toxins
Toxins such as pesticides and endocrine disruptors are undetectable and many are not regulated in city water.
Hazardous toxins can enter the water supply from many sources, including prescription medications, industrial contamination, improperly disposed waste, and fertilizers. Many toxins in water, such as arsenic and fluoride, are naturally occurring. In addition, there are more than 84,000 different chemicals in the US*, such as prescription medications and the rocket fuel perchlorate, but the EPA is only regulating about 90 of them in the water. Therefore, the remaining chemicals are not tested to ensure drinking water quality. Many of these toxins in water can cause serious health problems when absorbed through the skin, or inhaled in moisture-laden air.**
