Your water probably isn’t safe.

We get it. There’s a certain yelling-fire-in-a-crowded-theater thing at play here. We’re telling you that something you’ve taken for granted—probably for your whole life—isn’t safe. Of course you’re going to be skeptical. Of course your initial reaction is to think we’re just trying to generate panic to sell something.

But there’s the thing. The theater is really on fire, and the fire is going to kill people.

You’ve heard about the lead in the water in Flint, and you probably think that’s an isolated case because an epidemic of bad tap water would be all over the news, right?

Not so much.

A study [1] by an urban planner at the University of California at Irvine looked at almost 18,000 community water systems for more than two decades and found that every year, tens of millions of Americans were exposed to contaminants that ranged from fecal coliform to lead and arsenic. All told, the contaminants caused everything from short-term gastritis to cancer and neurological conditions. For more on this, check out our article on Tap Water and Diseases .

The people we’ve put in charge of protecting our water supplies aren’t doing their job, and bottled water isn’t a real option.

Not only are the bottles themselves horrifically damaging to our environment, but the whole process uses an absurd amount of energy that isn’t sustainable[2].

Ready to get punched in the gut?

Bottled water isn’t any safer than tap water. Tap water, for all its faults, has federal regulations mandating it be tested and that consumers be notified if something untoward turns up. Bottled water doesn’t. Bottled water is sold for a profit and the more testing you do, the lower those profits are [3].

Oh, and we almost hesitate to mention this, but most of the time, bottled water is just tap water in a bottle with no additional filtering whatsoever . Check out article Outrageous bottled water facts you need to know.

That feeling in your gut right now? The one that’s a combination of a sense of betrayal that this could happen, the horror that you’ve been drinking god-knows-what all your life, and fear that you’ve been giving your kids something that could damage them for their whole lives?

That’s why we do this. That’s why we yell fire in a crowded theater. And sure, we’ve got affiliate links to water filters and filtration systems. That’s because a bad filter is worse than no filter. We highlight the highest quality water filters so you can trust that you’re buying a real solution to tainted water. If you’d like to help us spread the word, you can make a donation.

We’ve written a report that’s got all the terrifying details about the water you’re giving your kids. We’ll send it to you completely free; we just need an e-mail address to send it to. So please, use the form in the Home page to get your report and start looking for a filtration system that fits your needs.

It is a silent battle that we, as parents, carry on for our children and also for those who will be born tomorrow. We count on you to spread the word !

Thank you.
