Water Pollution is a Growing Problem
Please be informed and share this with others. There are hundreds of companies out there and only a handful can do what they say they can. For example, as of Jan 1999 out of hundreds of companies, only 21 were certified to reduce trihalomethanes, a potent Voc. Companies have been known to lie about certification. Ask for proof! If it's a good product, the water filter will be supported by independent studies. Don't be fooled. The ones affected the most are the unborn, children and the immune compromised.
A couple misconceptions are: 1. Vocs are in our water in very small amounts and won't hurt us. False, these are potent chemicals and they are finding that a little accumulated over long periods can cause cancer, birth defect and hormonal disruption. 2. Distillers remove everything. This is not true, especially if you don't replace the carbon often. Vocs are volatile; they will recondense back into the water.
For further information please look at the research I have
gathered. I am currently researching toluene (one of the
Voc chemicals they suspect caused the above defects)
and atrazine, a pesticide found in our water supply.
If you have a filter, call the company and ask them to send you the results of the independent studies. Or you can e-mail me with the companies name and the model number of your water filter and I will tell you if they are certified and the range of chemicals they are certified to reduce. (By the way, if a company uses the word remove, as in they remove so and so, they are not certified. It is against certification policy to say remove. They must say reduce.)
