Report on Laguna niguel tap water notes a number of cancer causing contaminants

It can be difficult to educate the public as to the dangers in our tap water.  A recent article once again states what is starting to sound like a broken record.

“A report released Wednesday, though, found more than 270 harmful contaminants in local drinking water across the nation, including in Orange County.  The substances are linked to cancer, damage to the brain and nervous system, hormonal disruption, problems in pregnancy and other serious health conditions.”  The article is here:  https://tinyurl.com/y6g3oe3j

In the article, it is discussed that a lot of the legal limits are outdated.  What was once thought to be okay levels of contaminants and chemicals are now known to be unsafe.  This is scary stuff if you give it some thought.

The nonprofit Environmental Working Group did testing of the Moulton Niguel water district and found 8 dangerous contaminants.  That is the Laguna Niguel and surrounding cities’ water district.  You have to read the article and read down that list.  It is shocking.  https://tinyurl.com/y6g3oe3j

We thought this quote from the Environmental Working Group is especially telling and rings true for us.  “The regulatory system meant to ensure the safety of America’s drinking water is broken. The inexcusable failure of the federal government’s responsibility to protect public health means there are no legal limits for more than 160 unregulated contaminants in U.S. tap water.” 

Our whole business is based on filtering out chemicals and contaminants like the ones mentioned in the article.  Check our main website for information https://pureelementswater.com as well as our informational hub site https://pureelementswater.net
