The EPA states there are potential cancer causing contaminants in drinking water in areas throughout the country. In fact a State Department of Environment in connection with the EPA and a county Health Dept released information showing how many possible cases of fatal cancer can be expected from a specific contaminant found in the drinking water in areas around the country.
The EPA has stated:
"Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Children and infants, pregnant women and their fetuses, the frail elderly, people undergoing chemotherapy or living with HIV/AIDS, and transplant patients can be particularly at risk for infections… If you have special health care needs, consider taking additional precautions with your drinking water…"
Is your drinking water really safe?
Did you know the EPA has set 2 drinking water contaminant levels, the MCLG (Maximum Contaminant Level Goal) which is the level below which there is no known or expected risk to people's health and allows for a margin of safety. BUT, according to the EPA's own documents, they do not enforce that contaminant level. The 2nd level the MCL (Maximum Contaminant Level) which is the level the EPA enforces allows 33 contaminants to exceed the lower MCLG level The higher MCL level is the contaminant level the EPA enforces.
The EPA reports also states one of the reasons they allow municipal and public water supply systems to have contaminant levels above the MCLG is because of cost factors to the water supply system in filtering out the contaminants.
So the EPA knows that some of the water supply systems around the country are exceeding the Maximum Contaminant Level. Now combine that with the "fact" that the EPA reported there were 8,522 violations for health based standards reported by Water Supply Systems and 17,519 Water Supply Systems were in violation for failure to monitor or submit a report on contaminants in their water. Consider that number 17,519 Water Supply Systems around the country did not even monitor or report their findings in one year.
Is the drinking water absolutely safe at the higher EPA allowed level for those 33 contaminants? A State Department of the Environment in Coordination with the Environmental Protection Agency and a County Health Department states by drinking water with one of the 33 contaminant at the higher allowed MCL could cause an increased risk of fatal cancer and states the possible number of possible deaths related to drinking the water long term. This contaminant is found in the ground and seeps into drinking water and is Not filtered by the typical community/municipality filtration process.
The book discusses what that one contaminant level is that can be found in areas throughout the country,
According to EPA regulations, water coming from a municipal water system going to the public MUST be disinfected and filtered. The FDA bottled water regulations have NO regulations for disinfecting and filtering bottled water.
The EPA states the following about Health Based Violations:
“A health-based violation means that either a system has exposed their users to what EPA has judged as an unreasonable risk of illness, or a system has failed to treat their water to the extent EPA has judged necessary to protect their users from an unreasonable risk of illness in the event that the regulated contaminant is present in source water”

Over 400,000 people became ill caused by microscopic parasites in the drinking water in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This microscopic parasites is NOT filtered out by standard public water supply systems. Reports have shown an increase in these microscopic parasites in drinking water, public swimming pools and water parks around the country.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reported that Women/Girls "Drinking" or "Swimming" in unclean water can cause:
- Reproductive Problems (like infertility, can happen after drinking polluted water for a long period of time)
- Developmental Problems (like learning disabilities can happen after drinking dirty water for a long period of time)
- Vomiting or Diarrhea, A Sick Stomach, Skin Rashes
- Cancer (like Leukemia, can happen after drinking bad water for a long time.

Skin Absorption is a leading cause of contaminants entering your body, (from showering, bathing & Swimming). Showering is suspected as the primary cause of elevated chloroform in nearly every home because of the chlorine in the water
Soup, Pasta, Coffee, Tea, Ice, ect.
Contaminants in drinking water may end up in coffee, tea and other drinks made with tap water. Even food we cook that uses water such as pasta, soups, etc. may have contaminants in the water. Boiling water with Chlorine can lead to other issues
