CPT#4 Water

Blessings, Darlings!

Today's Cancer Prevention Tip is in the 'reduce exposure to toxins' category.  It is: filter the water you use to drink/cook with. 

There's a boatload of chemicals that get added to city water supplies to purify it and otherwise adjust it.  Chloride, fluoride, etc are added deliberately, aged pipes can add lead and other heavy metals, and so on.

While filtering is more important with city water, if you are on a well get a test every few years for chemical infiltration there.  Landfills leak, agricultural chemicals travel, illegally dumped stuff happens.  In the first house we owned - where I was pregnant - the well water in the area was contaminated by a Cargill dump site.

Frondly, Fern
