Healthy Water for a Healthy Life

Healthy Water for a Healthy Life

Chlorine is a common ingredient in our modern everyday environment. We use it to sanitize toilet bowls, shower floors, and kitchen counters. Pool maintenance staff use it to keep the water free of pathogens and bacteria for safe
swimming, and your tap water is disinfected with chlorine. Yes, the same chlorine used for sanitizing toilet bowls and swimming pools. Chlorine is designated as a pesticide by the EPA. While you may think pesticides are for visible bugs, in water, chlorine kills microscopic bugs – bacteria, pathogens, viruses – little bugs we cannot see. Little
bugs capable of making us very sick if we ingest them. Chlorine is a necessity to deliver water free of little bugs to your home, but once it arrives at your home, do you need to drink, bathe and cook with chlorinated water?
In fact, chlorine is a known human poison. This was demonstrated during world war one when chlorine gas was weaponized and used to severely burn the lungs and body tissues of opposing troops. Research shows a correlation between the consumption of chlorinated water and increased incidents of bladder and rectal cancers and atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). More shocking, a recent study conducted in Hartford, Connecticut, found
women with breast cancer have 50-60 percent higher levels of chlorine by-products in their breast
tissues than cancer-free women. Chlorine by-products, also referred to as organochlorines, can occur when chlorine interacts with the little microscopic bugs while the water is travelling to your home. Chloroform and trichloroethylene (TCE) are two highly volatile toxic chemicals that have been identified as contaminants in many municipal drinking water supplies. Chlorine in shower and bath water has a negative cosmetic effect.
Chlorine strips away natural skin, hair and scalp moisture. Skin loses its elasticity and begins to flake and itch. Hair becomes brittle and if you color your hair, chlorine strips away the color. Even if you do not use super-hot water during bathing, the steam from the water contains chlorine, chloroform and TCE which you are absorbing through your lungs just by breathing. This invisible gas floats throughout the house causing poor air quality. Studies have demonstrated that exposure to chlorine causes constriction of the airway and difficulty breathing. Chlorine impacts the taste and odor of water. There are times when the chlorine content in your tap water is greater than the chlorine content in a pool. Would you cook with pool water or tell your family to drink it when they are thirsty?
In addition to having chlorine in the water, our water is a cocktail of other contaminants called Volatile Organic Chemicals (VOC’s). Where do VOC’s come from? Household Chemicals, Industrial Chemicals, Agricultural
pesticides and herbicides, Automobile and Truck Exhaust, etc.
The good news is that it is possible to rid your home tap water of chlorine, chlorine by-products, and volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) by installing a whole house filtration system (WHFS). It is highly recommended that the WHFS has a two-stage filter design utilizing two medias, KDF 55 and high quality Catalytic Carbon to ensure clean water is delivered to every faucet. Many WHFS utilize only one filter media using a lower quality of carbon made from
coconut shells. Recommended WHFS: The EarthSmarte PH1000 Water Filter has the desired two stage filter design. Stage1: Water enters the Patented Distributor with over 20 lbs of KDF-55 Bacteriostatic Media which removes 70% of
the Chlorine and 100% of the Heavy Metals. Stage 2: Water flows through the High Energy Catalytic Carbon which removes the remaining Chlorine and 100% of the VOC’s. The water leaving the filter is ultra pure healthy water that is distributed to every faucet, shower and bath tub. End Results: Skin and hair are healthier. Everyone will enjoy softer skin and silkier Hair. There will be no chlorine and chemicals to absorb while bathing or showering. The entire family will enjoy enormous long-term health benefits. Healthy water for a healthy life is reality. Just
this simple safeguard may save family members from heart disease and cancer – the two major degenerative killers in the United States. Ease of Use: The EarthSmarte Filter has a 15-year warranty and requires no maintenance by the owner. It uses no salt or potassium. It requires virtually no maintenance and has no filters to change. It will
also eliminate hard water ccale in plumbing and fixtures. To learn more, visit norcal.earthsmartewater.com.
