It seems as if we are being told that nearly everything we drink and eat has something wrong with it. Well, the bad news is that is true. And the good news is that we can do something about it with a little education. It took years before I was able to face head on this toxic water situation. Denial is a great defense. Then I started studying our water supplies.
According to a CBS-TV News Report we learn the following regarding our drinking water:
- Much of the water in the US is contaminated by fecal matter
- According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), there were 300,000 violations of water safety standards and only l% were prosecuted
- Up to 4,000 people a year die from bad water in the US
- The Center for Disease Control in Atlanta says that 11,000 cases of cancer a year are directly attributable to the chlorine in drinking water
- The Natural Resources Defense Council, a consumer’s watchdog group, says that the EPA is not doing its job in overseeing and policing the quality of water that Americans drink. They also state that the quality of tap water in the US is absolutely scandelous
Most of us knew intuitively that the water quality was far from adequate, so we began to drink bottled water. The first problem with this is that bottled water is 10 to 100 times more expensive than filtered water. But that is just the beginning of the problem. Seventy percent of bottled water is taken from municipal water supplies. One leading brand is actually tap water originating in the Hackensac River in New Jersey. Tap water may actually be safer because it has had to at least meet minimal safety standards. Various brands of bottled water sold in the US have been found to contain other contaminants such as benzene, radon, and trichloroethane.
After reading the plethora of literature, Dr. Morgan is suggesting the Multi-Pure System – either the above the sink or below the sink stainless steel models. Filters need to be changed about once a year for a family of four. Models MB880SB and MB880SC are presently installed in our medical practice and personal residences. When one extrapolates the cost of bottled water over a ten year period, the cost is over six thousand dollars. When one extrapolates the cost of the MultiPure System, the cost is about six hundred dollars.
The MultiPure water system is a solid carbon block filter technology. Take a look at the filter after one year of use. This filtration system is ideal, in my opinion, because it does not waste water. More importantly, this system does not remove essential trace minerals like Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc……Basically what I am saying is that all the crap is removed and the good stuff is left. Both the Reverse Osmosis and Distillation water systems remove essential trace minerals. Since our bodies are unable to synthesize minerals, this is of the utmost importance.
