Chemicals in Your Drinking Water That Could Be Wrecking Your Health
December 28, 2013

Story at-a-glance

  • Most tap water is far from pure, containing a vast array of disinfection byproducts, chemicals, radiation, heavy metals, and even pharmaceutical drugs
  • Federal scientists report finding traces of 18 unregulated contaminants in one-third of the water samples collected from 25 municipal utilities across the US in their most recent testing, including perfluorinated compounds like PFOA
  • Studies suggest a probable link between PFOA in drinking water and high cholesterol, ulcerative colitis, thyroid disease, testicular cancer, kidney cancer, and pregnancy-induced hypertension
  • The addition of contaminated fluoride to the water supply may be contributing to increased cancer rates in the US because of the arsenic it contains
  • The featured documentary, An Inconvenient Tooth, reveals the many problems associated with water fluoridation, and why it’s a practice that really needs to be stopped for the public’s greater good
