According to the Ralph Nader Research Institute, “U.S. drinking water contains more than 2,100 toxic chemicals that can cause cancer.” Toxic chemicals that can come from anywhere like agricultural runoff. The toxic water could possible even carry diseases such as diarrhea, cholera, malaria, intestinal worms, trachoma, typhoid, and many other serious conditions. Not to mention, numerous water contamination from natural occurring chemicals and minerals such as arsenic, uranium, manufacturing processes, or sewer overflows. All of these dangerous additions to your water can lead to adverse health effects.

Consuming contaminated water can cause gastrointestinal illness, reproductive problems, and neurological disorders. Infants, young children, pregnant women, the elderly, people of all ages with weak immune systems can be even more susceptible to illnesses from bad water. With water being something we all need and consume on a daily basis, we need to avoid all the water-related diseases and contaminants in our public water systems.

Visual clues water drinkers need to look for are cloudiness in the water, foamy water, white depositions in pipes, blue-green stains on sinks, and yellow water. If you suspect lead in the pipes, make sure to have your water tested for lead. Lead can cause delays in an infant or child’s mental or physical development. Pregnant women and nursing mothers should also avoid any lead exposure to protect their children.
