Drugs - Prescription & Illegal
If we are taking it, we are also drinking it: birth control, tranquilizers, painkillers, blood thinners, hormones, chemotherapy, antibiotics, veterinary drugs, cocaine, amphetamines etc... Whatever goes into us, also comes out of us, through our own biological voiding. Every time we flush the toilet the drugs we ingest are making their way back to our water taps. The excreted drugs pass right through most sewage treatment processes and end up in rivers and lakes, and then in our drinking water. Environment Canada officials told a Senate committee hearing that more than 165 individual pharmaceuticals and personal care products have been identified in water samples. "Pharmaceuticals being consumed are going up between 10 and 15 per cent a year, here in North America due to aging baby boomers," said Environmental Toxicologist Chris Metcalfe of Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario. "So we can view this as a developing problem that will probably get worse, in terms of the amount of pharmaceuticals we can expect being discharged into the environment."
Reverse Osmosis systems are the best solution available as noted by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Food and Drug Administration as reducing and removing DRUGS from our drinking water. Several studies have shown that Reverse Osmosis units are capable of removing the commonly encountered DRUGS in our drinking water. To ensure drinking water safety, a reverse osmosis system is the recommended choice to effectively remove all DRUGS from drinking water. Reverse Osmosis home water treatment systems provide the most comprehensive solutions on the market for this increasing issue.
