Heavy metals pose a serious threat to our health. Among the World Health Organizations (WHO) Top 10 chemicals of major health concerns, four of them are metal or metalloid: arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury, and many more. Because of their toxicity, they are also listed in the National Primary Drinking Water Regulations.
Long-term exposure to inorganic arsenic causes skin pigmentation change and lesions and eventually can lead to cancer.
Cadmium targets mainly the kidneys to cause renal diseases and stays in our body from 10 to 35 years.
Lead has multiple targets in our body and is deposited mainly in bones and teeth. Children absorb four to five times as much lead as adults; children who ingest lead may suffer from neural diseases and anemia. Both elemental mercury and methyl mercury are toxic. Mercury stays in the air for one year but can be stable in water sediments for millions of years.
Reverse Osmosis technology is used to eliminate up to 98% of heavy metals. The water molecules pass through the reverse osmosis membrane while the heavy metals and other contaminants are rejected to waste, leaving you with clean water.
