As a Clean Plates reader, you know it’s important to eat clean food to avoid potentially harmful chemicals. And since you also know how important hydration is, no doubt you’re knocking back plenty of water every day.
But when’s the last time you stopped to think about how truly clean your water is?
The truth is, most tap water is not as clean as you may assume. Though the Environmental Protection Agency regulates about 100 contaminants in drinking water, a study by the Environmental Working Group found more than 300 in tap water serving over 53 million Americans. Those contaminants include hormones, plastics, chromium 6, nitrates, disinfection byproducts, and perchlorate (otherwise known as—wait for it—rocket fuel).
You work hard to put clean food in your body—you definitely don’t want to wash it down with tainted tap water.
And bottled water is not a good solution. It’s a huge expense; plus, water from plastic bottles contains phthalates or bisphenol A (BPA), which are toxic petrochemicals. In a recent study, researchers tested 250 bottles of water in 9 countries, including the U.S., and found plastic in 93 percent of the samples.
Then there’s the environmental impact—just this past year alone, hundreds of thousands of plastic water bottles were discarded in U.S. national parks.
As for pitcher-style filters, they’re only certified to remove a handful of contaminants. So they basically just make your water taste better, but they aren’t really protecting you or your family. The same is true for the filters you attach to the end of your kitchen sink faucet.
Now for the good news: There is an effective way to remove virtually all toxic chemicals, including fluoride, from your water, called multi-stage reverse osmosis. This is the same technology used by the largest bottled-water companies.
If you’ve heard of reverse osmosis, you may know that installing an under-the-sink purifier can be prohibitively expensive, and requires professional installation and upkeep. But now there’s a way to get all the benefits of reverse osmosis without the expense or hassle: AquaTru.
The AquaTru Water Filtration System is a countertop reverse osmosis purifier that works right out of the box, with no installation or plumbing required. At $349, it’s an affordable way to get the cleanest water for yourself and your family. And, for a limited time, Clean Plates readers can get $50 off. Get ready to enjoy this essential part of good health: safe, clean drinking water. There’s also a 30-day money-back guarantee, so you can try it out risk free.
