It’s time to spill the truth about tap water.

Learn what’s in your water and what to do about it

Chlorine, Nitrates and Lead — oh my.

The standards that regulate tap water are woefully outdated, making your glass of tap a risk to your health. Click on each of the contaminants below to learn more about what’s actually in the water you’re drinking.

Arsenic

A “known human carcinogen” according to the EPA and World Health Organization that increases the risk of bladder, lung and skin cancer at unsafe levels. Arsenic is found in drinking water across all 50 states.

Lead

Lead ends up contaminating drinking water when it leaches from pipes and plumbing. Any amount of lead exposure is unsafe for children and may cause permanent development and behavioral issues.

PFAs

The most common PFAs found in drinking water are PFOS and PFOA. Called ‘forever chemicals’ because they take so long to biodegrade, PFAs can cause serious health effects including cancer, hormone disruption, & liver and immune system damage.

Chlorine

Necessary to disinfect our water of any waterborne diseases, but a potent chemical that alters the smell & taste of our water and is harmful in high doses.

Fluoride

While fluoride is effective for topical use for teeth, consuming fluoride at unsafe levels can cause skeletal fluorosis, making bones more brittle.

Nitrate

Agricultural run-off can cause this fertilizer chemical to end up in our drinking water. Levels of nitrate that exceed federal limits can cause an increased risk of cancer and even oxygen deprivation in babies.
