I have always been a fitness and heath nut.
I take care of myself, eat correctly and avoid unhealthy behaviors such as smoking, drinking, etc.
However, I did make one unhealthy mistake for 40 years; drinking tap water.
When I was a kid, I drank from the garden hose, put my mouth under the kitchen faucet, and filled up a glass constantly. Water bottles? Never heard of them in the 70’s.
Little did I know at the time that the water pumped in by our local municipality contained some unhealthy. Who would believe that our own government would do something that wasn’t in the best interest of its citizens? Note the sarcasm?
Here is the truth.
Water that comes through the tap is treated with an enormous amount of chemicals with the end result of killing microorganisms including bacteria.
Also, it is known to be infused with other dangerous contaminants such as hormones, salts, toxic metals, and even pesticides from runoff.
And what about the dreaded chemicals? Unfortunately, your drinking water can be full of different types of chemicals including chlorine and even arsenic. Another huge problem is that the pipes the water runs through are full of microbes such as lead, protozoa, and bacteria.
So the gist is that city water is not safe to drink. The bottled water industry has exploded in the last few years as people begin to realize the dangers of municipal water. However, bottled water has many of the same problems as tap water.
So what is the answer?
The solution is to dig a well. Now, while this may be an expensive proposition on the front end, how much is the lives of your family and yourself worth?
Call a reputable well drilling company and let them provide you with clean, safe drinking water today. A well will last 20 years with no problems so it is a very smart investment.
As a health nut, I finally made the decision to get a well and it has been one of the best decisions of my life. I just wished I would have made it sooner.
