It is no secret but the benefits of water are many! Many people still rely on the good old tap water but some argue our drinking water is becoming more and more polluted with metals, chlorine, pesticides and many harmful materials. Older buildings and houses in particular have pipes that contain more led and minerals that can contaminate the water you use. Modern houses are built to be more environmentally friendly and lead pipes are becoming more uncommon and the risk is particularly low in London due to the hard water which prevents the breakdown of lead. When we drink water from the taps they make their way into our bodies and arguably can affect our health as our tap water may look, taste and smell good but it can be harboured by products that are fairly unsafe. So what is the alternative? It has been said that installing water filter systems in your home can help remove harmful materials. Water filters will make the water in your home safer and better for drinking, bathing and cooking. In modern society water filtration systems are quickly becoming household standards.
It is not unknown that many water companies chlorinate their water. Chlorine is very effective in destroying bacteria, viruses and other organism, but at the same time it has a negative side as chlorine has been linked to the risk of cancers such as colon cancer. Tap water also contains nitrates which is usually as a result of over fertilising in agriculture. Some health organisations are concerned that nitrates can affect brain growth and development particularly in the young who seem more affected by this than adults.
