"I advise everyone to avoid drinking water from the tap, no matter how clean the city claims it to be," said consumer health advocate Mike Adams. "Even when cities claim their water is clean, they may still add toxic fluoride chemicals and chlorine, which we know promotes bladder cancer. Filtering your water is crucial for protecting your health."

Did you know that the average adult human body is 55 percent to 60 percent water? (Babies’ bodies are closer to 75 percent.) The brain is made up of about 70 percent water, and the lungs, closer to 90 percent. This means that the quality of the water you drink has an enormous impact on the quality of your health.

Unfortunately, high-quality drinking water is increasingly difficult to come by in this day and age. Most health conscious Americans know that, while we are lucky in this country to have access to water that is largely free of disease-causing microorganisms, drinking plain old, unfiltered tap water is generally not a great idea.

Environmental Working Group report revealed that the chemical hexavalent chromium (or chromium-6) is present in high concentrations in 31U.S. cities. This is the chemical made famous by the movie, "Erin Brockovich," which chronicled the case brought against Pacific Gas and Electric for contaminating the water in an area of Southern California and poisoning thousands of people. Yet, despite its known toxicity, there are no government regulations for hexavalent chromium in drinking water.

Here’s a rundown of some of the chemicals that are more than likely lurking in your tap water:

1. Fluoride
For over 50 years, the U.S. government has mandated that fluoride be added to the water supply to prevent dental problems. However, current research has shown that fluoride, a chemical that is used in rat poison, does a lot more harm than good. The fluoride found in tap water has actually been shown to damage tooth enamel, increase fracture risk, suppress immune and thyroid function, increase cancer risk and disrupt the function of the pineal gland.

Many European countries have banned the use of fluoride altogether, and there is a large activist movement of people working to get fluoride banned in the United States. Visit FluorideAlert.org to learn more.

2. Chlorine
Water treatment facilities use chlorine as a disinfectant. It effectively kills microorganisms, but also has toxic effects on the human body. Chlorine has been identified as a leading cause of bladder cancer,[1] and has been associated with rectal and breast cancers, asthma, birth defects and premature aging of skin.

3. Radioactive Contaminants
Radioactive fallout from Japan has been detected in drinking water supplies throughout the United States. In 2011, it was reported that radioactive iodine-131 was detected in drinking water samples from 13 U.S. cities.[2] Radioactive cesium and tellurium isotopes have also been detected at low levels in some cities.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has said that the levels are well below public-health concern, but that it continues to monitor the situation. (You can view this data on the EPA’s website.)

4. Pharmaceutical Drugs
Investigations have shown that an increasing number of pharmaceutical drugs are finding their way into our drinking water. Drugs ranging from antibiotics and birth control pills to painkillers, antidepressants and other psychiatric medications are now showing up in most municipal water supplies.

5. Hexavalent Chromium
In 2011, an Environmental Working Group report revealed that the chemical hexavalent chromium (or chromium-6) is present in high concentrations in 31U.S. cities. This is the chemical made famous by the movie, "Erin Brockovich," which chronicled the case brought against Pacific Gas and Electric for contaminating the water in an area of Southern California and poisoning thousands of people. Yet, despite its known toxicity, there are no government regulations for hexavalent chromium in drinking water.

6. Lead, Aluminum and Other Heavy Metals
Lead and other heavy metals can make their way into your tap water through corrosion of the pipes in your plumbing system. Lead consumption has been linked to severe developmental delays and learning disorders in children. Aluminum and other heavy metals have been linked to nerve, brain and kidney damage. Currently, some municipalities still transport water in lead pipes.

7. Arsenic
Arsenic is a poisonous element known to be extremely carcinogenic. The Natural Resources Defense Council estimates as many as 56 million Americans drink water containing unsafe levels of arsenic. For more information, see the USGS website, which offers maps showing where and to what extent arsenic occurs in ground water across the United States.

We agree on the facts... Here's the source contributing to bad water; public water treatment plants. Instead of fluoride, a reverse osmosis filtering system should be put in place:

I understand all this, and if one were to look under a microscope at a drop of water to see all those little things moving around in it, you'd probably swear off water.
Truth is, I've seen all the data concerning what's in our water, and I still drink it for the same reason I have not given up meat, sugar, salt, cholesterol, grease and all that other stuff that's supposed to be unhealthy for you. I believe that worrying about all that stuff is probably worse for your health than the stuff is. I've made it this far on everything that is supposed to be not good for you. I'm not about to start worrying about it now. And I'm sure as anything not about to spend good money on bottled water or filtration systems. If I do, then I might as well get an air filtration system as well because the air is filled with toxins too. Am I to worry about that? No, I don't believe I will.

Just my 2-cents worth.
