Is Your Tap Water a Threat to Your Survival?

A few weeks ago in David Letterman’sshow opening monologue, he expressed gladness for the arrival of fall. He loves the colors–the browns, yellows, oranges, and reds. “And that’s just the tap water,” he said.

Of course, Letterman’s in New York. Who knows what’s in the tap water there?

But what about the tap water where you live? These days it’s not uncommon to hear reports showing that all over the country our drinking water contains residues from all kinds of medications, pesticides, and various waste matter. This is proof we don’t have to experience a natural disaster to be exposed to polluted water.

It also raises the concern that the water we take for granted could have a negative impact on our health. Could it even be a threat to our survival?

Below is a short video demonstrating what one man found in his tap water. He uses a reverse osmosis filtration system. After viewing it, you’ll realize you should have a top quality system for water filtration and purification, if you don’t already have one.
