Toxic chemicals and your drinking water Featured Image

There was a bit of a scare recently regarding tap water in Cambridgeshire. 

PFAS compounds were found. These compounds are linked to increased cholesterol, low-birth-weight and suppressed immune responses. 

Sounds pretty serious and it is. Although Cambridge water has stated that due to technicalities they did not breach any legal limit of the chemical by the time it reached peoples houses. 

This begs the question of whether all of us need to be filtering our tapwater just in case any accidents like this happen in the future.

I personally filter 95% of the water I consume anyway due to various factors including chlorine content in the water. It’s also peace of mind.

Why? Well I’m going to answer that with a question, what does chlorine do? And do you think chlorine consumption is good for your own gut Microbiome? 

There are a range of filters I recommend to clients although the one I currently use is the Berkey filter. Their filters are of the highest quality, helping preserve minerals in the water and eradicating any harmful chemicals including potential parasites.

The filters can also last between 5 to 10 years which is a huge bonus.
