Are You Drinking Viruses?
If you’re not using a water filter, the answer is yes!
Clean drinking water never seems to be an issue until it’s too late. One day we hear on the news how children are developing behavioral problems and even cancer, thanks to their polluted drinking water. We don’t find out the water is harmful until in time to avoid nasty health effects. Our family is a proud affiliate of Berkey Water Filters, any purchase goes to support this website.
If you do not have a water filter, YOU are the water filter.
I recently had our town declare a boil alert for our tap water, but we didn’t find out until the next day. While boiling water may kill off bacteria, you are only CONCENTRATING all of the lead and other heavy metals.
According to the U.S. Council of Environmental Quality “The cancer risk to people who drink chlorinated water is 93 percent higher than those who don’t.”
Do you even know what is in your drinking water?
- Fluorine compounds
- Trihalomethanes (THMs)
- Salts of:
Millions of American’s are drinking water with unsafe levels of industrial chemicals according to a study published in the Journal Environmental Science and Technology Letters.
Berkey’s water filters are one of the only filters that can purify water eliminating viruses, pathogenic bacteria, cysts, parasites, sediment.
Berkey water filter is able to remove submicron viruses that other brands of water filters cannot without the use of chemicals like iodine or chlorine.
You’re probably thinking…why not just drink bottled water? Many bottled water companies have been tested and some of the companies were found to contain TAP WATER. Bottled water is also expensive, creates landfill waste and the plastic bottle chemicals can leech into the water.
Our family has tried pitcher filters in the past with no success. Not only did the pitchers leave in fluoride, the filter needed to be changed monthly which was a major cost factor. Why buy a water filter that’s more expensive and leaves neurotoxins in your water?
Berkey filters can filter 6000 gallons of water before needing to be replaced which is huge in comparison to the 100 gallons the average fridge pitcher filters.
With 4 kids, I have better things to do than constantly fill and change my refrigerator water filter.
With average use, the Berkey black filters will last 4 years!
The filter purifies so dramatically, you can actually successfully filter swimming pool or pond water into clean drinking water. That brings peace of mind if an emergency were to occur, our family would have access to clean water.
After doing days of research trying to find and compare filters, I realized most water filters leave fluoride and viruses in the drinking water. Some countertop filters don’t even remove pesticides. Round-Up or glyphosate is commonly found in ground water and is toxic to your health.
It’s sad we take so much time and effort to ensure our children have the proper education and nutrition, all to have them gulp down gallons of polluted water. When I found out that hormones/birth control pill residue was commonly found in tap water, it really pushed me over the edge. I don’t take all this time and effort to prepare healthy meals for our family only to have them drink lead, mercury, hormones, and pesticides.
Owning a Berkey Water Filter has brought me peace of mind that I positively know my children are drinking the purest cleanest water available today.
Even though the Berkey Water Filter is one of the most affordable filters on the market, having clean drinking water is priceless!
