Tap Water and Expectant Mothers

by Tim, 1 Comment »

Wow… check out this study. An analysis of nearly 400,000 infants in Taiwan was the first of its kind to show a link between by-products of water chlorination and three specific birth defects. The article does not presume to state anything concretely. However, I would tell you that while chlorine may work well to disinfect water and allow for safe transport, it is not healthy to consume.

I know, I know… I have already mentioned this… maybe numerous times, but it is important to take note especially of something so important to our bodies as water. When I moved to Nashville, I noticed the water even more… I could taste the chlorine right away… that’s no good. Also as I mentioned before I have a wellness filter (pitcher) and new wave enviro shower filter. I definitely would recommend both and especially like the wellness filter because it not only filters the water but also enhances it… there is a marked difference, especially when the filter is fresh.
