Drugs in Your Water
People call me every day to review their water reports and discuss the type of water purification system they may need. i base my recommendations on local water reports because in my view it is the only way to know what you need. Some people call and say they want to remove everything, but 'everything' may or may not be in your water. To buy the correct water filter for your home it is advisable to start by studying your local water source. And that is the first thing I look for in a water report. Where is your water coming from? Water comes from mountains, it comes from lakes, it comes from rivers, and it comes from wells. Each of these sources has a different set of issues.
If your water source is a river and there are cities upstream of you then there are trace amounts of pharmaceuticals in your water. Because these amounts are very low, at present the government considers them to be of little consequence to your health. However, a number of studies now contradict this and suggest that even trace amounts of pharmaceuticals in drinking water can affect human cell growth.
Another serious issue on rivers in agricultural areas is the presence of numerous unregulated pesticides. Because these chemicals are not regulated, just like the pharmaceuticals, they don't show up in your local water report. But studies have shown them to be present in every river in the midwest so you can assume they are present...because they are.
My service is unique in that I first identify the contaminants in your water either by reviewing your city's water report or by selling you a well water test if your water source is a private well. In that way we can be certain that you are purchasing the correct water purification system for your situation.
My name is Jim McMahon, a professional ecologist of some accomplishment. What is an ecologist, you might ask. Well, it's a person who has studied the natural function of our planet's life support systems; her rivers and forests, the ecosystems that support all living things. I launched my company, Sweetwater LLC, in September 2002 after an extensive search for a business that I could operate from home. I live in a lovely little spot where I overlook the headwaters of the Santa Clara River while speaking with you on the phone. I was tired of the constant strife of the activist role and sought a way to continue to help people but with a greater focus on individuals. I chose water because I'd studied rivers in college and professionally and could build on my knowledge and experience. I provide home water purification systems and consulting services to people seeking a healthy lifestyle, or just trying to solve a water problem.
