Treated Drinking Water Linked to Cancer and Viruses

Even though the United States has some of the best drinking water in the world, we are often reminded that it is not perfect and we shouldn’t take it for granted. Too many consumers hear that they have treated drinking water and assume that is it totally safe. Residents without home drinking water systems or water filters may want to sit down when they hear the recent news from an article from Water Technology Online.

According to the article, the Center for the Biology of Chronic Diseases, the government should start spending money on research on the effect of treated water on the spread of latent viruses and cancer. If more research is recommended, are all EPA regulations up-to-date? The CBCD has acknowledged a recent study in the journal Food and Environmental Virology that found that “treated sewage, when discharged into the environment, can contain high levels of waterborne pathogenic viruses.” The Theory of Microcompetition with Foreign DNA explains how latent viruses in the body can lead to cancer.

These findings are probably not in your area, right? Well over three million people live in California’s Orange County where a “toilet to tap” system is undergoing a $150 million expansion, according to the release, and where cancer rates are significantly higher than the national average.

Is your water treated? Is it protected? Regularly having your tap water tested is important, as research shows only about 20-80% of these contaminants are removed during water treatment and the rest goes back into the environment. Our drinking water systems work to provide your household with a continuous flow of safer, pure drinking water right at the tap. Too many consumers assume that their treated drinking water is safe. Our high-effective drinking water filters and RO systems may be the last line of defense that your home needs against oncogenic cancer causing Human Papillomaviruses (HPVs) and Polyomaviruses (HPyVs).
