I wanted to talk about something I really don’t take lightly but have never addressed on any social media sites… water.
I have been using filtrated water since about 2007. I used to buy Culligan water many moons ago, then we did brita filters, and now reverse osmosis. RO water is SO good!! I have also filtered my showers for over 15 years.
SOOO, do you remember watching Erin Brockovich and just crying during that movie?? Well, I sure do!!! It was SAD that people were dying from what was going on around them environmentally! Do you THINK that is still going on? Or did we all just forget because there hasn’t been a movie made about it since then?? Well, I stay in touch with Erin via email and she is STILL campaigning against all of this!! IT is SO SAD that it has been since 1991 and nothing has changed.. friends, you really need to stop thinking “OH, that is so hippy thinking… there is nothing wrong with tap water”.. YES. THERE IS!!! And it is NOT just chlorine. And there is proof. Here is an interactive MAP with all the States.. you can go to YOUR COUNTY and see how nasty your water is… and make up your own mind whether you will spend some money on doing something about it..HERE it is: INTERACTIVE MAP.
What is this Chromium-6?
