Water quality is one of the most important issues of our time, and one that Toronto home owners should be concerned with. It is important to make sure that your family is safe and protected from contaminants. 80% of your body and brain is made up of water. We take for granted that one of the most impactful health risks of our generation is Chlorine Disinfecting Byproducts in our tap water, and your primary exposure to these chemicals isn’t even from the water you drink.
Most people aren’t aware that when you shower, your exposure to harmful chemicals is dramatically increased. This is largely related to the volume of water you are exposed to, and the fact that the shower actually vaporizes these chemicals so you breathe them in and absorb them through your lungs and skin. Warm water causes your skin to become like a sponge. Amazing as it sounds, you can absorb more Chlorine Disinfecting Byproducts, such as Trihalomethanes, in a 10 minute shower than by drinking eight full glasses of the very same water.
Health Canada and President Obama Acknowledge the dangers of Chlorine Byproducts in our water supply and recommend a whole house carbon water filter as the best solution. President Obama clearly states in his cancer panel report, the necessity to filter your chlorinated tap water, and health Canada is reviewing their current guidelines, as to the maximum levels of Trihalomethanes they believe is acceptable in our tap water. Clearly they see the need to take a closer look.

Dr Oz has recently declared a “State of Emergency” with drinking and bathing in tap water. He clearly states that Trihalomethanes are a very serious health risk and that most doctors do not even know about this. In addition, this video shows the amount of violations by big industry by dumping toxic chemicals into our lakes, streams and rivers. Take note that the largest volume of illegal toxic chemical dumping is right at Lake Ontario, where we .all get our drinking water from! There are over 80,000 different chemicals used by industry and our municipality tests for only 217 of these. In some areas fish are born genderless due to the toxic chemical cocktail mixed in our waters. He indicates in this video that this is the most important show he may ever do.

When you open your dishwasher door after running a load of dishes, toxic vaporized chlorine and DBPs from tap water is released into the air, causing indoor pollution right in your home. As you can see, toxic chlorine and Trihalomethane exposure in your home comes from many sources beyond drinking unfiltered water from your sink. You and your family are exposed to a toxic cocktail of chemicals every time you:
- Take a bath
- Wash your hands
- Run a load of laundry
- Boil water
- Wash dishes, glasses and utensils
- Rinse fruits, vegetables or other foods
If you are purchasing organic produce and washing them in un-treated tap water, you are reapplying the toxic chemicals that you are paying so much extra to avoid. If you want to sustain a healthy and vital lifestyle, clean filtered water from every tap in your house is the single most important thing you can do. Don’t assume that municipal water is healthy. All the municipality can do is add chemicals to kill the bacteria and disinfect our water. They do quite an effective job of that, but shouldn’t the definition of clean, healthy water include toxin and chemical free?

The Environmental Factor
Plastic water bottles are one of the greatest environmental catastrophes of our generation. The amount of oil it takes to produce, transport and recycle one bottle of water, is equal to ¼ of the liquid contents in the bottle. Every time you drink 1 litre of water, you are using 250 ml of oil. The carbon footprint we are leaving behind by consuming bottled water is enormous. Wasteful bottles are contaminating our oceans, rivers, lakes and landfills and the toxins released from them ends up in our food chain. In addition, the idea that bottled water is healthier and cleaner is one of the biggest marketing myths of our time. The idea that Fiji or Smart Water is healthier, holds no scientific merit, and in many cases you are paying for nothing more than tap water in fancy packaging, endorsed by celebrities.
