Are Allergies Caused By Tap Water?
July 17, 2015
It's routine for us to hear how symptoms of chronic diseases seem to magically alleviate once someone begins drinking pure water. Eczema, Asthma, Psoriasis, Dry Skin, Dry Eyes, Allergies, Acne. Though we cannot claim it as a cure, we can certainly claim that there is poison in most - if not all - tap water. This poison can be in the form of unregulated & unchecked chemicals, deliberately added chemicals (such as chlorine and chloramine), and the interaction between different chemicals which form new, more volatile compounds.
The following articles on the link between tap water and allergies is a great insight into how some of these chemicals get into us without our even knowing of it.
Note: Keep in mind that chlorination is not often regulated and there can be substantially more parts per million in tap water than in a swimming pool.
