Read. Shop. Buy smart.
In this issue CR asks, “What’s in your water?” and tells you how to conduct the necessary tests to find out. They contend that industries are releasing new chemicals at a rate difficult for the EPA to keep up with, and that it is questionable whether the limits EPA sets will be strict enough to protect consumers. If tested water shows problems, what remedies exist to fix it? CR provides a handy list of regulated and unregulated contaminants and explains the related risks. Guidance on how to clean up your water supply and tips on what to do to protect your health if you’ve been consuming poor quality water are also included. Read, “Filters That Work Best” for advice about what filter you’ll need to help remove specific contaminants.No comments
