There's no telling what we're eating or drinking.

I didn't see it in the article, but this is what the recently released movie "Dark Waters," a.k.a "Dry Run," is all about. Me and a buddy saw it and thought it was a bit scary. No doubt we all have been consuming forever chemicals. While the movie focused on the lawsuit brought on Dupont by a small community back in the seventies, other companies probably have exposed us to various threatening chemicals that our bodies cannot break down or flush out.

We have well water.

Our well is 150ft deep.

We have a softener system and use potassium in place of sodium.

We also have an RO system for the drinking water.

I try to not drink water, tea, or coffee away from thee house because of chlorine, but this got me thinking about all else that is a beverage and water used to make it.

I wonder if an RO system in place for city water would filter these out?

No wonder there is an explosion of hospitals and clinics being built around the country. People think it is for their benefit of bringing them closer to them.....????

My guess is the medical community knows how bad off we are and in need of help, now or in the future just based on things like this and GMO foods.

We use a similar set up in our rural schools, with the addition of 5 and 1 micron filters in series and a dual UV system. We also chlorinate but in very small doses, our drinking water is tested 3 times daily for correct disinfection and turbidity levels. I trust it much more than city water systems.
