Occurs naturally in surface and groundwater and is also added to drinking water by many water systems. Long-term ingestion of fluoride in water increases dental fluorosis, can cause bone cancers, and low doses has potential to alter thyroid function and childhood brain development.
According to a report from the U.S. Council of Environmental Quality, the cancer risk for people who drink chlorinated water is up to 93% higher than for those whose water does not contain chlorine. It destroys our beneficial gut bacteria, where an estimated 70% of our immune system operates.
A by-product of chlorine and ammonia used to treat water. It is colorless, odorless, and tasteless. Chloramines are considered carcinogenic as they are linked to similar cancers as chlorine. Chloramine does not dissipate in the open air, because of the ammonia. This makes chloramine much more difficult to remove from drinking water than chlorine. All of our Allini Water Filters remove up to 99.99% of chloramines..
Trihalomethanes are cancer-causing contaminants that form during water treatment with chlorine and other disinfectants. They are VOCs (volatile organic chemicals), and are free radicals in the body, which trigger cell damage — and are highly carcinogenic, even in small amounts.
Chromium 6 (Hexavalent)
Chromium-6 is the cancer-causing chemical made notorious by the film “Erin Brockovich”. The EPA’s national survey of chromium-6 concentrations in drinking water revealed that the contaminant was found in more than 3/4 of water systems sampled, supplying more than 2/3 of Americans. It can damage the liver and reproductive system, and delay skeletal development of children. Infants, children and people taking antacids, as well as people with poorly functioning livers, are at greater risk from chromium-6 exposure.
