    Wayyyy too much hand wringing over water.

    FYI, nobody in the U.S. is sick or dying because of the water supply, with the possible exception of Flint, Michigan.

    Please let this stupid fvcking thread die

    Well damn, so this is on the news here in Wilmington: http://www.starnewsonline.com/news/20170608/water-faqs-what-we-know-and-what-we-dont-know.

    I need swellinfo's crack team of advise-ers. Should I pony up and buy a RO system (if so which fvcking one)? One of those Berkey tank things? Or just say fvck it and succumb to the "kidney cancer, testicular cancer, ulcerative colitis, thyroid disease, hypercholesterolemia (high cholesterol), and pregnancy-induced hypertension (heh)" risks.

    Berkey
    ProPur
    Elexa
    All good.
    Just make sure to buy the king size and the upgraded filters.
    Pro Pur makes a decent shower head filter too.

    Years and years of low level intake of toxins can emerge as cancer or some other horrendous ailment much later in life.
    Problem is that the cause of disease x is hard to put the finger on.
    50 years ago a doctor would fly across the nation to treat some rare child cancer.
    Now child cancers are at an alarming rate.
    Planet has turned into a raging cesspool and IMHO it's best to err on the side of caution in situations that are in your control such as drinking water and clean food.

    Years ago most illnesses went undiagnosed. Now they have far better methods of detecting.

    Thanks for the recommendations. Shoot, showers too? Maybe I'll just stop using water altogether and take Barry's advice and go kill myself. Is it worth it to just put something on the water intake on my house?

    Brita IMO helps, but not a lot...get yourself a $20 tds meter to see how pure your water. I now run a $200 ro unit under sink...darn near perfect water from my well...tds around 3. My well was 200...my fridge filter got me down to 100...ro in the low single digits.

    That is debatable, and not all experts agree.
    Err on the side of caution.

    I don't see why not.
    A decent intake would prob run a grand, and filter replacement annually aprox $300-$500.
    Your skin's the largest organ and that hot shower really soaks in all them chems.
    Plus the water you cook with etc.
    In the long run it's still cheaper than buying bottled water from god knows where in chemical laden plastic bottles.

    NYNJ is 100% correct on that diagnosis point. The level of diagnostic accuracy, the frequency of testing, much better technology has really brought out higher rates. The prevalence rates are being blown away by incidence rates due to better technology and diagnosis. Prevalence rates are the "natural occurring" rates of a disease; incidence rates are the rates of diagnostic finds. If incidence rates are higher than stated prevalence, you have an "outbreak" or better technology correcting understated prevalence rates.

    I'm just going to continue to drink the water, shower with it, in the hope I get some super powers... Man, our water does really suck.
