What’s Really in Your Tap Water?

According to the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines, our drinking water should:

“Ideally be clear, colourless and well aerated with no unpalatable taste or odours. It should contain no suspended matter, harmful chemical substances or pathogenic micro-organisms. “

These same guidelines also note the approval of 32 different chemicals which are deemed safe to add to drinking water, some of which include:

  • Chlorine
  • Organic chemicals
  • Nitrate
  • Bacteria
  • Lead
  • Aluminium
  • Trihalomethanes
  • Mercury
  • Fluoride
  • Cadmium
  • Polyaromatic hydrocarbons

What do you think of these chemicals? Do you deem them as “safe”? Do you want your family consuming these chemicals daily? Do some research on tap water in Australia and you will be astounded at the news articles that come up about how unsafe some of our drinking water is becoming.
