Water Quality Contaminants


Majority of communities throughout Canada, the United States, and the world have water that is neither safe nor healthy for drinking.

Drinking unfiltered tap water can be hazardous and unhealthy because of contaminants from chemicals, microbiological bacteria and viruses, pharmaceutical drugs, toxic metals and others.

As a result of the extent of contamination in drinking water, the World Health Organization (WHO) has outlined that a preventative management approach be taken to ensure water is safe to drink and not wait for public authorities to finally address the issue of widespread contamination.


Microbiological and Chemical Contamination

Naturally occurring chemicals such as arsenic and fluoride in ground water have been identified as a problem in drinking water. Contamination of water bodies by industrial waste water and agricultural run-off is one of the major issues threatening public health.

It is essential that water be free of bacteria, viruses, and cysts; Pathogens in drinking water present immediate health risks and can be fatal. Every year thousands of cities across Canada and the United States are on boil water advisories due to the presence of pathogens in the public water systems.


Chlorine and Pharmaceutical Drugs

Recent water analysis's conducted in cities around the world have demonstrated that pharmaceutical drugs are present in municipal water supplies. According to CTV News, "Canadians' tap water may contain traces of prescription drugs".

Birth control pills, cancer drugs and a host of other pharmaceuticals are making their way into the water supply because the human body doesn't always absorb all the medication it ingests, and some are flushed down the drain, says Gord Miller, Ontario's environmental commissioner.




"Although I had a very healthy diet, after menopause I developed digestive problems. It didn't seem to matter what I ate or what I removed from my diet I suffered from painful bloating and gas in my stomach after eating...almost every meal! After one and a half years of trying many remedies I decided to try alkaline water. I knew the body needed to be alkaline balanced to be healthy. From our first jug of mineralpro's alkaline water we bought at De Vine Water in Vernon BC, I no longer suffered from digestive problems (We've been drinking alkaline water over four months now)! Do I want to go back to the RO water I was drinking to test if it was the water? No thanks. Once again I enjoy eating and thoroughly enjoy the taste of our alkaline water. (I can tell the superior taste of our MineralPRO™ alkaline water vs RO water blind-folded.) Thank you MineralPRO for healthy water (and body)!"
