Microbiological and Chemical Contamination

water-contaminents-microbial-chemicalIn addition to microbiological contamination, the modern world is faced with the problem of contamination from chemicals in drinking water. 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.


  • Environment Canada notes that most of the 100,000 known industrial chemicals are discharged into our waterways
  • Chemical contaminants are carcinogenic - health officials have estimated that chemical contamination accounts for 55 to 60 percent of all cancer cases annually.
  • Chemical health issues include many varieties of cancer, brain diseases, liver and kidney problems, heart disease and more
  • Many chemicals come from farming, landfills, leaking storage tanks, septic systems, accidental spills and industrial dumping
  • Chemical contaminations have been found in unusually large quantities in waterways downstream from manufacturing plants.
  • Common chemical contaminants in water include Chlorine, Fluoride, PCB's. Pesticides, Fertilizers, Petrochemicals, and Dioxins
  • Most public water system in Canada and the United States inject chlorine into the water to disinfect and reduce bacteria levels
  • Some public water systems in Canada and the United States inject Fluoride into the water to disinfect and reduce bacteria levels



"I grew up on a farm in the interior of B.C, Canada. We had fresh water right from a natural spring water run off, and I always thought that was what all the water in the world tasted like. My mother called it “mountain juice”, and we drank it up eagerly, but not knowing how lucky we were to have the fresh, clean and uncontaminated water that we had.

It was not until I started traveling away from our little farm that I noticed the difference, and I started to educate myself about the quality of water around the world. I often wondered about the strong chlorine taste of the water in nearly every city I visited. I was astonished to learn that drinking unfiltered tap water can be hazardous and unhealthy because of chemicals, microbiological bacteria and viruses, pharmaceutical drugs, toxic metals and other contaminants.

Chlorine is one of the obvious added contaminants in most tap water. Most people are not aware that chlorine in water combines with natural organic matter creating cancer-causing Trihalomethanes (THM's). It is associated with triggering tumor development both in heart disease and cancer. Research has shown the basic cause of heart disease, heart attacks and most common forms of strokes is from the chlorine contained in drinking water.

CBC Research found that 24 of the 28 water samples taken from major metropolitan area water supplies contained evidence of drug contamination. “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.

In addition to chlorine and drugs in our drinking water, iron, fluoride, and harmful bacteria are also present in the majority of North American tap water.

Water consumption is so important to our health, that it vital that we have access to clean, and healthy drinking water. Healthy water, is water the way nature intended before we contaminated it, stripped it of its natural minerals, and reduced the pH to unhealthy acidic levels. Ordinary tap water must be first cleaned of harmful contaminates including chlorine, fluoride, pharmaceutical drugs, metals (mercury, lead, arsenic), chemicals, and bacteria. It must then be replenished with minerals to ensure that naturally occurring minerals are present. To ensure optimum health, the water should then be Alkaline PH balanced, and be certain that the water has a fresh spring water taste.

This can be achieved with Mineral Alkaline Drinking Water Filter Systems.

The first time I tried water cleaned by on of these water filter systems, I assumed that I was drinking natural spring water. I was surprised to find out how the Mineral Pro water filter systemswork, and how beneficial they are to our health. After a month of drinking the filtered mineral alkaline water, I noticed the health of my whole family increase. My skin was healthy and clear, and we all had so much more energy than before. I am relieved to know that even though I don’t live in an area with my own spring water run off, I can still get the same great quality water wherever I chose to live with the help of Mineralpro water filter systems."
