Think your tap water is safe?

Think again.

Treated municipal high quality water after leaving the treatment plant, will pick up many contaminants by the time it comes out of your faucet.

The pipes that run throughout your city, were installed decades ago, and the main source of water contamination.

The plumbing in most older residences houses, townhouses, condominiums and apartments built before 1990 can also cause water contamination.

It has a cumulative toxic effect on human health and permanently remains in the body's tissue, especially brain tissue.

According to the Medical Association, it interferes with red blood cell formation and changes the way these cells work.

It alters the way nerve cells signal each other, and disrupts the way the brain makes connections for thinking.

Even small blood-lead levels can cause anemia, elevated blood pressure, hypertension, strokes, heart attack, kidney damage, and lower IQ.

It's much more harmful to children than adults because it can affect children's developing nerves and brains.

The younger the child, the more harmful it can be.

Unborn children are the most vulnerable.

If your house or apartment is built after the mid-1950s, but before 1989, flush your pipes regularly

Use cold water for cooking and drinking to reduce the small amounts of lead that might be in your water from lead solder (or seams) that might be in your plumbing

This is all you need to do, even if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have a child under six years old or are feeding your baby formula made with tap water If you live in an older home, don’t sand or scrape the paint because it may contain lead.

Paint used in homes built before 1980 can contain lead

This lead can get into your house dust so be sure to dust regularly with a wet mop or cloth

Children should wash their hands often, especially before eating and at bedtime, to remove any lead dust on their hands Don’t wear your outdoor shoes inside the house
