Keeping Lead Out of Your Drinking Water

Lead is one of the most terrifying contaminants in our water.

Lead is dangerous not just because of what it does to your body (more of that in a moment), but because you simply won’t know it’s there. Many people think they would be able to recognize the signs of lead contaminating their water, but here’s the deal: lead cannot be picked up by your senses. Lead is completely colorless, has no odor, and – crucially – no taste.

You could be drinking lead from your tap, and genuinely have no idea.

What You Need to Know About Lead

The other facts surrounding lead:

  • There is no safe level of lead
  • Lead is likely to remain stored in the body for decades with around 95% of lead accumulating in the teeth and bones
  • The maximum acceptable level of lead contamination in drinking water has been set by the EPA at zero


What Lead Does to Your Body

Why is lead one of the most terrifying contaminants in your water? Simply because lead poisoning is linked to so many catastrophic conditions – particularly for children – including:

  • Severe damage to the brain and central nervous system
  • Permanent intellectual disability
  • Behavioral disorders
  • Abnormal brain development
  • Negative impact on educational attainment and social behavior
  • Anemia
  • Hypertension
  • Renal issues
  • Immunotoxicity
  • Reproductive organ complications

To make matters even worse, scientists believe that many aspects of lead poisoning are irreversible.


Keeping Lead Out of Your Water – Is it Possible?

Keeping lead out of your drinking water isn’t easy because lead is such a widespread pollutant. Water treatment plants cannot do it – thousands of miles of broken and leaking pipework ensure that contamination remains rife.

Standard jug filters tend to reduce, rather than remove, lethal contaminants such as lead.

Reverse osmosis systems DO remove lead but cannot do so intelligently – RO technology also removes all traces of essential minerals from your water, leaving it ‘dead.’ Reverse Osmosis Dead Water comes with its own health risks and is not recommended for long term use.
