Testing Your Water For Toxic Chemicals
The harsh truth is that not all water is made equal. The water we drink from our home tap supply might not be as safe as you think it is. Nearly 20% of our lead exposure comes from contaminated water. And there’s more than lead lurking in our drinking water, there may also be chemicals like arsenic, pesticides, and pharmaceutical drugs. While you can do an at-home water test, tests conducted by certified labs are always more accurate. If you want to run your water through an at-home test first, then buy a reliable one. You’ll want a kit that tests for bacteria, lead, chlorine, nitrates, and nitrites (Safewise).
