Dr Oz: Is Your Water Causing Cancer? Water Safety & Filters


Dr Oz Water Filters

Dr Oz’s show on July 12, 2011 is called “Is Your Water Causing Cancer?”  Doctor Oz did a Tap Water Test in nineteen different kitchens across America including cities like Houston, Salt Lake City, Pensacola, Pittsburgh, Wichita Falls, Omaha and Riverside, California.  The Water Testing Kits were sent to Suburban Water Labs and the chemicals found in the water samples were revealed.  Some of the dangerous chemicals found included Chromium-6, Lead, Arsenic and Perchlorate.  Chromium-6 is already known to cause Cancer when you are exposed to it through the air you breathe, but the latest research shows that it is likely to also cause Cancer through water as well.  Nobody likes the sound of having Lead and Arsenic in their water supply, but even worse is the fact that these chemicals can cause Liver Cancer, Paralysis, Nerve Damage and Bladder Cancer.  You can get more information from the Safe Drinking Water Information System by entering your zip code into the tool at the end of this article: Dr Oz Water Safety.

    Does anybody know a good water filter (the pitcher sort) for well water? I’m now using Brita but I heard it’s not that good for well water.

    I’ve been drinking tap water my whole life and never have used a filter. Just as many people that drink bottled or filtered water have cancer also.
    Sometimes Oz’s show plays on the fears of people.
    Paranoid people love his show. lol
    The average person does many more things to their bodies that can give them cancer more than drinking tap water.
    Smoking,Drinking,Drugs,Stress and Pollution. It’s all around us.
