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.

Dr Oz: PUR, Clear20 & Culligan
Doctor Oz also did a segment on the best way to clean your water. Is bottled water the best option? Or should you opt for Filtered Water? It turns out that one quarter of bottled water is actually just tap water, so how can you know if your bottled water has Chromium-6 in it or not? Unfortunately, there is no way of knowing. So the best option is to filter your own tap water. Dr Oz covered various types of water filters and methods for cleaning your water.
