Dr Oz: Drinking Water Safety
Dr Oz did a show called How Safe Is Your Water? Did you know that chemicals from cleaning and personal care products may be tainting our water supply? Lisa Jackson, EPA Administrator, stated that this happened because the products build up over time, however, these chemicals are being monitored. She admitted that the EPA did not know a lot about this issue but they are keeping track of over 84,000 chemicals. (While that’s a big number, you have to realize there are A LOT of products out there!)
