A significant source of many toxic elements to which individuals are exposed may be in drinking water. Is your water safe? There are serious health problems associated with naturally elevated Arsenic levels in drinking water in different parts of the world. Lead is another potentially serious drinking water problem as lead can be introduced into drinking water by old pipes in homes or by old plumbing systems bringing water to houses. Additional metals regulated by the EPA include Aluminum, Antimony, Barium, Beryllium, Cadmium, Chromium, Copper, Iron, Manganese, Mercury, Nickel, Selenium, Thallium, Uranium and Zinc. pH is an important parameter to check because acidic water may cause corrosion in water pipes and leach metals such as lead and copper into the water you drink. Fluoride in water is a controversial element which can adversely affect health at relatively low concentrations. To assure clean water quality, you should test your water for these elements.
It should be noted that whether the originating source of the water is from a municipal regulated water supply or a private water supply, it is quite common for drinking water to become contaminated even after it reaches the home plumbing system. High acidic water and/or deteriorating home plumbing can allow heavy metals to leach from pipes. As a result of contamination, excessive levels of some metals in drinking water may have a deleterious effect upon certain individuals with predisposed sensitivities, or may also contribute to further elevation or imbalances of levels already found within the body.
