Countertop Water Filtration Systems Protect
Some people do not understand the
importance of kitchen countertop
water filtration systems. If
you are shopping for one, then I applaud your
efforts. Tell your family and friends.
Everyone needs the protection that they offer.
First, let me say that there is no feasible way that the
treatment facilities can stop using chlorine. If another
solution was found that was as effective, it would probably
have more drawbacks than chlorine.
Practically every health treatment has benefits and
risks. You have to weigh them. When the benefits
outweigh the risks, then you have a “safe” remedy.
Countertop water filtration systems and showerhead
filters are the remedies that defeat the risks
that accompany chlorination. And, as far as I know,
there are no drawbacks, other than the price that you pay
for an effective system, but $125 in the kitchen and $68
in the bathroom is not a big deal.
That’s just my opinion of course, but it seems to me that
everyone can afford that. People spend more than that on
a pair of tennis shoes. You do have to consider the cost
of replacement filters for countertop water filtration systems,
but you have to buy new tennis shoes every once in a while,
It's easy to find out how much you will spend on replacement
filters by viewing product performance data sheets. The
countertop water filtration systems post
performance data on their websites.
The best countertop water filtration systems cost less than
a dime a day. The best showerhead units cost about $7 per
month. It depends on how much water your family uses, but
that’s the average.
I mention a shower head system because your exposure to
chlorine and its by-products (THMs) are not limited to the
kitchen sink. THMs are gases and they are released into
the atmosphere of your home every time someone takes a
bath. Haven’t heard of THMs? Allow me to tell you
Trihalomethanes or THMs are released when chlorine reacts
with biological matter or in other words, when it kills
bacteria that cause waterborne illnesses. Sadly, THMs
There used to be some question in people’s minds about this,
but the latest research from Canada is about how much it costs
the country to care for these new cancer cases. Since,
they provide for the public’s healthcare, that’s an important
question to them.
The Canadian researchers estimate that more than 700 cases
of colorectal and bladder cancer are caused by exposure to
THMs, every single year. They have even identified areas
in the country where the risk is highest, because the amount of
exposure is higher.
Research in Thailand showed that the risk is much higher
among those who regularly swim in chlorinated pools. They
identified the risk as “unacceptable” and said something needed
to be done.
If you or your kids swim a lot, you can reduce the
risk by installing shower filters and
countertop water filtration systems. By limiting your
family’s exposure to THMs, you limit their risk.
