Ketchikan's water is more contaminated than you think!

When consumed in drinking water HAA are easily absorbed into the bloodstream. Links have been made between exposure to HAA concentrations above the maximum contaminent level and injury to the liver, kidney, eyes, nerves and the reproductive system. There is not a significant risk of HAAs in drinking water to be absorbed through skin.

Animal studies have shown that prolonged exposure to DCA and TCA in drinking water resulted in liver cancer.

It's a VERY simple fix: all you need is an activated characol filter, so why are we paying GOOD money to be poisoned?!

Info is from government of Saskatchewan health dept.

Thank you.
