New tool for avoiding contaminants in drinking water

First the bad news: Data recently compiled by the Environmental Working Group shows that the vast majority of American drinking water supplies have issues with contaminants. Out of 50,000 utilities studies, 40,000 tested positive for cancer-causing chemicals and 19,000 had lead levels high enough to potentially harm children. That’s depressing…

But now for the good news: They have created a website where A) you can enter your zip code and see results for your local tap water, and B) find the best water filters to reduce your exposure.

The website is here:

This work was done by the same heroes that produce the yearly “Dirty Dozen” and “Clean Fifteen” lists to help us know when it matters most to buy organic produce. If you value their information, consider supporting them. Thanks, Environmental Working Group–we appreciate you!
