    This comment section is filled with rejects. Think about it….. you shower with the water, cook, brush your teeth, drink it. Honestly fucked how America is a lab for rats. This isn’t even to mention what goes on with the food!!?. But what do I know?

    Look our water has ammonia and chlorine to kill the crap that will kill us almost instantly the chemicals kill us but not as fast as untreated water. If you want safe water you have to jave a water softner with a carbon filter for the whole house and not the ones from home depot and lowes those are utter garbage look up the Morrison plumbing supply house one . words of wisdom from a journeyman plumber who protects our homes and lives everyday

    I feel like there’s a lack of information here. Yea. Radium.. sure. I’d say it’s carcinogenic.
    But you mention a simple water filter. So any water filter? And if I have the right one, it’s that easy? Nothing else.

    I feel like there’s more to this whole thing that we should know about.

    Really , Really, now millenials are scared of getting cancer from drinking tap water …GTF out of here!
    Shit When I was a kid we drank water from a garden hose that had spiders and insects on it and our bath water came from a well that was next to a nuclear power plant.

    Their spinning the truth. A while back their saying don't eat tuna , found to have high levels of Mercury. In reality tuna travel great miles and their contaminated with radioactive Isotopes, cancer. Now their saying don't drink water in certain areas, because of some.mumble jungle, reality it's cesium-137 radioactive cancer producing isotopes from Fukushima.
