Are You Drinking Plastic Chemicals From Your Tap? (Plastics Series: Part II)

Yet another unpalatable fact about America’s drinking water emerged upon publication of a report into the presence of microscopic plastic fibers in an astonishing 94 percent of samples tested.

Plastic is on the menu for nearly all of us.
Global Problem

It’s not just America that is swallowing untold quantities of plastics from industry, homes and manufacturing; around 80 percent of samples worldwide tested positive.  If it’s in our water, then it’s in our food.  If it’s our food, then our bodies are awash with plastic fibers of unknown origin.  

Plastic Forever

It gets worse.  Plastic doesn’t biodegrade.  Instead, it just gets smaller and smaller until it’s a tiny particle measured by nanometer (one nanometer is one-billionth of a meter).  Scientists have observed that a fiber of that size can cross through the intestinal wall and migrate to the organs.

It’s all a bit like a horror movie, isn’t it?  Except it’s real, and we’re all consuming plastics on a daily basis.

“This should knock us into our senses. We knew that this plastic is coming back to us through our food chain. Now we see it is coming back to us through our drinking water. Do we have a way out?”

~ Muhammad Yunus, Nobel Peace Prize laureate

How to Reduce Our Plastic-Load

To reduce the plastics in our daily diet, on a municipal level, water has to be treated differently to remove more plastic fibers.  On a personal level, we need to look at how we cook and prepare food. How we heat it.  How we eat it.  How we clean our houses.  How we wash our clothes.  All of these everyday activities add to our plastic fiber-load.

But one of the biggest factors is the water we drink.  

Drink Clean With a Water Ionizer

We know that we should drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and healthy.  But recent years have taught us that water from our taps is not always clean and safe.  This report augments those fears and underlines the necessity for us to seek out safer water.  

A Tyent water ionizer has incredible filtration capabilities – the same as a kidney dialysis machine.  Our filters remove over 200 contaminants, including up to 99% of lead, mercury, beryllium, uranium and fluoride.*

Drinking naturally hydrogen-rich water from your own water ionizer gives you peace of mind.  You know the water your family is drinking is safe, clean and healthful.  

You can cook and even clean with water from your ionizer, potentially reducing plastic-fiber load further.
