Why Reverse Osmosis Is NOT the Answer to Chromium-6

The cancer-causing contaminant Chromium-6, brought to the public gaze by Erin Brockovich, is at levels exceeding public health goals in 50 states.

Chromium-6 – Here to Stay?

Millions of people are trying to find a workable solution to protect themselves and their families and to avoid drinking contaminated water.  

What Reverse Osmosis Water Does to the Pipeline

A reverse osmosis water system is sometimes touted as a possible solution on both a domestic and municipal level.  After all, it removes contaminants and that’s the goal, right?

Unfortunately, reverse osmosis is not a solution on either front.  On a city-wide basis, aside from the prohibitive cost of building the plant, the stripped-back water – though admittedly free of contaminants – is corrosive.  Why is this a problem for anyone drinking it?  In short, corrosive water can cause the leaching of dangerous metals such as copper and lead from water pipes.  

So you don’t get Chomium-6, but you might still end up with drinking water that isn’t safe to drink.  

But what about a domestic reverse osmosis machine?  No pipes to worry about; the water is cleaned up, and then you drink it.  That’s got to work, right?

No, it doesn’t, though.  Reverse osmosis water is produced by forcing water through a semi-permeable membrane.  The process removes contaminants but crucially, it also removes essential minerals that our bodies need to survive and thrive.  This is no insignificant concern: the World Health Organization made a statement in recent years that reverse osmosis water, “has a definite adverse influence on the animal and human organism.”

What Reverse Osmosis Water Does to You

The demineralization of the water has another adverse effect as well: it wants to be mineral-rich again.  To achieve this, reverse osmosis water tries to do to your body what it does to the water pipes — it leaches minerals.  

That’s right.  RO water tries to stabilize itself by stealing minerals from your bones, teeth and wherever else it finds them.  There’s no doubt that treating water by reverse osmosis is an excellent short-term fix in places where water infrastructure has completely broken down, but it’s not a long-term solution.  

But Chromium-6 isn’t going anywhere, so what can you do?
