According to this report published in January by the Environmental Working Group (EWG), 173 million people – around half of all Americans – have been exposed to radiation in their drinking water. Â That means an increase in the possibility of developing certain types of cancer and can also have a detrimental effect on fetal development. Â
The “Erin Brockovich” Chemical
By studying 50,000 water systems countrywide, the EWG found that millions of people across 50 states are drinking water that containsÂ radioactive contaminants; including the most commonly-occurring radioactive element, radium.
In Texas â€“ one of the worst affected states – up to 80% of homes are supplied with water containing potentially dangerous levels of radium.
Similarly, the cancer-causing chemical Chromium-6, the so-called “Erin Brockovich Chemical,” has been found in unsafe levels nationwide.
In terms of whatâ€™s in our drinking water, it doesnâ€™t get much more serious. Â Â
The Tyent Chromium-6 Filter
So what can you do to protect you and your family? Â Standard carbon house filters do not remove Chromium-6. Â In fact, there is no standard household water filter that eliminates this dangerous chemical. Â
Tyent engineers have been locked in research and production to manufacture what no other company has before â€“ a filter that removes radium and Chromium-6.
Our Chromium-6 Filter is a 4-stage filtration system that removes 99.9% of Chromium-6 and 90-95% of flourideÂ without filtering out essential minerals or wasting water.Â Compare that to most other filters, which only remove about 50% of fluoride (and any that remove more than 50% also take out the essential minerals as well).
Certified and Safe
These are worrying times, when it comes to water safety. Â Thereâ€™s no guarantee that weâ€™ve reached peak-scare about whatâ€™s in our water, but the news that half of all Americans are drinking dangerously contaminated water surely must be approaching it.
While this recent news poses a big, big problem for water safety, Tyent Water Ionizers offer a solution. Our customer care team is here to discuss the best options for you and also to take pre-orders for the Chromium-6 Filter.Â Â The filters are available now for pre-order and will begin to ship in about 3-4 weeks.
