What’s up with pharmaceuticals in our water?

Did you know that America is the most over medicated society in the world? And what do most people do when they have expired medications….that’s right they dump them right in the toilet. What is so tragic about this whole situation is that city water plants were never intended to take out pharmaceuticals from our water supply. This is a relatively new problem that has developed over the years. There are all kinds of studies now showing that pharmaceutical byproducts are causing all kinds of unintended consequences. We have all heard the horror stories about mutant fish, kids going through puberty at very young ages and many new problems that we have never seen before. It’s really just not feasible for city water plants to remove these pharmaceutical by-products simply because it would be so expensive. But there is a solution to these problems…a Culligan reverse osmosis drinking water system with our exclusive “total defense” filtration cartridge. Regardless of what gets into our water supplies or who puts it there, Culligan can it out and make sure your water is safe, clean and delicious. Most of us have enough challenges in our day-to-day life. Chemicals and pharmaceuticals in our water supplies is a problem we can certainly do without. We recommend a water test from Culligan to discover if there are any harmful substances in your water. We as a society do not yet know the long-term effects of these compounds in our water. In reality, Americans are not becoming healthier. In fact, the opposite is true. As long as that is the case, you can bet there will be even more pharmaceutical by-products in our tap water. It is a viscous cycle. Once again you can either be a filter, or you can let Culligan filter your water for you. The choice is yours to make.
