Why You Shouldn’t Let Your Child Drink “Toxic” Contaminated Tap Water

Are you tired of your kids acting like little monsters? Well, it might not be entirely their fault. It turns out that drinking contaminated water can affect your child's brain development, making them prone to behavioral problems, lower IQ scores, and other health issues.

As parents, we always want the best for our children, and ensuring that they have access to clean and safe drinking water is crucial for their health and development. However, it's not always easy to tell if our tap water is actually safe. Just because it looks and tastes fine doesn't mean it's free from harmful chemicals like lead, pesticides, bacteria, mercury, and lithium. In fact, it could be a veritable "toxic waste" dump without us even knowing it!

These harmful contaminants can negatively impact a child's cognitive abilities, attention span, and behavior, and in severe cases, it can even lead to developmental disorders such as autism and ADHD.

Lead is detrimental to brain development, as even small amounts of exposure can lead to decreased IQ scores, learning disabilities, and behavioral problems. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), it is estimated that lead is present in the plumbing of more than 10 million homes in the United States, and homes built before 1986 are more likely to have lead pipes, fixtures, and solder. Kids are particularly at risk, and pregnant women should also watch out, as lead can harm the developing fetus.

Pesticides can be concerning for little brains. Found in agricultural areas, they're linked to developmental delays and neurobehavioral effects in children. And if you live in an area where pesticides are sprayed heavily, their risk is even higher.

Bacteria like E. coli and Salmonella can turn your child's tummy into a rollercoaster, causing dehydration and affecting their cognitive abilities. If they're exposed to these hazardous pathogens repeatedly, they could have long-term health issues and developmental delays.

Mercury can also be harmful to brain development, particularly in young children and fetuses. Exposure to high levels of mercury can cause developmental delays, cognitive impairment, and behavioral problems.

Even lithium, which is used in some medications and found naturally in some water sources, can affect brain development at high levels. So, it's important to know what's in your water and take steps to keep your little ones' brains healthy.

Yikes! It’s scary to think that something as essential as drinking water can be harmful to our children's health and development.

So, what can you do to protect your little ones?

One solution is to invest in a reliable water filtration system, like Aquasure’s Premier Series Reverse Osmosis system. This 4-stage system features a semi-permeable membrane to filter out impurities, including lead, pesticides, bacteria, lithium, and many other harmful contaminants. It's an affordable and effective way to ensure that your family is drinking safe, clean water.

Not only will an RO system remove potentially dangerous contaminants from your water, but it'll also purify your water, giving it a crisp, refreshing taste. You can finally say goodbye to that weird aftertaste you've been ignoring for years.

So, don't wait for your child to fall sick before you realize the importance of clean drinking water. Invest in an RO system today to safeguard your loved ones from the harmful contaminants lurking in your tap water.

Now, you can finally give your kids the gift of clean water without having to resort to buying bottled water. Trust me; your kids will thank you for it. Just think, they might even start acting like little angels… well, maybe not, but at least their brains will be healthier.

With Aquasure, you won't have to resort to buying bottled water or installing a complex filtration system that requires a team of engineers. Our whole house filtration systems are also affordable, effective, and designed to meet the needs of every household. By choosing Aquasure, you're choosing the health and safety of your family's drinking water.

Apart from an RO system, there are other steps you can take to protect your children's health. You can encourage them to wash their hands regularly, especially before eating or drinking, and teach them not to drink water from unknown sources. And if all else fails, you can always resort to the classic parental tactic of bribing them with their favorite snacks and drinks - just make sure it's with clean water, of course. Because nothing says "I love you" like a bag of chips and a glass of pure, contaminant-free water.
