Water is essential for our survival, but what happens when it's contaminated with harmful substances? We have a not-so-new but potentially hazardous substance to keep an eye out for in our water supply - lithium.
Recent studies suggest that exposure to high levels of lithium during pregnancy can have adverse effects on the developing brain of the fetus, causing prenatal autism.
But that's not all - other studies have found that lithium exposure impairs thyroid and kidney function, and has been associated with miscarriages and cardiac malformations in newborns caused by consumption of drinking water containing harmful levels of lithium while pregnant.
While early studies suggest that lithium can have harmful effects on our bodies, more research is needed to confirm this. In the meantime, it's important to take action to protect yourself and your family from potentially harmful contaminants in your drinking water. One effective solution is to invest in a reverse osmosis system, which have been proven to be effective in removing harmful contaminants like lithium, VOCs, chlorine, pesticides, odors, copper, iron, algae, fungi, arsenic, viruses, and many other contaminants commonly found in water sources, from your drinking water.
Reverse Osmosis Systems
Reverse osmosis (RO) systems are a simple and effective way to ensure that you and your family are drinking clean and purified water. Thanks to its multi-stage filtration process and semi-permeable membrane, RO systems are highly effective at filtering out lithium from water. The system forces water through a fine passageway that only allows water molecules to pass through, while bacteria, organics, and other contaminants like lithium are left behind.
One thing’s for sure, the study on lithium and autism highlights the importance of clean drinking water, especially for pregnant women. By investing in a reverse osmosis system, you can have peace of mind that your drinking water is safe and free from potential risks. So, consider investing in an Aquasure Premier Reverse Osmosis System today and give your baby (and loved ones) the gift of clean, safe, and pure drinking water.
And if you're pregnant or planning to become pregnant, it's crucial to consult with your healthcare provider about the potential risks of exposure to lithium and how to ensure you're drinking safe and purified water.
