Our Body
The human body is composed of approximately 70% water. Water plays a big role in the body including digestion, absorption, circulation, excretion, nutrients transportation and controlling body temperature.

It’s important to drink at least 8-ounce glasses of quality water each day to replace the water in the body

Our Water
Most people assume that when they turn on their kitchen tap, they are getting clean, safe, healthy drinking water. Unfortunately, this is often not the case. Regardless of the source of tap water, it is vulnerable to a number of different types of impurities. Some undesirable substances found in water, including radon, fluoride, and arsenic, iron, lead, copper, and other heavy metals can occur naturally.

Other contaminants, such as fertilizer, asbestos, cyanides, herbicides, pesticides, and industrial chemicals, may leach into ground water through the soil, or into any tap water from plumbing pipes. Still other substances, including chlorine, lime, phosphate, soda ash and aluminum sulfate are intentionally added to public water supplies to kill bacteria, adjust pH and eliminate cloudiness. In addition, water can contain biological contaminants, including viruses, bacteria and parasites.

The rain falling in the Lower Mainland is quite acidic which helps create the highly corrosive water used throughout the area. It dissolved aluminum from the ground it runs through; asbestos, cadmium and iron from the municipal supply pipes; and finally copper and lead from the home plumbing system.

Hard water contain relatively high concentration of minerals calcium and magnesium that prevent soap from lathering and result in filming sediment being deposited on hair and skin or anything that comes into regular contact with water. Study found that calcium found in hard water is not good for the heart, arteries or bones.
Calcium may come from galvanized pipes and it’s a Toxic heavy metal. This type of pipe may present in older buildings that have not been renovated.

In that case, What May Happen ?
