It seems as if every week, we are learning of some new contaminant in our drinking water system. The latest is fluoride, a mineral used to lower cavities in children. It is found in toothpaste, dentists administer it to patients in the dental chair, and most municipalities across the country place it in the water supply. Last Friday, the Associated Press reported that the U.S. Department of Health of Human Services may decide to lower the level of fluoride in most municipal drinking water throughout the country to minimize health problems.
Two out of five children have tooth streaking or spottiness because of excess fluoride. In extreme cases, teeth can be pitted by the mineral, even though many cases are so mild that only dentists can detect it. While the problem is generally considered cosmetic, people are taking notice. The splotchy tooth condition, called fluorosis, is unexpectedly common on adolescents aged 12 through 15, and the problem has grown since the 1980s.
Too much fluoride can also lead to crippling bone abnormalities and brittleness — just another reason for older women to watch what they drink.
The Kinetico K-5 Drinking Water Station can remove 96% of fluoride from your drinking water. It also almost completely removes chromium, perchlorate, lead, mercury, cadmium, copper, and any other contaminant in the water that is not hydrogen and oxygen — H2O—otherwise known as water.
By adding the volatile organic compounds (VOC) cartridge, your water will be free of pesticides, paints, cleaning supplies, and other materials. Opting for a Purefecta Guard, the Kinetico K5 will then remove 99.99999% of bacteria and 99.99% of viruses, generating bio-pure drinking water as certified by trusted third-party regulators like the Water Quality Association (WQA). In fact, the Kinetico K5 Drinking Water System is certified to remove more contaminants than any other system, and it can produce more than 40 gallons of drinking water daily. In the May 2010 issue of Consumer Reports, the Kinetico K5 ranked number-one among all reverse-osmosis drinking water systems.
The Kinetico K5 Drinking Water System is fashionable as well, offering elegantly dispensed water in a variety of colors and styles—right from your kitchen sink. For more information about the K5, please visit http://www.kinetico.com/KineticoSystems/DrinkingWaterSystems.aspx.
