It’s human nature to discount or ignore issues that are not right in front of us. You pay attention to the bus that cut you off in traffic, but are you thinking about chemical disruptions that may be happening in your body right now?

Endocrine disruptors are hormone-altering chemicals that do exactly as they say: they disrupt important bodily functions that are driven by your #endocrine system. According to the Environmental Working Group’s (EWG) website, endocrine disruptors can be responsible for “increasing production of certain hormones; decreasing production of others; imitating hormones; turning one hormone into another; interfering with hormone signaling; telling cells to die prematurely; competing with essential nutrients; binding to essential hormones; {and} accumulating in organs that produce hormones.”

Of the EWG’s “Dirty Dozen” #endocrinedisruptors, water-borne contaminants are the easiest to avoid by using an NSF-tested and certified water filter. All Multipure Drinking Water Systems are certified by NSF International to reduce the greatest number of #contaminants, including many of those on the EWG’s Dirty Dozen list. BPA, atrazine, lead, arsenic, mercury, fire retardants, and pesticides are reduced by using a #Multipure Drinking Water System.

If you have questions about the #DirtyDozen, and if you want to learn more about how to reduce your exposure to these and other dangerous contaminants, contact today. We can help you determine your exposure and help you decide which Multipure Drinking Water System is right for you.
