Tap Water and Food Allergies

Tap Water SinkThese days, it seems that more and more people are suffering from everything to nut allergies, gluten sensitivities and lactose intolerance.  Now researchers believe that these health issues may come from drinking tap water.

According to Mother News Network (MNN).com, a study published in the December 2012 issue of the Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology revealed that high levels of dichlorophenol in the body are associated with food allergies.

This chemical often gets used in agricultural pesticides as well as consumer insect and weed control products.  It is also used to chlorinate the water that most people get from their faucets.

The lead author of this study, allergist Elina Jerschow, believes that the higher prevalence of food allergies is linked to the increased use of dichlorophenol-containing pesticides.  Dicholorophenol may weaken food tolerance in some people and cause the allergies that some estimates suggest affect over 15 million Americans.

Polar Station water and ice vending machines may help beleaguered consumers get the hydration they need, minus the allergy-causing chemicals.  Using an eight-stage filtration process that includes dechlorination, our kiosks – which use local water sources – make pure and delicious water products that are good for the whole family and for the planet, too.

Most bottled water gets produced at industrial plants that devour precious natural resources.  And once the water itself gets bottled, still more natural resources get used to transport it to store shelves.  All of this energy use costs both the consumer and the earth.
