The truth is, we need water more than anything. Yet, water can either heal us… or it can make us sick!

Did you know there are 2,100 known water contaminants? Including chlorine, fluoride, pesticides, herbicides, endocrine disruptors, glyphosate, and nitrates, plus others, they can cause cancer, allergies, hormone imbalances, respiratory issues, and much more.

Our world is more contaminated than ever, so now it’s more important than ever to ensure we’re drinking and bathing in clean, uncontaminated water.

On today’s #AskWardee, I’ll share the details on which whole house water filtration system we chose… and why! Plus, I’ll give you options if you can’t or aren’t able to use a whole house system. You might be surprised at the number of options and the affordability!
