Giveaway! Royal Berkey With PF-2 Fluoride Filters ($300 Value)

Should A Two Year Old Take Birth Control?

How about heart medications containing nitroglycerin and anti-psychotics such as lithium? Obviously, the answer is no, but it happens every day without our knowledge or consent.

In a study conducted by the Southern Nevada Water Authority, researchers found that drinking water is often laced with a wide variety of active pharmaceuticals and hormonally active chemicals. These drugs come from the 271 million pounds of prescription medications legally dumped into into our waterways by manufacturers, plus the substantial burden added by consumers.

Consumers are considered the biggest contributors to the contamination. We consume drugs, then excrete what our bodies don’t absorb. Other times, we flush unused drugs down toilets. The AP also found that an estimated 250 million pounds of pharmaceuticals and contaminated packaging are thrown away each year by hospitals and long-term care facilities.

Researchers have found that even extremely diluted concentrations of drugs harm fish, frogs and other aquatic species. Also, researchers report that human cells fail to grow normally in the laboratory when exposed to trace concentrations of certain drugs. Some scientists say they are increasingly concerned that the consumption of combinations of many drugs, even in small amounts, could harm humans over decades.

U.S. News & World Report / Science: Tons of Released Drugs Taint U.S. Water (emphasis mine)

Municipal water filtration systems are not equipped to remove these contaminants, but there is a filter I trust to do it for less than it costs to filter a gallon of water using a Brita pitcher. Drumroll please . . .

Introducing Berkey Water Filters!

Giveaway! Royal Berkey With PF-2 Fluoride Filters ($300 Value)If you’ve never heard of them, Berkey claims to be the most powerful and economical water purification systems in the world. Based on corroborating studies from the University of Arizona, Spectrum Labs, and the LA Environmental Toxicology Laboratory, I believe them.

Not only does it remove chlorine and it’s toxic byproducts (oh my goodness, have you SEEN what dioxin can do to a person?), you can order a special additional filter that removes fluorides also. In case you’re wondering why that might be a good idea, please read this post.

Berkey purifiers also remove 99.99999% of pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites while extracting chemicals including herbicides, pesticides, organic solvents, VOCs, detergents, cloudiness, silt and sediment.

Cadmium, chromium, copper, lead, aluminum, mercury and other dangerous heavy metals are also removed (95%), as well as nitrates and nitrites, without removing beneficial minerals! Because there are literally too many pharmaceuticals floating around to realistically test for, Berkey does not make claims regarding pharmaceuticals. However, drug molecules are the same size or larger than the VOCs, which Berkey is certified to remove. Since the main issue affecting effectiveness is whether the pores of the filter are small enough to grab the molecule, I feel fairly confident that pharmaceuticals are removed. Add to that that  activated carbon seems to have a particular affinity for drugs – it is often used in emergency settings to filter harmful drugs out of the blood of a poisoned patient – and you could say I sleep well at night regarding this issue.

Would you like to experience the bliss that is crystal clear, amazing tasting water? Good, because I’m giving a Royal Berkey away with the optional fluoride filters!

  16. Tai says:

    I am looking at purchasing a Berkey. Do you know/understand the difference in the filters? There’s the ceramic, the black and the PF-2. Not sure what is the best. Anything you would add on the subject would be appreciated. Thanks!

    • Heather says:

      I don’t know what the ceramic is, but the black is an activated charcoal filter that gets most of the stuff, and the PF2 is a supplemental filter that’s supposed to get the fluoride.

  17. Norman says:

    Excellent! I’ve been using a crown berkey for 2 years and it’s been working great for me. Get the PF2 filter to get the rid of fluoride from the water.

  18. says:

    I love this water filter much!
