A comprehensive survey of the drinking water for more than 28 million Americans has detected the widespread but low-level presence of pharmaceuticals and hormonally active chemicals.

Little was known about people's exposure to such compounds from drinking water, so Shane Snyder and colleagues at the Southern Nevada Water Authority in Las Vegas screened tap water from 19 US water utilities for 51 different compounds. The surveys were carried out between 2006 and 2007.

Water, next to oxygen is the most vital thing for our exsistence yet we even screw that up. Tap water from the avergage american faucet is dreadful. Unfortunately bottled water companies have no integrity either. The only solution is filtering your own water.
