Chromium 6: Steps You Can Take to Protect You and Your Family!


In recent news, it has been disclosed that the drinking water in at least 138 New Jersey towns is contaminated with unsafe levels of Chromium 6, the toxin made famous by the Erin Brockovich movie. This toxin has been known to cause issues ranging from cancer, reproductive problems and even liver failure when exposed over long periods of time. You may be asking, "what can I possibly do to help lessen the risk of exposure to this extremely harmful substance for myself and my family?"  Well, below is some information on Chromium 6 and options you have for in-home solutions to protect your drinking water.



The Environmental Working Group, also know as EWG, is a non-profit organization that strives to provide information to empower people to "live healthier lives in a healthier environment." EWG researched the different types of in-home water filtration systems and broke down the search options to include filter type, filter technology and the contaminants they are certified to reduce. 


Here is a link specific to filtration systems that filter out Chromium 6 - http://www.ewg.org/research/ewgs-water-filter-buying-guide?system_type=&technology=&contamcode=1080&submit_ty_1=Search


EWG has provided an interactive map with information pertaining to the test results for Chromium 6 within the continental United States. I have included a link below.
