American Air and Water
Ameican Water Supply:
It is important for us to consider the source of our water supply. There are many threats to water quality: severe weather, chronic pollution, leaky ponds, etc. In spite of all the good reasons to be concerned about drinking water safety, resorting to bottles is not a sensible reflex. "People think bottled water is safer, but there is zero evidence that is true. The quality of water in city tap water is regulated far more closely than bottled water," said Steve Fleischli, director and senior attorney for the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) Water Program in Los Angeles. The following video offers a step in the right direction.
American Air Quality:
You inhale approximately 15,000 or more quarts of air per day. Pollutants like tiny airborne particles and groundlevel ozone can trigger respiratory problems, especially for people with asthma. Some toxic chemicals released in the air such as benzene or vinyl chloride are highly toxic and can cause cancer, birth defects, long term injury to the lungs, as well as brain and nerve damage. Indoor air quality is major factor too. Americans spend about 90% of our time indoors. At work, at school and at home, if you are like most people, you spend almost all of your time inside. The quality of indoor air can be two to five times (and even up to 100 times) more polluted than the worst outside air. The following video offers a way to ensure your indoor air quality is at it's best.
