I hate to break it to you, but since we live in an extremely toxic world, your water probably sucks.
Regardless of whether you’re on well or city water, it’s likely contaminated with countless man-made chemicals.
This guide is dedicated to giving you as many tools and resources as possible to find out what’s in your water.
