The Dr. Ardis Show: Americans unaware that the water they use contains a LOT of CHEMICALS – Brighteon.TV

Americans are unaware that the water they drink and use every day is full of chemicals, according to Texas-based chiropractor Dr. Bryan Ardis.

“Most people have no idea that the water they are actually consuming, bathing in or using in their gardens actually have a lot of chemicals,” host Dr. Bryan Ardis said during the July 19 episode of “The Dr. Ardis Show” on Brighteon.TV. Matt Haines and Michael Winer, both from GrowMax Water USA, joined the chiropractor as guests.

Ardis said he had done some testing on his own water supply and his city’s tap water using reverse osmosis filtering. He discovered some problems and concerning issues in the course of this endeavor.

According to Ardis, companies manufacturing PFAS and other chemicals Americans are being exposed to in the environment are faster than the government agencies such as the EPA who are testing if these chemicals are harmful or not. While there are 5,000 chemicals that have been examined for their toxic effects, more than 15,000 of these substances hadn’t been studied yet.

Recognizing the issue Ardis brought up, Haines acknowledged that getting quality water has been an ongoing challenge for most Americans – especially with the discovery of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). Also known as forever chemicals, the cause various health issues including liver damage, thyroid disease, decreased fertility, high cholesterol, obesity, hormone suppression and cancer.

Haines added that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed a maximum allowable amount of forever chemicals in tap water supplies. Given this, he noted that this is a very serious issue Americans should be aware of.

Effective water filters are key to clean water

According to Haines, the best way to limit exposure to these chemicals is at the point of use. Filtering water also plays a key role in growing food, he continued. Winer then introduced the GrowMax Water filtration system for home gardeners. (Related: Water filtration is an essential component to a healthy lifestyle.)

Winer recounted that he had been in the water treatment system for 25 years. Haines, his longtime friend, has been an organic gardener advocating health and wellness for years now. The two then joined to establish GrowMax Water USA after realizing that “the tap water [they] were using on [their] gardens not only contained chlorine, but many other unacceptable contaminants.”

He explained that GrowMax Water’s main filtration system uses activated carbon block technology that has been around for many years. The system is a tried and proven technology for absorption of this type of chemicals, including volatile organic contaminants (VOCs), which he and Haines have re-designed for garden use.

“[The VOCs] adhere to the carbon as it’s flowing through the carbon filter, Winer explained. “We’ve designed our filtration systems with certain restrict flow restrictions in there that give it more contact time. So, the water has more contact time with the carbon media and that allows it to reduce, remove and hopefully eliminate as much as possible this type of chemicals.”

Haines cited that the use of the GrowMax Water filtration system resulted in healthier and more drought-tolerant vegetables and fruits that had strong roots. He also observed bigger yields and harvests in organic gardens that adopted the system.

“It’s water [that] definitely makes a difference,” Haines told Ardis. “For gardeners, you’re always focused on the best soil, the best seeds, making sure you got the proper amount of sun. But water has been something that’s probably the most overlooked, critical item for growing organic. So now we’ve created this solution and it just it works great.”
