Water and Your Child’s Health

  Today I want to talk about the single most important issue when it comes to water purity; children’s health. I think you will agree that there is nothing more important than protecting your child from potentially dangerous toxins. One way that some children ingest toxins is simply by consuming city water because many water systems across the country have been found to contain harmful chemicals.
