If you use tap water, there’s a chance it may contain chemicals linked to cancer and birth defects.
The chemicals are called phosphorous, nitrates and chloramines, and they’re the main ingredient in the popular bottled water industry.
They’ve been linked to birth defects, skin cancer and other health problems.
The problem is that the water used for drinking has been treated with chemicals from phosphorous and nitrates, which leech into the water when you use it.
The EPA estimates that about 20 percent of all drinking water supplies in the U.S. contain chemicals from the phosphorous-nitrate cycle, and some experts believe that this amount is even higher.
So, to combat the problem, the Environmental Protection Agency has set up a new task force to investigate the problem.
But experts say the problem goes beyond the drinking water.
It’s also a concern in a whole bunch of other industries.
The chemicals leech through soil, into the air and can be found in food, cosmetics, paints, plastics and more.
And these chemicals have been linked in some studies to neurological and birth defect problems, including a rare neurological condition in the brain.
The problem has become so big that the EPA recently issued a draft rule that would require all new water systems to include a monitoring system to detect the chemicals in the water supply.
It also would require companies to provide a daily list of the chemicals found in their drinking water and to report any issues that they find.
But some industry groups are opposed to these rules.
They say they are unnecessary and would increase the costs for the industry and would be ineffective.
In the meantime, the EPA says it has set out a list of chemicals that are in the drinking-water supply.
The list includes phosphorous (which can leech out of pipes) and nitrate (which is a type of fertilizer).
It also includes chloramines and chlorozene, which can leach into the soil and can cause birth defects in babies.
The EPA says the chemicals are safe and have not been linked with any health problems, but it says it’s important that companies know how to properly use their tap water.
So if you use bottled water, the next time you think about drinking it, remember this simple tip.
Keep your tap water clean.
