After a yearlong research looking into California water data from 2010 to 2015, Dr. Tasha Stoiber found that every day Californians are exposed to contaminants that can cause cancer, one drop at a time.
The Environmental Working Group study found certain contaminants could contribute to tens of thousands of cancer cases in California over the course of 70 years.
"Estimated 15,000 cases from drinking water exposure," said Stoiber.
Now, would boiling water kill these contaminants? The answer is no, boiling water will only kill bacteria! Our best bet according to this study is to filter your water. But not everyone has access to filtered water.
