Industrial chemicals known as polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) have contaminated our water systems. PFAS cause multiple forms of cancer, thyroid disease, liver disease, and chronic kidney disease. PFAS are called “forever chemicals” because they never break down. 98% of Americans already have PFAS in their blood, and PFAS will continue to poison us forever. You can protect yourself and your family. Proper water filters can remove PFAS, as well as heavy metals, chloride, fluoride, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other synthetic chemicals. Never drink tap water. Avoid bottled water. Purify your own water. You must protect yourself. Nobody will do it for you.
Filtering your drinking water is the most effective way to proactively protect your home and family against PFAS. Keep in mind that not all water filters remove PFAS. Look for systems that are NSF or IAPMO certified for NSF-P473, which remove all forms of PFAS. Please see recommended filter systems below.

Dark Waters is a 2019 must see documentary that demonstrates the deaths and sickness in a community due to runoff from a DuPont chemical plant, contaminating local water supplies with a particularly lethal form of PFAS, known as perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA). By the end of the time period covered by the movie, DuPont has settled 3000 lawsuits related to PFOAs, paying out over $670 million. We are told that PFOAs are found in 98% of Americans, and Bilott is pursuing a lawsuit on behalf of everyone in the United States.
“The system is rigged. They want us to think they’ll protect us,
but that’s a lie. We protect us. We do. Nobody else.
Not the companies, not the scientists, not the government. Us.”
– Mark Ruffalo, Dark Waters
