Tap Water Unsafe in U.S.

Tourist advisory: when visiting your friends or relatives in the United States, don’t drink tap water, don’t use it for cooking or washing. Tap water in the United States is unsafe even when it “meets government standards”. Well-documented problems include antiquated water distribution systems and large amounts of pesticides, industrial solvents and metals as well as other poisons in small but potentially harmful concentrations. Certain categories of people (children, pregnant women) are more in danger than others.

Drinking tap water in the U.S. can pose serious health risks even in better-off neighborhoods in cities and towns accross America.
