    It is kind of scary, for sure, when drinking water these things will surely pop up in the mind...sihi!
    What we are going to do... does boiling the water helps to reduce some??

    Hi sihi,
    I happened to read this article yday..I stopped drinking tap water when we moved to LA county as the tap water is believed to contain soooo many contaminants..

    But its disgusting and scary to find out abt thses reports..

    Cheers

    Its really scary esp having a baby at home and drinking this contam water.. Will boil water so that atleast some of the contam might be inactivated..
