3) Water Quality
Contaminated drinking water, runoff from industrial areas, and increased use of fertilizers can all lead to health problems. To reduce exposure, make sure to filter your water, test the water in your area regularly, and buy food grown without pesticides or chemicals. Additionally, invest in a home water testing kit to monitor the water in your home.
Our food choices can have a big impact on our health, as environmental factors like pesticides, hormones, and other chemicals can find their way into our meals. Eating organic and locally grown food can help reduce your exposure to these pollutants. Look for labels like “Certified Organic” and “Grown Without Pesticides” when shopping.
