Launches New Pure and Clear Drinking Water Filters

Chicago, IL, December 22, 2010 --( offers Free Shipping and Handling on Pure & Clear Drinking Water Filters from December 16 to 22, 2010 for orders to the Continental US and Canada.

Natural health expert, Dr. Joseph Mercola, warns against toxic chemical disinfection byproducts (DBPs) in most municipal water supplies. DBPs are created when chlorine-based disinfectants – chlorine, chlorine dioxide, or chloramines – react with organic matter when added by local water treatment plants.

Dr. Mercola points out that if two or more of these unwanted DBPs and other contaminants exist at the same time in your tap water, the “synergistic toxicity” greatly magnifies the negative effects to your health.

The most common DBPs are trihalomethanes (THMs), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and haloacetic acids (HAAs). THMs and HAAs have been found to cause cancer and liver disease in laboratory animals, while HAAs have been associated with central nervous system depression and skin irritation.

A comprehensive study of U.S. drinking water also revealed that tap water may contain a number of hormonally active chemicals, including a potential human carcinogen and an endocrine disruptor.

Key to a healthy lifestyle, pure water is a component of all bodily fluids -- blood, digestive juices, lymph, sweat, and urine, among others. “Your body relies on water to support chemical reactions that regulate daily physiological functions such as blood and temperature regulation, detoxification, digestion, and respiration,” says Dr. Mercola.

Dr. Mercola teamed up with a company specializing in advanced water treatment products to produce two models of Pure & Clear Drinking Water Filters -- the Countertop and Under Counter filtration systems.

These two easy-to-install systems use an advanced selective filtration process that combines carbon filtration, ion-exchange, and sub-micron filtration to remove 99.9 percent of chlorine, cysts, lead, THMs, and VOCs while retaining beneficial minerals like calcium and potassium.

Pure & Clear Drinking Water Filters are currently undergoing certification by the California Department of Health, but are expected to exceed their expectations. offers Free Shipping and Handling to the Continental U.S. and Canada with any order of Pure & Clear Water Filter Bundles until December 22, 2010, 11:59 PM CST.
