Natural News: ZeroWater filters are the best Jugs on the market removing ‘Heavy Metals’!

Natural News tested counter top water filters for their ability to remove toxic heavy metals and elements with radioactive isotopes.

The reason why this is important becomes clear when you look at the info-graphic from the article:

The following brands were tested:

  • ZeroWater
  • Pur
  • Brita Maxtra
  • Seychelle
  • Culligan
  • Mavea
  • Waterman Portable Alkaline Water Purifier

They tested mainly for the removal of :

  • Aluminum
  • Copper
  • Arsenic
  • Strontium
  • Cadmium
  • Cesium
  • Mercury
  • Lead
  • Uranium

Have a look here for a video which demonstrates how Mr Mike Adams labs tested all water filters for their effectiveness in terms of removing heavy metals.

Recommendations and conclusions

Based on the laboratory analysis completed here at Natural News, I can only recommend two water filters in the category of countertop “pitcher” filters.
