Question: Can i drink the run water directly from sink!?
When i talked with my friends ,they said that the hot run water is clean to drink!.!.but i always drink the cold one which i will put it into microwave for 1 minutes then drink!.!.!.i am in new jersey!.!.will i sick of drinking the sink run water!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

I wouldn't use the hot water because it comes from the hot water heater where it has to be heated!. Those things have sediments for minerals in the water that collect and stay in there for years!. I would stay with the cold water!. Of course bottled water is the best but it is kinda expensive!. Maybe you should buy a filter for your faucet or a water pitcher that filters the water before you pour it in a glass!.!.You can get them at Walmart, K-mart, target or drug stores!.!.

Just let the cold water run for 60 seconds!. It is better for you than the hot!.

Pipes in homes contain unhealthy amounts of lead to drink, hot more likely than cold water!. It is widely believed that boiling water removes the lead!. Scientists warn it is quite the contrary, it increases its concentration!.
Older homes are more likely to have lead pipes!.

Lead can damage the brain and nervous system!.Www@FoodAQ@Com



I was told ions ago NOT to drink hot water from any tap as the pipes were made of lead!. When the hot water would run through it would absorb lead from the pipes and so on!. Now, this might have been the case when I was a child but most places have updated plumbing!.!.!."maybe"!. So, don't take a chance and just drink from the cold!. I grew up in Jersey!.!.!.the state does not make a difference it is what the water is flowing through!. Oh, wait!.!.!.actually the state might make a difference and where in Jersey you are located!. Like "smellcaucus"!.!.!.I would be afraid to drink that water!. lol!! just kidding!. Anyhow, I would just play it safe and drink from the cold tap!. And yes, bathroom tap water for some reason just simply tastes nasty!. Why the heck is that!? I just do not know!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Houses haven't been plumbed with lead pipes for MANY years now!. There's nothing in tap water that can be fixed by microwaving it!. We used to drink right out of the hose outside as kids, and the worst thing was getting a bug in your mouth! We have some of the most consistently healthy water available to us in our homes in the world!. We should be thankful we're not in an undeveloped country fighting for access to water!. Drink with confidence, and you can even make ice from tap water, just ask your Mom how!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
