can drinking tap water cause problems ?
I live in Toronto, Canada. I am drinking tap water. Water treatment by corporation in Toronto is considered very good and tap water is considered very safe for drinking. But my friend's visit has made me thinking
My friend came to visit me and his wife informed me about the chlorin contained in tap water.
She had filtered watrer from her home and got some water from my tap in different glass. She poured few drops of a liquid she had (I dont know what liquid was that). After 30 seconds or so, tap water started turning yellow. She told me that it was because of the chlorin and other impurities contained in tap water. We should use filter for the tap water.
Now I had seen similar demonstration at one purified water shop. She put an electrode in purified water and tap water each and switched on. After a while, electrode in tap water glass started collecting sediments from the water, while electrode in purified water remained clean.
Is it true that tap water is injurious to health ? According to her, drinking tap water can cause long term irreversible effects like loss of memory etc.
If this is untrue, then whats the reason that tap water is turning yellow or collecting deposits around electrode ?
