What are the health hazards of using Tap Water in your home? The answer may surprise you. Tap Water in Italy is well known to be contaminated by a wide range of chemicals, metals, bacteria and other harmful substances. If you believe that your drinking water comes from an “off-the-grid” public supply, ask yourself what kind of confidence you have in that information.
There are no guidelines governing the quality of tap water in Italy. While the level of contaminants may be low or even negligible in some areas, there is reason to be concerned about the long term effects of consumption. The contaminants that you may be aware of and consider “safe” may actually pose significant health risks.
As a matter of fact, drinking Tap Water in Italy may be a problem just like drinking distilled water. Distillation was used as a means of transforming water into something safer for drinking centuries ago. It is not likely that this was done intentionally today.
