A recent report in Finland highlighted some of the concerns associated with the tap water in Finland. Specifically, the report stated that more than two million people in the Scandinavian country have high levels of lead in their drinking water. The level found was five hundred times the normal level. Lead is known to cause a variety of serious health issues including weak bones, brain damage, brittle nails and poor teeth. It can even contribute to increased blood pressure.
