Gravity water filter scientific test results released by Natural News: Big Berkey, ProPur, Zen Water Systems and more

Water filter

(NaturalNews) Every household should have at least one gravity water filter that doesn't need electricity to function, but which water filters perform the best when it comes to removing toxic elements and heavy metals?

To help answer the question, Natural News has published detailed results of the scientific testing of popular water filter brands. The results, achieved via ICP-MS instrumentation with parts-per-billion sensitivity, are published now at www.WaterFilterLabs.com

The new website features laboratory testing results of popular filters such as ProPur, Big Berkey, Zen Water Systems, Crystal Drop and Doulton. In addition, laboratory testing results for gravity countertop water filter are also published, covering ZeroWater, Pur, Brita, Culligan, Seychelle, WaterMan, Mavea and more.

All results were determined using ICP-MS instrumentation, the same technology used by universities and the FDA to test food and water for heavy metals contamination.

Elements tested include Aluminum, Copper, Arsenic, Strontium, Cadmium, Cesium, Mercury, Lead and Uranium. The scope of the laboratory testing did not encompass microbiology or organic chemical compounds such as pesticides.

Water filter performance varies from near perfect to almost useless

In the tests conducted at the Natural News labs, the performance of water filters in removing toxic elements varied widely, with some filters showing near-zero performance while other filters removed nearly 100% of all tested elements.

The top performing filters in these tests were Big Berkey, Zen Water Systems and ZeroWater.

"With this effort, we are using the scientific instrumentation of our laboratory to help provide information to consumers that may help them choose the appropriate water filter for their preparedness needs," said Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, director of the laboratory that conducted the tests.

"These tests reveals that consumers have several choices in water filters which remove nearly one hundred percent of tested elements. That's good news for consumers who need to know whether they can rely on these filters for emergency use," Adams continued.

Three water filters remove nearly all arsenic

Arsenic is a common contamination problem of water wells around the world. Fluoride is also a common contaminant in some water wells, causing fluorosis and bone diseases.

Big Berkey, Zen Water Systems and ZeroWater filters all removed nearly all Arsenic as follows:

Big Berkey arsenic removal: 100%
Zen Water Systems arsenic removal: 99.5%
ZeroWater arsenic removal: 99.3%

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
