Filters for Filters

20 Jun. 2011 Posted by Hannah Mich

So we have filters for our drinking water, which I thought our water was suppose to be clean; we have air purifiers/filters to clean the air in our homes, which many assume is already clean air; and we have filters on our AC and Furnaces. I also realized I have TWO filters on my vacuum, which makes me think that either the vacuum company assumes my house is extremely filthy or dust is really really bad. Filters I think may serve a good purpose for human health, but instead I feel like they are just being used as a band-aid to cover a cut that is not healing.

"...I feel like they are just being used as a band-aid to cover a cut that is not healing."
Our drinking water is not getting cleaner and air quality overall is not drastically improving. It is like one big cycle: create pollution, need filters, more pollution and chemicals, more filters and so on. Maybe I should get into the "filter industry" because at this rate we may need filters for filters.
