The URBAN filter will give you a cheap and convenient way of eliminating many chemicals from your life and improving your health over many years.
The filter will remove VOCs.
The term Volatile Organic Compound refers to a variety of chemical compounds that contain carbon and evaporate at relatively low temperatures.
Drinking water that contains VOCs can increase your risk for a variety of health problems. Some VOCs have been proven to cause cancer after prolonged exposure, while others are considered possible cancer risks. VOCs can also cause other health problems.
Bottle: The bottle is made from BPA free plastic. It is critical that the bottle be made from a soft squeezable plastic as this allows the filter to be flushed out when new but also if it has been standing unused for a day or so. (Be wary of metallic bottle versions as you flush them by sucking the water through the filter, which defeats the purpose of flushing!).
