So after a few days of having major anxiety that I had some auto-immune disease that was causing my usually thick hair to become thin and brittle, my roommate related a very interesting story to me that essentially tied all of this together:<br> + <br> + She went to get her hair trimmed at a local salon. The hairdresser noticed large amounts of hair coming out of her scalp when she was being shampooed. The hairdresser told my roommate that the volume of hair being shed was not normal, and later told her that this was probably caused by showering in Davis water.<br> + <br> + EW.<br> + <br> + Concerns about my impending health were slightly eased when I heard this story, but now I am equally mortified and will drop a significant amount of money on a water purifier for my shower.<br> + <br> + Until then, I will be washing my hair with the water from the Brita filter jug.<br> + <br> + It's either that or my hair is falling out because I have a disease. And my roommate does too.<br> + <br> + Has anyone has a similar experience?... --["Users/ZoeDiamond"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Tap Waterhttp://daviswiki.org/Tap_Water2010-09-28 10:46:37DagonJonestap water alkaline according to DonShor from his garden questions page <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Tap Water<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 5: </td> <td> Line 5: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> City ["Water" water] comes from 22 ["Davis Water Wells" wells] at depths of 300-1800 feet, [http://www.ci.davis.ca.us/pw/water/WellLocations.cfm located] throughout the city; the water is filtered naturally by sand and gravel as it passes through the aquifers.

Arsenic and hexavalent chromium levels are relatively low, but may exceed future drinking water limits. Selenium concentrations are sufficiently high to cause problems at the City’s wastewater treatment plant, but are below drinking water limits. </td> </tr> </table> </div> Tap Waterhttp://daviswiki.org/Tap_Water2005-08-20 18:38:25ScottRitchieComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Tap Water<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 55: </td> <td> Line 55: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2005-08-20 18:38:25'' [[nbsp]] Selenium in the groundwater below federal limits isn't bad for you - it's actually an antioxidant ;) http://www.exrx.net/Nutrition/Antioxidants/Antioxidants.html Also, to prevent your dishes from getting those deposits on them, you can use JetDry or the generic equivalent. --["ScottRitchie"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Tap Waterhttp://daviswiki.org/Tap_Water2005-08-20 15:23:10JeffreyNonken <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Tap Water<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 3: </td> <td> Line 3: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> The university taps a deeper <span>a</span>quifer than the city and tastes a little bit better due to is having fewer contaminants.
