WARNING: THE WATER YOU ARE ABOUT TODRINK MAY BE HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH

 BOCA RATON, Fla., April 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Imagine a label on every kitchen faucet reading: "Warning, the water you're about to drink may be hazardous to your health." That's one way to rescue the public from what they don't know about their drinking water. Chris Morrison, president of Grayson Mountain Water Company in Boca Raton, Fla., feels so strongly about educating the public about their drinking water, he has purchased air time on CNN on April 10, 11 & 12 to prove it.
 "People have a right to know about the health risks inherent in their drinking water. Government standards allow a tremendous amount of contaminants with both known and unknown health effects and few are aware of this," said Morrison. "Studies prepared by and for the EPA show over 2,000 organic and inorganic contaminants present in several public supplies of drinking water in this country."
 Studies have been published since the 1974 passage of the Safe Drinking Water Act that reveal over 2,100 contaminants detected in U.S. drinking water. Of these, 190 are known or suspected to cause adverse health effects at certain concentration levels (A).
 Morrison stated, "The Grayson Mountain Water Company was formed as a safe alternative water source. Our commercial makes people aware that they have a choice about the water their family drinks."
 Grayson Mountain Water's concern for the quality of water is evident in Grayson 100 Percent Pure Mountain Water which has never tested positive for any form of man-made contaminants by government certified labs. Grayson owns the mountains where their wells are located, further ensuring their purity standards. Grayson 100 Percent Pure Mountain Water tests 300 percent purer than the top selling European water.
 Grayson, which has plans for going public, is one of the first American companies to utilize recyclable or biodegradable material in all phases of manufacturing.
