    What shower filter(s) do you recommend (I am based in NYC and, like other US cities, the water supply has excessive chlorine, bromine, and fluorine). Or, what shower filters are recommended by other reputable, unbiased sources?

    I loved this post!!! When I was in college for a standard nutrition degree, it was so very difficult to answer test questions on the subject of our dietary guidelines. I was constantly feeling like I was answering in a unethical manner. Our system is incredibly wrong and it saddens me. I hope and pray it changes! Websites like this one gives me great hope!!! Thanks Dr. McGregor!!
