Should well water be filtered?


Question from Pearl: I have well water! Should I be filtering it? I live on a farm!
Answers - Ronda Gates, M.S., R.Ph. You should definitely filter well water because it is often highly contaminated with bacteria, including E. coli, giardia, and other bacteria that specifically cause intestinal diseases. The upside of well water is that it's really high in minerals.
