According to a new study, rainwater is so heavily contaminated with chemicals that nowhere in the world is it of drinking quality.
Rainwater is contaminated with chemicals above recommended limits, even in the most remote regions of the world such as Antarctica or Tibet. The residues from shampoos and other products break down slowly and are considered harmful. Scientists speak of an “irreversible contamination” of the planet.
Increased risk of obesity and cancer
PFAS are now so persistent and ubiquitous that they will never disappear from the face of the earth. PFAS are also called “forever chemicals”.

Due to chemical pollution, rainwater is not of drinking water quality
Even in Antarctica or the Tibetan plateau, the proportion of particularly persistent per- and polyfluorinated chemicals (PFAS) is “14 times higher” than the US Environmental Protection Agency’s recommended levels for drinking water
The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently lowered the recommended limit values for PFAS used in the comparison study. Cousins said the reason was new evidence that the chemicals could impair children’s immune response to vaccines.

The rain is no longer drinkable anywhere in the world!
Drinking rainwater is no longer a good idea, even in a natural area. Levels of hazardous chemicals exceed healthy levels during rainfall in the most remote parts of the world.
