|Old water tanks that use Asbestos/Amianto and lead pipes|
Asbestos is a mineral found everywhere on Earth. There's no way to escape from it. It's in our air, our food and soil. The biggest health threat comes from inhaling large concentrations of Asbestos over time. Obviously, there isn't much danger of this happening from inhalation, but there are case studies that suggest that Asbestos fibers in the water supply may increase risk of Cancer in the digestive system.
Regardless of whether the risk is minimal or not, There's no reason why anyone should risk their lives by ingesting Asbestos or lead.
So if you are living in Argentina and you have one of these old water tanks, replace it. I chose the brand TINACOS for my new water tank but there are other brands you can choose from.
