That is an interesting article. I would like to see US based research on it.

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother

My family in Ketchikan has a 5000gal or tank that is filled only by rain water (unless its a dry summer then they have to buy 1000 or gal). Even though their roof is metal, and pipes made of non toxic metals and the inner tank is sanitized regularly they have an inline filter for all the water. They probably don't need it but it's one of those "better too, than not" situations.

Something to consider. Thanks. I never thought of that angle.
