Mother Nature can be less than clean, too--take arsenic for instance. If you live in a mountainous region, that can be a problem. There are other types of natural contamination besides arsenic, as you know.

There is a way to filter arsenic out. There is an accessory for the Berkey filter (gravity fed counter top unit) called a "PF-2"that will filter out Arsenic and even small particles like Fluoride. It looks like this: http://pantryparatus.com/berkey/berkey-replacement-filters/berkey-pf-2-fluoride-and-arsenic-reduction-elements-2-in-package.html

However, do I really want the same filtration requirements for the water in the shower or what fills the holding tank for the toilet as what I pour out of the tap into a glass to drink? If so, then the answer becomes very expensive. If you are willing to wash your clothes with unfiltered water, then a Berkey would be a good consideration for your consumption needs.
