Top 10 Dirty Little Secrets About Water…Brace Yourself!

Water is photo“What does the FDA have to say about Ionized Water?”

OR

“I’ll have to check with my doctor…”

When I get this response it becomes painfully obvious how little people know about water in general.  Here are a few overlooked water details that everyone needs to consider (and that the FDA won’t tell you).

1.  The Cancer Panel for NIH says that its safer to drink filtered tap water than it is to drink bottled water.  That ought to make you go “hmm”.

2.  The FDA does NOT test bottled water.  They rely on input provided by bottled water manufacturers.

3.  Municipal water is recycled sewage.  In fact, this process is an ideal example of recycling!  Drink the water…it becomes waste..flush it back into the system, treat it with chemicals, put it back in the tap then the process starts all over again.  Yum.

4.  There are up to 300 chemicals added to municipal water to make it “safe” to drink including chemicals that are known to cause cancer.  Of course we’re told that they are added at “safe levels” but doesn’t that depend on how much water you drink, how much water you use for cooking  and how many showers you take per day?  The more exposure to these chemicals the more at risk you are.

5.  Reverse Osmosis water is a big step toward removing harmful chemicals BUT it removes the good right along with the bad (like throwing the baby out with the bath water).  The body needs minerals that are found in water in the natural state.  Drinking “dead” water doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. If you question that, perhaps it’s time for a refresher course in biology.

6.  Plastic bottles are bad for you and the environment no matter how pretty the bottles look or how “natural” the name sounds.  We know that BPA (and BSA) leaches into the product at high temperatures…temperatures that are reached as part of the bottling process! So, your bottle is FILLED with harmful chemicals BEFORE they reach the warehouses!

7.  Brita-type filters are helpful in removing most of the chlorine and some of the chemicals  BUT they make water very acidic.  In fact, this filtered water (along with the majority of bottled water) is as acidic as drinking a soda.  Since acidosis is the leading cause of chronic disease this is probably something you’ll want to take seriously.

8.   The majority of bottled water is municipal water that has had the chlorine removed and is then bottled and marketed as “natural” or “spring” water.   How does it feel to have water sold to you twice?  The bottled water industry will one day be known as one of the biggest scams in history of mankind.

9.  The average American spends $640 per year on bottled water….and they’ll spend that much (and more) for the rest of their lives UNLESS they swap bottled water for a healthy alternative the way I did!

10.  There are 5 (known) places in the world where water is naturally structured the way Ionized water is, because nature does all of the work to make it that way.   Unless nature is capable of producing “snake oil”  I think it’s safe to say that ionized water is different because its scientifically structured to have the same attributes as the “healing” waters around the world.

Water Shortages? You Better Believe it! What Are You Going to do About it?

kennedy quote

Two billion people across the globe don’t have fresh water and yet; water is the source of all life.   In places like Mexico City, people spend as much as 30% of their annual income buying enough water just to keep them alive. Will America be next?

Unfortunately, most Americans don’t give water a second thought.  As long as we can turn on the tap and clear water comes out we believe all is well with the world.  We spend $640 per year per person (on the average) buying bottled water that we’ve convinced ourselves is healthy in spite of the health warnings.  When will American’s get off of their high-horse and stop wasting water as if there is no end?

What’s The Problem?

There are two major problems with our water.  First and foremost, there is only so much of it to go around.  In fact, if we didn’t recycle sewage to be used as tap water America would already be “tapped out” of water.  To further compound our problem, each time you purchase commercially bottled water you’re contributing to the depletion of our water supply.  Did you know that it takes 5 liters of water to produce a 1 liter bottle of water?  With only so much of it to go around, allowing companies (like Nestle,  Coke and Pepsi) to tap our water resources only to resell water back to us makes absolutely no sense.  It’s time to wake up and trade your desire for convenience for a good dose of common sense!

What Do The Experts Say?

Our second problem with water is health.  In Reducing Environmental Risk of Cancer the National Institute of Health (NIH) states that we need to work with our tap water source (making it as healthy as possible) instead of opting for bottled water in order to reduce the risk of cancer.  There are numerous health risks associated with the consumption of  bottled water.  In addition to being stored in plastics that are known to cause cancer and disrupt hormones, most bottled water is reverse osmosis water that has been cleared of most chemicals and robbed of all vital minerals.  Water must be naturally laced with minerals to be beneficial to the human body.  Without minerals, water can’t conduct the electrical impulses necessary for health and functionality.  A lot of our health problems can be directly attributed  to the water we’re drinking!

So…we’re spending approximately $6.00 a gallon on water that is hazardous to our health and detrimental to our water supply.  Does that make any sense to you?  Our arrogance and our willingness to waste is shameful.  Maybe we need to spend a week or two in Mexico City to gain a better understanding of the value of water?

Nobel Prize Worthy!

I may not have all of the answers but I definitely have the answer for our water problems.  In fact, my answer should be Nobel Prize worthy based on Kennedy’s definition.  I don’t contribute to water waste nor do I throw hard-earned money at water in plastic bottles that I know is bad for me.  I follow the advice of NIH.  I restructure my tap water to return it to the way it was before we managed to mess things up.  I ionize my water with the very best equipment money can buy.  My health is worth it….my family is worth it and (to me)  the planet is worth it.  No more tap water laced with chemicals or $6.00 a gallon in plastic containers.

As a result of changing my water source I sleep better at night.  Partly because I’m being socially responsible and partly because I’m (finally) giving my body the water that it’s been craving all along.
