NOT ALL WATER IS CREATED EQUAL
WHY YOU SHOULD STOP DRINKING TAP + BOTTLED WATER
30 years ago the bottled water industry barely existed in North America. Since then it has burgeoned into a multi-billion dollar business. This has occurred in large part because of the greater awareness of the importance of water for human health. Now that this has been established and accepted by the general public, the debate continues over which water is best to drink.
There are hundreds of bottled water businesses on the market, most of them not any better quality than what comes out of your tap, although they sell for up to hundreds of times the price of tap water. There is nothing in any of these bottles waters that would make it worth these high prices. (65% of bottled waters are just filled with tap water)
2.7 million tons of plastic are used to bottle water each year. 1.5 million barrels of oil are used to make the polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottle, which is enough to fill the fuel tanks of 100,000 cars.
Toxic chemicals are released into the environment during the production and disposal of these bottles. 86% of water bottles end up in landfills and it takes thousands of years for them to decompose.
If they're not filled with tap water they're filled with purified water, or reverse osmosis which wreaks havoc on our body and health, contrary to what we've been told. The reverse osmosis system is so aggressive that leeches heavy metals from the metal piping it passes through, which then leeches microplastics and toxic chemicals from your plastic bottle into your water.
There have been numerous studies done on the side effects of consuming water from these plastic bottles, a common concern is the effect it has on our hormones and reproductive health.
If one was wise, they would stay far away from bottled waters, not only for our safety, but for the safety of the planet and generations to come.
The EPA admitted that 23 million Americans consume contaminated water, and that there are over 315 toxic chemicals in our water.
A post from EWG.com states, "Federal drinking water standards have not been updated in decades, and the regulatory process does not take into consideration the heightened vulnerability to toxic chemicals of children, infants and the developing fetus. Many chemicals known to pose risks lack enforceable federal health standards, leaving the public susceptible to harm from new and emerging contaminants in tap water.
The regulatory system meant to ensure the safety of America’s drinking water is broken. The inexcusable failure of the federal government’s responsibility to protect public health means there are no legal limits for more than 160 unregulated contaminants in U.S. tap water. For some other chemicals, the EPA’s Maximum Contaminant Levels, or MCLs, haven’t been updated in almost 50 years."
The disturbing truth is that when most Americans drink a glass of tap water, they're also getting a dose of chlorine, pharmaceuticals, heavy metals, and even radioactive contaminates linked to cancer, harm to the brain and nervous system, changes in the growth and development of the fetus, fertility problems and/or hormone disruption. Our tap water has to be slightly alkaline (above a 7 pH) so, they put lye in the water... and people drink or shower in this!
Safe drinking water is not negotiable – it’s a basic right.

REVERSE OSMOSIS ~ WHAT I USED TO DRINK
What is considered the worlds healthiest drinking water should in fact be considered the worlds most detrimental substance to consume.
RO not only removes all contaminates from the water, it also removes all minerals & electrolytes leaving the water as a bare structure of H20, which our bodies cannot properly flush out unless bound with minerals and electrolytes. This causes purified water to leach minerals from the tissue in our small intestine, organs, and bones. This is quite concerning, but the effects this has on our health is even more cause for concern. Not only does consuming purified water cause you to become mineral deficient, it inflames all your organs, increases cortisol output (stress hormone), and it inflames your cardiovascular system which is responsible for blood flow, thus limiting blood flow throughout our body. Why on Earth we have all been tricked into believing this is the healthiest water we can consume is beside me.
A well known CTV program concluded that;
"If you drink distilled water exclusively you definitely increase your risk of high blood pressure, heart beat irregularities and muscle cramping. In fact, if you're an athlete, you should never drink distilled water because it can quickly rob you of your valuable electrolytes, calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium."
The World Health Organization (WHO) conducted an independent study on reverse osmosis water and their findings were astonishing.
They concluded that reverse osmosis is a detriment to any human or animal that consumes this water and leaves them severely mineral deficient, even with the "replenishment" of minerals into the water. Even if you remineralize this water it does not replenish the minerals back to the original structure - it's only giving you the bare minimum, and the WHO says, "a standard diet does not sufficiently supplement the lack of minerals in RO water."
Our soils are becoming more and more mineral deficient, which causes our food to become mineral deficient. Not only that but, elements in water are present as free ions meaning, they're more readily available to be absorbed into our bodies + cells. But with food, minerals need to first bind to other substances before being properly absorbed, so it can be said that water is the most beneficial way to absorb our minerals and when you're "replenishing" your body with the same water that is stealing your minerals in the first place, is that really supporting your body in the way that it needs?
One last note on reverse osmosis, okay maybe two...
1. cooking with RO steals an additional 60-80% of our already mineral deficient foods
2. in order to produce just one gallon of drinking water, it takes 5 gallons of RO water to produce that one gallon... is that really sustainable?
