The Poor Quality of Our Public Water

Public Water. A serious and often overlooked consideration is the quality of water we’re drinking. In the United States, tap water is the municipal water that comes out of the faucets. This water is treated harshly with chemicals and then pressured through aged piping right into your clean glass. So the only thing clean about a glass of tap water is the glass itself! We should treat water as the elixir of life it is. Nothing on earth would exist without it. The Japanese researcher Dr. Masan Emoto conducted extensive research on water and how its properties changed when exposed to various stimuli, such as words, thoughts, and feelings. Public Water. In similar experiments with plants exposed to positive thoughts, words, and feelings, these plants grew healthier and more vibrant. Both plants and water exposed to harsh behavior and conditions had just the opposite effect. Another quality measurement is comparing water in lakes and rivers near metropolitan cities to water in isolated areas, closer to nature. Measuring the content of these waters, we see a vast difference in the amount of minerals and composition of pollutants. Public Water.

Public Water. Some of the minerals common to natural water sources include magnesium, which is essential to muscle movement, protein metabolism, heart function, and blood clotting, among other vital functions. The daily recommendation for magnesium is 1−1.2 grams daily. Magnesium is involved in over 300 bodily functions. So when we are deficient, it will show up in so many aspects of our health, including sleep. Another essential mineral is calcium, which is critical to strong teeth and bones, regulating nerve transmission, blood clotting, and muscle contraction. Like magnesium, the daily recommendation is 1−1.2 grams daily. Although sodium is often vilified, it occurs naturally due to underground salt deposits. It is often supplemented as a ‘water softener’ and for purification. Sodium is critical to the transportation of nutrients throughout the body and balancing fluid levels. Natural sodium in its organic form has a positive effect on blood pressure, contrary to the processed inorganic form that is in many processed foods. Potassium functions to maintain a proper acid-alkaline pH and proper electrolyte balance in the blood. A deficiency leads to fatigue, increase in blood pressure, muscle weakness, cramping, and anxiety. Public Water.

Public Water. All of these essential minerals are combined to create alkaline reserves that maintain the body’s alkaline pH of 7.35 through a buffering system. They are constantly being withdrawn to counterbalance the acidic foods and drinks you consume. Once these alkaline reserves are depleted, they will begin to withdraw these minerals from areas that you need them, such as the calcium in your teeth and bones. Tap water is treated with chlorine to reduce the presence of parasites and attempt to make municipal water biologically safe during its storage and transit through water main lines, tanks, and plumbing. However, it also contains fluorine, which in chemistry is well known to be volatile and poisonous. Public Water. People often add a filter in an attempt to remove the chlorine residue and improve the taste. But most filters do not protect against parasites (cryptosporidium and giardia), heavy metals such as lead that leach from the corrosion of outdated pipes (as we have seen in Flint, Michigan), antibiotics, and a host of other ghastly critters. As I said, water is the elixir of life; so all forms of life pursue water with the same ferocity as we do, just with more ingenuity. Public Water.

Public Water. That’s how all the critters end up in our water supply. By the way, the parasite Cryptosporidium is a waterborne parasite that is shed in the feces after reproducing by the millions in the intestines of its host. This parasite can withstand temperature extremes and even survive direct exposure to pure chlorine bleach. No antibiotics or other medical treatments can remedy this vagrant. This is why using just a standard water filter doesn’t do the job. The most common option is now bottled water, which is typically labeled as either purified or distilled. Before I describe their differences, be sure to patronize only bottling companies that have ensured the plastic they use is free of bisphenol A (BPA). This is an industrial chemical that has been shown to seep into foods and beverages from plastic containers and leads to a host of health issues, including cancer, infertility, and birth defects. Purified water is filtered water that is further cleansed and purified through an additional purification process, which is typically reverse osmosis, distillation, or deionization. The final product has higher purity than tap or filtered water. Public Water.

Public Water. You’re probably wondering, because of my previous statement, is distilled water just purified water? It can be confusing. However, purified water isn’t always distilled water, depending on the process of purification used. Despite the fact that in the process of distillation and purification, water is exposed to higher temperatures than either reverse osmosis or deionization, the most important fact is, neither at conclusion will contain adequate amounts of minerals and trace elements for our biological needs. They are considered dead water. Dead water will eventually leach minerals from the body. So, essentially, bottled waters like Aquafina or Dasani are clean toilet water deficient in vital minerals. The process of distillation, reverse osmosis (usually in an acidic medium), and deionization all eliminate minerals in the process. So, if those minerals are not added back organically, you are drinking dead water. Natural mineral water, or waters labeled ‘spring water,’ must originate from an officially recognized source. However, spring water does not undergo a two-year intensive recognition and regulatory process and did not have to be bottled at the source until recently. Spring water is the statutory name for water acquired from a non-polluted ground source. Public Water.

Public Water. In the UK, spring, tap, bottled, and filtered water can be chemically treated, while natural mineral water cannot. So, from a common sense standpoint, the source of water should be isolated from major cities, like areas in the Himalayas or Mount Fiji. These waters are naturally cleansed via the process of rain and supplemented with minerals and trace elements by filtering themselves through the earth. Again, natural spring water should flow from a natural spring and be bottled at that source. Natural spring water is naturally alkaline with organic minerals from the earth, not alkalized with chemicals to raise the pH. Public Water. Artesian spring water is obtained from a natural source but bottled off-site, then processed and purified. Mineral water could be natural or artesian water. Can you see the confusion that the water industry is presenting us with? What’s probably more confusing is the whole alkaline pH focus these days. The pH of most bottled water is highly acidic, and tap water most certainly is. However, it is not enough to simply purchase the bottled water with the highest pH above 7 to replenish your alkaline reserves. Public Water.

Public Water. Check the labeling or call the company to determine the source and location in which the water was bottled. What minerals if any are listed on the label? Is the container BPA free? Are they labeling this water as artesian, mineral, spring, distilled, purified, or deionized? Are these natural electrolytes or synthetically added? These are just a few questions that you should know about one of the most important nutritional and health decisions you make on a daily basis. You should only ingest live waters, which come from a natural source and are unadulterated. To expand your perspective on the topic, live waters are also present in fruits and vegetables that contribute to your hydration. Fruits and vegetables, unlike other foods, come equipped with their own digestive enzymes that aid in their own digestion and prevent you from using alkaline reserves. This is another reason why eating plant-based and lightly preparing your food is so vital. High temperature from cooking denatures digestive enzymes, kills nutrients, and removes live waters.
