Why You Need a Water Filter
Is Tap Water Safe?
You may hear a report saying that tap water is safe and better than bottled water one day. Then the very next day we hear about thousands of people being poisoned by drinking tap water. So, which is the most accurate? Well, that actually depends on where you live. Some water districts are far better than others at eliminating the toxins cause illness but are still allowed in your tap water. Some, if not most in the US, add sodium fluoride, which is an environmental toxin as well as serious health issue (and it doesn't help your teeth, as advertised either, just causes dental fluorosis!)
Most bottled water IS really just tap water, ran through a crude brita type filter, that masks the flavor of chlorine and fluoride but does remove them at all. Some bottled water makers even add extra fluoride! Unless it is ionized water, or Reverse Osmosis purified, then it has a lot of things you wish you hadn't known about. You're still far better off not putting any of those chemicals into your body. So Is Tap Water Safe? I think not!
What's in Tap Water?
I'm sure you've heard by now that there is an ongoing water crisis in Flint, Michigan where toxic heavy metals like lead is being dumped into the tap water they use for drinking and bathing. Lawsuits are being filed against the city for allowing poisoned tap water to flow into people's homes without their knowledge.
Whole families have been poisoned and some have become very ill because of drinking and bathing in their city's tap water. It's not just Flint, MI either. It is happening in a lot of areas because because there is little public oversight on what is actually allowed into your family's drinking water.
I find it totally unbelievable in a “civilized society” that public health officials would allow this to happen to anyone, but welcome to today's world. Here is a list of just a few of the most harmful toxins that recent testing has discovered in your tap water:
- Fecal Cloiform Bacteria
- Pesticides and Herbicides
- Sodium Chloride (chlorine)
- VOC's (volatile organic compounds)
42 States in the U.S. have been found to be recently contaminated with high levels of toxic chemicals flowing into their homes! And that is exactly why you need to filter your own! I stopped drinking tap water after discovering the very negative effects it was having on people's health and wellness (dizziness, lead toxicity, hair fallout, poor mental performance, poor athletic performance, problems with digestion) to name a few!
Do not trust any public agency to do this for you, they can't and they won't! You need to look after your own health, and after your family's health, as you can do it better than any “public health official” can. Although, it is part of their job to do so, they are being paid by the chemical companies to allow them to dump toxic metals into your water supply.
You need to know this and be smarter than they are, your health depends on it. Don't ever drink tap water, unless it's an emergency. If you have to, sip some, rinse your mouth, then spit it out! Do a regular heavy metal detox if you've have been drinking tap water for any length of time.
What's The Best Water to Drink?
So, if unfiltered tap water is not the answer, and most bottled water is just tap water, then what's the best water to drink? The most economical solution is to get a good quality water filter that removes all the harmful heavy metals and toxins like microbes, amoeba, bacteria, viruses as well as pesticide residues, herbicides, fungicides and flushed prescription medicines, like pain killers, hormone disrupters, heart medicines, cholesterol medicines, antibiotics and many others. You must get this out or it will end up in your brain, organs and tissues. And people wonder whey they never feel as good as they should or can!
Most unfiltered tap water is also highly acidic and makes your body an easy target for chronic disease, as they are all conditions where the body has become acidic. Filtering out the acidic chemicals gives your body a balanced pH (slightly alkaline) and good boost to your overall health and appearance. You will also notice better performance and quicker healing if you drink a more alkaline water regularly. There are many good filters that get all the “nasties” out of your drinking water and improve your health faster than you realize. So, what is the best water filter for your health and lifestyle?
What is The Best Water Filter?
The best water filter is one that is economical for you (most bang for the buck) that gives you the lowest cost (price per glass of filtered water, usually pennies, compared to dollars for bottled water!) and gets out all the harmful heavy metals, toxins, chemicals, microbes and medicines. And then adds back in the healthy minerals that make your drinking water a slightly alkaline pH that your body can actually use to hydrate and satisfy your body's needs for clean pure drinking water.
