Remember When…

Remember When…

I remember when I was in grade school, coming in from recess and making a beeline for the drinking fountains along with my buddies. None of us ever thought twice about drinking from a fountain or getting a glass of water from the faucet when we were at home.

Besides that, none of us ever lugged a jug of water wherever we went for fear of dying from dehydration. And guess what? Not one of us ever died of dehydration. It never happened.

So what’s my point? Simple. It’s time to revisit those days.

Why? Because unbiased scientific research has documented the fact that the bottled water being sold to us at super-inflated prices is anything but pure and safe to drink. In fact, to the contrary, in some cases it’s downright harmful.

Now, let me be the first to say that I followed the party line for several years. I bought into the sales propaganda that tap water was bad and bottled water was far safer and more healthful.

Well, BULL ROAR! It’s not.

Take a look at this article: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/125610.php

Here’s a direct quote from the article that may surprise you:

“Researchers found 38 impurities in the 10 brands of bottled water they analyzed. This included disinfection byproducts, fertilizer residue, traces of pain medication, solvents, chemicals used in the plastics industry, bacteria, and radioactive strontium. Across the 10 brands, the researchers found an average of 8 pollutants in each.”

Now, bear in mind that the above reflects only one of several studies that all state the same unfortunate conclusion—bottled water is for the most part a scam.

So what do I suggest you do? Buy your own water purifier (there are many good ones on the market), connect it to your tap, and filter your own drinking water. Not only will you save cash, considering that some bottled waters go for up to $2 a liter, but you will also know beyond a shadow of a doubt the water you are drinking is pure and free of plastics (that raise estrogen levels), fertilizers, fluoride, and dangerous pharmaceuticals.
