The breadth and quantity of the bio-chemical toxins in our bodies are relatively shocking. A short list of some of the common toxins found in ALL Americans include; lead, mercury, DDT and many other pesticides, PCB's, and perchlorate (a toxic compound of rocket fuel). Literally, tens of thousands of man-made chemicals can be found in our bodies. Many of these originate in all types of household products. Chemicals from pesticides, the city water supply, plastics, flame-retardants, cigarette smoke, carpets, plywood glues, paints, exhaust fumes, plus the by-products that escape the factory smoke stacks.
In addition to the chemicals we breathe, eat or drink, there are many that are created in our bodies everyday, which are poisonous and need to be processed.
About 25 years ago I did a lot of research on drinking water quality. I even held classes on this subject for patients at the time. Prior to my research I had drinking water delivered to our home, those 5 gallon bottles of "Spring Water". However, through extensive reading on the subject, including some government reports, it became very clear that drinking our tap water is not a healthy thing, and the research on the large bottle water industry was a bit scary.
Regarding city water, anywhere in America. They have to put chemicals in the water to kill the bacteria, viruses and parasites. That's good for killing potentially dangerous bugs, but we really don't need extra man-made chemicals in our bodies. Although there are EPA standards for certain allowable chemical levels in the water, these aren't always met as local governments decided they could not afford to get rid of all those chemicals. Additionally, new chemicals are created when the ones already in the water react with each other. Yes, this is a mess.
Regarding having water delivered to your home in those large bottles. Years ago, the State of California created a special committee to determine if the bottled water industry needed to be regulated. The committee report, which I read, listed many different problems they found in the water they tested, including bacteria and various harmful chemicals. This led them to determine that the industry needed regulation. However, the government also determined that it could not afford to regulate the industry. A 2008 research report found over 38 different chemicals in 10 major brands of bottled water. Then the most recent report from a few years ago, showed that many public water supplies now have medications finding their way into the drinking water!
My research clarified that the best water for us to use is Reverse Osmosis systems combined with carbon filters. This highly sensitive purification process eliminates heavy metals, chemicals and minerals which could potentially carry radiation. Additionally, this water tastes excellent.
So for the past 20 years I have had a Reverse Osmosis unit installed in my home, which I rent on a monthly basis. The company I have rented from all of this time also provides our water at the clinic. They service the units every year, testing the water and replacing certain filters and others as needed. Advanced Water Solutions (805-751-5577) is the company, advancedwaterinc.com is their website. Their service has always been excellent and they are really nice people to work with. They will even install these devices if you rent your home and move them for you if you move. They also have whole house purification systems and water softener systems.
The added benefit of these units is you can use this purified water for all your water needs as it just keeps making more. I encourage everyone to use this kind of system for the healthiest water for you and your family.
