That is 100% true. And most bottled water that you are drinking and paying 3 times the price of gasoline for, is simply tap water run through a filter like Britta.
Also don't be fooled by "Artesian Spring" water. All that means is that the water comes from a moving source. Your local river is a "moving source", not to mention the mineral and sodium content is far greater than what is considered safe.
Also, never ever drink "Distilled" water because that can cause imbalances in your blood. Because distilling removes all of the electrolytes so when it gets inside your body your body membranes are used as a filter and the distilled water will draw out the electrolytes from your blood and cells in order to create a balance on either side of the membrane, which leads to electrolyte imbalances in the body. Distilled water should only be used for things that require water such as Irons, Breathing machines etc. Things that cannot afford to have calcium build up in it otherwise it will destroy the mechanics of the equipment.
|I had no idea tap water was subject to regulation. confused:
Yes, cities regulate the content of tap water and make sure that it is free from contaminents, parasities and has the required amount of flouride in it for our bone and teeth health.
I only drink tap water.The only time I drink a bottled water is if I am in the grocery store and I am thirsty. I pick up a bottled water and sip it as I go through the store and then pay for it with the rest of my groceries. All the rest of the time it's either plain tap water or if I am feeling ambitious I will fill up my Britta water jug: but not usually.
