The Truth About Bottled and Tap Water

~
Whether you’re a dedicated bottled water drinker or someone who prefers drinking water straight from the tap, there are a few things you should know about the source of your H20. First of all, just because it’s in a bottle does not necessarily mean that the water comes directly from a natural spring or well; it may actually originate from a public water source — that’s right, some bottled waters are just tap water in disguise. There are also a number of different kinds of bottled waters. Here are six of the most common types:
~
6 TYPES OF BOTTLED WATER
~
~ Purified water is essentially tap water that has been purified through a distillation, deionization, or reverse-osmosis process. Purified water may also be referred to as demineralized water. Purified water is typically taken from metropolitan water sources, and then put through commercial filters to remove any chlorines, detritus, or other trace elements that should not be in the drinking water.
~
~ Well water comes from a well that penetrates through the water table. Well water that is bottled for public consumption is regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); however, private drinking water wells are not subject to EPA standards.
~
~ Spring water is sourced from a natural spring, where water flows directly from under the earth’s surface.
~
~ Mineral water is natural water that comes from a well or spring. It contains dissolved minerals and other trace elements (at least 250 parts per million). While some people believe that mineral water has more health benefits than other types of bottled water, the FDA does not allow a producer to add additional minerals to the water or claim that it provides health benefits.
~
~ Sparkling water is spring or well water that contains dissolved carbon dioxide, which makes the water naturally carbonated. Producers can replace the carbon dioxide that was lost during processing but cannot add more carbonation to what was naturally in the water.
~
~ Artesian water is a type of well water that is derived from an aquifer — a water-bearing underground layer of rock or sand.
~
~ Bottled Versus Tap
In general, safety standards for bottled water and tap water are the same with a few exceptions. For example, because tap water may become contaminated with lead as it travels through pipes, the government limits the amount of lead in tap water to 15 parts per billion, whereas the limit is set below 5 parts per billion for bottled water. Another major difference is that tap water is often fluoridated, but most bottled waters do not contain fluoride or chlorine. On the other hand, recent studies have suggested that certain plastics used in the containers for bottled water may contain potentially harmful chemicals known as phthalates, including Bisphenol A (BPA). If you’re concerned, you may consider purchasing water that has been bottled in glass or in BPA-free plastic.

Fluoridegate—Why is Poisoning of Children Considered a Valuable Public Health Policy?

~ Dr Mercola … Fluoridegate—Why is Poisoning of Children Considered a Valuable Public Health Policy?
~ Story at-a-glance
~
~ Fluoride is a toxic substance that is biologically active in the human body where it accumulates in sensitive tissues over time, wreaks havoc with enzymes and produces a number of serious adverse health effects —including neurological and endocrine dysfunction
~ The film, Fluoridegate, places particular focus on how water fluoridation harms young children, as they tend to suffer the greatest health effects
~ 25 human studies have linked fluoride with lowered IQ in children, including recent research from Harvard, and 100 animal studies linking it to brain damage
~ Water fluoridation came about as the result of a massively successful PR campaign, and was reportedly first suggested as a way to protect aluminum and steel producers from lawsuits against the fluorine pollution coming from their plant
~
There are now 25 studies showing fluoride is associated with diminished IQ, even at levels as low as 0.3 to 3 parts per million, which overlaps the range of fluoride added to the water supply in many American communities (0.7 to 1.2 ppm). About 100 animal studies have also linked fluoride to brain damage. Studies have shown fluoride toxicity can lead to the wide-ranging problems listed below.
~
SYMPTOMS: Fluoride Toxicity
~
Increases lead absorption ~ Disrupts collagen synthesis ~ Hyperactivity and/or lethargy ~ Crippling skeletal fluorosis and bone fractures ~ Genetic damage and cell death ~ Increased tumor and cancer growth ~ Disrupts immune system ~ Inhibits antibody production ~ Brain damage, and lowered IQ ~ Dementia ~ Arthritis ~ Severe eye problems, including blindness ~ Impaired thyroid function ~ Bone cancer (osteosarcoma) ~ Inactivates 62 enzymes ~ Muscle disorders
