Berkey Water Purifiers Continually Exceed Water Safety Requirements
Water is what keeps our planet and our bodies healthy. We know that we need to drink at least eight glasses of water every day and we know that if we don't drink water we will die. The human body can last several weeks without eating solid food but rarely survives for three days without drinking water. What's more, the simple act of drinking water has been known to cure headaches and keep most other illnesses at bay. Water is what keeps us healthy-inside and out!
You would think then, that because water is so important, we could be doing everything we can to make sure that the water we drink is as healthy as possible. Many people believe that drinking bottled water is the best option. Unfortunately, in many cases, drinking bottled water is the worst thing you can do for your body.
The difference between bottled water and tap or well water is the way in which the water is regulated. Bottled water manufacturers and distributors lobbied and succeeded in getting bottled water listed as a food by the Food and Drug Administration. This means that the water you see all over your grocery store shelves is only subject to the scrutiny of the Food and Drug Administration and it's rules about what is safe to drink are famously lax.
Tap and well water, on the other hand is not just subject to the Food and Drug Administration but also the Environmental Protection Agency. The Environmental Protection Agency's safety standards are far stricter than those of the Food and Drug Administration. With this extra set of standards in place, tap water has actually become healthier for you than bottled water.
It stands to reason that if tap water is healthier than bottled water that filtered and purified tap water is the healthiest water of all. The best home water filter on the market is, by far, the Berkey water filter. The Berkey water filter protects against dangerous contaminants and other unwanted materials and manages to keep 99.99% of these materials out of your drinking water. What's more, the Berkey water filter is very affordable, durable and lasts longer than other filters that are available. When used as a water bottle, the portable Berkey water filter can clean up to six hundred gallons of water before a replacement filter needs to be purchased. Think of the money you'll save! Think of the benefits to your health!
With products like the Berkey -that can be used as a well water filter too- on the market, it is becoming harder to understand why someone would spend so much money on purchasing bottled water especially when it has been proven that bottled water is downright bad for you a lot of the time. The Berkey water filter will save you hundreds of dollars every year, it will reduce the amount of waste in your household (no empty bottles to worry about throwing away or recycling and very little packaging to worry about) and it will keep you healthy!
