How Contaminated is Public Water
Water in it's purest form is the source is healthy and necessary to live. When you hear the word, "water," we think, cool, wet, and refreshing. The problem is, our water is not always pure. There are over 300 contaminants allowed in our drinking water.
The US Environmental Protection Agency allows certain poisonous chemicals in our water, in "acceptable levels." That's right, our government will allow us to drink poison, as long as it doesn't kill us immediately. It is up to us to find healthy alternatives for water to drink and use in our homes.
By law, there is a certain amount of pollutants allowed in manipulable drinking water. What can we do to make sure our water is safe? We have to arm ourselves with knowledge, and then make the proper choices to assure we are drinking healthy drinking water.
Dehydration can make you Sick
Many illnesses are caused by chronic dehydration. There are a few great books that show the relation of dehydration to sickness. You can find more information about the book, at my article, Water, the Source of Life.
It is important to drink plenty of water, to hydrate and detoxify toxins from our bodies. So, hydration plays and important part in our health. Chronic dehydration can lead to sickness and disease.
We drink too many sugar-filled fruity drinks, soda and power drink, which though liquid, are acidic and not good for you. There is a wonderful book by, Dr. F. Batmanghelidj entitled, "You're not Sick, you're Thirsty".
Some of the material in this book originated in the book, "You're Body's Many Cries for Water, first published in 1992. I suggest you purchase at least one of these books to get more information on how water can help you to reverse sickness and restore health.
The premise of these books is that because many people are chronically dehydrated the cells can not be properly cleansed and hydrated, can make us old before our time and sick. If you restore proper hydration to the body, it will begin to cleanse and hydration on a cellular level, helping the body to heal itself as God intended.
Bottles Alkaline Water
The American Diet is Acidic
In the United States, we eat a lot of fast food and processed junk food, that are very acidic.
We also don't drink enough water and consume too much soda, alcohol, energy drinks and caffeinated drinks. Also, 80% of the foods Americans eat, is unhealthy and produces acidity in the body. Sickness and disease thrive in an acidic environment.
The key to being more healthy is proper hydration and a body whose pH is balanced or more alkaline. This can be achieved by a change in diet, eating more non-processed foods and drinking plenty of water, or even better alkaline water.
Water is the source of life and the source of good health. The body is 90 percent water, and by the time we are old about 50% water. It is necessary to drink quality water to keep the 70 trillion cells in our body properly hydrated.
What is pH
All bodily functions take place in water and without it, the body will die. Though water varies from place tot place, most tap water is very acidic and is also dead water. Have you every brought home a new fish and put them in tap water?
If the pH of the water you put the new fish into is not balanced, it will become listless, sick and may die. Most tropical fish enthusiasts know that when you first set up an aquarium you have to make sure the pH levels are conducive to the maximum health of the fish.
There are products you can purchase at the pet store, to balance the pH level of your fish tank water. Like fish, our body needs clean, uncontaminated water to function properly.
