All About the Drinking Water Available to You!

There are arguments from both medical professionals and the water industry as to which type of drinking water is best for human consumption. After reviewing facts made from both sides, on all types of drinking water, you will see that all of these waters may benefit from adding Supplement Charge, our trace mineral electrolyte formulation.

The human body is approximately 70 percent water. Blood is mostly water and your muscles, lungs and brain contain mostly water. Your body needs water to regulate body temperature and to provide the means for nutrients to travel to all your organs. Water also transports oxygen to your cells, removes waste and protects your joints and organs.

How much water should you consume per day? A good estimate is to take your body weight in pounds and divide that number in half. This formula will give you the number of ounces per day that you should to drink. For example, if you weigh 180 pounds, you should drink at least 90 ounces of water per day. If you exercise, you should drink another eight ounce glass of water for every 20 minutes that you are active. You can add 5 pumps of Supplement Charge to each glass.

Water should contain trace minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium and several others that are necessary to maintain overall good health. Water filtration systems like distillation and reverse osmosis can remove these beneficial minerals. However, drinking tap water without filtering it first is not a good idea since it can contain very harmful chemicals such as chlorine, fluoride and lead, to name a few.

Drinking de-mineralized water can lead to multiple mineral deficiencies because it contains a lot of hydrogen and has a pH below 7, making it acidic. Ideally the water you drink should have a pH level of 8 or higher. Water below an 8 pH level is considered Acidic and above an 8 pH is considered Alkaline.

Your body may try to neutralize the acid by pulling minerals from your teeth and bones, hence leading to mineral deficiencies. Another problem that occurs when your body lacks minerals which are absent in tap water is the production of more free radicals. The increase in free radical production leads to an increased risk of cancer. Studies show that the people who live the longest, most disease-free lives in the world have access to a clean, mineral-rich water supply.

Tap Water

All public water systems contain some level of contamination. Municipal water utilities point out that the chemicals found in their water are below EPA’s Maximum Levels and in most cases, they are. Even the smallest trace of a toxic chemical can cause damage. It was stated, “No level of exposure to a chemical carcinogen should be considered toxicologically insignificant to humans” in a recent report from the National Cancer Institute to the Surgeon General.

The Contaminants found in Tap Water
The toxins found in tap water include disinfectants, disinfection byproducts, inorganic chemicals, microorganisms, organic chemicals and radionuclides.

Studies have been done on chlorine and certain scientific teams feel there is an association between cancer and chlorinated water. Some of the researchers feel that the risk for cancer is 93% higher among people using chlorinated water. Information taken from Medical College of Wisconsin, Senior Research Team and U.S. Council of Environmental Quality.

There are over 2,000 cancer-causing contaminants in the water coming from tap water and only a small portion of these are regulated and tested. Most are unregulated chemicals for which health officials have no safety standards, much less methods for removing them.

In-Organic Chemicals
Bromate, Chlorite, Haloacetic Acids, Total Trihalomethanes, Arsenic Asbestos - increase risk of developing benign intestinal polyps Cyanide, Fluoride, Lead, Mercury Microorganisms include; Cryptosporidium Fecal Coliform and E. Coli , Giardia Lamblia, Legionella, Total Coliforms 5.0% , Viruses (enteric) Gastrointestinal

Organic Chemicals
There are too many organic chemicals mentioned to list. The following are examples that pose an increased risk of cancer Acrylamide, Alachlor, Benzene, Benzopyrene (PAHs), Carbon Tetrachloride, Chlordane, 1,2 Dichloroethane, 1,2-Dichloropropane, Di(2-ethyllhexyl) phthalate, Dixoin, Epichlorochydrin, Ethylene dibromide, Heptachlor, Heptachlor epoxide, Hexachlorobenzene, Pentachlorophenol, Polychlorinated biphenyls, Tetrachloroethylene, Toxaphene, Trichloroethylene, and Vinyl chloride.

Reverse Osmosis Water

Reverse osmosis water filtration systems can remove some of the harmful contaminants from your drinking water. However, many of the smaller toxins are not filtered out. Also, this type of filter can take out important trace minerals such as calcium and magnesium, leaving water devoid of its therapeutic value.

Reverse osmosis is a process that puts water under pressure‚ to a semi-permeable membrane with a very fine pore structure. Because most inorganic contaminants are a larger molecular size than water‚ the membrane rejects certain contaminants‚ minerals and a large part of the water. The water that does passé through the pore structure is stripped of inorganic compounds and trace minerals. Because many synthetic chemicals like herbicides and pesticides are smaller‚ molecularly‚ than water... an R.O. system should be used in conjunction with a carbon filter. R.O. systems require extensive maintenance. Because most point-of-use R.O. systems produce less than 1 gal. per hour‚ they require a special storage tanks. Reverse osmosis wastes between 2 to 3 gallons of water for every gallon it produces.

Article
There are numerous disadvantages of reverse osmosis. We can quibble over functionality and intended purpose, but, "does reverse osmosis make water safe to drink" is the real question.

The Advantages of Reverse Osmosis:
Before we jump headfirst into the many disadvantages of reverse osmosis, we should take a moment to reflect on its strength. Desalination. If you want to drink from the ocean, reverse osmosis is really your only choice.

The Disadvantages of Reverse Osmosis:
Now, the first of the disadvantages of reverse osmosis is de-mineralization. A problem from a general health standpoint. No matter how contaminated, there are natural minerals in water which are important to the body. Reverse osmosis removes these natural minerals, leaving it without nutritional value.
Research has shown that drinking water that has been de-mineralized on a normal day to day basis will cause digestive problems and nutritional deficiencies. So if you think about it, does reverse osmosis make water safe to drink? So far I would say no, not at all.

Waste is another issue. This is shown by the fact that for every one gallon that is cleaned, anywhere from half a gallon to five gallons is wasted. This is one of the biggest disadvantages of reverse osmosis from an environmental or financial standpoint. It is also a waste of electricity, which runs up the costs of reverse osmosis. It costs more than the more efficient systems to operate and maintain.

Reverse osmosis is unable to filter chemical pollutants present all through the environment. Chemical contamination is one of the largest problems we face in our country today. Over a thousand cancer causing chemicals have been found in tested tap water. From a health standpoint this has got to be one of the biggest disadvantages of reverse osmosis. Another reason the answer is "no" to the question, "Does reverse osmosis make water safe to drink?"

Like the chemicals that get through, so does bacteria, referred to as a cyst when in their spore stage. These cysts are lighter than water, thus reverse osmosis can not block them. Cyst contamination may be possible in any water source. When people ingest cysts they can grow ill and have anything from a stomach ache to violent diarrhea. In children and the immunocompromised, cysts can cause death. Does reverse osmosis make water safe to drink? Can it even come close?

The last, but not least, of the disadvantages of reverse osmosis, is the price. There are so many systems out there that do a better job, and cost so much less, it is hard to figure out why reverse osmosis is still in the home market.

When all the disadvantages of reverse osmosis are tallied up, it really seems unbelievable that this process could ever be suggested for the private sector. There are so many problems, consequences, and flat out inadequacies that it can't be sanely advised for anything beyond its intended industrial and commercial application. Does reverse osmosis make water safe to drink? Unless you live in a fantasy world, where the only contaminate in your water is salt... Do we even need to answer?

David Everett is passionate about the quality of drinking water and dedicated to carrying out the necessary research to determine how to make our water safe to drink. Published At: Isnare.com Free Articles Directory - http://www.isnare.com/

Bottled Water

Bottled water usually tests at low pH levels. Bottling companies that use filters will greatly reduce the amounts of trace minerals considered to be essential to the human body. The bacterial count allowed in bottled beverages is higher than that allowed by the EPA for public treatment facilities. Up to 40 percent of bottled water that you buy in the store or vending machine is just filtered tap water!

The amount of chemicals found in bottled water depends on how long the beverage has been in the bottle, whether or not it was exposed to sunlight and what it was stored next to in the warehouse. 

A University of Iowa study which tested 39 brands of bottled water found that 75% of them contained chemicals, dissolved metals and other harmful pollutants. The study concluded that, "Bottled water is no better than tap water, and in some cases, even worse."

Article
What is bottled water?
“Description. Bottled water is water that is intended for human consumption and that is sealed in bottles or other containers with no added ingredients except that it may optionally contain safe and suitable antimicrobial agents. Fluoride may be optionally added within the limitations established.”

Who regulates what bottled water has in it?
The Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates bottled drinking water, which is classified as a “food”. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulates tap water. Amazingly, the EPA guidelines for municipal water are stricter than the FDA restrictions for bottled drinking water! You might buy bottled drinking water that is acceptable to the FDA but is not acceptable for use as ordinary tap water.
The FDA’s specific regulations for bottled water are found in Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations (21 CFR).

What are FDA standards?
Under the standard of quality (21 CFR, 165.110[b]), FDA allows certain levels of contaminants in bottled water.
Contaminants bottled water has in it.
1. Coliform. Coliform are rod-shaped bacteria, such as E. coli, that are normally present in the human intestine. The FDA says that bottled water may have up to 9.2 coliform organisms per 100 milliliters. See 21 CFR 165.110[b].
2. Arsenic. Arsenic is a poison. The FDA says that bottled water may have up to 0.05 milligrams per liter of arsenic. See 21 CFR 165.110[b].
3. Chloride. Chloride is a compound of chlorine, a substance used to disinfect tap water. The FDA allows up to 250.0 milligrams per liter of chloride in bottled water. See 21 CFR 165.110[b].
4. Iron. Iron is a metallic element. Your body needs some iron, but not too much. The FDA permits bottled water to contain up to 0.3 milligrams per liter of iron. See 21 CFR 165.110[b].
5. Manganese. Manganese resembles iron and is used in fertilizers. Bottled water may contain up to 0.05 milligrams per liter of manganese. See 21 CFR 165.110[b].
6. Phenols. Phenols are corrosive, poisonous acidic compounds. Your bottled water may contain up to 0.001 milligrams per liter of phenols. See 21 CFR 165.110[b].
7. Dissolved solids. “Dissolved solids” is a catch-all phrase. The FDA allows bottled water to contain up to 500 milligrams per liter of dissolved solids, of whatever type. See 21 CFR 165.110[b].
8. Zinc. Zinc is a metallic element. Your body needs some zinc, but not too much. The FDA permits bottled water to contain up to 5.0 milligrams per liter of zinc. See 21 CFR 165.110[b].
9. Fluoride. Fluoride is purposely added to some bottled water. If so, the label should say so. In addition, bottled water that is not labeled as containing fluoride may contain up to 2.4 milligrams per liter of fluoride. See 21 CFR 165.110[b].

Chemical contaminants bottled water has in it.
The FDA allows set levels of the following chemical contaminants in all bottled water. Amounts vary, but some are shocking, such as Barium. FDA regulations permit up to 2.0 milligrams per liter of barium. That is nearly the same as natural fluorides, even though barium is a toxic metallic element. Cyanide, another poison, is permitted in bottled water. See 21 CFR 165.110[b].
Here is a sampling of chemical contaminants bottled water has in it, along with the permitted milligrams per liter.
* Barium.................................... 2.0
* Chromium.................................. 0.1
* Copper.................................... 1.0
* Cyanide................................... 0.2
* Nickel.................................... 0.1
* Ethylbenzene (100-41-4)................... 0.7
* Monochlorobenzene (108-90-7).............. 0.1
* Styrene (100-42-5)........................ 0.1
* Toluene (108-88-3)........................ 1.0
* Xylenes (1330-20-7)....................... 10.0

Pesticides bottled water has in it.
The FDA allows set levels of pesticides in bottled water. There are set limits for each of 29 different pesticides. People who purchase bottled water believe, normally, that they are avoiding pesticides by doing so. For a listing of these pesticides, see 21 CFR 165.110[b].
Disinfectants bottled water has in it.
The FDA allows bottled water to contain set levels of residual disinfectants and disinfection byproducts. Examples from 21 CFR 165.110[b]:
* Disinfection byproducts ...................
Bromate................................. 0.010
Chlorite................................ 1.0
Haloacetic acids (five) (HAA5).......... 0.060
Total Trihalomethanes (TTHM)............ 0.080
* Residual disinfectants ...................
Chloramine.............................. 4.0 (as Cl2)
Chlorine................................ 4.0 (as Cl2)
Chlorine dioxide........................ 0.8 (as ClO2)

Radioactive materials bottled water has in it.
The FDA allows bottled water to contain set levels of radioactive material. See 21 CFR 165.110[b]. Three examples:
* “The bottled water shall not contain a combined radium-226 and radium-228 activity in excess of 5 picocuries per liter of water.”
* “The bottled water shall not contain a gross alpha particle activity in excess of 15 picocuries per liter of water.”
* “The bottled water shall not contain uranium in excess of 30 micrograms per liter of water.”

Bottled water has in it more than regulations allow.

When bottled water does not meet the standards set out by the FDA, it might still be sold. By law, it should bear a suitable label.
Examples:
1. “Contains Excessive Bacteria”
2. “Contains Excessive Arsenic”
3. “Excessively Radioactive”

What You Can Do
* Take time to know what bottled water has in it.
* Look for bottlers’ web sites and compare information.
* Write to bottlers with specific questions.
* Remember that bottled water does not mean absolute purity.
* Be sure yours is healthy drinking water.

Filtered Water

It is difficult to find one filter that does everything: many reverse osmosis filters take out fluoride, but also the healthy minerals. Many of the high-end carbon filters will not remove fluoride or nitrates, but leave the healthy minerals. This results in demineralized water which is not considered ideal drinking water.

The World Health Organization investigated the health effects of demineralized water in 1980, and its experiments in humans found that demineralized water increased diuresis and the elimination of electrolytes, with decreased serum potassium concentration. Magnesium, calcium and other nutrients in water can help to protect against nutritional deficiency. Demineralized water may also increase the risk from toxic metals because it more readily absorbs them, and because the presence of calcium and magnesium in water can prevent absorption of lead and cadmium.

Purified water lacks minerals and ions, such as calcium, which are normally found in potable (drinking) water, and which have important biological functions such as in nervous system homeostasis.
The truth is, no formal studies comparing distilled with mineral water have been done, but thinking about the Hunzas and their 120-year lifespan that was attributed to the glacial mineral waters they drank, one can see the value of minerals in drinking water.

A high-end water filter should take this discussion into consideration and give reasons about the importance or unimportance of filtering out certain minerals.
This study shows even to its detractors that we get important daily required intake of certain trace minerals from water.

Comparison of the Mineral Content of Tap Water and Bottled Waters
Azoulay, Arik; Garzon, Philippe; Eisenberg, Mark (2001). "Comparison of the Mineral Content of Tap Water and Bottled Waters". Journal of General Internal Medicine 16 (3): pp. 168–175.

OBJECTIVES: Because of growing concern that constituents of drinking water may have adverse health effects, consumption of tap water in North America has decreased and consumption of bottled water has increased. Our objectives were to 1) determine whether North American tap water contains clinically important levels of calcium (Ca2+), magnesium (Mg2+), and sodium (Na+) and 2) determine whether differences in mineral content of tap water and commercially available bottled waters are clinically important.

DESIGN: We obtained mineral analysis reports from municipal water authorities of 21 major North American cities. Mineral content of tap water was compared with published data regarding commercially available bottled waters and with dietary reference intakes (DRIs).

MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: Mineral levels varied among tap water sources in North America and among bottled waters. European bottled waters generally contained higher mineral levels than North American tap water sources and North American bottled waters. For half of the tap water sources we examined, adults may fulfill between 8% and 16% of their Ca2+ DRI and between 6% and 31% of their Mg2+ DRI by drinking 2 liters per day. One liter of most moderate mineralization European bottled waters contained between 20% and 58% of the Ca2+ DRI and between 16% and 41% of the Mg2+ DRI in adults. High mineralization bottled waters often contained up to half of the maximum recommended daily intake of Na+.

CONCLUSION: Drinking water sources available to North Americans may contain high levels of Ca2+, Mg2+, and Na+ and may provide clinically important portions of the recommended dietary intake of these minerals. Physicians should encourage patients to check the mineral content of their drinking water, whether tap or bottled, and choose water most appropriate for their needs.

Distilled Water

The process of distilled water is when water that passes over a heated coil‚ causing the it to vaporize and become gaseous. The steam then rises and transfers to a cooling chamber‚ where it condenses back into a liquid. This process separates water from inorganic compounds like lead‚ calcium‚ magnesium, etcetera. Distillation also destroys bacteria. Distillation, however is not very effective at removing organic chemicals. The reason is that organic chemicals vaporize at a lower temperature than water and are transferred in the steam thus ending up in the water. A distiller should always be used in conjunction with some sort of filter process. Distillers also produce water at a very slow rate.

The ideal water for the human body should be slightly alkaline and this requires the presence of minerals like calcium and magnesium. Distilled water tends to be acidic and can only be recommended as a way of drawing poisons out of the body. Once this is accomplished, the continued drinking of distilled water is a bad idea.  Zoltan P Rona MD MSc

Other drawbacks to this method are that the user must clean the equipment carefully after each use and keep surfaces absolutely sterile to avoid adding impurities during the process.
It may seem logical that distilled water would be safer to drink than any other water, the benefits or dangers of using distilled water for consumption are hotly debated. Those who argue for distilling claim that it’s the safest form of water. Those who argue against, insist that distilling depletes the water of trace elements and minerals that occur naturally in clean water.

Clearly, distillation is valuable in the removal of potentially deadly Volatile Organic Compounds and Nitrates. Although, distillation strips water of nearly all its natural minerals. Many of the minerals in the distillation process which are removed are vital to the body’s natural processes. The distillation process is not selective in its removal of minerals, and it strips water of both dangerous and valuable mineral compounds.
Distilled water is perhaps the cleanest version of bottled water available, but it is not good for human consumption.

Dear Friends

Because of modern farming methods and a reluctance to re-mineralize the soil and rotate crops, the earth our food is grown on has become mineral deficient. If soil doesn't have the proper minerals then the foods that grow from it won't yield crops that are rich in minerals. Since our bodies need absorbable minerals to perform most of their function, we will see a breakdown of the immune system and increase in disease. It is that simple!

Supplement Charge was formulated because people are not able to properly assimilate nutrients from food and their associate vitamins without the presence of a mineral rich blood. By adding our pH balancing product Supplement Charge to your water you will help restore to the body... what was normally supplied by food grown in mineral rich soil. In addition, the added compounds in Supplement Charge help to raise the pH of water which assists the body in maintaining homeostasis and a proper acid/alkaline balance. Without this balance the body cannot function as designed. It's a pH Miracle!
