Data from the National Resources Defense Council indicate that ⅓ of Americans (nearly 77 million) were served water that violated the Safe Water Drinking Act. These violations included exceeding health-based standards, failing to test water for contaminants properly, and failing to report contamination to state authorities or the public. Hospitalizations are caused by contaminated water. (Find Study about USA water here). This is already a huge problem to be solved in our country. After all, tap water can often not be as good as you expect.
The dangers of tap water.
Pre-treated water, piped and delivered to your tap is the one that supplies about 90% of the population with access to drinking water in America.
Even though the treatment plants are much more developed than years ago, with more modern technologies and more efficient treatments, the quality of the water that reaches us is not even close to being ideal for our health.
It is true that water sometimes reaches us, without color, without smell and without flavor, which we were taught to be the characteristics of drinking water and that only this would already make it perfect, but this is not real. It can hide very great dangers even when it arrives at your home.
This element is mandatory in the treatment that the water stations do in the water. It is responsible for eliminating bacteria and other biological contaminants that can cause serious illness. But, it is not only dangerous for microorganisms, it is extremely harmful to human health as well. A multitude of diseases can be caused, triggered or enhanced by the consumption of chlorine, from allergies to cancer.
"But if it is so dangerous, why is it still used?"
It is used because it is still the cheapest form of "purification" of water in gigantic quantities. The ‘catch-22 is in the need to remove chlorine before we ingest water, that is, it arrives at your tap with chlorine, but you MUST remove it before using it.
A cocktail of poison
Another problem, much more serious, present in the water of the Environmental Working Group (EWG) found alarming levels of chromium-6 (the carcinogenic "Erin Brockovich" chemical) in drinking water that nearly 200 million Americans drink, from all 50 states. Chromium-6 is far from the only water pollutant. Our water can contain varying levels of other contaminants such as arsenic, lead, and mercury. Yes, that's what you read, you may be turning on your tap to drink a glass of water and, in fact, be drinking a cocktail of 27 different pesticides. (Learn more here)
How to improve tap water?
There are several ways to improve the quality of your tap water, some more efficient than others, but only one is ideal, because in addition to filtering and eliminating contaminants, it makes a complete natural transformation in the water so that it will have the characteristics to be considered perfect, which are:
Water needs to have high doses of alkaline minerals like potassium and magnesium, which is so important that health professionals call it the mineral of life.
Really good water needs to have reduced ORP, which indicates that it is antioxidant, that is, it helps to delay the process of premature aging, in addition to helping to fight degenerative diseases.
It is very important to remove everything negative from the water before consuming it, eliminate heavy metals, chlorine, poisons and everything else that is present, but always keeping the beneficial substances. Remember that water with nothing is dead water.
Alkaline water is one that has a pH greater than 7 and this helps to keep your body regulated and has numerous benefits. Click here and learn all about the pH of the water.
Much more than being alkaline, water needs to have an alkalizing power. This power is measured through the mathematical term of PRAL, the Potential Renal Acid Load, this is the ability of the liquid to remain alkaline regardless of external conditions. This means that it stays alkaline even when in stress environments. Click here to know the concept of PRAL and why it can change your life.
Now you may be thinking that it is impossible to take ordinary tap water and turn it into something as perfect as the one described above, but I must tell you that it is not only possible but extremely easy.
You need to have a filter that delivers alkaline ionized water. It is the guarantee of perfect water for you and your health.
