Water

Clean water is necessary for a healthy body and for our life itself. It is this world’s most valuable asset.

Public water systems provide 90% of US drinking water.

EPA  and  state and local laws regulate purity of water and set minimum quality standards for water purification.

Because water is an excellent solvent, it often contains beneficial minerals such as calcium or harmful minerals such as lead.  In removing the harmful minerals, we can remove the beneficial minerals.

Hard water has high concentrations of minerals: calcium and magnesium.  Soft water has high sodium content. Although  water suppliers (usually municipalities)  often  adjust the  minerals to cater to the soft-water preferences  of  most consumers,  no one really needs more sodium in their  diet.  
  What does water do for our life and to keep us alive.

Water:

  • Acts as a solvent
  • Acts as a carrier
  • Transports nutrients
  • Maintains body temperature
  • Moves metabolic waste through sweat and urine
  • Lubricates joints
  • Gives form to cells
  • Serves as a medium for thousands of chemical reactions in our bodies.

Because water is an excellent solvent, it often contains beneficial minerals such as calcium or harmful minerals such as lead.

In removing the harmful minerals, we can remove the beneficial minerals. For this and other reasons, some experts suggest that  drinking distilled water is less than wise.  Other experts say the opposite, so each person must make up his/her own.

We  can  get some water by eating foods that are high  in  water but most of our water will come from drinking eight to ten glasses of water each day.
