What's in your drinking water?
Many prominent scientists are alarmed by the content of some
drinking water and actively seek to change the processes involved.
The practice of making water safe to drink actually involves
adding large amounts of extremely poisonous chemicals to it.
Key scientists are now providing evidence that long-term ingestion
of small amounts of chemicals like these could be the cause of
some major health problems.
Here is a list of just a few of the chemicals
routinely added to our water supply:
- Liquified chlorine
- Fluorosilicic acid
- Aluminium sulphate
- Calcium hydroxide
- Sodium silicofluoride
Even if the water leaves the source in a relatively clean
state, don't forget that your water travels through pipes,
which may have been underground since Victorian times. It is
almost impossible for the water not to become contaminated
by something undesirable.
in Tap Water
Tap water is treated with a large number of
chemicals in order to kill bacteria and other microorganisms.
In addition, it may contain other undesirable contaminants like
toxic metal salts, hormones and pesticides, or it may become
contaminated by chemicals or microbes within pipes (e.g. lead,
Typical Tap Water Content:
- Fluorine compounds
- Trihalomethanes (THMs)
- Salts of:
Testing Your Own Water
You can assess the quality of your water by testing for Total
Dissolved Solids (TDS) with a TDS meter which reads the TDS
instantly and gives a read-out in parts per million (ppm) TDS.
Generally, water with a TDS of 500 ppm or more is regarded
as unfit for consumption. Most tap water ranges from 150 to
420 ppm TDS. A Reverse Osmosis system typically produces water
with a TDS of 90 - 95% of the incoming water.
If you would like to purchase your own TDS meter (£15.00 + p&p £1.99),
Fluoride in water
Another very important health hazard is fluoride,
which is added by some water authorities in the UK, and is also
present in many toothpastes and mouthwashes. Around 10% of the
UKs water supply is fluoridated, despite a huge and ever-growing
body of evidence that the science behind this mass medication
programme is questionable to say the least.
Fluoridation of water is banned in all other European countries. (see the Flouride
Action Network - Statements from European Health Authorities).
