Would You Drink Raw Water?

Would You Drink Raw Water?”

Municipal water systems treat water to kill bacteria, usually with chlorine. At present, the price is $36.99 for a 2.5 gallon jug. Unfiltered water can carry a number of diseases such as Hepatitis A and cholera. You can see evidence of it just about everywhere, including internet-connected juicers and new medical "breakthroughs", but rarely is a new trend as obviously flawed as "raw water". He claims his water "expires" after a few months, assuring him a constant supply of new customers who can never stock up on ethereal power.

To Indians, this may not seem unusual as the majority of us drink groundwater daily but in the USA, the authorities started supplying treated water to houses as early as the year 1908.

Chloramine is a disinfectant that cleans water and has been used by many public utilities since before World War II, the U.S.

"Nearly everything conceivable that can make you sick can be found in water". "We celebrate this ancient life source that humanity flourished from, since the beginning of our existence", the Live Water website says. We have no idea how many lurk in raw water sources. However, people seem to be extremely afraid of all these processes and additional substances, so they started drinking raw water.

Before it comes out of a faucet in a home, tap water has generally gone through several stages of processing, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. That's why every time you turn the tap for a drink you don't have to ask "hmm, will this refresh me or infect me with something frightful?"

While not quite a mainstream diet craze as of yet, raw water, as it has been coined recently in a New York Times article, has been picking up steam and there are new companies cropping up every day trying to profit on the potential health fad that may be looming on the horizon.

Doug Evans, who said he subsists on an organic, plant-based diet, said he has been drinking raw water for almost two decades now. Then come filtration and disinfection to remove bacteria, parasites and so on.

Those who sell it hold that all this virginal unprocessed-ness is super good for you.

Obviously, tap water is not flawless or uniformly safe-and that's one of the reasons cited by "raw water" proponents for why someone might want to opt-out of the water grid. Another company, Tourmaline Spring in ME, sells 12 one-liter bottles for $36.

Evans said others should make their own decision about what to drink.

"The pundits will say water is H2O, but I think as you break it down, there's a lot more to it. And I feel very vibrant on its consumption".
