Distilled Water - How Pure Is It ?

How pure is distilled water? Well, when you use a quality water distiller with post carbon filtration it is 99.9% pure of contaminants. No other water purification works as well as distillation in removing :  heavy metals, chemicals and microorganisms.
It is hard for some people to accept the fact that distilled water is the best you can consume long term, because everyone is always looking for the "new thing". Yes, you can shake your water, blow bubbles in it, stir it into a vortex, soak it in rocks, so on and so forth, you get the point -what you need is pure water. Water in it's purest state- contains 2 parts hydrogen and 1 part oxygen - that is it.  You can eat organic fruits and vegetables for life and vitality and drink pure water for great health.

Well Water Woes

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) reports that 43 million people, 14% of the nation's population, rely on their own water supply. Although the EPA regulates public water systems, it has no authority over drinking water from private wells. This means that well owners are responsible for ensuring the safety of their water.

Common groundwater contaminants include an almost endless list of inorganic chemicals, volatile organic compounds, microbes, lead, copper, radon, nitrates, pesticides, petroleum and others. Principal sources of ground water contamination are farming operations, industrial factories, municipal landfills, animal feedlots, septic systems and cesspool effluents.

In tests conducted by the USGS, more than 20% of privately owned wells contained at least one contaminant at a potentially unsafe  level. USGS based its report on samples from 2,100 wells taken from 30 aquifers in 48 states. Radon and arsenic were frequently measured at elevated concentrations in areas near crystalline-rock aquifers. Bacteria were found in as many as one-third of a subset of 400 wells, indicating fecal contamination.

A study by the University of Alabama presented at the American Urological Society's annual meeting in April 2009 suggests that drinking well water with pesticide contamination may increase the risk of bladder cancer. This is of special concern for those who live close to farms or golf courses that may use large quantities of pesticides and fertilizers.

Well owners need to be aware of potential health problems and take the necessary steps to safeguard their familys' drinking water. The USGS study underscores the need for regular testing as well as the need for reliable treatment for the plethora of common contaminants.

Waterwise has found the answer to rid your drinking water contaminants: Purity Made Simple, water that is up to 99% free of impurities, including heavy metals, chemicals and microorganisms.

Water....A Well Deserved Reputation

It's a small wonder that water is called the "elixir of life." Many ancient civilizations- from the Egyptians and Greeks to the Chinese and Native Americans-used water as therapy to heal injuries and treat diseases.
You see, water also helps to:
> Aid in proper digestion
> Improve oxygen delivery
> Remove toxins and waste products
> Transport and increase nutrient absorption
> Cushion and lubricate joints
> Regulate body temperature
> Generate cellular energy
> Improve immune function
Obviously, when we don't drink enough water we risk negative health issues. Just as clearly, if you do drink clean, pure water you can give your health a boost - throughout life.

Where there's a will, there's a way

First, we have to face some facts. (Fair warning, some of them are rather startling.) For example, an astonishing 2,100 chemical compounds have been found in our water, yet the EPA has established enforceable safety standards for only 87!

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that up to  "33 million cases of gastrointestinal illness associated with public drinking water systems occur in the U.S. annually."
Many municipalities, as hard as they try, simply aren't equipped to handle the influx of modern waste, oil spills, etc. - into our public water supply.

Home water pipes and water distribution systems are often caked on the inside with unhealthy inorganic, biological and chemical deposits. In some cases, these pipes might even leach toxic levels of copper and lead.

Another threat lurking inside these older pipes is biofilm-layers of bacteria that can harbor pathogens like E. coli. Even well water doesn't escape contamination because ground water pollutants may also seep into that source.

The answer is action, not fear

The reason for sharing these facts is not to generate fear, but to provide information and encouragement for you to take positive action.

Ask yourself, "Over the course of my life, how will these chemicals and trace pollutants affect my health and that of my family?" It is likely you will drink approximately 2,920 glasses (183 gallons) of water every year. There could be undetected contaminants in each glass you drink-having a cumulative negative impact on your health. Can you possibly think of a better reason to be certain the water you and your family drinks is reliable, 100% homemade steam distilled?

A Wise Investment in Your Health

First of all, it is impossible to put a price on peace of mind and the joy of living a healthy life. Second, it is also impossible to think of any element that supports a healthy life more than water and maintaining an adequate level of hydration is essential for the efficient regulation of your body's normal physiological functions. When that hydration is supplied by steam distilled water, the benefits can be enormous.

 Eight glasses a day of purified water helps:
* Heighten energy
* Sharpen mental performance
* Improve skin appearance
* Promote weight loss
* Reduce stress, anxiety and depression
* Relieve headaches and dizzy spells
* Alleviate asthma, allergy and arthritis symptoms

The heart of the matter
Consider this fact first. The human heart is 79% water. Now, consider this finding from a recent study. Eight glasses a day of purified water also bolsters heart health. According to a six-year study of more than 20,000 healthy men and women aged 38 to 100, published in the May 1, 2002, American Journal of Epidemiology, the women who drank more than five glasses of water a day were 41% less likely to die from heart attack than those who drank less than two glasses. The heart benefits were even greater in men.

Pure Clean Water: Interesting Findings Abound, The President's Cancer Panel 2008-2009 Annual Report

Pure Clean Water: Interesting Findings Abound, The President's Cancer Panel 2008-2009 Annual Report

Interesting Findings Abound, The President's Cancer Panel 2008-2009 Annual Report

Wow, what a great informative report, "Reducing Environmental Cancer Risk". I just finished reading the 2008-2009 Annual Report - President's Cancer Panel, Published April 2010.
The very first thing I did after reading the report was highlight the word WATER, it is mentioned 205 times! I find it very responsible that the writers of the report made the large acknowledgement of water, given the title  "Reducing Environmental Cancer Risk -What We Can Do Now". A staggering statistic is found in the Overview: "Approximately 41 percent of people in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives, and about 21 percent of Americans will die from cancer".(fn2)

 The most important statement is made near the beginning of the report is found on pg iv,
" Disinfection of public water supplies has dramatically reduced the incidence of waterborne illnesses and related mortality in the United States, but research indicates that long-term exposure to disinfection by-products such as trihalomethanes may increase cancer risk". On page xix, under the Title: What Individuals Can Do: Recommendations- Filtering home tap or well water can decrease exposure to numerous known or suspected carcinogens and endocrine-disrupting chemicals."

The report spells out in detail the leading causes of drinking water contamination, including but not exclusive to : pharmaceuticals, heavy metals, petrochemicals, man-made organic chemicals and compounds, all have direct links to contributing to developing cancer.  " We use 80 million pounds [of atrazine] annually in the United States. It's the number-one pesticide contaminant of ground water, surface water and drinking water. It's used in more than 80 countries but it's now outlawed in all of Europe or, as the company like to say, has been denied regulatory approval. The main point here is that here's a compound that we use 80 million pounds of, and its illegal in the home country of the company that makes it".  Tyrone Hayes. University of California, Berkeley
   This particular statement of facts is mind blowing, that the U.S. officials and citizens have so little regard for health, we allow our food and water to be direct links to our bodies developing cancer.

I was truly impressed with research and facts of the report, I urge you to go online and read it for yourself. There are numerous facts and recommendations that anyone can apply to everyday life, to reduce the amount of cancer causing materials and chemicals we expose ourselves and our children to on a daily basis.
If you are more engaged after reading the information, another website I highly recommend you visit : The Environmental Working Group:

Yours for optimal health,
