The tap water in Philadelphia has parasites in it so that is not good water to drink. Tap water contains chlorine which kills bacteria but is very bad for you to drink. The book, Natural Cures (� 2004) by Kevin Trudeau, says "All tap water is poisonous. All tap water is loaded with chlorine and chlorine by-products. Chlorine scars your arteries and, along with hydrogenated oil and homogenized dairy products, causes heart disease. Most tap water also has fluoride , which is one of the most poisonous and disease causing agents [that] you can put in your body. Do not drink or use tap water except for washing your floor." Tap water is not pure drinking water.
The purpose of water is not nutrition. The purpose of water is to transport things. It brings the nutrition in and the waste out. You can have sex in a car but that is not the purpose of a car. The purpose of a car is so the Transporter (guy in movie) can do his job.
There are 2 kinds of bottled water. There is spring water and distilled water. Spring water means any water that is potable meaning any water that you can drink without getting sick which includes tap water. Spring water that is from a spring has minerals in it. But these have come from rocks or an animal's urine. Distilled water is pure drinking water that has been evaporated and condensed leaving behind all impurities except things that evaporate at a lower temperature than water. In chemical experiments, where they need very pure water, they use triple distilled water.
The purpose of water is not to provide you with inorganic minerals like from rocks and stones. Organic means something that is or was alive. You are supposed to get organic minerals from food. Biology teaches that animals consume foods and plants create foods out of air, water, sunlight and minerals (including inorganic minerals). The purpose of water is for transportation so pure drinking water is the best.
Water filters leave in many impurities including dissolved minerals like sodium. They can make a gallon of water from tap water in less than a minute so they are quick. Those filters where the water goes right through the filter, take out only some of the bad stuff like the chlorine in the water but they let salt and many harmful chemicals pass right through including every acid. Any substance which dissolves in water (most chemicals) passes right through these filters. None of the above (tap, spring or filtered water) are able to be used in chemical experiments. This is not pure drinking water. They only use triple distilled water. All liquid medicines are made with distilled water.
Water distillers have carbon filters with them to take out those things that evaporate with the water. It takes about 6 hours to make a gallon of water using electricity. Some are made where you use a fire under it. It produces almost pure water. You can buy one for around $200. The equivalent to this in nature is rainwater which is condensed water that had evaporated. Distilled water is pure drinking water.
Water purifiers (also called reverse osmosis purifiers) use a semi-permeable membrane similar to what is in your kidneys. Water with impurities flow on one side and it lets the pure water flow to the other side. It uses the water pressure in tap water and the water with impurities flows out another tube into the drain. They usually have a sediment filter and carbon filter attached to it. It creates almost pure water. It takes about 1 hour to make a gallon of water. The pressure in the tap water system is free so you are not paying for energy to purify it. But the complaint in areas where there is not an abundance of water, is that it wastes water since a lot of it goes down the drain. You can buy one for around $350. At one Whole Foods store they sell plastic bottles that you can buy and re-use and fill them up with the water from their water purifier. Whole Foods is the largest natural foods chain in the country and one of the top 100 companies to work for and they have chosen R/O purified water to sell.
Dr Paul Bragg ND, PhD says in The Shocking Truth About Water, "The greatest damage done by inorganic minerals-- plus waxy cholesterol and salt-- is to the small arteries and other blood vessels of the brain. Hardening of the arteries and calcification of the blood vessels starts on the day you start taking inorganic chemicals (and minerals from tap water) into our bodies."
a website, it said that no where in the world does water without
minerals exist. As soon as rainwater hits the curb and makes a puddle,
it has minerals in it. But is that what you want to drink? As the rain
is falling it is just like distilled water. It is pure with no minerals
in it. But if put this water on the curb, it will no longer be clean.
Any filter that minerals pass through also lets many harmful chemicals
pass through like hydrochloric acid. If someone is afraid of drinking
pure water with no minerals in it, they can make a tea with it and then
you will be choosing the nutrients that go in the water. It could be
decaf green tea or an herbal tea. I drink a tea with no caffeine in it
but with herbs from the Amazon rainforest like cats claw, jatoba and
stone breaker (chanca piedra). Joel Fuhrman, MD, has been fasting
people on only water for 3 decades. He uses distilled spring water.
This is very pure drinking water.
Some people will say that water needs minerals in it like in spring water from a spring. But these minerals can come from all sorts of bad places like from urine and worse. See this to learn that There is a Difference Between Minerals from Foods and Non-Foods. Spring water from a spring can have many pollutants in it. To get minerals from a food in your water, you can just make tea with your pure water. See link below about the health benefits of green tea. Green tea is the most alkaline food that there is.
You can drink tea all day. That is what the Chinese do. They do not drink water. You can sweeten the tea with stevia. You can also squeeze some lemon juice in it. Whole Foods markets has their 365 brand of a tea made with organic green tea, organic yerba mate and organiic peppermint ($3.99 for 40 tea bags). Yerba mate tea is very healthy and I like the taste better than green tea so I drink the mix above from Whole Foods. Yerba mate is the most popular drink in most of South America. See Health Benefits of Yerba Mate Tea.
Some fruits contain a great deal of water. As far as getting nutrients from drinking something with hardly any calories there are unsweetened teas. You can sweeten them with an herb called stevia (liquid or powder form) that has hardly any calories-- at health food stores. You can make a tea with plants other than the tea plant. In China they drink a tea made with the tea plant which includes green, white or black tea. In Korea, they drink tea all day made with roasted corn or barley.
There is a naturally sweet tea from Africa called Rooibos tea (see link at bottom). It is very high in antioxidants and has no caffeine. They have been drinking it in Africa for over 200 years. It only grows in the Cape region of South Africa. According to Prescription for Herbal Healing, it is an antiviral, antianxiety and antiallergy agent. It is good for allergies, stress, HIV/AIDS, insomnia and restless leg syndrome.
The human body is based on 5 and phi-- the golden ratio. The torso has 5 appendages. Each limb has 5 appendages. The face has 5 holes in it. Raise 5 to the 0.5 power (the square root of 5). Multiply it by 0.5 and add 0.5 and you get phi. All animals are based on phi. It is the ratio where when you divide something into 2 parts, the larger part is to the smaller part as the whole is to the larger part. Divide the smaller part into the larger part and you get a number larger than 1 (1.6180339...). Divide the larger number into the smaller number and you get the same number without the 1 (0.6180339...). In other words the inverse of phi is the same number but without the 1. The length of your head compared to the width of your head, the length of your upper body (above navel) compared to the length of your lower body and the length of your lower arm compared to the length of your upper arm are just some of the places on your body that have the golden ratio.
