August 13, 2012 - You’ve probably read countless articles about the horrendous quality of tap water and its numerous contaminants that attack your biology and have been tied to a multitude of health ailments. It is very rare, however, that you can actually see just how terribly polluted your tap water truly is. In the video above, I show you the ‘overflow’ tray of my 12 stage water filtration device that collects the excess amount of gunk that the filters discharge. In other words, this is actually the extra amount of build up amounted from 12 different stages of water filtration and it’s still disturbingly-putrid.
It’s easy to imagine what the rest of the heavy metals, parasites, chemicals, fecal matter, drug residue, dirt, dust, and urine contamination would look like that are cleared by the filters. I may do some future videos showing the insides of the filters as well just to give you an idea. Upon pulling out the reverse osmosis filter, it’s pretty easy to screw open the top and see a whole lot of brown residue quite similar to that of the video.
I imagine one response many reading this might have is ‘well why doesn’t my water filter look like this?’ The first question you should ask yourself is whether or not you have a really serious high quality filtration device. If you’re using something cheap like a Brita filter that you picked up from your local supermarket, you’re not going to see anything near this amount of captured toxins. Why? Because cheap Brita filters don’t grab very much from the tap water you’re drinking, and allows virtually 100% of the fluoride and other heavy metals to pass right on through.
Drink the Right Kind of Water
It’s no secret that drinking tap water is a recipe for disease thanks to harsh chemicals and heavy metals, but what are the alternatives? You may be under the impression that super cheap and low quality filtration systems (think Brita counter top filters) are the answer. Ultimately, these plastic system (which may even contain BPA) do not filter most heavy metals or chemicals. And what about bottled water? Well, it turns out that bottled water is simply expensive tap water thanks to an extensive report into the industry.
Instead of wasting time and money on poor quality alternative to tap water, you have a few options:
1) Purchase an atmospheric water generator such as the machines created by the Ecoloblue company (no incentive was given for this recommendation or any other within this article).
2) Retrieve fresh and real spring water from near your home with glass gallon jugs which can be found via the website Find a Spring.
3) Obtain a high quality reverse osmosis water filtration device and add minerals or Himalayan sea salt back into the water after it passes through the filter.
Each of these options are highly effective, and the Find a Spring option is entirely free. Therefore, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be drinking the right kind of water. Even if you don’t want to drive a short distance away from a spring, a reverse osmosis filter can be purchased for a relatively low price. When it comes to seriously feeling better each day and conquering disease, the value of the product ultimately becomes more apparent. All in all, this simple change will take all of 5 seconds to act upon. It takes even less than 5 seconds to type in your zip code on the spring locator site and decide to change your water habits for life.
