How does the quality of your drinking water effect your health? We can best illustrate this point with a simple experiment. Plants. Let’s say you have two tomato plants of the exact same age and height and plant them in pots on your patio. One plant is given tap water exclusively and the other distilled water exclusively.

As the plants grow, you will notice that the plant that is provided with only distilled water will grow faster, taller and be more fruitful. How can this be? Well, like the arteries and veins within our bodies, plants use their root systems to draw nutrients and moisture needed to flourish. Nutrients come from the surrounding soil and by providing that plant with a known water, you are ensuring that there are no dissolved solids or herbicides that can cause harm to the plant or hinder it’s natural processes. The distilled water keeps the roots open like a straw which allows the plant to draw in more nutrients more easily than the plant given tap water. The plant that is given tap water exclusively will take longer to grow and in all likelihood produce less fruit. This is because the quality of tap water is inconsistent.

Tap water can also contain industrial by-products, chlorine, fluoride, pesticides / herbicides, biological contaminants (viruses / bacteria), prescription medications, hormones, arsenic and lead along with other chemicals that have been added as “disinfectants” to treat the water for consumption.

Just like the pipes in your house, your arteries and veins (as well as vital organs) will, over time, become clogged with dissolved solids from your drinking water. Dissolved solids include not only the list above of contaminants but inorganic minerals as well. Inorganic minerals are those found in the ground that cannot be processed by the human body. Such as, iron, magnesium, calcium and salt. Think of an iron nail representing inorganic iron. A person could suck on that nail like a lollipop from now until the end of time and not receive any beneficial iron whatsoever. The iron, magnesium, calcium and salts that we CAN utilize come from vegetables like broccoli, spinach, corn, beans and even tomatoes.

The only living thing on earth that can utilize these inorganic minerals and convert them into organic minerals are the plants that we just discussed above. We then in turn need to eat the plants or the animals that have eaten the plants in order to receive the benefits of those vitamins and minerals.

Companies that are trying to convince you that you NEED the minerals in water to maintain overall good health are relying on the fact that consumers are uneducated about water or simply are willing to believe what they see in a flashy ad campaign.

Consuming plants (fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, seeds and whole grains) and pure quality drinking water is what keeps us healthy. If we consume inorganic minerals, our bodies will reject them and they will settle and deposit on our joints, in our circulatory system, and our vital organs; including the heart and the brain. As this plaque builds up, it puts more strain on those systems to function properly and can lead to serious health problems. New research studies are showing that dissolved inorganic solids deposited in brain tissues may be a link to Alzheimer’s. We all know the devastating effects of hardening of the arteries and heart disease. These deposits also cause arthritis, glaucoma, bone / joint degeneration and have even been linked to kidney, liver and thyroid disease as well as kidney/ gall stones. We actually have the highest rate of bladder cancer (per capita) in all the United States right here in the stateline area.

Start today to bring pure drinking water into your life and the lives of your loved ones to help prevent unnecessary illness. Take a hint from our friends the plants and drink to your good health!
