How Clean is Your Drinking Water?

How Clean is Your Drinking Water

By, Joanne Troppello

Water is our most precious resource. Our bodies are comprised of two-thirds water. Water can be found in our blood, tissues and throughout our body.

Just as our cars need oil for lubrication, so do our bodies need water for lubrication. If we didn’t have water, we’d be dried up and wouldn’t exist. Bottom-line: we need water in order to live. It’s that simple.

So easily we go to our faucets each day or refrigerator water dispensers or drink from bottled water.

When we drink water from these sources each day, do we think about how clean our water is?

Obviously, if our water was coming out of the faucets brown-colored and smelling foul, we’d be on the phone with the water company to get the problem fixed.

However, even if our water looks clean and smells clean and tastes passably good, is it really clean? How safe is the water we are drinking? When we realize how important water is to us, maybe then we’ll realize that it’s vitally important to know without a doubt that our water is absolutely clean and safe.

If you have a water filtration system linked to your water supply to your house, that’s great for you and your family. If you don’t or can’t afford a big filtration system for your house, looking into a small filter for your faucet or even getting a filtered water pitcher would help out. The water that is sent from the township to your house is supposedly “clean”; however, are you absolutely certain exactly how clean it is or isn’t?

One important thing you should do is to get your home’s water tested.

It’s vitally important for you to know if there are harmful chemicals like pesticides, heavy metals or other such industrial pollutants.

“Up to 20% of human lead exposure comes from drinking water.” (Shaklee 2012, pg. 104) Just remember that it is easy to get cleaner, safer drinking water. Purchase one of the filtered water pitchers or other filter systems already mentioned.

For those who are environmentally friendly, drinking from water bottles is not always the best option since you are daily adding waste, i.e., plastic bottles—to the planet. If you do drink from plastic water bottles, be sure to recycle and try to purchase water bottles that are made with recycled plastic and also ones which use less plastic per bottle.

Another option for daily drinking is to use water bottles that have filters in the individual bottle. Also, daily using stainless steel bottles is better for cleaner, safer water than drinking from plastic bottles.
