Microscopic DANGER Hiding in Your Water?
A patient of mine, we’ll call her “Mary”, walked into my office one day, looking rather disheveled.
She dropped her purse onto the floor, pulled out a water bottle and took a big swig.
Seeing this, I quietly suggested that she might want to make another choice about what she was drinking.
“What’s wrong with water?” she said. “I thought you were supposed to get eight glasses a day?”
I shook my head, “It has nothing to do with the water.”
Rather, there was something else far more alarming.
It’s true, your body needs water almost more than anything else.
You can survive weeks without food, vitamins, or minerals. A few days without water and you’re toast.
BUT, what matters even more is where you get your water.
The wonderful water industry — (cue sarcasm) — wants you to believe that their product is GOOD for you. Look at all the wonderful images of the fresh outdoors on any bottle of water and you’d think their product is pure and clean.
But that couldn’t be farther from the truth. In fact, most bottled water comes from the same tap you and I get our water from. What’s worse…studies show that bottled water contains lead, mercury, bacteria, and other POISONS.
And now, recent research has found another problem.
A new study, published in the journal Frontiers in Chemistry, analyzed 259 bottles of water sold across the entire world and found that 93 percent of bottled water contained small plastic particles called microplastics.
Most of the plastic is not visible to your eye, but some actually are…
And these microplastics get into the bottle during manufacturing.
The research team found an average of 325 microplastic particles per liter of bottled water.
Nestle pure life water had the largest concentration, with one sample containing a staggering 10,000 microplastic particles per liter of water.
A 2018 study found microplastics in stool samples of nearly half of the people they tested!
So if you want clean water, skip the plastic bottle and use filtered water whenever you can.
The only way to ensure you have clean water is to filter it at your home. Even if your municipal water authority swears your water is safe, they’re just testing it at the plant.
It still has miles to travel in pipes before it gets to your house. And Who knows what your water runs into along the way?
Ultimately, you can’t control what happens to the water before it gets to your house, but you can control what happens after.
If you want to make sure you have clean drinking water, make sure you invest in a good filter.
