Wasteful Bottled Water..

No Bottled Water The environmental cost of the massive consumption of bottled water has led some U.S. and Canadian local governments to consider a ban its sale. While this seems an extreme response, the scientific concerns are well-founded, and the facts may surprise you. Fact #1. Bottles used to package water take over 1,000 years to bio-degrade and if incinerated, they produce toxic fumes. It is estimated that over 80% of all single-use water bottles used in the U.S. simply [...]

Are You Drinking Enough Water?

Water is the single most important beverage that there is.  Plain old water.  Yet, studies have shown that many of us aren’t drinking the amount of water that our bodies need to stay healthy and strong.  Lack of hydration can cause headaches, muscle cramps and even fatigue.  Being well hydrated can help with clearer skin, a more effective metabolism, and even can help you to eat less food – a great bonus if you are actively trying to lose [...]

Bottled water can zap zinc levels…

Choosing spring water over purified water could help prevent a dangerous deficiency.  According to Lawrence D. Wilson, M.D., author of Nutritional Balancing and Hair Mineral Analysis, the reverse osmosis-filtering process (which is used for bottled water that are labeled "purified") doesn't just remove harmful pollutants from the water, it removes zinc-an essential nutrient for the body.  Worse yet, reverse osmosis-filtered water actually "attaches" to the zinc that's already in the body and flushes it out.  Luckily, getting your eight [...]

Information on arsenic

When it comes to contaminant removal concerns in the U.S., arsenic is one of the first to come to mind. Prolonged exposure to this chemical element, oftentimes found in groundwater sources, can lead to cancer, so removing it from drinking water is a human health priority. A recent study found that treating arsenic in drinking water not only prevented health effects, it also helped reduce the effects of past exposure. The study, reported in Environmental Health News, was conducted in Bangladesh, which faces widespread arsenic contamination [...]

The Filtration Process

The filtration process: This filter media blocks passage of contaminants through physical obstruction The filtration process involves some type of filter media, over which water flows. This filter media blocks passage of contaminants through physical obstruction, chemical adsorption, or a combination of both processes. Material construction of the filter media varies widely, but the most effective... medias are made from carbon or a combination of carbon with other elements. Modern filtration technology allows water filters to remove more and more [...]

Some more information on Arsenic

Facts about arsenic What is arsenic and where did it come from, and why are we just hearing about it now? Arsenic is a naturally occurring mineral in groundwater. It is found in water all over the world as both As3 (arsenite) and As5 (arsenate). In Bangladesh it is truly a health crisis.1 In South America, 7,000-year-old Andean mummies showed the effects of arsenicosis (arsenic poisoning) from prolonged exposure to contaminated drinking water. Europe was the first to lower their arsenic [...]

Pollutants in our Water Supply…

According to research articles and news, most tap and well water in the U.S. now are not safe for drinking due to heavy industrial and environmental pollution. We have reached to a point that, all sources of our drinking water, including municipal water systems, wells, lakes, rivers, and even glaciers, contain some level of contamination. Contaminants range from naturally-occurring minerals to man-made chemicals and by-products. While many contaminants are found at levels not enough not to cause immediate discomforts [...]

Arsenic found in California’s groundwater…

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has fined a natural gas-fired power plant $13,500 for improper management of hazardous waste. According to EPA, the plant, located in Yuba City, Calif., generated arsenic from the treatment of wastewater and failed to minimize releases of hazardous waste to the environment. Arsenic occurs naturally in the local groundwater, which the plant uses in its daily operations. The agency discovered that the facility produced arsenic from the treatment of wastewater, but it “allowed federally [...]

Study shows U.S. is third in annual water consumption…

Study shows U.S. is third in annual water consumption VISTA, Calif. — A study conducted by two engineers at the University of Twente in the Netherlands calculated how much water is used around the world and what countries have the highest consumption rates, according to a press release. According to their research, more than 9 billion cubic meters of water are used around the world each year, noted the release. The countries with the greatest annual consumption of water are: • China, 1,207 [...]
