It’s time to sort out the myths, misconceptions, and blatantly made-up lies about distilled water and its relationship to the health and physiology of the human body. Distilled water is simply the most consistent pure water available anywhere and it is the only regulated water on the market.
Distilled water was the first water to be sold in supermarkets before the first bottled water vending machine, which was installed at Bill’s IGA Grocery store in Brooklyn, Michigan in 1976. In the late 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, only distilled water was sold in stores. And it can be found in the aisles of household cleaning products and laundry detergents, as it is mainly used for steam irons and car batteries. Why? Because the rest of the water, except rainwater and distilled water, contains other substances, including inorganic minerals, that would accumulate and plug the holes in the steam iron and accumulate on the lead plates of the battery, shortening the life useful battery.
Michigan was one of the first states to experience and recognize the serious consequences of groundwater contamination as a result of the random disposal of hazardous waste materials from the auto industry in urban river streams and vacant lots along rural roads. At the same time, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was discovering nationwide contamination of water tables from the indiscriminate dumping of toxic wastes, along with agricultural chemicals, nitrates, pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides, in addition to the leaching from landfills.
Now, three decades later, chemicals remain in the water along with additional ones entering our environment at a rate of approximately 1,000 new chemicals and toxins per year. Despite that fact, municipal water supplies are only required to test for the list of 127 priority contaminants in the Clean Water Act of 1972. They stopped testing and adding new chemicals to the list more than 30 years ago due to the astronomical amount of new chemicals produced annually. It is practically impossible to get them out of the water. Water companies do not have the funds or the capacity to deal with this growing dilemma.
For this reason alone, the bottled water industry has emerged and grown exponentially over the years. Forbes magazine reported that “… the bottled water industry is now growing faster than the economy.”
In a race for a slice of the water profit pie, there are hundreds of water-related companies that manufacture equipment, devices, and methods to clean and / or improve water. We are told that our city’s water is “perfectly safe and healthy to drink,” even though, like San Diego’s municipal water, it contains 24 of the 127 priority contaminants known to cause cancer in humans. It also contains trihalomethanes (THMs) at twice the legal limit (6 carcinogens + chlorine), as well as hydrofluorosilisic acid, used in rat poison and pesticides. Municipal water providers say that all of these carcinogens are at “safe levels” and meet EPA standards. Yeah right. Give me a glass of water with over two dozen carcinogens (which they actually test for), but make sure they’re all at “safe” levels and I’ll feel safe and healthy.
So now we can buy spring water, glacier, mineral, sparkling, flavored, vitaminized, filtered, deionized, reverse osmosis, alkaline water, balanced water, vortex water, zero water and far from the last or least distilled water, just to name a few!
If your goal is to get into the water business and make the most money, I recommend running your municipal water through a cheap carbon filter, bottling it, and affixing a label that says “Spring Water” … that is, si ‘are unethical, as are many water companies. But guess what, it’s not against the law to do that in most states. The only water that is regulated is distilled water; If you label it distilled, it must be purified through the distillation process.
If you buy your water from a vending machine, I recommend that you check what the purification process consists of. If it is “filtration only”, only part of the chemicals have been removed from the water and all the inorganic minerals remain. The body cannot use inorganic minerals; Only organic ionic minerals are healthy and can be used by the body. Inorganic minerals cannot be absorbed by cells and can contribute to plaque formation in the colon, kidney stones, and various other ailments.
Reverse osmosis is the most common water purification method that, when new, can remove more than 90 percent of carcinogens. However, the filters should be replaced after treating a certain number of gallons of water. If they are not replaced, the quality of the filtered water begins to rapidly degrade to the point where the water coming out of the vending machine can be worse than the municipal water that is filtered. When filters have reached their capacity to hold chemicals, they begin to release trapped materials with each flush as the volume of water and pressure force them to loosen.
The only water that you can rely on consistently is water that has been purified through the process of distillation. It consists of boiling the water, killing all bacteria, cysts, amoebas, and waterborne diseases, leaving all chemical and other contaminants in the boiling tank, collecting the steam, and cooling it to liquid distilled water. This water is then polished with a carbon filter to eliminate the possibility of volatile organic compounds that may have turned into a gaseous form and passed through the steam. The result is pure, clean and healthy H2O, plus nothing.
Distilled water is so pure that it is a natural solvent (starved, void of any other substance or compound). As a consequence, distilled water will easily dissolve inorganic mineral plaque buildup in the colon, kidneys (stones), gallbladder (stones), and other parts of the body and remove them.
Our bodies are made up of more than 70% water that needs to be replaced daily by loss through perspiration, evaporation through respiration, elimination of waste through the colon and bladder. Water is necessary to create blood, lymph, digestive juices, lubricants, body fluids, etc. Depending on the purity of the water we consume, our body needs to remove all worthless carcinogens, toxins, chemicals, and inorganic minerals (dirt) before it can be used. The cleaner the water is to start with, the faster it can be used for hydration and other bodily functions. According to Andrew Weil, MD, (“America’s Doctor” and one of Time magazine’s “100 Most Influential People”), distilled water is not only the purest, cleanest, and healthiest water, it’s the water you drink with regularity.
Dr. Weil also said that the latest “alkaline water” craze is a scam. He calls it “fake, save your money.” It claims that the $ 2,000 to $ 6,000 machines sold around the world produce alkaline water with a pH of 8+. This does not change the pH of the body or the blood in any way, because the moment alkaline water reaches the stomach, it is instantly neutralized by stomach acid before it leaves the stomach.
A well-known doctor on the Internet states that “premature death comes from drinking distilled water.” He and several other “professionals” who have cited him have made this myth go viral on the Internet. When you Google “Premature death comes from drinking distilled water,” there are close to 1.5 million results. Most of these fake quotes posted come from people marketing water filters or alkaline water machines. To affirm that alkaline or filtered water is the best, they feel the need to vilify or belittle the best, purest and healthiest water to drink: distilled. Not only is it the best drinking water available, it’s the cheapest in any supermarket in America.
Myths about distilled water
The most popular myth about distilled water is that all the important minerals that the body needs have been removed. First, most of the minerals found dissolved in water along with chemicals, carcinogens and toxins are inorganic in nature, not ionic or chelated * and can be absorbed and used by our bodies. Instead, they cause plaque on the wall of the colon. A staggering statistic is that 33% or one in three people over the age of 55 will get colon cancer. Dr. Charles Mayo, founder of the prestigious Mayo Clinic, not only recommends drinking distilled water, but says, “Water hardness is the underlying cause of many, if not all, diseases resulting from poisons in the intestinal tract.” .
Another false claim is that “distilled water filters valuable minerals from the body.” First of all, distilled water does not filter minerals from the body. The people who make that claim are more than likely some uninformed “professional” with little or no knowledge of the physiology of the body. When you drink distilled water or any water, it is absorbed through the walls of the intestines (colon) and the body does not remove any of the water that is not beneficial. The water is then used to produce blood, lymph, digestive juices, lubricants, body fluids, etc. Distilled water is just pure H2O + nothing. It doesn’t run through our veins, the blood does! The blood delivers nutrients to the cells of the body and carries away waste materials. The blood is not going to transport a protein, a mineral or a vitamin to a cell and then eliminate it. Simply put, distilled water does not filter minerals from the body. For those of you who believe that, I suggest you take an adult high school summer course on science and chemistry.
Since the establishment of Distillation Station in 1976, the sale of distilled water, no one has been able to prove that premature death comes from drinking distilled water, or that distilled water leaches minerals from your body. To date, no one has claimed the $ 10,000 offer by submitting a blind study or published article that somehow shows that pure, clean distilled water can cause premature death or leach minerals from the body. The offer is still open.
I have personally been drinking a gallon of distilled water per day for over 40 years. I fast all food for a minimum of 21 days a year. Over the years, I have done three 40-day fasts with just distilled water. A year ago I fasted for 60 days: 40 days, then a 6-day break eating only vegetables, and then I continued another 20 days (for a total of 60 out of 66 days). There is no “premature death” here, just perfect health and longevity.
I suppose an experienced man is not at the mercy of a man with an argument. Change your water and change your health. Drink distilled water purified in the way of nature: evaporation and condensation.
