As the saying goes - water, water everywhere but not a drop to drink.
Drinking quality water is vital to our overall health and wellbeing. Our body comprises approximately 70% water and we need to keep up this volume daily to support all of our bodily functions. If we don't drink sufficient water to hydrate ourselves, the body will seek it from our internal organs. When this happens we are compromising the health of our entire body. It's no wonder that so many people become sick with degenerative diseases and illness.
I'm not talking here about drinking tap water, or consuming convenience water from plastic bottles. Both sources are potentially hazardous. Depending upon where you live, the amount of toxic chemicals used in water treatment plants will vary. Poor quality plastic bottles, when warm, leach a harmful chemical known as bisphenol A. BPA is an industrial chemical used to make many plastic and resin products since the 1960s. BPA is found in polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins. Polycarbonate plastics are often used in containers that store food and beverages, such as water bottles.
Various cheap home filters can be used to minimise toxins from tap water, and BPA free drinking bottles are readily available for around £10. However, are they the answer? Well, it depends upon how high you value your health and wellbeing, and of course, what level of budget you have.
