Eye Opener: Is bottled water actually killing you? Yes! (general)

What conventional bottling is doing to your water
TAP water with a filter is almost always better for your health than bottled water.

Is Your Water Too Acidic? Here Are The Most Damaging Brands
Posted On February 12, 2017 By Liivi Hess

Both the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Environmental Working Group (EWG) have determined through lab testing that bottled water is inferior to tap water. That may come as a surprise to you, as the marketing used by most big-name water companies suggests that the water you get from bottles is far better for both your safety and health than the stuff that comes out of your tap. But while those bottles may guarantee a certain level of safety from certain water-borne pathogens (which you’re highly unlikely to get from tap water anyway), they completely degrade the quality of that water in the process.

The majority of bottled water companies use extreme filtration methods to ensure standardization of their products. These methods include ion-exchange, reverse osmosis, distillation and deionization. Some companies may use a combination of these methods, or all of them, to cover their corporate backsides and avoid consumer liability.

The result of extreme filtration is “dead water”

The extreme filtration process of bottled water leads to “dead water.”
No matter where you water originally comes from, be it a deep-water well, spring, river, lake or municipal water supply, the end product is always the same. It’s water that has been completely denatured and molecularly changed from its origin. “Dead water” is void of all the minerals that are typically found in natural water. It is so-called for two reasons.

First, this water has no life force. It has literally been sucked of all the health-supporting minerals and nutrients that our planet’s organisms (including humans) have grown to depend on. Second, organisms that drink only this extreme-filtered water would eventually die, as it can contribute to the death of tissues and cells in the body.

The result is a water that can actually harm — not heal — your health. Drinking demineralized bottled water actually contributes to nutrient loss in the body, as the dead-water acts to absorb minerals from your bones, joints and muscles. Kind of like a vacuum — the water sucks in the minerals it lost during the process of filtration in order to return to its natural state.

Bottled water may have harmful contents

There are plenty of other reasons why most bottled water is best avoided. How about the fact that around a quarter of all bottled water is simply glorified tap water, with a massive markup in price? Companies like Aquafina and Dasani simply take the tap water, treat it with ultraviolet light to kill any bugs that probably aren’t there anyway, bottle it and make a vast profit.

Not only that, many studies show that bottled water can contain phthalates, mold, microbes, benzene and even damaging heavy metals like arsenic. This health-harming effect is most readily seen in babies who are given bottled water. Research indicates that the lack of sodium and other minerals in this water can lead to hyponatremic seizures.

Pesticides and Pot: What's California Smoking?

Pesticides and Pot: What's California Smoking?

An NBC4 I-Team investigation found evidence suggesting that pesticides could be present in a lot of marijuana legally sold in California

By Joel Grover and Matthew Glasser

When Todd Gullion of Orange County was suffering with back pain last year, he decided to try medical marijuana, thinking it was a safer alternative than prescription drugs. But Gullion says after using the pot, he ended up in the emergency room with serious neurological symptoms.
"My hands go numb, my arms go numb, my feet go numb," Gullion told NBC4. "I feel like I was poisoned."

Gullion was worried that the pot had poisoned him. So he had the product tested at a nationally-known lab. The lab found high levels of toxic pesticides in it--chemicals that scientists say could cause serious health problems.

An NBC4 I-Team investigation found evidence suggesting that pesticides could be present in a lot of the marijuana legally sold in California. And, some scientists are especially concerned about those pesticides being inhaled when people smoke or vape marijuana.
