Why You Absolutely Must Personally Treat Your Own Water

Why do we need to worry about the water we are consuming each and every day?

When referring to a group of people or someone acting different, the phrase “it must be in the water” is often used as a response. While this phrase is always used comically, you need to know that many of your health problems may indeed be result of what is in the water you are consuming every day.

Why You Need to Personally Treat Your Own Water

Many people are unaware of the vast amount of chemicals lurking in nearly all public water supplies. If you are using tap water to cook your food, or drinking it straight from the faucet, then you are exposing yourself to these substances. One of the most commonly noted, controversial substances in the water supply is fluoride.

It was only a few years ago that if you labeled fluoride as a dangerous substance, you would be laughed at and scorned. For years, a select minority of individuals were the only ones raising the awareness of this health concern. Their cries have been and continue to be met with dissonance, despite the fact that the public’s opinion on fluoride has changed much in just a short time.

In fact, even the United States government has called for lower levels of water fluoridation following a study published in Environmental Health Perspectives, which found that increased fluoride consumption led to decreased IQ in children.

Check your city’s fluoride levels.

Fluoride is not the only thing in your water. Cocaine, various hormones birth control, pharmaceuticals, and other toxic pollutants are often found in the drinking water across the United States. 

Other pollutants typically found in the drinking water:
  • Lead, which can enter the water supply through corrosive pipes or improper water treatment
  • Pathogens that cause disease and are especially crippling to those with weakened immune systems
  • By-products of chlorine treatment such as trihalomethanes and haloacetic acids, which have been linked to cancer and reproductive problems
  • Arsenic, which may cause cancer, serious skin problems, birth defects and reproductive problems
  • Radon, a carcinogen linked to lung cancer
So what do you do about it? One of the best options to prevent against exposure to these chemicals is to purchase a high quality water filter, and one that filters fluoride. Two very good options for this would be the ULTRA Countertop, and ULTRA-uc Undercounter water filtration systems from PureEffect.

The Ultra Models are  ”all-in-one”, high performance water revitalization systems.  They raise water’s PH and negative ORP (antioxidant potential). In addition, natural minerals and electrolytes are supported while the systems filter out radiation, VOCs, drug residues, and heavy metals such as mercury, barium, lead, copper, aluminum, and others. It does all of this while not requiring electricity to operate.

The units also successfully filter out herbicides and pesticides, which is becoming a growing concern. New research has confirmed that Monsanto’s best-selling herbicide Roundup has been found to be contaminating the groundwater in areas it is being applied in. Specifically, the water is being polluted with a carcinogenic chemical it contains known as glyphosate. What does this mean? It means that toxic glyphosate is now polluting the world’s drinking water through the widespread contamination of aquifers, wells and springs. If you want to filter this toxic herbicide out, these units will do it for you.

You can check out these particular water filter systems here – ULTRA Countertop – and here – ULTRA-uc Undercounter.

I see a lot of naive people around who solicit a short-cut to the afterlife through the savior of their choice. Recently this expeditor is more oriented toward the black arts, and the naive Christians go along for the ride. This is NOT what Jesus had in mind.

Other methods of treating water are distillation and RO water. Other brands of filters are berkey and filters. This article is relatively narrow as if to sell a product. I don't have experience with the product in question so I cannot speak to its efficacy. However I do .2 micron filtering and distillation. Half and half. That I can speak to.

My main problem with filtration (which I have used for years) is the relaiance on high tek expensive consumer market items (the filter cartridges) amidst a socio-economic collapse. Not renewable once the filter is used up.

Also I have had both berkey black and flouride/arsenic 5 removal elements leak and fail. Especially troubeling was the flouride/arsenic 5 removal elements because they can leak aluminum oxide particles into the filtered water. I no longer use that product because of that companys unwillingness to remedy a potentially dangerous manufacturers defect without additional payment.

I think that every household needs to have layers and systems diverse, in order to meet the challanges of providing non-toxic clean potable water into the new paradigm we are all entering. One item type food stocks (ramen) wont do to feed you. One single weapon is not good for all dangerous situations. One hammer is not a toolbox. Bandaids are not sufficient in place of sutures, and a water filter is but one tool for a job that is important as life itself. One filter, one distiller, one RO setup one technology alone is not enough.

In Germany we don't have these problems, cause dirty tap water is not allowed and the supplies are supervised. Go and engage for an according change of laws in the US!

I have experience with the filtration systems mentioned and what I've found is they make the water too clean, almost type I h2o. water that clean will leach minerals out of bone as the water attempts to balance itself. I've done TDS, pH and metals testing on RO v. tap and my data shows RO filtering is more than sufficient for household use. PureEffect systems are better suited to semiconductor manufacturing.

How can an article like this leave out the obvious poison that is actually legislated: fluoride?

For years, I have been pushing RAIN WATER. Most folks jeer at me that collecting rain water is more poisonious than city water.Collecting rain water from tar roofs is a no-no.Did you know that funeral homes discharge embombing fluids/blood ect directly into the sewers?
I dare someone to test rain water and come out--that it is dangerous.Unless your next to a refinery--just maybe some carbine dust.
What does it take to have an inverted large cone and wait for ashort cycle rain wash and collect it in bottles :^(

To the last Anonymous comment: Apparently you didn't even READ the article. Paragraphs 3, 4 and 5 are specifically about fluoride. It might help to actually read the article first before commenting on it.

I use a one gallon water distiller (Megahome) with out-spout carbon filter packet to ensure clean safe water. I take a daily Mega Multi-Mineral supplements to replace any lost minerals from drinking distilled tap water. With the age of fallout from fukushima/daiichi and rampant farm chemical run-off, i take all precautions to reduce my exposure. Looking inside my distiller, cant understand why anyone would call lime an essential mineral. They put limestone in the water to balance the PH from putting in fluoridisc acid, which in its undiluted form, can eat through concrete.

Home distillation and rainwater collection are a fantasic option which I've been using for years with no ill effects.

The rumour of deadly mineral malnutrition is pushed by water treatment system companies. There are no deaths in history recorded due to "drinking distilled water".

Although rainwater might contain dissolved radioactive substnces, essentially soluble salts, properly distilled water will not be radioactive. There are no common radioactive isotopes of hydrogen and oxygen.

Stills and rainwater collectors are very low-tech. What happens during a crisis when that Ultra company can't supply spares any longer?? Are you just supposed to dehydrate?

Buy a still, from any reputable dealer!

Anyone who claims to remove 100% of added fluoride without distillation or serious chemical processing is lying.

So, how much fluoride (there's commonly 1mg per litre of tapwater) is removed by the ultra, eh?

I distill my water and then I put that water through a charcoal filter.
I do not eat processed food and will not eat anything out of a can.
I drink only raw milk directly from the cow.
Why don't people realize that these food companies can not be trusted.

Where are you getting the 'raw milk'? I just bought five female and one male goats. The male is just about 3 months. So I will have to wait about 9 months before I can enjoy God's intended milk and cheese products.

We got a water filter kit from It was only about $70 and will filter 1 Million gallons. All you need is a food grade 5 gallon bucket and your good to go. It takes about 5 minutes to set it up. Filter all your rain water or any other type of water you can find in a SHTF situation.

Berkey's a no-no if you want clean water. They do not filter fluoride. When you read their labels it is quite plain thaat they do not. They don't however promote that notion. Caveat emptor.
