WATER, WATER, EVERYWHERE, BUT NONE TO DRINK
Water is the most essential substance for human survival. It mediates biochemical processes and metabolic reactions in plants, animals, and humans. Your body is composed of approximately 60% water, and nearly all your vital organs depend upon water in order to function. You can survive only 3 or 4 days without drinking water. Even though 75 percent of the Earth’s surface is water, there exists few places in the U.S. where it is safe for human consumption.
Over the last several decades the quality of drinking water in America has deteriorated to the point where water from the tap and other contaminated sources is now a hazard to sustaining good health. There are more than 50,000 known carcinogens (cancer-causing agents) in most municipal drinking water supplies. Added chemicals from water treatment facilities include Chlorine and Fluoride (neurotoxins), and thousands of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) too numerous to list. Viruses, harmful bacteria, toxic elements and chemical compounds, and leached pharmaceutical drugs are abundantly present in tap water. Ground water aquifers – underground pools of water saturating porous sedimentary rock – are contaminated from industrial, agricultural and residential waste. A process of natural gas extraction known as “fracking” uses toxic chemicals, and cross-contaminates aquifers from point sources such as industrial and residential pollution dumped into lakes and streams. Even deep wells are not safe from this horizontal drilling method which has the potential for polluting all the ground water in America. It is banned in Europe, but in the U.S. powerful oil interests continue to drill without legal sanction.
Given these dangers to your health, the only feasible option available for those who care about their health and the health of their family is to purify water by Steam Distillation. This is the most effective method for decontaminating water, and is the same process as the hydrologic cycle of water evaporation and condensation to produce purified rain (when the atmosphere was unpolluted) yielding a product that is 100% free of all contaminates. (Filtration does not remove all impurities, and may concentrate contaminates.) Electric, high efficiency stainless steel distillers can be purchased on the Internet from Chinese manufacturers for a fraction of the cost of ineffective poor quality plastic counter top distillers sold in America.
