Just Because a Glass of Water Looks Clean and Clear Does Not Mean it is Safe

Most people judge water on how it looks. However, just because it looks ok does not mean it is good to drink.

“One of the biggest myths about water is that if it looks good, smells good and tastes ok, then it is safe to drink,” said Larry Wardell, who writes for H2olabs.com, a provider of water distiller systems that provide truly pure distilled water. “Unfortunately, that is not true. Many of the pollutants in our water cannot be seen, tasted or smelled, and frankly that makes them even more dangerous because we have no warning. We just assume that it is safe because it has been through a filtration plant. Filtration plant or not, your water is not safe to drink. Pretty much the only way to ensure you do have safe water is to use water distillers.”

Does anyone really know what they are drinking when they have a glass of water? The answer is usually no. Where are the contaminants coming from? “That is a good question and has a number of answers, but the largest single polluter is agricultural runoff that is a mixture of animal feces, fertilizers and pesticides,” explained Wardell.

Studies done on contaminated groundwater show millions of Americans get sick every year thanks to waterborne viruses, parasites and bacteria in our water today. Our planet once had clean, clear and safe water. People think drinking water comes from lakes and rivers. More than half of our water supply is from groundwater. Consider what that means and the bigger picture becomes clearer. If there are contaminants on the surface of the earth, they will end up in the groundwater when they soak into the soil. Once in the groundwater, they make their way to people’s taps.

“You can see what the problem is,” Wardell noted. “Not to say there isn’t some kind of filtration along the way, but most water filtration plants cannot keep up with the number of pollutants we actually have in the water, which is pushing 2,100.” In the end, it does not matter where the water comes from, just that it is polluted, and the only way to deal with it is to use water distillers or install water distillation systems at home and in the office. It is a guaranteed way to have clean, fresh, safe and good tasting water on hand when needed.
