What you should know about your drinking Water

5 Comments

Ever have those arguments with your friends or coworkers?  What is best… tap water or bottled water?  New studies say that water should be tested periodically.

Tap water is generally safe unless it is contaminated.  The pouring of toxic waste material in rivers and lakes is something that still needs more research. Plus some water pipes are old and a build-up of minerals in old pipes can cause bacteria growth.

High calcium levels in tap water are not harmful but instead add calcium to the diet. Heavey metals can be filtered out with carbon filters attached to faucets. Some of the new water systems like Nikken’s waterfall balances out these minerals.

Dehydration causes a lot of health issues, ranging from chronic digestive problems to Alzheimers’s disease.  Dr. Batmanghelidj says that the body’s cells lose water, and even brain function can deteriorate.  Increasing water intake can help prevent health problems from developing.  www.watercure.com gives more insight into the importance of drinking water.

Bottled water contains ozone, or “super oxygen, “that kills bacteria.  Water softeners are added to improve taste. An old fashioned way of getting rid of the taste of chlorine is to put water in a jug and leave it standing for a few hours.

Dear friends, I first discovered writing while at Univesity studying Psychology and working on a BA. Taking English and creative writing alongside inspired me to start writing short fiction, including poetry. In addition, I completed a creative writing honors diploma. I still love to write fiction, but I've been told that my strengths lie in writing Non-Fiction. With all my current writing experience someone suggested Freelance copy wrting. The blogging topics I will write about are Health and Wellness for Women and a Writing tips blog for creative and non-fiction​ writers. Hope you enjoy my blogs, I am trying to add new ones bi-monthly. I will be moving all of my posts to this blog very soon, hope you enjoy them. Some of my original posts may not be available until I restructure the site. Please post your comments. I read my comments every couple of days. I look forward to hearing your comments or suggestions.
