How Safe Is Your Drinking Water?

Water is the basis of all life and that includes your body. Your muscles that move your body are 75% water; your blood that transport nutrients is 82% water; your lungs that provide your oxygen are 90% water; your brain that is the control center of your body is 76% water; even your bones are 25% water.

Our health is truly dependent on the quality and quantity of the water we drink according to The Water Cure - The Miracles of Water to Cure Disease

Remember 64 ounces is key for daily water intake if you are sedentary. Bump it up to half of your body weight in water ounces if you are active or drinking caffeinated beverages and/or alcohol.

How Safe Is Your Drinking Water?
If you live in the most populated cities - like Boston, Dallas, New York, and Seattle - they consistently receive top ratings for high-quality drinking water. Check where your city ranks at

A good rating means your water has very low levels of bacteria, fertilizers, pesticides, medicines, industrial waste, heavy metals like manganese, and by-products from home cleansers, according to ongoing tests by local authorities.  Contaminants are frequently found at harmless levels.

Sometimes and in some locations, however, there are some problems with drinking water. If you live in an area where the water doesn't rate well - or if you are concerned that there's lead in it (which can happen in an older home with lead pipes) - use a filter. Philip Tierno, PhD, an immunologist and microbiologist at New York University, says a filter can eliminate lead and other pollutants and improve taste by cutting back on chlorine, which utilities use to treat water.

Did you know the dollar amount Americans spend on bottled water every year is $16 billion dollars? If your water taste funky, it is a good idea to start filtering your own water instead of buying bottled water all the time.  Here are some filters you can try at home or on the go....

  • The Pur 3 Stage Horizontal Faucet Water Filter ($39.99)
  • The WaterGeeks Filtered Stainless Steel Bottle ($24)
Another important thing to consider is the alkalinity of your water. Drinking water is key to good health—so why not drink the best water possible?
