Tap water or bottled water? Well, so many different opinions, so much information. Here is my own personal opinion, though.
What do I prefer? I prefer filtered water. And I prefer the filter in my own home. With so many contradictory opinions out there about bottled vs. tap, there is one thing I know for sure. I, quite frankly, am a little nervous about drinking tap water. My answer to the dilemma is a filter!
Water filters offer the last line of defense between the body and the over 2,100 known toxins that may be present in drinking water. Some people think that water filters greatly reduce the risk of rectal cancer, colon cancer, and bladder cancer by removing chlorine and chlorine byproducts from drinking water. I know that reverse osmosis and distillation filters can remove bacteria, viruses, arsenic, chloride, fluoride, nitrate, sulfate, lead, mercury, and some organic materials.
Besides a small amount of coffee, a decent amount of green tea, our own blend of Lion Tea, and some chamomile tea, I consume mass quantities of water. But, quite frankly, the question of tap vs. bottled, I just am not so sure what the answer is. Since people have asked my opinion on water, I have decided to blog about it and let you know that I myself am a bit confused, therefore, my answer is filtered water. And, I must say, I do have quite a bit of trepidation when it comes to tap water.
If any of you out there have an opinion on bottled water vs. tap water, I would love to hear about it. In the meantime, my suggestion is filter your water and let’s do a bit more investigating.
However, here is one thing for sure – make damn sure you drink lots and lots of water to maintain a healthy body.
