Drinking Toxins? Good Health Begins With Filtered Water

By Dawn Kornels

Enhancing your health with filtered water and lots of it is the foundation of good health. A person may be able to survive a couple of months without food but only a few days without water. Hydrating the body is the primary step towards optimal health. Water is necessary for the digestion and absorption of food. It affects the body's metabolism by moving nutrients, hormones, antibodies and oxygen through the lymphatic system. Since it is calorie free, water is an excellent appetite suppressant and aids the body in metabolizing stored fat. Research has shown that for every 25 pounds overweight, one should drink an additional glass of water.

Water also flushes the body of toxins and other waste material. The SAD (Standard American Diet) is laden from toxins including meat grown with the aid of hormones, steroids and antibiotics, pesticides found on fruits and vegetables and the many chemical additives such as preservatives, artificial flavorings and colorings found in prepackaged and restaurant foods. The liver works hard processing and removing toxins before sending them to the kidneys. Without proper water intake, toxins can not be eliminated thoroughly and try to escape through the skin also being a contributing factor to skin conditions like acne, eczema, psoraisis, liver spots, body growths and warts. Offensive body odor also increases with body toxicity. Research has also shown that drinking at least 5 glasses of water daily reduces colon cancer by 45%.

Dehydration retains toxins which can cause stiffness, pain, adhesions, muscle spasms, and headaches. Much of the body's water is lost daily through the soles of the feet, breathing, perspiration and urine. The average man needs at least 12 cups daily and the average woman needs about 9 cups of water daily. Hot humid weather and extraneous work or exercise require more.

Finding a good source of water is hard these days and requires the use of filtration units. Research has shown that most tap and well waters in the U.S. are not safe because of heavy industrial and environmental pollution. The EPA has identified over 700 contaminants found on a regular basis in both city water supplies or wells and springs. The most common contaminants are abestos, cysts, lead, mercury, trialomethanes, turbidty, endocrine disrupters and volatile organic chemicals.

75% of all U.S. households have chlorinated water.The EPA states that chlorine follows after cigarette smoking in leading causes of cancer. Chlorine kills the good bacteria along with the bad bacteria. It also strips the hair and skin of necessary oils. Chlorine is one of the biggest irritants causing eczema today.

The EPA estimates that 40 million Americans are exposed to lead high above the maximum contaminant allowances. Radon is found in almost all water. 60% of all Americans drink fluoridated water. The underground water reservoirs which supply water for over 60% of the U.S. are contaminated by seepage from underground chemical storage tanks or toxic leaks from landfills.

Not only is drinking pure water important but also showering in pure water is equally important. The skins absorbs through osmosis whatever it comes in contact with be it petroleum based lotions, soaps, or chemical based perfumes. Also, showering in chlorinated or fluoridated water is as dangerous as drinking it. A 15 minute hot steamy shower in contaminated water is equivalent to drinking 8 glasses of contaminated water because of the vapors that are inhaled.

Drinking filtered water is one of the most important factors in good health.Water filter units are also very economical and save a lot of money as compared to buying bottled water. It is very easy to buy your own bottle to take filtered water made conveniently in your home to work with you or wherever you go. Investing in a water filter unit is one of the best investments you can make in your health and the health of your family.
