Stop Drinking Bottled Water!

I picked up the graphic below from Anne Feeney’s newsletter.

I have to confess that I’m guilty of occasionally purchasing bottled water. There are times when it’s convenient to throw a few bottles in a cooler for road trips or when I know I’m going somewhere that has bad tasting water, but I do make a conscientious effort to make sure every empty bottle gets reused or winds up in a recyclable bin. I also realize, as a performing artist, that many venues are now expected to supply their performers with bottled water. It’s a courtesy and a convenience, and it is appreciated!  That being said, I think the sentiments expressed here are valid, disconcerting and important! Check it out:

  1. Paul Eilers Says:

    I agree that bottled water consumption should be limited. Often, the water is no better than tap water and consumers are none the wiser. Also, the chemicals from plastic bottles can leach into the water and be carcinogenic.

    The absolute best alternative is to purchase a reverse osmosis filter system and bottle your own water. Glass or a stainless steel thermos are two good ways to bottle your filtered water.

    Regarding tap water, something to keep in mind is many cities add fluoride to the drinking water. Dr. Russell Blaylock and many other health experts are adamant that we should do everything we can to avoid fluoride, as research has shown that it can cause early onset of brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s and make them progress more rapidly.

    “One study shows that adding fluoride to water in the presence of even small amounts of aluminum, caused severe destruction of brain cells in the part of the brain controlling learning and memory,” Dr. Russell Blaylock argues.

    A reverse osmosis water system filters can be expensive, costing as much as $500 or more. But in the end, this investment in your health is well worth the cost.
