Would this affect filitered/Spring water also ? I never drink from the tap

A vast array of pharmaceuticals ? including antibiotics, anti-convulsants, mood stabilizers and sex hormones ? have been found in the drinking water supplies of at least 41 million Americans, an Associated Press investigation shows

Nice comeback....

Anybody who "only drinks bottled water" is a huge tool. Think of how much water one person needs in their life time, compare that to the costs of bottled water. Also the fact that some bottled water comes from tapped sources, and also bottled water has no real regulations. (Where as tap has tons.)

It'd be like my paying for 2 dollars a few times a day a box of purified air.

You essentially insulted everybody who drinks tape water by calling them dogs. Yet you get pissed when somebody calls you a complete tool for doing so. You'd think somebody in college would be a bit more socially aware. But this is the internet...that's way too much to hope for isn't it?

Anyways...I've stated my points about why I think anybody who "Just drinks bottled water" and insults those who don't is a tool. I have nothing more to say...and theres no need for us to take over this thread. If you really desperately feel the need to address my hair style or such, do so via PM.

Water seems like a fairly simple concept. You turn on the tap, put glass underneath, and drink. Sadly, it is not this simple for white people.

On the whole, they are unable to put a glass under a tap and just drink. In fact, this is such a strange concept that the city of New York had to launch a rather large PR campaign to show white people that it was possible to actually drink the water that comes out of the tap!

Up until this point, white people were consuming most of their water in the form of expensive bottles like Fiji, Aquafina and Dasanai. To this day, many white people continue to get their water in this fashion, and it is important to be aware about how your choice of water can say a lot about who you are.

Logically, you would assume that drinking the most expensive premium bottled water (Fiji and Voss) would be enough to show the world that you are too good for tap water. And a few years ago, you would have been right. But lately, advanced white people have been getting very upset about all of the waste that comes with drinking 15-20 bottles per week.

The leading edge of white people have started to use sturdier, refillable bottles. But do not assume this is from the tap. Most white people need to run their water through some sort of filter (Brita or PUR) before they put it into their bottle. This allows them to feel good about using a refillable bottle, but it also makes it more complicated, which they also like.

Previously, the gold standard was the Nalgene bottle, however recent studies have shown the plastic can leak toxins into the water. Currently, white people on the cutting edge are really into metal bottles of water with a twist cap. It is recommended that you buy one of these as soon as possible.

Having one will give you precious leverage over any white person who is drinking from a plastic bottle. ?Oh bottled water? really? I mean it?s cool, but I kind of thought you cared about the earth.? If you see someone drinking a Fiji water, you do have the opportunity to go in for the kill. ?Do you know that your bottle of water has a bigger carbon footprint than me? I think they were originally going to call it ?aboriginal blood? but that bottle was as close as they could get. You know, legally.?

Again, this should only be used in extreme situations.

Following your confrontation, the white person is likely to have a metal bottle just like yours. If this happens, there will be an implicit pact whereby they will do favors for you provided you do not tell everyone they got their bottle after you.

If tap water is so good how come all of this is found in the water coming out of my tap?

Barium, Manganese, Nitrate, Sulfate, Chloroform, Bromoform, Bromodichloromethane, Dibromochloromethane, Alpha particle activity, Radium-226, Gross beta particle activity.


I actually looked at my local water authority purity report and they do not even test for almost all of the pollutants found...because the government does not require it.



The City of Chicago scares me as well...here are a list of pollutants found in its water:
Ammonia, Arsenic, Barium, Nitrates & nitrites, Sulfate, Acetochlor, Dichloroacetic acid, Trichloroacetic acid, Monobromoacetic acid, Dibromoacetic acid, Total haloacetic acids, Chloroform, Bromoform, Bromodichloromethane, Dibromochloromethane, trihalomethane.


How many of you even know what is in your water supply?? I am willing to bet that the level of pollution even varies within an area served by the same company since old plumbing can leech things like lead and other metals into it which would not be detected when testing at the source.

Might as well give up drinking water all together. Bottled water contained in 'PET' plastic containers, which most are bottled in, contain estrogenic type chemicals which leach into the water. There goes ya sperm count! Have to take more testosterone boosting supps and estrogen blockers!

Edit:Quoted from the article

"Even users of bottled water and home filtration systems don't necessarily avoid exposure. Bottlers, some of which simply repackage tap water, do not typically treat or test for pharmaceuticals, according to the industry's main trade group. The same goes for the makers of home filtration systems."

Is distilled the best ?

the problem with drinking distilled water is that it doesnt have the vitamins and minerals that are in normal drinking water and


The Journal of General Internal Medicine[2] published a study on the mineral contents of different waters available in the US. The study concluded, "drinking water sources available to North Americans may contain high levels of Calcium, Magnesium, and Sodium and may provide clinically important portions of the recommended dietary intake of these minerals," and further encouraged individuals to "check the mineral content of their drinking water, whether tap or bottled, and choose water most appropriate for their needs." Since distilled water is devoid of minerals, supplemental mineral intake through diet is needed to maintain proper health.

Yeah thats what I heard too

v4lu3s
03-09-2008, 07:27 PM
the lack of crap in the water is not a problem with a balanced diet and who here does NOT take a multi vitamin?

That study cited also does not indicate what levels of those minerals are present in various locations, nor does it state the type of diet that they assume the person is eating. If you really think that parts per million of calcium is significant in your diet....well I can't say much.

The minerals in water are so scant that in Boston, MA for example, one would have to drink 676 8-ounce glasses of tap water to obtain the Recommended Daily Allowance ( RDA) of calcium. That person would have to drink 1,848 8-ounce glasses to get RDA of magnesium, 848 8-ounce glasses to get RDA of iron, and 168,960 8-ounce glasses to obtain the RDA of phosphorus. It seems insane to even think about drinking that much water. Most people can't even drink the recommended 8 glasses of water a day that is widely touted by health experts.

In addition the past two physicals i have had blood and urine tests done, both indicating perfect health and normal ranges of electrolytes and minerals in my blood.

I'm sure there are plenty of people around here who do not have a balanced diet. Also, the majority of multivitamins do not contain the trace minerals the body needs in minute amounts, and not everyone is going to get them through foods, even if they have a supposed balanced diet.

so which trace minerals are found in ALL tap water worldwide that are critical for human health?

here is some stuff for thought:


Estimations of daily mineral intakes from drinking water.

Gillies ME, Paulin HV.

Duplicate samples of all tap water drank over 24 h, including that used for beverage preparation, were collected from 109 adult subjects. There were more than ten-fold variations in daily water intakes. The mineral concentrations in the 24-h samples from households on the same public water supply showed considerable variation, the differences sometimes being greater than those found in water samples from different sources. These findings raise considerable doubt about the accuracy of accepted methods for the estimation of mineral intakes from drinking water. Although the mineral concentrations in water samples were generally very low some subjects received 10 per cent or more of their recommended dietary intake of Cu and Zn from this source.


[The health status and the indices of urinary system activity in children with long-term exposure to drinking water with an adverse mineral content]

[Article in Russian]

Lagutina LE, Shtannikov EV, Makarova OA.

A study was made of the effect of drinking highly mineralized water on the children's health status, particularly on the urinary system activity. As many as 357 children living in one of the poorly irrigated regions of the Saratov land along the Volga were examined. It has been established that drinking highly mineralized water is a high-intensity factor producing an untoward effect on the children's physical development, contributing to the rise of the incidence of acute (mainly respiratory) and chronic diseases (cholecystopathies, nephropathies, gastrointestinal diseases, nocturnal enuresis, dental caries). The long consumption of such drinking water has been discovered to have an unfavourable effect on the physicochemical and biochemical properties of the urine, excretion of the main crystal-forming substances and certain parameters of mebranolysis.

The tap water I drink does taste like crap compared to bottled stuff. I know a lot of people like to provide statistics of how many people weren't able to distinguish tap water from bottled in a study, but where I live, the tap water deffinately has a distinguishable taste. I'm sure it contains sulphur, lead, cobalt, etc., but in the end, trace amounts of this help keep the immune system up (in my opinion anyway. Please don't bitch about it if you have a different opinion).

As another poster already pointed out, livestock and crops are not grown with expensive bottled water, so you're likely to get these additives one way or another, whether you drink tap water directly or eat the food that uses it.

Distilled water takes out the minerals and other dissolved solids. Any type of volatile compounds or compounds that breakdown into volatile compounds during the distillation would come over. Unless you dropped the condesate through activated charcoal.

The most pure water would be found when ran through some resin (softner), charcoal filters, porcelain filter and then a RO system (a non detect on total dissolved solids).

The second part I agree on.

But all this leads me to believe that we take too many meds (if their "source" is correct).

Do I recommend drinking distilled? Absolutely.... the less impurities, the better.

Nobody that can afford to have clothes on their back, is relying on water for a source of minerals, and there is no way in hell that the normal consumption of distilled water aquires the ability to cause any significant decrements in endogenous mineral pools.

Agreed, and I should have stated... Distilled water = virtually ZERO impurities

Still though, we are only talking measurments of ppb and/or ppt, so thankfully any remaining by-products within the condensate will not be an issue when considering chronic consumption.




all this leads me to believe that we take too many meds (if their "source" is correct).

That statement is true.... REGUARDLESS of the validity of that source. :(

A vast array of pharmaceuticals ? including antibiotics, anti-convulsants, mood stabilizers and sex hormones ? have been found in the drinking water supplies of at least 41 million Americans, an Associated Press investigation shows

We're drinking the drugs in other people's piss.

Distilled water is for making home brewed beer, filtered tap water is the only way to go

So why isnt Distilled water sold in designer bottles like filtered and Spring ?

not sure, if anybody is a bit older, wasn't it pretty popular in the 70s and 80s to drink distilled waters and have home distillers? Then for some reason it became unpopular... I remember people talking about it in the mid 80s. I think they were just scared there weren't nutrients in it, and possibly the taste? Just fishing here.... I know they definitely drink distilled in third world countries though to be safe. I was on in an eco village in Italy and we were distilling the water there.

Might as well give up drinking water all together. Bottled water contained in 'PET' plastic containers, which most are bottled in, contain estrogenic type chemicals which leach into the water. There goes ya sperm count! Have to take more testosterone boosting supps and estrogen blockers!

WTF! :confused:
