Water makes up around two thirds of our body and is vital to your good health, so it should be a no-brainer that the water that we drink should be of good quality. It is not good enough to merely drink water on a daily basis, but you also need to ensure that the water that you drink is not contaminated.
Various studies have revealed that the water that is piped into our homes may be up to standard but this does not necessarily mean that it is the best Drinking water. Tap water in the UK has been found to contain toxins such as chlorine-by-products, fluoride (a carcinogen), and both prescription and recreational drugs. When we ingest medication, only some of it is absorbed into the body; the rest is flushed down the toilet – pharmaceutical residues are not removed by water treatment plants.
Some of the prescription and over-the-counter drug vestiges that have been found in tap water include antidepressants, antibiotics, pain medications, sex hormones, and sleeping pills. Recreational drugs that have been discovered include cocaine. According to various scientists, even the minute concentration of these drugs in the water could harm us over time.
Drinking bottled water is not really the best option as it can become very expensive and research has revealed that various brands contain even more harmful contaminants, and the bottles end up in landfills, thereby contributing to global warming.
The safest way to ensure that your drinking water is the best quality drinking water is to invest in a water cooler.
