Water helps remove waste from the body and transports nutrients to where they are needed, so drink 8 to 10 glasses a da. The bowel disposes of toxins from the digestive system and the liver helps clear the way for other organs to function properly and help rid of those unwanted toxins. Your body is actually able to detoxify itself in a natural manner with the use of its lungs, liver and kidneys. When our bodies are bombarded with unfamiliar toxins, are producing too many toxins, or are not eliminating toxins effectively, the toxins build up and can cause health problems.

So when you drink distilled water, it may pull small amounts of minerals from your body, including from your teeth. Because you already get most of the minerals you need from your diet, drinking distilled water shouldn’t make you deficient. Still, if you’re going to drink distilled water, it’s a good idea to make sure you get your recommended daily servings of fruits and vegetables. Berkeley, California: Celestial Arts.

THE DRINKING WATER BOOK takes a level-headed look at the serious issues surrounding America's drinking water supply. Colin Ingram pulls the reader into his book by offering "Ten Quick Tips" to "wet" your appetite for the valuable detailed information that follows. Ingram, who has years of experience as a scientific writer, articulates with clarity in this comprehensive guide to the importance of pure drinking water for maintaining optimum health. The chapter on water pollutants and the risk to health was startling.

ul materials are eliminated from your body normally and naturally through the functioning of your liver, and kidneys, and excreted by means of all the vapours, gases, liquids, and solids that you produce. This includes your urine, skin/sweat, lungs/respiration, saliva, tears, semen, mucus, & feces. Clearly water is the medium for most of the elimination routes in the list above, while fat-soluble compounds (such as solvents and other volatile organic compounds, or VOCs) can also be eliminated through respiration and feces

I liked this book because he got the point rather quickly and related it to me and my life fairly well. It answers a lot of questions and in a way that made me basically trust his opinions. There are literally countless books and "authorities" out there that claim to tell you what water is healthy and what isn't. But if you dig deeper you will find that in most cases, there is some ulterior motive hidden in there - usually to sell you something beyond the information you thought you were getting. This author, from everything I could tell, is the real deal. He is actually telling you about what is known up to this point without a specific agenda.

So why not 5 stars? Because although he is thorough, there are still other types of water out there he doesn't cover. For example, I have a neighbor that drinks from a machine that alkalinizes his water. He believes high pH water is good for you and he has a machine that does it for him. Well I thought I knew it all after reading this book and then realized there are more ways to treat water out there than the author goes into. So this is not the last book you'll need to read, only a very good start.

Also, there is a glaring omission about Bisphenol A (BPA). This is a relatively new concern with water and foods that come into contact with plastics. Apparently, some plastics emit this chemical but the author does not really talk about how this impacts many of the water filtration methods out there. For example, he says reverse osmosis removes `such and such' chemicals but doesn't specifically mention BPA. And what's more, he doesn't address the fact that the very filters that are removing the toxins are made of plastic themselves and may potentially re-contaminate water with a chemical it never had to begin with! So I thought this made the book less thorough and in-depth than needed to be truly complete.

IN CONCLUSION: If you're looking for a great way to learn about the basics of water and the different methods of filtering it, then this is a great book to start with.
This book was one of the best books I have read recently. I have recommended it to all my friends. Mr. Ingram really did his work well! It is well researched, well thought out and formatted, well edited!! and very informative! He divides the books into sections on various types of water care: He even rates different means of treating water and gives his recommendations with pricing! I highly recommend it as it is very useful whether you are a homeowner, a camper, a hiker, an outdoors person or anyone who drinks water!
Has more info on water and ALL the filters they have. What you need after you figure your water type . Also tons of info on filters and at the end his recommendations for best ones in the class like pitcher filter, faucet, whole house and more. Don't think you could get more info than he has. Easy to read and lots of information.
This is a good book if you are at all wanting to know more about water filtration. The author also includes different products and his rating of each of these. I was a bit surprised to not see a company called multipure mentioned that has been in the water filtration business for many years though. That is the filter I have used for the past 20 years and they have independent lab tests to prove they do a great job of filtering. I thought it would be useful to look at various types of filtering and see what is new. I would suggest this book to anyone who is concerned about drinking clean water and wants to understand how filtering works.
This book does it all. It explains the potential pollutants that can be in your drinking water, evaluates some of the risks, gives you criteria to decide whether or not to get your water tested (with resources for reputable testers), evaluates several different methods of drinking water filtration, and even reviews and rates available systems. I've been going round in circles trying to get some clear answers and finally found them in this book. The author has his preferences, but if an issue is controversial (e.g., fluoridation) he presents a balanced discussion and/or points the reader to other sources of information. Great resource. Thank you Colin Ingram!
