With tap water health being questioned very much now a days, Reverse osmosis systems have definitely become more popular in recent years. Is this really true, they are marketed as stateoftheart filters. And now here is the question. Do reverse osmosis systems really produce water that people must drink on a daily basis? What was once only used in printing and photo processing methods is now being used in the residential sector. From my point of view, the answer is obvious, the answer to this question is debatable. That is interesting. What they are ineffective at doing is getting rid of the THOUSANDS of synthetic chemicals we use in our society, for the simple fact that these molecules are much smaller than water molecules are. Notice, because they are smaller in molecular size than water is, What it does best is eliminate most inorganic chemicals and trace minerals. This kind of system exposes water under pressure to a ‘semi permeable’ membrane. Considering the above said. These contaminants won’t be filtered out, unless it’s used with a carbon filter.
Even with a carbon filter, there’s one major problems with reverse osmosis systems.
The human body is a water machine.
They take out the beneficial minerals that we need to function properly. However, a few negative things happens, without minerals in the water we drink. Generally, It’s even been said by the World Health Organization that drinking water must contain minimum levels of certain essential minerals. Of all, it’s been shown that the longer a person drinks demineralized water, the more likely they will develop mineral deficiencies.
Our body pulls minerals from our bones and teeth to produce bicarbonate to neutralize it, when we drink an acidic substance. Eventually, demineralized water produced by reverse osmosis systems contains more hydrogen, and is more acidic than alkaline.
It’s been proven that as bodily fluids become more acidic than alkaline, the production of free radicals increase, that causes an increase in cancer. Studies show that cancer cells can only grow in an acidic environment. It’s just an easy fact that around the planet, the people that live the longest, healthiest lives are the ones that live in areas with the most alkaline water with the highest mineral content. The system my family and I use attaches to both our kitchen faucet and our showers. While keeping the trace minerals in it, It filters out a good method assure tap water health is to use a ‘multi filtration’ system in your home, without a doubt.
