Not long after I made the decision to install a reverse osmosis system in my home it came to my attention that not everyone feels that drinking reverse osmosis water is safe for long period of time consumption.
Whenever learning of this got my adrenaline pumping and forced me to dig deep into the claims to define the truth for myself, being a man of pride and sincerity.
The primary argument behind theory is being depending on one study released by the World Health Organization. While leading to all sorts of negative health effects which we won’t discuss here, the claims are that by drinking water which was demineralised you’ll deplete your body of minerals similar to calcium and magnesium.
Do you know an answer to a following question. How Could RO Water Possibly be Unhealthy? >
It’s not quiet clear when this report was published, however it does state near first pace that at least a portion of the research was conducted by the former USSR, and there’s nothing in the report to suggest most of the research was conducted within the last 20 years.
Personally I just do not see how it could make any logical sense. WHO was intended well. The idea that we need to have calcium and magnesium in our water to be sure our bodies are properly nourished seems to me to be a far stretch, at least in populations where proper nutrition is plentiful. When you look at the food you eat you’ll notice that in a well rounded diet you get a lot of these nutrients without water even being in the equation.
Not to mention there’re scores and scores of men and women of great intelligence, most of them doctors, who testify that purified water, water free from all minerals and contaminants, is top-notch thing you can put in your body from a hydration standpoint. You can read 75 such testimonies here. It still makes the case that RO water could not possibly do any harm due to lack of minerals, most of the individuals are referring to distilled water, that is even more pure than reverse osmosis water.
Even the WQA, that is the most ‘wellknown’ and respected authorities on water safety and certifications had this to say about the health effects of reverse osmosis water… Consumption of low TDS water, just like that which results from RO treatment, does not pose any health concerns for healthy populations.
In normal, healthy individuals, the body is able to maintain homeostasis, that is what controls the release and adsorption of minerals, regardless of the TDS levels in the ingested fluids.
Does the WHO Report Hold Water, is that the case? >
Therefore if that ain’t enough I should also point out that both Orange County and Beverly Hills, CA both use reverse osmosis to supply their public drinking water. For me answer is pretty ‘straight forward’, There’s a lot more on this subject that I’ll probably write about in various forms in other articles. APEC reverse osmosis water for as long it last, after that, I’ll probably buy one more.
