River or Dam water

Most people don't know what they are drinking when they turn on their tap.

The water could be coming from their local river, dam or

What most people are not aware of is that the water coming from our river, dam or bore could in fact be creating the very health problems that we suffer from and are constantly trying to battle.

Scrutinising the contents of our river, dam or bore water can reveal a deadly cocktail of poisons and substances in minute traces that destroy healthy body cells or collect in the body and cause harm from long term consumption.

A constant supply of river, dam or bore water is now considered to slowly over a lifetime create disease and a shorter life. It is from the water containing inorganic minerals, rust particles, bacteria and viruses.

Rust particles and sediment often are collected by water passing through pipes over long and short distances. These small rust and sediment particles collect in the body if not removed causing arthritis and also harden the arteries giving poor circulation. River, dam or bore water is known to contain a lot of sediment.

The amount of rust and sediment particles in tap water may not be easily seen by the naked eye but can still be lurking in your drinking water. Simply get a TDS water test to see what dissolved solids such as minerals, dirt and rust your water contains.

Inorganic Minerals is a new term to many people. Most people think that our water is the supplier of important minerals. BIG MISTAKE!

All water that has run over, through or is stored in land will pick up inorganic minerals. Mineral spring water is a classic example of this. Inorganic minerals are poisonous to the human body.

Organic minerals come from plants that are supplied inorganic minerals from the water in the soil. Water in or on the land is nature's way of providing the essential minerals to plants not humans. Humans then obtain water and organic minerals by eating the fruit. The plant grows best when it is grown in soil rich in minerals - inorganic minerals.

An important supply of organic minerals, will ensure the proper function of all vitamin and enzyme processes because nothing will occur without these in the body. Our source of organic minerals is from the plants and proper eating habits will ensure the correct amount and type of minerals are going in to your body each day. Our body is best off not receiving any inorganic minerals at all because of the long term build up in our veins, arteries, joints and stomach lining.

Let hard water be for your plants and they will love you for it and you will love them for the way they grow. Carbon filters do not remove much minerals out of the water and is a poor substitute for the ultimate water treatment - distillation.

Water is considered hard when it contains more inorganic minerals than other waters considered soft because of low inorganic mineral content. These hard waters are the most deadliest over long periods of time.

Inorganic minerals combine with cholesterol in the body to clog up our arteries just like our pipes in our house clog up with mineral deposits. The result is poor circulation and low absorption of vital and essential nutrients.

All nutrients that the human body requires to function properly must be wetted by water first to be absorbed. If the water quality is hard then their is little absorption of the nutrients in the body directly into the body cells to perform the necessary functions.

Bacterial and viral contamination in river, dam or bore water cannot be guaranteed even with the use of chlorination. Many outbreaks in local water sources throughout Australia have given much scare to people and the safety of drinking water. Many buy and use filters thinking they are enough for their water purifying needs.

No filter is small enough to remove all bacteria or any viruses. They are large enough to catch some sediment, chlorine, some detergents and pesticides only to have the bacteria and viruses then attach themselves and breed. This wonderful environment for bacteria and viruses will contaminate the water as it passes through.

Today we have used up all the nutrients such as inorganic minerals from the soil so that we have unhealthy soil. Unhealthy soil gives us unhealthy produce. To overcome this we spray fertilisers to increase the soil's content and health. We also must spray pesticides to take care of the unhealthy plants. When the soil is unhealthy and the plants becomes unhealthy, the natural immune system of the plant's against pests cannot defend itself so we must use chemicals to do this job.

The use of pesticides everyday and in most farming districts has given us a contamination that is so widespread that we cannot avoid it anymore. Some pesticides that evaporate come back down with rain and also contaminate the land.

The nature of water is to go through the land down to the water table. When the water is contaminated with pesticides, it takes these contaminants and very soon the water table contains them.

The water table is often used for people's bore water. The sad fact is that when people test for the water's safety, they do not test for pesticides.

Chemicals are not always able to be detected with taste or smell. It is a warning to anyone drinking from rivers, dams, bores or other water catchments to have your water tested for everything. You need to know what it contains and make your own decisions based upon your own research as to whether the water is fit for human consumption.

Most old people are dehydrated and literally dry up due to insufficient water. Their hands and skin dries up looking parched, withered, dry and old. Skin is a very good indication of body hydration.

When your lips are cracked and dry your body might just be dehydrated from lack of drinking water or from drinking water which the body cannot absorb and utilise.

A constant supply of pure, clean water is what creates a healthy environment for the body to be able to live longer. Nearly all bodily processes require water to occur. Water is the environment which life exists within a human body.
