Here's the dangers of drinking raw water

Anna Jefferson | 05 January, 2018, 19:40

"Last year's record season really got started in January and February with atmospheric rivers that are critical to California's water supply", said Gehrke.

"The Verge writes about the trend and disproves the claims, saying that while the water might look clean "'it can still be contaminated with bacteria, viruses, parasites, and other contaminants, ' the CDC warns".

According to a New York Times investigation published last week, unfiltered, untreated, unsterilized water is now being bottled and marketed in San Francisco for $36.99 per 2.5 gallons, and for $14.99 per refill, by a small Oregon-based start-up named Live Water.

A food-safety advocate said that almost everything that can make you sick could be found in untreated water.

Melbourne Water catchment and water quality manger Dr Kirsten Shelly said Melbourne had some of the world's best drinking water, which was treated and tested to ensure it was reliable and safe to drink. "It's fine (to drink untreated water) until some 10-year-old girl dies a awful death from cholera in Montecito, California". He added that anything we can think of could be in the untreated water and as far as fluoride concerns, scientists said that the chemical is adequately added in the water humans can only see the benefits.

Vincent Casey, a senior water sanitation and hygiene manager at clean water nonprofit WaterAid, explained that the levels of fluoride found in normal drinking water throughout the country are not risky. In lower quantity fluoride is advantageous to dental health.

Raw water refers to water that's been directly taken from the source with no other treatment or filtration being carried out.

The founder of Live Water, Mukhande Singh, told The Times he believes that public water has been poisoned.

'Extremely distasteful': Father of Slender Man attacker slams horror film
Sony Pictures media relations officials didn't reply to two emails left in the company's general inbox for reporter's inquiries. Weier's daughter, now 16, was sentenced to 25 years in a mental institution last month, the maximum punishment possible.

The Bureau of Reclamation is tasked with 18-month investigation into how to "maximize water deliveries", according to the Associated Press. "If it sits around too long, it'll turn green".

"Tap water? You're drinking toilet water with birth control drugs in them", he said. Adding, "Chloramine, and on top of that they're putting in fluoride". "Even traditional bottled spring water is treated with ultraviolet light or ozone gas and passed through filters to remove algae. Call me a conspiracy theorist, but it's a mind-control drug that has no benefit to our dental health", he said.

Of course, it must be noted that there isn't any scientific evidence that fluoride is linked to mind control.

If purchasing "raw water" is beyond your budget, there's always the option of finding your local spring and collecting it by the bottle.

However, health professionals have emphasised that there could be a real danger to drinking this water, as there are pathogens transmitted in water that could be introduced by bird droppings, cattle, and other environmental factors.

While the fad may have found a viable market, experts are simply left scratching their heads.

On the contrary, Dr Donald Hensrud, the director of the Healthy Living Program at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, explained there are risky risks. There is evidence all around the world because of treated water our environment is very healthy and efficient.
