How to include a WATER PURITY PRACTICE in your Pathology Prevention plans. 

   We all love a tall glass of crystal clear, pure ice cold water; the condensation still forming on the sides of the clean glass. But let’s be honest, there is no such thing as rainbow colored unicorns, free lunch, or pure water. The very concept of ‘pure’ water is misleading. Pure water does not exist in nature. Water is the universal solvent. Even as it falls to the earth as rain, it picks up particles and minerals from the air, and as soon as it hits the ground it captures minerals from the soil and rock upon which it lands. It makes its way into streams and rivers carrying soil from mountains to the sea. Water picks up contaminates such as airborne mercury while it’s falling as rain.

   Consumers can achieve healthy water by identifying the unhealthy contaminates in their water and then taking action to remove them. Healthy water is achievable, whereas ‘pure’ water is not. Healthy water has an optimal pH of 7.2 to 7.6. Harmful contaminates such as chlorine, chloramines, disinfectant by-products such as the trihalomethanes, and any harmful chemical or metals whether man made or naturally occurring can be identified and removed with appropriate treatment.
