How 8 Glasses A Day Keep Fat Away

Water suppresses the appetite naturally and helps the body metabolize stored fat. Studies have shown that a decrease in water intake will cause fat deposits to increase, while an increase in water intake can actually reduce fat deposits because the kidneys cannot function properly without enough water. When they don't work to capacity, some of their load is cast on to the liver.

Carbon

carbonCarbon has proven to be an effective material in the reduction of health contaminants in drinking water.  Even Egyptians discovered that storing their water in charcoal made it taste better.  Not all carbon technologies, however, are created equal.  Some water filters use a granular activated carbon which is effective for odor and taste, yet microscopic health contaminants can easily slip through past the grains.

Carbons are selected with high activity. Years of research, development, and manufacturing experience have helped Multipure develop specifications for carbon and other media that give its Solid Carbon Block filters distinct performance advantages over alternative treatments.

Bottled Water: Buyer Beware

New research from LiveScience shows that Americans are drinking more bottled water than milk, coffee or even beer these days.

At least 25 percent of bottled water starts out as tap water, according to the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC), which cautions that bottled water "is not necessarily cleaner or safer than most tap water." The NRDC credits successful marketing for encouraging consumers to sometimes spend 10,000 times more for bottled water than their tap water costs. Coca-Cola and PepsiCo, which control more than 50 percent of the soda and water market according to the firm Research and Markets, mainly sell processed tap water under brands such as Dasani and Aquafina.

Reverse Osmosis

Reverse Osmosis is a natural process. When two liquids with different concentrations of a solute are separated by a semipermeable membrane, the fluid has a tendency to move from low to high solute concentrations for chemical potential equilibrium.
Formally, reverse osmosis is the process of forcing a solvent from a region of high solute concentration through a semipermeable membrane to a region of low solute concentration by applying a pressure in excess of the osmotic pressure. The largest and most important application of reverse osmosis is the separation of pure water from seawater and brackish waters; seawater or brackish water is pressurized against one surface of the membrane, causing transport of salt-depleted water across the membrane and emergence of potable drinking water from the low-pressure side.

Dangerous levels of herbicides found in drinking water

Can I get you a glass of weed killer with your dinner?

One of the most widely used herbicides, Atrazine, has been found in drinking water at levels that exceed federal safety guidelines, but the EPA has not published these results and the public was never warned that the safety of their drinking water was in question.
