People Are Now Drinking 'Raw Water'

Cholera and Hepatitis A are two of the risks of drinking unfiltered untreated

Raw water is water that has not been treated, processed, or filtered and so contains all of its original properties as nature has deemed it to be.

Startups dedicated to untreated water are also gaining steam. The reality, though, is one that could involve serious illnesses uncommon in modern America.

According to a report from The New York Times, many people in places such as San Francisco are jumping at the chance to buy their water "off the grid", and buying what has been called "raw water".

They even endorse wacky charlatan Doug Evans, who rewarded shareholders stung by the failure of his Juicero juicing company by indulging in a 10-day cleanse, drinking nothing but "Live Water". Potentially deadly bacteria such as E. coli, diseases including cholera and Hepatitis A, and infections such as Giardia can all be transmitted via untreated water. "It stays most fresh within one lunar cycle of delivery", he said of his own Live Water. We have no idea how many lurk in raw water sources. As of right now, one can find a 2.5-gallon bottle of raw water for $36.99.

The company also says that "all other filtered and even bottled spring waters are sterilized with UV light, ozone gas, and a sub micron filter".

Water - where it comes from, how its treated and what it's bottled in - has always been the subject of heated debates.

"While the water flowing in the streams and rivers of the back-country may look pure, it can still be contaminated with bacteria, viruses, parasites, and other contaminants", it states. He told the New York Times that "real water" should also expire after a few months.

Butterflies and Moths May Have Predated Flowers
Van Eldijk conducted a study on 70 scales that were discovered from the stone and then examine the structure of those 70 scales. One set of scales was solid all the way through and compact as steamrolled almonds - "primitive", van Eldijk called them.

Michelle Francl, who chairs the chemistry department at Bryn Mawr College in Pennsylvania, said truly raw water, which is simply hydrogen and oxygen, is fine to drink - as long as it's clean, which is the issue.

"Nearly everything conceivable that can make you sick can be found in water".

Live Water founder Mukhande Singh claims fluoride is a "mind-control drug" and describes public water as "toilet water with birth control drugs in them".

Those who sell it hold that all this virginal unprocessed-ness is super good for you. Proponents of "raw water" are particularly concerned about tap water because fluoride is added (which has been shown to improve dental hygiene) and some tap water flows through lead pipes.

Before it comes out of a faucet in a home, tap water has generally gone through several stages of processing, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

Live Water is trying to make everyone healthier by providing untreated water.
