Drinking Water can be dangerous too...

Ice water may be harmful to persons with cardiovascular disease. Sudden drops in tissue temperatures are a shock to the system and cause a strain on the heart.
  1. The colder the water we do drink with meals, the slower the digestive process works.
  2. Drinking water with meals is not beneficial, since we have the tendency to wash foods down instead of adequately chewing them up.
  3. Hot water is more dangerous than using cold water and heating it. Hot water is more corrosive and can contain larger amounts of dangerous debris.
  4. If you consume 15 to 23 eight ounce glasses of water in a one hour period, it could be dangerous to your health.
  5. Water in our bodies dissolves the foods, carries nutrients to various pars of the body, leaves the body as perspiration, helps maintain the normal body temperature, cleanses our systems of wastes, and is then eliminated through the kidneys at the rate of three to eight pints per day.
  6. Americans are spending over 2.4 billion dollars on bottled water annually and are purchasing almost that dollar amount in home purifying equipment.
  7. Most all filter systems only remove large particles. They still leave the small ones, such as viruses, etc.
  8. There are 55,000 chemical dump holes across the United States, according to the EPA, that can leak contaminants into the water supplies in those areas.
  9. Forty-seven percent of the water supply in the U.S. goes for food production.
  10. To feed one person in the United States for a year, it requires approximately 1,726,000 gallons of water.
  11. Other chemicals, such as chlorine, fluorine, phosphates, alum, sodium aluminates, and others are frequently added to drinking water for purification. Fluoridation is considered by some to be the most dangerous of all methods of treating water. Sodium fluoride, one of the most poisonous of all chemical compounds, is the active ingredient in rat poisons and moth control preparations.
