As you know, my family is from the western U.S. and we do drink water from our local water system.
Even though our potable water is safe to drink, it is not always safe to drink non-potable water. With the rise of bottled water products like water bottles and kegs, there are also health risks associated with consuming bottled water. Not only are they highly concentrated, they have higher levels of fluoride, which has been linked to bone loss, increased risk for diabetes, and the even more concerning risk of cancer.
We recommend that you only drink bottled water if you are specifically looking for something like “pure, mineral water” from the tap. Even if you are just buying a bottle of water you may want to consider adding non-potable water options to your water consumption.
The health risks associated with consuming non-potable water is pretty straightforward. The reason it’s so easy to get sick, especially when you’re dehydrated, is because you’re drinking high levels of sodium and chloride. The water you drink is not filtered, and the high sodium ions will cause you to retain water in your body, making you feel thirsty (and therefore more thirsty). The high levels of fluoride and chlorine could also cause severe damage to your teeth.
You can still drink tap water provided you’re not drinking much more than a cup or two a day, but it’s likely to have more of an impact on your body than a bottle of water.
Of course the water you drink is not filtered, you’re drinking tap water, and there are still a lot of harmful chemicals in it.
In our research as one of the leading health insurers in the US, we found that drinking tap water does not carry significant health risks. We found that drinking tap water does not cause any negative health effects, either in the short-term or the long-term. We have also found that consuming water from public water systems does not carry significant health risks, either in the short-term or the long-term.
What we found is that drinking tap water does not carry significant health risks. We have found that drinking tap water does not cause any negative health effects in either the short-term or the long-term. We have also found that drinking water from public water systems does not carry significant health risks, either in the short-term or the long-term.
We don’t have any long-term health outcomes to show for our findings, but we are always vigilant about the people around us. We are always keeping an eye on those around us, especially those around us with medical conditions. Our research and studies have been focused on public water systems, so it is not surprising that we have not found significant health effects from drinking tap water.
Public water systems has serious health risks, including cancers and a host of other ailments – just ask the people who have been poisoned by the tap water in the USA. On the other hand, we are always looking for people who have medical conditions that could be related to drinking non-potable water.
