I have just purchased an awesome water filter and cooler apparatus. With the summer months I have been consuming much more water than usual. The filtered water tastes much nicer that straight tap water. Although once Brisbane changes to using recycled sewerage I will stick to bottled water or will be making sure the filter has an absolute pore size of 1 micron or less.
I always believed the health professionals adage that we must drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water a day. Well now I know that this is just another fallacy. In fact you can drown internally if you drink too much water and go into a fluid induced coma and die.
Now I don’t know about you but that doesn’t seem like a healthy lifestyle to me.
I subscribe to Dr William Douglass and he has been very vocal for many years about the dangers of drinking too much water, for quite some time. Dr Douglass gives the
background to how this myth came into being and points out about how everyone used to carry around Evian bottled water this exercise of course made Evian a very rich company.
Guess what Evian is spelt backwards. Yep you got it – naive. And I think that is what we are when it comes to many health related issues. We blindly follow
what the health industry tell us, and who advises them what to say – the multi national Pharmaceutical companies.
William Douglass also dispels many of the other myths that have been perpetrated by the health industry. So if you are interested in finding out some of
these fallacies then sign up for his free newsletter, I find it full of interesting information.
Of course he sells health products but you aren’t under any obligation to buy anything. And I am only interested in the information he provides.
