Is drinking water making you fat?

Our bodies are made up of 75% water, it’s a massive part of what we are and how we function.

It’s easy to think that water is water and that’s it… that could be a big mistake.

Our domestic water supplies are treated with high levels of chlorine which affect the taste and there are thousands of other contaminants that are found in our drinking water supplies that can have long term effects on our health.

An area of increasing concern is the amount of ESTROGEN (female hormones) and estrogen like substances (usually from plastics) that are in our water supplies.  These substances are thought responsible for reduced SPERM COUNT in men and the increased incidence of ‘MAN BOOBS’.

 It’s of particular concern if you have children in particular boys as scientists are noting increasing feminization of baby boys brains, we’ve already seen it with fish in some of our rivers turning totally female, so I think it’s important to protect yourself against these contaminants.

I’ve put together a detailed report about water contamination, filtration and some 21st Century technologies.
