Why Are Rich People Spending $25 Per Gallon For "Raw" Drinking Water?

Why Are Rich People Spending $25 Per Gallon For

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has a webpage warning campers and hikers about the perils of drinking untreated water that flows from the earth.

Of course, if you do order some Live Water, you'd better drink it fast. I don't even know. You know what all these things have in common?

Raw water, it turns out, is the latest health/drink fad causing a stir, and it doesn't come from a tap.

In case you haven't noticed, Silicon Valley is obsessed with health, or at least the appearance of health.

But tap water doesn't have that special something; "In the community of tap-water skeptics, many talk about water the way others might about fine wine". Unfortunately this sterilization destroys beneficial sources of minerals and probiotics.

Dr Donald Hensrud, the director of the Healthy Living Program, compares raw water to the anti-vaxxer movement and warns of the dangers of taking Living Water's claims at face value.

Another store in San Diego, Liquid Eden, offers options including "fluoride-free, chlorine-free and a "mineral electrolyte alkaline" drinking water that goes for $US2.50 ($3) a gallon". Straight out of Mother Nature's tit. They'd give their right eyes to have a properly treated water source and yet over here in the developed world, we're turning our back on it.

Business Insider also notes that some people are spending up to $61 United States dollars ($76 CAD) for a 2.5-gallon jug of unfiltered and untreated water.

The New York Times notes in its story that there is "no scientific evidence that fluoride is a mind-control drug, yet plenty to show that it aids dental health".

Take a moment to enjoy this calming water shot after reading that. It's called natural selection and she eats that for breakfast. We have no idea how many lurk in raw water sources.

These diseases are very, very nasty.

"It stays most fresh within one lunar cycle of delivery", he said. Even from the cleanest streams, unfiltered water can contain animal faeces and spread diseases and contaminants including Giardia, Hepatitis A, cholera, and E. coli.

Like vaccinations, water is treated to keep us safe. Its exact steps vary from town to town (since they get water from different sources), but all are created to eradicate the 90 most common contaminants from water. However, this is only an appearance, as clear spring water is full of bacteria and dirt which can only be removed through serious purification processes.

"You want to drink tap water, drink tap water".

Haas has previously provided expert input and commentary, based on his extensive research, following a number of water contamination events including the Flint water crisis, the Ebola outbreak in 2014, and several chemical spills.
