Water is cheap and available, and I don’t think we need exotic filtered water. We got along through millions of years with drinking the water that we found. Because of this, I learned to drink through my teeth to filter out the bugs and debris.
Plain Water is All We Need
I am of the conviction that the body wants water, not fruit juice, beer, pop, coffee, tea or other concoction—just plain old tap water is fine with me. Now I have been drinking tap water for 82-years and haven’t been to the doctor a half-dozen times in my life. Meanwhile, I don’t have an ache or pain and—no damned arthritis. There was a time when I drank whiskey and had an unnatural thirst. Even then, I drank lots of water—plain old tap water.

Drink More Water for Health, Vitality and Happiness

That served us well—we had lots of water. We were also instructed to add a little Clorox or any type of household bleach to do the same job.
