Why the Berkey Water Filter is a wise investment in your health
(NaturalHealth365) With a new water crisis popping up in the news practically every week, there isn’t much explanation needed for this one. Be warned: the toxins in our water supply pose a very real threat to human health – which is why I think owning a Berkey Water Filter system is a wise investment.
Best of all, this water purification system does NOT depend on electricity to do its job.
From lead, and PFCs to toxic chromium 6, there has been so much media coverage – this year alone – on the gross negligence of our water treatment facilities within the United States. Bottom line, if you’re looking to avoid or overcome any health crisis – securing access to clean drinking water is a must!
More than 200 million Americans are exposed to unsafe levels of heavy metal contaminants, pesticides, and other toxic chemicals
Let’s face it: Tap water is filled with unwanted toxic such as, endocrine disruptors, mood-altering medications, antibiotics and other pharmaceutical agents – which get flushed down the toilet and reintroduced into the water supply.
With all of these concerns, it has become a critical health issue – what is the quality of the water you drink? Of course, I’ve written extensively about the value of drinking (pure) spring water – but, not everyone has access to this kind of water.
The Berkey Water Filter system offers clean water (for pennies per gallon) compated to expensive brands of bottled water. In addition, several brands of bottled water fail to provide clean drinking water – because their filtration systems are not that great.
Berkey Water Filters remove 99.9% of viruses, bacteria, heavy metals, micro-organisms, pharmaceuticals, and trihalomethanes among other contaminants.
What makes the Berkey Water Filter so special?
The Berkey Black Filter Elements are so powerful, that they are classified as a purifier. Many water filters on the market may claim to be a purifier but do not meet the performance requirements for this classification.
In order to be classified as a water purifier, a water treatment device must remove at least 99.9999% of pathogenic bacteria (known as a log 6 reduction in the water treatment industry) and reduce viruses by 99.99% (log 4 reduction).
Berkey Purifiers far surpass this standard and actually remove 99.9999999% known as a log 9 reduction, when dealing with pathogenic bacteria. This distinction is what makes Berkey so special plus, it’s the only certifiable gravity fed water purification system.
The health benefits of using a Berkey Water Filter
• Conveniently protect your loved ones from toxic chemical exposures such as chromium 6, lead, Perfluorinated Chemicals (PFCs), and pharmaceuticals from your tap water.
• Peace of mind – in the event of an emergency like, loss of electricity, that you will have access to clean drinking water.
• Having purified water in your home does not mean having to install a costly, in-line system.
• Having plenty of clean water readily available to help curb your appetite, detoxify the body and lose excess body weight.
What else does the Berkey Water Filter have to offer?
In-line water purification systems can be extremely costly. The Berkey Filter System is a free-standing counter top unit, making it completely portable and affordable. The filters within them last 3-5 years on average, meaning the cost is literally pennies per gallon.
In addition, the portable Berkey units are perfect for travel, or vacationing. Even for camping these filters are ideal to take along. They are powerful enough to filter lake water, and even water from a stagnant pond.
Living a healthy lifestyle, and making better choices for you and your family should not start and stop with the food that you eat. Choosing to drink only clean, purified water will bring you one step closer to meeting your health and fitness goals by avoiding exposure to unwanted toxins.
