“The best type of water filtration system combines a reverse-osmosis (RO) water system with a carbon filter”.
Boundless Energy - Deepak Chopra Page 108 - Chapter 7 Water Quality.
The best filters are those that use reverse-osmosis; they’re called “RO” filters for short.
Spontaneous Healing - Andrew Weil, M.D. Page 162 - Contaminated Water My advice about drinking water is simple and concise:
Install a reverse osmosis filtration system in your kitchen.
The Healing Energies Of Water - Charlie Ryrie Page 101 - Filtering Your Water For Health - “Reverse Osmosis systems produce the cleanest, purest water of any filtration system.
In Israel, every member of the army carries a portable RO filter because of their concern about the effects of possible nuclear contamination.
” Optimum Sports Nutrition - Dr Michael-Colgan Page 24 - Clean Your Own Water
“ A big advance is the new four-step reverse osmosis system” (Garden Route Water Consultants RO systems have a five-step filtration system.)
The Fit For Life Cookbook - Marilyn Diamond Page 53 - What About Water?
“My own recent research and personal experience have satisfied me that equal quality, superior taste and other health advantages from high levels of oxygen can best be obtained using the reverse osmosis activated carbon process. These appliances are available in the RSA.”
Natural Health Natural Medicine - Andrew Weil Page 81 - What Will You Have To Drink?
“People sometimes ask me if it is all right to drink water that is mineral free, such as distilled and reverse osmosis water. I think it is fine. Water is not the source of your minerals. You get them from food, especially by eating a variety of vegetables. There is no truth to the belief that distilled water leaches minerals out of the body.
The Choice Is Clear - Dr. Allen E. Banik Page 13
The Fault Lies In Inorganic Minerals “The only minerals the body can utilize are the organic minerals. (from living matter) All the others are foreign minerals and must be disposed of or eliminated. Herein lies the problem we have never suspected as the possible cause of nearly all our ageing diseases.”
Fit For Life -Living Health - Harvey and Marilyn Diamond - Page 99-100 - Water and Minerals
“The body can only use organic minerals. It is physiologically impossible for your body to use an inorganic mineral. Minerals are only usable as they are found in organic forms of life such as plants. We are not rock or soil eaters. When you drink water containing minerals, they are inorganic, they are finely ground rocks. They literally clog up the body and vascular system.”
The Natural Way - Mary-Ann Shearer Page 90 - Water : How Much, How Often?
“A question I am often asked is, ‘What about mineral water?” Although bottled water is rich in minerals, unfortunately these minerals are not present in a form that our bodies are able to use easily. Unlike the minerals in fresh fruits and vegetables, those in mineral water are easily deposited in our joints, muscles and tissues, where they can cause stiffness, gall or kidney stones, premature ageing of the skin and even cataracts.”

“Don’t Drink Inorganic Mineralized Water” Page 144 - “Your minerals must come from an organic source, from something living or that has lived. Humans do not have the same chemistry as plants. Only the living plant has the ability to extract inorganic minerals from the earth and convert them to organic minerals for your body to absorb and utilize.” Page 146 - “Pure water is the greatest life-giver and essential for health”
Water Can Undermine Your Health - N.W. Walker, Doctor of Science. Page 11
There Are Minerals and Minerals; Leach Which? “The minerals in the Natural Waters are inactive. They do not contain enzymes, the essence of life. Nature has made a provision to instill life into these mineral elements by means of the development of the growth and maturity of plants. In the course of the plants growth the roots collect minerals from the earth, convert them into live organic elements and absorb them into the stem, the leaves, the seeds, and the flower and fruit.
It is natural that the use of fresh raw vegetable and fruit juices should furnish the cells and tissues of the body with the finest kind and quality of nourishment in the form of ultra-microscopic minerals replete with enzymes.”
Ron Kennedy MD - www.medical-library.net
“Water from the ground comes with minerals alright, but these minerals are in salt form. A good example is CACO3 (calcium carbonate). Common locations for the precipitation of calcium are the lens of the eye (cataracts) the kidneys (kidney stones) and the walls of the arteries (arteriosclerosis). Unbound minerals must be excreted, which is extra work for the kidneys or stored. This makes dust of the argument that healthy water is mineralized, and dust is of course the source of minerals in mineral water. Your mineral source should be plants not water, the purpose of water is to cleanse the body. To do the best job of that it must be free of anything else.
Carbon-filtered water is highly touted, mainly by the people who sell carbon filtration equipment, but many minerals are left after filtration. Reverse Osmosis is a better solution, but still leaves inorganic minerals present. I suggest you leave these solutions alone and opt for some combination of steam distilled water and the juice of organically grown vegetables and fruits. However, some systems combine carbon filtration with reverse osmosis and this is, to me, an acceptable solution.
The Choice is Clear - Dr Allen E. Banik Page 35 - What was Connie Mack’s secret?
“Connie Mack, manager of the Philadelphia A’s for nearly 30 years, reputedly would not allow his players to drink hard water under any circumstances. He would not accept any contract unless he could furnish his men with distilled water, and on some occasions, low-mineral mountain water. Distilled water kept his players free from constipation and in perfect health. Seldom did his pitchers have sore shoulders due to hard water mineral deposits in their joints. If your aspiring pitchers consider the big leagues as a career, let them remember Connie Mack’s secret. Connie, too, kept his perfect health to the age of 90.”

“But, and it’s a big but, YOU HAVE TO DRINK IT CLEAN. Many athletes who are very careful what food they put into their bodies, are careless about water. They will drink from public water fountains, from faucets at home and gym, or from gym coolers filtered only through a cheap carbon filter to make it taste better.”
Page 22 - Buying Clean Water
“Why? Because most bottled water is simply tap water put through minimal conditioning filters to make it taste better. That’s why it is so profitable. Brands called “Mineral Waters” may have a modicum of minerals added. And “Sparkling Mineral Waters”, seltzers, and club sodas also have a carbonation added. But they are just tap water with most of its contaminants still in there. There is nothing intrinsically wonderful about springs (water) anyway. They are never pure water.
Page 25 - Clean Your Own Water
“If you relied on water for your minerals, you would be sadly lacking. It is the growing produce that takes up the water and concentrates its minerals, that provides most of your mineral requirements.
Lifetime Health - Dr Christiaan -Page 240
“There are two processes that can give you pure water. One of them is to distil the water three times. The other is an apparatus that works with reverse osmosis and de-ionisation. The later is available in various models and can be built in under the sink.”
Water The Shocking Truth - Paul C. Bragg N.D.PhD. Patricia Bragg N.D. Ph.D. Page 138 -TDS and Chronic Disease
“In his study, “Relationship of Water to the Risk of Dying,” Dr. Sauer chronicled the relationship of Total Dissolved Solids to heart disease, cancer and other chronic diseases (Total Dissolved Solids – or TDS – is the term for all the elements present in any water supply). It had been thought for centuries that the European mineral waters so very high in TDS were beneficial to health. But Dr. Sauer’s study found that as TDS increases in a water supply, so does the number of chronic diseases in the population using that supply.
(Author’s Note: At our home in Desert Hot Springs, one of California’s renowned hot mineral water resorts, our water pipes had to be replaced after only a few years due to mineral buildup in the pipes. What this inorganic mineral-laced water does to the plumbing in buildings it also
does to the human pipes!).
The lower the TDS level in the water, the more efficiently your body’s cells actually get hydrated by the water you drink. The higher the TDS level in the water, the greater the probability of harmful contaminants that can pose health risks or hinder the absorption of water molecules on the cellular level.
Treatment by REVERSE OSMOSIS represents a big step above filters of any type.
