"Drink At Least 8 Glasses Of Water A Day" -- Really?
Hanover, NH -- It has become accepted wisdom: "Drink at least eight glasses of water a day!" Not necessarily, says a DMS physician Heinz Valtin, MD. The universal advice that has made guzzling water a national pastime is more urban myth than medical dogma and appears to lack scientific proof, he found

Water is the primary transporter of nutrients throughout the body. It is involved in nearly every function. You want to be sure of what you’re drinking. Is it what you think you’re drinking. If you are a water drinker, here is some information that may be of interest to you.
Water is classified usually by its source, mineral content, or system of treatment. Because there’s a lot of overlap used in the criteria to group water some water appears in more than one classification. On top of this, most states do not have any laws governing accurate labeling.

Filtered Water
This is water that is made pure, clean, uncontaminated, and better tasting. There are different types of methods used. It can be distilled or sent through an activated carbon process or reverse osmosis. This type of water can come from any source and to date there is no filter that can prevent bacteria or viruses from passing through.

Mineral Water
This water is natural spring water. Laws in Canada and Europe mandate that this water flow freely from the source. It cannot be pumped or forced from the ground and must be bottled directly at the source! Just beware that the mineral content varies from source to source, so if you’re drinking it for therapeutic reasons know what minerals you are taking in because if you do not lack minerals and you are consuming a large amount you may be doing more harm than good! An occasional bottle here and there is fine.

Natural Spring Water
This means that the mineral content has not been altered but...it may or may not have gone through a filtering process. This water can also be treated. Carbonation or flavor can also be added.

Deionized or Demineralized Water
When the electrical charge of an atom or molecule has been neutralized by removing or adding electrons, the resulting water is called deionized or demineralized. The deionizing process removes nitrates along with calcium and magnesium. Metals are also removed: cadmium, barium, lead, and some forms of radium!

Hard Water
This contains calcium and magnesium. This is what prevents soap from lathering. This also creates a sediment film on hair, clothes, pipes, etc. Epidemiological studied show that deaths from heart disease is lower in areas where the drinking water is hard.

Soft Water
This type of water does not contain calcium and magnesium and therefore soap suds are easily formed when used. Epidemiological studies indicate deaths from heart disease is opposite that of hard water.

Tap Water
It is obtained from surface water. Run offs from ponds, creeks, streams, rivers, and lakes. Rainwater washes pollutants into these bodies of water. That means you are drinking residues from fertilizer, insecticides, lead, gas, factory exhausts etc. Not only that, in order for you to be able to drink tap water, things are added to it to mask the taste. Things like alum, carbon, chlorine, fluorine, lime, phosphates, soda ash, and sodium aluminates! (can anyone say Alzheimer’s?) Some tap water is better than others. Tap water can be improved in many ways. You can boil it to kill the bacteria. Putting it in an open container for several hours will remove the chlorine taste and the odor. You can also run it through a blender to remove other substances but, none of these methods will improve the quality of the water...only the taste.
I recommend Steamed Distilled Water, contaminants are minimal.
