The latest trend that seems to be gathering attention in 2018 is the craze for drinking so-called “raw water.”
When a small, Oregon-based start-up companyÂ started selling “pristine mountain spring water” to people in the San Francisco area, they tapped into the fashionable notion that the more “natural” something is, then the better for you it will be.
What is “Raw Water”?
Raw water is, quite simply, water that springs from the earth; or in this particular case, from “an ancient aquifer.” It is completely untreated and unfiltered.
One of several companies selling raw water around the country says that filtering and treating water to remove contaminants “disrupts healthy bacterias” that would otherwise prove beneficial to the body. Â The company claims that drinking raw, toxin-free mineral water complete with algae and microbes is positively good for us. Â After all, the unprocessed water has been drunk by the local townspeople for years, so it must be good, right?
The Not-So-Healthy Bitsâ€¦
Well, that depends on how picky you are about the other things that might be in that “pure” water. Â Manure run off? Â Pesticides? Â Herbicides? Â Septic tank spill over? Â All of these, plus harmful bacteria and viruses could be present in raw water. Â The harsh truth is that raw water is downright dangerous. Â
Why “Raw Water” is a Thing
But its advent is also understandable. Â For millions of people, Americaâ€™s water system is a state of disrepair. Â The billions needed to ensure that all Americans can trust the water in their taps again might eventually be found, but that work will take decades. Â In the meantime, many people run the risk of drinking tap water contaminated with lead, drug residues and more. Â
Even bottled water can’t be trusted, and for many the environmental cost is now way too high to contemplate adding to it. Â Raw water is perhaps the inevitable next step for people who are tying themselves in knots worrying about what water is good for them!
