My guest this week is ChicagoHealers.com Practitioner Dr. Raymond Hatland, DDS
We’re talking about bottled versus tap water. In our modern age with its focus on convenience, bottled water has become extremely popular. But the plastic bottles are also spawning massive amounts of trash. The debate between whether or not bottled water or tap water is better to drink has recently become a hot topic for discussion.
Dr. Hatland breaks down the pros and cons of bottled and tap water. Among them:
Bottled water may contain unacceptable levels of the plastic chemicals. i.e. Bpa. (Bisphenol-A) is made from a combination of phenol and acetone.
Bottled water usually has a very acidic pH – this can lead to more inflammation in the body, fluid retention etc. Tap water generally has a neutral or slightly alkaline pH.
If you opt for tap water, try an activated carbon filter with silver to reduce bacterial count as well as an alkalinizing unit.
