Best Water?

12 years 2 months ago #5976 by Rosemary
On reading this thread again, it brought to mind the Delany Sisters of Raleigh, NC. They both lived to be over 100 years old. In their book, "Having Our Say, The Delany Sisters First 100 Years", when asked what they did to maintain their good health, they mentioned the fact that they always boiled their drinking water.

I had forgotten that till now.

I was 52 when I developed bladder cancer. No risk factors - no smoking, no chemical exposures. Never thought about the water. The year before the cancer, I had a Leydig cell tumor of the testicle. My identical twin brother didn't have any of these goodies. Guess it must be living in Long Island.

I seriously doubt the brand of bottled water had anything to do with getting bladder cancer... for me it was 20 years of chewing tobacco.. not to mention the thousands of cases of diet pop, couple years smoking unfiltered cowboy cigarretes (and other things) as a teen, exposure to paints and chemicals.. All of my buddies with the same exposures are BC free...

Trying to figure out the cause is like trying to herd cats..

Found some great water that you can drink and have no worries about:

www.pentawater.com

It's a little more expensive then most bottled waters but I don't think you can find anything better! I can usually find it at health food and vitamin stores...

I am 50ish and have drank spring water for 10 years -- then swithced to distilled water which has nothing since it is boiled and reclaimed.
I was told that this was the purest water because of the process.
So for the last 18 years I have been drinking bottled water.
Think about whats added to the water at the treatment plant.
Besides distilled has no taste, which it shouldn't and tap water does.

these are just my own feeling about water...

Mrjoeo,

  I don't think that anyone really knows what causes this.  You may never know.
  I am using a Brita water filter.  I have no idea if it does any good at all, but the water tastes really good.

  After my diagnosis, I was afraid of tap water, coffee, wine and microwaves.
My doctor gave me good talking to and said that tap water was fine(as was coffee, wine and microwaves)

If the tap water wasn't fine, I guess everyone in the family would get BC...especially the people who had smoked all their lives.  But, it didn't happen that way.  I, who have always been so careful about everything that I touch or put in my mouth..I'm the one who got it...
