How Is Home Distilled Water Better than Bottled
Americans are drinking bottled water in record
numbers- a whopping 5 billion gallons in 2001, according to the
International Bottled Water Association, an industry trade group. That's
about the same amount of water that falls from the American Niagara Falls in
Ounce for ounce, bottled water costs more than
gasoline. Depending on the brand, it costs 250 to 10,000 times more than tap
Americans spend more than $8.3 billion a year on
bottled water, but what they're drinking may not be any safer or better
regulated than tap water. (60-70% of bottled water sold in the US is exempt
from federal regulations because it's packaged and sold in the same state,
not crossing state lines.-Julie Stauffer, Body & Soul Magazine, Aug. 2005,
"Last year Americans spent nearly $11 billion on over 8 billion gallons
of bottled water, and then tossed over 22 billion empty plastic bottles in
the trash. In bottle production alone, the more than 70 million bottles of
water consumed each day in the U.S. drain 1.5 million barrels of oil over
the course of one year." -Solvie Karlstrom, Tapped Out: The True Cost of
While it may be no surprise that we are drinking a
LOT of water, many people have not learned that most bottled water is not
regulated. If you know anything about our water systems and how poorly that
water is regulated, you should be VERY afraid! The first problem with bottled
water is that you don't know what you're getting. The second problem with
bottled water is that you are paying for it! The third problem is that
there are SO many things that can be in water, if these things aren't being
removed, your health will suffer in the end. What are we talking about here?
Pathogens- Bacteria, viruses, and other
nasty bugs which can be fatal. In 2001-2002, more than 1,000 people got sick
and 7 died in 31 outbreaks of waterborne diseases from drinking water (CDC).
Lead. Found in public water distribution
systems and water pipes in some homes (built before 1930). A poisonous
metal, lead can cause anemia, high blood pressure, kidney problems,
increased miscarriage and low birth weight risk, and it also interferes with
brain development in children.
Nitrates. Found in fertilizers and
sewage. Can lead to blue baby syndrome which is potentially fatal.
Pesticides. Known to disrupt hormones,
and have been linked to cancer, birth defects, and nervous system problems.
Other contaminants. Arsenic, radon,
disinfection by-products (chlorine by-products) and other additives like
While these things may all be in bottled water, the
scary thing is that many people still drink water straight from the tap and they
are getting a good source of toxins every day. But let's assume you are
purchasing bottled water and you have done your research on your supplier, and
you feel pretty confident in the product you are getting. There is one more
Toxin Leaches Into Bottled Water
A study headed by Londoner William Shotyk, director
of the Institute of Environmental Geochemistry at the University of Heidelberg
in Germany, found that polyethylene terephthalate, or PET, bottles leach a
deadly toxin called antimony into the water. While Shotyk agrees with Canadian
Bottled Water Association officials that the levels of antimony found in the
study are well below Health Canada accepted levels, he also asks the question,
"Is there going to be a beneficial effect to having antimony in the water?"
It's the timeless argument between scientists and
government officials...just how much poison is enough to damage, and why should
we allow any poison at all? Antimony in small doses can cause headache,
dizziness, and depression. Larger doses cause violent and frequent vomiting and
can lead to death. (Antimony is already implicated in the
gas theory for crib death.)
It's important to note that the longer the water is
in the bottle, the more antimony the water will contain. Also, re-using water
bottles, is a no-no for this reason.

What You Get With Home Distilled Water
The best part is, you can take your tap water and
turn it into something that is no longer harmful to your body, and is actually
GOOD for your body! Check out our chart to see how
water is better. Above all, YOU know that your water is clean and pure
because you are seeing the distillation process for yourself. You can't get that
from your water bottling company!
What Exactly IS Distilled Water?
in its purest form is found in the vapor that rises from the Earth’s surface,
leaving behind any contaminants it may have collected. This process of
evaporation, condensation and precipitation is known as the Hydrologic Cycle.
Distillation simulates this process, turning ordinary tap water into pure, clean
steam vapor which is condensed, then passed through an organic coconut shell
filter. This technology effectively removes bacteria, parasites, herbicides,
pesticides, heavy metals, and
a whole list of synthetic chemicals and industrial
A home distiller is like any other kitchen appliance that sits on your
counter, or wherever you decide to put it. You simply plug it in! Once you taste
home distilled water, you will wonder why you ever drank anything else.

"I bought bottled water for the past two years. After reading
numerous books, articles and other literature about health benefits of
distilled, I purchased a Waterwise distiller. Your literature helped me realize
the cost effectiveness of having my own distiller. I am extremely pleased and
completely satisfied with the results of using your product." -Don, Mercer, WI
"No bottled water of any brand can compare to the taste of
what my Waterwise distiller produces. I am so glad to have it.... Thank you
very, very much." -Heather, Macon, GA
"The Waterwise distiller is easy to use and economical. It
costs much less than having bottled water delivered. And since we produce it
ourselves we know it's pure." -Anthony and Julie, Everson, WA
"The vast majority of bottled water is merely public tap
water. And the real shock is you could pay as much as $3.50 a bottle for the
same objectionable quality that comes from your home tap water." -Dr. Robert D.
