Filtered water from the fridge door and I use a Berkey filter for cooking water.

BNetter to not use a filter at all than to use it too long.

We stopped using a Brita water pitch and installed a reverse osmosis system after doing a bunch of reading regarding healthy water.

Also reading up on the huge health benefits of light water which is water with reduced deuterium levels that has gained interest with research specialists.

(Coming back to this thread after an extended absence, forgive me if I am repeating myself)

I'd love to have some well water from west Texas where the fluoride levels are naturally high. I hear there is a much lower incidence of cavities in that area, geographically (confirmed by thousands, if not millions of military medical records recorded during draft years). I'm surprised some company doesn't bottle that water up, as-is, and sell it nationwide.

I have read a bit on this as well, need to do a little more research to see how we can do this.

Our city water is undrinkable. They use Bromine to disinfect it which is at least as bad, if not worse then Chlorine. We fill up our reusable 5 gallon plastic bottle at the store and have a machine that chills or heats the water. We are in the process of digging a well, but I'm getting tired of digging out 20 lb river rock. I'm down 5 ft and no water yet.

80 more feet should do the trick.
