It seems like this raw water craze isn't almost as good for you as some of these millionaires in Silicon Valley think it is.
According to a report from The New York Times, the demand for "raw water" in and around California's Silicon Valley has sent prices soaring. Companies have started making new types of water bottles that are more eco-friendly, too.
This does not mean, however, that untreated water is completely safe as mother nature also provides her water with natural substances, such as arsenic and radon, that are not friendly to the human organism. As far back in history as Ancient Egypt, people would clarify their water before drinking it, and it is a well known fact among survival experts that even fresh spring water should be boiled before drinking, to eliminate contamination risks. Drinking raw water - including that collected from the most pristine springs - is "dangerous", food safety expert Bill Marler told Business Insider. "The things our forefathers died of we don't see it, because our government is so strict about how our water is cleansed". Cases like the travesty in Flint, Michigan, are very real, and they bring with them very real health consequences.
The company transports and stores the raw water in refrigerated facilities to protect the healthy probiotics present in the water. The draw for raw water fans is what they're not getting from the taps.
"While the water flowing in the streams and rivers of the back-country may look pure, it can still be contaminated with bacteria, viruses, parasites, and other contaminants", it states.

Live Water founder Mukhande Singh claims fluoride is a "mind-control drug" and describes public water as "toilet water with birth control drugs in them". That's why every time you turn the tap for a drink you don't have to ask "hmm, will this refresh me or infect me with something terrible?" Live Water, for instance, will deliver several gallons of the stuff to your doorstep-provided you live in LA or the Bay Area-for $50 or so per month. Will "raw water" catch on in places like Australia, or will it just stay an American trend for now?
A cool glass of (clean) water. "Everyone has the right to sufficient, continuous, safe, acceptable, physically accessible, and affordable water for personal and domestic use". If you still want to have it run off your dirty roof and into your mouth you can do that, but the modern world does what it can to prevent foodborne illnesses.
"When water isn't treated, it can contain chemicals and germs that can make us sick or cause disease outbreaks", he said.
The water has chloramine and fluoride, which is bad for your dental health. "And I feel good drinking it".
