The new trend for untreated, unfiltered spring water is becoming more popular

The new “raw water” trend has been gaining traction throughout the West Coast and in other small pockets throughout the country. New businesses are selling untreated, unfiltered spring water at high prices, arguing that the treatment process of tap water removes beneficial probiotics and bacteria.

According to the New York Times, the company Live Water sells 2.5 gal of untreated spring water for $36.99 each and $14.99 per refill. Live Water, which operates out of Oregon, is not alone; there’s also Tourmaline Spring in Maine and Zero Mass Water in Arizona which installs systems to collect water directly from the atmosphere.

The untreated water movement is gaining popularity with people who distrust the water treatment process, fluoride’s health benefits and the pipe system their water flows through. The founder of Live Water, Mukhande Singh, argues that water filtration results in dead water.

Regarding tap water Singh said, “Tap water? You’re drinking toilet water with birth control drugs in them. Chloramine, and on top of that they’re putting in fluoride. Call me a conspiracy theorist, but it’s a mind-control drug that has no benefit to our dental health.”


Knowledge is Power.

Clearly, people on the west coast aren't thinking with their brains. RAW water? Seriously!!!??? They clearly aren't keeping up with what's going on with the environment. If millions upon millions of people on a global scale are getting sick due to contaminated water BEFORE it's filtered for, what would ever make them think "RAW" water is a good idea and isn't full of contaminants in the first place???

In response to the person below regarding "I know a little bit about". Depends on the filtration company you use. Clearly, the "little bit" you know about water filtration is minimal. I can vouch because I use a filtration company as a customer, AND I test my water before the filter and after. The company I use PUTS IN good minerals (FYI good minerals is GOOD calcium and magnesium) BACK into the water after they strip the water from the bad stuff. If you seriously rely on a company to just tell you they "just don't touch it at all" you need a reality check too.

Truth hurts.

Hmmmmm....Toilet Water

No wonder most males cant get pregnant!!! This is finally the scientific explanation I have been seeking (:


"The Donald" must drink a lot of Tap water (:

I know a little bit about

I know a little bit about water filtration in good quality filters do not take out the good minerals in water they take out all the other bad stuff like fluoride drugs chemicals in my opinion those companies are scamming people stick with filtering water

Bye bye left coast

Looks like a bunch of left coast liberals are about to find the value of water treatment. Good time to buy stock in companies that make body bags,
