​Why Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration and Debunking the Top 3 Myths

Posted by Ewater on

Americans are responsible for up to 50 billion water bottles’ worth of waste every year—on the low end, this is an overwhelming amount of plastic waste that just doesn’t break down. Since the U.S.’s recycling is only at 23% according to Charles Fishman (Harvard University), 38 Billion bottles would end up in landfills.

But what else are you supposed to do? Research shows that maintaining proper hydration improves health, offering benefits to support everything from weight loss to skin care to recovery from serious illness or surgery. If you want to know beyond the shadow of a doubt that you’re getting the water quality you need to maintain optimal health, you need clean, pure water, and the popular belief is that the only place to get that is from a bottle.

Thankfully, this isn’t the case. If you want the best filtered water, maximum hydration to improve your health, but don’t want to spoil the health of the environment in the process, you’ve come to the right place. You want a specialized Reverse Osmosis (RO) water filtration system in your home.

You may have come across a lot of negativity towards Reverse Osmosis water systems. 

Let’s take a minute to debunk the top 3 spin doctored facts.

  1. RO Systems produce harmful demineralized water or “Dead” water. The basis of this comes from the fact that RO removes almost all minerals in the water. This is only partially true. RO does remove all of the rock based minerals or dead dirt minerals. However, the plant based minerals are not filtered out. Our bodies cannot use or process bed minerals or rocks, the proof of this is that if we could then you could go out in your yard and have a healthy serving of dirt and get your necessary minerals, but obviously we cannot get or mineral requirements from minerals. If we could perhaps the saying would be “A rock a day keeps the doctor away”. In order for the human body to be able to use minerals those rock based minerals must be processed by plants at which point they become plant based minerals and our bodies can use them. So yes, the process of RO removes all of the dead dirt minerals which are body cannot use anyway, but leaves the plant based minerals (not that there is much of that left in our tap water). Since the plant based minerals are left for the body to actually use the water is not de-mineralized and therefore not harmful to drink as many claim.

  2. RO water is acidic and not good for the body . RO water is slightly acidic and this is because it removes all the junk in the water. When the TDS of the water is high which tap water is because it contains all the dirt minerals and chemicals this raises the pH, when you remove all of that as RO does (you typically have 90 to 98% TDS reduction) you will naturally have a more acidic water. The pH myth is being exploited today in order to sell Alkalizing systems upwards of $4000 dollars. The fact of the matter is that people making the claims for alkaline water are spinning the truth and using only partial truths. The body’s pH isn’t controlled by water its controlled by diet and the consumption of calories. Water is simply a staple that the body needs to function properly but does not directly control pH. A great resource on this is a book by Roger Bezansis called pH Madness. It explains in great detail why the myth of alkaline water is false.

  3. RO Water filtration is extremely wasteful . In the past this was true, there was a lot of waste water produced in order to create the clean water. In some cases it was as high as 5 gallons of waste water for 1 gallon of clean water. But numbers like that were almost 20 years ago. Things advance and technology gets better. Most units now are close to 1.5 gallons of waste to 1 gallon of clean water. Top of the line systems now can actually recycle the waste water and therefore having zero waste whatsoever.

There are always 2 sides to a story and this is the other side of the RO story, but its more than just that, its actually the whole story. What is prevalent on the internet is a small concept taken out of context and twisted to sound somewhat believable when ultimately it is just counter intuitive to how nature and our own bodies work.

RO water isn’t perfect, but if you are concerned about what you put in your body, than currently it is the best option.
