Wanted to get a consensus opinion on this, since there hasn't been a post here comparing these two specifically. For context, I live in upstate NY, and the water from the tap is relatively clean. It has no chlorine added I believe, and tastes... (more)

Since I lost some twenty pounds on the paleo diet, I have developed several new wrinkles in my face. I know when I take a shower I absorb a fair amount of chlorine so I wonder whether any of you have observed that a filter for chlorine in the... (more)

Hot chlorinated municipal water dries your skin terribly. Me and my wife did not notice it until we moved to the country and used well water for a year. Then we visited my father in the city and took a hot shower. It dried our skin horribly and... (more)

I personally could not find a filter that removed 100% of everything (fluoride, lead, etc) and that did not need to have filters changed all the time. I even bought 2 Culligan systems only to find one was defective from the start (I only found... (more)

Not a question, and definately spam. But the website looks nice. One problem though, I click on Paleo and the first one recipe is pizza dough, second is black beans, third is corn.... I didn't look any further than that.

As empty beer cans are to rednecks, so plastic water bottles are to this self-proclaimed "classy lady." In an effort to combat both the sheer number of empty plastic bottles littering my car & home (unless I'm willing to make recycling-bin... (more)

Check out the Clear2o pitcher. Amazon sells it or check out the clear2o website. Best one on the market, hands down.

Do you filter your water? How do you do it? Reverse Osmosis, Carbon, etc. Between the chemical runoff and the government actually ADDING chemicals to the water it seems that a water filter is a necessity. What do you use if anything? (more)

I use a reverse osmosis machine. After that I use these drops to re-mineralize the water. http://www.traceminerals.com/products/liquid-tablet-minerals/concentrace-ionic-minerals (more)

I can't buy an expensive filter right now... and I don't want fluoride or any other chemicals in my water. Does distilled water really deplete the body of minerals? Do we really get that many minerals from regular water? What is the healthiest... (more)

I believe that distilled water is healthy for you and you should consider drinking it on the basis alone that the toxic, Sodium Fluoride isn't in it. Avoid tap water at all costs, unless you know for sure that Fluoride isn't being added to it.... (more)

Can anyone recommend a really good water filter or system? I want to remove the floride from my drinking water. I am opposed to bottled water from a health perspective and an environmental one as well. Extra points if the filter is portable.... (more)

The FluorideMaster whole house filter system filters fluoride out of typical municipal water. Its a more reasonable option than the whole house reverse osmosis systems. Its not perfect, but at less than $1,100 it is reasonable. It uses a large... (more)
