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)

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)

I've never noticed much difference between showering with unchlorinated well water and using chlorinated city water. I'd just make sure to keep the showers cool to avoid drying the skin. This also seems to have a toning effect, especially if you... (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)

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)

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.
