Are you implying that the large increase in average life expectancy from the 30's can be in part attributed to usage of filtered water?

Wow.... Judging by the comments here some of you people have never left the city or ever used non-city utilities. This is depressing, then again its easy to see the first ones to be naturally selected should city services go down.

Raw water craze? Is that the fancy new term for well water and spring water now? I've been drinking well water and spring water since I was a child and the stuff typically has a lot of iron and calcium in it. The water is typically better than the stale or chlorinated water from the city. The flavor changes so much from place to place its free natural flavoring for your water

What about the people here down South? The water down here, if not purified is even more of a risk due to brain eating amoeba's. I mean , there is purified spring water that you can buy here, but drinking it down in the South raw is insane.

He? And I can see why my reading of the 30's referring to the time period in this century was contextually wrong as she was referring to a time when the average life expectancy was around the 30's. The question still seems to be valid whenever we're talking about the 1930's or the time in which our average life expectancy average was in the 30's (17th-century England)

I would hope that anyone, myself included, accept the risks when they choose non-treated water. We have the medical facilities to ensure that anyone who becomes sick can easily seek treatment. As far as I'm concerned, the only real problem is when avid advertisers of the "raw water" fad outright deceive people into thinking that there's no risk involved. Well, and when drinkers foolishly believe there's no danger. Many well and spring owners periodically test their water, if I recall correctly, and for good reason. Then again, if one were to try and sell a gimmick, it's kind of self-defeating to inform potential customers that they might get the shits, or worse. Ha! I bet some of the supposed "raw water" brands really sell tap water.

Excerpt from the article sums it all up, really.


“In some respects,” Jones said, “the fact that people are worried filtration is removing necessary minerals is really an extreme case of one of these First World problems.”

just one of the many stupid trends by people in hope of long life... immortality ? or just for clicks and views. Just because you see some idiots did it on youtube-- it's proven safe to do the same ? like one of the recent trends
