Minerals in our drinking water: Inorganic vs. Organic.
There are 120 inorganic element that make up the earth’s surface. Inorganic minerals are referred as salts or mineral salts. When these inorganic minerals are dissolved in water they are referred “ total dissolved solids” or TDS. Throughout our lives we have been taught that we need mineral diet; no one disputes this need. However, many dispute the correct source and composition needed supply our bodies with these necessary minerals. Should these minerals be organic or inorganic ? Many feel that our drinking water is a good source of minerals needed by the human body. Is this so? Should we depend on our drinking water or our food to supply our minerals?
Minerals found in drinking water are known as “ inorganic.”
Minerals found in our food supply are known as “ organic.”

“ It is believed that mineral waters help furnish elements for body metabolism. But there is scientific proof to suggest that many of these minerals are in an inorganic (dead) form While they may the circulation, they cannot be used in the physiological process of building the human cell.. Theses Inorganic minerals only interfere with the delicate and complex biology of the body. They may also overwork the kidneys.
For example, it would be biologically impossible to nourish the body with iron by taking “ iron fillings “ or any other form of inorganic iron. The best way to nourish the body with iron is through fresh and, preferably, raw fruits and vegetables.
With this in mind, we can see that minerals, says: “ The minerals which the human body needs that are in the water are insignificant compared those found in food.”
Dr. Henry A. Schroeder, eminent scientist and world authority on minerals, says: “ The mineral the human body needs that are in the water are insignificant compared to those found in food.
The American Medical Journal states, “ The body’s need for minerals is largely met through food DRINKING WATER.”
Fact:The organic minerals in tap water represent only 1% of the total mineral content of the water. One glass of orange juice contains more beneficial minerals than thirty gallons of untreated tap water.

“What the human body cannot utilize or excrete, it must store, consequently, the inorganic salts (inorganic minerals) are stored and in time take their toll in the form of hardening of the stones within the kidneys, urethras, gall bladder, joints and an etiologic factor in enlargement adipose cell (fat cell). To be one hundred percent healthy, the human body must be free of inorganic minerals.
When pure water enters the human body, it leaves no residue. It is free of all inorganic salts, perfect drink for internal cleanliness and health. Reverse osmosis water is crystal clear with impurity removed, ready for and perfect for human consumption, free from all pollutants including inorganic salts, organic material, bacteria and viruses. No other water excels as fit for human consumption.”

“The minerals in the Natural Waters are inactive. They do not contain enzymes, the essence of Nature has made provision to install life into these mineral elements by means of the development the growth and maturity of plants. In the course of the plant’s growth, the roots collect mineral the earth, convert them into live organic elements and absorb them into the stem, the leaves, the seeds and the flower and fruit.
“It is natural that the use of fresh raw vegetable and fruit juices should furnish the cells and tissues the body with the finest kind and quality of nourishment in the form of ultra-microscopic minerals replete with enzymes.”
We have been told for years about the importance of drinking plenty of water every day, 70% of our body is composed of water: in fact no life could exist on earth without water, but is the water we are now drinking really beneficial to us or harmful.
How does water work in our body? It helps us digest food, maintain proper body temperature, gives our lungs the moisture we need to breathe, provides for the form and function of our body’s 100 trillion cells, it is the primary ingredient in all bodily fluids including blood supply, lymph, saliva, glandular secretions and cerebrospinal fluid, to name a few things water does in the body. Water constitute regulates, flows through, cleanses and helps nourish every single part of your body. But the wrong kind of water with inorganic minerals, chemicals and other contaminants can pollute, clog up and turn to stone in every part of your body.
According to Dr. Norman Walker, everything you eat or drink goes into your stomach and then into 20 to 25 feet of small intestine, from there food which can be assimilated is transferred to the liver for distribution to the rest of your system; while most of what cannot be utilized is passed on as waster into the colon. Liquids pass readily through the microscopic blood vessel in the liquid right into the liver. (This includes inorganic minerals , the most common of which is calcium-lime, a primary ingredient in concrete and cement)
Once it reaches the liver everything is cleared from it except for the hydrogen and oxygen, that water, and this is the only kind of water which the blood and the lymph can use in their work. According to Dr. Walker if a person drinks 2 pints of water a day, this will total 4500 gallons of water passing through his body over a 70 year span. If it is not R/O, Dr. Walker estimates these 4500 will include 200-300 pounds of rock that the body cannot utilize.
Most will be eliminated through excretory channels. But some of this will stay in the body, stiffness in the joints hardening of the arteries kidney stones, gall stones & blockages of arteries, microscopic capillaries and other passage in which liquids flow through our entire body.
What is being added to our water or being found in our water? Chorine-being added to “ poison” the bacteria in our water, if you can smell it, it may inter the intestinal tract to destroy helpful bacteria. (It was used as weapon in WW I). It has been linked to heart disease, senility, and cancers fo the bladder, liver pancreas, colon and urinary tract. Fluoride-one of the most potent poisons known to man. Used in high concentrations as a roach and rat killer and pesticide.
In an update of Paul Bragg’s book the shocking Truth About water, he cites an ABC News study revealing that more than 700 chemicals have been found in our drinking water, and129 of theses chemicals have been cited by the EPA as posing serious health risks. Yet the EPA requires testing for only 14 of theses chemicals.
