Safe Drinking Water
In “Water World” (July/August), we learned that
drinking water may not be as safe as some people
think and asked readers of our blog at
www.energytimes.com how they ensure the safety of their water supply. Here are some responses:
My mother introduced my sister and I to filters. They are cheaper than buying water bottles and create less waste. I attached a filter to my sink faucet and to my showerhead. My sister uses a filtered water pitcher. Right away, I noticed a difference in the quality and taste of my water.
My family and I have enjoyed distilled water, which we make at home. We have a great countertop model and a 12-gallon one for our household. We are extremely healthy; I attribute this to distilled water and eating a healthy diet.
We get our water from our deep well. Our water is clean, safe and has a good taste. (Local agencies provide water testing.) For short trips we carry a thermos of cold water from home.
Regarding your story “Healthy in Hollywood” (June): Kudos to Natalie Portman. It is a rarity in Hollywood and in the world at large to be drug-, alcohol- and smoke-free. She is an example of an independent thinker—one who has a strong sense of self. Ms. Portman is a role model of health and good sense that can’t be easily found anywhere, much less Hollywood!
