I love having crunchy friends because they show me wonderful items like the Big Berkey Water Filter. They teach me so much! The other day we were having the ‘why does fluoride have to be in our water’ conversation. We all went out of our way to avoid it in our toothpaste, but having it in our water was a different story because how do you avoid it? Here is a water filter that takes out fluoride.
Why Is Fluoride Bad?
I need to write a whole other post on this topic because today I just want to concentrate on the Berkey Water Filter itself, but here are some quick facts.
- fluoride is one of the most toxic substances on earth, on par with arsenic and lead
- It has no proven biological use inside the human body (teeth included).
- Approximately 50% of the fluorine ingested, remains and accumulates in the body
- Boiling water for soup, coffee, tea or other drink, only concentrates fluoride
Back to my crunchy friends story. One of my friends was telling us the city offers reverse osmosis stations and she takes her cartons weekly to be filled. But what a pain that is! Wouldn’t it be nice to have fresh drinking/cooking water at home? Most water filters do NOT take out fluoride. I actually didn’t know that any did…until my friend says ‘yes I want a Berkey Water Filter!’
I was introduced and amazed…
Big Berkey Water Filter
Let’s talk about the Berkey now!!
The black berkey elements that come standard in this system purify both treated water and untreated raw water from such sources as remote lakes, streams, stagnant ponds and water supplies in foreign countries, where regulations may be substandard at best.
~ if there is an emergency and no water was available…use this filter in any outdoor water source and be safe! Camping? Awesome way to use it!
Berkey water filters assemble in minutes without tools, electricity, water pressure, or plumbing.
~ no pipes need to be nearby, no outlets to plug-in. Carry it wherever you want! The top chamber nestles in the bottom half for storage and travel.
This system is so powerful it can remove food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other system can duplicate this performance.
You NEED a water filter that takes out fluoride!
Right now I have ours sitting at the edge of the counter. This is my Water Boy, as he calls himself, because he honestly loves drinking water from this filter and I am so happy that he is drinking more than he ever has. It tastes so good!
I refill through the top with my kitchen sink sprayer and it filters down until we can access with the sprout. So simple!
Of course we use it to drink, but also for cooking and one of these days to make ice cubes too!
I just feel more SAFE having a Big Berkey Water Filter in the house and definitely more HEALTHY!
