Bottled mineral water

Origin

Bottled mineral water comes from rain, snow, rivers or groundwater. It can be levitic (i.e. taped after spouting from the source, this is very rare) or taped by pumping (majority of the cases). It is then packed and marketed

Advantages

    • « Pure » and drinkable water
    • Choice adapted to every one’s taste
    • Convenient packaging

Disadvantages

      • Environmental pollution of the plastic bottles (see the damage caused to nature by the 6th continent)
      • Mineral water is 125 times more expensive than tap water (€ 0,5/L >< € 0,004/L)
      • Stagnating water :
        • If drawn up by pumping, this destroys the biological stability of water (water from a source springs naturally out by the force of its intrinsic energy – > this happens only when it is mature). This lack of levitic energy is then compensated by gas (carbonic acid (H2CO3) or ozone
        • water stagnates in the bottles, as a result the minerals flocculate (agglomerate to form larger particles) in a few hours and become less digestible
        • Moreover while stagnating, water oxidizes and oxidation causes the ageing of the cells
      • Water that is often too mineralized. The goal of water is not only to bring nutrients but also to allow their digestion and the evacuation of the non-digestible elements. 55% to 75% of the inorganic minerals are not digestible by the body (overload to the kidneys with risk of kidney stones development…). The minerals must be provided in priority by vegetables and fruits (= organic minerals). Like Jacques Collin says, “water is good for what it carries off and not for what it brings”! On this subject see below the comparative table of 30 mineral waters mostly consumed in Belgium

    • Mineral water is often too alkaline and oxidized. This will cause diseases in the future! This water does not have the right electric properties to fulfill its metabolic role!
    • This water is consumed only as drinking water, without being used for cooking (soups), coffee, tea or for baths/showers,…
    • Wastage of the drinkable water resources: to produce 1 liter of bottled mineral water one needs 3 liters of water; to pack and transport a bottle of water one needs 30 liters of additional water (ecological footprint!)
