The Health Nutty Pick of the Week: GIVEAWAY Part deux!

Do you suffer from digestive problems, heartburn, urinary tract infections, autoimmune disease, high cholesterol, or weight gain? Apparently our drinking water may be linked to these problems (

Doctor Joseph Mercola discusses the "convenience" of tap water, but how it's not necessarily the best for you. Various places have found arsenic, and aluminum in their water.

If you are one of those people that thinks you're safe because you drink bottled water, you might want to hear me out here. Bottled water is no better for you than tap water.

An article from USA Today did a study on what's in bottled water. Here's what they found: "The study's lab tests on 10 brands of bottled water detected 38 chemicals including bacteria, caffeine, the pain reliever acetaminophen, fertilizer, solvents, plastic-making chemicals and the radioactive element strontium. Though some probably came from tap water that some companies use for their bottled water, other contaminants probably leached from plastic bottles, the researchers said.
"In some cases, it appears bottled water is no less polluted than tap water and, at 1,900 times the cost, consumers should expect better," said Jane Houlihan, an environmental engineer who co-authored the study."

Not to mention, you are most likely drinking from a bottle that contains BPA, and if you use these bottles over and over again, there are health risks.  In addition, they're horrible for the environment since many bottles are burned or buried when disposed of.

Did you know that today about one-fifth of the population drinks bottled water exclusively? ( Yikes.

So what's the solution?

Berkey water filtration systems keep the necessary minerals in the water, but remove 99.9% of junk. I'm talkin' chlorine, aluminum, copper, mercury, and more.

 Do you travel much? Go camping in the summers? Hike often? Constantly on the go? Spend a lot of time at the gym?

Sounds like you need a Sport Berkey (pictured above).

Fill this guy up with tap water, river water, or lake will filter it on the spot, and you're good to go. 

Why pay for another bottle of water again?
