Can Babies Drink Tap Water?
In today's blog, we're talking about babies! Can babies drink tap water?
Is it bad for their health? What's inside our tap water anyway?
The human fetus grows in an encouraging environment. Amniotic fluid, produced by the mother, is an alkaline solution that not only protects the baby from the traumas but also helps the distribution of water and nutrients needed for healthy growth.
That’s why a fetus is able to grow eyes, fingers, bones, skin, lungs.
If you were able to test the womb’s fluid, you would get an extremely alkaline result. The fluid is negatively charged and that reduces oxidation and inflammation creating a perfect environment for development.
On the other hand, tap water is positively charged and creates oxidation that causes aging and leads to inflammation which is linked to every single health disease known to man.
See this banana? The change you see is caused by oxidation. This is happening to your body when drinking tap water.
ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential) Test
To prove that the tap water is definitely causing oxidation, we’re going to put it to an ORP meter test. Higher readings indicate that the water is creating oxidation and by that causing inflammation in your body.
As you can see, we’ve got a pretty big number here. Tap water is definitely creating oxidation.
Babies are fragile, especially in the early stages after birth so we should keep them in the alkaline environment as long as we can to ensure healthy development.
In addition to oxidation property, another downside of the tap water is chlorine. Our wastewater systems end up with tons of wastewater that have to be treated. That’s where the chlorine comes into play. Chlorine is a poisonous gas used to kill bacterias and viruses to disinfect the water.
Therefore it’s highly toxic, but not only for the disease-causing pathogens but for humans as well.
It causes diseases like:
Bronchitis and other respiratory diseases
Heart and Circulatory diseases
This next test is going to show us if chlorine is present in our tap water. By putting a few chlorine reagent drops we’re going to find out if the water we’re drinking has been treated by chlorine.
Our water changed the color to yellow which indicates chlorine presence.
But Isn't Chloride Good Since It Kills Pathogens?
Robert G. Wright, founder of the American Anti-Cancer Institute, and the author of the book called “Killing cancer, not people”, says:
“I would never drink tap water unless it was an emergency...The cancer risk among those drinking chlorinated water is 93% higher than those who do not”.
He lost both of his parents to chemotherapy and radiation. As a result, he dedicated his life to helping people prevent getting cancer.
What's Inside My Tap Water?
If you would like to know more about the tap water in your area, visit the EWG Water Database and check what’s in your tap water by simply entering your zip code (the US only).
EWG’s Tap Water Database collects data from nearly 50,000 local utilities in 50 states. Make sure that your tap water doesn't contain contaminants linking to diseases and protect yourself and your family.
Babies are fragile.
In the early years of their life, it is crucial to provide the best environment for safe and healthy development. Exposure to tap water by drinking it and bathing in it is leading to all these different health issues that we’re experiencing.
I don’t recommend exposing babies to tap water in any way.
