Should You Drink Tap Water?

In today's review, we’re gonna talk about tap water. Should you drink tap water? 

The answer is yes. But it’s really not that simple. 

Yes, we should be drinking tap water but not the way that we're getting it.

The main reason why is that it's oxidizing. 


We are born in an alkaline environment. And this environment helps us develop fast and safe. We are healthy and everything goes well. Kinda like this banana:

However, over the time, we start exposing ourselves to different foods, drinks, and outside factors that are oxidizing. And oxidation is essentially making us rust and age faster.

Just as that beautiful fresh banana turned into discolored and not so appetizing fruit, we go through the same process. 

And responsible for our decline are atoms and molecules called free radicals.

Free radicals are found everywhere, in the food we eat, the water we drink, the technology we use, even in the air we breathe. 

They are create aging, rust, and inflammation in the body causing sickness and every disease known to man.

Luckily, we know how to fight free radicals. Antioxidants are substances that prevent damage to our cells and help neutralize the bad effect of free radicals. They are mostly found in fruity and vegetables, but also in the water that we are drinking!

And how about our tap-water? Does it contain antioxidants?

Well, let’s do a test and see if our water is oxidizing, thus making us sicker, or maybe it’s fighting oxidation.

We’re going to use an ORP meter.

ORP Test

ORP, or Oxidative reduction potential basically shows the water’s ability or inability to reduce oxidation. Any number that is positive means that the water is creating oxidation in your body, which means is leading to aging, sickness, and diseases.

The negative number shows the water’s potential to reduce oxidation, thus stop aging, protect you from sickness, and help your organism fight diseases.

That's super high number and the biggest reason why we shouldn’t consume tap water.

Unfortunately, that’s not the only bad and harmful property of tap water. 

Tap water ends up polluted with hundreds of chemicals from our bathrooms, medications and sewers. Of course, we have to treat it somehow to make it drinkable again. So we purify it in treatment facilities by adding lye and chlorine. 


Chlorine is a poisonous gas used to kill bacteria 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:

  • Cancer

  • Skin issues

  • Bronchitis and other respiratory diseases

  • Heart and Circulatory diseases

But just to prove the point, we’re going to use chlorine drops to see if our tap water is really treated.

If the water changes color, that’s a pretty good sign that our water contains chlorine.

As you can see, our tap water changed color, which means that it contains chlorine.

If you experience stomach issues, or skin conditions like cracking, peeling and bleeding, there’s a pretty good chance that chlorine is responsible for your troubles.

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 regular tap water unless it was an emergency. The evidence of tap water toxicity is overwhelming and readily available for your perusal on the internet. Go see for yourself. The cancer risk among those drinking chlorinated water is 93% higher than those who do not." 

Robert lost his parents to chemotherapy and radiation so he started doing the research, to try to find effective ways of beating cancer without going through chemotherapy and radiation.

We consume this water, we shower in it, so at least what we can do is to check what exactly are we dealing with. To find out 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 (US only).


Should we drink tap water? Not if it's coming straight from the source but if we find a way to filter it, if we have a way of making it antioxidant, absolutely. 

And guess what? 

There is a way.

I made a report about the five properties every healthy water has. I personally use these tools in my life right now!
