Myth 1: Boiling tap water makes it safe to drink

Today's tap water "town water" is treated with chemicals such as chlorine and fluoride and therefore the process of boiling the water to kill micro-organisms is no longer required. The real threat to your health are the added carcinogenic chemicals , as well as heavy metals and asbestos picked up from corroding/decaying metal and concrete pipes. There is also the new threat create by humans - micro plastics. Boiling tap water further exacerbates the situation, as it causes pure water to be evaporated, while leaving behind dissolved solids such as heavy metals. As pure water has been lost, the heavy metals are now even more concentrated than before. This is why we filter water, otherwise your internal organs will be doing it for you.
