|Survival Nutrition by Mike Adams – Chapter Four
|Welcome to Survival Nutrition Chapter 4.
This is about water. You might think at first, maybe it’s a little strange to have a section on water in a book on Survival Nutrition. But, of course, water goes right along with it because if you don’t have clean water and you don’t have a source of water, you’ll die from dehydration. You need water to make food, and you need water to digest food. They actually do go hand in hand.
We’re going to talk about a couple of things here. Number one, water sources, including rainwater collection, well water and groundwater that you can harvest. We’ll talk about water filtration. We’ll also talk about water collection, some different ways that you can gather it, and even a few ideas about how to carry or distribute it.
I run a forensic food laboratory as you know, CWCLabs.com. We do a lot of water testing there. In fact, water’s the easiest thing to test on scientific instruments. We test for heavy metals. We test for glyphosate. We test for other chemicals, including PFAS, from time to time, as well as various pesticides and herbicides.
Here’s what I can tell you as a very experienced scientist who has tested lots and lots of water. In fact, we’ve taken the ERA water proficiency testing for many, many years. In addition to our ISO accreditation, we also qualify using these ERA tests. They send us a water sample with unknown, specific quantities of different toxic elements and we have to measure that and send them back the test results. Then they tell us if we pass or fail. Of course, we always pass. We actually have a lot of experience testing water.
The cleanest water that you will ever get, by far, is rainwater, including rainwater that comes off a roof. Even if it comes off a roof that’s not necessarily perfectly clean, that rainwater is going to be much cleaner than any water that you get from the ground, especially from under the ground.
Underground water, i.e., well water, is the dirtiest water. This is not necessarily intuitive to a lot of people. Some people think that, well, rainwater must be dirtier because the air is polluted and groundwater must be clean because the dirt and the ground and the sand and the clay are filtering out everything. By the time it gets 600 feet underneath in the aquifer, it must be clean. That’s what a lot of people think. But no, it’s actually the opposite.
Rainwater is very, very clean because it turns out that when rain, which is distilled ocean water, falls through the air, it doesn’t actually pick up much stuff at all, hardly anything. It’s not like the sky is so dirty that it’s raining mud or something. Rainwater is very clean, but well water is heavily polluted.
The reason is because a lot of the toxic runoff from agriculture, including pesticides and herbicides, ends up in the aquifers. The same thing happens with city and industrial waste, biosludge and biosolids, which include heavy metals, pharmaceutical runoff, birth control p
