Water, our most precious gift.

The surface of the world is about 70% water.

The body of a human is around 60% water.

Water quality is evidently important for good health. As a nutritionist and live blood analyst, when I see a guest in poor health, I invariably suggest that the ‘water’, the interstitial fluids, the blood, the lymph and so on, should be improved.

Although we are lucky enough to have clean drinking water in this country our water quality is not perfect.

According to the U.S. Council of Environmental Quality, the cancer risk to people who drink chlorinated water is 93 percent higher than among those whose water does not contain chlorine.

If you live in an area where the water is fluoridated, you should know that according to the World Health Organization (WHO), there is no discernible difference in tooth decay between developed countries that fluoridate their water and those that do not.

Swallowing fluoride provides little benefit to teeth but swallowing fluoride affects many tissues in the body besides teeth. There are over 34 human studies and 100 animal studies linking fluoride to brain damage, including lower IQ in children, and studies have shown that fluoride toxicity can lead to a wide variety of health problems, including: thyroid disease, arthritis and dementia. It can affect your bones, brain, thyroid gland, pineal gland and even your blood sugar levels.

At The Raw Retreat we use a gravity filter for all our water. The system gives effective filtration performance across a wide range of potentially harmful contaminants including pathogenic bacteria, parasites, sediment and chemicals, including chlorine. Water in Cornwall UK is not fluoridated.
