Are there more minerals in the tap water than there is in pure water?
There are two types of minerals, organic and inorganic. The only minerals the body can utilize are the organic minerals. All the others are foreign minerals and must be disposed of or eliminated. Water, as a carrier of minerals, is fine for a plant but not the human body. Plants are able to convert inorganic minerals to organic minerals, unlike the body that lacks this ability. By consuming hard water saturated with calcium, magnesium, iron, copper and silicon, the body is unable to assimilate nutrients efficiently. So they end up in the joints as arthritis, in the intestinal walls as constipation, and along the arteries causing them to harden. The kidneys and liver roll up the mineral deposits into little stones until they get too large and need to be removed. Sometimes the kidneys become so clogged with minerals that a kidney transplant is necessary. Even if human tissue suddenly developed the ability to absorb inorganic minerals from tap water, it would take an enormous amount of tap water to supply the bare minimal mineral quantities for proper life functions. Are there more minerals in tap water? The answer is yes. However, they are of no benefit to the human body.
