Is it safe to use filtered water from A Brita filter to make babies formula? I would boil It aswell

Is it safe to use filtered water from A Brita filter to make babies formula? I would boil It aswell

Why either?: If you have an approved city water supply & drink from the tap there is no reason to do anything special with formula. Boiling would be an issue if you are on private well water & are unsure of the contaminant level. Filtering would also be a good idea. Six decades ago boiling was a common practice with moms who made their own formula from cow milk, but it was done to make it digestible. ...Read more

Are those filtered water bottles safe?

Are those filtered water bottles safe?

Yes but...: Yes, they are safe. Just make sure you're following the manufacturer's recommendations regarding what water can be filtered (swamp water can only be cleaned so much) and that you're replacing the filter or the bottle on schedule. Using a bottle long after the expiration does away with the safety features. ...Read more

My local sprouts growers filtered the water through rock and soil and then got salmonella and board of health citation. What is safe?

Salmonella: Salmonella is an organism transmitted by the fecal/oral route. Either the soil was contaminated with feces, or one of the handlers had salmonella in their GI tract and was not using appropriate sanitary techniques. Actually very little in life is completely safe. Minimize risks and be careful. Stay well. ...Read more

Is organic food worth the price? What about filtered water? Just hype?

Is organic food worth the price? What about filtered water? Just hype?

Maybe: Organic food, if truly organic (no pesticides, no fertilizers, compost only for the soil) may have slightly less toxins but regulation is poor in this arena and some organic foods have higher bacterial counts and debris like insect body parts, etc. Most municipal water is pure while bottled water is not standardized and probably is municipal water anyway. Filtering just removes solids, not toxins. ...Read more

Is it more healthy to drink filtered water rather than nature spring water with minerals?

Filtered water: Drinking filtered water is not a bad idea as most tap water contains teeth-strengthening fluoride. Natural spring water with minerals drinking directly might be ok, but not necessarily healthier. Bottled water, however, is controversial as most water bottles are unfortunately not recycled, resulting in billions of water bottles clogging landfills each year, which cannot be easily decomposed. ...Read more

What is " triple filtered water" in the ingredients label? Does anyone know? Thanks.

Marketing hokum: P. T. Barnum said you would never get poor on under estimating the gullibility of the American public. Above is another example of same. A good water filtration system will purify the drinking water for you. That that particular system uses three sets of filters presumably of different sizes to do the job is fine. It is mainly marketing though. They do what's necessary. ...Read more
