Water is the most essential nutrient.

But today it is a toxic tea of 100s of carcinogens...everything from uranium to arsenic to glyphosate to SSRIs.

Here's why you need to stop drinking it & what to drink instead

Nobody should go anywhere near tap water... Don't drink it. Don't shower in it. Don't even look in it.

People assume that just bc it's clear it's okay

But tap water is full of 1000s of chemicals and the most underrated cause of health issues
If you have lingering health issues, skin issues like eczema and acne, fatigue this could be why

Some of these are added to the water by municipalities like fluoride and chlorine. But the bulk majority are from environmental pollutants.

The problem is that there's no rigorous scientific way to determine how much of a carcinogen you should be exposed to.

Some of these chemicals the EPA has a goal of ZERO for, but they allow more because your tap water would be way too expensive if they had to hit zero.
So the EPA just sets standards "low"...but any amount may be too much for many of these toxins.

Here's what's in my water in LA...a county you think would care about health.

But instead it's loaded with 20+ contaminants, 9 of which are well above of EWG recommended guidelines
Let me highlight some contaminants you'll find in tap water:

- Atrazine & glyphosate: There's not one glass of water without some pesticide in it...these have been linked to cancers & fertility issues...frog situation

- Birth control, ssris, xanax

- Arsenic & heavy metals
Chlorine is added to the water to disinfect it.

It is linked to some health issues, but even more of a concern are THMs.

THMs are formed when chlorine reacts with organic matter and have been linked to cancers and fertility issues.

These are very high in LA water.
FLUORIDE...gets a bit more controversial, but studies have linked fluoride consumption to lower IQ in children and lower thyroid levels, as it robs the thyroid of iodine.

If you're not filtering your water, you are ingesting 100s of carcinogens.
Here are the options of what to drink instead


These are availability in many different shapes and sizes...Brita is a popular example

Carbon filters tend to prioritize taste and odor over health

They do a good job with organic compounds but not with others
Carbon filters can remove most of the chlorine & THMs, two of the bigger offenders, some fo the pharma products & pesticides.

Brita, for instance, removes about half the glyphosate, but doesn't remove much of the chromium, nitrates or arsenic.
Berkey does a better job but still has some of the same issues.

If your water is loaded with heavy metals, fluoride, inorganic solids, you need something more.

And like I mentioned above, any amount of some carcinogens is too much.
Additionally, because all of the minerals are removed, the water will be aggressive. Aggressive water leeches from whatever is around it.

According to the EPA distilled water "tends to dissolve substances with which it is in contact. " It can even leech carbon dioxide in the air

Distilled water is usually what goes into bottled water, making it a recipe for disaster when stored in plastic.

This is why this review found that over 90% of waters had microplastics in it.

I am quite uncertain about this option

On one hand, a good natural spring water source is evolutionarily consistent. Spring water is naturally filtered through the earth, vortexed and rich in bicarbonate mineral salts. This is what real water is.
On the other, with acid rain, pollution, rusty pipes, many of these are polluted with compounds far in excess of what we would have been exposed to in nature.

Now studies are revealing that spring waters have some of these toxic carcinogens in them (starkey & topo chico)
I'm sure some spring waters are great, but before relying on a single source I'd want to review all the water quality tests.

With that being said, when I'm on the go or at a restaurant I always opt for still spring

Reverse osmosis is similar to distillation except it also removes chlorine

It also removes up to 98%/99% of the solid contaminants

But it will still leave in some of the acids, synthetic organic chemicals, lower weight industrial pollutants, plasticizers
This is the challenge we all face...there is almost NO GOOD WATER available today.

Tap water is radioactive, fertility destroying bullsh*t and most of the filters are inadequate for the environmental havoc we face.

If you're going with a filter, I think the best option is combining distillation & carbon or reverse osmosis & carbon. This should do a good job filtering out 99.99% of the carcinogenic compounds, pharmaceuticals and THMs.

And just when you thought I couldn't get more controversial...my favorite way to get water these days isn't from drinking water.

It's from juices, coconut water & milk.

Juices, coconut water & milk are around 90% water.
The cow, being the magical creature it is with its multiple stomachs can help to filter and expel environmental toxins like pesticides.

Additionally, fruit juices, coco water and milk are loaded with beneficial minerals & vitamins.
Lastly, something I didn't touch on is structured water / living water. Some people suggest that water in its natural form is structured into gel-like microclusters. Now, whether this has benefits or not, I am not sure. But fruit juices & milk should retain this better than tap
This is the water I will be serving at my citadel.

After going through a reverse osmosis filter, an ionizer, carbon filter and being vortexed through crystal structures, I will add the bicarbonate electrolytes, beef liver and testosterone.

This is how we win.

Fasting increases growth hormone 300%...and that is a TERRIBLE thing...

Growth hormone is carcinogenic...and is now starting to be used as a biomarker for cancer growth.

It is a signal that your body is under major stress.
It would be so much easier for my business to just pander to all your beliefs, but I choose to do this bc I believe you are all hurting yourselves in ignorance…I know I was.

Given how wrong everyone been about strong convicntions in thd past, I suggest re-examining this too

I've told a lot of you to sun your genitals. In this thread I explain why

It's not just a massive FU to modern society...

It also is incredibly important for energy levels & rejuvenating your health

#1 Sunlight improves genital function

The sunlight is more than UV rays, it has red / NIR, full color spectrum

Mitochondria present in every cell need Red / NIR for optimal function.

The more you hide a body part from the sun the weaker it will be.
Red light is necessary for ATP production via cytochrome c oxidase

New research around structured water suggests that the water in your cell can capture energy from infrared light, become more gel like, helping to increase ATP production.

This is called EZ water.

The most important work of Ray Peat is around serotonin: serotonin isn't the happiness hormone.

It is a hormone of stress, hibernation & the primary break on all higher function -- everything that makes us human.
It down-regulates energy production, metabolism and higher cognitive function + creativity to help the organism survive.

If you inject it into docile creatures, they turn into angry zombies focused on their own gain above all else.

It tends to be elevated in serial killers
In the 1960s studies showed that people that had low serotonin and high dopamine, didn't follow orders, questioned norms and were highly self sufficient -- this is what LSD did to "hippies"...

Whereas serotonin does the opposite, making people highly servile and "normal"

Most relationships fail because people enter into them for the wrong reasons: to cure their loneliness, look good to friends, feel more loved, to have more sex...

This isn't a relationship. It is a trade.

When you say, "I love you", you really mean "I am trading you this"...
But transactions like this always end in disappointment.

Real relationships are sacred.

They are the best opportunity for you both to grow into the highest potential of who you can be, free of all your petty concerns and small ideas about yourself, true unconditional love.
If you both agree that this is the purpose of a relationship -- for you both to improve and allow your inner love to pour into the other person -- then that is the ground for something truly special.

When things get tough, you don't breakup -- it's more fuel for growth.

Birth control has been a disaster for women's health.

Usage is associated with:

gut issues

All for what? Preventing pregnancy which can only occur 5 days out of the month...
Yes you read that right.

Most women are not even told that they can only get pregnant 5 days out of each month and this can be managed totally naturally

But instead, they're prescribed birth control like it's skittles. Most women are never even told about the risks of taking it
This is indicative of a problem with society at large...a distrust for the natural rhythms and intuition of our body and a disconnection from the cosmos around us.

Did you know that most women with a healthy cycle menstruate with the moon?

Birth control severs this connection.

The one commonality of pretty much all great philosophy and religion is this: the phenomenal world we see is just the tip of the iceberg, a fraction of True reality

At best, it's temporally true, at worst, it's a complete dream like fabrication
Truth and liberation comes from seeing through this illusion.

Taking the red pill and waking up from the Matrix.

Stepping outside of Truman's world.
But I don't think that liberation is going to come from anything external and physical that changes...

I think it comes entirely from going the other way...

Intensely studying your consciousness and figuring out who you really are.
