Ban on RO systems to continue in Delhi, Supreme Court declines to stay NGT order


Well-known member
Reverse Osmosis sucks away all minerals from water and drinking such water without minerals is extremely bad for health. Indian National Green Tribunal has banned RO systems which leave less than 500 Total Dissolved Solids per litre.RO is banned in some other countries as well. Those who regularly use RO should consider switching to other water purification systems.

It is also true that nonRO has plastic and other contaminants. There is no fool proof system in nature. If the water is extracted from the wells with lime and other minerals they may harm. Pervasive plastic can not be removed in any other way. Supreme court guys are lawyers and not scientist with extensive research experience. People have to make their own judgment based on their intelligence. Your health is your responsibility. Science does not give ultimate advise rather progressively improves its findings. There was a time river water was pure, not any more. No chemical fertilizers were used in historical time to contaminate the ground water, but fertilizer over use almost always produces contaminated water.

Many people struggle to know which type of water is the best because the market is full of so many different types. Each one claims to have some wildly impressive additional health benefits. However, which of these claims are true and which ones are simply no more than clever advertisers stretching the truth to sell more products?

This article will help you identify the main types of water available today and tell you what the real health benefits are based on scientific evidence and research data.

By the end of this article you will be better informed and have a good idea of which water you think is best for your specific needs.


  1. Tap water
  2. Bottled water
  3. Distilled water
  4. Hydrogen water
  5. Alkaline water
  6. Boiled water
  7. Which is the best water to drink?

Which is the best water to drink?​

The healthiest type of water is technically hydrogen water because of the potential health benefits of the antioxidants it contains.

However, the truth is that even the healthiest type of water can only ever have minor health benefits. Hydrogen water and any other type of water on this list will not be able to repair an unhealthy diet or lifestyle.

The biggest health benefits from hydration come from drinking water itself regardless of what type of water it is. The truth is that any type of water is good for you so long as it is clean and free of impurities.
The bottom line is that you should consider all the different “healthy” types of water on the market as ‘life enhancers’. Something that can mildly improve a lifestyle and diet that is already very healthy but not fix one that is not.

When no water is available, arguments do not help. Drink what you can. An elderly man once told me that he was coming with about 40 peoples on migration during the world war from Burma. He asked a villager for advice. The village elder had told him watch the monkeys, eat what they eat and drink what they drink. But about 30 people ignored saying they were thirsty and died due to various diseases. So, do we have choice. We are polluting all our water resources - dumping plastic into tanks and lakes, garlands and dirty cloths, garbage, pouring and dumping expired medicine and sewage on the rivers ( no cleaning can remove the contaminant). Add this to the industrial pollutants dumped due to corruption. The guys who take bribe do not realize that his wards will also die due to pollution! We are Hindu, we worship rivers as mothers are just slogans for the majority but cry foul when things go wrong. We want Rama Rajaya yet we live like demons. The old method three pots one with charcoal, one with sand and the top one to pour water and the proper collection might be helpful. Activated charcoal of burnt coconut shells are the best.
