The benefits of growing algae in your water filter

One of the factors that’s often overlooked in our efforts to replicate the health of non-industrial cultures is water quality. Traditional cultures don’t drink sterilized, chlorinated, fluoridated tap water. They drink from natural flowing streams and lakes, complete with their natural minerals, and… algae.

So, as Whole Health Source suggests, leave your water filter in the sun so it’ll produce a healthy batch of vitamin-packed algae for you in every glass of water. And you can make your own biofuel!

  1. Hi Bob! Is this traditional cultures really safe? I love water and I would love to drink from the nature if the water is safe to drink of course. How can you know if the water flowing in streams and lakes is safe to drink?
