One of the most difficult tasks in the treatment and preparation of drinking water involves the sterilisation of surface water and immature (juvenile) groundwater which endanger health and are unsuitable for drinking purposes. As a rule this water is taken from rivers, lakes and reservoirs or, where these sources are unavailable, is pumped up from deep wells and rendered (theoretically) drinkable with the use of chemical additives. All those forced to live in cities are well acquainted with the bad taste of mechanically filtered water, water which is contaminated by micro-organic matter, artificially polluted by chlorine, irradiation or other sterilising agents and disinfected by chemical compounds and other ingredients. What are not known, however, are the consequences ensuing from this.
While the dreadful consequences accruing from the continual consumption of sterilised drinking water may not be clear to water supply engineers, doctors cannot claim to be unaware of the causes of the sickness appearing everywhere. Their responsibility is all the greater since they are the ones who are supposed to keep the organic formation of the body and its various stages of development under constant observation and study. In view of the fact that contemporary doctors must also acquire certain preliminary technical knowledge and an understanding of various basic chemical and physical principles before beginning their medical studies (which to a large extent will actually rob them of their connection with reality), practising physicians should at least understand what effect the continuous consumption of sterilised water will have on the human body and whether the continued use of this method of sterilisation should still be permitted.
Those doctors who dedicate their whole lives to cancer research and are adequately supported financially in their endeavours should first of all ask themselves the question: how does such bacterial life evolve in the human body or in any other organically-constituted body? It is not sufficient merely to record the existing facts and to try to eliminate the unwelcome life-forms that already exist. The very fact that the development of bacteria is enhanced in water—water left standing for long periods, flowing slowly in the sunlight or in badly-enclosed, open wells—must point to certain correlations which urgently need to be researched, in order to put an end to the danger of disease associated with them. If this path has not yet been trodden, it is because our practising physicians themselves have already lost touch with Nature.
In the final analysis, all attempts to purify drinking water are directed towards creating conditions unfavourable to the bacterial life that evolves in it under certain conditions, in the hope of eradicating it. If the water has been rendered ‘hygienically impeccable’ in such manner, then, as a rule, one is entirely satisfied with it and believes that enough has been done. Quite apart from any other associated hazards—for example, residual micro-organic matter unpurged by present systems of sterilisation—it never enters anyones head that certain material energies will also be denied to people who regularly consume sterilised water, sterilised milk or other sterilised foods. This deficiency will lead to a decrease in their mental, physical and sexual potency and will inevitably increase the health risks to their weakened bodies. After a lengthy time of constantly consuming water treated in this way, the blood will be systematically destroyed. This enfeeblement leaves the door wide open to the entry of disease.
