Doctors say “raw water” trend could make you sick

(CBS 58) – Doctors are warning that drinking “raw water,” which sells for up to $60 a gallon, could make you sick.

The water is untreated and companies claim it’s free of industrial toxins and rich in health microbes. The CDC says water is filtered for a reason and warn untreated water could contain bacteria, viruses, and parasites, no matter how clean it looks.

Experts say raw water may contain beneficial minerals, but a healthy diet can provide the same without the added risk.
