Proponents of raw water contend that treatment and filtration strips beneficial nutrients which naturally occur in water and also attest that the fluoride commonly added to tap water is harmful to health. The reality, though, is one that could involve serious illnesses uncommon in modern America.
It's this recommendation for people to collect their own water, that could result in negative health consequences for people who are unaware of the dangers of drinking unfiltered water, according to Jamin Brahmbhatt, a physician at Orlando Health.
In an interview with The New York Times, Mr. Singh said he believes that common drinking water contains "mind-control drugs". "We celebrate this ancient life source that humanity flourished from, since the beginning of our existence", the Live Water website says.

Doug Evans, who said he subsists on an organic, plant-based diet, said he has been drinking raw water for almost two decades now. (Ars Technica reports that the microbiology studies they cite don't support their claims and that "t$3 here is plenty of data showing that fluoride improves dental health, but none showing water-based mind control.")
