    Could you use water collected from a dehumidifier and then boiled?

     
    1. Marjory Wildcraft

      Marget I purified the water from our swimming pool. The water was like, brown, dirty, teeming with things living in it… You know way past the end of the swimming season and it has deteriorated into a yucky swamp? LOL Yup, I got that water cleaned and drank it. Tasted a bit flat, but was otherwise good to drink.

       
  2. Sharon Porter

    Hi Margaret – yes you can use the condensate from a dehumidifier. Pretty much ANY type of water can be used in the distillation process!

    Excellent presentation. It is amazing how many people in this time in history are unaware of how the basic things in nature work. I guess they were all asleep in science class. Distilling is best because it is the natural progression of things, it is in the original design. Thank you for pointing out how very important this issue is.

    I am not see any other comments posted at the time I am now posting.
    While the presentation was delivered in a clear, elementary, easy to understand, and logical way, I saw several red flags in that there were major factors affecting water quality that were not mentioned at all.
    I realized early on in the presentation that he was selling water stills for his family that is the manufacturer of the brand of water stills he sells.

    I had to go to his website, MyDrinkingWater.com to see what kind of stills he was selling. There was one that does not require electricity to operate and trying to figure out the price of that particular still, the Survival Still, was hidden in the typical way that online promotions of such products is done. I had to go to the page that asked for my zip code to determine what postage charge would be that they are for a limited time going to give me as a “free gift” with my purchase. There I saw the price of $279. It is a small stainless steel item that you connect your own fire burning set-up underneath and your own big pot on top of it. So the price for what you get is very high.

    Again, important information was omitted from his presentation. I know a little about water fluoridation and he greatly underplayed flouride and what it does. Professer Roger Masters and a Rutgers, I think, chemistry professor have published much on this subject and fluoride causes much more leaching of lead into the water of mainly people of lower socioeconomic status. This is what causes several intelligence and behavioral deficits that land these poor children in special education classes and very often in prison.

    I guess the main reason I was turned off with this guy’s “altruistic” desire to educate people about what to do in water emergencies is his first few sentences that stressed the world’s overpopulation problem. The people who are running our world have as a goal of greatly reducing world population and they have been increasing successful in that goal.

    P.S.
    I hope this comment gets posted. I rated this presentation as second to lowest because it did contain some factual information.

     
    1. Jim A.

      Jeannon,

      Howdy. I don’t make comments in these type of formats because there usually are too many to be noticed and there is almost always someone you can be sure who is going to be negative towards something you say no matter in how much good faith you have said your comment. This place is quite different in the comment areas. I have been coming here since day one. It amazes me how “Together” everyone else even when leaving a comment such as yours is. There really is only one thing you said at the end that made me decide to comment to you at all. It is your rating of our speaker, Glen. I believe your rating should be one notch higher because by your own reasoning, you left out one part of his presentation that should have been part of your overall rating. You left out all the hard work that went into him being here at all, all the hard work that The Grow Network took to also make sure that whatever he was presenting, that it would be done in a diplomatic waym and the fact that he got you to expand your thinking for today or else you could not have presented us with all that you have with so much detail involved. Therefore I must request that you change your rating since in your argument here, you have shown to be a person who can actually be rational in your facts and opinions of an issue. I have not tried to change any of my ratings since they might not be willing to change back after doing a changeover once, which is different than the THUMBS UP or DOWN on each of our comments. They can be changed.

      Talking about your rating, I gave you a thumbs up for the same reason I suggest would be more proper if you re-think your reasoning for giving Glen such a low rating. I gave you a thumbs up because you spent the time to think about what you said and present it in a logical structure. You also took the time to find and leave a link to an article about the population. I feel your effort in all of this is deservant of being recognized in the positive no matter what you are saying about how the presentation was done or the information in it.

      As far as it seeming as though this a sales pitch more than just general information whether you agree with that information or not, is more of the larger picture that you have not taken into consideration and my own rationalization as to why if you can, please give a notch up on your rating. Selling something in a format of many types nowadays it is standard not to pay the guest, but rather if there is a book, for example, that will be promoted as well as the person’s website. It is how it is done nowadays. In this presenter’s case, it is not a pair of lady’s stockings that being presented. Instead, it is of the nature of the presentation so what if it is maybe in another area that can be found put out by someone else? The entire presentation is not nearly as “bad” as what we are bombarded with generally on a weekend late night on half the radio shows around the country that is called INFOMERCIALS. If you are no fully aware of them, then you have a learning curve to help understand that in your own growth. As far as saying that the information might be not accurate? I doubt that he would have gotten to even make the video to present to us if it really were discovered upon investigation beforehand by the film (or video) maker.

      You did not take into consideration who contacted this and all the other presentators to do what we all have been blessed with, each maybe on similar subjects, but being done in different ways with slightly different information. Some have products they created and feel for different reasons that it will not harm the overall presentation. I doubt very much that The Grow Network, Marjory primarily, would allow just anyone on any of its presentations without doing some form of investigation of the party, person, or company before it got this far for all of us to be presented with. Marjory is no fly-by-night person nor is The Grow Network. Heck, I knew nothing about her or this place until I heard Marjory interviewed by a radio show and host I know well enough would never allow any person on unless that person had integrity that was confirmed first. Yes, Coast-to-Coast, George Noory, has not just had Marjory on once, but multiple times over multiple years. So even if I were skeptical of her by not knowing her, which actually I was, I took into consideration by where she was being referenced from. It has not been long, but just long enough before this summit started for me to realize that my first impression, although might have been factual in any complaint I had, I had to remind myself that George Noory had promoted her so maybe I should “walk in her moccasins” a bit before continuing on with any negative thing I might have “smartly” come up with and brought to their attention. Now if that were to happen, I would only do it as feedback, not a complaint, and maybe even ask why it is being done in such and such a way.

      I have no idea if our comments are sent to the original one that is being replied to here since we have to give an e-mail address to put up a comment. If it does, I would appreciate you putting your reply, if any, under mine even though I have arranged to be in each day’s presenter’s pages just to read as many comments as I can.

      Take care, and if this fits you then…….

      1. Carmen I Ortiz

        Sorry, Jim A. but there is a saying: “The road to hell is paved with good intentions.” That includes any presenter with good intentions, IF what they are saying is not correct and could be harmful to others. This is NOT the place to be censuring anyone (or being told by the host how the person is such a good person so we should keep quiet, in a separate email). This is the place to be making sure that presentations that contain negative aspects, get called out for the benefit of others.

         
        1. Jim A.

          How do you do Carmen,

          I have a way of creating long letters. Let me see if I can be as short with you as you managed to be so concise with me.

          It is an interesting few details you bring up. I want to stay with one thing, the “quiet” separate letter part. Hearing you out, let us say that you are entirely correct in just plain factual observation. Therefore since you, yourself, have come out here to mention your observation, you just got a laugh from me or maybe I should specify. I am NOT laughing AT you, but you really confirmed something that really threw me off also when I got that letter since we have received so many, that one should not have had a particular subconscious influence on me as it did upon opening it. Therefore I can see it did the same to you and I am in my mind sitting beside you and having a good laugh together over the one following point I will now say.

          You have just confirmed how upgraded this website is or the e-mail application is. The time to set up somethings nowadays might be in a program somewhere to accomplish much, but it still takes a real life supporting human being to get and keep it all going and constantly working to get it upgraded, as this one is.

          Oh. I am referring that I know you were shocked when you opened and then read that letter from Marjory, not really because of what she said in and by itself, but it was her greeting. Yes, her e-mail program is so upgraded, so sophisticated, that each of us receives her e-mails with our names in the greeting. She has made sure that we all feel like we are individuals and deserve more than just the more simpler impersonal standard “Hello” or “Hi” or “Greetings” or something like that.

          Instead the first thing that caught your eye was her usual greeting TO YOU, but when you read what she had to say, that is when that greeting subconsciously kicked in. Even for a fiftieth of a second, your brain gave you a shock and it stayed throughout the entire reading of it right up to at least when you left me your comment here.

          So that is why I just in my head sat down with you and we each had a good laugh over understanding what just happened. No matter if what you are saying now has all the merit in the world, you just helped the entire Grow Network community see the proof how just being alittle more personal than the next guy really can influence how another will react.

          Therefore of course you are getting a THUMBS up on that one. Stay around a bit. You have some interesting perspective on things around you. Tnx.

          Yours,
          Jim
          June 19, 2017/Monday

          P.S. Don’t want to sit around and have that laugh? How about taking a ride across country on old Rt. 66 instead enjoying all the crops and farm animals along with the breeze of fresh air streaming past us? Depending upon your age will of course determine if you catch the “Take it My Way, Take the Highway” trip or not–haha.

          P.P.S. This is me being short, by the way 😉

           
      2. Marjory Wildcraft

        Jim thank you for your comment(s).

        Yes, we do carefully screen who gets to present.

        Yes, these presentations take a lot of time and effort.

        I am very careful that the presentations are mostly content rich as as accurate as we can be (TGN staff are not complete experts on everything so we do our best).

        And the preseenters do need to be compensated. So TGN allows a bit of promotion of books, products, etc. All of our presenters are passionate changemakers and I very much like to help support them by helping promote them. If you notice we do keep it to a minimum.

        Hey, I am so glad you are George Noory fan! I love Coast 2 Coast AM. I wish I had a good alien contact adventure… but the aliens haven’t come my way (yet). LOL! George does do a good job.

         
        1. Jim A.

          Marjory,

          Two “short” things for you.

          First, you are welcome.

          Second about George Noory. It is interesting that you bring that show up. I go way back to before Art Bell even became worldwide into our counteropart E.T.’s, but when he became bigger, if not for him, our radio technology nor our ability to do internet streaming would be to where it is today. He loved that field and he became so big so quickly because he got his listening audience to work with him giving everyone who was listening feedback as to how his signals were getting out. They became individualized more than just a 2 minutes call in. They became part of the greater good that was being created right at that moment and that also allowed some to bring in their own expertise as well as those who might have wanted to plug where they could be found (i.e. advertising maybe a book, as rare as any call-in would ever do that).

          Then years later he left. It took about two year for Premiere (or Channel) to come up with a name for the show and to get a permanent host. Finally the host chosen was George Noory. Coast-to-Coast had lost appoximately 25% of it stations around the world and George was forced to attempt to get them back. Of course now he just finally broke all records of radio stations that hold him dear around the globe even if it too something like 14 years to do it.

          Well, back then, I was no different in approaching strangers in cyberland than I am now. What I said about my initial belief about coming to your Grow Network I also started to accuse George of. Back then he gave out his personal e-mail address and I used to ask him questions about the show, just like I would and did about your website. At one point he only knew who I was because I called him a liar and like with some people here, started to give him “facts” as to how he was lying.

          He always answered me personally and quickly back. One day he said something to me that made me realize that although my complaints might have had legitimacy to them, I was being too critical and not slowing down enough to see the bigger picture, what was going on behind his microphone, his studio, working with other people and of course the big transition of what everyone there had to put up with because when Art Bell left, there was a sort of rebellion against Premiere since they had finally managed to buy out Art Bell before he retired.

          I could keep going on bringing up more details and facts, but I think you get my point. I also did then just what I have asked not to be so quick to not realize among your attentive viewers and commenters here.

          You see, although Carmen above us, is making sense in complaining about your mass letter about the speakers, he/she did not take one thing into consideration of the bigger picture. What you sent out WAS IN FACT OUT HERE IN PUBLIC, but with a twist on that in his/her favor. Still, the one bigger aspect of that comment is that everyone here with maybe a very few who slipped through the crack, ALL GET YOUR LETTERS. We all had to sign up to be here. It is called REGISTERING. So although we might have our own comments between each other and the speakers that can only be done in the confines of these comment areas, what you send out reaches all of us. How you did it could not have gotten done physically out here. So not only did you get your point out through that mass mailing that WE ALL INVOLVED OUT HERE GET, but it was in rich text with graphics galore, not just plain one size text.

          Now I think I see a triangular light coming out from some shadow that looks like a man. I better run and hide in maybe (your) cornfield–haha.

      I don’t think the fluoride or the pipes from which the lead is leached take into account the socioeconomic status of those who end up drinking the water.

      I didn’t know that Mr. Meder sells distillers from anything he said, which I might add is rather different from at least one other presentation that came off as at least 50% sales pitch (one to which I had greatly looked forward). Maybe I’m just not cynical enough but I would suggest perhaps Mr. Meder sells distillers because he cares about people’s health and wants to provide a quality product that works to improve their health.

      Thank you for your thoughts, I will give them consideration. In return I ask that you consider giving strangers the benefit of the doubt.

       
      1. Jeannon

        “I don’t think the fluoride or the pipes from which the lead is leached take into account the socioeconomic status of those who end up drinking the water. ”

        Two factors that make lead more prevalent in the drinking water of poor people:

        1. Poor people tend to have housing that is near older industrial areas where there are big plants of various kinds putting out pollutants into the ground.

        2. Poor people tend not to live in newer housing developments where there is modern pipes and plumbing, not the old lead pipes in the older residential parts of towns.

        It is the hydrofluosilicic acid that is usually part of the municipal fluoridation procedure that is the element that makes the lead more readily leeched from the pipes.

        Also would mention that children playing in the yard and dirt outside that is near a polluting industrial plant will absorb some of the dangerous toxins right into their skin while playing, so it is not only via the old pipes.

        That is the way I understand it but I am sure the connections can be better explained by the professors mentioned, who may have some videos or audio interviews archived online.

        P.S. This may provide a scientific partial explanation of the high percentage of lower socioeconomic status people who populate special education classes as well as prisons.

        I did not mean to get off on the fluoride tangent. There were many other extremely important relevant facts and data that were omitted from this presentation.

        I have no problem with anyone trying to sell their product. I just do not like been slyly deceived about the fact that something is for sale and the manner in which we have to try to learn in detail about the product.

        I think Margory Wildcraft has been consistently up-front about her product from the beginning and I applaud this very helpful set of presentations and I think it would be wise for everyone to consider buying the entire set of videos to have in their “arsenal” in trying to live more self-sustaining in their lives.

         
        1. Molly

          I’m poor, according to the government standards. I don’t live near either of those kinds of places. Most poor people who live in the country probably don’t though, so maybe that’s more of an urban issue.

          I’m anti-fluoride myself so my kids have never had it. Didn’t keep the autism away, though my daughter has been exposed to all the same environmental factors as her brothers were and are and she’s perfectly neuro-typical. Go figure.

          I’ve also sat through thinly-veiled sales pitches, which this was not.

          But I thank you for the extra information which I did find interesting. I just disagree with your assessment of Mr. Simons’ presentation and motives.

           
    3. Cindy

      Jeanon,

      Thank you for taking taking time to watch the presentatino and post your comment. I’m sorry you did not appreciate the presentation. The goal was to educate people about the link between water and health. Unfortunately, it was impossible to cover every aspect of water contamination and purification in depth in one class. Flouride is a very serious issue. Flouride can cause bone loss and damage fertility. Please read this article to learn more: https://myaquanui.com/2014/06/17/fluoride-the-aging-factor/

      In terms of the Survival Still, this is a product we are very proud of. It is designed to give families an immediate way to purify drinking water in an emergency. It is made in the USA of high quality stainless steel and is designed to produce high-purity drinking water as long as your family needs it. Our goal has always been to educate people and to provide products they can depend on. That said, people can make their own water distillers in emergency situations. The Red Cross provides simple instructions for doing so. At the very least, make sure you know about the dangers of water contaminatin and how to protect your family. Then choose a product that fits your budget. The Survival Still is designed to prevent accidental cross contamination and to give people peace of mind that they can take it right out of the box and use it.

       
      1. Clayton Douglas

        Sorry for the thumbs down… but you are sorely deceived or you are hiding the serious truth about this products, so rather than repeating my previous post, for the sake of time I’m copying it.
        The Survival still has more warnings or precautions than it does directions in their accompanying instruction sheet… If they were honest, they would add this info to their sales pitch…
        I need to warn you about this product I purchased 4 years ago from the inventor. I bought this so-called distiller for approximately $279 which was advertised as being a non-electric distiller designed to distill polluted water for drinking in a disaster or emergency. At the time, I had a fairly good idea how distilled water is produced from being around a shipboard distillation plant in the Navy. Simply put, polluted (ocean) water is boiled and turned to steam; then the steam is condensed back to water in the condenser with the salts and pollutants left behind in the boiler. Ocean water has 35,000 parts per million of dissolved solids and the distiller reduces it to zero PPM or just plain water, H2O + nothing.
        When I received the Survival Still, the first thing I saw was a 12” x 3” stainless steel “Donut” shaped object. How could this possibly be called a distiller? There is no boiler or condenser. Upon further examination, it was clear that it was simply a steam diverter and condensate collector and the directions said I needed to buy two specifically sized stainless steel pots. Well, $300 later I was filling one pot with tap water and the “Donut” on top of it, and filling the second pot and precariously perching it on top of the polished, slippery “Donut” surface. Talk about a serious injury waiting to happen! That thought was magnified after this unstable, 55-pound tower was placed on the gas burner stove and the water began rapidly boiling.
        By the time distillate began dripping from the “Donut” into the collection container which I also had to provide, my fears of a potential scalding hazard were apparent. I do not have small children, yet I was still very concerned for my and my wife’s safety. Within just 20 minutes the temperature of the water in the top pot was at 50% and the amount of steam had increased; however, the amount of distillate had decreased proportionately.
        I immediately realized the need to continually dump this 25-pound condenser pot and replace it with cool water regularly. What a waste of water and a major job and hassle this was! Plus, I had to watch it closely because the condenser could quickly reach scalding temperatures near boiling. Even 150 F. can cause severe 3rd degree scald burns with only 2 seconds of skin contact. To even get close to the advertised claim “12 gals per day,” I needed to change the water when it reached 135-140 F, or roughly every 20 minutes.
        I read the reviews on Amazon for the “Donut and pots thing” and was not surprised that it received only 3.5 stars. Some were suggesting that rather than continually lifting the 25-pound condenser pot of scalding water, to dump and refill with cool tap water to just add ice cubes or block ice to cool it down and produce more distillate. Really? During an emergency or disaster, Ice? Why don’t you forget the “Donut” distiller and just melt and drink the ice? I finally trashed this so-called distiller since I couldn’t in good conscience sell it on Ebay to some unsuspecting buyer. I do however now own the incredible SurvivorStill non-electric automatic scald proof 18 gallon per day unit! You can read my review at Solar-Powered Non-Electric Emergency Water Distiller and Water Purifier.

      I need to read your attached paper before I rate your response. Most folks who donate their time sell DVDs, CDs, books, or other materials to support their efforts. I don’t have to purchase. Last year I bought a solar oven because of the online presentation provided by the manufacturer. I’m a seeker of info, a lifelong learner; thank you for attaching the report. I will read it.

       
      1. Judy Gilleland

        Fluoride is a concern yes; most people should visit geomedicine.com and see what chemicals they have already been exposed to. You enter every address where you have ever lived or worked. As a thyroid and breast cancer survivor I am concerned about too much arsenic in the water, etc. However, above ground nuclear testing in the U.S. from 1939 to 1963 poisoned many state water supplies and grasslands, it was all dependant on the wind patterns the day the blast took place. The nuclear test info, dates, times, places is now available. What we used to think as the affected states was in fact a much wider spread of radiation across the nation. I was a bottle fed baby and thus rec’d the poison thru the cows milk. Additionally, in the 1950s dentists only covered our chest, not our thyroid glands.there was no such thing as a collar to protect your neck at the dentist office. I’m not even going to guess about Chernobyl, Three Mile Island, and Fukishima meltdown. All info on clean water methodologies is appreciated.

         
        1. Marjory Wildcraft

          Hi Judy, I went to geomedicine.com and couldn’t find the place to put in my zip code. That sounds like an awesome resrouce. I watched the TED talk on geo data on pollution in the enviroment and how this should be a part of the medicals systems analysis your health.

          Wow, thanks for bringing this up. I will do more research and hopefully bring it to the TGN blog soon.

           
          1. Ela

            I tried finding that info too and came across http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org
            Not very happy or hopeful at the moment.

Some were suggesting that rather than continually lifting the 25-pound condenser pot of scalding water, to dump and refill with cool tap water to just add ice cubes or block ice to cool it down and produce more distillate. Really? During an emergency or disaster, Ice? Why don’t you forget the “Donut” distiller and just melt and drink the ice? I finally trashed this so-called distiller since I couldn’t in good conscience sell it on Ebay to some unsuspecting buyer. I do however now own the incredible SurvivorStill non-electric automatic scald proof 18 gallon per day unit!

      1. Jeannon

        Thank you so much for explaining and giving your experience. Am headed over to WaterDistillers.com .

        Would love to have this and try this. One thing I have lots of here deep in the heart of Texas is lots of free solar/sunshine.

         
      2. Steven

        Your comment is VERY vague. No link to the actual product you are promoting. All I could find were the doughnut shaped item you say you hate and a $1000 contraption.

         
        1. Marjory Wildcraft

          Hi Steven,

          That product on Amazon was not at all what Glenn produces… Thanks for doing th eresearch and posting.

           
      3. Marjory Wildcraft

        Hi Clayton,

        I am not sure if we are all talking about the same product… I don’t recall a dougnut thing in the distiller of Glenns.

        For the record, I did a product review of Glenns still. In my opion it is a good product, and I had a little difficulty with it, which I write about. I certinaly don’t use the distiller from day to day – but I am glad to have it in case of emergency.

        Here is the link to my review if you are curious (yes, I do try to review everything before we post it – it doesn’t alwyas happen but we do our best to vet things thourighly).

        http://thegrownetwork.com/product-review-the-survival-still-by-survival-still/

         
        1. Clayton Douglas

          Yes I definitely was referring to Glens distiller. Rather than repeating Survival Still throughout the post, because I had earlier referred to it as a donut-shaped stainless steel steam diverter, NOT a DISTILLER…I used the term donut through the entire post. I have been following you for years along with my wife. I respect you highly, you are a women of integrity, honesty and a heart for others. You have a sweet spirit and warm countenance. You are my motivation for exposing Glen. His product is not a distiller by any stretch of the imagination until the unsuspecting customer buys two pots. He does that to make it appear the “Donut” cost less than other distillers that provide a boiler and condenser. That is deception, not to mention again this distiller is a major scald and third degree burn hazard! The top pot easily reaches 150F in minutes, which is hot enough to cause 3rd degree burns in just 2 seconds of skin contact and it is 5 gallons unstably perched on a very slippery polished stainless steel “Donut”. Not to mention another 3-4 gallons of boiling water at 212F sitting under the “Donut” waiting for a child to grab hold and pull 50 pounds of scalding onto them! or a clumsy adult. I’m looking out for your integrity Marjory… Now that you know I was talking about Glen’s poor excuse for a distiller, please take your extremely valuable time to read it again. May God richly bless you and your organization of beautiful people.

           
      4. JJM

        I quickly reviewed the SurvivorStill SS-5 non-electric automatic and for $300, looks good but requires fuel based heat (petro, electric or wood). Someone should get with a Paul Munson type to incorporate a solar boiler that could alternatively be heated by fuel.

         
    6. Bruno

      Population control is a good idea.

      The earth is having a difficult time sustaining itself. The resources are being used faster then the earth can replenish them in an natural manner. Thus we must continually create new technologies to fill the gap!

      Many of the worlds poor have overbearing amount of children.

       
      1. Lizee

        Which is why birth control should be considered an essential health service and available to all.

         
      2. Douglas Hoover

        Hey Bruno, Wrong thread for your scary propaganda. But since you showed up, I have a question. I’m poor but providing for my family playing my guitar on the street. Will you and your Agenda 21 BilderBerg friends let me live? Please Please, if I play you a tune!

         
        1. Jim A.

          Douglas,

          You are correct in that Bruno’s statement is not directly pertaining to this thread inovolving water and distillers, but is sure is indirectly in the way he is more on topic in his own way than us other commenters. I suggest you sit back and watch what the speaker says his purpose is for giving up his knowedge to us. Everything he presents to us is only the after product of his reason for showing us his point and facts of what his issue is that he specifically says not just at the very beginning of his presentation, but throughout the entire presentation he reminds us what his issue is, and it is not his distiller. Everything he shows us only helps to explain his issue. Bruno is commenting on that point…a very observant (and seemingly gentle) person who is here with us, no less.

          Then, in Bruno’s defense, please do not put words in his mouth. What you say and you strongly imply he said nothing of the sort. Your emotion has forced you to talk of killing, which is nothing of the sort that Bruno was saying.

          Therefore although you are probably one who gave him a THUMBS down, I am refusing to give you any rating because your statement is more not of this thread than his is and I am having a headache presently trying to figure out why you took advantage of Bruno’s topic issue.

           
    7. Chris

      That article in the link you shared made me grateful I didn’t bear any children and seriously consider killing myself. I feel so bad about what I’m doing to this planet and world as a human being despite trying to leave as little of a footprint as possible.

      Yesterday, I came across the following report by the WWF:

      https://www.worldwildlife.org/pages/living-planet-report-2016?utm_campaign=living-planet&utm_content=lpr&utm_medium=camp&utm_source=shortcut

      “Populations of vertebrate animals—such as mammals, birds, and fish—have declined by 58% between 1970 and 2012. And we’re seeing the largest drop in freshwater species: on average, there’s been a whopping 81% decline in that time period.

      This loss of wildlife is startling, and people are at risk, too. Without action, the Earth will become much less hospitable for all of us. We must consider our impact on nature as we make development, economic, business, and lifestyle choices. A shared understanding of the link between humanity and nature is essential to making profound changes that will allow all life to thrive for generations to come.””

       
    8. Taylor Young

      Jeannon,
      Not all people have ALL the pieces to the puzzle of what is truly going on in this world. Our presenter understands the need for water distillers but may not know about the intentional depopulation agenda that has been ongoing for some time. It is also, only natural to want to provide the best in that regard since he knows so much about what can happen to people in disaster and emergency situations when they drink contaminated water.
      I have been drinking distilled water for my health for the last 6 years. I have no ill effects and I have not replaced the inorganic minerals removed from the water since the body cannot absorb, metabolize, utilize inorganic minerals, regardless of what Doctors or other ilinformed people may say. You absorb “organic” minerals from plants that you eat. You cannot absorb the minerals from those mineral capsules and tablets or from mineral water and that stuff usually collects in the joints or kidneys causing many health problems.
      I distil my own water. The distiller I have cost around $300, is electric and I get only 1 gallon every 3 to 4 hours. I have a TDS (total dissolved solids) meter that I bought on ebay for $15, a pH meter for the same and I purchased a 1-time kit to test for all the chemicals mentioned for around $50.
      I checked out the distiller at the link provided below, by another commenter, and the distiller, if it really does what is says, then it is a darn good buy! 18 Gallons a day! No electricity! Soloar powered. That is an excellent price for what you are getting. This man is Yes, very altruistic. He understands the NEED for this (not as much I as I understand the need however because it is needed every day not just in emergencies)and he is making sure that people understand this BEFORE an emergency arises and if he is the seller of that Distiller, then good for him! He can’t give it away for free, but he is letting people protect themselves at a VERY good price.
      I learned about the health benefits of distilled water about 6 years ago. I read a few articles and watched several videos on Youtube and made a playlist. (below) I started waking up to what is going on in this world that has been intentionally hidden and suppressed from us. We are being slow killed in every way imaginable. So why would I believe “them” Drs, when they say that Distilled water would leach mineral from your body. It doesn’t. It does however, remove the inorganic minerals, (rocks) from your body that it cannot use anyway, which is better for you than NOT having them removed. I am my own body of proof.
      https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLhihsm7f8CnrMsoEcuT0sKf5kg41pV-7I Also, there is no other way to remove the Fluoride from your drinking water. And fluoride has been found to be so much worse for the body than previously known. It can cause cancer, among other things. There are many documentaries about Fluoride on Youtube. Start with the Great Culling of our Water.

       
      1. Taylor Young

        I realize now, that the water distiller I liked so much was not the one that Glenn Meder is selling. The one that distils 18 gal a day with solar power is at Amazon for $989 Free S&H
        To be fair, I went to Glenn Meder’s MyDrinkingWater.com site and saw that his was the one that the other commeter did not like. I can’t say anything negative about it, having not used it. However, I don’t like the idea of having to boil the water for everyday use. That is why I was impressed with the one at Amazon. (Although I have boycotted Amazon for many reasons) Having said that, for emergency purposes $239 for Glenn’s distiller is not bad and a good thing to have. Since I drink ALOT of water every day and cook with it, I keep my electric distiller running 24/7. It would be difficult for me to be lifting a heavy pot of water to the stove or onto a fire. Sorry Glenn… Anyway, I like the solar powered distiller for $1000 better, but like I said, I use mine everyday all day long.

         
        1. Marjory Wildcraft

          Hi Taylor

          I really applaud you on focusing on getting clean water. It is som important! Most people are chronically dehydrated.

          I completely agree with you about Glenns distiller not a practical thing for everyday ues.

          It does take time and is work. I like it promarily for emergecny purposes. Ill put this up again – it’s the review of Glenns still here.

          http://thegrownetwork.com/product-review-the-survival-still-by-survival-still/

          BTW, I talk with Glenn regulalry. He is a solid small businessman trying to amke a living and do good.

           
        2. Douglas Hoover

          Taylor, I’m no fan of Amazon either! That 18 gallon per day distiller is sold at SurvivorStillStore.com – The owner is a veteran that truely loves people! His name is Chance and is being interviewed all over the internet. Last week he gave away a free generator to the first 10 people that donated to his non-profit to veterans! What a great cause.

          In addition, I want to let readers know I have been drinking 1-1-1/2 gallons of distilled water per day for 42 years (70 years old) I also fast one a year on just distilled water. Every three years I fast 40 days! In 42 years I have not been sick or been to a doctor, taken any medication, not even an aspirin. Not even had the flu, a cold or even a sore throat! A man with an experience is not at the mercy of a person with an argument.
          I appreciate Marjory Wildcraft http://thegrownetwork.com/ so very much for all her hard work and dedication to make this incredible seminar available for FREE no less! In honor of her I’m giving away a free download of my book: “Distilled Water & Health” from Amazon -Kindle Books…to all here presenters and attendees.

    Great talk. It a shame towns and city water system do this to make the water safer.

     
  6. Sara

    I went to the mydrinkingwater.com site and cannot find the answer to my question (posed at the end of your presentation) about how to get beneficial minerals since those are removed in distillation. I would very much like the answer to the question. Where do I go to find that information?

     
    1. Jeannon

      Use a good search engine and search on this term…

      replacing minerals to distilled drinking water

      I would say there are several multi-mineral capsules/pills for sale out there and have been taking them for years.

       
      1. Douglas Hoover

        I have been adding mineral to my distilled water for 42 years. The best of the best are from a company in Salt Lake City- they are produced from evaporating ponds of water from the Great Salt Lake. “Concentrace Minerals” contain EVERY mineral your body needs and in chelatable form.
        They are sold on Vitacost.com a large Wholesale website of vitamin, minerals etc.

    2. Cindy

      Sara, Here is an article by Glenn on this topic: http://survivalstill.com/dont-i-need-minerals-in-my-water/

       
      1. Sara

        Thank you Cindy- I appreciate your helpfulness!!

         
      2. Sara

        Just read the article- I was interested in Glenn’s take as I found his presentation to be very well researched and informative. He didn’t disappoint – good to know I don’t need to worry about remineralization or even supplementation as long as my diet is balanced. Thank you again!

         
        1. Douglas Hoover

          Hi Sara, I have been drinking distilled water for 42 years and knew early on that we don’t get any beneficial mineral from water, including expensive, trendy mineral water. Those are inorganic minerals and the colon wall cells cannot chelate them (absorb) They contribute to kidney stones, gull stones and plaque in the colon. Read my previous post.

    good info!! thanks!

    Oxygenated water filters?//Hoax? Good for anything?

     
  9. Oldman47

    I have a well that the local authority has declared “safe to drink” but it has easily detected H2S in it and people on this aquifer report regularly that if you cap a sample of the water and let it stand a few minutes you can light the gas bubble above the water in the jar. Most likely, being an oil and coal producing area, it is methane dissolved in the water. How can the stills you are advertising deal with gasses in our water?

     
    1. Douglas Hoover

      All of the harmful inorganic mineral and non-beneficial substances are left in the boiler of a distiller and the gasses are safely vented off in the boiling process. Plus many distillers come with a post filter to insure absolute purity.

       
  10. Shannon

    It seemed more like an infomercial for his product.

     
    1. Molly

      I disagree. An infomercial would have left us in no doubt that we can get the product from him (usually for the low, low price of, and while supplies last, etc.). Not once in the presentation did he push a specific distiller, or type of distiller, or suggest that we buy his.

      I’ve watched enough information videos thinly disguised as sales pitches to be able to spot them pretty quickly. This wasn’t one.

       
    2. Shannon

      Dear Marjory,
      I in no way meant to offend you. I got your email. I was trying to give honest feedback on my own personal take away from the presentation. I love what you have put together here. I am happy that these presenters have items to sell. Most of them, I learn how to do something or improve a technique and it makes me want to learn more about their product like learning to catch a bee swarm makes me want to buy the book. I got to the end of this presentation with the safest water was distilled water. I was waiting for what I could do and it left me with buying a product as the answer. I thought with your feedback and thumbs up and down you wanted us to tell you. I will only comment when I have positive feedback to give in the future. I truly love and have learned SO much from you and your presenters over the years. Once again, thank you for all the work you put into helping us learn and become more independent!

       
      1. Marjory Wildcraft

        Thanks for the clarification Shannon

        And you kind words about our work! It’s a team effort (whew that is the truth!). It is so fun to live your purpose and those of us working here are getting to live ours by doing this work.

         
  11. Molly

    Thank you Mr. Meder for sharing your knowledge with us. As I was listening there were little bells going off in my head (not literally, of course.) I can’t drink the tap water at my home without it upsetting my stomach, even if it’s filtered, and I’ve heard that others have the same problem. Last time we had our water tested we were told there are an acceptable/legal level of nitrates in it. The specialist lives not too far from us and said there’s an unacceptable level at his house. He blames it on a nearby golf course and the treatments they apply. That’s when I decided buying water wasn’t a waste of money after all.

    I’m interested in learning more about radioactive contaminants. Can you tell me anything about the risks of uranium in particular? I ask about that one because it was found in the water at my mother’s high school. She didn’t know about it until years later, and we’re not sure how far back the contamination went.

     
    1. Maria Regina

      There can be a problem with harmful vapors arising from water distillers in emergencies especially when using tap water, toilet tank water, pool water, or river water that is not pre-filtered using solid carbon block technology.

      I purchased a solid carbon block filter to pre-filter my water before distilling it. This solid carbon block can be suspended for gravity feeding in an emergency, when there is no water available from the local water utilities. Next, the pre-filtered water can be boiled or distilled.

      Although solid carbon block technology does not improve the flavor much at all, it does get rid of excess iron, debris, chlorine, and other chemical impurities in the water. There are solid carbon block filters that are designed to get rid of heavy metals like arsenic. Are there any solid carbon block filters that will eliminate or reduce nitrites, nitrates, or foul smelling sulfur?

      Reverse Osmosis units can filter out fluoride in the water, but the pre- and post-filters and the RO bag need to be changed regularly.

       
      1. Molly

        Thank you, Maria Regina. We did look into RO and it is beyond our budget right now, but is certainly an option for the future.

         
      2. Douglas Hoover

        Please keep in mind Maria, that the vapors emitted from boiling any tap water come from volatile chemicals such as chlorine dissipate upon contact with air. We are talking about parts per trillion. The air you breath today consists of dozens of harmful volatilized chemicals. In addition, when there is a natural or man-made disaster, tap water will more than likely be non-existent. Which. means that block carbon filters will be impossible to use. That is precisely why FEMA and the red cross recommends distillation above all other means of water purification. In a major nationwide disaster, millions will die from dehydration or drinking dangerous tainted water with chemical, disease germs, deadly bacteria, viruses or cysts. Not fumes emitted from a distiller. Hope this helps… Doug

         
        1. Marjory Wildcraft

          Wow Doug,

          That is pretty harsh, but probably true if we suffer a sudden and prolonged collaspe.

           
  12. Cindy

    Molly,

    Here is an article Glenn wrote about radioactive contaminants in water. I hope it’s helpful.

    http://survivalstill.com/what-you-need-to-know-about-radiation/

     
    1. Molly

      Thanks, Cindy!

       
  13. Brigitte

    FEMA is not our friend!

     
    1. Douglas Hoover

      Thanks Molly, nice to know I’m not the only one to think so. However you can pretty much include the entire government today!

       
  14. Ted

    To those people who didn’t care for his presentation you obviously were reading too much of your own agenda into what he was saying. Were there other topics he could have taken on in conjunction with this, of course. He chose the route he did perhaps because of limited time.

    In case you haven’t watched the series EVERYONE HERE IS SELLING SOMETHING! This gentleman was far less obvious about his connection to a product than many of the other presenters.

    Overall a good presentation on water quality and the best way to manage it for health reasons.

    If you have questions you didn’t feel he should have addressed at least have the courtesy to contact him and see if he responds to your inquiry.

     
    1. Blackthorn

      Ted- This IS pretty much the place for comments.

       
      1. Marjory Wildcraft

        Blackthron,
        I hope we get to meet sometime – I like your straight forward comments.

         
        1. Blackthorn

          Marjory-
          It would be nice to meet you and Dave. Not likely I’ll be making my way back to Texas but you never know.
          I appreciate all the hard work you do for positive change. It’s your whole life and that’s easy to see. It’s a difficult path but I can see you’d have it no other way.
          Thanks for everything.

           
    2. Douglas Hoover

      So sorry to profusely disagree Ted. If I were to give you a thumbs up on the portion of your analysis that was obviously true obvious…( Glen has tons of honest truthful information on the need for drinking distilled water)… then a potential reader of this post would assume I agree with your post. You can flood the reader with reasons why you should consider buying, but how are you helping them,promoting a hazardous and potentially life threatening product. Did you read the earlier post from Clayton? Glen’s product is NOT a distiller, to turn his contraption into a distiller the purchaser needs to invest in 2 stainless steel pots. But the worst feature is the scalding potential from the 40-50 pounds of boiling, scalding water that is unstably perched on your stove awaiting both child or adult. During a disaster you cannot afford a life threatening accident. 150,000 people are scalded annually according to the Burn Institute. What are you chances of being seen, let alone treated in any hospital during any disaster? I apologize for the thumbs down, but I have to be honest and say what I know to be fact. I owned one of Glen’s Survival stills! Thumbs way way down on it!

       
  15. Elena

    Can you recommend with distillation we can buy

     
    1. Douglas Hoover

      Yes, Elena, since you asked, I literally tossed Glen’s Survival Still in the garbage and just like Clayton’s earlier post, I too own a SurvivorStill and am absolutely thrilled with its performance. Totally automatic, will purify any polluted water including from the ocean or sewer. Operated on any heat source, even a campfire. Does not need to be level to operate like all the others and never need to add water to the condenser or boiler like all other non-electric distillers. Plus all other non-electrics are a scald hazard. I paid less for it than I did for the TV in my office and that TV will not save my life in a disaster! The guy to see is a Veteran that has a ministry of helping Veterans! http://www.SurvivorStillStore.com

       
      1. Marjory Wildcraftm

        Hi DOuglas,
        That is an intersting version of a still. It is $1000. Kind of cool having a solar panel and all.

         
  16. Maxine Ogles

    Thanks , Very needful information for our health ..

     
  17. Jane

    Nature purifying the water. With the chemtrails
    we are being sprayed with. Harvards paper calls it solar engineering how in this wide world can nature do its job. Look up people look up. Sun is not orange anymore its white

     
  18. Amanda

    I know that Hallelujah Acres promotes distilled water and while I drank it for years (until mine died of old age) and felt great.

    Now that I’ve listened to this, I am off to buy another!’

    This was a great presentation. Simple and to the point! Thank you!

     
  19. Beth

    Used to be stills were controversial because people were making bootleg liquor with them. a guy simplifies it a bit and offers it at a pretty damn cheap rate (because this method has existed for thousands of years you can build your own, with time, money, research, etc) and gets lambasted for it. Gotta say that is a wholly reasonable price, go check out filtration systems, pretty much start around 5 thousand and dont do nearly as much as they should! I’ve seen a few cheaper, but they seemed very unreliable. anyway, stills seem like a good idea to have around for emergencies whether you build your own, or buy from someone. Thanks for reminding us of how reliable they are!

     
  20. Shelly

    Wait! He was selling something? Yeah, I didn’t get that. Thought is was informative and well done. Usually I don’t like the presentations done with voice over slides but his speech patterns and voice were pleasant enough to keep listening. Good job, thanks

     
  21. Debbie Neill

    My only comment is the still doesn’t work. And I couldn’t return it because when I requested they didn’t respond to me for a week and the return authorization it took another 2 weeks to get it and it was too late. I have the sun oven and it’s great but this is not. It was the worst performance because it was just like his infomercial.

     
  22. Sue

    This presentation was quite thought provoking in it shed some light on the state of our water supply and all the hidden contaminants that are not visible to the naked eye. It’s obvious that the water treatment system is not adequate enough to rid some of the more harmful contaminants in our water supply. You brought to my attention how water boiled only enhances the contaminants already present in the water. That never occurred to me but is a real cause for concern. I have heard about this technique called distillation before. However; your presentation expanded on this process which seems quite easy to implement
    and works better at reduces the harmful contaminants in all categories you mentioned
    in your presentation.

    Thank you for your presentation. It was a great
    mini science lesson well worth taking the time out
    to listen to with health benefits for the efforts. With this thinking maybe salt water can also be transformed into good, fresh drinking water as well.

    I used a 5-gal distiller for many years, thinking the water was pure. But then I found out that certain chemicals go to a gaseous state and then precipitate out in the distilled water. There is a lot of conflicting info. I’d like the presenter to address this issue, if he would–thanks!

    Have you done any research on Structured energized water? johnellis water? its the most purest distilled water. Hydrogen water?

    Speaking of SUN OVEN I could not get the dang Plastic SMELL OUT OF IT and many had the same problem!! They kept saying it was some film on the glass or?? That it wasn’t the plastic seal which I think it had to have been? I tried baking with it also 2x and the whole thing tasted like that smell and i know plastic smells can be xenoestrogens!

      I contacted Sun Ovens about the safety and smell of the oven. Here is what they said:

      We have sold over 90,000 SUN OVENS in the US and the vast majority of SUN OVEN users are very satisfied, which is why you will find 100 positive reviews to every 1 that mentions the smell. Most of the negative reviews predate 2009 when the interior of the SUN OVEN was changed. Since then a small number of people who are not willing to follow the instructions in regards to curing and cleaning their SUN OVENS and experience a lingering smell. Just like any gas or electric oven, it must be cured and cleaned before it is used and some people seem more willing to write about the smell than to solve the problem.

      There is no plastic on the inside of the SUN OVEN. There is nothing toxic in the interior of the oven that will emit fumes; it is a safe totally natural way to cook. The inner shell of the oven is made of aluminum that is anodized. Between the aluminum inner shell and the plastic outer shell there is a lining of food grade fiberglass insulation. The door is made of tempered glass. The outer box is made of ABS plastic. The outer box never gets warm and neither the food nor the air that is in the cooking chamber come in contact with the outer box. The bezel is made of wood.

      We offer a 30 day satisfaction guarantee which allows people to see for themselves how well the SUN OVEN works. If the oven smelled or was not safe we would not be able to offer a satisfaction guarantee.

    Omgosh! for those who are skeptical about STRUCTURED WATER here is proof!! they are using this technology for industrial usage!

    Water is now the scarcest resource, but one American company is looking to change that with a process called “washing water.” During hours two and three, Kevin Collier, president of Collier Group, joined Richard Syrett to describe how their controlled-gravity separation technology might change the way we use, recycle, distribute, and increase the world’s clean water resources. Collier’s first job out of college was designing jet engines, which he says prepared him for developing high-speed centrifuges used to purify waste water. Collier says that his technology can also produce water for drinking and agriculture by separating out the harmful components by a combination of gravity, alternating magnetic fields, and reverse osmosis. He claims that the efficiency of the system is “extremely high.” His company has produced a portable system that can clean fracking wastewater in the field so that it doesn’t have to be loaded into trucks and injected back into the ground, causing earthquakes and contamination of aquifers, as is the case presently. The system extracts the impurities in wastewater in an efficient way that makes the products easy to reuse or dispose of.

    Collier’s process also produces “pipeline grade” oil that is reclaimed in the cleaning process, he says, as well as concentrated salt water. One innovative use of salty wastewater relies on its tendency to stratify in such a way that the bottom layer is superheated when exposed to sunlight, which can be used to power generators and provide power for about 5000 homes from a five acre pond. Collier also related that he has developed a process of using magnetic fields to reduce the surface tension in water, which not only makes it easier to clean, but produces other effects such as use in agriculture as plants become “more hydrated so they grow faster” he asserted. Whatever method is used to provide clean water, Collier thinks that “these are things we must do in the future” to assure a clean and safe environment.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this presentation. I wish to thank Mr. Meder for taking the time to put this information together and presenting it in such a clear and concise way. Thanks for the valuable and thought-provoking information.

    I wish I had the money to buy a distiller. I checked out the Survival Still and I would buy it if I could. Right now I don’t have money, but perhaps in the future I will be able to do so.

    Good luck with your business, and again, thank you.

    Thank you for all the great information about our water! It was a well done presentation! Must get a water distiller now!

    Glen does indeed give what seems to be a fine presentation and without a doubt his facts are straight, certainly through the first 3/4 of his talk. He did fail to mention that the process removes only chemicals that have a lower boiling point than water.

    He also zipped right past the most glaring negative of this process – the amount of energy required for a regular person to distill sufficient drinking water for themselves is really huge.

    HUGE to the point of prohibitive to be practical for daily usage. Especially using his setup. I know for a fact Marjory Wildcraft knows this, too, since she mentioned the long time it took to get a glass of water from her experiment with Glen’s equipment. And for me, using a standard home kitchen gas stovetop on high boiling sufficient water to render an 6 ounce glass, it took 3 quarters of an hour.

    Likening his distillation process to the Hydro Cycle of the Earth is creating some very unrealistic expectations with buyers of his equipment. There’s quite a difference of scale in both time and energy.

    While I disagree with the person who said it sounded like an infomercial, they do hit on a salient point.

    After dismissing all the other methods of water purification and tells us repeatedly distillation is the best, yet closed his presentation leaving us hanging as to the “how” do we can do it.
    Then he leads us to his website where he pitches his gear.

    And make no mistake, this is about him selling his version of a distiller.
    I didn’t make that up. It’s right there on the About Glen page:

    “It is Glenn’s goal to have a Survival Still in every home in the U.S. and other developed nations for emergency situations. He wants to work with business people in other countries to bring the Survival Still to the families of the world.”

    I don’t have a problem with anyone here being ‘vendors’, including Glen. If fact, I wish Glen well in his teaching and sharing his very real concerns with our questionable water but the distillation process using his gear will prove untenable for any quantity other than useful for a child’s science experiment. That needs to be made clear.

    There may be cheaper ways to home distill water but there’s still a cost.

    If distillation were a fair tradeoff it would be everywhere and not just ocean going craft processing seawater the crew and passengers.

    I did have a mould growing issues with my simple water filter. His presentation was logical and convincing. He said he had 25 years experience with purifying contaminated water. I suppose he knows what he is talking about. If over the years he has come to some wisdom and created really good looking product … it is only better for me. I was thinking about buying a filter but I had many doubts about it. Some of them G. Meder mentioned. I think I will buy a water distiller instead. Maybe even his. Thank you very much for the presentation.

    ow, such a great discussion on Glenns presentation…

    Big shout out to all the Coast 2 Coast fans!

    I didn’t see this mentioned, but people should be aware that in the case of volatile contaminates, ie. petroleum products(including pesticides) can be concentrated by distillation! The military found that out when the troops on ships near rivers in Vietnam were drinking distilled water and got very concentrated doses of agent orange.

     
  33. Harold Parizek

    Do you have anything, good or not good, about a Triple O Ozone system? Is the filter useless or is it mainly for “debris”? Also, bromine which converts to bromate by ozone a problem? Thanks.

     
  34. Peggy Bowers

    This was a very good presentation with a lot of factual information. There is no way you can put a lifetime of work and information into a short course like this, people should take this and look into it for themselves. Then they can decide what they want to do. For me, I am going to look into your system with friends and we will go over everything and decide what to do. Thank you so much for all the information.

    Hello to Asia and Austraila! You all awake over there?

    I appreciate this thoughtful presentation. It was an eye opener that filters are not effective

    An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I think which you really should write extra on this subject, it could possibly not be a taboo topic but commonly persons aren’t enough to speak on such topics. Towards the next. Cheers
