Give that man a kewpie doll. Yep read this.
How pure is iceberg ice?
Since glacier ice is formed from falling snow and snow results from condensed water vapor in the atmosphere, the water from icebergs is quite pure. Sometimes airborne dust from volcanic eruptions or from the wind (thousands of years ago) is deposited on the surface of a glacier and gradually becomes trapped within the ice so that traces are found in icebergs. But there are not likely to be many pollutants!
I let the ice melt a bit before starting to harvest it for my use, and I also drink some of it. No salt.
I still looking off the beach here for some sun, so I guess we are even
