Water is the elixir of life. Indeed no one can live without drinking water. But today people are dying by drinking water. Thanks to our recklessness we have made safe drinking water a luxury and polluted our water bodies. Even the filtration provided by civic bodies in India is unsuitable for drinking. It is contaminated and unfit for human consumption. Bacteria, viruses, and pollutants can affect the water, and if you drink it, you could become ill immediately or, if the contamination is undetected and you drink it for a long period, you could develop chronic health issues.
Primarily there are four types of contaminants that can enter your drinking supply: microbial pathogens like salmonella and dysentery, organic compounds like pesticides and solvents, inorganic compounds like arsenic and lead and radioactive elements like radon.
The four major contaminants are:
1. Microbes can make you sick right away. The symptoms include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and stomach cramps. The other three types of contaminants usually don’t cause any symptoms right away, but they can build up in your system over time and cause problems like thyroid disease and cancer.
2. The Chemical Compounds, both organic and inorganic chemicals such as chlorine, arsenic, fluoride or copper are enough to make us sick in the long run. They cause irreparable damage to our health. Some chemical compounds find their way into water naturally (things like minerals) or artificially. The compounds like fluoride added to water, copper or metal contaminants from plumbing, or even chemical fertilizers and other synthetic chemicals which can leech into water sources are one of the biggest threat to human health and life.
3. Bacteria and parasites are living microorganisms which are present in the water we drink. While most bacteria and parasites are harmless or even helpful, some can have extremely negative health impacts, such as Cryptosporidium or Clostridium which cause vomiting and diarrhea.
4. Viruses are often thought of as similar to bacteria, although they have many key differences. The most important when it comes to filters is the fact that viruses can be tens or hundreds of times smaller than most bacteria. This makes them exceptionally hard to filter and most water filters are not fine enough to remove virus particles.
This has led people to make their own arrangement. The sale of RO water filters and other water purifiers has indeed gone up in the last few years as the awareness about the ill effects of the contaminated water is spreading. However, when people travel they find it extremely difficult to get access to clean drinking water. Even the water available in hotels is no guarantee that it is drinkable. Besides, there are a number of spurious packaged drinking water brands that are selling mineral water. Sometimes when a person is traveling by train or car does not have an option but to buy the available mineral water.
Many incidents have been reported in which the packed drinking water has been found more contaminated than the tap water. Indeed there is little a person can do in such situation. Thankfully now we have an option. Water Bottle with filters provides an effective means of filtering the unclean water on the go. They are handy, affordable and provide good clean water instantly.
