Water is the most demanded and the most important medium on Earth as well as in the human body. It is the basic necessity to lead a life.
Water is fundamental to all the living creatures and in human body it is the primary component of every bodily fluid and involved in almost every bodily function.
Our body needs water & there’s no substitution to it. One has to drink at least 7-8 glass a day to be healthy and cheerful. But here are some of the uncomfortable facts: in spite after so many years of independence, still there are plenty of households in the country that don’t have adequate amount of drinking water facility. Still over 80% of our population is dependent upon the tap water thus, exposing them to various water borne diseases.
Here are some of the disadvantages of consuming tap water, further in this article, we would also tell you the benefits of pure water and why having water purifier is so important to our health.
- Comes from the surface: Most of the tap water comes from the surface or ground water and thus, chances are high that it would be contaminated with harmful substances that are harmful for your health.
- They are not fit for drinking: As straight as we should say, tap water is just not safe for drinking that’s it. Over 50% of the municipal water supplies don’t meet the government standard. Though government works hard to purify it but still sediments and other contaminants are picked through ageing pipes anyways.
- They are not meant for drinking: The tap water which comes to our house is basically meant for washing clothes, utensils and at best for bathing. But most of us use for drinking also & that’s why the problem arises.
Well, you may find the above mentioned facts a bit uneasy, but it is really very important to understand the crux of it. We should understand why drinking pure water is so essential for having good health and why consuming water is just not a mere time pass but a necessity of life. So let’s discuss:
Drinking purified water does a lot more than just filling your tummy and quenching your thirst. It keeps your body in great working order. Drinking water throughout the day (one glass every 20-30 minutes) will help your body function at optimal levels. It can improve memory and concentration (most essential for the young students), reduce joint pain, chronic fatigue and allergy symptoms; it can also reduce the risk of cancer by 50 to 80% (beneficial for elderly people).
As we all know that Science & Technology have really grown and keep coming with the new solution of every concern. RO (Reverse osmosis) purification system is such which is really becoming popular because of its ability to provide fresh and clean water. Though it is not a new concept and is in the market for years, but because of the recent level of growing water borne diseases, it came into the prominence. First of all, we have to see how it works.
In Reverse Osmosis process, the present contaminants in the water are removed by using pressure to force water molecules through a semi-permeable membrane. During the whole process, most of the harmful substances are washed out. Thus, the water you drink afterwards becomes tastier and makes you feel more energetic.
Nowadays, seeing the severity of water pollution, having a simple water filter is just not enough. Therefore most of the water purifiers nowadays are intact with the latest RO+UV technology. Now some may argue the price of these purifiers and how cannot be afforded by all the people. True, RO purifiers are indeed a bit expensive but they can be easily afforded by the middle class families and with the passage of time and increase in the level of income, we are pretty much sure that even the lower class would be able to buy it.
