Water is fundamental to human life, but do we know about it, oddly enough, quite a bit. What water is beneficial for our body? What is harmful? In recent years, scientists are increasingly paying attention to the relationship between Drinking water quality and public health. According to who, more than half of all diseases on the planet comes from water pollution, and this applies not only to countries far away from civilization, but also to modern mega-cities with their adverse human and the technological impact on the environment. Until recently, residents of large Russian cities rather soft on the use of tap water, believing that it can be drink without fear for their health. However, when combined chlorine (for water treatment plants is disinfected with chlorine) with the contained water in organic matter produced a whole range of harmful carcinogens and toxic compounds, in particular the most dangerous poisons – dioxide. Once in the stomach, dissolved in water, chlorine kills along with pathogenic and healthy microflora, which leads to dysbacteriosis, so drink unboiled water from the tap is not recommended. Many comfort themselves by thinking that it is enough to boil water to make it safe for the body.
However, it is not so. Boiling water kills pathogenic microbes, but does not solve the entire problem water purification, and in a sense, only exacerbates the problem. When boiling water chlorine form carcinogens, and the longer the water is boiling, so it is dangerous. In addition, you need to take into account that contained in the water inorganic compounds in the process of boiling, do not decompose, there is a concentration of heavy metals and nitrates, which can cause high blood pressure, blurred vision and other diseases. Instead of water as drinking have increasingly begun to use water in plastic bottles.
Until recently, this water seemed excessive luxury, but every year it increases the number of consumers. Constraints on this path are Lack of knowledge about the poor quality of tap water and is relatively weak purchasing power of the Russian population. Increases the number of manufacturers of bottled water, releasing it under different brands. In Currently there are over 700 kinds of domestic drinking water, although they are mostly known only in those regions where it is produced. Naturally, this approach should not seek direct relationship between water quality and the intensity of sales. High-quality water can not be claimed, but less quality to become a leader. In pole position are not consumers, and large companies that have greater financial capacity to promote its product on the market. What is quality and healthy drinking water? Obviously, the concept of good drinking water, people are different. Some want to purchase the water was especially useful to health, others enough that it is harmless and well quenches thirst, and, finally, the third is content to keep the water was pleasant to the taste, it is desirable to cool and highly carbonated. Many of those Who gets the water for cooking, put up another requirement on the quality of water: they want by boiling was not scaling the walls of the kettle or saucepan. To these requests and are oriented manufacturers drinking water. Read the label. In order for buying bottled water, choose life, to learn to read the label. It was read, and not to consider the pictures on it, because it can lead to confusion. For example, if the label shows mountains and glaciers, it does not mean that before you natural water, water found in the highlands. Such water may overflow from the municipal water supply
