Pollution of drinking water can cause a number of illnesses directly and indirectly. The increase in the use of chemicals in cultivation and in everyday use has made it impossible to get natural pure drinking water in many parts of the country. Research has found that ground water can contain anything from pesticides and poisonous metals to hormone medications. Ingesting these pollutants can be very harmful, especially for young children as it can affect physical and mental development.
Another way in which water pollution affects our health is through the reduced intake of water. When water smells or tastes unpleasant, you are less likely to drink more water. So in addition to the illnesses caused by the pollutants in water, you can have more illnesses from your body having inadequate water supply. Water is absolutely necessary for all the bodily processes, such as respiration, digestion and excretion. Water is also necessary to regulate body temperature.
Water also plays an important role in helping you look good. Water is necessary for cell regeneration, detoxification and hydration of your body. Insufficient water in the body can also lead to bloating. So if you want to be in good shape and want to have a clear, glowing skin, you need to take plenty of water. If you do not have pure water, you are not likely to do that. And doing so in such a situation can do more harm than good. One of the common solutions in regions with obviously polluted water is to buy the water used for drinking and cooking. These are usually bought in plastic containers which lead to further pollution. These plastic ends up in landfills causing pollution of earth, air and water. Bottled water is also quite expensive, although it is difficult to put a price on a necessity of life. Drinking the water kept in plastic containers can be very harmful. It is known to increase the chances of prostate and breast cancer.
The good news is that there are many brands of water filters available in the market. They are very convenient to use, with many making it possible to get pure water directly from the tap with no need of long waits and no need to collect the water ahead. After the initial investment, there is very little that you need to spend to maintain these water filters. So very soon you will be saving your money by avoiding paying for bottled water. Water filters use a method called Reverse Osmosis. This helps remove impurities such as Chlorine, Lead and chemicals. The filtration system makes use of carbon filters. Water purifiers often use Ultra Violet radiation to disinfect water. Unfortunately, the UV radiation cannot remove inorganic impurities. Purifiers using Ultra-filtration members can work without electricity. It is a method of size-exclusion filtration and does not use any chemicals.Water filters come in different colours, models and capacity. You can make the choice based on the needs of your home and the aesthetic quality of the system.
When you choose the kind of water filter, it is important to make sure that the purification process does not eliminate all the minerals in the water. These minerals are particularly important for the immune system of the body. For instance, water filters that use distillation method to purify water may not be a very healthy choice. However, carbon filters allow the minerals to pass through them while they stop many of the pollutants. By removing the contaminants, water filters can improve the smell and taste of water. This means that you will feel like drinking more water and since water filters are cost-effective, you need not be worried about using up too much water. This can have a very positive impact on your health. Drinking enough water can avoid symptoms, such as fatigue, headache and body pain, caused by dehydration.
