Life Giving Water!

Water is Life!

It is well known that 80% of the human body is made of water, so our health and well being totally depend on the quality of water that we drink. Without water people cannot live even for three days. Water is the cornerstone of our entire life.

An adult needs about 2.5 liters of water daily. This means that during his life a man drinks a whole water tank of about 50 tons. Here come just two simple and natural questions:

“What water do we drink?»,  and « What water will our children  drink in the future?”

Lack of water.

The answers to these questions are so far unfortunately disappointing. The population of the globe daily uses 7 billion cubic meters of water, but the total amount of water on the planet does not decrease. Therefore, a man doesn`t face water shortage in the nearest future. What he faces is a real shortage of clean water. More than 2 billion people have little or even no access to clean drinking water. Each year more than 10 million people die because of the lack of pure drinking water. Moreover, 5 million newborns die annually because of the diseases caused by the poor-quality drinking water. According to the World Health Organization, annually due to lack of water or because of its pollution more than a half billion people is sick, nearly 80% of all diseases are caused by unsafe drinking water.

Outdated water treatment technologies used at water stations do not provide a conditioned drinking water, as they do not cope with a high degree of contamination with salts of heavy metals, pesticides, etc.

The most effective upshot of this knot seams to be a post-treatment of water "at the tap." That is the use of individual water treatment devices.

Methods of disinfection and water purification.

1. Boiling as a means of disinfection and water purification doesn`t really cope with its task. Boiling only partially solves the problem of clean water, but not in a quite proper way.

2. Distilled water should ideally be clean and free of any salts or contaminants. It should not contain harmful compounds, but there are no necessary micronutrients in it either.

3. Water precipitation, fractional water purification, purified water from melted snow. These methods are applied in order to somehow improve the quality of tap water but only partially.

4. Water silvering. Silver is a heavy metal and not exactly harmless. Silver ions kill only part of bacteria. Silver inhibits the intestinal flora and its prolonged use can cause dysbiosis.

5. Adsorbtion filters for water purification. The majority of filters used in household are of the adsorption principle. Filter is filled with activated carbon, ion exchange resins and other substances. They effectively adsorb impurities dissolved in water and  retain some bacteria. But experts still estimate the effectiveness of these filters as quite low.

Today the most prospective way to really purify water is the molecular cleaning, which is carried out in the nano track membrane filters. Only molecules of water, oxygen and naturally dissolved microelements can pass through the pores of track membrane due to their small nano-size. The water treated this way also retains all natural minerals necessary for human body.
