Even this challenging situation would ease
I do not think the water available in cans and packages are bad for health. There is nothing in the water to lose anything. If you are worried, just add Jeera to the packaged water and use it. That will keep us in good health.
I sincerely use so-called mineral water available in the cans. I boil it and use it for cooking and drinking.
No life without Sun
Personally I feel just filtered water which is not having Flouride is the best water to drink. Manjeera water meets all the requirements. Just filtering and drinking is the best option for manjeera water.
The only difference in the water from the pipeline and the water in the bottle is the chemicals being added to the bottle to avoid the sediments such as dirt and/or other waste particles.
Smaller machinery based on the reverse osmosis system are available in the market. However, there is a debate in the market that the water supplied from it is not completely clean. If asked, they will show you another more expensive machine. They do not hesitate to say that the second shown machine is not completely clean as it will be more expensive and available in the market. The latest version is Alkaline Water. It is said that is the best clean water.
In our area, water from wells is used for drinking and cooking. But the water levels in many wells are decreasing and mixed with some wastes ( coliform bacteria also). There is a huge correlation between the condition of our toilets and the increase in water pollution.
Among the Indian states, Kerala (98.5%) is in the 1st place of the source of good drinking water. All India Average is 85.5%. In South India, Tamil Nadu is at the 6th position on the list with 92.5%, Andhra Pradesh is at 9th position on the list with 90.5%, and Karnataka is in the 11th position with 87.5%. The Union Territories, Chandigarh and Damen and Diu are in front of Kerala with 99.3% and 98.7% respectively.
The 'One Drop Foundation' has launched a project called "The METRO Water Initiative" action has been initiated to provide clean water in 22 countries all over the world.
small drops make a mighty ocean
But then came the various schemes of supplying water throgh pipes. By and by people started avoiding rivers and wels. As more and more houses and buildings and houses were constructed, wells and ponds wer closed. People depended municipal water supply. Many such water suply schemes hadwar purification centres whiochare mostly sedimentation and chlorination. But they were okay in the initial days,
However in many cities the water supply pipes got contaminated with leakage from draingaes. Thus even the purified municipal water suplied got contaminated. So people had to use water purifiers at home. Thus the usage of water filters or water purifiers became prevalent in a large number of households.
The close proximity of septic tanks in close-o-close houses and housing colonies, the well water also get contaminated. All these has made water filters and water purifiers an esential item in ourhomes.
However fo most practical purposes a simple candle filter is enough inplaces where there is suuficientand regula municipal supply. If there is doub of contamination then a few drops of chlorine watre is enough to sterilise the water.
Inmy home we use RO water filters with UV .
Patience and perseverance pays
