How contaminated water can have ill-effects on your health
Water and Food are the primary requirements of any human being, irrespective of the social status. We always crave for safe & health drinking water and tasty & nutritious food. Many times, we take that privilege for granted and assume that our health would not be adversely impacted if we have ‘not so pure’ water or ‘not so healthy’ food. If you are staying in a city, you might be aware that the municipality in that city supplies the water to the various households. Though the water is not contaminated, health officials always recommend either to boil the water (before consuming the same) or have it filtered so that there are no germs or impurities in the water.
If we discuss about contaminated water, there are severe health implications of having impure or contaminated water. The ill-effects can range from severe illnesses or even death. People should be self-aware about the quality of water which they are going to consume. When do you consider water as impure or contaminated? When a detailed water test shows the presence of bacteria or chemicals in the water, it is considered as ‘harmful’. Let’s have a look at some of the side-effects of having contaminated water
– The person may suffer from gastrointestinal and stomach related illness.
– The person may suffer from vomiting, cramps, diarrhea, etc. You could even suffer from water-borne diseases like typhoid fever, cholera, and Hepatitis A or E.
– Reproductive problems like ‘infertility’ can also occur in case contaminated water is consumed for a longer duration.
Millions of deaths occur across the world due to water-borne diseases. How do you purify water? You can make use of RO water purifier or water filter which removes the bacteria & pathogens present in the water. You may argue that boiling the water removes all the contaminants in the water, but it does not ‘purify the water completely’. Boiling the water kills the harmful bacteria and other organisms that get eliminated at high temperature, but it does not get rid of other kinds of pollutants like lead, etc. Hence, it is always advisable to use a water purifier; RO (Reverse Osmosis) or UV (Ultra-Violet) for water purification. Companies like LivPure who are considered market leaders in water-purification technologies also have advanced purifiers that do the job of TDS (Total Dissolvable Solid) correction, without altering the taste of the water.
Though LivPure has a range of RO water purifiers & water filters, you should buy water purifier that suits your requirements. It would not make sense to have an RO water purifier which has huge water storage capacity if you few members in your family. Hence, we recommend you to buy the best water purifier after having a detailed look at the specifications. As far as technical aspects of the purifier are concerned, RO water purifiers use RO (Reverse Osmosis) purification methodology where a semi-permeable membrane is used to perform the job of purification. RO water purifiers from LivPure come equipped with a 6-stage/7-stage advanced filtration mechanism so that the water being consumed is free from all harmful chemicals & impurities. You also have the option to select an RO water purifier with UV, AF filtration mechanism.
