I still remember my childhood, when my mother sent me to the village fountain where we lived to fetch water. At that time, the water in some rivers were still untouched by pollution from factories and waste …
Sometimes, after a heavy rain, we were forbidden to drink water from the fountain. It never lasted more than two or three days. So during this time, we drank tap water. Water with all the specialists of the time we praised the quality.
Fortunately, my parents insisted that we go to fetch water from the fountain whenever possible. Today, almost all sources have become undrinkable. The fountains still flow, but the prohibition to drink these waters is formal. One can not appreciate the sound of water flowing over stone damaged by erosion, without appreciating its freshness and taste refreshing.
Well, you just might. It sounds so simple. H20 – two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen. This substance also known as water, is one of the most essential elements to health and is so important that your body actually has a specific drought management system in place to prevent dehydration and ensure your survival. Water might be everywhere, but one must never take it for granted.
Of course, supermarkets and grocery stores sell us bottles of spring water and mineral water. But this direct link with nature is increasingly rare.
Recently, a television has upset many viewers beliefs about the quality of tap water once impeccable.
There are traces of aluminum, radioactivity, medicines and many other chemical molecules all more dangerous than the other.
We learn also that aluminum would be responsible for Alzheimer’s disease. It is believed that traces of drugs could make us resistant to their molecules and the radioactivity change our DNA.
When we realize that our body contains about 70% water, it is reasonable to worry about the impact that may have some water on our body. We need to feel responsible for natural waters and preserve.
Same source waters contain nitrates harmful to our health. The future of our children and future generations depends on our will and our efforts to correct our mistakes. Not only will we gain by finding better health, but also in living harmoniously.
