Health Benefits of Drinking Water

Who would ever question the need to drink water daily?


Here is what to be aware of to protect your well-being:

The drinking water we ingest must be 'good' water.

(Duck droppings should be the greatest of our concerns but who knows that is usually not the case?)

Our bodies consist of 70% water. Thus, water that is not safe and clean, will probably hurt us sooner or later.

NoBody!

Impurities exist in All water.

When do most people really think about safe water?

Usually when there is a real threat to the water supply as in the aftermath of some catastrophe such as a flood or tornado or 'spill'.
