While considering purity of drinking water we tend to consider whether the water we are drinking is free from bacteria and viruses. We are wary of water borne diseases like cholera, typhoid, dysentry, etc.

Though these diseases are dangerous and have immediate effect on our health, but at the same time we should not be ignorant of health hazzards from other more alarming impurities present in water – impurities that can cause long term health disorders.

The dissolved of salts of heavy metals and harmful chemicals present in water pose far greater dangers to our health than the micro-biological impurities. Salts of Heavy Metals like Arsenic, Chromium, Lead, Mercury, etc. can cause lifelong damage to our health and can cause early death as well.

Though the bacteria and viruses present in water can be neutralised by boiling or by uv radiation, but the harmful chemicals and heavy metals present in water cannot be eliminated by these process. More importantly we may not even know that we are being slowly poisoned with heavy metal contamination as there is no taste or smell difference in water due to the presence of these dissolved impurities.

Heavy Metal chemicals in drinking water ‘bio-accumulate’ in our body, which means that once heavy metal is absorbed, our body cannot get rid of it. So even though there are no immediate problems, the heavy metals present in water can lead to cancer, stunted growth, nerve damage, and early death. Children are affected most from heavy metal pollution.

The best way to remove such dissolved salts of heavy metals and harmful chemicals is by using an Reverse Osmosis (RO) Water Purifier which can eliminate micro-biological, dissolved salts of heavy metals and chemical impurities.
