Appreciating the intrinsic ingredient of life -- Water (7)

Clean water is crucial to survival,
yet it has become something
that we take for granted

While in some third world countries
clean water remains a detrimental issue,
we who lives in modern cities,
also have another set of problems with clean water.

In more developed countries,
there are indeed clean water systems in place,
but we do funny(ie inappropriate) things
with the clean water we drink:

We chlorinate the water.
-- This undoubtedly intoxicates the water,
which in turn kills ourselves softly and slowly.
Governments may claim that
the chlorination dosage is
generally regarded as safe,
but they forgot that
the effect of chlorine intoxication is accumulative.

We remove minerals from the water.
-- This robs away life force in water.
Water is only biological compatible
when there are minerals in it,
to sustain water molecules
in the right molecular conformation,
in the right cluster size and
in the right bioavailability format.

We distill/reverse osmotise the water.
-- This turns water into a pure form of chemical
and could easily harm our body
by depriving our minerals in our body,
if consumed in long term.
Distilled and RO waters may be useful in
detoxification procedures (for effective results),
but they are not suitable
for long term day-to-day consumption.

People may claim that the above measures
are inevitable to ensure the safety of drinking water,
especially when many of our water sources
are now contaminated by industrial waste, agriculture waste+chemicals etc.

Exactly, the above argument urges us to reflect on
how we should lead a more humble, contented and responsible living,
by conserving resources on Earth and
protecting the Earth from further contamination.

Hence, one may conclude that:
Water could serve as an indicator on how grateful we lead our lives,
be it from bodily health or environmetal perspectives!

Well regards,
