IMPORTANCE OF WATER FOR OUR BODY
The two third of our body mass is water. It aids in our bodys' absorption of nutrients, blood circulation discharge of waste and toxins and much more. Water is vital because it also provides essential minerals, which our body needs to function properly.
TAP WATER COULD BE DANGEROUS FOR US
With more than 35000 toxic chemicals being used throughout the world, for many toxins end up in our drinking water. Furthermore, chlorine, which is often used to kill germs in water, is dangerous in presence of organic leading to THM's (Trinalo Methane), an active component isolated from cancer cells. Over exposure of chlorine can cause high cholesterol deposits, heart attacks, strokes and even cancer. Drinking poor quality water poses more threat to infants and young children who have 5 times more absorbtion rate than adults due to more active cells.
If nitrate contents in water is high, the chances of blue babies are more, a condition called methanohaemoglobenemia. It is frightening to think of the damage that the pollutants such as mercury, lead, plutonium or polyvinyl chloride, could do to the delicate cells of the growing children.
Even putting up any purifier on line for tap water can not provide the standard mineral water, since the purifier only de-activates the bacteria and filters the water but can't change the chemical composition of tap water. If tap water is polluted having high TDS and other chemical impurities, these cannot be removed totally by such purifiers and false claims of purifier companies selling mineral R.O. have forgot that blending raw water is adding pesticides to the end product just for increasing TDS of giving name mineral water.

Water - the Beverage your Body Needs Most
When we were kids in school, we learned that each molecule of water is made up of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. We also learned that it was great fun to fill up our squirt guns with water, at least until the principal caught us. What we really didn't learn, however, was how much water we needed in order to be healthy human beings.
Why We Need to Drink Water
Our bodies are estimated to be about 60 to 70% water. Blood is mostly water, and our muscles, lungs, and brain all contain a lot of water. We need to drink water because water is needed to regulate body temperature and to provide the means for nutrients to travel to all our organs. Water also transports oxygen to our cells, removes waste, and protects our joints and organs.
Signs of Dehydration
We lose water through urination, respiration, and by sweating. If you are very active, you lose more water than if you are sedentary. Diuretics such as caffeine and alcohol result in the need to drink more water because they trick our bodies into thinking we have more water than we need. Symptoms of mild dehydration include chronic pains in joints and muscles,lower back pain, headaches, and constipation. A strong odor to your urine, along with a yellow or amber color indicates that you are not getting enough water.
