It is so sad and unfortunate that some people do not have clean water to drink. Because clean water is very very healthy for you and yes, people should drink a lot of water through out the day, everyday. BUT it is not good to drink dirty, unhealthy water...so I don't see it being a benefit to someone to drink it.

Thanks for sharing with me,and i just wonder is there a new drink could instead dirty water if people in some areas couldn't drink clean water.It's so pathetic.

Hey,really thanks.And i think that eat much fruit and vegetable would be really good if we don't have clean water.Of course,like milk or coffee are reprocessed.So,they are not as good as those original..lol Have a nice day!!

Drinking plenty of water is very healthy to us and keeps our metabolism running! It is not a good idea to drink a dirty water so I think a vegetable juice is another good idea. Although, water came from the faucet isn't really that good... I tried drinking in there. It tastes normal, but nothing's better than a mineral water :) Distilled water is good too!

In my home country the water is safe to drink. It is best therefore to drink around 8 glasses of water per day. I travel to other countries and it is not always safe to drink. So I have to buy bottles of water. These can cost quite a lot and it a hot climate a person needs to drink a lot. It can be cheaper to buy 5 liters than keep on buying 1 liter bottles of water. Even when the water is safe to drink it might be unwise to drink it. In LA I found the water tasted awful.

Yes it is better to drink plenty of water everyday. But drinking dirty water is not a good idea. It can cause sickness that will ruin also our immune system. But sad to say, that even 3/4 part of the Earth's surface is water but we can't assure that they are all clean. Some it was polluted its because also of the higher volume of Human race that are dominating the earth.

Hello Dear Jricky! It is true that we should have plenty of water as this is one f the most important need of the body next to the air we breath! Lack of water can make our body sick so it is advised to have good amount of water every time, so that we can excrete our body wastes through the urine and sweat which is mainly composed of the water as its main constituent! Every body part is supplied with blood which carries food and oxygen for maintenance and again blood is having water as its a major constituent! It is really unfortunate to hear that you don't have good quality water to drink! Drinking such water can be dangerous also! What is the problem with the water. Is is hard water or mixed with some extra minerals or it is turbid or contaminated one? I think you can go in for some water filters which not only filters the water but exposes it to UV radiation so that the microbes present in the water gt killed! But if there is any chemical alteration in the water then this may not work for you! have you got tested your water by some competent local authorities to know what exactly is wrong with it? Please don't neglect this as this can be a big issue of concern for you and your children too! Kindly rspond about the nature of water what you are drinking presently so that some thing can be worked out accordingly! Thanks! God Bless! All the best!

Hello there! I don't drink water in the faucet provided by our local government here in my town. We drink mineral water from refilling station. But in some areas here in my rural town, they drink directly from pumps directly from under water. it is around 8feet deep. I tried drinking water from it and I think it taste sweet and pure. I can't describe it but it taste good. They say that we should drink water more than 8 glasses a day for our health. I can't detail into the benefits of it but it is needed by our body

Water is essencial to our life, but you can't drink too much water even the quality is good. You should not drink it if it is polluted, you can find other ways to get water because the polluted water can lead to many diseases even cancer. I know one place, there are many chemistry factories near this place, the villiagers have to dig very deep well to get the clean water, even so, the quality of the water is still not good. And many villiager got ill because of the water. So please drink the water without pollution!

Of course! It's vital to us, humans to drink plenty of water. But if you knew that your water is contaminated, would you risk your health? Hehehehe.. It's common sense, right? You have to drink water but you also must take into consideration, how safety it is for one's health. :D
