Staying Hydrated Has Significant Health Benefits
Science and poetry both tell us that water is essential for life. Water quality is an important issue, but not one that people may much attention to, until it becomes a problem. Chlorine removal and water softener and whole house filtration systems make sure that the water you use for drinking, cooking, bathing and cleaning is clean, without any harmful residues. The reverse osmosis process is a versatile and widely used method of water filtration. It removes large particles and impurities from water to make it suitable for drinking and other purposes.
Water is essential for survival
About two-thirds of the human body is made up of water. Every single one of the processes in the human body uses water. This is why dehydration, when it occurs, can produce serious consequences. Loss of energy and mental clarity are some early warning signs of dehydration. If water loss reaches higher levels, up to 9-12% of the total body weight, it can be fatal.
On the other hand, dehydration is easily corrected. In one study, people suffering from headaches experienced “total relief” from pain within half an hour of drinking about two cups of water.
Staying hydrated and healthy
Beyond just plain survival, drinking water has many health benefits, including weight loss and reduced risk for many diseases like cancer. A new study has found that drinking 16 ounces of water facilitates weight loss. And dietitians have long known that if you drink a glass of water half an hour before a meal, you feel fuller and more capable of making better food choices.
Staying hydrated also has the benefit of reducing the risk of serous diseases like cancer. Researchers have found that drinking enough water reduces the risk of colon cancer by 45%, and the risk of bladder cancer by 50%. It can also reduce the risk of breast cancer.
Treatment for hard water: ion exchange and reverse osmosis
Hard water is water that has a high mineral content, most often because it has passed through chalk and limestone deposits. As many as 85% of all households in the U.S. have hard water. Hard water is not known to have any adverse effects on human health but it plays havoc with the plumbing. The mineral content is responsible for the build up of calcium and other deposits on pipes and boilers, which can lead to serious problems.
Hard water treatment systems for homes and industrial buildings can solve the problem through ion exchange. Water treatment systems like chlorine removal, reverse osmosis and ion exchange can make nearly all kinds of water suitable for domestic and industrial use.
