We tend to ask this question, but the real one is whether we know the right answer...?
That is why I am going to develop this topic and find a suitable reply.. Let’s start by explaining how a water particle is built – it consists of 2 hydrogen atoms and an oxygen atom.
If we are considering only one water particle (H2O) – all elements are alike. However, if we compare two water particles which have been saturated by different elements, those particles will not stay the same. In my professional career, I have often heard that “water is just water – it’s wet and there is nothing to discuss”. I have to say that this kind of reasoning is far from being correct and, moreover, it may lead to a number of medical problems.
Water is of major importance to all living things – when it comes to adults, 60-70% of their body weight comes from water. Up to 75% is responsible for the body weight of children and up to 80% of newborn babies. Without water our bodies would not work properly as it carries nutrients for human cells. What is more, water is responsible for metabolic processes which could not happen otherwise. It is believed to be diluent. It means that nutrients, hormones, enzymes and other substances are dissolved in water and carried further. Water is responsible for maintaining the right and stable temperature of our bodies. In addition, it must be said that it would not be possible for our bodies to produce new cells and tissues without water. Those four functions of this life-giving fluid clearly show that either a human being or any other organism cannot survive devoid of water.
In the light of all those facts about water and its key functions in our bodies, we should be careful and choose the water we drink responsibly. In order to do this, we ought to know the rules which regulate Polish water market. These are:
The law of 25 August 2006 on the safety of food and nutrition
466th Regulation of the Minister for Public Health of 31 March 2011 on the natural mineral water, spring water and bottled water
565th Regulation of the Minister for Public Health of 13 April 2006 on the field of study needed for determining medicinal properties of natural raw materials and climate as well as their assessment criteria and a certificate confirming those healing qualities.
