Most precious resource on Earth is Freshwater

With the ever growing Earth population and expansion of urbanization centers it is vital that we find new clean ways of using the Earth most precious resource. This precious resource is usable water. Although the earth has a surface water coverage of 70 percent and fresh water is 2.5 percent of that volume, the usable water on Earth is less than 1 percent. If all the water on earth was down scaled to fit in a 1 gallon container only 1 table spoon out the gallon is usable water.

Earth's fresh water supply

The majority of total freshwater on Earth, about 69 percent, is held in ice caps and glaciers. If all the glaciers ice melted on earth sea levels would rise approximately 220 feet. This of course would not add to the available fresh water as it would mix with the salt water of the oceans and disrupt the balance and current flows changing the weather patterns on earth.

We are fortunate in North America as 90 percent of all Americans receive their drinking water from a public water supply compared to 700 million people in 43 countries that suffer from water scarcity. By 2025 1.8 billion people will be living in regions of countries with absolute usable water scarcity, and two-thirds of the worlds population could be living with water stressed conditions.

Approximately 70 percent of the human body is water. Health researchers have suggested that we drink 8-eight oz glasses of water (2 liters or half gallon) as we lose over 64 ounces of water every day due to perspiration vapor exchange of our skin. Insufficient water consumption can put us at risk for various types of cancer. Therefore hydration is critical for our blood circulation to allow our immune system cells to reach damage tissues in sufficient numbers. Our sense of thirst ensure that we maintain a balance of hydration and nutrients, such as sodium, that crucial for healthy functioning cells of our body.

Legally safe water

Legally safe and totally safe drinkable water mean 2 different things to the EPA. The clean water act regulates 80 contaminates in drinking potable water and if your water contains less than the maximum acceptable levels of those contaminants your water is safe. Yet, the EPA is investigating over 10,000 other contaminates that are not regulated and are known to be in tap water. There are over 12,000 toxic c
