A Treasure We Have Corrupted
Water is the source of all life on this planet. This includes us as well, as we simply cannot live nor function properly without water. Therefore, this planet is full of water. However, through time, we have managed to corrupt it the same way that we have destroyed almost everything on our planet, selfishly rushing into what we consider our progress. Due to the rise of industry and our constant neglect, we have poisoned our rivers, lakes, seas, and oceans. Factories have been expelling all of their wastes into the water, most of them without even thinking of investing in nature-friendly technology. Therefore, nowadays, it has almost come to a close. The water that has been the most important nutrient for all the generations of our kind living on this spinning rock for centuries, has become corrupted and we have to use the same industry which had polluted our water beforehand, in order to be able to buy it clean. Drinking water directly from what our suffering nature has to offer, or consuming the tap water we have at our homes, has long since become dangerous for our health. Rather, most of us buy bottled water on a daily basis, paying for sins of those who have corrupted it.
We Have Made Water Poison
During the years of our existence, people have managed to make water harmful to themselves. People all around the world, especially those in third world countries, die every day due to the side-effects of the corrupted water they were drinking.
Namely, our tap water contains chlorine, which is harmful for us, possibly causing heart problems and cholesterol rising. Further on, there are numerous chemicals like pesticides, feces and industrial waste, all reaching our body each time we decide to pour a glass of water from the sources in our home. Additionally, motor vehicles add on to the pollution by emitting poisonous gases which, through rain get both in our soil and our water. Agricultural industry contributes with their constant use of chemicals like pesticides and insecticides, expelling the extras directly into rivers and seas.
What Can Be Done?
There is no way that we can restore hundreds and hundreds of polluting years. Nor are we capable, since the industry continues destroying our nature for the sake of money. However, we can take care of ourselves and our families. Thus, we can purchase home water filters, which are not that expensive, but provide one with clean, safe to drink tap water. On the long run, this could save you significant amounts of money. Nevertheless, it can save you from all the negative effects polluted water can cause you, most of which are fatal after a longer period of consumption.
