Making Water Safe in an Emergency

In an emergency, water contaminated with germs can often be made safe to drink by boiling, adding disinfectants, or filtering. IMPORTANT: Water contaminated with fuel, toxic chemicals, or radioactive material will not be made safe by boiling or disinfection. Use bottled water or a different source of water if you know or suspect that your water might be contaminated with fuel or toxic chemicals. In emergency situations, use bottled water if possible; bottled water is the safest choice for drinking and all other uses. If bottled water is not available, the following methods can help make your water safe to drink.   *Note: These methods are listed in order of what is most effective at making your water safe. 1. Boiling Printable Fact Sheet: Making Water Safe pdf icon[625 KB] (English) Printable Fact Sheet: Making Water Safe pdf icon[627 KB] (Español) If you don’t have safe bottled water, you should boil your water to make it safe to drink. Boiling is the surest method to kill disease-causing organisms, including viruses, bacteria, and parasites. You can improve the flat taste of boiled water by pouring it from one container to another and then allowing it to stand for a few hours; OR by adding a pinch of salt for each quart or liter of boiled water. If the water is cloudy: Filter it through a clean cloth, paper towel, or coffee filter OR allow it to settle. Draw off the clear water. Bring the clear water to a rolling boil for 1 minute (at elevations above 6,500 feet, boil for three minutes). Let the boiled water cool. Store the boiled water in clean sanitized containers with tight covers. If the water is clear: Bring the clear water to a rolling boil for 1 minute (at elevations above 6,500 feet, boil for three minutes). Let the boiled water cool. Store the boiled water in clean sanitized containers with tight covers. 2. Disinfectants If you don’t have safe bottled water and if boiling is not possible, you often can make small quantities of filtered and settled water safer to drink by using a chemical disinfectant such as unscented household chlorine bleach. Disinfectants can kill most harmful or disease-causing viruses and bacteria, but are not as effective in controlling more resistant organisms, such as the parasites Cryptosporidium and Giardia. Chlorine dioxide tablets can be effective against Cryptosporidium if the manufacturer’s instructions are followed correctly. If the water is contaminated with a chemical or radioactive material, adding a disinfectant will not make it drinkable. To disinfect waterContinue Reading

Water and Hair Growth: Are They Connected?

Thirsting for a natural way to grow your hair? Simple—drink more water. Keeping hydrated with H2O improves skin appearance, boosts brain function, aids in digestion and weight loss and yes, helps your hair grow. The age-old question “how much water should I drink in a day?” is often and automatically answered with 8 glasses or 2 liters a day. Scientists and physicians, however, say it really all depends on your body type, activity, and health.  While 8 glasses can be a good benchmark, one report found that the majority of people are drinking an average of 2.5 cups a day with no real negative consequences. Essentially, drinking enough water allows every system in the body to function properly and since we are made up of about 60% water, it’s best to gulp generously. From skin to scalp, water offers us an easy and au naturel way to up our beauty game, especially when it comes to growing hair, keeping the scalp healthy and maintaining a luscious, touchable texture. In fact, water accounts for almost 25% of the weight of a single strand of hair. Are you hydrating enough? Turns out, the secret to luscious, long locks is one (or two) glasses away. Water and your hair Drinking enough water helps energize and support hair growth from root to tip. It also helps prevent split ends and a brittle hair texture, as well as fosters a healthier scalp meaning you’ll have fewer chances of developing problems like dryness, itchiness, or dandruff. Just as water hydrates and replenishes the skin, it does the same for the scalp and in turn, your lovely locks. We naturally lose fluids throughout the day. On average, for active women and men, this can result in up to 1-2 liters of water or more, especially after intense physical activity. Ultimately, replenishing ourselves with water is a vital healthy habit we can all incorporate. Water and weight loss If you’re looking for a way to spur hair health and overall health, water is crucial. Forget asking yourself “how much water should I drink in a day?” in terms of measurement, and flip your thinking to “I should drink more water today” and manifest those positive thoughts. Hydrating properly has been proven to help people lose weight and even if that isn’t your goal, drinking water helps keep you feeling full and ups your metabolic rate. Studies have found that half a litre or 17 ouncesContinue Reading

Yes, drinking more water may help you lose weight

Can drinking more water really lead to weight loss? While no one’s saying you’ll wake up lighter simply by sipping water before bed (or any other time of day), evidence supports the water–weight loss connection: After all, 60% of your body is composed of water, meaning that the clear, calorie-free liquid plays a role in just about every bodily function. The more hydrated you are, research suggests, the more efficiently your body works at tasks that range from thinking to burning body fat. Science suggests that water can help with weight loss in a variety of ways. It may suppress your appetite, boost your metabolism, and make exercise easier and more efficient, all of which could contribute to results on the scale. While countless factors, behaviors, and predispositions can affect your body weight, if your goal is long-term, moderate weight loss, making sure you’re hydrated could be a good place to begin. Seven reasons drinking more water may help you lose weight: 1. Water may naturally suppress your appetite. When you realize you’re hungry, your first impulse may be to find food. But eating may not be the answer. “Thirst, which is triggered by mild dehydration, is often mistaken for hunger by the brain,” says Melina Jampolis, an internist and board-certified physician nutrition specialist. “You may be able to decrease appetite by drinking water if you are, in fact, low in water not calories.” What’s more, drinking water can promote satiation because it passes through the system quickly, stretching the stomach. “This sends messages to your brain signaling fullness,” Jampolis says. Elizabeth Huggins, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist at Hilton Head Health, adds that though the results are temporary, “consuming water shortly before eating may help decrease food intake.” Research supports the theory: People who drank two glasses of water immediately before a meal in a small 2016 study ate 22% less than those who didn’t drink any water prior to eating. About two cups should fill your stomach enough for your brain to register fullness. 2. Drinking water may stimulate your metabolism. It’s possible that drinking water stimulates your body’s metabolism and energy expenditure, ultimately helping with weight management, according to Huggins. In an eight-week study published in 2013, when 50 girls with excess weight drank about two cups of water half an hour before breakfast, lunch, and dinner without any additional dietary changes, they lost weight and saw reductions in body mass index and body compositionContinue Reading
