Water Benefits Health News, Issue #8

May 1, 2012

Hello, Water Friend,

I apologize for missing last month's issue. Sometimes life brings challenges that supersede writing newsletters. I am sure you can relate . . .

I am glad to be back at writing and researching and have a new article to share about drinking rainwater. I am sensing more and more the need for water conservation. Many countries are way ahead of the United States in understanding the need to protect this valuable resource. And I think it is time we increase awareness on the topics of water conservation and water pollution.

Thus, in this issue we are focusing on using rainwater for water conservation. In next month's issue I will discuss the health advantages and disadvantages of drinking rainwater.

To your health and wellness,

Nancy Hearn, CNC

For us city folk, it sounds kind of gross. But in fact, rainwater is pretty clean and does not contain most of the contaminants found in groundwater.

Countries like Australia and some European countries have implemented government policies to collect rainwater. These countries use a technique called rainwater harvesting, which makes drinking rainwater safe and affordable. Other countries use simpler techniques for collecting rainwater.

Millions of people in developing countries are drinking rainwater. They will usually collect it in a rain barrel or cistern. This water is cleaner than most of the nearby water supplies that might have been contaminated by waste or pollution. However, it still contains some pollutants and bacteria.
