Impure Water leads to Cancer! - Clarification ?

Water is an essential part of our lives. The human body itself is made up of over 70% water. Every healthy diet includes the daily consumption of water on an average of 5-6 liters for a healthy life. If you drink too little water, there are chances of severe complications arising out of dehydration.

What if we told you that drinking water can lead to cancer? Do not get alarmed. This can happen only if the water you're drinking is contaminated.

We often take it for granted that the water we are drinking is pure and free from contaminants. But how sure can you actually be? Studies by leading research agencies in India have found that most of the drinking water sources available are contaminated and contain at least one substance or chemical that is beyond the permissible level fit for human consumption.

Due to rapid industrialization and urbanization, it is becoming increasingly difficult to clear and dispose of waste in a safe manner. Often, factories resort to dumping untreated waste directly into water bodies or into ground pits. This results in dangerous chemicals percolating into the soil and subsequently into the water.

Chemicals such as trihalomethanes, halogenic acetic acids, benzene, perchlorate, radionuclides, radium, arsenic, lead mercury, etc. are all known to cause cancer in some form or the other, if ingested in sizeable quantities by humans. Even if not consumed in large quantities, these can have many side effects such as stomach problems, fertility issues, kidney stones, diarrhea, thyroid issues, vomiting and irritation of the skin and eyes.

Also, while chlorine is a wonder chemical, which can purify water; it can have adverse effects on your health. Chlorine purification can often result in byproducts such as halomethanes, which are scientifically proven to cause cancer. As such, try to avoid drinking water that's been purified with chlorine, especially water that's been treated with industrial grade chlorine.
