Water heals our entire body but at the same time if the water is unclean or contaminated, then it should be avoided at all costs because lack of hygienic water can cause a lot of health issues like

  • Cholera
  • Hepatitis

There’s a long procedure from extracting water to opening the tap and drinking directly from it and that procedure must be followed at all costs.

De-contamination of water is extremely necessary and avoiding contaminated water is very necessary as well and water work as an anti-rust agent. (Dezhong, L., 2004)

Water- An Anti-Rust Agent

After having a long hard day, why do we directly run towards the fridge to grab cold water? Why do we drink gallons and gallons of water after working out?

When a machine is working for a long time, it starts to rust; you will start noticing big brown and rough patches on the machine if it has not been properly maintained or oiled for a long time.

To avoid such corrosion on machines people usually oil their machines from time to time. In the exact same way, our body needs maintenance from time to time, and avoiding proper maintenance can corrode our body which will prevent us from working in an efficient manner. So yes, Water Work as An Anti-Rust of our body, it prevents it from working inadequately and helps the human body to maintain its entire system. (Watanabe, S., Kawahara, H. and Kuramochi, T., 1991)
