Keep Your Drinking Water Safe from Bacteria

The World Health Organization (WHO) released a report in 2009, which was quoted in The Lancet, declaring water-borne diseases one of the leading causes of death and illness in the world. The worst part is that children are the major victims of water-borne diseases like cholera, typhoid, dysentery, and hepatitis, leading to horrifying under-five mortality figures.

Antimicrobial properties of silver and copper Ware are now being realized more widely

Whether or not the source of the water or its means of transportation are contaminated, if you keep water in a covered copper vessel or a silver glass all night before drinking in the morning; you assure your loved ones and yourself the gift of safe drinking water. This means that even if the drinking water has been stored for more than a day — in some instances up to a week — it stays safe.
