It worries me at times, being his carer, but I just cannot get him to drink more water. I tried a natural ingredient cordial, rice milk, etc - but he just doesnt feel able to drink enough.
Having spent more than 2 decades in Australia, the climate out there taught me the benefits of drinking plenty of water, so I make sure I drink at least 1.5 liters per day, more in summer, here too. Out there, in summer, I needed to drink 2-3 liters a day. I just feel healthier if I drink plenty of water (has to be bottled, as I get ill from tap water).
wisdom wrote:Look up "do it yourself water distillation". Its really easy to make. You buy two large pots, connect them with a tube, and boil water in one. It distills into the other giving you water free from 99.99% of toxins. You could make a few gallons in a day and use it for cooking and drinking throughout the week.
Brita water filters don't remove all things, nor is bottled water ideal because its in plastic. That plastic is transported in trucks that might not have cooling, and when it gets to a certain temperature can release chemicals into the water. Plus not all filtering methods are created equal. Distilled water is the best, and uses the same system that nature does to make rain.
