The Liver is so to speak the body’s waste purification plant. Many toxins or poisons reach our bloodstream when we inhale or swallow them. Others pass through our skin while still others are released by dying cells or invading bacteria.  Many of theses toxins pass through the Liver. Here they are broken down and removed from the blood before they can do their dirty work. Toxins lurk in prescribed medications, food additives and air pollutants and these may be impossible to avoid completely. Our Livers therefore work double duty to compensate for bad diet, bad judgement and basically could use some extra help. Antioxidant vitamins such as C E and Beta Carotene. Minerals such as Zinc and Selenium along with herbs such as milk thistle, dandelion root and schizandra might help protect our liver cells while ridding our bodies of poisons. Lifestyle choices and regular doctor visits are also part of a healthy Liver friendly lifestyle.

Water purification is the removal of contaminants from raw water to produce clean drinking water. This is done for human consumption and  Industrial use. Such

substances as Parasites , Algae, Bacteria and viruses are all removed . Many of these contaminants can be dangerous. This also depends on the quality standards as well as other general contaminants that are removed to improve the waters smell, taste, and appearance.  A small amount of disinfectant is usually left in the water intentionally at the end  of the treatment process to reduce the risk of re contamination in the distribution system.  Groundwater is cheaper to treat but aquifers have limited output and can take thousands of years to recharge. Simple procedures such as boiling or using household charcoal filters are not sufficient for treating water from an unknown source. Even natural spring water must be tested before determining what kind of treatment is needed.
