An old story tells of a camel that wanted to put his nose inside the tent one night. He asked his master for permission, telling him that it was cold and stormy outside. The master agreed, and went back to sleep. A little later, the man awakened to find the camel’s head and neck had followed his nose into the tent. The camel was moving his head from side to side. He asked permission this time to put his forelegs in the tent so he could stand more comfortably. Soon, he asked to move into the tent completely so the flap could close. At each request, the man said, “Yes,” and moved to make room. Once the camel was in the tent, the man went back to sleep. The next time he awakened, he was outside in the storm and the camel had the tent to itself.
Progressively, we have given our government energy to permit added substances to enter our drinking water. Bit by bit, we have watched them make remittance for contaminants and microorganisms. To what extent until the camel is totally in the tent?
Good water quality and its importance is a topic that needs more attention than it is getting. If you are an adult, your body is losing about 10 glasses of water daily. That water must be replaced, but thought should be taken as to what is used to replace the loss.
