The scientists examined the water after her cleaning and came to a disappointing conclusion
A new study of a large group of scientists ended with the verdict that the purification process of water can make it almost toxic to the body. Information on the work of specialists is told in a new publication in Newswise.
The authors of the project, which investigates the properties of water after treatment began, the researchers from the University of California at Berkeley and Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.
They found that the accepted practice of water purification can be extremely dangerous to the human body.
The experts came to the conclusion that most of the existing methods for purifying water from natural sources for use in human life, not destroy it contains harmful substances. Instead, scientists say, potentially harmful components transformirovalsya acquire a different molecular structure.
“In the water purification process is the development of harmful substances. Sometimes these are formed in the course of cleaning substances are very toxic,” said study co-author Dr. Carsten Prass.
According to academic experts, most commonly in the water of natural reservoirs meet phenols are chemical compounds that occur in the natural environment due to the activities of the various manufacturing enterprises. When the phenolic compounds affected by treatments, their components transformirovalsya and become more toxic, concluded the authors of the project.
The action transformed phenols was confirmed experimentally on mice. It turned out that these compounds have a strong negative impact on the liver and lead to metabolic disorders lead to obesity and diabetes.
The level of damage from modified phenols in water can be compared with the harm cigarette smoke or automobile exhaust, said biologists.
