View Full Version : Water in different forms

07-24-2007, 06:49 AM
As-Salaamu Aliakum,

The Prophet (SAW) said: The best drink is water. Please read below.

This is a very good article. Not only about the warm water after your meal, but about heart attacks. The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals, not cold water, maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while eating.
For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine . Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.
A serious note about heart attacks - You should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting. Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line.
You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack. Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms. 60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let's be careful and be aware. The more we know, the better chance we could survive.

Amazing Water Facts

Presently, 1.1 billion people lack access to improved water supply and 2.4 billion to improved sanitation . Unless action is stepped up, the number of people who lack access to improved water supply could increase to 2.3 billion by 2025 .

Of all water on earth, 97.5% is salt water, and of the remaining 2.5% fresh water, some 70% is frozen in the polar icecaps. The other 30% is mostly present as soil moisture or lies in underground aquifers. In the end, less than 1% of the world's fresh water (or about 0.007% of all water on earth) is readily accessible for direct human uses. It is found in lakes, rivers, reservoirs and in underground sources shallow enough to be tapped at affordable cost .

If all the earth's water fit in a gallon jug, available fresh water would equal just over a tablespoon.

A person can live about a month without food, but only about a week without water .

A person needs 4 to 5 gallons of water per day to survive .

The average American individual uses 100 to 176 gallons of water at home each day .

The average African family uses about 5 gallons of water each day .

More than 200 million hours are spent each day by women and female children to collect water from distant, often polluted sources .

Approximately 60 to 70% of the rural population in the developing world have neither access to a safe and convenient source of water nor a satisfactory means of waste disposal .

Water systems fail at a rate of 50% or higher .

According to the UN, 20% of the world's population in 30 countries face water shortages. This number is expected to rise to 30% of the world's population in 50 countries in 2025 .

Some of the world's largest cities, including Beijing, Buenos Aires, Dhaka, Lima, and Mexico City, depend heavily on groundwater for their water supply. It is unlikely that dependence on aquifers, which take many years to recharge, will be sustainable .

Poor people in the developing world pay on average 12 times more per liter of water than fellow citizens connected to municipal systems; these poverty-stricken people use less water, much of which is dirty and contaminated .

Every $1 invested in children, including money to improve access to clean water and sanitation, saved $7 in the cost of long-term public services .

Water-related Disease Facts

The Crisis of Unsafe Drinking Water

Each year more than five million people die from water-related disease .

The leading cause of child death in the world is diarrhea .

UNICEF estimates that in 1993 alone, 3.8 million children under the age of five died from diarrhea resulting from ingesting waterborne pathogens .

Of the 37 major diseases in developing countries, 21 are water and sanitation related .

The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 80% of all sickness in the world is attributable to unsafe water and sanitation .

WHO also estimates that each year, throughout the world, children under five suffer 1.5 billion episodes of diarrhea, approximately four million of which are fatal .

If no action is taken to address unmet basic human needs for water, as many as 135 million people will die from water-related diseases by 2020.

Even if the explicit Millennium Goals announced by the United Nations in 2000 are achieved, between 34 and 76 million people will perish from water-related diseases by 2020.

No single type of intervention has greater overall impact upon the national development and public health than does the provision of safe drinking water and the proper disposal of human excreta .

Human health improvements are influenced not only by the use of clean water, but also by personal hygiene habits and the use of sanitation facilities .

Water, sanitation, and hygiene interventions have been shown to reduce sickness from diarrhea on average between a quarter and a third .

Six to nine million people are estimated to be blind from trachoma. The population at risk for this disease is 500 million. This disease can be reduced 25% by provision of adequate quantities of water .

In reducing the toll of sickness and death from diarrhea, the supply of adequate quantities of water is usually more important than improving its quality. This is because the organisms that cause diarrhea can be spread through many routes besides drinking water, and increased quantities of water can improve household and personal hygiene to prevent these .

About a third of the population of the developing world is infected with intestinal worms that can be controlled through better water, hygiene, and sanitation. These parasites can lead to malnutrition, anemia, and retarded growth .

200 million people in the world are infected with schistosomiasis, of whom 20 million suffer severe consequences. This disease can be reduced 77% from well designed water and sanitation interventions .

At any given time, half the people in developing countries are suffering from water-related diseases .

More people die each year from unsafe water than from all forms of violence, including war.
