Water accounts for over 70% of your body? We are comprised mostly of water. And further more, our blood mineral content is strikingly similar to salt water. A healthy water intake can help us in many ways. You can think better. A fully hydrated brain actually works better. Strength increases. Did you know that your muscles work better when your body is fully hydrated? Immunity - even your immune system can function better. Flush junk out of your system. A fully hydrated body is better at getting rid of the things it DOESN'T need. You'd be amazed at how much more energy you can have when you drink adequate amounts of water.The United Nations has designated March 22nd World Water Day, as a means of focusing attention on the importance of a clean water supply and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources.  This year's theme is "Water Quality: Clean Water for a Healthy World."

Safe drinking water is fundamental to healthy lives and prosperous communities.  Every person needs 20 to 40 liters of freshwater per day for drinking, cooking, and sanitation needs alone.  Yet some 1.1 billion people world-wide do not have access to safe, clean drinking water. As a result, many people become sick, some lives are shortened, and some die.  

Half of the world's hospital beds are filled with people suffering from water-borne diseases. According to the World Health Organization, each year, an estimated 4 billion people get sick with diarrhea as a result of drinking unsafe water.  More than 2 million of them die; mostly children under the age of 5, most of them poor, and most of them living in the developing world.

In developing countries, 80 percent of all waste is discharged untreated, often because of lack of regulations and resources. As populations and industry expand, they add to that equation new sources of pollution and increased demand for clean water.  Human and environmental health suffers as a result, and future agricultural and drinking water supplies are put at risk.

The United States invests hundreds of millions of dollars every year in water sector activities around the world. The United States Agency for International Development, or USAID, and the Millennium Challenge Corporation undertake a number of programs to expand access to clean drinking water for those in need, as well as to make more efficient the use of water for food production and economic growth, and work for more sustainable management of watersheds and ecosystems.  

The United States is also working to improve water quality by expanding access to sanitation services, helping improve hygiene practices, and finding ways to reduce pollution and improve waste management programs.    

The ability of a society to develop is critically dependent on sustainable and sufficient supplies of high-quality water, and good sanitation services and practices.  We can help solve the problems, but in the end, change must come from within, with strong investments not only in infrastructure, but also in local governance and  capacity building.thank you

 protecting our water and our health from pollution. And with your continued support and involvement, even more is yet to come. Clean Water Action and Clean Water Fund helped lead the fight to stop toxic dumping by power plants into our rivers and streams in 2013. Before we launched that campaign, most people didn’t realize that power plants are the #1 source of toxic water pollution, often discharging unlimited amounts mercury, arsenic, lead and other chemicals into our water.Access to safe water for drinking and cooking and adequate sanitation, is a leading global public health challenge and a major contributor to disease.providing safe, clean water and sanitation fast, even in the most difficult circumstances. And they ensure that people understand the importance of maintaining good hygiene and sanitation practices to prevent the spread of water borne disease.. Safe water means better health.........................
