We don’t think much about the quality of our water in the United States. We expect to turn on the faucet and at the very least survive our drinking experience. But people in other countries don’t always have it as easy, says Green Water Technologies.

Q: Why is it dangerous to drink water in certain parts of the world?
Green Water Technologies: There are many third-world countries where people typically get their drinking and bathing water from the same bodies of water where livestock eat and dump waste. In remote regions of Africa, for example, this water contains microorganisms along with cholera and typhoid bacteria.
