Why Filter Your Drinking Water?
Many freshwater lakes and streams have been found to be contaminated with various waterborne protozoa, bacteria and viruses. The most common among these is Giardia Lamblia. This is a microscopic parasite that invades the small intestine and can cause ailments such as nausea, dysentery, and severe abdominal cramps. This affliction, sometimes called Beaver Fever, can cause considerable discomfort.
