Bacteria instead of vitamins?
While you are indulging in an energy drink, others are involuntarily absorbing dangerous bacteria from the only available water source - if they even have access to water. Approximately 3.5 million people die each year on account of water shortage and polluted drinking water.
Without water there is no life.
While some regions are being buried under floods of water, others are suffering from increasing aridity. In both cases, the affected people face the same problem: a lack of clean drinking water. Furthermore, they often lack water for sanitary uses as well as for agriculture.
Humans can survive up to four weeks without nutrition, but only three to four days without drinking water. Lack of fluids dehydrates our bodies and leads to significant health problems such as back pain, a weak immune system and possibly even heart attacks.
It is not only the direct lack of water that leads to problems. If not enough water is available, the respective country's nutritional situation would be gravely affected.
