How to avoid the dangers of polluted water when traveling
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 80% of all travel-related illnesses are caused by contaminated water. WHO research shows that half of all travelers suffer from diarrhea due to drinking pre-orephonated water.
It is recommended to avoid tap water and ice cubes if the quality of the water is suspected to be poor. You should only drink bottled water if it has been treated industrially.
