Water is not the only thing that you should know about drinking water.
But it’s a lot easier to find out how safe your water is than you might think.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) recently issued a warning that the levels of contaminants in water across the world are “dangerously high” and there is a “high risk” that these levels could be the result of human-induced climate change.
The new research by the University of Reading has revealed that the amount of metals in drinking water is not as low as previously thought.
The study also revealed that while some water sources in the UK are being monitored to protect people from harmful levels of metals, the UK Government is failing to properly assess whether their water is as safe as they claim.

According to the World Health Organization, the amount that people need to drink to meet their daily requirements varies by country.
The UN’s World Health Report 2014 recommends that each adult should drink around 2,000ml of water a day for general health, and 2,300ml for people with chronic conditions.
But the average Briton needs around 7,000 ml of water to meet the same standard, according to the Daily Mail.
The WHO recommends that everyone has a filter, which should filter out around 95% of the water in their homes.
Some experts believe that if you are concerned about your water, you should try to find a water purification device that can purify water to 90-95% before drinking it.
However, a recent study published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives found that only around 5% of people who use a filter do so to reduce the amount in their drinking water, while in other countries, like France, the number of people using water purifiers is growing rapidly.
2/9 What does the EU mean when it says “EUR”?
Eurostat, the EU’s statistical office, uses the term “EU” when referring to the Union as a whole.
This is often shortened to just EU in EU-speak, although the actual EU stands for European Economic Area.
The EU’s 27 member states are divided into two main geographical areas – the Eastern and Western – with each having a different name.
For example, the French and Spanish versions of EU are the same thing.
Each member state has its own laws and regulations, but the European Court of Justice (ECJ) has the final say on all EU law.
In practice, EU law is binding on all member states, but not on the individual member states.
The European Commission sets the laws for all 27 member States, but many individual countries have varying rules about how they apply in practice.

3/9 Who decides what kind of water goes into our drinks?
According in EU law each country decides for itself which kinds of water it wants to use for drinking and wastewater treatment, as well as for industrial uses, when it comes to pesticides and other chemicals.
However the Commission also sets limits on which chemicals can enter the EU market.
In 2015 the EU introduced a proposal to limit the amount, type and density of chemicals that can be used in drinking-water, wastewater treatment and biosolids production.
The proposals are currently under review.
What this means is that the Commission is looking at whether it is in the public interest to increase restrictions on chemicals used in food production and whether these limits should be increased.
What is the Commission doing?
The Commission is the EU executive arm.
It is the executive branch responsible for the implementation of EU law and decides on its own policies on a wide range of issues, from the protection of consumers and the environment, to the economy and jobs.
The job of the Commission’s chief executive is to set the Commission´s priorities for the next five years.
The Commission has two main tasks: ensuring the Union’s economic and social policies remain in line with the objectives set out in the Union´s Charter, and ensuring effective coordination between its Member States.
For its part, the Commission enforces EU laws and makes decisions in accordance with EU law in matters such as competition policy, financial regulation, migration policy, the environment and workers’ rights.
The three main bodies of the European Commission are the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) and the European Nuclear Safety Agency (ENISA).
4/9 Why are some chemicals more toxic than others?
Some chemicals are known to be more toxic to humans or animals than others.
These include cadmium, lead, cadmides and vinyl chloride.
When these chemicals are combined in large quantities with heavy metals, they form a pooling agent, which when exposed to air or water can cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm.
These chemicals form compounds called inorganic or inorganic salts, which are known as inorganic disulphide salts.
The inorganic and inorganic
