Shower Bath?

We have seen many movies where heroes or heroines were killed under shower. We surely wouldn’t like to be dying that way. Intellectuals all around the world are into the research of use and abuse of water. Colorado institute had made extensive studies on shower bathing and results showed that shower not only showers water on your body but also showers slow killing bacterium on your face and enters your lungs. They are the breeding places for bacterium which could blast when water passes through them. This can cause cough and other related respiratory problems

Researches also say that if you are taking first shower you are probably getting high load of Mycobacterium avium, which can be very unhealthy; some precedents were also noticed for concern regarding pathogens and shower heads. For their study, the researchers, in advanced countries where it is said that the quality of water is good, had tested some showers. 35 to 40% of them were found having this problem, which had given lung infections as well.

There can be many ways to avoid this. Let some water pass before you take shower.

Can we afford it when we hear about water cuts and read save water hoardings, especially after reading letter from great grandson (see previous article).

Average shower (mind you these are not rain showers) consumes about 7 litres per minute and corporation gives you only 45 litres per day. Jaago India Jaago
