    You’re mostly made of this

    Humans are made mostly of water, and many survival settings have either a lack of it or questionable quality. Therefore, it’s important that the water you find is safe to drink, but even the clearest  mountain stream may harbor organisms like Giardia and Entamoeba that can cause serious illness. In natural disasters like floods, there’s water everywhere, but almost always highly contaminated.

    In this video, Nurse Amy steps in front of the camera to give a review of some water filter and storage options.
