Not likely: This actually is an interesting question. There are no guarantees in life and you could get an amoeba at any time. However, it would be really unlikely with first potable and then filtered water. I would assume you are using clean municipal water and then extra filtering it with Brita. So, the risk is low, but there are just no guarantees: nothing in medicine is ever 100% ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Water filters: Most home water filters do not filter out all contaminants. The indiviual manufacturers will list on their packaging what they filter. In addition, some soluble chemicals, salts, bacteria, and viruses could potentially not be filtered. There are many filtering and water treatment products out there but you need to check with each manufacturer. ...Read more
Unlikely allergy: Water (regardless of salinity) is unlikely to trigger allergic skin reactions. There is a very rare type of "physical" hives called "aquagenic urticaria" where tap water causes hives on the skin. Also, both cold or hot water immersion or skin contact can cause hives. These are more common than aquagenic urticaria. ...Read more

All : All plants participate in photosynthesis, a chemical reaction that converts carbon dioxide into organic compounds such as sugars, using the energy from sunlight. In general the more chlorophyll present (the substance that provides the green color to leaves), the more photosynthesis that will be taking place. Therefore as a general rule, the larger and leafier the plant, the more photosynthesis that will be occurring in the presence of sunlight. However, having more indoor plants will not result in a significantly lower carbon dioxide concentration than the rest of the atmosphere, as indoor air is always in communication with the rest of the environment. Also, carbon dioxide at these concentrations is not harmful to humans, and having indoor plants does not result in significant air detoxification that can be attributed to any meaningful health benefits. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Loaded question-: Typically, yes - the water is usually free of germs, but not the button or the lever that allows water to flow into your cup, additionally, it is difficult to vouch for the dispenser that might have been violated by some brash employee who didn't use a cup and decides to take a "swig" using his lips that may have inadvertently touch the lip of the water spout.....Enjoy. ...Read more

No: Cooling water does nothing for removing chemical or biological contaminants. If the water sits overnight, larger particles may drop to the bottom, but the water will not be purified. For that one needs a filtration/ purification system, depending on what contaminants/pollutants are present. Have the water tested to find out what it contains & then contact experts for treatment. ...Read more
Son is 2y old,still boiling the drinking water for him(although bottled water),in egypt afraid of water even bottled,is okay? Or water loses sodium?
Boiled is safer: Water that has been boiled is safer, because germs and parasites have been cooked. People get their sodium from salt in food. In modern societies, we already eat too much sodium, and therefore need no additional sodium from our water. Other ways to make water safe include using special water filters and adding a specific tiny amount of bleach to partially treated water. ...Read more
