EVERY living organism on this planet must have water, or the moisture in the air from water vapour, to live.
Without water we will dehydrate and die.
However, pure, unadulterated water in today's world is a rare commodity.
Yet it is one of the vital ingredients in maintaining our health.
Pollution from industry and farming has poisoned our waterways, and water authorities, in an attempt to solve this problem, have contaminated our drinking water with a variety of harmful chemicals to inhibit fungal and bacterial growth.
So what do we do to overcome this problem?
Water does not need to be offered in a drinking glass.
It can be obtained from the skins of fresh fruit and vegetables when eaten.
This is not only the purest form in which we can obtain this precious asset, but is, indeed, the ''nectar of the gods''.
If human beings were able to maintain an ideal diet, it would comprise 80 per cent fresh fruit and vegetables and would rarely require supplementary liquids.
However, an ideal diet, like pure water, is also rare in our modern society.
For a small investment, you can purchase a water filter.
Most of them, however, are incapable of rendering supplied water safe for drinking.
Cheap filters usually only succeed in removing dirt particles.
The expensive counterparts can do a great deal more, including sterilising the water with an ultraviolet light beam.
However, the better the filter the more it will cost you.
Boiling drinking water only kills fungus or bacteria that have succeeded in beating the chemicals used at the water treatment works.
In fact, boiling water that has been treated with fluoride only tends to increase its concentration in the water.
Collecting rainwater, especially in city areas, is little better.
With so much pollution in our atmosphere from industry, motor vehicles, power generation and so forth, it would need to rain steadily for a number of days before the water could be considered safe to collect.
Even then, this would only apply to outer-city and rural areas.
We can obtain the pure water we need by eating more fresh fruit and vegetables, or by drinking their extracted juices.
In addition to eating fruit and vegetable juices, you can make your own biochemically-free water easily and quickly.
The first step is to sprout some wheat seeds.
Soak one or two tablespoons of seed in a large jar of water, overnight.
Drain and rinse three or four times.
Place the jar in a dark cupboard, rinsing four or five more times a day, until the grass shoots begin to develop.
Remove to a sunny spot, continue to rinse, until the grass turns green.
Cut off the growing tips of the shoots and add to a container of water.
After about twenty hours remove the shoots and you will have pure water, tasting unlike water you have ever tasted before.
It is biochemically free of any substances from our polluting civilisation.
