Dr. Ellie’s Health Tips:

Health Tip of the Month: In thirdworld countries, sunlight exposure is often used to help make water safer, but this natural disinfection process can take anywhere from six to 48 hours (depending on cloud cover and so on). Researchers have discovered that adding lime juice to the water, and then exposing it to sunlight, make this disinfection method even more powerful, significantly reducing levels of bacteria like E. coli in just 30 minutes. Natural disinfection processes like these could have an extremely beneficial impact in countries that don’t have ready access to clean drinking water.” Implications for use of a squirt or two in a glass of your drinking water are also beneficial. Lime juice will act as a disinfectant and also add needed electrolytes and vitamins to your water. When you are in a restaurant, ask for a lime wedge instead of a lemon. If you have any doubt of the water’s safety, this little trick should ease your mind.
