Even in seemingly clean water you can find millions of bacteria. According to scientists, is to abandon the idea of total cleaning, because some bacteria have a positive effect on human health, says New Scientist.

Latgard Ruskin University of Michigan states: widespread practice of total water treatment using chlorine and other chemicals is almost ineffectual. Using modern technology, it is unrealistic to completely remove the bacteria from the water. But can be removed beneficial bacteria.

Example, nitrates that contaminate drinking water, may convert into harmless nitrogen through the use of some bacteria. Therefore, stimulating the growth of these microorganisms, will, on the contrary, increase the quality and safety of drinking water.

These proposals backed by statistics. So from April to October 2010, experts studied bacterial DNA in drinking water from Ann Arbor. The purpose of the analysis was to identify the specific bacteria in the water, the factors affecting the bacterial community.

Turned slightly changing the acidity of the water during water filtration or changing the method of cleaning the filter itself, can help dislodge the bacteria harmful.
