A Study On Effects Of Hard Water On Human Health





Water, hard water, human health, save water, re-cycle water


Water, a universal solvent is transparent, colourless, odourless and tasteless chemical substance. Water is essential for hydration hence needed for survival of life. According to the Bureau of Indian Standard, water having the value of total dissolved solid greater than 500 ppm may be moderately hard or hard and this water can affect the human health on continuous consumption for a long time. Quality and quantitative frameworks of physicochemical and biological components of drinking water are required to regularly pay attention the quality of water from different sources of supply.  This paper aims to explore the health effects of hard water and its components
