Water being a universal solvent dissolves various substances that it comes into its contact. This includes minerals, chemicals, soil and microorganisms. Hence, it is very rare to find pure natural water with nothing mixed in it. The water we drink also has various substances mixed into it, the exact composition of which depends on the source of water and the way it is handled and stored. Some of the minerals mixed in the water is good for the human body. However, water from certain sources may contain substances at high concentrations that can cause adverse effects on the human body. Generally, three types of substances – physical, chemical and biological – are found in water.
