Water Is More Valuable Than Gold

water is more valuable than gold

Have you ever thought that water is more valuable than gold? Did you know that South Africa is rated the 39th ‘driest’ country in the world? That’s according to a report compiled by the Food and Agriculture Organisation. Our most valuable resource is water, and needs to be preserved at all costs. Our supply is finite. The recent water crisis experienced over parts of the country, especially the Western Cape, gave South Africans a glimpse into a future without adequate water to live on. By having a closer look at the crucial role it plays in all aspects of our daily lives ranging from our diets to our personal hygiene we will gain a better understanding as to why preservation is so important.

Water gives life to the world

Water cleanses and breaks down waste, both in our bodies as well as in the environment. When it rains, the droplets bind with chemicals, dirt, and dust, helping to purify the air. In nature, water provides a home to many weird and wonderful creatures including fish, marine mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and krill. It also gives life to the livestock and crops that become our food. We cannot live a single day without it.

It might not be obvious, but we are always surrounded by it. The smoothie you had when you woke more than likely contained water. So did the cup of coffee you had on the way to work. You swam your laps at the gym in a swimming pool filled with water, and played with your children on a lush green lawn that gets watered a few times a week. It is impossible to go through any single day without coming into contact with, and reaping its myriad of benefits.

Our bodies cannot function without H2O

Did you know that your body weight is made up of approximately 60% water? The human body utilizes water in all of its tissues, cells and organs to help it function properly and to regulate its temperature. We lose it through perspiration, urination, breathing and digestion and it is for this reason that we need to stay well hydrated by drinking water and eating foods that contains water. The average adult needs to consume between 6 and 8 glasses of water a day according to the National Research Council (NRC) and although pure water is best, other fluids such as iced tea, fruit juices, and cool drinks do contribute towards meeting the daily requirements. Apart from just quenching our thirst and cooling us down on a hot day, water also helps protect our spines as well as acts as a lubricant for our joints.

water is more valuable than gold

Water is the ultimate life-giving resource and also one of the scarcest. We may have avoided ‘Day Zero’ before, but we can’t know what the future holds. Past events has shown us the importance of water conservation and being well-prepared for future dry spells.

It is a fact that the drought in South Africa has had a massive impact on the farming community. This resulted in lower production rates and below standard fruits and vegetables. The nutrients in these products are below par. Because of that we have to start looking at adding multivitamins to our diet. We also need to improve our overall health with regular exercise and alternative therapies.
