Suggestion for Establishment of Minimum Limits for Constituent Minerals in Drinking Water

Ramesh Kumar Sharma

Indian foods nowadays, as per test reports, exhibit negligibly small contents of synthetic pesticides and metal contaminants. However, minerals can’t be compared with synthetic pesticides in context of public health. To some extent minerals are present in water and foods. Mineral deficiency may pose serious threat to public health. There are chances of mineral water fabrication too. In the light of Indian, United States and European Union regulations as well as World Health Organization guideline for dissolved solids in drinking water, it is suggested that minimum limits for ionic constituents of mineral water be established by the Food Safety Authority.
