The food we eat and the air we breathe all seem to be dependent. Over the centuries, we have learned much about the molecular structure, physical and chemical properties, and so on. We have been able to harness its great power, and we have made the consumption a much quicker process through the idea of “city water” or tap water. The concept of tap water has been around since about 3000 B.C. in Mesopotamia where the townspeople shared water through clay piping.
