Don’t drink the water?

October 10, 2011

Think Safety – Travelling out of the United States? Want to eat? Plan on drinking the water? Be careful. There could be a health risk. The basic rule of thumb when it comes to eating food in developing countries: boil it, peel it, cook it, or forget it. But even the most cautious travelers tend to overlook the obvious (assuming that you’ll want to drink something). Travelers probably think they’re playing it safe by ordering soda…with ice. But guess what? The ice is made with the same undrinkable water. Obvious, sure, but often overlooked. Taking it further, it is suggested that you keep a bottle of water in the bathroom so that you don’t accidentally brush your teeth with the wrong water.
