People love to consume water with lots of ice in the summer season, because the cold water helps in quenching the thirst. On consuming this type of chilled water can only provide temporary relief from thirst and its consumption is not good for health. Whereas, water stored in the earthen pot is one of the most beneficial ways of consuming water during summer season with huge health benefits, but, the modern generation tends to ignore it and like to consume only refrigerated chilled water which negatively affect the human health. Water stored in earthen pot is healthier than the water store in any other vessel made up of steel, glass and plastic. These earthen pots contain small pores through which water seeps and gets evaporated and ultimately cool down the water stored in it. It is highly dangerous to consume packaged drinking water after being exposed to the sun because we all are unaware of the fact that how long the water bottles are set in the packaged form. Dioxin and BPA (Bisphenol A) are the most common chemicals which are found in plastics that leach from the plastic bottle into the water and make the stored water unfit for consumption and these are the toxic chemicals which are found in cancerous tissues. On the other hand earthen pot does not release any harmful chemicals, whereas, water stored in it helps to boost our metabolism without any side effects. Earthen pots are cheap, cost effective and easily affordable by the common man thus; this raises the potter’s income as selling potteries are the only source of income for them.
