A BMI Chart or Body Mass Index Chart can be a useful tool for visualizing the ranges for normal, overweight, obese, and extreme obesity based on a person’s height. The simplicity of the BMI formula has made it extremely popular as an initial diagnosing tool for determining a person’s healthy body weight

There are four general categories of contaminants in water supplies:

Biological entities
Heavy Metals
Organic Chemicals
Inorganic chemicals

If one could select which of these categories of water contaminants were the most important or had the most devastating effect on human health, it would be the first category, biological.

More individuals are becoming ill, worldwide, by exposure to biological contaminants in drinking water than any other type of water contaminant. In fact, with an incredible increase in all types of immune deficient health conditions, biological hazards are taking on an even greater importance to consumers as well as water treatment experts.

With this in mind, if one compares the effectiveness of the three systems, we find that only Steam Distillation removes all bacteria, pathogenic or otherwise, from the incoming water. Carbon filters are known breeding grounds for bacteria. Reverse osmosis systems also do not remove microbiological contaminants. In fact, like carbon filters, they are known to act as breeding grounds for bacteria.

Many people are misled or confused by these various systems—in many cases assuming that the quality of water obtained from any one of these three types of systems would be basically the same—very pure, very clean, etc.

Unfortunately, this is not the case. Only distillation is capable of removing virtually all of the five major categories of water pollution: bacterial contaminants, inorganics (salts), heavy metals, organic (carbon-based) chemicals, and radioactive contaminants.
