Why is ground water in southern Asia risky for consumption?

    One major reason making South Asian groundwater risky to drink is the high levels of arsenic present in groundwater in several Asian countries.  The groundwater, while often safer than drinking the heavily contaminated surface water that persists across Asia, can cause serious arsenic poisoning over time.  Right now, over 65 million people across eight Asian nations are at risk of arsenic poisoning from their drinking supply.

    So I’d say between the arsenic and pollution of waters, as well as unsafe or lacking filtration methods in many places, you’d be better off to bring some bottled water.
