Abstract [en]

Drinking water regulations focus on water free of acutely toxic organic pollutants, bacteria, and toxic elements, and in municipal water, iron, manganese, and calcium are usually regulated as they may cause precipitation and discoloring. However, water with substantial levels of macroelements as well as microelements appearing in alkaline water are beneficial in preventing different diseases, for instance cardiovascular diseases, which are the biggest killers of people around the world. In addition, mineral ratios are important for good health. Thus, future regulations should also include lowest acceptable concentrations of a number of elements and element ratios. Safe health ranges of elements and element ratios are suggested for future drinking water regulations in the chapter.
