    In the Spirit of Safety,



    Think Before You Drink: Where in the World is Tap Water Safe


    It’s one of the first questions you might ask before you travel to another country: is it safe to drink the tap water there? Not doing your homework could ruin your vacation and leave you with such maladies as diarrhea and hepatitis A.

    The below infographic, compiled by Just the Flight, looks to help travelers know where it is and isn’t safe to drink. It uses data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and goes country by country – blue means go ahead and drink, and red means stay away from tap water.

    Nice post. Every American should do their research before drinking the water in different countries. What works for them may not work for you!!

    The same advice applies to the US given the issues people are facing in cities like Flint, Michigan. That situation might be a "wake up" call to all of us, regardless of where we live. Is our environment more toxic than we realize?
