    Should I Go To Hospital?

    Guys, I forget to buy bottle water today and i was very thirsty, i ate water from tap, ( 2 Glasses), after I searched google and, WtF I did?
    AM I safe now or should I visiti hospital?
    here is result:
    Tap water in SPB: the water may contain some metal pollutants. Furthermore, traces of the parasite Giardia lamblia have been found on a very small scale; the parasite causes unpleasant stomach cramps, nausea, bloated stomach, diarrhoea and frequent gas – and there is no preventative drug, so it is worth taking precautions against contracting it.

    You do not need hospital, but when you are ill, you will definitely know about it!

    Relax, you’ll be fine. My father is a doctor, I showed him your post, he said You may have some stomach discomfort. Drink Sprite or Seven Up for a couple of days or take Zantag or Рфнитидин (pills) if Sprite will not help.
    Take care of yourself

    I know a guy, who knows a guy, that knows a doctor and he said that he should rush to the hospital as fast as he can and ask for a stomach transplant!

    Just let it cool down first. If you don't have any charcoal, go out to the lift. You will find a jar, or beer can full of the stuff, just take a big drink and feel safe that now you are cured.

    Why not go to town and use demineralised water, or distilled water, the first is technically clean, the other i biologically clean, you want clean water, yes?

    We have a 5my filter on our water, both hot and cold, just to be sure, and for cooking we have a tree filter system, but I can drink from any of them no problem, from the warm tap is just taste bad if you hit that one by accident, the ordinary cold one may have a small smell / taste, and the "for cooking" (and aquarium fish) one is without any smell / taste that I can feel.
    I change all filters two times a year and whenever a "friendly" neighbour have made experiments with his water supply and ending up sending hot water into the buildings cold water system = hot toilet seat, very strange feeling I will say.

    Here you should never drink from the "hot water" they put a chemical in it to help keep it warm. Or that is what I've heard.
