Thank you so much for that valuable information.
My husband and I have lived here for 9 years and must have been living in a bubble. We have a cistern here in Progreso, which fills from city water. We shower, brush our teeth, and wash clothes with that water, never thinking about all the things you have now brought to light.
From now on when I turn the tap on in the kitchen, I will be mindful of such horrid germs and what not (big ass spider died in the cistern years ago and is now calcified at the bottom) that are pouring from that seemingly safe tap.
I used to ( I'll call it BWI, before water info) get up in the morning and walk outside and say "hello Mexico, I love you", but now, being so informed, I will stay mindful and say "hello Mexico, I love you, but please do not kill me today when I brush my teeth".
I have an elderly father with diabetes who tends to have open wounds so clean water is important. I can't change the facts or the science, but I can avoid problems by educating myself. Why would you not love Mexico? We have the exact same problems in the states. You could say hello world don't kill me today because potable water is becoming scarce everywhere. Why would anyone take science personally? Go figure.
