What is the latest on boiling water to make it safe to drink?
I just read an article in a primitive mag that suggests it take boiling water for 15 minutes to make it safe to drink.
ME thinks that would boil most of your water away.
I have read elsewhere that you need to boil water for 3 minutes, 5 minutes Etc and I have run across information that suggests that as soon as the water boils it has killed everything in it and that will make is safe to drink.
I am not talking/asking about adding other chemicals to the water just boiling.
