My Grandmother, now 95, was a biology professor in a university and has traveled all over the world, even Antarctica. She has carried around a little cup with her for probably 50 years that has some activated charcoal and some iodine and something else in it which she has used to clean water all over the world. She swears by it and considering her idea of a good time is to travel to some disgusting armpit of the world and dig around for thing s to study I guess she knows what she is talking about. Some prof she worked with made the thing but it never took off. Guess someone figured out how to make it pretty and market it now.

But does it work in the worst case scenario situations(Katrina), with dead bodies, oil and gasoline, toxic chemicals and raw sewage? Granted this is an extreme situation, but that is what I was referring too. I have a lot of confidence in my camping water filtration system, but I fear there may be situations that are exponentially worse. Did you get to check that TED vid?

Peace

ETA: I am curious what she may know or say about the Lifesaver and how it works too.

95? Awesome! To have a Biology Prof in the family would be wonderful and I bet you all have a deep appreciation for nature and her complexities.
