Can we rely on our drinking water? Hans-Jørgen Albrechtsen talks about the quality of the drinking water or lack of the same in Denmark. About differences in drinking water in different parts of the country. About bacteria, pesticides, fluorine and calcium and what else is found in drinking water.

We will discuss water treatment and how dangerous it can be to treat the water yourself. What the future looks like in terms of drinking water. How is the groundwater? What about all the other liquids we drink?
