But you do drink it!
Water from sand-filter beds has been purified through the growth of
ciliates which sweep up pathogens. My guess is that the horse-radish
)like the straw) provides the substrate and food trigger which does this
in contaminated bodies of water. The clear water of a mountain stream is
kept that way by ciliates, too.
