What is water made of?
Water is both the simplest and the most complex natural element.
Water is made of water molecules of only 3 atoms: two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom (H2O), but not only that…
It all depends on the type of water. A lot of different water exist like for example:
- non-drinking water
- drinking water
- pure water
The composition of the water depends also on the source of the water. Indeed, water can come from the rain, from the river, from the ground, from springs, from the sea, etc…
On top of that, it’s essential to keep in mind that the planet is composed of around 70 % of water, therefore, the water is inevitably polluted by all kinds of pollutants.
Nowadays, the planet has never been so widely and intensively polluted by all kinds of toxics.
Among those, we found:
- disease-causing microbes (bacteria, fungi, viruses, etc.)
- heavy metals
- endocrine disruptor
- chemical poisons (pesticides, industrial waste, etc.)
- radioactive waste

A clear example of the massive radioactivity waste pollution on the water is the Fukushima nuclear disaster that happened in 2011.
Generally speaking, most people don’t realize at all how polluted the water is, including the so-called “drinkable water.”
For instance, because of the heavy use of plastic for many decades, it is now very common to find micro plastic waste, totally invisible to the eye, into many different waters, including the “drinkable water.”
In addition to the pollutants, water contains a bit of everything it touches as it travels.
This is due to its excellent properties: being the best natural solvent.
Thus, water composition is very complex, and it is impossible to naturally find “pure” water.
“Pure” water, also named distilled water, is water removed from almost everything except water molecules.
