Bacteria in your drinking water

posted Aug 18, 2014, 6:57 PM by Coway Malaysia   [ updated Aug 18, 2014, 7:15 PM ]

PETALING JAYA: The water you buy from vending machines may not be as clean as you think.

Twenty-nine samples of water were drawn from such machines throughout the Klang Valley – and almost all were contaminated.

There were harmful E. coli, Coliform and Clostridium perfringens microbes – the same kind of bacteria found in untreated sewage.

Coliform and Clostridium perfringens are also the same bacteria found in human and animal faeces.

These bacteria can cause cramps, diarrhoea and other gastrointestinal problems.

The Star conducted the tests together with Forum Air Malaysia, an organisation formed to assist the National Water Services Commission.

Forum Air Malaysia tested 14 samples in April while The Star screen 15.

The samples were from vending machines here and in Subang Jaya, Cheras, Klang and Kuala Lumpur.

Under Malaysia’s Safe Drinking Water Act, there should not be any trace of Coliform or E. coli in drinking water.

Forum Air research and policy executive Jesslyn Pek said it was worrying that many of the samples did not have traces of free chlorine or fluoride, which are chemicals needed to kill bacteria in water.

“From the tests on the 14 water samples, six were found to have either Coliform or E. coli – and did not contain any free chlorine or chloride,” she said.

“Free chlorine must be present, because it is a disinfectant,” Pek said.

“There are standards to determine how much free chlorine is needed to be used to treat water, but as it cannot be detected at all in these samples, it shows that an insufficient amount was used.”

In the tests conducted by The Star with an accredited lab, all 15 samples tested positive for Coliform and Clostridium perfringens.

Water vending machines are found in office and residential buildings and universities or colleges.

People prefer to buy this water as it costs only about 20 sen a litre compared to bottled water, which can cost more than RM2 for the same amount.

According to an industry source, the Health Ministry began a nationwide effort to license owners of water vending machines last year.

However, to date, many have not responded.

To obtain the licence, operators need to fork out RM450 per machine and send water from the machines for quality tests at the Department of Chemistry.

They also have to pay a licence processing fee of RM130.

A two-year licence costs RM150.

Regulation 360 (c) (for “vended water”) was added to the Food Regulations 1985 in August 2012 to regulate water vending machines.

The ministry has requested for full water test results after being alerted by The Star.

Experts: Filtration system must be serviced regularly

posted Aug 18, 2014, 6:52 PM by Coway Malaysia   [ updated Aug 18, 2014, 6:54 PM ]

PETALING JAYA: The filtration system in water vending machines can become breeding grounds for bacteria if not serviced regularly, say experts.

Malaysian Association of Standards Users CEO Ratna Devi Nadarajan said the purpose of the system is to filter out bacteria, but if it is not maintained or serviced regularly, it can breed bacteria.

Besides the filter, she said the exposed nozzle could also collect bacteria if not maintained or cleaned.

“The fact that faecal Coliform has been found in water shows that it is already very bad.

Ratna, however, said Coliform could be easily treated with chlorine.“We cannot compromise on this. Such bacteria should not be there at all,” she said.

She said the presence of free chlorine in water was an indication that the disinfectant was still working.

“But in many of the water samples, there were no traces of free chlorine, which meant that the treatment of water was not done properly.”

Ratna said the presence of Coliform in drinking water could cause diarrhoea or other stomach problems, especially in children and those with existing health problems.

Forum Air Malaysia research and policy executive Jesslyn Pek said the Clostridium perfringens bacteria that was found in water samples tested was not hazardous in water but could cause food poisoning.

“It usually causes stomach problems for about a day and people may not know that is due to the water.

“Food poisoning can result if this water is used for cooking,” she said.

Pek said the condition of many of the water vending machines was also found not to be in accordance with Part 5 (55) of the Food Hygiene Regulation 2009.

“According to the rules, the machines must be ‘equipped with self-closing, tight-fitting doors on the dispense compartment when the water vending machine is not in use’.

“Some machines had doors which could not shut on their own while others did not even have doors,” she said.

Pek urged the Health Ministry to take immediate action by screening the operators of the vending machines.

Minum air buah ketika sahur untuk kekal cergas

posted Jul 1, 2014, 3:04 PM by Coway Malaysia

MINUM air buah semasa bersahur adalah antara tindakan yang baik dalam memastikan umat Islam sentiasa bertenaga dan sihat sepanjang hari pada  bulan Ramadan ini, menurut pakar dietetik.

Ketua Jabatan Dietetik dan Sajian Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL), Ridzoni Sulaiman berkata dengan meminum air buah-buahan segar, ia dapat mencegah tubuh daripada mengalami dehidrasi pada bulan puasa ini.

Air buah-buahan ini mengandungi pelbagai jenis nutrien seperti vitamin, potasium dan glukosa, dan berperanan sebagai bekalan tenaga di dalam badan, katanya kepada Bernama baru-baru ini.

"Sebenarnya rasa letih, penat dan mengantuk bukannya disebabkan kekurangan makanan tetapi ia adalah disebabkan kuantiti air di dalam badan berada pada tahap rendah.

"Bila berlakunya dehidrasi, tubuh kita kehilangan air serta garam galian seperti sodium, potasium, kalsium, fosfat dan  sebagainya, sebab itu air memainkan peranan penting di dalam tubuh kita," tambahnya.

Memandangkan bulan Ramadan kali ini jatuh pada musim Monsun Barat Daya dengan cuaca yang panas dan kering, serta diburuk dengan jerebu yang tidak menentu dan ramalan fenomena El Nino akan melanda Malaysia pada pertengahan tahun ini, maka adalah perlu bagi umat Islam memastikan bekalan air dalam badan sentiasa dijaga.

Ridzoni berkata selain meminum air buah-buahan, orang ramai perlu mengelak daripada meminum kopi ataupun teh pada bulan puasa kerana minuman itu mempunyai kesan deuratik.

Minuman tersebut akan merangsang pengeluaran air kencing, dan akibatnya, badan akan mengalami dehidrasi dan tekak menjadi sangat haus, katanya.

Sementara itu, Pegawai Dietetik Pusat Pengajian Sains Kesihatan Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), Mohd Hairil Nizam Abdul Hamid turut bersependapat pengambilan air yang mencukupi amat penting dalam menghadapi musim panas ketika berpuasa.

Katanya, kekurangan air ini boleh menyebabkan tubuh menghadapi masalah kerana 70 peratus daripada komposisi tubuh terdiri daripada air.

"Tubuh badan memerlukan sekurang-kurangnya lapan gelas air sehari bagi memastikan sel-sel tubuh dapat berfungsi dengan baik.

"Apabila tubuh mengalami dehidrasi masalah utama adalah buah pinggang kerana bila tubuh kekurangan air, buah pinggang akan kecut yang boleh menyebabkan kerosakan buah pinggang, malah antara perkara lain yang boleh berlaku adalah pening dan pitam," katanya.

Tambah beliau, walaupun pengambilan air yang mencukupi dititikberatkan namun orang ramai turut dinasihat memakan makanan seimbang.


Ramadhan Tips: Drinking Fruit Juices During Sahur Can Conserve Energy, Say Dietitians

posted Jun 27, 2014, 9:40 PM by Coway Malaysia

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) -- Drinking fruit juice during the sahur meal will ensure that Muslims are energized and remain healthy throughout the day during the fasting month of Ramadan, according to dietitians.

Head of Department of Dietetics and Catering Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL), Ridzoni Sulaiman, said drinking fresh fruit juice could prevent the body from becoming dehydrated when fasting.

Fruit juice contains a variety of nutrients such as vitamins, potassium and glucose, and serves as a significant source of energy for the body, he told Bernama recently.

"Actually, the feeling of exhaustion, tiredness and sleepiness is due to lack of water in the body rather than lack of food. When dehydration occurs, our body loses water and minerals such as sodium, potassium, calcium, phosphate and so on, thus water plays an important role in our body," he added.

Considering that this time Ramadan has fallen during the Southwest Monsoon season with hot and dry spells, along with the haze and the forecast that El Nino will occur in the middle of the year, it is necessary to ensure the supply of water in the body is constantly maintained.

Ridzoni said people should also avoid drinking coffee or tea during the fasting month because the drinks have a deuretic effect.

Meanwhile, School of Health Sciences Campus Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) Dietetics Officer, Mohd Hairil Nizam Abdul Hamid, agreed that adequate water intake was very important during the hot spell when fasting.

Seventy per cent of the body's composition is made up of water, it is a major constituent of our bodies and vital organs and lack of water can cause health problems.

"The body needs at least eight glasses of water a day to keep the body's cells functioning properly. Lack of water can cause kidney problems, fainting and dizzy spells," he said.

He also advised people to eat a balanced diet.
