That's pretty much like how they figured out what typhoid was in London. They realised that folk working in the local brewery and those drinking beer and nothing but, weren't dying. That's because they were boiling the Sh1t out of everything bad in the water. Yet those drinking the local water were dropping every other second. Capture the rain water. Boil the sh1t out of it. As long as it isn't nuclear, you are fine. Anybody says other wise, well, I worry for them and how they passed science. As long as it isn't nuclear, and the fact that boiling kills typhoid (which is mostly caused by human and animal waste) and pretty much everything else known to this planet outside of the human body, then you are ok.
Post script. I cannot believe this ADULT site censors swearing between adults.
