Candidate of chemical sciences Irina Eremina said it is not worth drinking rainwater right now, especially in Moscow.

The expert said it contains the same components as other types of water, but in very small quantities.

Of all natural waters, rainwater is usually the cleanest, but the chemist believes that doesn’t mean it’s drinkable. The expert notes that previously it was collected for real drinking: it was soft – there was very little salt there.

But rainwater is no longer so safe. In particular, nitrates from emissions from businesses and vehicles can enter it. In addition, the liquid may contain a lot of dust, soot and bacteria.

Finally, rainwater can contain toxic metals. Eremina emphasizes that despite a slight concentration, they can cause serious harm.
