Lack of clean drinking water is one of the major risks to human health in the world today. This book not only teaches safe water habits but also every page is made from a technologically advanced filter paper, capable of killing deadly waterborne diseases. Each page is coated with silver nanoparticles, whose ions actively kill diseases like cholera, typhoid and E. coli.

The best news of all, and governments please take note, is that The Drinkable Book is actually very cheap to produce. In Africa alone 355 million people don't have access to a clean water source, so ideas like this one bring much needed hope.
