This book can literally save your life

Around 1.5 million people die each year due to waterborne diseases and this book could change all that. Each page of the 'drinkable book' contains nanoparticles of silver or copper, which eliminates 99.9 percent of bacteria living in tainted water. Just tear out a page, insert it in a filter holder and pour unclean water through it. One page can purify up to 100 liters of drinking water and may provide a cheap, sustainable solution for communities with poor sanitation and unsafe hygiene practices.
