Contrary to what many people believe, it is not necessary to boil water to make it safe to drink. Also, it is usually not necessary to distill water to make it safe to drink. Heating water to 65º C (149º F) will kill all germs, viruses, and parasites. list of pathogens and what temperature they are killed: Microbe: Worms, Protozoa cysts (Giardia, Cryptosporidium, Entamoeba) - are killed rapidly at 131F (55C). Bacteria (V. cholerae, E. coli, Shigella, Salmonella typhi), Rotavirus - are killed rapidly at 140F (60C). Hepatitis A virus is killed rapidly at 149F (65C). Worldwide, unsafe water is a major health problem. Over 1 billion people do not have access to safe water. Preventable waterborne diseases are responsible for approximately 80% of all illnesses and deaths in the developing world. Children are especially susceptible, with nearly two million deaths each year
