Eine Studie aus Österreich kommt zu dem Schluss, dass Weihwasser und Wasser aus sogenannten „heiligen“ Quellen ziemlich verseucht ist und „extremely“ hohe Anteile von „fecal indicators, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus“ enthält. Holy Shit!
Rather than containing healing properties, most water from "holy" springs in Austria is apparently so contaminated with faecal matter and nitrates that it is unsafe for drinking, a microbiology report has warned. The water used in fonts in churches and hospital chapels also shockingly contains 62 million bacteria for every millilitre of holy water, a study by the Institute of Hygiene and Applied Immunology at the MedUni Vienna has claimed.
Microbiologists analysed the water quality in a total of 21 "holy" springs, as well as 18 fonts in churches and hospital chapels in Vienna at various times of the year, it was revealed in the study. Stomach-churningly, only 14% met the microbiological and chemical requirements of national drinking water regulations – possibly as a result of poor toilet hygiene, Medical Express said.
