There is a small village called Tapka in the rural countryside of Finland. It is about ten miles away from the capital Helsinki. The residents of the village enjoy fresh, clean and healthy tap water that comes straight from the taps of the house. However, most tap water in Finland is not as good as it ought to be. There are many contaminants that are commonly found in tap water in various parts of Europe.
The Tapka residents are mostly lactose intolerant. The reason behind this is that the water they get almost never reaches their kitchen. It gets used by other members of the family such as the children for drinking. They rarely have access to clean tap water. The fact that they are used to getting contaminated drinking water makes them more prone to illnesses than others.
Their diet is rich in potatoes, meat and dairy products. Therefore they are at high risk of developing various illnesses such as osteoporosis, cancer, viral infections as well as gas
