Salt is soluble, no matter how much filtering you do, it won't do anything. The only way to remove salts by "filtering" is through reverse osmosis, typically found in desalination plants. This "filter" is actually a membrane design to work on the difference of molecule size of water and salt molecules, so in the nanometer scale. A T-shirt have pore in micrometer scale, so all salts will pass through.Anybody hear about that story of the Indonesian teen found rescued at sea supposedly out there for 49 days. He said he survived drinking sea water filtered through his t-shirt. Sounds strange if it were that easy since desalinization plants are extremely expensive. Is that possible?
I think it's more likely that he survived off of rain water.That should be such a common knowledge thing for anyone who lives near saltwater that I don't think he would've lied about it, more likely someone else misreported it accidentally or deliberately i.e. filtering the water through his T-shirt was only one of several steps he took but they only reported that step.
On another note, could eating moist food like fresh fish help him last longer with less water?
CNN is NOT a reliable news source, but a left leaning propaganda generator, sadly many traditionally reliable Western news outlets are more about anti-Trump, anti American propaganda, but some folks here love it for that very reason....I notice one thing; the news you read on edition.cnn.com are usually can be read days ago elsewhere. Why? Isn't CNN one of the largest news agency in the world? Is CNN a reliable news source?
Its relative in the US. CNN is probably more left. Fox is hard right and even coordinates their message with the white house and GOP. What they call "liberals" is their own label. NPR is probably the least biased broadcast media source in the US. The biggest thing to keep in mind here is that mainly people over 60 actually watch TV news crap anyway.I notice one thing; the news you read on edition.cnn.com are usually can be read days ago elsewhere.
