China has been battling water shortage and low quality of drinking water due to its exploding population growth in last three decades and related mass internal migration from rural areas to urban centers. Finally Dragon nation’s researchers found a way to provide healthy water for its masses. Chinese scientists found a new way for mass-producing light (deuterium-depleted) drinking water by changing chemical composition.
According to the ACS’ bi-weekly journal Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research (Ind. Eng. Chem. Res. 2011, 50, 378–381, http://ACS.org), Chinese researchers found a more ecofriendly and cheaper way to make Deuterium-depleted water which is known to be more healthy form of water.

New method involves a platinum catalyst, which quickly removes deuterium from water using cold and hot temperatures.
This means we may soon have made in China drinking water sitting next to cheap electronics, toys and countless other made in China products.
