Sociologically speaking, water and food are the two basics of life affecting the quality of life, and being affected by the quality of life as well. During the past two centuries, world countries have witnessed changes in water and food availability and accessibility in various parts of the world; some have accessed to healthy water in pipe system, but many countries have not yet reached that goal. The result of such failure is health problems for many people, and shortage of food food production in those countries. On the other hand, accessing to healthy water resources in many countries through pipeline systems has provided the population with improved health, improved agricultural system, sufficiency of food stuff and a better guarantee to live-a process leading to improved quality of life. However, water and food availability are highly related with the population size in different countries of the world as well. Different accessibility to healthy water and food, has led to a gap between life expectancy in developed and developing countries. The increasing climate change has adverse consequences for water scarcity. Therefore, and according to the mentioned conditions, the current societies should pay adequate attention to the preservation, maintenance, repair and improvement of their water resources. If not, threats await them.
