Did You Know That Sand Is The Most Used Resource 2nd Only To Water

I would not have guessed sand to be the most used natural resource 2nd only to water.  Looking into it, it makes sense when you  see that 75% of cement is sand.  The other issue is that there is going to be a sand shortage simply because one cannot just take the sand from the deserts and use it as it is round in shape and to make cement you need ragged edge sand that only comes from river beds and sea beds.  Something to ponder on your next visit to the beach.
