I am having a personal water crisis this week so I decided to use this as an impetus to do a little water research. I am almost sorry I did!
I went looking for articles and /or studies about hydration as a health benefit and accidentally stumbled across studies about the carcinogenic properties of tap water!
This is a huge article from 1985 outlining how Tap water shows a direct increase in almost all types of cancer.
I then went digging for more recent information and honestly got lost in the science of it. But what I didn’t find were any articles showing that the information was incorrect.
i switched to filtered or bottled water back in 2014 when my cancer reoccurred because My city had a sudden issue with the water treatment plants not doing their job and we decided my compromised immune system didn’t Ned that extra risk. Since I still do chemo every three weeks I have stuck with my extra clean, non-chlorinated water.
So, no big scholarly post on nutrition today but some gentle advice that maybe you should invest in a Brita or Pur just to be safe.
