Even Bottled Water Can Cause Hypertension

Apr 25, 2008
People that have been drinking bottled water for several years may often find that they have become victims to different kinds of diseases including heart problems, hypertension, atherosclerosis and more. Unfortunately, if this describes your case then you are at risk of becoming yet another statistic of the bottled water industry's growing list of ill people.

This in spite of the fact that US regulations require that bottled water must contain alkalinity of less than three hundred mg/L, and hardness should also not exceed three hundred mg/L while pH must fall between six and eight while TDS must also be less than three hundred and fifty ppm.

More Like A Prescription For Illness

However, all of these readings will actually not help consumers because such readings actually read more like a prescription for hypertension as well as other diseases than a means to safeguard your health. In addition, the fact of the matter is that there is also a definite association between the amounts of softness present in municipally supplied water and mortality rates directly attributable to ailments such as hypertension. In fact, according to studies conducted in this regard on people living in eighty-eight different cities in the US there were twelve major as well as four trace constituents that pointed to death by hypertension.

In fact, if water contains excess of dissolved elements, the chances of dying from hypertension would be greatly increased. Even as far back as between the years 1941 and 1951, there was enough indication found that indicated that both hypertension and also arteriosclerotic heart diseases resulted from drinking different kinds of soft municipal water in different parts of the United States.

There are also several other interesting facts related to drinking water and suffering from various diseases including softer water causing higher mortality rates among non-white people suffering from hypertension and in fact, non-whites were a lot more prone to being affected by hypertension than their white counterparts.

Other studies have since been conducted in order to find out the association between hardness of water and suffering from hypertension, and in fact, it was found that among the male population as many as 22.5 percent were liable to suffer from hypertension while for females the percentage was slightly higher at 23.6 percent.

The bottom line is that if you are white and drinking particularly hard municipal water, then the chances of your dying from hypertension are greater, and so it certainly will pay for you to be extra careful about the type of water you drink.
