Drinking water health has always been our concern, and now water pollution is slowly being treated, but we still have to worry about drinking water problems, so many families install water purifiers. So, what happens to drinking water from a water purifier for a long time?
Some people say that drinking water from a water purifier for a long time is harmful to our body. The main reason is that the purified water purified by the water purifier lacks nutrients such as minerals and trace elements, which is not conducive to human health. In fact, there is no theoretical basis for this statement. We generally drink water only to replenish water, not to supplement nutrition.
If you think that the water filtered by the water purifier will cause nutrient loss, then look at these data to make more sense: the calcium content of a glass of milk is equivalent to the calcium content of 1200 glasses of mineral water, and the iron content of a pound of beef is equivalent The iron content in 8200 cups of mineral water and the one cup of orange juice contain minerals beneficial to human health, 500 times higher than untreated drinking water. These data show that the real supplementary nutrition depends on food rather than drinking water.
What harm does drinking pure water do to the body? Hao Yu, secretary general of the National Food Industry Standardization Technical Committee, said: "If drinking pure water itself is harmful to the body, then the Ministry of Health and the National Technical Supervision Bureau will no longer be able to specify the national standard of pure water. It is also necessary to stop production and sales." But the result is just the opposite, which proves the safety of pure water.
Even if the purified water purified by the water purifier is not harmful, what are the benefits? The biggest benefit of the water purifier is naturally to filter harmful substances, rust, sand, colloids in the water, residual chlorine in the water, smell, color, pesticides and other chemical agents, bacteria, impurities, toxins, heavy metals and so on. The harm caused by these things is far greater than the benefits of trace elements and minerals in the water.
So stop being superstitious by drinking water to supplement trace elements. The problem of water pollution is still worsening. In order to better protect the health of our drinking water, it is recommended to install a water purifier in the home.
