November 27, 2016: Our body comprises of 70% water if our body’s water requirement is not met, it can have a variety of negative health consequences. In Japan, there was a ritual of drinking water immediately after waking up in the morning. And, it is considered to be very healthy and it keeps away a lot of diseases. Maybe this is the reason why unlike the US and other western countries people of Japan suffer less from disorders like obesity, diabetes etc.

We should also make a positive change in our life by embracing the practice for our own good. Here are some of the benefits of drinking water on an empty stomach.

1. Helps to get rid of the Toxins from the Body

Drinking water naturally urges the movement in your bowels. At night, our body repairs itself and it casts out all toxins in the body. When we drink water on an empty stomach, right after we wake up in the morning, it flushes out the harmful toxins and leaves the body fresh and healthy.

2. It Improves Metabolism
Metabolic rate can increase if we drink water on an empty stomach. An increased metabolic rate will improve the digestive system and will be able to digest faster. Drinking water on empty stomach immediately after waking up in the morning purifies the colon, and it makes it easier to absorb the nutrients.

3. Improves Skin Radiance
It is because of dehydration that people face premature wrinkles and deep pores in their skin. Drinking water on an empty stomach will increase the blood flow in the skin and will make the skin glow. Since it also releases toxins, it will make the skin more radiant.

4. Healthy and Smooth Hair
Drinking water nourishes the hair from the inside out. An insufficient intake of water can cause dehydration which can lead to brittle hair and thin hair strands. Drinking water on an empty stomach can also improve the quality of the hair to a greater extent.

5. Prevents Bladder Infections and Kidney Stones
Drinking water after waking up can prevent kidney stones and can also keep bladder infections away. Drinking water on an empty stomach dilutes the acids which eventually lead to stones in the kidney. And, it will protect the bladder from various kinds of infections that can be caused by the toxins.

6. Increases Immune System
Drinking water on an empty stomach flushes out toxins and balances the lymphatic system, which increases the levels of immunity. And it is known to all that a strong immune system will keep us far from diseases.

Nano and Microplastics Harming Drinking Water for Humans, Says Study

The research highlights the current difficulty in detecting the presence of nano and microplastics in treatment systems

Researchers have found plastics in our water waste streams are breaking down into microplastics, causing potentially catastrophic consequences for human health and our aquatic systems.

For the study, published in the journal Water Research, researchers investigated nano and microplastics in water and wastewater treatment processes.

The team found that tiny pieces of plastic break down further during treatment processes, reducing the performance of treatment plants and impacting on water quality.

“The presence of nano and microplastics in water has become a major environmental challenge. Due to their small size, nano and microplastics can easily be ingested by living organisms and travel along water and wastewater treatment processes,” said study lead author Judy Lee, Professor the University of Surrey in the UK.

“In large quantities they impact the performance of water treatment processes by clogging up filtration units and increasing wear and tear on materials used in the design of water treatment units,” Lee said.

Approximately 300 million tons of plastic are produced globally each year and up to 13 million tons of that is released into rivers and oceans, contributing to approximately 250 million tons of plastic by 2025.

According to the researchers, since plastic materials are not generally degradable through weathering or ageing, this accumulation of plastic pollution in the aquatic environment creates a major concern.
