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.

Plastic Found in 83% Drinking Water on Five Continents, Nobody is Safe

While the health impact of ingesting plastics are unclear, it is not something you would want to consume

  • Tiny particles of degraded plastic called microplastics found in drinking water
  • Consumption of microplastics by fishes are known to stunt growth, inhibit hatching of eggs and increase mortality rates
  • The tiny pieces of plastic have been found in both, public taps and bottled water

London, September 7, 2017 : Tiny pieces of plastic have been found in drinking water on five continents – from Trump Tower in New York to a public tap on the shores of Lake Victoria in Uganda – posing a potential risk to people’s health, researchers said on Wednesday.

Plastic degrades over time into tiny particles known as microplastics, which were found in 83 percent of samples from Germany to Cuba to Lebanon analyzed by U.S.-based digital news organization Orb Media.

“If you ask people whether they want to be eating or drinking plastic, they just say, ‘No, that’s a dumb question,’ ” said Sherri Mason, one of study’s authors and a chemistry professor at the State University of New York.

“It’s probably not something that we want to be ingesting, but we are, whether through our drinking water, through beer, juice. It’s in our food, sea salt, mussels. Nobody is safe,” she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

Microplastics of up to 5 millimeters are also in bottled water, she said.

The health impact of ingesting plastics are unclear, but studies on fish have shown they inhibit hatching of fertilized eggs, stunt growth and make them more susceptible to predators, increasing mortality rates.

Microplastics absorb toxic chemicals from the marine environment, which are released into the bodies of fish and mammals who consume them, Orb Media’s chief executive, Molly Bingham, said in a statement.

While many studies have shown the prevalence of microplastics in the world’s oceans, where more than 5 trillion pieces of plastic are floating, it is the first time research has been conducted into drinking water. (VOA)
