Drinking Water Can Reduce Risk of Heart Disease
Drinking more plain water each day actually reduces the risk of heart disease. This information was revealed in the American Journal of Epidemiology (Vol. 155, #9) where it stated that drinking regular amounts of water throughout the day were as critical in lowering the chances of developing heart disease as eating a healthy diet, exercise, and avoiding air pollution and smoking. Dr. Jacqueline Chan PHd. , lead article author, made it clear that a distinction must be made between drinking other beverages and plain water. Plain water was the only beverage to show this marked difference in risk of the disease.
