A new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) has shed light on the hot-ass topic of water, and how it affects your body.
A study published by the journal shows that while water has many benefits, it’s a dangerous and potentially life-threatening substance that can be extremely toxic.
“One of the most common and significant adverse effects of excessive intake of water is dehydration,” study author Dr. Rene C. Zwijsen, a gastroenterologist at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, said in a statement.
“It’s a known risk factor for many chronic illnesses, including heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.”
Dr. Zwaisen and colleagues looked at a large, nationally representative sample of 1,091 adults.
They were looking at people who had been diagnosed with a range of diseases, including: kidney disease, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cardiovascular disease, cancer, arthritis, stroke, and diabetes.
“In particular, we looked at people with kidney disease who were being treated with dialysis,” Dr. Zweijsen said.
“We also looked at stroke patients, who are in an increased risk for stroke.
We also looked to see if there was any association with cardiovascular disease.”
While people who drank excessive amounts of water in the past year had more problems with water retention and hydration than people who didn’t drink water, the study didn’t look at how the amount of water was related to those health problems.
The researchers then took a deeper look at water intake from other sources.
They looked at the amount consumed by people who lived in areas with high levels of pollution or pollution-related deaths.
They also looked into people who were hospitalized with COVID-19, or the coronavirus, as well as those who were diagnosed with other illnesses, like cancer.
Dr. C. David O’Neill, the lead author of the study and a professor of medicine at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, said he was particularly surprised to find that people who used a lot of water had higher levels of water retention.
“If you are drinking a lot, you have less water in your body,” Dr O’Neil said.
This was especially true in people with chronic obstructives pulmonary disease or COPD, which can lead to a buildup of fluid in the lungs and may also contribute to water retention, Dr. O’Neal said.
“People with COPD have a higher water intake than people without it, and it is a known factor in the development of those conditions,” Dr C. O. Osmond said.
He said it’s important to remember that water is not a magic bullet to solve all of our water problems, but rather, it can provide some relief, especially for people who don’t have other conditions that cause problems with fluid retention.
Dr Zwjsen said he hopes his study provides some answers about what is happening with water in our bodies and how to minimize the risk.
“We want to make sure that people have a safe and nutritious diet that does not come at the expense of their health,” Dr Zwujsen said in the statement.
