Drinking tap water can cause premature ageing, the Express reports.
And leading anti-ageing experts have warned that drinking unfiltered tap water can add years to your appearance.
Dr Marion Gluck revealed: “It’s one of the reasons why male fish have started to display female characteristics, why oestrogen-related cancers, such as breast cancer, uterine cancers and ovarian cancers are on the rise – water is full of oestrogen which is not removed by the usual filtration systems.”
She went on to further explain that the hormonal imbalance in tap water can cause ageing in the form of the ‘middle-aged spread’ (female hormones are believed to cause weight gain around the waist).
To combat the ageing process, Dr Gluck recommends drinking from glass water bottles to prevent the ageing process or using a reverse osmosis filtration system at home.
So next time you reach for a glass of tap water, you may want to think twice.
