Why Raise Your Cancer Risks by Drinking Tap Water?
May 27, 2006
Six recent studies, examining a combined total of almost 8,000 people, have indicated that higher consumption of tap water can increase the risk of bladder cancer in men.
Men who drank more than 2 liters of tap water a day ran a 50 percent higher risk of bladder cancer than those who drank half a liter or less. Both straight tap water and tap water from other sources, such as coffee, were examined in the study.
Other beverages were not found to have the same associated risks.
