How much does the water that I consume from foods like fruit matter?
Water in food accounts for about 20 percent of people’s daily fluid needs, according to the Institute of Medicine. “And the hydration you get from food is just as good as what you get from drinking water,” says Dr. Peeke. For example, a grilled chicken breast, served with cauliflower and one-half cup of spinach, nets you almost a full cup of water. There’s even a hidden perk to watery bites: They may help you slim down.
Do I need a water filter?
Despite mandated monitoring, “there can still be trace amounts of impurities in tap water, including lead that leaches from plumbing,” explains Cheryl Luptowski, home-safety expert for NSF International. Even very low levels of lead in water have been linked to cognitive issues, particularly in children. First, call your supplier to get your water report. A simple carbon filter may be enough. But if there’s just a tiny bit of arsenic, lead or perchlorates, you’ll need a home filtration system designed for your issues.
