Its inevitable that almost everybody reboil water, but only few people know about its health implication. But, it should not be done because there are 2 major risks related with that. Read on and the reasons will surprise you!
1. Toxic concentration increase
Tap water is not that clear as it looks. The Environmental Working Group found 316 chemicals, such as:
These chemicals cannot be eliminated by boiling, unlike microorganisms. Actually, when boiling water with those chemicals, you are making the toxins concentration worse. The water starts to evaporate, while the toxins stay put, making the water even more dangerous. So, the more you boil it, the more dangerous it becomes. High concentrations of these chemicals can be really dangerous.
For instance, arsenic produces nausea, vomiting, pain in the abdomen, and diarrhea. Long-term exposure causes cancer.
Drinking high concentrations of chlorine causes a 93% higher cancer risk than average. Don’t make your water worse by boiling it multiple times. You might want to think about switching to natural spring water to avoid the chemicals.
2. Potential explosions
This is a huge risk if you reheat your tea in the microwave.
Microwaves heat water molecules very quickly. At times, the molecules get heated before they can turn into vapor. At this point, the water is referred to as ‘super-heated.’
When you take the cup out of the microwave, it begins to cool and the water vapor suddenly goes *poof!*
Stir the water before reheating to prevent this. Most people do not do this or they don’t know they are supposed to do it.
A 42-year-old man has been arrested in relation to alleged terrorism offences at Young, north-west of Canberra, having allegedly tried to assist the Islamic State group to develop missiles.
According to Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, the man had “sought to advise” the Islamic State group on how to develop high-tech weapons.
Haisem Zahab was arrested this morning in front of his family.
Police confirmed children were present at the time.
Mr Turnbull said the arrest was not linked to any immediate terror threat.
“Police will allege that this individual, in a regional centre, acted with intent to provide ISIL with the … technical capability, and high-tech capability, to detect and develop missiles,” Mr Turnbull said.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull held a press conference today, confirming a 42-year-old man from the town of Young was arrested following a major raid.
He is an Australia-born electrician with no direct experience of missile technology but the work he was doing was “credible”.
“Police will allege that the man arrested has sought to advise ISIL on how to develop hi-tech weapons capability this highlights that terrorism, support for terrorists groups and Islamism extremism is not limited to our major cities,” Mr Turnbull said.
CROWN has cut more than 200 jobs at its Perth riverside complex in the wake of a dramatic drop-off of high-rollers and a fall in revenue.
The company confirmed the job losses to PerthNow Tuesday morning.
A Crown spokesperson said difficult trading conditions over the last few months had unfortunately resulted in a number of redundancies in the group.
“A priority of ours is to support those affected by these changes. 5,500 people continue to work at Crown Perth and we have a strong commitment to their development and welfare,” the spokesperson said.
