Hello and Welcome to JADa’s Tea Lounge
This is a dedicated space for all tea lovers but with a health twist. I mainly focus on the health aspect of drinking tea.
We all know that to make a good cup of tea we need to add water. But do we know what is in our tap water?
Arsenic is in our tap water among other chemicals and toxins. I will be talking about arsenic and the effects in this article.
I have also added a couple of very help and much watch videos which will go into more detail about this problem with drinking water.
I have also included a solution and alternative to drinking tap water.
What is Arsenic?
Arsenic is an odourless and tasteless.
It enters our water supply from natural deposits in the earth and or from agricultural and industrial sources.
Did you know that arsenic is used as a wood preservative and also be used in dyes, drugs, soaps, paints, metals and semi-conductors
What Effect Does Arsenic Have On Our Health?
The immediate symptoms of acute arsenic poisoning are abdominal pain, diarrhoea and vomiting, these symptoms are usually followed by numbness and tingling of the extremities, cramping of the muscles and in extreme cases, death will occur.
Right now that I have shown you the effects and symptoms of acute arsenic poisoning, the long term effects of arsenic exposure which can happen whilst drinking tap water.
Some of the symptoms can display itself in skin damage and or circulation problems and increase the risk of getting skin cancer, cancer of the lungs and or bladder.
It has also been linked to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, neuro-toxicity and developmental effects.
How Big is This Problem?
There are a number of areas where arsenic contamination of drinking water is huge and contamination of ground water is widespread.
