Adults who do not consume enough water may age faster and face the greatest risk of death. The New York Post reports this, citing a study in the journal EBioMedicine.
Researchers noted that reduced water intake shortens life expectancy. They analyzed the analyses of 11 thousand study participants and concluded that people whose sodium concentration was higher than 142 millimoles per liter were 50 percent more likely to age sooner.
It turned out that these participants had a 20 percent increased risk of death. This is because they were more likely to face fatal diseases, including heart failure, stroke, diabetes, dementia and chronic lung disease.
Earlier, a research team from Osaka University found that consuming coffee by people suffering from severe forms of hypertension can double the risk of death from cardiovascular disease.
