Son is 2y old, still boiling the drinking water for him (although bottled water), in egypt afraid of water even bottled, is okay? Or water loses sodium?

Son is 2y old, still boiling the drinking water for him (although bottled water), in egypt afraid of water even bottled, is okay? Or water loses sodium?

Boiled is safer: Water that has been boiled is safer, because germs and parasites have been cooked. People get their sodium from salt in food. In modern societies, we already eat too much sodium, and therefore need no additional sodium from our water. Other ways to make water safe include using special water filters and adding a specific tiny amount of bleach to partially treated water. ...Read more

If sodium floride is a hazardous waste bi-product- why would they put in our drinking water?

If sodium floride is a hazardous waste bi-product- why would they put in our drinking water?

Small amounts good: Like many things (vitamin c, iron, oxygen, water), Fluoride in the correct small quantity is safe. It is only toxic when systemic exposure is much higher then the recommended amount. At the correct amount Fluoride makes your tooth enamel more acid resistant and lowers tooth decay. That is why small amounts are in drinking water. In reality you need a lot over a long time to have any problems. ...Read more

I took some creatine this morning and my body feels Hot I keep drinking water. I'm also a little nervous and having anxiety?

I took some creatine this morning and my body feels Hot I keep drinking water. I'm also a little nervous and having anxiety?

Not enough info but: Generally speaking, creatine itself is not known to increase body temperature and cause one to feel "hot". If you are taking a product that contains creatine in addition to other supplements, perhaps one or more of the other compounds may be the issue. Furthermore, I would recommend only Creapure creatine monohydrate. Don't fall for all the other creatines with useless bells and whistles. ...Read more

Temp needs to be elevated....hence engery is used. ...Read more

My friend had blood lactate 3.7, after drinking water feels cold chest cavity followed by full body prickles. ER found nothing. What could it be?

Well, the most: Obvious causes of lactic acidosis--severe bleeding, shock, infection, heart failure, CO poisoning, pulmonary embolism--would have been detected by ER. It can be associated with dehydration, severe anemia/leukemia or liver disease (probably also checked by ER), extremely strenuous exercise or overheating, alcohol/antifreeze poisoning, some medicines: INH, metformin.
