White tap water is better than bottled water
A water supply that comes with a tap water filter is often hailed as a great way to ensure the purity of your water.
But, a new study suggests that the filter can also harm your health and even be harmful to your pets.
In the study, published in the journal PLoS One, researchers looked at the health of more than 500 dogs and cats in the U.S. The researchers compared the health, weight, and overall health of the animals’ pets after using a filter and regular tap water.
They found that regular tap tap water was significantly more likely to cause health problems than regular filtered water.
The results are significant, according to Dr. Michael W. Pomeranz, a veterinarian and co-author of the study.
“There is a risk for poisoning when the filter is present in the water, even if the water has a very high chlorine content,” he told The Huffington Report.
“It is possible that a water filter can have an effect similar to what is seen in the rat model where the bacteria in the gut can alter the normal balance of the body.”
The study included about 700 dogs and 1,000 cats.
While most of the dogs and their owners used regular tap, some of the pets used a filter for several months.
Researchers found that the animals that used regular filtered tap water suffered from health problems such as increased weight loss, poor digestion, and reduced immunity.
The researchers also found that a filter could have health effects in cats, but it wasn’t clear how.
“The most common health problems reported in cats with filters were diarrhea, vomiting, urinary tract infections, and urinary tract abscesses,” the study states.
“It is also possible that cats that have had their filter removed may have had worse health problems due to the bacteria, or because the filter itself may have been contaminated.”
The researchers suggested that it might be best to use regular tap or other tap water for pets when purchasing a water purification system, because it’s more likely the bacteria will be present in tap water before the filter.
The researchers noted that the studies used in the study were relatively small, so it’s unclear if this finding applies to other pets as well.
