Hard Tap Water May Cause Eczema in Babies
According to a new study from the United Kingdom, ‘hard’ mineral-laden tap water connected to the increased risk of eczema in babies. Eczema is a chronic skin condition marked by itchiness and rashes.
The study included 1,300 3-month old infants from different regions of Great Britain. In this study, researchers checked the water’s mineral content and chlorine levels in tap water. Scientists reported that babies who lived in the places with hard tap water were about 87% more likely to have eczema.
Lead author Dr. Carsten Flohr from the Institute of Dermatology at King’s College London says that their study builds on growing evidence of a link between exposure to hard water and the risk of developing eczema in childhood.
The author also adds that this study wasn’t designed to establish a cause-and-effect relationship and further research is necessary to learn more about this link.
