MANY of us think nothing of re-boiling water in the kettle to make our morning cuppa, but it turns out doing so exposes us to some serious health risks according to health experts. Most tap waters contain natural chemical compounds, the make-up of which changes when first boiled. This is a good thing as it kills any germs and bacteria present in the water.
However, when it is re-heated, the dissolved gases and minerals that have undergone a chemical transformation amass and become significantly more toxic.
The chemicals in the water get concentrated,things like nitrates, arsenic and fluoride. Every time you reboil the water, they get more concentrated, and you really don’t want to be having them in your body.
Nitrates turn into nitrosamines and become carcinogenic. These chemicals have been linked to diseases like leukemia and non-Hodgkin lymphoma as well as various types of cancer.
Meanwhile arsenic accumulates which can result in cancer, heart disease, infertility and neurological problems. Minerals that are good for us in small doses, such as calcium salts, can be very harmful when re-boiled and can lead to kidney stones and gallstones. Worryingly, an increase in the level of fluoride can have damaging effects on the cognitive and neurological development of children.
At home we normally uses kettle, electric kettle or some uses Electronic Hot Water Themos which is even worst. It reboil water whenever the temperature is low.
We have recently found one interesting product in the market by SEERs Berhad named 3-Second Hot Water Dispenser.
3 Seconds Instant Hot Water Supply uses core “Nanocrystal Tube”, a non-metallic hydro-isolation water heating technology. Boiled water is supplied by Nano Tube and is ready with 2-5 seconds when required. Compared to traditional hot water dispensers that has fluctuates in water temperature, water sterilisation is done during the heating process in the SEERS Thermos Flask.
The SEERS Thermos Flask overcomes the disadvantages such as re-boiling water that is mixed with impurities, furring and metal particles. All the components used are within the country’s safe standard.
The power saving is approximately 98% on standby mode hot water dispenser and 50% energy saving compared with other traditional dispensers on the keep warm mode. With the all new SEERS Thermos Flask, you can get hot water within only 3 seconds without any worries of high electricity consumption.
