Is it true that boiled water is bad for health?

Some of us prefer to use an electric kettle to boil water. But is it safe

water for health? Discuss

Usually electric kettles are made of twomaterials. These are high manganese steel and 304 stainless steel. They do not differ so much. However, according to Li Guangqiang, a professor at the Institute of Materials and Metallurgy at Wuhan University of Science and Technology, the first type of steel contains less nickel, more manganese, and also has low corrosion resistance, a darker shade.

In general, according to the author of the material, suchan electric kettle, if all the necessary standards were observed during its manufacture, will be safe for the body. And this is regardless of the type of steel that is used.

As for the white scale on the bottom of the kettle, which can sometimes be seen, it also does not harm health in any way and does not impair water quality.

Also an experiment conducted by CCTV-1 "Circlecommunication”, showed that not all boiled water is good for humans. If it is stored for 48 hours or more, then a large number of dangerous bacteria will appear in it. Therefore, it is better to refuse such water.

There is an opinion that boiled water aftercools down, harms the body. But it is unfounded. The thing is that most often she is at home all this time, that is, the risk of microbial infection is actually quite low.

When choosing an electric kettle, you need to pay attentionattention to packaging. It must state that it is made of 304 stainless steel and that it meets all standards (this can be written in the following forms: “meets GB 9684-2011”, “food safe”). In addition, do not forget to remove scale from time to time.
