Not drinking enough water raises risk of death by 20%

Not drinking enough water raises risk of death by 20%

New research published on Monday in the medical journal the Lancet has shown that adults who are not hydrated enough may show water ageing signs and higher risk of chronic diseases.

Researchers from the National Institutes of Health conducted the study over a 25 year period and analysed the medical visits of over 11,000 adults in the US aged between 45 to 66.

They then followed up with visits at ages 70 through 90, and emerging evidence showed that ‘adding consistent good hydration to other healthy lifestyle choices may slow down the ageing process.’

Researchers tracked hydration in subjects by monitoring how much sodium was found in the blood of participants, with higher sodium levels indicating less hydration. 

Blood-sodium concentrations were found to be between 135 to 146 millimoles per litre. Those with levels on the higher end of the range (i.e greater than 144 millimoles per litre) were 50% more likely to how signs of physiological ageing. 

These include high cholesterol, blood pressure, surging sugar levels, sunken eyes, etc. A 20% increase of premature death risk was also registered.

A 66-year-old man was remanded in custody yesterday evening after being charged with shooting the owner of a field neighbouring his own in the face on New Year’s Eve. 

The pensioner from Paola, Martin Delia, was arraigned on Monday at around 2000hrs and was accused of attempted murder and the destruction of evidence. 

Delia was accused of firing at the owner of a field neighbouring his from a 5 metre distance. He also went on to destroy CCTV footage which could have potentially incriminated him. 

Delia was arrested shortly after the shooting on Saturday morning but plead not guilty to the charges. Other crimes he was accused of were attempted homicide, grievous bodily harm, carrying a weapon during the commission of a crime against a person and without a police permit, and tampering with evidence. 

Request for bail was rejected due to the grave nature of the offence and due to civilian witnesses still having to testify. 

However, the court also ordered that the prisons director ensure that Delia receive the medical treatment he needs due to him suffering from terminal kidney disease, is on dialysis and is losing his eyesight.
