9 Tips on How to Make Your Coffee Habit Healthier
You should opt for filtered water
Many people don’t use filtered water, because they think that boiled water is good enough. But according to medical experts, filtered water is a good choice because it is healthier than others.
“Filtered water ensures there are not any unwanted heavy metals like lead or copper, that might be found in old pipes. Tap water also contains many chlorine disinfection byproducts which can be harmful long term,” Swinney says. “You should also avoid using well water unless it’s been tested for contaminants.”
In addition, you should avoid using your Keurig. “The water tanks in a Keurig can never truly be flushed and cleaned. We are concerned about mold and bacteria growth in these tanks over time, much like commercial ice machines,” Immer says.
