According to reports, at least 3 million people worldwide die every year from drinking unclean water, and nearly 90% of them are children under 5 years old. Drinking water health has become one of the hot topics in social discussion.
So why do children drink the same amount of water, and the prevalence of children is much higher than that of adults? The reason is also obvious.
1. The body water content of infants and young children is high.
Water is an important part of the human body. The younger the age, the higher the water content in the body. The average adult's water content is 55%, children under 5 years old account for 70%-75%, and newborns account for 80%. It is a veritable "water baby". Therefore, the quality of drinking water affects the quality of children's physical fitness.
2. The glomerular filtration function of infants and young children is poor.
Because the body metabolism and immune system of infants and young children are not well developed, the filtering function of glomeruli is poor. Poor water quality will increase the burden on the baby's kidneys. Bacteria and viruses in the water will also break the baby's immune system, so the number of times the baby is sick frequently.
