Being hydrate has lots of overall health benefits. My family and I try our best to keep hydrate and mostly reach for water. Even though we all know the wisdom in drinking water, majority of Canadians are more likely to reach for sugar sweetened beverage than a healthier alternative to tame those taste buds. Brita water recently conducted a survey on beverage consumption habits and found some interesting facts.
Some highlights include:
95 per cent of Canadians agree that the consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages such as soda pop and sports drinks contribute to obesity
While 91 per cent of respondents felt that obesity is more of a problem in Canada today than it was five years ago, Canadian continue to consume sugary drinks with over two billion sugary drinks consumed annually in Canada.
78 per cent agree they should be drinking more water than they do
21 per cent of Canadians suggest they do not drink enough water because they do not like the taste of tap water. Additionally, 16 per cent are concerned about water purity levels
Paul Pasquariello, Brand Manager for The Clorox Company said, "Our report shows that Canadians value convenience and that many Canadians have concerns about the taste and purity of their tap water. For these individuals, Brita is an easy option that provides both great-tasting water and peace of mind."
Filtering the water we drink, both at home and on-the-go, can remove almost 97 per cent of common impurities found in tap water, which is better for the environment and us. Find healthy hydration tips and resources at brita.ca.
