MOUNT LAUREL, N.J., Sept. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- This week, conservative pundits covering the U.S. presidential election have been quick to judge Hillary Clinton's minor bout with pneumonia. Others have noted that better hydration can prevent the illness. Perhaps the real story here isn't Hillary's case of pneumonia but rather how many Americans are chronically dehydrated.
According to a recent study by SodaStream of consumer water-drinking habits by Ipsos comprising more than 1,000 U.S. adults found that 15 percent of Americans don't ever drink tap water because they don't like the taste. Despite years of warnings from the medical community, chronic dehydration continues to be a root cause of fatigue and other health problems for average Americans and presidential candidates alike. Meanwhile, proper hydration helps with blood circulation, digestion, joint movement, and more.
"Like a lot of women, Hillary Clinton can't take days off work due to illness. There are no days off when you're doing your best," said Emma Froelich-Shea, VP of Marketing for SodaStream USA. "At this time, we remind all Americans of the importance of proper hydration. Sparkling water, made with an environmentally friendly SodaStream machine, is a great tasting, planet-conscious option for everyone and especially for those who dislike plain water or the use of single-use plastic bottles."
