The Relationship Between Height And Swimming In Places With High Acid Levels?
morning I live in Kalimantan and every afternoon I swim in the river Sukamara barley close to Sunagi Barley’s house has a high enough acid content can it affect my height if I swim there? That is all and thank you
Good afternoon Jeje, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Based on what has existed until now there has not been found any relationship between height and swimming habits in places that have high acid levels in the water, so it cannot be stated with certainty whether these habits can affect height or not. The majority of existing studies to date indicate that water that has high levels of acid can only cause disruption to the body if the water is consumed (drunk), where disturbances that may arise include:
Irritation of eyes, skin or mucosa (eg mouth) if the pH of the water reaches <4 Metal buildup that causes water to become acidic in the body. Toxicity of metal material in the water which can cause nerve disorders (for example, deafness, seizures, etc.) -other) and can cause miscarriage in pregnant women Disorders of the digestive tract For now, if you do not feel any disturbing complaints during your activities, then you are still allowed to carry out these activities while paying attention so that you do not drink the water properly intentionally or unintentionally and maintain the cleanliness of your body after carrying out these activities. However, if your habit is causing complaints (eg irritation of the skin / eyes, nausea, vomiting, etc.) then it is advisable to stop the habit first and immediately consult a doctor for further evaluation.
I hope this helps.
