Nearly a third of U.S. adults are not hydrated enough, and poorer adults as well as Black and Hispanic adults are at higher risk for poor hydration than wealthier and white adults, according to a new study from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
Lack of access to clean, safe drinking water—as highlighted by recent water crises in communities such as Flint, Michigan—may be one of the main reasons for the disparities, the authors suggested.
The study appeared online July 20, 2017 in the American Journal of Public Health.
