People who go for a swimming session suffer from a condition called water intoxication, according to new research.
Researchers at the University of British Columbia analyzed data from more than 3,000 people in Vancouver and Toronto.
They found that swimming with a plastic water pipe during the first few minutes of a swim caused a surge in the amount of fluid in the blood.
But if people did the same with a zinc water pipe before the start of the swim, the amount dropped dramatically.
They also found that people with zinc water pipes who went swimming in their homes had a lower risk of developing water intoxication compared to those who did not.
But they didn’t know how much the water was actually making the person feel.
The researchers said that, based on what they found, it could be possible to improve the design of these types of water pipes.
Water intoxication is a condition that occurs when a person takes too much fluid and then gets sick.
There are a number of causes for this condition, including improper care or misuse of water and excessive water consumption, and people can suffer a range of symptoms, including headaches, fatigue, nausea, sweating, dry skin, and dry eyes.
It’s important to get treatment, but you shouldn’t get water intoxication if you’re not already in the hospital, said researcher Andrew Pardue, who led the study.
People who don’t have water intoxication are usually able to get back into the water safely.
But people who have water in their system can become dehydrated and have severe dehydration if they’re not given enough water.
For this reason, the researchers said it’s important for people to have access to adequate water throughout their swimming sessions.
The next step is to find out if zinc water and polywater pipes work differently than other types of plastic water pipes and if people need to adjust their water use.
Pardu said he thinks that there’s some evidence to suggest that zinc water could work better in people with water intoxication because it’s more hygienic and safer.
The study was published online today (Jan. 12) in the journal Pediatrics.
