Why Reboiling Water Is Harmful

You are probably guilty of reboiling the water every morning when you turn the kettle on for you morning cup of tea or coffee. Apparently, it’s a foolish routine that could be detrimental to your health.

The composition of water changes when boiled. This beneficially releases volatile compounds and gases, making boiled water a safe drink. But when ordinary water is over boiled or reboiled, the chemical compounds change for the worse.
