A new study has found that people who are highly motivated to drink clean water are more likely to drink it.
The study, published in the journal Environmental Health, analysed the drinking habits of more than 5,000 people, and found that those who are more motivated to make the most of their drinking water are less likely to be drinkers.
“The findings show that people are motivated to improve their drinking habits by drinking clean drinking fluids.
We can identify people who do drink clean, and also encourage them to drink better water,” Dr Rui Guo, from the University of Cambridge’s School of Public Health, told AAP.
Dr Guo and his colleagues examined the drinking behaviour of over 50,000 Australian men and women over five years.
The participants were asked to complete questionnaires, including questionnaires about their drinking and health habits.
They were also asked to take a battery of physical tests.
Dr. Guo says one of the key findings of the study is that there is a correlation between people’s willingness to drink and their likelihood of being a drinkers.
“In the last year or so we’ve shown that people tend to drink more water than they think they do, so it’s not surprising that they have a greater desire to drink,” Dr Guos said.
Dr. Ian Smith, from Australian National University’s School and College of Health Sciences, said that the findings may have implications for public health. “
It’s not only the water they drink, but also what they eat, and the amount of alcohol they drink and the types of beverages they have.”
Dr. Ian Smith, from Australian National University’s School and College of Health Sciences, said that the findings may have implications for public health.
“One of the things that we are seeing is that if you are a high-risk person, there is really a need for water to be a healthy resource,” Dr Smith said.
He said that it could help prevent chronic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, and increase public health efforts.
The researchers say their findings are “very encouraging”, but caution that the study’s limitations should be taken into account.
“These are very, very small numbers and very few people really are drinking enough water to make this meaningful.
We need to understand what is driving the motivation,” Dr. Smith said, adding that the future of water research is “encouraging”.
Dr. Huq said there is more work to be done to understand why some people become so motivated to take advantage of clean drinking facilities.
“There is a lot more that needs to be studied, and there are lots of ways to make people healthier,” Dr Huq added.
“What is clear is that we need to look at how to improve the public health of this population and how we can change behaviour and attitudes.”
