Pouring Fresh Tap Water Into a Glass

Spain is one of the countries with the most dangerous tap water in Europe.

A major study suggests that tap water may be the cause for one in 20 cases of bladder cancer in Europe each year.

Scientists from the Barcelona Institute for Global Health analysed the presence of the chemicals in the tap water in all 28 EU countries apart from Bulgaria and Romania between 2005 and 2018.

Researchers have also come to the conclusion that showering and bathing in the water can cause the disease too, as steam allows the water to seep into people’s pores.
