A lack of copper can create both hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism.
Healing Anemia – Lots of people are low in iron and that can also be attributed to a lack of copper in their diet. Copper helps the body utilize iron and thus creates more hemoglobin and carry more oxygen. So if a person has anemia they might want to drink some copper water daily.
Neurological Health – Copper helps create the myelin sheath that covers all the nerves in the body like insulation on wires in a house. Copper is important in creating phospholipids which are the main components of the myelin sheaths of nerves. Thus copper is important for preventing convulsions and for good brain health.

Studies are being done about adding copper to certain materials to prevent the spread of disease in hospitals. And a study at the University of South Carolina showed that using copper surfaces in Intensive Care Unites prevent the spread of disease by 40%.
