Could drinking well water with sulfur cause blood clots?

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Small amounts of sulfur in well water aren't harmful although the smell can hurt! In cases where there is a lot of sulfur, digestive distress can happen, including diarrhea. I have not read any studies that say blood clots are a risk.
Use of a water filter can remove these concerns.
