No. Hardwater buildup is inorganic lime related compounds and they do not get in the blood stream in any quantity. Besides, animal fat that you eat does not directly cause clogging problems - the clogs are not animal fat - but the saturated fats of all kinds, animal or vegetable result in more clogging materials in the blood stream.
