It is within a few percent of pure water specific heat, won't it be enough?

Thank you for your attention,Borek.
You mean that I can use the specific heat of Normal Saline as equal as the specific heat of pure water.
and I've seen some website told like this,too. I found some results told that the properties is as same as pure water such as boiling point,melting point,..but
It's necessary to have a evidence to support this issue for my graduating bachelor degree's project.
please,help.
