bottled-water

Water is life, and we can not live without it. Our day to day routine job like bathing, washing, cooking require water. But with the evolution of human, our usual sources of water are becoming polluted and it is no longer safe may lead to host of diseases. Our yearn to get clean and healthy water, have given rise to multi-billion dollar companies, who provide bottled water claiming it is safe, pure and free from bacteria.  Gradually drinking bottled water is becoming a trend. Advertisements claiming that our bottled water will make you fresh and healthy are giving encouragement to using bottled water craze. But are the claims that we heard about bottled water are actually close. In this article, we will examine the validity of bottled water.

Is it truly safe and pure:

We all believe that bottled water is safe, but there is no guarantee. According to the four-year study conducted by NRDC on around 1000 bottled water there is no guarantee that bottled water will be safer as well as cleaner than our normal tap water.  In a study, it was found that more than 25% bottled water are just tap-water. Most of them are just filtered tap water.

Bottled water taste better due to added minerals and additive. But they are not such helpful to us as they claim. Also, the claim natural and pure may not be the case with most of the products. A study conducted by CERS discovers that even branded water contains bacteria in it. Some of the bottle revealed foreign material, which is a violation of norms Use of plastic for storing water:

Use of plastic for storing water:

Use of plastic for storing water is not particularly safe. Studies show that a chemical named phthalates can leach into the water from plastic over time. This chemical is known to disrupt testosterone and other hormones. Other than this using plastic is terribly unfortunate for the environment. Yearly around 1.5 million of plastic is used in industries for making water and the side product are nickel, ethylbenzene, ethylene oxide and benzene which are toxins. Plastic disposal is another question. Most of the used plastic goes as junk or ocean which pose a risk to water livings.

So fundamentally you should get a water purifier in your house, which is more economical than using bottled water.
