Bottles used for bottling water
Bottled water continues to be one of the fastest growing beverages, with sales of bottled water growing everyday
Bottled water is sold all over the world. It is available in grocery and convenience stores, restaurants, recreation centers, schools, gas stations, and almost everywhere bottled water is a staple stock item. But is bottled water safe?
Keep in mind that plastic is a permeable substance, which oxygen, bacteria, etc., can pass through from the air. The thinner the plastic, the less of a barrier it creates.
Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical that Big Industries use to stabilize epoxy resins and poly-carbonate plastics or hard plastics. It is also used in softer plastics to prevent cracking.
What does that have to do with your drinking water?
It’s important to know that the plastic used for bottled water often contains BPA. It’s known to leach into the water when exposed to heat, which in turn creates “faux estrogen” or what is also known as bad estrogen which is recognized as a cause of ovarian, prostate, and breast cancers. BPA has been found to adversely affect fetuses, infants and children’s brains, and prostate glands. Behavior disorders are also prevalent from BPA contamination leading to hyperactivity and aggression in children.
Once again How safe is it ?
Tap water- also contains harmful chemicals,
However we can monitor our own drinking water from our own homes by doing water testing and making a small investment in a whole house water filtration system.
Why one should invest in a whole house water filtration system?
Clean, pure water is essential for health, and we strongly encourage you to filter the water you use both for drinking and bathing.In fact, immersing yourself in contaminated water may be even more hazardous to your health than drinking it, as the chemicals absorbed through your skin go directly into your blood stream, bypassing your digestive and internal filtration systems.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulates tap water in the U.S., but while there are legal limits on many of the contaminants permitted in municipal water supplies, more than half of the 300+ chemicals detected in U.S. drinking water are not regulated at all.
These are just some of the many, many reasons why we offer free testing to those who are interested in whole house water filtration systems, but furthermore less plastic bottles will greatly reduce our pollution to the environment and save you more money then you truly can imagine.
