SUMMARY: Bottled water is not the best choice for when drinking water, but if you choose to drink bottled water, make intelligent decisions.
There are several reasons not to drink bottled water. There are literally tons of discarded plastic bottles in landfills and in our oceans.
Plastic water bottles take countless years to biodegrade and some may not ever biodegrade.
Cheap plastic bottles leach up to 25,000 toxic chemicals into the water. During the bottling process, water is injected into the bottles when they are at a very high temperature forming a chemical soup.
Water is a perfect solvent, making it a carrier of chemicals in bottled water; obviously not an image that correlates to optimal health.
If you have a choice when choosing a plastic bottle of water, the harder the better as far as your health is concerned.
Best Choice: Use glass bottles or stainless steel containers when available in order to avoid the toxic chemicals associated with plastic.
Do some comparison shopping and get yourself a high quality Water Filter or high quality Filtered Water.
