Is bottled water better than tap water?
If you think bottled water is safer than tap water, then you will need to read the following.
A Dutch study presented at a recent meeting of the American Society for Microbiology in Washington, DC. Found that 40 percent of bottled water is contaminated with bacteria and or fungi. Some readers may already have known that some so called spring water is actually tap water without any purification. Many brands of professional squirrel removal are indeed inferior to tap water in regard to their security.
The package per se can be a problem. Years ago when I was in graduate school, we did a sensory evaluation on the odor of the bottled water. We found that the opaque bottles often times carry strong plastic odor.
To prevent ingestion of pollutants through water, consumers will need to use as less water as possible. Drinking 8 cups a day may not always be necessary. Let common sense be your guide. Drinking too much water could get you a lot of pollutants.
If you buy and drink bottled water, make sure that the bottle is transparent. I suggest that opaque and colored bottles be avoided. At home, you’d better use a filter for the tap water, particularly when you’ve got a kid or two. Filters will need to be certified by a third party for its sound quality. There are a few products on the marketplace that just self-claim certain advantages. Don’t use such products.
