Water is essential for life and since the body is made with over 10 gallons of it, drinking clean water is vital to your health. Unfortunately, many people’s water drinking habits go unquestioned and it may be a complete surprise that some water is quite unhealthy.
You see them available almost anywhere you go: plastic bottles containing filtered, spring, or mineral water. Regardless of the type of water found inside, drinking bottled water has been on the rise for the past decade.
Research by Miguel F. Doria from the Centre for Environmental Risk in Norwich found that some people believe that drinking bottled water is a way to improve their health.
Further research published by the AGU Journal also suggest that people are buying bottled water to avoid the risks of contaminants in tap water (see Case Study #2 for more details).
When water bottle companies became popular in the 1970s, they used celebrities to endorse their products to make it trendy and attractive. On top of the perception that tap water is unsafe, this may be creating a dependency to obtain clean water from profit-driven bottling companies.
It was in the early 2000s that controversy over water bottle companies began to surface to the public’s eye. When the former CEO of Nestle, Peter Brabek, made a comment saying that water is not a human right but instead a foodstuff commodity to be sold, it sparked a lot of anger.
The fact that water bottle companies are focused on driving profits instead of sustainable, and healthy drinking water is frightening. In 2013 are massive safety scandal erupted in China because Nongfu Spring, one of China’s leading water bottle suppliers, were using water sources with higher than normal levels of arsenic (of course, our Aquaperform system is NSF-certified to remove Arsenic V).
North American companies have also had similar issues with recalls occurring at a manufacturing facility in Pennsylvania due to an E. coli outbreak. Here’s the complete list of brands that were recalled:
You are what you drink, literally. Since water makes up most of the human body it is important to consume healthy amounts on a daily basis. Unfortunately, some of the chemicals being added to our water can have both short term and long term consequences.
Here are a few of the chemicals that might be in your water and the effects it has on your body:
