Just because it's packaged in a fancy-looking bottle doesn't necessarily make it any better to what comes straight from the tap. Here are some several surprising facts that you might not know about bottled water:
It may actually just be tap water. Dasani, for example, is just tap water that's been purified and had extra minerals added in. It's not always pure. One study found that many bottled water brands contained chemical contaminants above safe levels. That bottle may not be worth the convenience. It's possible that toxic chemicals in the plastic bottles can leech into the water-maybe not at overtly harmful levels, but why would you want to take a chance?
Bottled water may be driving up oil prices and harming the environment. 17 million barrels of oil per year are used in the production of water bottles. And most of those bottles (nearly 90 percent) are simply tossed in the trash, not recycled.
So now that you read the facts, are you still adamant about sticking to bottled water?
