Will you get sick from the danger of low quality bottled water? Of course you can if the bottle you drink from is contaminated with something your body canâ€™t tolerate.
The National Resource Defense Council (NRDC) findings from a four-year scientific study of more than 1000 bottles of water showed about one third of the bottles were contaminated.Â Contaminates of synthetic organic chemicals, bacteria, and arsenic were found to exceed the allowable limits under both state and water industry standards.
The danger of low quality bottled water is real and you can get diseases from the toxins.
A key finding is that the bottled H2O regulations are inadequate, mainly because the FDA rules exempt water that is not transported over state lines from their regulations.
60% â€“ 70% of bottled falls into this category.Â And 20% of the states have no regulations on bottled water either.
Even the bottled H2O that is regulated under FDA rules doesnâ€™t have to under go the same rigorous testing that city water goes through.Â For instance, any bottled water you drink from isnâ€™t required to be filtered to remove pathogens, which are micro-organisms or viruses that cause disease.Â This is one of the requirements of your city water.
If your immune system is weakened, such as some infants, cancer patients, transplant patients, the frail elderly, or those with HIV/AIDS, drinking a bottle of contaminated water can cause you serious health problems and even be fatal.
With the concern over tap water being pure and free from contaminates you may be asking what can a person do to protect against the danger of low quality bottled water, and the answer is simple.Â Install a home water filter.
Having a home water filter assures you of clean healthy drinking water at all times.Â The company I bought mine from has won the award for Best Buy for 6 years from Consumer Digest.Â I filter my water at a cost of only 9 cents per gallon.
You wonâ€™t find a better <a href="http://www.home-water-filter-site.com">home water filter </a> than I use.Â They even carry stainless steel water bottles so you can bottle your own and take it with you in order to have fresh clean water wherever you are.Â Check it out today by visiting my web site listed in the bio section below.About the Author:
