Bottled Water vs Tap Water
Healthy Water Our #1 Concern!
I know - I talked at length about water not to long ago, why you ask, am I brining it up again? I am bringing it up because too many of us are drinking bottled water thinking it is healthier. Let's explore bottled water vs tap water and just which one is healthier.
WATER QUALITY IS IMPORTANT!
I am not going to talk a lot about it this time because I have included a quick video that sums up the nations water quality. If you didn't read the in-depth newsletter on water several months ago, you may want to view it.
Even bottled water doesn't guarantee you the safety and purity you may think you are getting, In March of 1999, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) released a report called "Bottled Water, Pure Drink or Pure Hype?" The report explains that 60% to 70% of all bottled water is exempt from the FDA's bottled water standards because the water is bottled and sold within the same state. Unless bottled water is transported across state lines, no federal regulations govern its quality!
From the Aquasana Video BLOG - Contamination Protection in drinking water.
The NRDC report concludes that "while much tap water is indeed risky, having compared available data, we conclude that there is no assurance that bottled water is any safer than tap water."
Why would you pay $1 to $4 a gallon just for the perception of drinking a cleaner higher quality water. The fact is that the quality of bottled water is questionable and unknown. Besides bottled water also poses a huge pollution and recycling problem. You are not only not getting what you are paying for, but we are continuing to contribute to the huge waste problem of plastic water bottles.
