An article by Brooke Nelson Dani Walpole, Reader’s Digest, is back in the news: [Most of us don’t think twice about refilling our plastic water bottles. After all, it’s all in the name of personal hydration and it’s eco-friendly! And there’s absolutely nothing harmful about a simple bottle of water, right?
Wrong! That plastic water bottle could actually do your body more harm than good, experts say. Why? You can thank Bisphenol A (commonly known as BPA), a chemical used to manufacture plastics, for your water woes. This harmful chemical can leach into the water and quickly grow dangerous bacteria in the bottle’s cracks—that’s one of the reasons you should stay away from straws, too—and the health consequences are pretty serious.]
Anyone, who has read this blog, knows that buying bottled water is a no-no. Forget about the BPA, bottled water is just overpriced filtered tap water from a company. Instead of wasting money on a trashy product, why not invest in a decent water filter? And don’t get suckered into believing the “convenience” of bottled water.
