CLEAN DRINKING WATER
Most water provided to the public contributes to sickness and disease.
You may want to rethink drinking from water bottles and from the tap:
Drinking water from plastic water bottles has been shown to have negative affects on your body and our environment. Financially, you already know that buying a bottle of water costs more than filling a glass or reusable bottle at the tap. So, if it can make you sick, why do it?
Drinking Bottled Water
According to the Container Recycling Institute, the beverage market share of bottled water increased rapidly from 2 percent in 1997 to 14 percent in 2005. Bottled water has a reputation for being cleaner than tap water, but the Natural Resources Defense Council reports there is no guarantee that it is any better. In fact, the NRDC estimates that at least one in four bottles of water contains tap water itself. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulates bottled water by establishing quality standards, but "Consumer Reports" notes that tap water must meet higher safety standards than bottled water, and no law requires companies bottling water to provide safety testing results to consumers or to the FDA.
Plastic drinking bottles contain many chemicals, some of which interfere with hormones in the body. These chemicals include bisphenol-A, or BPA, and phthalates, among others. Chemicals in the plastic can leach into bottled water, especially when exposed to heat or when the bottle is old. Different types of plastic---indicated by the number inside the triangle of arrows on the bottom of the bottle---contain different chemicals. Bottlers generally use the type of plastic labeled "1," and identified by the letters PET or PETE. Advocacy groups including the Natural Resources Defense Council and Sierra Club have pointed out evidence of harmful chemicals leaching into food or water and have called for further research to ensure safety.
When you're on the go, carry water with you in metal bottles, which are safer than plastic, according to the Natural Resources Defense Council. Metal drinking bottles can be filled---and refilled---with tap water; the metal won't leach chemicals into your water. Most Tap water is still contaminated and not truly pure. The NRDC and "Consumer Reports" provide resources on checking your tap water's safety.
Although water filters cost money, you will save in the long run if you filter water at home rather than purchasing bottled water as your main source of drinking water.
