Bottles Water: Deadlier and Costlier
Bottles Water: Deadlier and Costlier

A deadly toxin is getting into mineral water from the plastic used to make the bottles, according to Dr. William Shotyk of Heidelberg University, the well-known expert found traces of antimony in bottled drinking water. His report will be published in the upcoming issue of the journal of the Royal Society of Chemistry. Antimony is a chemical used in the manufacture of the polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles used by most bottled water companies. It is a potentially lethal toxin that can cause illness and depression in small amounts and violent vomiting and even death in high concentrations. The problem is that antimony levels doubled when the bottles of water were stored for three months. With sell-by dates on bottled water extending up to two years, one can readily identify with health concerns.

In Europe, 48 brands of water in PET bottles had only 4 ppt of antimony, as ground water from its source at a German bottling plant. After being bottled, water level of antimony jumped to 360 ppt in the newly bottled water and then to 700 ppt, in water stored three months unopened.

The Seven Deadly Sins of Bottled Water!

1. Bottled water is often a con, and is really just purified tap water -- around 40% begins as tap water. For instance, it was revealed recently, Aquafina (Pepsi) was drawn from the city of Detroit's water system, while it was revealed that Dasani, Coca-Cola's brand, in the UK, used purified tap-water from a factory in Sid-Cup, Kent in 2004. In addition, it was revealed Dasani was contaminated with the chemical bromate which can cause cancer. Coca-Cola had to pull the entire line of Dasani water off the shelves. The bottled water scam of glossy pristine mountains streams and crystal clear pools are marketing images.

2. Bottled water is not always healthier. A four year study conducted by the National Resources Defense Council concluded that at least one third of 103 brands surveyed contained varying levels of contamination. Furthermore, bottled water often has added minerals that, in high doses, may be harmful. Consumers in France who drink bottled water are advised to change brands regularly.

3. Bottled water encourages the commodification of water. The bottled water industry is worth a fortune, currently about $100 billion a year, which has made the ownership of water around the globe a hot commodity for corporations. Furthermore, the privatization of water around the world, especially in the developing world (such as in Africa and South America), has meant that water is becoming inaccessible to the poor. Water-rich areas often see their water packaged and shipped abroad to richer markets. Bottled water is just another sign of the fight to control the world's water. Plus, it is projected that by 2025, two thirds of the world's population will have difficulty accessing safe drinking water.

4. Bottled water encourages depletion of natural resources. Many brands of bottled water take it directly from the source. This water is taken and used far too quickly for these water sources to replenish themselves. In Frayeburg, Maine (USA), for example, so much water has been removed from the local natural spring near Lovewell Pond that the water quality of the pond is deteriorating. In India, Coca-Cola's manufacturing and bottling plants are depleting the natural water resources so rapidly, the people are opposed to the corporation. These are just two of many examples that are exacerbated by increased population, receding glaciers and droughts as a result of global warming. Many communities around the world face water scarcity as a result of over-use by the bottle water industry.

5. Bottled water encourages waste and pollution. All that plastic packaging is made from oil; it is estimated that the US alone uses 1.5 million barrels of oil to make bottled water containers. Don't think it gets recycled! Over 80% of the packaging in the US ends up as garbage. All that plastic has a shelf life of around 1000 years, so the problem will not just go away.

6. Bottled water contributes to healthcare cost. Baby bottles and other disposable plastic water and beverage bottles are made from compounds using PET, which contains a potentially carcinogenic element called Diethylhydroxylamine, or DEHA. - A well-known chemical called Bisphenol or BPA, which adversely affect fertility in women. These carcinogens affect children's mental and general health, including their reproductive system. While these adverse affects are now well known facts, there is much more yet to be discovered.

7. Bottled water helps contribute to war. With water scarcity an increasing issue, reports project that by 2025, like oil today, Africa will face increasing incidences of wars between water rich states and water poor states. Even analysts for corporations such as Coca-Cola have made bleak assessments for the future of the world's water supply. Their hopes are that technology will alleviate the problem, and scarcity will encourage better management of resources, but experience has shown that management will be based upon profits and the richest consumers. Regardless, it is clear that, just like oil has helped fuel wars, conflicts and terrorism, so to will water scarcity, and bottled water contributes to this future. See and

Heb een poosje geleden een docu gezien op Canvas over flessen water, geloof dat het ook over Fuji water ging, om die flessen water over de hele wereld te brengen was onwijs slecht voor het milieu(duh!) en dat de lokale bevolking zelf geen of amper schoon drinkwater tot hun beschikking hebben.

Natuurlijk is water uit de fles niet gezonder, het drinkwater uit veel kranen is beter en gezonder dan dat flessenwater, ook willen de water bedrijven dat je hun flesjes niet gebruikt om er kraanwater uit te gebruiken, is erg vies en kun je ziek van worden, ONZIN!
Als je echt zo'n sukkel bent dat je je flesje niet om de zoveel tijd schoonmaakt is het je eigen schuld, verder zijn er zat goeie lege flesjes te koop die je keer op keer "gratis" onder je eigen kraan kan vullen.

Ook is het onzin dat je zoveel liter per dag moet drinken, je krijgt nl ook vocht binnen via ander drinken en zo kan ik nog wel even door gaan.

Een hele enkele keer een flesje water kopen kan geen kwaad, want als ik op LowLands lig dan kan ik niet 1 2 3 een kraan vinden die mij water wil geven en dan is het even niet anders, maar voor de rest, kraan open en drinken maar.
I Love Mokkelboulevard!..................for me to poop on.

Iemand bedanken kost minder tijd dan op een bedankje te wachten.
