Water Hazards in Packaging for Body Health

So far we think that bottled drinking water packaging is drinking water that is free from danger. Drinking water companies are campaigning for their care of nature. Bottled water advertisements also tend to boast that bottled water is better and keep your body fresh. But you know, actually bottled drinking water is also dangerous. Here are 10 reasons not to consume bottled water.
Packaging

Water Packaging Causes Cancer

Research shows that drinking bottled mineral water can cause cancer. Plastics are the most commonly used materials for packaging. Food products even use plastic to pack. The difference is that food is usually preserved which makes them long-lasting. But what about water? The bottles have traveled so far before reaching the store. Although well packed, water begins to absorb harmful chemicals from plastics that can cause cancer.

Selling Garbage

Never get swayed by the ads you see on tv stating water can make you fresher or healthier. The use of water is all the same that prevents the body from lack of fluids. Do not waste money on something you can make yourself. At least you can still boil water at home, right?

Causes Sterility

As the plastic comes in contact with water continuously, the plastic will release chemicals called Phthlate. This toxic substance will settle in your body and cause cancer and sterility.

Less Security Standardization

Very few people know that the bottled water industry is the least regulated industry. There is no clear standard set for bottled water. There are no specific rules governing filtration, clarification, packaging, and transportation of water in clear bottle packaging. Now you can imagine not what water you drink actually?

Hurt the Human Side

Did you know, most people spend money to buy drinking water? While there are more than 700 million people who still can not access clean drinking water to date. This should hurt the human side when many people spend extra money just to buy bottled water.

Being a luxury

On average a person needs about 2 liters of water per day for their body. If calculated, it means someone needs more than 700 liters of water. Imagine the amount of money you must spend to buy bottled water. Though you can use the money for other more important purposes.

The largest Contributor to Plastic Waste

Although there have been steps to recycle, the effort is still less than the environmental damage caused by the use of plastic. Well, when you consume bottled drinking water, you have become a contributor to the plastic waste.

Waste of Petroleum

The springs used by the company are usually very far away from the processing industry. Not to mention when distributing the bottled water to stores all over Indonesia. In the process, bottled water companies use petroleum which in fact is a non-renewable natural resource. Not to mention the pollution caused by the use of petroleum. Think again when you want to buy bottled water.
