Bottled water comes from your own tap water sources…they just treat it differently then sell it back to you and make billions a year, while the EPA allows such low standards of quality that most people have no idea that they are drinking acidic water and in many cases water with contaminates in them beyond their own tap water. Yes, the beautiful bottle water can be recalled. And when the EPA has allowed the water companies to do their own testing….there has NOT BEEN GOOD OVERSIGHT!
But, don’t worry….most companies put disclaimers out for you to try and find…like Aquafina bottled by Pepsi co. Here is their disclaimer.
CONTAMINANTS IN WATER: Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the United States Food and Drug Administration, Food and Cosmetic Hotline (1-888-723-3366). In order to ensure that bottled water is safe to drink, the United States Food and Drug Administration and the State Department of Public Health prescribe laws and regulations that limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by bottled water companies.
Some persons may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons, including, but not limited to, persons with cancer who are undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, persons with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly persons, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These persons should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. The United States Environmental Protection Agency and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by cryptosporidium and other microbial contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (1-800-426-4791). INFORMATION ON PRODUCT RECALLS: If you would like to know whether a particular bottled water product has been recalled or is being recalled, please visit the FDA’s website: http://www.fda.gov/opacom/7alerts.html.
Does that make you feel safer? How about this:
BOTTLED WATER INFORMATION
Aquafina is purified drinking water that meets and exceeds the requirements set forth by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as well as local regulatory requirements.
Our Aquafina plants each conduct on average tests daily, 95 tests weekly, and − when we include off-site monitoring, 102,000 tests annually to assure the consistent quality of our Aquafina bottled water.
Note it states, IT EXCEEDS THE EPA REQUIREMENTS AND WHEN WE INCLUDE OFF’SITE MONITORING. It should be every batch of that stuff should be monitored by outside reliable sources.Click here to read more.
I’m still wondering…why doesn’t Aquafina bottled water freeze? Does it depend on where the batch of water was pumped from? And as some have said, is it radioactive?
Then there is Nestle bottled water company. It has many brand names for your water.
They have taken it from your natural resources, purchased it for pennies and sold it back to you because you have to have water to live. Selling you back your own water is a billion dollar business and now that they have the contracts to do it.. they will suck it out of the water until it is gone. Meanwhile you aren’t supposed to know it does not come from some spring in paradise. It is all dead water! Dead, dead, dead!!
Our government has allowed this and we the people have bought into their scam. Other water companies have done the same, meanwhile industries have been allowed to dump toxic waste in the water and pollute wells, and all our water ways. Is anyone beginning to see the big picture here? The EPA HAS ALLOWED ALL OF THIS FOR GENERATIONS AND WE NEED IT ALL TO STOP!
In a Clark report they have tested all the bottled water and have this to say: Team Clark, is adamant that they will never write content influenced by or paid for by an advertiser.
“I know there are scares from time to time with the safety of tap water. But I continue to believe tap water is safer than bottled water because it’s tested many times a day in most municipalities. Bottled water, on the other hand, is only tested several times a year in some facilities.” Clark. Read Clark Report here.
What ever you choose to buy and drink – at least be aware of how you ended up like this. Having nothing safe to drink at home and thinking bottled water is the alternative. People should be dang angry at the EPA and the past administrations, and all those in congressional halls who allowed it to grow into this monster!
