Is It Right to Drink Bottled Water?

People use the water fountain instead of using bottled water

Drinking bottled water has become a part of our mobile life. Where ever we go, we have to consume it, but do you know the health impact of the liquid what we consume bottled. Many of the research scholars have questioned the prevalence of this sealed packaged bottled water. It has also been seen in elite countries especially in the USA, people offer water fountain instead of offering bottled water.

Avoid bottled liquid as much as you can

People will rarely tend to avoid drinking bottled liquid because the other sources such as ground water are saline and that of tap do not bear hygienic quality, and it is not feasible to use RO everywhere. Besides seeing difficulties in accessibility to the fresh hygienic water experts and researchers are suggesting to avoid the consumptions of this bottled liquid as much as possible.

The quality of bottled liquid is under the scanner

Many companies’ quotes, they are presenting water directly from the fresh natural sources to our location in pristine form. But how much that liquid remains pristine is under the scanner. Many other companies say they purify the ground water and convert them to a hygienic form using UV rays and other technologies. The wrong practices of mafias have been seen on camera several times at several places. These mafias have duplicates of all the water brands. So the quality of the liquid bottled in plastic cane has always been under the scanner.

BPA molecules are very harmful

The BPA molecules present in the plastic bottle can be easily mixed with the contained liquid and toxicates that liquid. Drinking that can easily create health setbacks. In case the temperature of the surroundings increases the BPA molecules become mobile and the probability of toxicating the liquid inside increases.

Use of plastic bottles increase carbon footprints

Many companies used to advocates, they use bio-degradable plastic, but it has been studied in the university of California, that out of seven plastic bottles six are not degraded right. In addition to manufacturing these plastic bottles, we have to use trees. So domestication of plastic bottles will not only create health issues for us but it will also export extra burden on neighbours and the future generations to come.

What could be the relevant alternate?

The practice of natural purifier at every door step could be a right alternative but it is really not so easy to be plotted. Carrying water in copper or steel container can also be a wise choice. Can we not imagine the premium quality drinking water supply at every corner? Jal Board needs to root out illegal practices from every level and proper accountability with transparency need to be established to win the trust of users and supply the premium quality liquid.

Use of reusable premium quality steel or copper coated bottle by water companies can also be the best alternative.
