Bottled water vs. tap water: The pros and cons

by , 22 April 2013

There are a lot of opinions on bottled water vs. tap water. Some people say bottled water isn't safe because plastic bottles are poisonous. Others believe it's best to steer clear of tap water because it contains fluoride and chlorine. Read on to find out the pros and cons when it comes to your drinking water.

“The fact that 70% of your body is made up of water is only one reason why you should be drinking the cleanest, purest water in the world,” says FSP Health.

But do you know what’s inside the water you’re drinking?

Here’s what you should know about your drinking water

The truth is most municipal water supplies contain fluoride and chlorine. Both these chemicals have been implicated in numerous health concerns.

And while bottled water may seem like the wise alternative, it’s not that safe.

“The plastic bottles holding that water contain a substance called Bisphenol A, a chemical that mimics oestrogen activity in both humans and animals. Bisphenol A is a potential carcinogen and may also increase your risk of Type II diabetes,” warns Dr Jonathan Wright of Nutrition & Healing.

But, avoiding Bisphenol A isn’t as easy as boycotting bottled water.

Bisphenol A is one of the 50 top-produced chemicals in the world. It’s the building block of most plastic products and it’s also one of the primary ingredients in the resins used to line over 100 billion different canned products.

So while people are finally starting to catch on to the dangers of Bisphenol A “who knows how long it will be until it’s wiped out from the supermarket shelves,” says Dr Wright.

But it’s not all doom and gloom.

There’s a safer option to clean and safe drinking water.

Dr Wright recommends using a water filter to purify your drinking water.

“Invest in a high-quality water filter that will eliminate the potentially harmful chemicals from your tap water and make sure to use only filtered water to make ice cubes,” advises Dr Wright.
