Most of us don’t usually pay for something you can get for free. But yet many of us willingly pay a few dollars for a bottle of water. We may just be victims of the marketing machine that has turned into a $100 billion dollar industry. However, bottled water isn’t the fancy water you’ve been led to believe. In fact, 40 percent of bottled water is actually regular tap water. The same is true for Smartwater. Did you know that Glaceau SmartWater is made/owned by the Coca Cola Company? The water in the SmartWater bottle isn’t anything special. It’s not going to make you healthy or give your body nutrients any more than any other water would.
The plastic used to make water bottles is full of chemicals. Most plastic bottles contain BPA – bisphenol-A. It’s a toxic chemical that is linked to major health problems. (here) Plastic water bottles also contain phthalates; they mimic hormones in your body. If left in the sun or exposed to heat, these chemicals are leaked in the water.
Don’t be fooled by people making big money off slick marketing!
