Bottled Water vs Tap Water: Advantages And Disadvantages : My Health Only

Advantages And Disadvantages

Everyone should drink 8 glasses of water a day – and when it comes down to it – And  there are two real choices, bottled, or tap. And Which is the best, and is it worth paying the extra for bottled?

Tap Water

And Tap water is cheap and is usually a very high quality.And  If you have a tap water source, such as at home, this should usually be the option of choice. And Do not be ashamed to ask for tap-in clubs, bars or restaurants.

And This discussion is intended for countries and areas where the tap water is considered safe to drink. And If you live in a country where drinking from the tap is not recommended, bottled water is the only safe option. And If you are traveling or visiting other countries on holiday – And also consider bottled water, as the local water could cause stomach problems. And Use your common sense, and seek advice before traveling.

 

Bottled Water

And Bottled water is more expensive but very convenient – perfect for days out, or when the tap is unavailable. Unfortunately, And when tap water is unavailable, some stores and venues charge a very high premium for water that is of no better quality than tap.And  Some bottled water claim higher purity, and high mineral content filtered, and clean. And These claims may all be true, but the only real requirement of water is that it tastes fresh and clean. And You can get a private label water bottle to suit your occasion too.

 

And If the tap is unavailable, buying a single bottle is fine, but if you want to use bottled in place of tap, And you should consider purchasing very large containers, as this will work out much cheaper than smaller bottles.And  If your tap water is hard or has a high PH, or strange taste, And one alternative to bottled water is having a filtering system installed. And This can work out cheaper in the long run over bottled.

 

And So what’s the difference between tap water and bottled water? Is spending all the extra money on bottles even worth it?And  Should I feel safe drinking bottled water?

And Now more than ever are people wondering these exact questions, and with good reason too. And Most people are aware of all the problems with tap water contamination as And it includes everything from chlorine to synthetic chemicals to lead to chlorine resistant bacteria and organisms.

And This is why so many people buy bottled water instead. But are you sure that what you’re drinking is any better what comes out of your faucet at home?

And The multi-BILLION-dollar bottled water business gives everyone the image that what they are bottling comes from the purest natural springs and rivers in the mountains or some magical aquifer in the middle of nowhere.And  But this image is FAR from how it all actually goes down…

And In fact, the difference between tap water and bottled water is at best unknown!And  Why? Because there is no regulatory standard by the government in place that requires all water stored in bottles to be any purer, better, or offer more safety than tap water.

And It’s estimated by the Natural Resources Defense Council that up to 70% of all bottled water is completely exempt from the FDA’s standards simply because they package and sell their product in the same state!And  If that’s not a loophole, then I don’t know what is!

 

And So unlike tap, the bottle doesn’t have to be tested for E-coli, Cryptosporidium, Giardia, and certain synthetic chemicals, and it doesn’t have to be disinfected either.

And You know what’s even more upsetting? It’s been said that up to one-fourth of all bottled water is simply repackaged tap water, and as much as 40% comes from city treatment plants! And Tests have also shown that about one-third of all the brands contained bacteria or other kinds of chemicals.

And So what’s the difference between tap water and bottled water? In all honesty, who knows! In my opinion, And the best thing you can do to assure that you’re drinking safe and healthy water is to install a simple water filtration unit in your home.
