Bellevue Nutrition | Your Bottled Water….

Just in ~ when you are drinking your bottled water you may be getting far more than you bargained for! An analysis of 259 bottles of water, from 11 brands in nine countries (US included) found that 93% contained microplastics! Microplastics are tiny bits of plastic resulting from breakdown in our andfills and the ocean.

When tap water was analyzed it was found to have just half the level of microplastics of bottled (plastic) water. At this point there are no standards for safe limits of microplastics in bottled water.

This is a bit of a conundrum if one is hooked on plastic, bottled water. To begin with, plastic has been found to be an unsafe container for bottled water as estrogen-mimicking materials slough off into the water. A far better container would be one made of glass, ceramic or stainless steel. Many outdoor stores (think REI) have gone to mostly stainless steel. An added benefit is steel keeps the water extra cool ☺

Many offices now have clean bottled water delivered in five gallon carboys. Just pop over with your glass or coffee cup and fill up! Google your location to find companies that make custom water filtration systems that remove fluoride and chlorine, along with other toxins. If you live in the Seattle area you could be the proud owner of a Custom Pure filtration system, which incorporates both ionic filtration tanks and carbon filters. I’ve been an extremely happy owner for the past 18 years.

Whatever your decision, consider making an agreement with yourself to cease purchasing and drinking plastic bottled water!
