Bottled Water

Not because i am a pisces does mean i like to drink :). If i have to choose tea, coffee, syrup, soda and mineral water i will prefer the mineral water. If i have to choose meat, rice, noodle, fish and vegetables i am surely prefer vegetable but not for last off course i will choose fruit :). Is not about being healthy life or somewhat, even for diet nutrition and others. I like to drink mineral water because that one no-smell and no-color. But, eventually i read one article on yahoo which wrote about bottled water. I had known some helpfull information before i read that. Don't let your bottled water left in car, don't let your bottled water directly interacted with heat and sunlight, just use bottled water for once and so on. But, i never known that bottled water, including the most expensive one still contained bacteria even it stated that 'had sterilized'. Just take a look at this.

Bottled water isn’t always pure
Scan the labels of the leading brands and you see variations on the words “pure” and “natural” and “pristine” over and over again. And when a Cornell University marketing class studied consumer perceptions of bottled water, they found that people thought it was cleaner, with less bacteria. But that may not actually be true. For example, in a 4-year review that included the testing of 1,000 bottles of water, the Natural Resources Defense Council—one the country’s most ardent environmental crusaders—found that “about 22 percent of the brands we tested contained, in at least one sample, chemical contaminants at levels above strict state health limits.”

It’s not clear where the plastic container ends and the drink begins
Turns out, when certain plastics are heated at a high temperature, chemicals from the plastics may leach into container’s contents. So there’s been a flurry of speculation recently as to whether the amounts of these chemicals are actually harmful, and whether this is even a concern when it comes to water bottles—which aren’t likely to be placed in boiling water or even a microwave. While the jury is still out on realistic health ramifications, it seems that, yes, small amounts of chemicals from PET water bottles such as antimony—a semi-metal that’s thought to be toxic in large doses—can accumulate the longer bottled water is stored in a hot environment. Which, of course, is probably a good reason to avoid storing bottled water in your garage for six months—or better yet, to just reach for tap instead.

In my opinion after read this, i think is better to take bottled water that container is a cup from your own kitchen, and it contains a product that has passed strict state, federal and local guidelines for cleanliness and quality. Hey ... don't be paranoia after read this and don't keep any suggestion feeling that bottled water is harmful. I just share my thought, opinion and information that i know. So ... just be carefull.
