Bottled Water Good Or Bad?

 

Water, water everywhere but not a drop to drink

You feel you have heard it before, recollecting those horror scenes showing victims of earthquakes, tsunamis, torrential rain, and flood

No. It is the mantra of everybody  From Australia to Iceland, from Hawaii to San Francisco people are scared to drink water directly from any source

Bottled water carries a declaration that it is 100% pure and free from bacteria and other harmful substances, and is accepted by us as safe to drink

Our body’s demand for water is called thirst. It is quenched by an intake of water
Is pure bottled water needed? Why not some salts and minerals? Why remove the life-saving minerals through osmosis? Many authorities, doing research in human health questions the habit of drinking pure water

They say leeching of minerals through osmosis is not needed and not natural. Is our body genetically designed to accept pure water? Is pure water good for our health? These are the questions many scientists ask now

Pure bottled water is one of the biggest businesses in many developing countries now. The populations of these countries which used to carry their drinking water (mostly drawn from the communal wells) or drink directly from the water taps in railway stations are brainwashed to think only pure water in bottles are fit to drink

Even the people in developed countries cultivated their bias against water available from various sources in public places only a couple of decades ago.
