Are you picking the right kind of bottled water? When you go to the store how often do you take the time to check the bottle before buying?
Companies are obligated to label the contents of their products. When it comes to picking your water you need to look for a few things on the label. The thing below are exactly what you should be looking for when checking labels.
PETE or PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate)
These release chemicals and heavy metals that are known to affect the production of hormones in the body.
This is something you will see most often on fast food casings and coffee cups. This type of plastic releases carcinogens into the content.
This is a semi-transparent more white plastic that is often added to the plastic used for yogurt cups and syrup packages. This is one of the more safe plastic types.
LDPE (Low-Density Polyethylene)
This is added to plastic bags usually and is not really fit for the production of plastic bottles. However, it does not release any chemicals as far as we know.
Non-Labelled Plastic or PC
This is the most dangerous plastic it releases BPA and is used in the production of food containers as well as sports water bottles.
