Reason of writing this article is that it is really painful to see that my own family members and friends got addicted to plastic bottles for drinking water. I am in agreement that plastic bottles are very convenient to carry and extremely cost-effective to afford every time while purchasing new and destroying older ones, but these are the only few benefits.
Everywhere you might be listening the cacophony to stop using plastic bottles. May be you also fall in the group of those who only preaches to others but never did anything to stop using it and replacing with other healthier option.
I believe, you are aware of these facts about plastic bottles:
- Plastic bottles are not environment friendly and are non-renewable resource. Average plastic bottle take around 500 years to decompose.
- Plastic drinking bottles contain hazardous chemicals, some of which may interfere with the body hormones. Chemicals include Bisphenol-A commonly known as BPA, phthalates, among others. In 2012, the United State’s Food and Drug Administration banned the use of BPA in baby bottles. Measurement of BPA levels in serum/ body fluids suggests the possibilities that BPA intake is much higher than it should be or that BPA can bioaccumulate in some conditions like pregnancy.
- Toxics present in plastic bottles may cause diseases like – Metabolic diseases, Thyroid function, Neurological effects, Cancer, Breast cancer, Neuroblastoma, Fertility, Sexual function, Asthma.
- As per wikipedia “A 2011 experiment by researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health indicated that BPA used in the lining of food cans is absorbed by the food and then ingested by consumers”. As per an study conducted in US, around 96% of the women have considerable BPA in their bodies.
- Chemicals in the plastic can leach into bottled water, especially when exposed to heat or bottle became old.
- Ocean, rivers, lakes, reservoirs became the largest dumping ground of used bottles and other plastic material and again pollute the water, again which will be consumed by us. Millions of animals get badly affected due to this. This video is shockingly eye-opener for you:
7. There is no guarantee that bottle water is better than your RO water.
The problems caused by plastic bottles has become so dangerous and out of control, that only government, regulators or industry can control this. If they are not doing then it shows that the Industrial lobby is so powerful that they manipulate the regulators and governments.
In this scenario, only you can take the step forward by stopping yourself & your dear ones from using plastic bottles. For this you must provide them the option which is tried and tested. I am sure everyone has to compromise on cost-effectiveness.
For every creature on earth, life is not possible without oxygen and water. Consuming good quality of both is the base of good health. Water alone can cure many health problems and drinking sufficient water daily is essential for existence of our life.
