To all of my friends: I STRONGLY recommend you stop drinking bottled water for your own safety. I watched a documentary on Netflix last night called ”Tapped”. In it they explained how our tap water is highly regulated by the FDA and tested over 10 times a day. On the other hand bottle water is NOT regulated at all by the FDA – rather, the bottle water companies are in charge of regulating themselves and submitting the reports to the FDA. In the documentary they had many third party scientists test the water from bottled water and they found many extremely harmful chemicals (more than I can list here). Most of these chemicals cause infertility in both women and men. Some of the chemicals are even extremely dangerous carcinogens.
On top of the terrible health risks you incur from drinking bottled water, the three major bottle water companies (Pepsi, Coke, and Nestle) are ”water mining” many rural areas and legally stealing the water from these communities, even when they’re in a drought. One report in the documentary said that they sucked one town so dry that the nursing home had to have the fire department come and bring them water for weeks.
And of course there’s also the obvious reason to not drink bottled water and that is it’s terrible for the environment. Only 50% of the united states even has curb-side recycling available to them and I’m sure much less than those people actually do recycle their used bottled water. Roughly $8 Billion dollars was spent on bottled water last year… I’m not gonna do the math for you but suffice it to say there are billions of plastic water bottles thrown out every year (yes Billions, with a ”B”).
In conclusion I’d like to just remind people that the corporatocracy currently ruling humanity does not give a shit about us. So before you eat food in which you can’t pronounce half the ingredients, believe the mainstream media, think we’re going into a war not because of oil, or believe any other ridiculous thing we’re supposed to believe – I beg you – do you own research. This is the first time in human history that nearly all the answers to the questions we could ask are merely a keystroke away.
