6 Interesting Facts About Bottled Water

May 03, 2011 1 Comment by
  1. An estimated 25 percent of bottled water is actually filtered tap water.
  2. Mineral water is often high in sodium.
  3. Unlike municipal water supplies, bottled water may not contain enough fluoride to protect against cavities.
  4. It’s not a good idea to reuse plastic water bottles. Washing and reusing them over and over may accelerate the breakdown of the plastic, increasing your exposure to potentially harmful chemicals.
  5. Check the bottling date and best-before date to find out how fresh the water is. Bottled water normally contains low numbers of harmless bacteria, but if the water is stored for long periods at room temperatures, these bacteria can multiply rapidly. It’s best to store the water in a cool place.
  6. Opened containers of bottled water should be refrigerated in case potentially harmful bacteria have been introduced.
