Are you wondering whether to continue using bottled water or not? Well, according to research, I would say it is not safe. While many manufacturing companies claim to make BPA-free bottles, there are still cases of this compound from type 7 plastic. Drinking water, especially from bottles with leached plastic can risk chromosomal abnormalities. It is unsafe, especially for pregnant women because they can give birth to babies with defects. The plastic component can also increase infertility in both men and women. Moreover, research links the microplastics to increased number of diseases in adults. Participants in a study who had more BPA levels in urine possibly suffered cardiovascular disease three times more compared to ones with lower amounts. Therefore, it frequent use of bottled water may be unhealthy and I highly discourage it.
