      The Facts About Bottled Water


      CUCHSUX

        great info. unfortunately "in the now", too much $ is being made.

        the worst thing you can do for someone drowning in shark infested waters is throw them a life preserver. don't you think?

          Bottled water is still safer than tap water once you factor in germ infested SIGG or Nalgene bottles, or even glassware that you wash every use.

           

          The only safe way to drink tap water is to use styrofoam solo cups which defeats the purpose.

           

           

          I understand that it's bad on the environment, but I just care too much for my health to drink tap water.

            Help me understand what is wrong with my glassware.

             

            And what kind of germs infest my Nalgene?


            i sacrificed the gift

              It's just simple that glassware sitting on a shelf is going to have more germs than a hermetic sealed environment.

               

               

              If you wash your nalgene good with hot water and soap after every use, congrats, you have much better hygiene than 99.9% of users.

                But in terms of safety you're basically talking about the difference between using a remote to change the channel from the couch and getting up and walking to the tv.  Neither is a remotely dangerous activity.

                    Yes and the same would be said by someone who used to work for a municipal water facility.  Nothing is completely clean, we just have to make the best play we can based on what we know to be true.

                      That is true.  But far far far far far far far fewer germs than are already all over your body, hands, mouth, in the air around you, on your pillow, on your toothbrush, the bathroom door handle, your forks and knives, in your potato chips, on your running shoes.  And almost none of those germs are actually pathogenic. Most of them, in fact, are helpful.

                        Say what you want man, but I rate my health and wellbeing pretty highly, and to drink from the cesspool of reusable glassware or bottles is simply too risky for me.

                          Back when I worked in retail there was discussion that certain chocolate manufacturers allow more bug parts/# than others did.  The particular discussion we were having was re: Godiva.  I don't recall now how Godiva fared vs. other companies...and I don't care.  Their buggy chocolate is yummy.

                            True.  And since tap water has to meet cleanliness standards that bottled water does not, the tap water is likely the safer option.

                              Fair enough.  I like to live on the edge.

                                Agreed -- there are germs everywhere.  We have to do what we can to minimize contact with them.  This includes things like drinking bottled water, using plastic forks and knives, opening the bathroom door with a paper towel, and washing our pillowcases weekly.

                                 

                                It is inconceivable to think that one could avoid contact with all germs.  But a rational person will do what they can, and will not drink tap water from refillable glassware.
