How safe is your bottled water?

Researchers at the State University of New York have punctured the belief about the safety of bottled water. After analysing over 250 bottled water (products of 11 global brands) purchased from nine countries in five continents, researchers came up with the startling revelation that 93% were contaminated, with each litre containing between 10 and 325 microplastics.

In one particular case, a litre of Nestle water was said to contain an unbelievable 10,000 microplastics.

It is not clear yet how these microplastics affect human health. However, health authorities around the world and WHO are in a frenzy to do a follow up study so as to provide urgent answers.
