More Reasons to Avoid Bottled Water

Back in January, I had pointed out at least 4 reasons to avoid excessive drinking of bottled water. Now, there's another reason...there are contaminants in bottled water. While the water is still within EPA standards, and thus, legally safe, it really is no purer than standard tap water. (thanks to a faithful reader pointing this out in the comments section...I felt it should be highlighted).

P.S. Have you noticed that many of the bottles have gone to these hourglass-shaped designs? The claim is that it reduces the amount of plastic used to make the bottle by about 30%. Nice move by the companies (financially and for the environment).
