BOTTLED VS TAP WATER
Do you spend the extra money on bottled water? The photos on the bottle bring to mind the idea of health, with the photos of fresh springs and mountains, but where does that water really come from?
I have a few issues with bottled water…
1. The plastic that embraces the water is estrogenic.
Most of the clients I see are estrogen dominant and it takes time and detoxing to get rid of it (there are 3 types of estrogen and I am referring to the bad estrogen). Especially when the plastic water bottles are sitting in a hot semi while being shipped to the stores, that water becomes estrogenic to our body. The heat reacts with the chemicals in the plastic of the bottle which releases dioxin into the water. Dioxin is a toxin increasingly found in breast cancer tissue (microwaving in plastic and using plastic wrap on hot foods also produces dioxin). Even men are at risk for absorbing excess estrogen in their cells. Signs of estrogen dominance are belly fat, headaches, migraines, hypothyroidism, low libido, cystic acne (especially around the mouth), PMS, and fibroids, just to name a few. Don’t waste your time getting tested for excess estrogen, it is NOT accurate. Those blood tests can not measure the estrogen hidden in the fat cells.
I never recommend drinking from plastic. I use a glass water bottle like the one in the photo: Click HERE to find.

2. It is NOT healthier than tap water.
As you can clearly see in the chart, the regulations for bottle vs tap water are clear. Another important piece of information to point out is that bottled water in the US falls under the regulatory authority of the FDA, but on average 70% of bottled water never crosses state lines for sale, making it exempt from FDA oversight.
3. It creates a lot of garbage!
It has been shown that over 80% of plastic water bottles are thrown in the garbage, despite all of the efforts to make recycling easier for consumers.
4. IT IS EXPENSIVE!
Instead, spend your money on a glass water bottle (or 3… I have many with me at all times). Instead of spending your money on bottled water, invest in a filter on your tap. Reverse osmosis water is best. Getting rid of fluoride and chlorine in your water is important. These two minerals are known causes of thyroid disorders. I also would seriously consider investing in a Reverse Osmosis water filter to get rid of all chlorine and fluoride in the water you drink. Click HERE to find.
5. There are more than 24,000 chemicals found in bottled water!
What are your thoughts on fermented soy?
What about the Camelback bottles that you refill? Are they bad? Each member of the household has one and brings it to school and activities.
They are most likely plastic lined so I would avoid. 🙂
wow thanks for the great information maria. I appreciate it. now I have something to pass on to others, who just won’t listen when I describe the dangers of plastic. plastic is plastic and I don’t trust the manufacturers, so personally I use glass and then I don’t have to worry about it. thanks again for all the detailed information.
What about Culligan delivered water?
Not sure about quality of their water, but they are still in plastic jugs. 🙂
I live near the beach. Our tap water is very sulfuric and HARD. Oh, and it tastes horrible. What should we do?
I would get a reverse osmosis filter. Or at least a carbon filter. 😉
I am so thankful we have an artesian spring !
What about boiling the tap water before using in glass or Klean Kanteen (stainless steel) containers?
A filter is best. Boiling won’t remove chemicals (fluoride, etc). 🙂
What about using Pur water filters for the tap water?
That is an ok option. But watch the plastic pitchers. You can filter and transfer to a glass or metal pitcher. 🙂
What about stainless steel thermos? I have a glass bottle but when it’s filled with water is super heavy 🙁 Where did You buy that one that is on the picture of this post? Thanks 🙂
Yes, stainless is a good option. I got mine here:
One of my favorite things is Perrier water with lime. Is that bad for us too?
I would get the glass bottles;)
