The Shocking Truth: What’s REALLY In Your Bottled Water? – Saturday Strategy
POSTED ON December 2, 2016 BY Drew Canole
Americans drink over eight billion gallons of this stuff every year. It’s refreshing, convenient, calorie-free… and there’s usually a pretty little picture of a mountain stream on it to signify its origins.
But did your bottle of water really come from a far away mountain in the swiss alps?
Large water companies including Dasani, Nestle and Aquafina have all admitted drawing their water from LOCAL sources. Researchers found that 25% of bottled water is nothing more than TAP WATER.
They even found that labels claiming “pure glacier water” came from public water systems in Alaska. A reported 60-70% of bottled water that is made and sold in state is not safety regulated by the FDA.

Most bottles for bottled water are stored in 1 PET or PET type plastic. Although this is considered a “safe” plastic… scientists have found that if left in hot or warm areas for long (say in the back on a transport semi… or in the back of your car in the summer), that materials from the plastic actually LEACH into the water!
That means, when you drink a bottled water that has sat out in warm temperatures, you are also drinking PLASTIC.
Plastic has long been known as an endocrine disrupter, taking blame for everything from hormone disruption to infertility to cancer.
Needless to say, it has enough red flags that you certainly do NOT want to be drinking it.
“Okay Drew, so now even the water I drink is bad… what in the world am I supposed to do about it?”
Here’s a few good solutions:
Alkaline water is water rich in alkalizing compounds like calcium, silica, potassium, magnesium and bicarbonate. It is less acidic than tap water, usually with a pH above 7.
If you do need to buy plastic bottled water, the following three companies were the only ones to receive good ratings from the EWG for transparency in where their water came from, how it was purified and if any contaminants were found:
Just a heads up according to this report San Diego is 92nd on the list.
