These types of articles are irresponsible and so very common. It is one long list of things that *may* contribute. He gives no data on how much a problem is actually caused. Just that all sorts of things *could* happen.
Lots of the issues he mentions could be important. But he says nothing actually helpful and concrete and nontheoretical about the problems.
And then it gets just stupid:
"When you open bottled water, it is no longer sterile and so sits like a stagnant pond attracting bacteria."
OK. And how many people have been made sick because they, you know, drank from an nonsterile bottle or cup? Seriously?
Which is immediately followed by,
"If you want to bottle your tap water once you have filtered it, an alternative is to buy an eco product such as the Bottle for Life, a BPA-free stainless steel bottle that you can fill up and keep in the fridge. "
So why is purchased bottled water a problem because it's no longer sterile after you open it, but if you bottle your own, it doesn't matter anymore?
And he finishes with,
"There's no point in any of us trying to eat healthily and exercise if we don't do something about our water. "
That's right. Chuck it in girls, there's no point to what we're doing.
