Bottled Water Found Contaminated with Medications, Fertilizer, Disinfection Chemicals

Natural News October 10, 2008 http://www.naturalnews.com/

Health Ranger comment: The Environmental Working Group has just released a surprising report on the discovery of numerous chemical contaminants in bottled water. One brand of bottled water caused a 78% increase in the growth of breast cancer cells. Every major brand was contaminated with cancer-causing chemicals.

The bottled water industry promotes an image of purity, but comprehensive testing by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) reveals a surprising array of chemical contaminants in every bottled water brand analyzed, including toxic byproducts of chlorination in Walmart’s Sam’s Choice and Giant Supermarket's Acadia brands, at levels no different than routinely found in tap water. Several Sam's Choice samples purchased in California exceeded legal limits for bottled water contaminants in that state. Cancer-causing contaminants in bottled water purchased in 5 states (North Carolina, California, Virginia, Delaware and Maryland) and the District of Columbia substantially exceeded the voluntary standards established by the bottled water industry.... more from Ewg.org: http://www.ewg.org/

I interviewed Tim Hickey on the bottled water disaster and this information is in To Your Health, August 2007: http://www.litalee.com/shopexd.asp?id=230 In this newsletter you will find surprising information on bottled water vs purified water & fluoride removal. An important fact is that there is no way to remove fluoride from your shower but there are good filters that remove everything else. I urge everyone to stop using bottled water and to buy a good water purifier. Doing this will save you lots of money and decrease the incredible contamination of our oceans with plastic that is lethal to marine life.
