The Bottled Up Truth About Water

The Truth About Tap Water Vs Bottled Water

Updated 08/11

If you read my article, The “Pimp” Juice Conspiracy… then you know that there is a “secret” ingredient that is in the water supply that is doing much damage to many people.  But then on the other hand, tap water has a LOT of things in it that are bad for your health.  So… Bottled Water is a good healthy alternative, right? 

But wait… is bottled water really “spring” water like it is advertised.  Is it really just filtered tap water?  Is it healthy to drink from water bottled made by the petroleum industry?  These are all questions that must be dealt with! 

Did you know that a recent EWG (Environmental Working Group) survey showed that out of 173 unique bottled water companies, only THREE of them actually disclosed where their water comes from and a third of these companies don’t tell you how there water is even treated or purified? Did you also know that there are more regulations for tap water than there are for all bottled water? Consider the following information.

This documentary goes even deeper into what is going on behind the scenes with the bottle water that we consume as well as the corruption of the bottled water industry.  Below is the trailer.

For more on this documentary, you can go to the Tapped Film Profile Page on YouTube. You can also watch the Tapped documentary online below.

The Story of Bottled Water

From the Makers of The Story of Stuff, comes the following clip that explores the truth about bottled water.  This clip also goes into detail about the processes that bottled water goes through before it hits the stores.

The following is a clip from Dr. Mercola  It explores the ramifications of bottled water on the environment, and the health of people who consume it.  It also goes in depth on the cost of bottled water (manufacturing etc.. )

Now… my purpose in doing this post is not for you to come to the conclusion that tap water is safe… because it’s not. But bottled water is NO BETTER… and in many cases is worse! You can filter your own water at home. You can use a simple Brita or Pur Water filter and be a lot better off than drinking from the bottle. But my recommendation is for you to get a reverse osmosis filter, as it is the only filter that I know of to get rid of Fluoride (a.k.a. “Pimp” Juice)
