Contaminants Found Bottled Water...

Yesterday, Connecticut, New Jersey and Delaware urged baby bottle-makers to STOP using bisphenol-A (BPA). Reacting to research claiming BPA exposure causes learning impairments and depression.

And now, a new study discovered the SAME contaminants in tap water, turned up in popular brands of BOTTLED water, immediately challenging the belief that bottled water is purer; the Associated Press reports.

A similar story broke last year. Pepsi had to admit that its bottled water brand, Aquafina, is actually TAP water; responding to heat from environmental watchdogs claiming plastic bottles HARM the planet.

Ditch the freaking plastic already! Get yourself a metal water bottle, I did.

I have a Brita pitcher. My neighbor has a Pur filter on his tap. Water tastes so much better. When I started using filtered water in my teakettle it dissolved years of hard water scale on the inside of it. Unfortunately I didn't realize it until I had a mouthful. No wonder I used to get kidney stones.
