Common water contaminants that affect the quality of our water consist of:
The National Resource Defense Council tested more than 1000 samples of 103 brands of bottled water
and found that an estimated 25% of the bottled water is really just tap water in a bottle – sometimes treated,
Bottled water, because it is defined as "food" under federal regulations, is under the authority of the FDA while the EPA – under much stricter standards – regulates tap water. While municipal water systems must test their water several times a day, bottled water companies are required to test for these microbes only once a week.
Even under the more lax standards of the FDA, bottled water companies do not always comply with
standardized contaminant levels. Alarmingly, a study also found that 18 of the 103 bottled water
brands tested contained, in at least one sample, more bacteria than allowed in microbiological-purity
In conclusion, there is absolutely no gaurantee that bottled water is safer than tap water; in fact, a number of
studies have demonstrated that bottled water is less safe than tap water.
