We thought we were safe from contaminants by drinking Bottled Water. Today , the World Health Organization launched a review after research discovered MICROPLASTICS in 90%. Concentrations as high as 10 tiny pieces per litre, some the size of a human hair. Well known brands like Evian , Aquafina Nestle’ Pure life and Pellegrino among others were tested.
Of all the bottles tested, 17 were found to have no particles at all while many had counts ranging into the hundreds or even thousands, with big differences within brands and even the same pack of bottles
Researchers point out that ome of these particles are so incredibly small that they can actually make their way across the gastro-intestinal tract, across the lining and be carried throughout the body, and we don’t know the implications of what that means on our various organs and tissues. Not to alarm anyone , but the U.K. Food Standards Agency, states that the jury was out on whether microplastics could cause harm.
