Bottled water can cause some serious health problems. Most people think what can a bottled water do to our health?. In the article, “Your plastic water bottle may actually be making you gain weight” Lizzy Hill explained that many of the plastic used to make plastic bottles may contain compounds called bisphenol A (BPA). A chemical compound has been shown to promote the formation and growth of fat cells. In one study, scientists extracted and isolated cells from the hips, thighs or abdomen of female volunteers. Then, these cells were exposed to BPA for about 2 weeks. The results show that they have a significant increase in fat compared to other cells. (Hill 2016). Consumers chose bottled water for their top diet. But they don’t know bottled water making them gaining weight by drinking it. Why drinking bottled water when it’s making you gaining weight instead of dieting? We don’t what really in bottled water. Guthrie the author of the article “Are you drinking clean water?” disputes that “Bottled water companies increasingly use BPA-free plastic, but laced into plastic bottles are other chemicals that can seep out if bottles are exposed to heat or sit around for a long time. Some of these chemicals are possible endocrine disruptors. No one knows for sure what the health outcomes are. Do you really want your body to undergo that experiment” Many people have a habit of keeping bottled water in the car. They think if there’s an emergency they can use it. They don’t know how harmful a plastic bottled water could harmful for their health. Some bottled water may not meet hygienic stands and might contain harmful bacteria with high temperatures in cars that may help the bacteria growing faster. Water contained in plastic bottles that stay too long or frequently exposed to heat, plastic bottles can release chemicals such as BPA and dioxin into the water. By drinking water containing these substances can increase the risk of developing tumors and cancer. In the Ellen show, Sheryl Crow mentioned, “that this is what caused her breast cancer” (Emery 2007). Test results have identified high levels of dioxin (C4H4O2) in breast cancer tissue. Currently, many people have the habit of reusing disposable mineral bottled water but unknown it is poisoning. The quality standards of these bottles are only guaranteed for one-time use. It is important to mention that if you need your bottled water longer, it should not be more than a week and keep away from the heat source is best. High temperatures in the environment have catalyzes the chemical reaction of the bottle resin that dissolved the dioxin in water. When BPA and other toxins are absorbed into the body through bottled water, they are taken by the blood throughout the body and cause damage to the internal organs. For instance, the liver is one of the most affected by it as a filter and excreta. If this happens for a long time, it will increase the pressure on the liver, impair the liver function and lead to serious consequences. For the most part, The chemicals used in the manufacture of plastic bottles can cause serious health problems and should be banned.
