When we buy bottled water in the supermarket, we never check the bottle. This is true for each one of us. Fortunately, experts will give us some advice about this matter.
They say that if you check the bottle at the bottom, it can preserve your health.
The manufactures must mark all the content of the water. Check and you will notice that all the plastic bottles have labeled HDPE, HDP or PP. This means that these bottles do not free toxins in the water and are safe to use. And if you notice other letters it means that they have chemicals in the water.
Read further more in the article to find out which water is safe to use and which to avoid buying.
Look for this when you decide which water to purchase:
- PETE or PET
If you see these letters it means that the bottles free chemical and heavy metals which can influence the production of the body hormones.
- HDPE or HDP
These labeled letters mean that this bottle is safe to use. You can freely purchase this product because it is healthy and it does not free any toxins and chemicals in the water.
- PVC or 3V
PVC and 3V are very toxic substances and they interrupt the hormonal balance so do not buy bottles with these letters.
This presents plastic that is free from chemicals, but LDPE is common for use to plastic bags not for bottles.
Syrup packages and yoghurt cups contain PP- which is white plastic or semi-transparent.
Coffee cups and fast food casings often have these letters on their label, and it means that they are carcinogens.
- PC or non-labelled
It is considered to be the most toxic plastic. This is used for sport water bottles and food containers and releases BPA in the content.
So protect your health and do not forget to check the bottom of the bottle that you buy.
