You need to beware of what's lurking in your bottled water.
First of all, BEWARE of bottled water left in your car. Bottled water in your car is a health hazard! Never leave bottled water in
a car to overheat, because an overheated bottle will release dioxins into your water and dioxins are unhealthy to drink. The highly toxic compound of dioxins released into your water may cause cancer and chronic health issues.
Second, be aware that not all bottled waters were created equal. When you buy bottled water you may be buying water with chemicals added. Do you need or want pharmaceuticals in your water? And purified drinking water bottled by manufacturers is not as "pure" as you may think. While it may start as purified water, manufactures add chemical agents to "enhance" the flavor. You may be drinking Epsom salt, baking soda, sodium, or a host of other ingredients and not even know it. From now on, check your labels!
Brands of Waters with Added Chemicals
- Dasani: (Coca Cola) The Dasani label reads "purified water enhanced with
minerals for a pure, fresh taste." Dasani starts off in the right direction by
bottling water from the Coca Cola Company plant. Then they add magnesium
sulfate, potassium chloride, and salt. Let's break that down:
- magnesium sulfate is an inorganic salt made up of magnesium, sulfur
and oxygen. The common name for magnesium sulfate is Epsom salt.
Always talk with a physician before using Epsom salt, as this drug may
interact with other medications.
- potassium chloride is a chemical compound of potassium and chlorine,
which is used as a fertilizer, and even as a fire extinguishing agent!
- Salt: Dasani claims they add a negligible amount of sodium minerals
added. Yes, that's unnecessary sodium in your bottled water!
- Nestle PureLife Water. Nestle PureLife water begins as filtered water
(reverse osmosis or distillation), then they add minerals and call it "purified
water." The minerals Nestle adds includes calcium chloride, sodium
bicarbonate and magnesium sulfate.
- calcium chloride: is compound of salt of calcium and chlorine. It's a
food additive commonly used in sports drinks as an electrolyte. It is well-known that calcium chloride actually has several harmful effects on humans and pets. It was once used to melt ice on driveways.
- sodium bicarbonate: is a chemical compound of the common name for
sodium bicarbonate (also called sodium hydrogen) is baking soda.
- magnesium sulfate: Magnesium sulfate is an inorganic salt. In other
words, it's a man-made chemical compound. It is Epsom Salt! talk with
a physician before using, as Epsom salt may interact with other
- Smartwater (Glaceau, a Coca Cola company). Maybe SmartWater isn't so smart after all. It's water with electrolytes. Here's what you'll find in your SmartWater: "Vapor Distilled Water, Calcium Chloride and Magnesium Chloride and Potassium Bicarbonate (electrolyte sources*) *electrolytes added for taste." According to Wikipedia, "Magnesium chloride is a type of pharmaceutical preparation of magnesium." The word "harm" is in pharmaceutical. It is a drug. You are being medicated. Is that so smart?
