Your ‘Pure’ bottled water has contaminants, too
Study finds 38 chemicals in 10 brands, including
those common in tap water.
Tests on leading brands of bottled water turned up a
variety of contaminants, including cancer-linked chemicals three times higher than California's health standard, according
to a study released Wednesday by an environmental advocacy group.The findings challenge the popular impression — and
marketing pitch — that bottled water is purer than tap water, the researchers say.However, all the brands met federal
health standards for drinking water. And most of the detected contaminants are common in tap water, too.Lab tests detected
38 chemicals in 10 brands, with an average of eight contaminants found in each kind of bottled water. Tests showed coliform
bacteria, caffeine, the pain reliever acetaminophen, fertilizer, solvents, plastic-making chemicals and the radioactive element
strontium.The two-year study was done by the Washington-based Environmental Working Group, an organization founded by scientists
that advocates stricter regulation. It bought bottled water in California, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland and Delaware.Save
