According to a new investigation, nearly all bottled water contains microplastic particles. Researchers examined 250 bottles of water bought in nine different countries. They found an average of ten plastic particles per liter of water. Each particle was bigger than the width of a human hair. The tests were conducted at the State University of New York in Fredonia.
Not surprisingly, the highest amounts were found in the U.S. At issue is the way the bottles are produced and the water bottled.
Now the studies start to find out how the microplastics affect our bodies. It can’t be good… can it?
If this freaks you out, there are plenty of non-plastic options for you to use to drink water.
