    Dangers of Re - Using Plastic Mineral Water Bottles!!!


    Dangers of Re - Using Plastic Mineral Water Bottles!!!-18617_438298449561815_1927225535_n.jpg


    Do you often buy
    plastic mineral water bottles from the market?? And do you re-use them for carrying water for a long period of time?? Then wait!! You are inviting some serious dangers for your health. For this, we can't blame the companies, they have to sell water, not the bottles. So, its our duty to be fully aware of the products we use, and more than that, the ones we re-use. As bit of negligence can pose a life-threatening alert on your well-being. Here is the detailed study on this issue :

    How Plastic Mineral Water Bottle Affects your Health?

    The plastic used in these bottles is called PET (polyethylene terephthalate). It contains a carcinogenic element known asDEHA (diethylhydroxylamine). So, if you use these bottles by repeatedly washing them for many days, then this element leaks in the water. It puts you to the risk of a Cancerous disease. This problem has happened to a 12-year old girl, in Dubai. She used a fancy SAFA mineral water bottle to her school for around 16 months and ended-up suffering from this severe disorder.


    You can avoid this trouble by checking a number, in the triangle sign, on the bottom part of these bottles. If this figure is more than or equal to 5, then its safe for use. But if its less than 5 then it can release DEHA chemical. Remember, its not the water that causes danger, rather its the chemical which is the real culprit.


    So, if you want to use a bottle for a longer span then buy the ones which are made for this purpose only. And avoid using mineral water bottles for this motive at all as precaution is always better than cure.

    Correctly said Gkarti. I fully agree with. For that matter, the costliest tupperware water bottles are safe or not. If you know something about these safety content of these tupperware waterbottles please throw some light/thanks

    Re: Dangers of Re - Using Plastic Mineral Water Bottles!!!

    Many are unaware of poisoning caused by re-using plastic bottles. Some of you may be in the habit of using and re-using your disposable mineral water bottles (eg. Evian, Aqua, Ice Mountain, Vita, etc), keeping them in your car or at work. Not a good idea. In a nutshell, the plastic (called polyethylene terephthalate or PET) used in these bottles contains a potentially carcinogenic element (something called diethylhydroxylamine or DEHA).

    The bottles are safe for one-time use only; if you must keep them longer, it should be or no more than a few days, a week max, and keep them away from heat as well. Repeated washing and rinsing can cause the plastic to break down and the carcinogens (cancer- causing chemical agents)can leach into the water that YOU are drinking. Better to invest in water bottles that are really meant for multiple uses. This is not something we should be scrimping on. Those of you with family - please advise them, especially for their children's sake."
