5 Shocking Facts About The Water You Drink

Many adults love to talk about how they can’t even function without coffee. You may have seen “Don’t talk to me until after my third cup” printed on a coworker’s favorite mug. And while Americans certainly do love a delicious cup of joe, there’s one beverage that we literally cannot function without: water. 

Perhaps that’s why a recent survey found bottled water is the number 1 preferred beverage by Americans, with coffee taking 2nd place. 

Water is the building block of life. You can only survive from 2-7 days without it. That estimate is rough, because factors like a person’s health or level of physical activity come into play, but the fact remains -- we need water to live. 

That doesn’t mean all drinking water is created equally. Most people assume bottled water is the safest way to go, but that may not be the case, according to science. And tap water, it turns out, isn’t much better. 

There’s a lot you may not know about water -- and a lot you should. I’ve put together the following list I hope is helpful to you. 

5 Shocking Facts About The Water You Drink

1) Bottled water brands don’t meet quality standards. 

According to a study done by the National Resources Defence Council, more than one-third of bottled water brands violate the industry standards for water quality. The NRDC concluded that 33% of the bottled water they tested violated enforced state standards or exceeded microbiological purity guidelines. 

2) Bottled water contains bits of plastic. 

According to a 2018 study released by Orb Media, a liter of bottled water from big brands like Dasani, Aquafina and Nestle, contains about 10.4 plastic particles. Another study tested 11 of the most massive brands of bottled water and found that the the average was 314 particles per liter that had probable odds of being plastic. 

And those are just the ones we know about: researchers think there are likely smaller bits of plastic we’re also ingesting -- they’re just too tiny to detect. 

3) America’s water supply is largely contaminated. 

Bottled water can be dangerous, but that doesn’t mean tap water is healthy by default. Some cities’ water service lines still contain traces of lead, despite lead service lines being banned from new plumbing systems in 1986. Almost one-third of US water systems are known to contain lead service lines. Other systems contain known toxins such as arsenic, copper, chlorine and radioactive substances -- all of which can severely harm the body. 

4) Bottled water costs way more than you think.

You may think “a dollar here, a dollar there, what’s the harm?” when it comes to the cost of bottled water, but those little purchases add up. And for most Americans, it’s a much larger bill than we imagined. Bottled water is literally thousands of times more expensive than tap water. Tap water costs $0.004 per gallon, while bottled water is about $11.60 a gallon. That equates to bottled water being about 2,900 times more expensive than tap water. 

Put another way: if your water utility charged you as much as bottled water costs, your monthly water bill would be $9,000. 

5) Drinking the wrong kind of water in the morning can ruin your day. 

Now the problem is, we’ve already established that tap water can be very, very unhealthy. So what should you do when you get out of bed and immediately feel the need to hydrate? 

This is an important question, because science says if you drink the wrong water, you’ll be tired all day, have a lack of focus, and feel less than 100%. 

However, there’s one special kind of water that, if you drink in the morning, will help you feel energized, clear-headed, and ready to take on the day. 

And if you drink this one type of water for enough days in a row, you’ll notice your skin looks younger and smoother, too! 

Recent research proves this is true.
