Minerals are esential for life but not in the water
02 June 2009 @ 21:38

Maria, asked me days ago- sorry for the delay- about mineral water. The are several reasons why I said they are not the best water we can get. First, because  most of the bottles used to sell mineral waters normally are plastics, this are made of PET (Polyethylene Terephtalate) and a dangerous material used as catalyst for the manufacture of the abovementioned PET : Antimony trioxide (a compound of antimony) "filter" into the water, mainly because of high temperature (over 18ºC) and also due to longer periods of water in the plastic bottle. Don't you agree water taste awful when you drink of a bottle you forgot in the car during few days?. Also this contamination is produced  when the plastic bottle suffer of knockings. There are huge amounts of information about it in the web. For example, the research made by Dr. Ch. Reimann from Norway, leader of the Euro Geo Surveys Group, which toghether with his colegues of different european countries analized about 1500 differents marks of mineral waters and the results are that most of the waters are contaminated by small amounts of antimony, highly dangerous for human health; there are also other repports about the issue, saying that this is one of the reasons of breast cancer in women. Mineral waters are good in the spring, in the origin, at the balnearies, nice natural pools,where they come from,  NOT in the plastic botlles.

But, the minerals are essentials to life, isn't it?.  Yes, but  the water is not the best way to get them. Our knees dosn't like either; It is better to get the minerals we need from other sources : fruits, vegetables, beans, etc.. 

Best regards,

Joaquín

But they are sold as very good and valued waters at an expensive price somtimes... why is it? Are they as good/or bad as tap water?

You wouldn't want to drink the water from the taps in our village...there are just three potable water outlets in the village or you drink bottled water...
In Vancouver and Seattle the sale of bottled water has been banned. City authorities say its because of the problems recycling the bottles; but you don't see them banning the sale of Coca-Cola or Pepsi using the same bottles. A move like this scares the hell out of me because whilst Coke and Pepsi are optional drinks, water isn't and once you cut off the supply of alternate sources you are stuck with the water supplied by the local authority which they can fluoridate, chlorinate and anything else-inate. Water sources worldwide close to pharmaceutical manufacturing plants have been found to contain high levels of antibiotics and toxic chemicals which no amount of heat treatment or filtering can get rid of... So excuse me if I carry on drinking the bottled stuff...
