Plastic Particles Found in Bottled Water?

Be careful, and don’t believe everything you read. A recent study from Orb Media, a non-profit journalism organization, has claimed 93% of bottled water tested has shown “some sign of microplastic contamination.” They don’t tell you that microplastics are found everywhere across the environment in soil, air and water. It also means you have been consuming the tiny particles in anything you ingest. What the study does show, is there is a lack of knowledge of the microplastic contamination. Smaller particles have even been deemed, “probably plastic” because the test is inconclusive.

The International Bottled Water Association (IBWA), British Soft Drink Association (BSDA), Pepsico, Coca Cola, Nestles and Danone have all responded to the study, and stand by the safety of bottled water and adherence with regulations.

The IBWA has stated that Orb Media “has preconceived positions on issues….the study’s “probably plastic” findings are weak at best and reporting it as news is alarmist and not responsible journalism”.

The World Health Organization plans to launch a review into potential risks of plastic in drinking water, but right now, it seems the jury is out.
