Questions and Answers about Bottled Water:
Question: I am doing fine as long as I consume water when I am thirsty?
You are far behind your body’s requirement for water if you wait to drink until you are thirsty. It is recommended to consume at least 8 glasses of water each day. You are expected to consume more if you are active.
Question: The quality of tap and bottled water is the same?
Tap water is tested at its source and / or at the water treatment plant. However, what comes out from your tap may not necessarily be the same as what was tested at the plant. In many cases, the water, after leaving a treatment plant, must travel through long distance of pipe, where it can pick up dirt or rust or odors.
On the other hand, the water that you get in bottled water produced by a certified bottler is exactly the same as what was tested in the plant.
