Do You Have A False Sense of Security Drinking Bottled Water? You Shouldn’t!

proposition 65California has succeeded in getting BPA added to “Proposition 65” in an effort to WARN residents about the risks associated with this harmful chemical.  This is a bold step that will undoubtedly lead to multi-million dollar lawsuits from the beverage industry.  After all, if we’re crazy enough to keep buying toxic water they sure don’t want a silly regulation to get in the way!

If you aren’t familiar with “Proposition 65” read on to see the significance of BPA being added to this list:

What Is Proposition 65?

In 1986, California voters approved an initiative to address their growing concerns about exposure to toxic chemicals. That initiative became the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, better known by its original name of Proposition 65. Proposition 65 requires the State to publish a list of chemicals that are  known to cause cancer or birth defects or other reproductive harm. This list, which must be updated at least once a year, has grown to include approximately 800 chemicals since it was first published in 1987.

Proposition 65 requires businesses to notify Californians about significant amounts of chemicals in the products they purchase, in their homes or workplaces, or that are released into the environment. By providing this information, Proposition 65 enables Californians to make informed decisions about protecting themselves from exposure to these chemicals. Proposition 65 also prohibits California businesses from knowingly discharging significant amounts of listed chemicals into sources of drinking water.

There are lots of reasons that you and your family need to reconsider your water source,  not the least of which is that very container your water is packaged in is toxic  and it is doing  harm to all of you  in ways that you may not see in your own lifetime.

Our disposable world is wreaking havoc  and we need to make changes for the next generation NOW.   Do you care enough to make the effort?  I sure do.

      Bisphenol A (BPA)is used to make certain plastics and epoxy resins. It is known to cause cancer and it is a hormone disrupter. It is present in all plastic water (and soda) bottles.

    I am not also familiar with Proposition 65. I now think that we really must know about it. I also believe that it is our resposibility to care of our environment for the next generation. We should really take care of our natural resources especially the water resources. Thanks for sharing this article.

      Mark Twain said that “whiskey is for drinking, and water is for fighting”, and he was so right. We only have so much water to go around and we’ve destroyed our natural resources with plastics and pollution. The first, and most important step that anybody can take, is to invest in a water solution in their home and nix the other nonsense right along with the plastic bottles that never make it to recycling at all. Thanks for your comment today! Keep fighting!
