Soft PET Bottles Leach Chemicals
If you are still drinking soda, juice or water from soft plastic PET bottles, now is the time to stop. A new study was just published that shows there were five major toxins discovered in those bottles including the heavy metals lead and cadmium. When you combine that with the horrible ways that soda fizzles your health, ionized water in a polycarbonate or glass bottle is the clear choice.
All India Institute of Hygiene and Public Health found cadmium, chromium, lead, antimony, and DEHP in Pepsi, Coca-Cola, Sprite, Mountain Dew, and 7-UP. All were packaged in polyethylene terephthalate bottles or PET bottles. The researchers also found that more toxins released into the drinks when the PET was heated.
Heavy Metals are Major Health Risks
Exposure to heavy metals can cause you some serious health issues. The World Health Organization says that cadmium in lead are two of 10 chemicals that they consider major public health concerns.
At higher levels, lead attacks the brain. It also attacks the central nervous system and can cause a coma, convulsions and even death. When children are exposed to lead, they are in danger of developing mental retardation and behavioral disorders. Cadmium, on the other hand, is very toxic for your kidneys. It is also a danger to your skeletal and respiratory systems and is classified as a carcinogen, meaning that it can cause cancer.
You should know that it’s not just soda and bottled water that is bottled in PET bottles. Juice, sports drinks and some medicines are also bottled in these bottles. You should avoid any soft bottle plastic packaging and only consume beverages or take medicine that is stored in a hard plastic, like polycarbonate, or glass.
Considering all of the empty calories, acidity, preservatives, and other chemicals that are found in soda. Plus all the extra calories and sugars in juices and sports drinks… Isn’t the smarter choice to drink a really high quality water?
