Most individuals know by now that we all need to drink more water more regularly in order to stay well-hydrated and healthy, but this has resulted in many unscrupulous Companies trading on this new focus on health to use some ridiculous and often wholly untrue sales gimmicks in pursuit of the mighty dollar.
Individuals who are health-conscious but believe that Drinking ordinary tap water is not healthy because it contains toxins such as fluoride, heavy metals, chlorine by-products, and both recreational and pharmaceutical drugs are being taken for a ride by these companies.
Some of the underhand tactics utilised by bottled water companies include:
- Drinking bottled water is best after a workout. While it is important to hydrate well before and after an intense workout, there is absolutely no scientific proof that it is better to drink bottled water. Drinking tap water or water from a water cooler is perfectly good enough although drinking a sports drink to replace electrolytes such as potassium and sodium is recommended if your work out lasts longer than an hour.
- Bottled water with added minerals, vitamins, or proteins is healthier than tap water. Many companies claim that their bottled water contains added minerals, vitamins, or proteins which makes it far healthier than drinking tap water, but according to . Amy Subar, Ph.D., a nutritionist with the National Cancer Institute, even if these are added, the minimal amount in the water would make no difference at all.
- Bottled water bottles are recyclable. While this may be so, most individuals are basically inherently too lazy to recycle therefore most of the bottles still end up in landfills where they poison the earth for millennia to come. Also, the carbon footprint of manufacturing is massive.
- The water comes from some remote underground spring. While some bottled water may well come from a natural underground water source, it has been proven that many companies have just bottled that same tap water that you refuse to drink, slapped a pretty label on the bottle and are marketing it for a fortune.
