Do you drink water? Congratulations: you are drinking plastic

Boiling makes the water more safe for health. It would seem that this statement is not in doubt, but the current environmental situation is different. According to a large-scale study conducted by a group of scientists daily along with drinking water we consume and plastic. And it concerns not only bottled water as you would think, but water is "natural".

If fact, where does the plastic in water bottles, to explain it is hardly necessary, here, natural springs and all the more interesting! As you know, the plastic decomposes several hundred years, and it means that the package is thrown, say, 50 years ago, "gave" part himself to nature. A lot of landfills with disposable utensils, plastic bottles, cellophane and other plastics annually gradually decompose into the soil, and from there into the water. Moreover, incineration of plastic waste there is no escape: caustic vapors and combustion products falls as precipitation along with the rain.

According to scientists, more than 80% of all drinking water samples taken on five continents, contain harmful toxic plastic particles. Thus, with each drunk a glass of water a person drinks and synthetic substances to digest, have an extremely negative impact on the body. And the size of these particles may seem insignificant (less than 0.1 micrometer), but at norm of consumption is 2-2,5 liters of water a day for a year plastic "accumulates" a lot. Products of plastic, if ingested, can cause disturbances in the endocrine system, the deterioration of the skin, hair, nails and internal organs. But this is not the worst: boiling water only exacerbates the situation. The fact that under high temperatures plastic emits a lot of toxins that cannot be filtered by conventional methods.
