Bottled Water Is More Dangerous Than Tap Water 1/7/2013  

Bottled water costs substantially more than what comes from the tap but is not healthier for consumers, a study has suggested.

Researchers found the bottled variety is subject to far less-stringent safety tests than tap water and is much more likely to be contaminated or become a source of infection.

While tap water must be checked daily under a rigorous inspection regime, by contrast, bottled makers are only required to undertake monthly testing at source, it was claimed.

Tap water also contains trace amounts of chlorine that prevent the spread of anything harmful such as bacterial infections, it was reported.

But once filled and sealed, a bottle of water might remain in storage for months before it is sold and contains no disinfecting additives such as chlorine.

After a bottle of water is opened it has no way of remaining sterile and so must be drunk within days. It can cost up to thousands more.

“Water coming from U.K. taps is the most stringently-tested in the world,” said Prof Paul Younger, of Glasgow University.

“People think there must be something wrong with tap water because it is so cheap and plentiful. But from a safety and price perspective, tap water is better for you.

“If the bottle is accidentally opened or someone tampers with it, then it can easily get contaminated.”

Prof Younger, the author of "Water: All That Matters," added to the Daily Mail: “There's certainly a greater chance you could find something harmful in bottled water than from your taps.

“Ideally it should be drunk on the day it is opened, as it can easily pick up bacteria from someone's hands or face.”

It is estimated that Britons spend about £1.5 billion on bottled water each year. Experts say that we drink 33 litres of bottled water annually, whether ordinary mineral, fizzy, or 'purified' tap water”.

Market researchers Mintel have found that almost a quarter of people who drink bottled water at home say they do so because they believe it is "better for them" than tap water.

Sue Pennison of the Drinking Water Inspectorate, which audits household supplies, told the newspaper that out of more than four million samples of tap water last year, 99.96 percent passed strict standards.

She said: “Tap water is safe to drink, everything else is a personal lifestyle choice.”

But Jo Jacobius, director of British Bottled Water Producers, said all water available in Britain was “highly regulated and generally of good quality.”

Most bottled water companies test their products on a daily basis.

Natural bottled mineral water must come from an officially recognised underground spring, be bottled at source and cannot be treated or filtered.

Spring water must also be bottled at source, but it can be treated or filtered. Sourced from rivers, boreholes and springs, tap water is treated and put into supply or held through storage reservoirs.

 
     
家常便飯﹕飲水喉水 好過樽裝水 家有濾水器 8/19/2012  

【明報專訊】近日與友人談及家中食水的問題,發現原來真的有人以為樽裝水比較乾淨、無雜質,而買回家煲飯吃。

另外,還有一個很多網民在熱烈討論的樽裝水廣告。

其中,男女主角在家討論家事,女主角不開心,便拿着樽裝水猛灌!

一個本來因為攜帶方便而產生的飲品,現在竟給推廣作為家中飲料,實在匪而所思!真的搞錯了!

飲用樽裝水這個人類自90年代才普遍盛行的消費行為,在短短十數年間,已成為了一個各地政府均不能忽視的環境災難。根據環保署2010年的資料,我們每天送往堆填區的家居固體廢物中,其中77噸是PET(聚對酞酸乙二酯Polyethylene Terephthalate)膠樽。這些物質在自然界中需要數百甚至過千年的時間才能完全分解,對環境的傷害可想而知。大家也別以為我們努力回收便可以解決問題。至今,只有很少數目是成功回收的。另外PET膠樽也不像玻璃、鋁罐等,回收後能被循環再造(recycled),成為新的玻璃樽、汽水罐。PET 膠樽的回收是一個降級回收(down-cycled),再造也不能成為新的膠樽,而只能做成其他物品,如纖維、地墊、膠水管等。當這些物品壽命完結後,一如其他塑膠廢物,也只能給送往堆填區!

膠質溶水 多喝無益

其實水質方面,香港水喉水是不會給樽裝水比下去的。首先,適當的飲用水需要一些基本的礦物質,如鈣、鎂等,這是世界衛生組織(World Health Organization,WHO)的建議(Kozisek, 2005*)。故「清純」的蒸餾水絕對不適宜長期飲用。另外,PET能溶入水中,專家指出這物質是荷爾蒙干擾素,能擾亂體內荷爾蒙的平衡,增加患上慢性疾病(如癌症)的機會(Sax, 2010*),實在多喝無益。

至於水喉水有雜質的問題,這大多是因為從水廠輸往家中途中,喉管、水缸的情况比較難受控制。只要在家中水龍頭安裝一個點的濾水設施便可以解決。這些濾水器由數百元的水龍頭濾水器至數萬元的電解水器都有。

一個適合的過濾器,底線是必須可以過濾水中的雜質和氯氣。消費者委員會在2005年發表了一份分析市面上濾水器的報告(《選擇》月刋,第340期,可以從網上下載)。大家可以參考一下。除了以上兩點,過濾水每分鐘流量(太慢的話,煮飯時要用便急死)、有多少支濾芯、多久才換一次、大小(有些大如一個小微波爐,地方便是一個問題)、要桌上或枱下安裝、要不要拿出來洗(多支濾芯的通常需要洗第一支)、首次安裝費、濾芯的價錢、濾芯是否很容易買得到等都是需要考慮的因素。很多比較好的,售價約二、三千元。 用濾水器便有乾淨水喝,非常方便。出外便帶一個水樽載着家中過濾了的水,對自己健康又好,對環境又好,何樂而不為呢!
