Just when you thought it was safe to drink bottled water again a new study conducted by scientists from Nanjing University and the University of Florida say “maybe not”. While many brands have worked hard to eliminate BPA from their bottles researchers still found amounts of Antimony, a trace heavy metal which has been found to play a role in lung, heart and gastrointestinal diseases. The higher the temperature tested, the higher the amounts showed up in the water, getting as high as four times the level recommended by the EPA. So, time to buy a new water bottle and fill it up from a Britta pitcher!
