Is bottled water unhealthy?!

Question: Is bottled water unhealthy?
Ok so I read somewhere that bottled water can be harmful over the long term? Spring waters have concentrations of radon which is the second largest cause of lung cancer behind smoking (so I am told). Apparently it is common in natural springs, where much bottled water is sourced from. So I'm just curious if I should avoid it or not?


Most bottled water isn't unhealthy. What you should really know about bottled water is that it's a complete waste of money! Most bottled water is bottled tap water. No different than you putting a bottle under your sink and filling it up. Also, all the waste you create discarding the empty plastic water bottles. You're much better off going and getting a Brita personal water bottle with a built in filter at the store and going that route. It's cheaper in the long run, safer on the environment, and overall a better choice.

Life or something like it.

no, bottled water is not unhealthy. it's just that the plastic bottles usually end up in a landfill and there are better options like using filtered water for drinking, and also cheaper alternatives.

It depends on what kind of water

no way

right..............the stupid made my nose bleed!
